WESTFIELD - The Brick House Bed & Breakfast has received Trip Advisor's coveted "Award of Excellence" for 2013, an award that is given only to the top 10 percent of worldwide listings by the world's largest travel site. The award is given when a B&B or hotel provides a consistent five-star rating, based on guest reviews. According to Trip Advisor, it has more than 1 million accommodation listings globally with 700,000 of them being hotels and bed and breakfasts.
As prestigious as it may be, this award is not new to Brick House, as it has consecutively received this annual award every year since its participation in the Trip Advisor review program. The bed and breakfast owners, Randy and Lori DeVaul, are approaching their eighth year of hosting guests to Westfield, and they have seen a marked growth in occupancy each year with both new and repeat guests.
"We are pleased and feel honored to receive this award," Randy DeVaul said. "We don't take this award lightly because we know each and every guest has a significant role in our earning and retaining this along with what our guests experience within our local area." There is no doubt as to why Brick House is ranked number one in the area by Trip Advisor and the B&B's tag line is, "Why you are here is your business; where you stay is ours."
Brick House Bed & Breakfast is a historic 1840 brick home open year-round and provides guests with a comfortable and relaxing home atmosphere. With five guest rooms, each with private bath, and located within a park-like setting, guests can "stay connected" with the free wi-fi or digital cable, or simply stay removed from it all through reading a book in the living room or from a rocker on the portico, or checking out all that Western New York offers, according to Randy DeVaul.
When asked what makes Brick House stand out, Randy DeVaul believes it is a cumulative experience. "We live in a great community with great people and we do everything we can to ensure great service and value," Randy DeVaul said. Breakfast is always fresh - no donuts or cold cereal here - and includes local, fresh ingredients. The rooms are comfortably decorated, and Brick House even participates in the LiveWell sanitizing program to keep current and future guests healthy while traveling.
Randy DeVaul says, "We are committed to giving each guest the best experience we can and we try to demonstrate that every day."
Westfield is an hour's drive west of the Buffalo-Niagara Airport and just over an hour to Niagara Falls. It is the original hometown of Welch's Grapes and is the largest Concord grape-producing region in the world.
