It's so often the case that there are little niggles wherever you stay, but nit so with this one. If you aren't a fan of cooked breakfasts (I am by the way), then there was a good selection, the beds were comfy, the rooms were warm but not overheated, the tea and bikkies were replaced every day, and the wifi...

Stayed one night prior to leaving on ferry to the Scilly's. Excellent location on fairly quiet street. Easy walk to town center. Hosts were very welcoming and offered good advice on timing for ferry as well as local dining options. Room was clean and included all that we needed. We did not have breakfast since we needed to leave early.... More

Very warm welcome from the family. The room was spotless, very clean, new and we loved the teas that comes with the room. It was much cleaner than the 3 star hotels we've booked. I would recommend this B&B.

We totally enjoyed our stay at Westbourne B&B. The welcome, room facilities, breakfast and location were all of a high standard. The accommodation was within walking distance to the town, promenade and had good transport links.

Mike was a great host, our room was on the 1st floor and he offered to help with our cases in and out. He also gave us information about places we were visiting such as St Michaels Mount which we hadn't realised wasn't open on Saturdays! Breakfast was continental and delicious. The room had blackout blinds-perfect for me as I... More

This is our sixth time at the Westbourne Guest House having now stayed in three of their rooms. Rooms are a good size with comfy beds and good facilities. Our host Mike is friendly and knowledgeable about the area should you require any advice or assistance. Big thumbs up from us

Friendly host and good location. But not all rooms have en-suite-bathrooms even though it says so in the reservation. We got a bathroom in a hallway next to another room. It was also missing some minor details like hooks or shelves to put your clothes or towel on. So a bit awkward and inconvenient.

We felt very welcomed upon arrival. There were many little details considered, and all bases were covered--local map, hair dryer, cotton buds, variety of teas, etc-little things that add up. Great value. Only silly negatives were slightly dated interior decor and smallish shower. But would totally recommend as base for anyone coming to this area of the country.
