Our hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. They made me feel quite at home. The rooms were lovely and really tidy. Breakfast was generous and tasted excellent. Should I ever have the chance to go back to that part of England I will definitely stay at The Westgate again.

Family Atmosphere, i felt very welcome. When I come back to Torquay i will definitly choose The Westgate again. It is run by a very nice management stuff. We could every morning decide what kind of breakfast we liked to have Continental or British Breakfast. Also a mangnificient fruit salad. Excellent place for a short or a langer stay.

Only downside was the number of stairs to get to our room. Especially the last flight as was very steep. Not a good room if you are not very mobile. Also the shower cubicle was very small so if you are on the larger side it would be tight.

Dear Chris. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and found us to be in great location for the harbour and Torre Abbey Sands. We are a Victorian villa and part of the house's elegance are the high ornate ceilings in the principal rooms... but this does mean there are a few more steps in the stair...

We had a brilliant two night stay in the four poster room. It was fantastic. The hosts were thoughtful, informative and provide a first class service. The breakfast was delicious, the specially made Belgian waffle for my son was very much appreciated. I would highly recommend this fabulous establishment to anybody visiting Torquay. Keep up the good work gents. Thanks...

We stayed at the Westgate whilst attending a small business conference at the Riviera Centre. Our reasons for booking included proximity to the Conference centre (a few minutes walk), the price which was very reasonable, and the fact that like us the owners have a small business which are the life blood of our economy. The booking process was easy...

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.
