We stayed for 2 nights in November 2015. We chose not to upgrade to larger room so we expected the room to be small which it was but it had great windows to the side and front and a small adequate bathroom/shower. The décor was lovely , the room was clean and it had a comfy bed so we were... More

Fantastic hotel, friendly staff, will definetly stay again! We stayed in The Cottage suite which was amazing, our own little paradise. Underfloor heating, 2 tv's, jacuzzi bath and king size bed! Location was great, up a hill away from the main road but 2 minute walk down to town centre. Lots of lovely little shops and restaurants if you want... More

Fantastic B&B in a great location. Free parking. Charming building and lovely rooms, each with an individual feel. Full English Breakfast is superb with quality ingredients. The owners are thoroughly professional and at the same time offer genuine care and attentiveness to customers. Nothing is too much trouble and all is done with a warm smile. I can't fault anything...

The couple who own the Westbourne and friendly and the rooms are beautifully clean. The beds and linen are really comfortable. Only a short walk from the lake parking is available at the rear. The breakfast was served with a smile, was delicious and was beautifully presented. Every care is taken to ensure your stay is easy going and pleasant.

Great B&B, beautiful area only minutes away from the main streets, friendly staff, good breakfast. Comfortable room, clean and tidy. Beautifully decorated. If I have to suggest any improvements they could make it would be to upgrade the shower but I'm being picky! Highly recommended, we would return.
