Hi Aura. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your time with us and enjoyed exploring The English Riviera by bus and train - its just so easy from where we are located.. If you come the direct route from the railway station by foot it's only 5 minutes... if you go the scenic route it takes a little longer. Do come to stay again and thank you for your lovely review. Paul & Mike

Just had another amazing stay at the Westgate. Been staying there now for 4 years every time we visit parents in Brixham. It is a first class b and b, with the best host you could have. Paul and Michael make you feel you are part of there family,and nothing is to much for them.

Hi Sara.. we're so pleased your group enjoyed your time staying with us. We do indeed have much bigger rooms; you took all the double rooms,but we have super king 6ft bed rooms, twin bed rooms, family room and king room- so if you fancy something bigger for the skittles championship next year do give us a call and we will match your group up to the rooms. So pleased you all enjoyed breakfast too. Thank you for your review. All best wishes Paul & Mike

Is there a pool
Hi - we are a four star guest house so there is no pool or leisure facility. You may however use the Aztec Spa which has a full range of facilities at TLH hotels opposite or the wave pool at the Riviera Centre a 3 minute walk away. There is a charge for both of these facilities.

"There is a ground floor flat"
"Room 2 very comfortable"
"The four poster bedroom is well worth it for an extra romantic touch. "
"Look at the rooms if you want a larger bed. Well worth it. "
"Room 1, is downstairs and if, like me, you have limited mobility, then it is perfect."
