We stayed here for 3 nights over a weekend and overall, found this experience very positive.

We were very lucky with the weather, we had brilliant sunshine but other parts of Devon and Somerset suffered downpours - after all it was Glastonbury weekend.

We thought the apartment was very spacious - very clean. The kitchen was well equipped and the lounge and dining area fairly comfortable for a couple, maybe for four adults, it would have been a bit tight. We could just about see the sea from the balcony because we were on a lower floor and near the top end of the row of apartments but this did not put us off. The late afternoon sun shone on our balcony where we relaxed with our glasses of wine after a day sightseeing.

The housekeeping staff - particularly Gwen and her husband were very welcoming and helpful, printing out maps for walks and recommending restaurants.

Our only niggles which can be viewed as constructive comments were that the bath had no handrail or slip mat making it very unsafe to stand in the shower, only one bedside table and light, the bed itself was very low to the ground and uncomfortable. It would have been nice to have a tv in the bedroom as most hotels do.

We found the path down to the sea front quite steep and uneven to walk along, it could be dangerous in the dark. Maybe the Management can persuade the Town Council or whoever to repair this path which probably got damaged during storms earlier this year.

When the building works are finally completed with restaurants, bars, swimming pool and gym etc., it would be nice to return to see the finished resort complex.

I know this was a self catering apartment but would have appreciated fresh towels and the bin emptied daily.

We booked a last minute short break at Westbeach Resort and are so very glad we did.

Westbeach is up and coming with a great Housekeeping Team. Gwen and Peter were friendly and welcoming - they really want you to enjoy your stay!

The apartments are modern, comfortable and clean, with a great kitchen, lovely bathroom,
and everything you need for an enjoyable visit.

Westbeach's location is only 50 yards from the Westward Ho! promenade.
There are wonderful coastal walks, rock pools, beach combing galore - we saw several
people with metal detectors hunting for 'treasure'.

We loved the village atmosphere in 'The Ho!' and there are some great places to eat -
we didn't have enough time to try them all unfortunately.

We're looking forward to returning to Westbeach and 'the Ho!' for a longer stay next summer.

The apartment was smart, spacious, and comfortable and was suitably equipped to meet our every need. Proximity to the beach, a definite plus. Sitting on the balcony, watching the sunset, kids in bed, glass of Pinot in hand - bliss!

We are currently staying at the Westbeach self catering apartments. We are in a 2 bed unit. Not terribly impressed so far. Surrounded by high fences, building work, and a view of rather grotty holiday bungalows. Space and seating very limited for four adults. Limited hot water only enough for two short showers, no good for four. Clean and good TV and WiFi. Would be alright for a couple who like to be out all day and just come back to sleep. We have it through dial an exchange. Would be very disappointed if we had rented it.

The apartment is well fitted with all conveniences except a washing machine,which would be useful for longer stays, and very clean. The reset is obviously growing and has a ride range of restaurants to choose from. The main attraction of the resort is the location with a great surf beach, rock pools and access to the Devon coast.

Although it was a little hard to find the apartments, we were pleased with it. There is building work going on but it didn't bother us and it was cordoned off. The couple who are the house keepers were welcoming and friendly.

The facilities are modern and the apartment block is set back from the seafront which shields it from the wind. It is close to many restaurants and other amenities.

We enjoyed are stay.
