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.

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

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

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

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.
