Had a great first night until the floor started to rattle and shake due to a dance down stairs and no amount of calling the front desk got the DJ for the dance to quite down. Many complaints from all in our tour group that were located above the dance floor, noise went on until 2 am.

My wife and I checked into Westwood for a well deserved break from the kiddies. From the minute of our arrival we were smitten by the old world charm of this fantastically quaint hotel.

I stayed with my fiancee last weekend. It was a Valentine's special with dinner, prosecco and a bottle of wine. I found the room to be large which made for a comfortable stay and had a good sized bathroom. It had all things that we needed - coffee making facilities, iron & ironing board etc. The only thing was the...

The hotel itself was lovely just stayed one night. The room was a good size and very clean. The receptionist was very friendly and polite. We had dinner in the bar, the food was just ok but generally the service in the bar was very poor. This was both when they were busy and quiet. This could possibly be due...

Westwood H, General Manager at Westwood House Hotel, responded to this review

Dear Chris, Many thanks for your recent review. I was disappointed to read that you felt the bar service was poor on the night and the staff were not friendly. This is certainly not reflective of the usual standards here at the Westwood and I will definitely be following up with the team. Thank you once again for your feedback....

Stayed here in February. I booked here as I was working in the university on the saturday and based on its proximity it is one of the closest hotels. This is described as a 4 star hotel however is rather dated. The bathroom had tiles missing from the side of the bath and the shower was rather poor. There was...

Dear Gearoid, Many thanks for your recent review. I'm sorry to read that you felt we fell short in certain areas of the hotel. We would have many guests that frequent the university on a regular basis and we would always be their hotel of choice when in the area. It is disheartening to read that although you enjoyed the...

Recent short stay in this hotel. It looks older but it in fact relatively recent and the art deco features are reproduction, but consequently the rooms are large and generously proportioned compared to the usual newer hotels. Comfortable bed, quiet, nice bar with decent local food, good breakfast with hot breakfast menu and cold buffet choices. Staff attentive and charming...
