I stayed here on 29th April, 2011 for 3 nights. It was the venue for my son’s wedding. We took over the hotel.
Let me start by saying that I am very cynical about hospitality in Britain. In my experience, you have to leave the country to experience it. In British hotels it just seems that you are just a number who pays a bill at the end of your stay.
Well, let me tell you; that is certainly not the case at Westlakes.
Our hosts, Debra and Geoff were amazing. You could not have been made to feel more welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. How nice it was to feel at home, part of the furniture.
A perfect venue for the wedding. Beautiful hotel, beautiful location and lovely marquee. How a chef prepares a meal for 120 guests amazes me. But, the Wedding Breakfast was wonderful. And, the breakfasts equally good, too.
Debra and Geoff really made sure the day went without any hitches.
I highly recommend this hotel. Whether it is a romantic break, a walking holiday – you won’t be disappointed. The hotel is beautifully decorated – it just feels right.
As I said at the beginning, I have had poor service in my lifetime. Trust me, your hosts have the right attitude. Big hotels would learn a lot about hospitality just by staying here one night. By reading this, you’ve probably realised that I a passionate person. Well you’re right, I am and I’m passionate about Debra, Geoff and Wesllakes.
Bon voyage and thankyou.
