We stayed here for 3 nights in August 2011 with our 2 year old son. Helen is a lovely host and made us feel very welcome. The hotel is a refurbished Victorian property, lots of character but with a modern boutique style. Our bedroom was large, clean and well laid out - there was loads of room for the 3 of us (including our travel cot) and the bathroom had both a large bath and a separate shower. Bed was king sized and very comfortable - we all slept like logs as the house is set back from the road, which is quiet anyway.
Breakfast's here are fantastic. Yoghurt's, cereals, tea, coffee are all top quality and the cooked options are also excellent - perfect poached eggs, scrambled eggs and smoked salmon, full English.
Having visited Ilfracombe on childhood holidays it's good to return and see properties like Westwood being a part of the modernisation of the holiday industry in the town. It's easily walkable into town where there are plenty of restaurants - everybody knows about Damien Hirst's (which is good) but there are plenty of others of all types.
The Tunnels Beaches are very close to the hotel (modernised, with new cafe/restaurant and childrens play centre) and the North Devon coastal path is also close to the hotel.
In summary - lovely hotel, excellent host, loads to do. We hope to return and for longer next time.
