We stayed at the West Bay again on the 31st December and 1st January. On arrival we were warmly welcomed back by Sam, the landlord. This time we had room 4 at the back, it's really nice and all of the rooms have been recently renovated, painted and new carpets and soft furnishings, they look really nice and comfortable. Our...

Attended a "works" Christmas party and received a warm welcome. Staff were friendly and efficient. Pre-ordered Christmas menu was pretty good overall. The scallop starter was delicious, as was the duck main. The vegetables were a let down; a mixture of Mediterranean and traditional, but all thrown in large serving bowls together (potatoes included) and were a bit soggy and...

Only to find there was NO Christmas cheer or menu!!, Unless you have anything from the "specials" board there are no lunchtime starters! Which consisted of whitebait, mussels or scallops.... Unless you wanted anything off the...

Lovely lunch on a cold day - friendly staff & a great meal. Kids catered for too. Reasonably priced with choices for young ones. Kids enjoyed the Christmas tree with the snow. Just over the road from the cliffs at west bay

A quiet lunchtime drink with my husband. Walking in to the bar, it was obvious the 'night before' had been busy so elements of 'still clearing up' was evident! Pretty Poor practice! We went to the bar and the person behind the bar automatically looked at my husband and asked what he wanted.....on returning with his pint he then asked...

Booked for just a night to attend family celebration meal. Room was large, comfortable, and clean. The meal was very good only criticism was that with our party of 12 some people were served their main course and had to wait for vegetables. Breakfast had a good selection of cereal and cooked food. Staff very attentive and friendly.

Had a family meal here with my two young kids. It was quiet but even so we were not made to feel overly welcome and the whole service seemed to be a bit of a chore for them. Food was ok but relatively expensive and overall the place looks like it could do with a good clean!

I cannot speak highly enough about this atmospheric 18th century hotel. The room was very large with an exceptionally comfortable bed. The large en-suite shower room had all you could need. We ate there on our first night and food was terrific. The whitebait starter had larger than average whitebait and the thyme-infused chicken entailed an amazingly large, and very...
