Wonderful stay, I left calm, cool and collected - just like The Westwood - Helen the owner is a dream!

Wonderful place to stay. Only 10 minutes walk from the Harbour. Very warm welcome - Nothing too much trouble. Big and very,very comfotable rooms. Probably the nicest place to stay in Ilfracombe.

My other half and I thought we'd take advantage of the British sun recently and did the usual websearching for last minute deals. Based on tripadvisor feedback he selected Westwood and that selected the destination. After booking, I got a few raised eyebrows about going to Ilfracombe but we had a lovely time. Westwood is enchanting - the kind of place I wish I could live in. The owner went out of her way, providing local info and advice on things like dining out and the best walks etc. (even phoning round to check which local petrol station sells super unleaded....), popping up with fresh strawberries one evening and happily lending us a couple of wine glasses and a cooler to sit out on the garden furniture after a long day of doing everything and nothing. We relaxed so much we ended up staying an extra day! Ilfracombe perhaps wouldn't be for everyone, but Westwood made us consider giving it all up and buying a boutique B&B by the sea so we could keep that relaxed feeling ongoing...

We've just returned from a lovely bank holiday weekend spent at Westwood. Really cannot fault anything. We were met by the lovely Helen who brought us up a pot of tea whilst we settled into our room (which was beautifully decorated, clean and with everything you needed.) The whole house was light airy and furnished to a really high standard. The extra touches were really nice, such as DVDs provided in the room, a bottle of water next to your bed and an extra bathroom with roll top bath (our shower en suite was great but you can't beat a soak in the bath after an afternoon spent surfing!) I would recommend Westwood to anyone reading this (have already told all our friends about it...!) The breakfasts were yummy (I would recommend the bagel with scrambled egg and smoked salmon.) We also ate in Damien Hurst's restaurant one evening which is advertised on the Westwood website, beautiful views over the harbour and Bristol channel, and lovely food. PS. Just looking at past reviews the driveway really isn't that bad that to get up and down, if you don't fancy it there is plenty of parking on the road (just means you have to carry your bags up the steps!) Thank you Helen for a great weekend. Lorna and Lee

My wife and I have just spent 3 days at Westwood and I have to say we were not disappointed. Only booked the day before and chose this place due to previous reviews on trip advisor. We stayed in the main bedroom for 2 nights and bedroom 2 for the last night due to availability. Both rooms were superb , very modern , great views over Ilfracombe , stylish with flat screen TV , very comfortable beds and beautiful decor.Helen is a wonderful host and the breakfast is possibly one of the best we have experienved in a B&B.
The location is only a short walk in to town where there are some very nice restaurants.

We stopped off at Westwood and Ilfracombe on the way back from a week in Cornwall and had a really lovely couple of days.

Helen, the owner, is fantastic - she was full of advice on good eateries, good local walks etc. Our room itself was lovely - very clean, beautifully decorated, and with ample room and wardrobe space for our needs. We had a shower room attached, and there was a bath in a room just around the corner had we wanted it. The shared space was tastefully decorated, and welcoming.

Breakfast was great, with a choice of 4 options - full english, the westwood muffin (bacon and poached egg on an English muffin), bagel with egg and smoked salmon and continental. Warning: if you order the continental breakfast you might not want to see bread based food for a while - it contained croissant, bagel, toast - an amazing spread. The full english was tasty and not in the slightest bit greasy - a great start to the day.

The Westwood is a 5 minute easy walk down into the town centre and quay area.

Well worth a visit.
