As always, we received a warm welcome. The rooms are clean and well equipped. Breakfast is really good and freshly cooked and a variety of cereals, fruit and yogurts were available. Would definitely recommend. The location is ideal for the Riviera Centre and sea.

Our 3rd visit here and can't fault anything, the prices make it very affordable but the quality is not compromised . Elegant rooms with very good quality extra touches such a welcoming beverage on arrival and excellent local produced breakfast. We hired the whole building for a fab weekend away with friends. Thank you Paul and Mike.

From the start of our 5 day visit at The Westgate to the ending we were treated like VIP guests! Our hosts made us feel welcome greeting us with coffee/tea and helping us map out the area, they took the time which means a lot to a tired traveller. Our large room gave the three of us lots of space...

The room was excellent with frequent bed linen and towel changes - Paul is a bit of an artist with towel sculptures. If you like coffee the sachets provided in the room are of very good quality....
