lovely time spent down in West Bay... The hotel is small, quiet, friendly, has a lovely atmosphere... It's not overly smart, but if you want to get dressed for supper then you'd not feel totally out of place, but if you forgot your shirt and shoes it wouldn't matter either.
The staff were friendly and helpful and when our mixed up supper reservation became apparent it wasn't a big deal and was sorted out immediately.
We had a double room and a twin room (which was actually the family room) for our two girls - just across the corridor... clean, comfy, spacious, quiet - it felt safe and accessible. Both rooms had ensuites - (ours didn't have a bath despite the cavernous size of the bathroom! - but I just used my daughters bath instead while they watched Britains Got Talent).
Breakfast in the morning was great - the usual stuff you can order and a really nice waitress who didn't mind constantly refilling my coffee mug and didn't mind that it took our youngest daughter a long time to choose her breakfast.
It was a lovely relaxed 24hours and if you're not looking for a fast, noisy, clubbing type of break and prefer long walks on endless beaches with amazing cliffs, knowing you've got a delicious (locally caught) fish-supper waiting for you at the end of it, then this is the place to go!
