Just returned from a one-night stay at The Westlakes Hotel and what a lovely stay it was! A large-ish country house type of place, we were greeted at the door by the owner and shown to our room on the third (top) floor. It was contemporary and inviting with the most fantastic view of the mountains. A double bed with a range of ikea furniture, and modern shower room - it was obviously newly refurbished.
We had a drink in the bar with the owners prior to our evening meal in the restaurant which was very good, served by a very jolly waitress!
The breakfast was a choice of cereals, toast, and a country breakfast, or selection according to preference. We had poached eggs on toast - with fantastic eggs from a local farm (we went & bought some on the way home they were that good!)
The situation of the hotel was on a fairly busy crossroads but no traffic noise could be heard with the windows closed.
The public areas did look a bit tired but the friendliness of all the staff, the fine room, good food and view to appreciate more than made up for it.
As my husband described the hotel - "the place has got soul!"
