    A comfortable stay next to the forest

    I really enjoyed the feeling of being in the forest with the views from the terrasse and the room. The stay was comfortable but the kitchen was too slow, it took us a long time to get food when we ordered some.

    A tranquil surprise in the middle of a city

    Westwood is a gem in the middle of a city. Its quiet, tranquil, nestled in the forest with a small stream. Everything went smooth with our stay, the staff were super friendly. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

  • 2.0.Poor

    The conference I was supposed to attend at West Wood was moved to a different hotel just 48 hours before the conference was to begin. I had no idea it was a result of the hotel overbooking. So, I arrived expecting a 5 night stay and was told that I only had a room for 2 nights due to overbooking. It was around midnight and there wasn't much I could do. I told the person at the front desk I would find another hotel for my stay and would just sleep over that night. An Expedia rep was nice, but couldn't do anything for me that evening. I called around on my own and found a place to stay where my conference had been relocated. In the morning, I tried to check out and the manager told me I could not check out. She didn't tell me my driver had arrived to transport me to a new hotel. She proceeded to tell me that I was comfortable at the hotel and should just stay while she sorted out the rooms and relocated someone else. I told her it wasn't necessary and we began a back and forth about where I should stay. She refused to give me a refund, saying that I was being accommodated so could no longer relocate to another hotel. Once I found out my driver came to take me to a new hotel, I left and had repeated phone communication with West Wood and Expedia to get a refund issued.

    Easy access to various locations for meetings. Quiet and peaceful. Good wifi and friendly staff. Facilities are limited (no gym, no business centre, only one restaurant/bar) but this is a small hotel so it's not unreasonable. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Great to find USB plug points next to the bedside table. Large walk in shower in my room but the hot water takes a few minutes to reach the room. Linen is clean but some of the towels were a bit threadbare. But I would stay here again as it served my needs.
