“A happy experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We have just spent a wonderful weekend at The West Bay Hotel.
Everyone was very friendly and welcoming. A beautiful traditional pub, lovely modern 5 star accommodation with large comfy beds and large ensuite with walk in shower and to top it all - a huge traditional English breakfast, was one of many options offered.

Room Tip: our room was number 4 - not a sea view but still excellent.

We've been staying here for years, but this is the first time since the recent refurbishment. I have to say the rooms are very very good now, loads of space, everything new inside, no complaints at all, and the new superking size bed gave us the best nights sleep in a very long time. Breakfast was great (I tried different things each day, from smoked mackerel on toast to the full english, my wife just wanted tomatoes on toast most days as it was so well done) and the restaurant in the evening left us wanting to stay for another week!

Having receivced absolutely shocking service from the Bridport Arms Hotel - see separate review! - across the road, we tried this place. What a difference! Friendly staff, good beer and absolutely oustanding food and service. Ate there every night of our stay. Highly recommended!

This was the most delicious roast I have ever eaten and
dessert to die for.
Very friendly staff good service and good prices. Massive thick slices of tender meat, gravy that melted in your mouth, roast potatoes out of this world and all for only £10 what more could you want on a Sunday afternoon. I would recommend booking as it gets busy and you wouldn't want to miss out :)

After a long morning walk we stopped here for lunch - which was delicious! Good choice - one of our group was looking for veggie options and very much enjoyed the mushroom risotto. i had a superb beef sandwich ::-) Great atmosphere and service.

This hostelry doesn't really fit into any category. The recently upgraded room was comfortable & the adjoining bathroom spacious. The TV is up to date & internet access satisfactory. The single glazed windows are fine at this time of year but ... Breakfast was as requested and well prepared, but a little later than I would like as serving time is from 8:30 to 9:30. As for the restaurant, the food selection is very good and the quality of preparation & service equally commendable. Basically, this is an older style pub / hotel with good food & drink and a decent room upstairs.

Came here for dinner as a treat and loved it. Instead of having starter and main we decided to treat ourselves to an expensive main which we would normally so for a cheaper dish. I had the surf and turf which is steak and lobster, i had never tried lobster before and i really really enjoyed it. Also my steak was cooked perfectly medium! Best bit about the meal though was my sticky toffee pudding, so so good!
Its not the cheapest place to eat but you are paying for quality which makes it totally worth it
