We had pre dinner drinks in the lounge bar and had a lovely 3 course meal which was excellent. The meals come with a good selection of vegetables too which is nice. Sarah was able to recommend wines to match... More

We wanted to go somewhere nice for an evening meal to celebrate, so decided on the Westlakes hotel as it looks so splendid from outside and reviews of the meal were great. We were not disappointed with the food, it was excellent and the serving staff very polite. They were friendly with guests but kept their distance without intruding on... More

Welcome on arrival was very good and the room was OK although the fittings were a little tired and bed could have been better, not helped by the fact that my colleague was shown to a much nicer looking room as I continued to the top floor. Meals (dinner & breakfast) were pretty good, but think more could have been... More

Went for a weekend evening meal special of 3 courses for £25. I was expecting not to have a choice at that price but it was choose off the menu which was fantastic. The food was lovely and fresh and the portions just right. The service was quick but not rushed and it was a lovely relaxed evening.

This was a little gem, to be honest, and a great time had with the lovely staff. The welcome was warm, the rooms were clean and very, very large, and overall everyone was attentive and kind. Slightly disappointing food menu, but breakfast was a lot better than dinner. Overall, very good.
