    Would prefer a dishwasher to a washing machine but not an issue. Car ferry prices so high would stop us returning which we would have.

  • "Great location; close to the beach to walk the dogs."

    A lovely surprised when we opened the fridge; great welcome pack. Property was lovely and spacious, our only issue was the television; signal not great on some channels and we logged onto the wifi on first day, but had no connection the rest of the stay. Which in a way was quite nice :) Definitely recommend and return

  • "This was our 2nd stay at Westmount."

    It is nicely furnished and suits our needs with the dog. Very comfortable and enjoyable stay. TV was "iffy" even though we followed the instructions concerning only using the arrows to navigate channels. This really wasn't of great significance to us as we were either out visiting or had visitors each evening. Will definitely look to book again for our next visit.

  • "The Annex was spotlessly clean,the welcome pack was out of this world it had everything you needed."

    The bed was very comfortable had good nights sleep. It provided everything you needed like lots of tea towels and towels etc and also they left chews for the dog which was thoughtful. The reason we did not give full marks because the garden in the advert showed a very large garden which we could not use. A very small patio came with the Annex was too small for the dog to exercise (lovely sun trap). Unfortunately I had to exercise the dog first thing in the morning and last thing at night (round the block). If we had not had the dog we would have given it top marks.
