My stay was alright but I was a little disappointed. The lady on reception was not happy that I had forgotten to print of my roomex voucher and bring it with me. I explained that I had been away from work all week and had no access to a printer. I had the voucher on my email on my phone and had the voucher number available to her. She asked that I forward the email to her which I did. The email did not come through immediately which I felt further aggrieved her and eventually she told me I could go to the room and she would be on reception in the morning so I could check with her if it had come through by that time. I went to the bar for some food after unpacking but it wasn't the friendliest of experiences either. I was left sitting alone for what seemed a long length of time before anybody asked if they could help, then I received a menu and my order was taken. I asked the waitress if I could move to a quieter corner which she had no problem with. My food arrived about 15 minutes later but there was no condiments (salt/pepper/sauces) offered to me and I decided it was easier to do without than ask for. The morning was a similar experience at breakfast, all the staff were polite but I wouldn't say 'friendly'! I don't think I will be staying again, while nothing was really wrong with my stay, the room was clean and warm, it wasn't the friendliest environment! As I usually travel for work/study alone it is nice to have a smiling face and a friendly word - I am afraid I felt like I was a nuisance and a bother!

Stayed here for a wedding, staff very friendly, breakfast just ok. Rashers were terrible, please change the brand. Put out sign to have room cleaned but when we arrived back late in evening room still was not cleaned. Manager called to room about half an hour after we coming back that evening & asked was the room cleaned. I explained that it was not & that I had the cleaning sign out, so he said he would get someone up to clean it, again we went out that night & when we got back late the room still had not been cleaned. Very disappointing service. Informed the reception when we were checking out she just basically said sorry, that she could see the manager had it documented. Very poor service for the price paid. We wouldn't be rushing back.

very nice hotel. comfortable rooms and extremely helpful staff
I arrived late on Wednesday evening to a very comfortable room, had no problem at check in the receptionist had everything ready, all I had to do was sign. I ate in the bar on both nights of my stay, lovely friendly staff, great food in a nice atmosphere. Loved my stay at the Westwood and will stay again next month when I am up that way!
