We visited the restaurant here for a family reunion. The hotel is wonderfully clean, even commented on by my mother! All the staff and owner were very friendly and helpful. The meals were well presented and tasty. The hotel had a deal on on this weekend which we took advantage off. Don't go for pub food when this is so... More

Staff we friendly from the start and made us feel more than welcome. Tea was gorgeous and the breakfast even better. Highly... More

On arrival we were greeted with a nice pot of fresh tea and home made shortbread in the lounge and imediatly felt at home in the huge leather sofa's. We were due to stay at the hotel for 3 nights and by bed time on the first night we felt like we'd known the owners years, they were so friendly... More

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. An anniversary weekend is special, so it is important that you were relaxed whilst we looked after you. It is just a shame that you didn't find any treasures in the garden!! We are really looking forward to seeing you again in the not too distant future. More

Although we only live 5 miles away and pass by the hotel almost every day we have never been inside but last night we came for an anniversary dinner and just wished we had 'found' the hotel years ago! From the moment we entered to the the time we left we were made welcome in comfortable and elegant surroundings and... More

Two rooms book for a party of three and what an absolutely fantastic welcome we got from the hosts. They couldn't do enough were so pleasant.

This has to be one of the best places I have stayed in. The hosts are very hospitable. The rooms are varied in size and layout, but well finished and equipped. If that is not enough the restaurant is not only well above the standard of most hotels, but is worth a visit in its own right.

Just spent a weekend at Westlakes with eleven other family members. From the moment we started to arrive on the Friday until we left on the Sunday the staff couldn't have been more helpful. A special mention to Sarah who seemed to be everywhere in making sure we were looked after. The hotel is in a great location for climbing... More

I held a half day meeting there today. We were in the Lowden room which was lovely and bright with separate areas for both coffee and lunch. The room had all the equipment needed, the staff were very welcoming and helpful without being OTT. The trainee Manager Sarah was a superb Host. Coffee was served with home made biscuits and... More

We spent two nights at Westlakes. Our room was extremely comfortable. Breakfast was tasty in the bright diningroom - don't forget that most people expect toast automatically with their breakfast and your staff seemed unacquainted with the idea that some guests might prefer Flora to butter for dietary reasons! On the Saturday evening we had a delicious meal in the... More

A warm welcome to diners in a cosy traditional lounge. Table bar service as you enjoy the menu options. The hotel was full as was the restaurant on the evening of my visit however due to keen management this was not even evident never mind a consideration. The owners were highly visible and overseeing the whole evening. The staff here... More
