We enjoyed our stay very much , Paul and Mike were always on hand for a chat or for travel advice . The Westgate was exquisite and breakfast was filling .Wally and Robert were very friendly waiting staff always ready for a chat ..The towel animals waiting on our beds throughout the week made us chuckle and reflected host Paul s personality perfectly .Overall a great place to call home while away .

Hi Tara. It's always good to know when guests have a lovely time with us and that you enjoyed the little extra touches and personal service that has gained us the Visit England silver award for quality. We do hope to see you again at The Westgate. Paul & Mike

Our first visit to Torquay and hopefully not the last, Tracey celebrating her 50th birthday on the 24/8/17 it was certainly helped by the owners Paul, Mike and staff at The Wesgate.
We were greeted on arrival by Paul who took the time to clue us up on all there is to know regarding Torquay and surrounding areas, including the amazing fireworks display that evening.
We had a lovely stay at the Westgate the staff were very friendly and helpful, Robert was a true gentleman and made breakfast entertaining and his service and manner were excellent, he had time for everyone.
Would we stay there again the answer would have to be yes, it's within walking distance of the sea front, is very well run, friendly and above all clean. A big thumbs up from the both of us

Dear Tracy and Steve. We are so pleased you enjoyed your special birthday with us and the wonders of Torquay - there are often little surprises laid on during the season in the English Riviera, like the August firework display you enjoyed so much. Do come and stay again - there is much more to explore in Torquay. Many thanks for your wonderful review. Paul & Mike

Having researched for accommodation in Torquay for a week's holiday i chose the Westgate and we were certainly not disappointed. We received a very warm & friendly welcome with the offer of refreshments and then Paul gave us lots of information & ideas of things to do in the area which was extremely helpful.

My family shared two rooms which were immaculate and were cleaned during the week. The added touches of biscuits/tea/coffee in our room and replenished each day was most welcome.

Now onto the breakfast - ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC. We had an option of creamy home-made porridge which was cooked to perfection and the full english breakfast was lovely. My mum who is 76 said it was the best breakfast she had ever had - which we agreed with. The service throughout and especially at breakfast was 5 star as we were looked after so well by Robert & Wally.

Overall nothing was too much trouble for Paul & Mike who made brilliant hosts and were always happy to provide any help & information with a very friendly manner.

We would certainly return again if we book in the area again . Thank you again Paul & Mike and the team for a wonderful stay.

Hi Martin. It's wonderful to know you and your family had a lovely holiday with us and that we did not disappoint. The porridge is done the traditional way with a dash of cream and a side of syrup and stirred with the right hand on the stove to bring you luck for the day. We are indeed lucky to have such great helpers at breakfast and in keeping the rooms and the public areas in great condition. We do hope to see you again if you decide on a break to The English Riviera. Paul & Mike

A remarkable stay in Torquay, which was so good I adjusted my itinerary, so I could stay an extra two days. They certainly know how to run a small hotel with great attention to detail and nothing too much trouble. The coloured encrusted ceiling in the breakfast room was beautiful and tells you a bit about the class of the owners. Paul was top chef at breakfast and Mike in charge of the breakfast room, both creating a very relaxed atmosphere. Added to an unexpected drop of real ale in a bottle. The outstanding bottle-conditioned beers for Newton Abbot's Hunters Brewery were perfect for consumption and hit the spot. Thank you for the Crispy Pig, Paul.

Room Tip: No fault(s) with anything

Hi Paul. It was great to have you stay with us and for you to stay longer than anticipated with an extra 3 days. We're so pleased you appreciated the attention to detail and the local produce we have on the breakfast menu and in the bar... we do try to support local business by buying local - and of course we get great quality and variety too. Do come and see us again. Paul & Mike
