“Small but very friendly.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2012

This was a stopover to and from Scotland for a family funeral. It was just what was needed - very cosy, warm and friendly. The owners were actually on holiday and friends were baby sitting the hotel for them. They were very welcoming and were doing a grand job. Our first room and en suite were a little small but for one night this was not a problem - it was lovely. The room for our second stopover was a large double with en suite at the front of the hotel. Short walk to the town with it's abundance of restaurants. Would certainly stay there again. In fact my husband thinks he and his brother stayed there many,many years ago whilst on a walking trip!

Room Tip: Ask for a large double when booking.

We stayed here during the half-term break and had the large double with en-suite at the front (room 3) . The hotel is in a great location for walking to countless restaurants and the town whilst away from the traffic and very quite. We did not use the car once. Lovely hosts with helpful suggestions for places to go, how to get there and even offered the loan of maps and timetables. The room was was lovely, clean, quiet and very warm. Whilst the en-suite was on the small size, the shower was good, the fittings were clean and you have to respect that it is not easy to find space for an en-suite without ruining the room. (depends what you want to do in the en-suite!) Good breakfast - kept us going all day. Nice to have the option of an honesty bar if you did not go out. Will definitely go back again sometime.

we booked this b @ b on a late deal and stayed on the 7th november. The room was a large double en-suite at the front of the residence and was a lovely room. However the ensuite was very, very small and you could not move in it very comfortably I have never been in an ensuite so small, when you opened the door to the ensuite the sink was directly facing you, so if you closed it behind you there was hardly any room and my husband and I did have a giggle about it. However dispite this we had a lovely stay and would return but ask for a different room with a bigger ensuite next time.

We stayed here on the 30th October for 1 nights stay...Very good location, lovely, clean guest house welcoming hosts and lovely breakfast. We stayed in the compact double ensuite which was large enough and definitely good value for money. WIll definitely return.....

We had a lovely two night stay at The Westbourne. The location was great, off the main street so nice and quiet, but a short stroll from the lake past all the shops and restaurants. The room was very comfortable with good amenities and a wide range of hot drinks on offer. The lounge and conservatory downstairs were lovely and cosy, great to relax in and read a book.

Breakfast was very tasty, with a good selection of hot and cold items. The town had some great restaurants. We ate in The Angel and Jacksons Bistro, both were good and reasonably priced.
