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.

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.

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.
