“BETTER THAN MOST”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014 via mobile

We were on a Travelzoo deal for one night i.e, dinner bed and breakfast on March 23rd. We were in Room No.1 which provided all the usual amenities. The lunch from the Bar menu albeit expensive was served piping hot on a 'slate plate' in front of an inglenook fireplace with a log fire. After a walk we returned to our room to prepare for dinner and noticed dirt and mould on the bathroom window woodwork but otherwise the bathroom area was clean. We took dinner in the restaurant where the service was very slow - later we learned that they were short staffed. Our meal started with Duck Compote? which didn't taste like duck, followed by a seafood dish which although being small in quantity was good on quality. The 'crumble' desert was lukewarm bordering on cold and unlike any 'crumble' we'd previously tasted but overall it was an ok meal. When we retired and turned back the bed it was obvious that the base sheet hadn't been ironed and was wrinkled throughout!!!!! We forgot to mention this when we checked out but it may be something that needs looking into? Room 1 door lock needs the attention of a master locksmith. Plenty of choice for breakfast and it was served on 'hot' plates. All the staff are attentive and friendly and our stay was very good value for money - despite our observations.

A group of 6 visited West Arms last week. We had a thoroughly delightful stay. Cosy rooms, good, helpful, friendly staff and oh fantastic food! Lovely cosy lounge with roaring fire, beautiful setting. Our only regret-didn't stay longer! Looking forward to our second visit as soon as we can. Thank you all at West Arms, keep up the fantastic work. Karen and the girls

We stayed for two nights on a deal. Very attentive staff, lovely log fires, cosy room, bath and a shower. Fabulous meal the first night, breakfast also delicious and varied. Beautiful setting in quiet rural village. Great for walks from the hotel. Recommended. Just one thing, the dinner was so good, we could have eaten it again....

Stayed overnight on a voucher deal - well worth the money. Stayed in a small but cosy twin room (our dog allowed also). Had a delicious 3 course evening meal - chef is highly talented. Staff very friendly and the hotel is very comfortable. Breakfast was tasty and lots of local produce used. Highly recommend - will go back again

We stayed two nights in a room at the back. It was quiet with great views down the valley. No problems parking, checking in was easy with knowledgable staff. We ate in both nights and the food was super first night in the Dining Room, second in the bar. Wi-fi worked well - better than the mobiles! All in all if the offers come up again we'd go again, is there a better recommendation?

Room Tip: Upstairs at the back.
