I went the first time to try their steak sandwich special. It was a sad little meal so I thought I'd go try the brunch. There was no signs as to where to go and no one to direct us, When we did find it they had shut it down early.

A very good selection, but make sure to get the $7.00 discount coupon which you only get if you book directly through the hotel, not honoured through Expedia. The hot trays were kept well supplied & the eggs benny were particularly good.

I had to pop into the Best Western for an unrelated reason but in the process discovered the Westerly Restaurant. While the buffet is limited and main courses not that hot, for the money it is fine for an everyday meal. The desserts were tasty and being a buffet you can have more than one. The lady in charge was... More

The batter on the fish was literally 1cm thick all around and the fish was undercooked inside. The salad was okay.

Not impressed-service was OK but no WOW factor from the view to the wall colouring. We went in for breakfast the Buffet was boring-nothing looked fresh exciting well presented or inviting. So we took the menu. What do we get Egg Benny's -great sauce deep fried cubed potatoes two eggs on english muffins no complaint and brown very small pineapple.... More

My husband and I stayed at the Westerly for three nights, and had the breakfast buffet on our second morning. It's pretty much what you expect from a hotel breakfast buffet. The room is nice and bright, and there are real tablecloths now, instead of the 'silence pads' ones that others had mentioned. There is a wide variety of food... More

What a spread. At the end they had a Ham, Lamb, Turkey carve. Seafood selection from both Coasts, Atlantic Lobster, Pacific Crab, clams, muscle. Salmon. One of our family said his oyster was frozen. Excellent service, quick with beverages, and quick to clear. Wide assortment of desserts. Something for every diet need. We'll take the family again.

WOW - Thank you very much Ben, We served almost 500 people throughout Christmas day and my team, although exhausted at the end of it, are extremely proud of what they accomplished on Christmas day.

Our 3 time to the buffet and very disappointed. Almost all the food was gone and nothing was replenished even after asking. We must agree with another reviewer regarding the plastic table clothes, which are really silence clothes and very tacky in our opinion. It is unlikely we will return for the buffet

Dear LindaS I'm so sorry the Buffet did not meet with your expectations on this occasion, especially since the previous visits were positive. We are constantly working on improving the Buffet on the weekdays.
