We arrived at the Westgate for a long weekend break; on arrival we were greeted with an extremely warm welcome from Mike , the offer of a cup of tea/coffee was gratefully received and a lovely welcome gesture after a long drive.

Paul is an exceptional host; on arrival we were given boundless information on everything we needed to know about Torquay and some great tips about the local transportation buses/ferries etc.

We had a large super king double room which was very comfortable and extremely clean; the complimentary toiletries were also a nice touch. The coffee/tea facilities in the room were more than adequate and replenished everyday.

The breakfast is plentiful, with an extensive choice, (the fresh fruit was ripe and perfect) the full English was divine, good quality ingredients and cooked to perfection, Well done Paul :-)

Not forgetting a thank you to both breakfast servers Wally and Robert, service with a smile from both - a special thank you to Robert a real asset to The Westgate Robert who went above and beyond his normal every duty to make sure we were looked after.

We will without doubt return again! A* to All the Team

I have recently returned from a stay at the Westgate, it was a lovely house and the staff were so pleasant from start to finish. We stayed in the family room and the bed as divine, the room was spacious, everywhere was clean and tidy, the daily maid service was excellent and the Swan towels were an extra touch for my little one to enjoy. The guest house was very quiet which was great for getting my little one to sleep quickly. There was parking available outside the guest house. I frequented the bar and it was an extra nice touch to be able to have some peace and quiet with a drink without having to leave the house. Now the breakfast, what a choice, the breakfast was cooked to perfection particularly the eggs, the specials were a nice touch but do ask on arrival so you can pre-order. Nothing was too much trouble for Robert, he was by far the best server for breakfast, he was prompt at getting your orders, he would get the self service items for you without being asked so that you could sit and enjoy your breakfast. Overall the best guest house I have stayed in, the pictures on the website accurately reflect the house and the owners were superb! Hope to return in the future.

We had a wonderful week at Westgate. The staff were friendly, and nothing was too much trouble.
The breakfasts were really tasty (well done Paul!), and set us up for the day. A special mention to Robert who looked after us at breakfast time. He never failed to make us smile - the consummate waiter: although his weather forecasts were a little? suspect!
Excellent bus service on the doorstep.
All being well, we will be back for another visit.
Thanks again

Hi Reg. Thank you for your lovely review and we are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday with us , even if the weather was a bit unpredictable at times and did not do as it was told by our in house weather expert. We do hope to see you again and we will try to order dry sunshine for you - either way the English Riviera is still fabulous. Paul & Mike

This was our first trip to Torquay and we were pleasantly surprised with the comfort and hospitality of our hosts at the Westgate. The staff were pleasant, the breakfasts delicious and prepared fresh, with much attention giving to our needs while dining.
Near the train station, easy walking distance, on the bus route for easy access to the wharf area.
