I'll keep this short-ish as I don't enjoy writing negative reviews, although this is my first for a hotel.
The Westcliff looks lovely from the outside - old yet clean & grande. The lobby's the same. But the room, ohhhhh the room! Dark & dingy with poor lighting. It left little to be desired, and had a terrible smell which lingered the whole time we were there - just the one night thankfully.
After breakfast - which was delicious by the way - I called reception & asked for an extra 45 mins before check out, which was granted. Only to be called several minutes later and told that we must leave the room.
So we did.
