“West is Best”

Our second visit to Westford House and just as good as the first. Clean, Tidy, centrally located. Only a short stagger to the Atlantic, Mermaid and Bishop pubs. Jo and Alan perfect hosts with a good choice for breakfast.

As General MacArthur said " I shall return".. Just after Easter 2013 once the kids have gone back to school !

We have recently returned from a 3 nights stay at Westford House. The location was excellent and a short distance from the town and harbour. We agree with other comments....the breakfast was amazing and the host couldn't do enough for us. The only comment we would make was our room a little cramped and on the small side but very cleam. Alll in all a lovely trip. Thank you

Room Tip: Room on the top floor at the back is a little small

We stayed 4 nights, spotlessly clean, breakfasts excellent and Jo & Alan couldn't do enough to help. The lounge room was a great space to go to relax and use when the weather was wet. The communal fridge was a great bonus too. We will definitely go back again.

Nothing was too much to ask of Jo and Alan. My 3 days at Westford were enhanced by Alans breakfasts and Jo's kindness and help in planning the day or finding a place to eat. I loved St Mary's and will stay there again if I return.

Room Tip: Room 3 has a bath. I believe the others have en suite showers

We staed for 3 nights at Westford House, Jo and Alan made us very welcome and we had a lovely relaxing stay. Location is ideal for main town and 2 miutes walk to both beaches. Our room was comfortable and the sitting room which was available at any time was really comfy and spacious, especially after a long day out walking. Would recommend it.

Everything was just perfect - Alan,Jo and their daughter Abbie  were excellent hosts.
Our bedroom was comfortable  and kept spotlessly clean and the breakfasts were out of this world.  Hosts are very welcoming and helpful  answering questions for planning  days out . Would not hesitate to recommend.

We have just returned from our honeymoon in the Isles of Scilly and stayed 6 nights at Westford house, It was a fantastic stay from the outset to our departure, Jo, Alan and the rest of the family host the perfect B&B , Felt totally relaxed , Our room was superb and spacious with everything we needed, we were welcome to come and go as we pleased throughout the day. The Breakfasts were yummy and relaxed creating a nice atmosphere with the other guests. Very helpful is the boatman who pops in during the breakfast period to tell of the trips of the day. Jo and Alan go out of their way to ensure your stay is perfect with everything they can do for you for example my wife is dairy, lactose & wheat intolerant it was no issue with everything there for her.. Shame they cant control the weather!! ;o)

Totally recommend and we will be back for sure!!

Thank you ;o) x
