What a wonderful B & B the Westwood is. My wife is extremelly fussy and always checks review sites before we book. Having found the Westwood to have top marks we decided to book on our recent trip to Devon. Our room was was excellent , clean and nicely furnished, the breakfast was very good. The Owner and staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. Having read previous reviews we booked an evening meal at 11 The Quay and were not disappointed again we had excellent food and service, would recommend both. We noted one previous comment regarding the driveway approach at The Westwood and whilst it is tight I had no problem getting my XF Jaguar to the parking facilities.

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.
