Paul and Mike made my stay very enjoyable. So should you be considering a stay in Torquay I would definitely recommend The Westgate. We had a lovely four poster bed and a very delicious breakfast. Thank you both.

rate this hotel high enough. see you in the summer lads!

I would recommend The Westgate to anyone, what a delightful place and situated just far enough from the town but still in walking distance. Paul and Mike are really welcoming and will go out of their way to accommodate your every need. Very clean and comfortable and the decor is very tasteful but the ceiling in the dining room has to be seen it is really different and so pretty a one off I would think so glad I chose the Westgate and I most certainly will return
