A GEM OF A HIDEAWAY


travelwise100224, Halifax, United Kingdom
This is a wonderful Bed and Breakfast. I have been here a number of times, because Janice, the owner is a true hostess. It is wonderfully situated on the river. It is peaceful and has lovely views from the rooms, overlooking the Northumbrian countryside. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and warm, and the place has a very welcoming feel to it. It is very quiet and a wonderful place to chill and unwind. I love it here. I have been back time and time again . It is like a home for me, and I honestly think it is one of the nicest places to stay in the area. It is great value for money- a gem of a place.

Very pleasant owner


Graham I,
Enjoyed our stay, the owner was very nice, the bedroom was very clean. not ensuite but the bathroom was next door and we did not have to share it so almost ensuite. The owner had all the local restaurants menus and had deals with two of the owners for 10% discount.

Good even when it rains


PatronEpsom_Surrey, Epsom, United Kingdom
Janice's well-equipped and welcoming guest house was a real find. Our hostess was a fount of information and also could arrange discounts at a number of places. Our ground-floor room overlooked the estuary. If bad weather drives you back to Westlea early in the afternoon, just help yourself to tea and cakes from the breakfast room. There is a huge upstairs lounge where you can read and admire Janice's collection of porcelain. Do take Janince's advice and book the local restaurants well in advance; even in mid-September they were very busy.

What a find in our hostess with the mostest..Janice


Dickodemint, Cuffley, United Kingdom
Lovely house and super rooms..most newly updated / en suite and a hostess / owner who really wants you to have a good stay. Tour first of your room with all amenities explained and additional requirements offered as required. Breakfasts are first class, with a menu so vast, I'd challenge anyone who could have the complete 'Westlea Fried Breakfast...all served by a multitude of local staff who all have a great friendly and service ethic. Can't praise enough the stay (Golf Society) our 9 / 10 members had..if you try it and you don't enjoy.. well increase your happy pill dose!!

A comfortable stay let down by breakfast


Ed E, London, United Kingdom
As most reviews have said Janice has a heart of gold and we could not have wished for a better host or welcome. We were two couples and stayed in the Chinese and Balloon rooms. Both rooms were comfortable and well equipped with en-suites, TV's and tea making facilities. In the balloon room on the ground floor the only issue was that the central heating was on so that it was too hot at night....thermostats on the radiators would be better to allow for control. For breakfast there was a good choice of both cereal and cooked (including kippers) however we felt that the service was a little chaotic and could be made much more efficient. It would be far easier for both the guests and staff if juices were available for self service. Likewise for toast it would be far simpler to provide a toaster so that guests could help themselves to hot toast. With guests helping themselves this would allow the kitchen staff to concentrate on cooking simple, fresh meals; unfortunately the cooked breakfast left a little to be desired. Pre-cooked and then trying to keep warm is never as good as being freshly prepared and served. This was a shame because Janice is a star and if breakfast had been better we would have given 5 stars. The only other comments would be that we were a little surprised to find the rooms had been made up while at breakfast and before we had checked out. One of our party wanted a quick shower after breakfast but the towels had disappeared!Lastly payment by card was not possible which was a surprise especially given the large amounts of cash required.
