“Weekend stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

I have just spent 2 nights at the Westbrook with other family members to attend a family wedding nearby. The room was clean and comfortable with everything I needed. Breakfast was good and small children catered for very well.The on site parking is a bonus and it is close to the seafront and shops.

We have just returned from our 5th stay at the Westbrook. As usual we had a very comfortable room with everything you would need at hand, a good breakfast and left relaxed. There is parking which is a bonus and the beach is a short stroll away. You would not be disappointed.

Michael and Maureen were very welcoming.

We took our Grandchildren with us and there were plenty of games provided for them, which we found most usefull.

If we go to Torquay again we would book The Westbrook.

The breakfast menu was plentifull with a good variety of choice.

Made to feel really welcome, rooms were great, food was delicious. Close to all the places you'll need while being away, just a short walk to the beach. Every thing in the rooms that you'll need iron, ironing board, hair dryer ect... Fridge in the room was full of beers, wines, chocs, also having a safe in the rooms comes in handy too. Would recommend to anyone if torquay was the destination of choice.

A 4 night break to chill and relax was needed and we picked the right guest house in the Torquay area. Michael and Maureen were the perfect hosts and was around when we required information on the local area for entertainment and trips. Breakfast was cooked to perfection and they do use quality suppliers not large supermarket brands. We booked the 4 poster room and although the bed takes up a lot of the space there is still plenty of room to move around.
On our first breakfast my wife asked for hot water to put her green teabag in ( brought from home ), by the time we returned from a walk there was a box of green tea placed in our room. A lovely touch and much appreciated. Ideal location for evening entertainment if you do not want nightclubs and noise and other larger Hotels, of which there are plenty, allow non residents so we had different places to visit each night. The guest house was quiet day and night even though it was full and that makes a difference when you want to unwind. All in all we had a great stay with boat trips, local scene and walks along the coast and of course the service provided by the hosts. will be back!

, Owner at The Westbrook, responded to this review, July 2, 2012
Thank you so much for this lovely review, which is even more appreciated as I understand you are also in the industry. We love the area that we live in and as it was your first visit to the English Riviera we wanted you to enjoy as much as possible during your stay. We have lived here for a little over 7 years, and we are still finding wonderful places, so it really is impossible to fit everything in on a four day break, but it is great to go away from a place knowing that if you return there is still so much more to see. Thank you again, and we would welcome another visit when you are able to have another much needed break.

Maureen and Michael are resident owners of the The Westbrook, which is situated on a quiet street adjacent to the busy Belgrave Road in Torquay.

We are only five minutes walk from the Riviera Centre, Torre Abbey, Princess Theatre, seafront and town centre. All rooms are en suite and are well equipped with hospitality trays, radio alarm clocks, hair dryer, mini safes, fridges with minibars, iron/ironing board, Freeview TV and information folders. Our dining room provides separate tables with a choice of breakfasts, to include full English and continental. Home cooked dinners using local produce and suppliers, where possible, are available daily, except during July and August. We have a residential license, so we are able to serve drinks with dinner or in your room. Look for our special 'out of season' breaks, offering great value for money. We also do themed weekends, to include Valentines, Mothering Sunday, Easter, and Turkey & Tinsel. We do not take stag, hen, or single sex groups. ... more   less
