What a fantastic stay I had at Westwood House for a recent business trip. Tom could not have been more friendly when I arrived and he recommended a fantastic restaurant for dinner that evening. My bedroom was very spacious and decorated to a very high standard. The icing on the cake for the stay was breakfast which was superb, I... More

I was greeted with an exceptionally warm and friendly welcome at this pleasant town centre guest house. The large bedroom was very comfortable and the freshly cooked breakfast first rate. It’s worth noting the parking information provided on the website. Don’t just turn up and hope for a convenient parking space; there wasn’t one when I arrived on a mid-week... More

just an overnight stay for work, but the team went out of their way to help me. friendly without being over the top; professional, helpful and good quality rooms and breakfast. right in the centre of town too. more like a good hotel than a Guest House (and i mean that as a compliment). would thoroughly recommend.

better welcome and care tun normal. Clean spacious room with comfortable bed. Fresh milk in fridge. Varied freshly cooked breakfasts were delicious and included very fruity jams and honey sourced locally. Television and wi-Fi satisfactory. Plenty of space for storage of clothes and belongings. Well equipped bathroom with good shower and bath.

I stayed here a couple of days ago with my daughter and we were given the family suite. Effectively this is the top floor of the property and is made up of a room with a double bed, another room with twin beds (there's an interconnecting door between the two rooms) and a separate bathroom. Within the room there are... More

I have stayed at Westwood House a couple of times now as my grandparents live just around the corner. Tom and Melz welcome you in to their home and treat you like family. The rooms are always spotless and well equipped with tv, fridge, iron, tea & coffee making and a big bathroom. The breakfast is fit for a king... More

Stayed here at the last minute for a business trip and initially wasn't impressed due to having no onsite parking, however, there is a very cheap Pay and display only a few minutes away. Once I'd got past that frustration and check in, the hotel couldn't have been better. Very friendly welcome by Melz, shown directly to my room and... More

Just the one night stopover on business. Located centrally and handy for anywhere central in Dorchester. Travelling by car, I was a little reluctant about my choice of Westwood House but arriving after 6pm I was able to park across the road for free until 8am - and even then the parking is not extortionate or designed to put you...

We stayed in the family room back in April, our children are 7 and 5 and we booked one night as we were attending a wedding on the Saturday and a family lunch in Weymouth on the Sunday. We usually stay in hotels and hadn't stayed in a B&B for sometime. Westwood House is a beautifully decorated house and the... More
