Nothing, everything was good or better
The host, Tom who made us feel extremely welcome. He couldn't do enough to help and as a family with a small child this was excellent. The room was well appointed, clean and comfortable with everything we could have needed. Breakfast was fast and delicious, with a great selection to choose from, and the surrounding for eating were both relaxed and stylish. I would unreservedly recommend Westwood house.

The only downside is the absence of any parking...but a large midtown Car Park is just 200 yards away.
The Owner was extremely helpful with my luggage up to my 2nd floor room, and very welcoming and pleasant throughout my stay.My breakfast was delicious and exceptionally well presented.

This is s lovely guest house where the owners really care and have taken time and trouble over the rooms and the decor. A lovely experience.
15 April 2015
Only regret is that there is no lift, but it would be impossible to install one in this lovely old building.
We have stayed several times and Tom is always very friendly and helpful and Melz serves an excellent breakfast. We have tried most of the rooms, all are pleasant, comfortable and although in the centre of town surprisingly quiet.

Perhaps a continental breakfast choice might be an option, but this is really splitting hairs. There was nothing to dislike.
Spotless and everything you could want for on an overnight stay was catered for - ironing board, iron, coffee, tea and hot chocolate facilities, wifi etc... Perhaps the best B&B we have ever stayed at overnight.

Friendly helpful staff. Bookshelf.

Only downside no car park but the town car park is only 5 minutes walk away and cost only £4 for 24 hours so not really a problem
Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Rooms beautiful and clean. Breakfast sublime! Location central in town.
