I have just come back from a week in Dorchester, staying at the Westwood House, and I am going back tomorrow for another week - and I am very happy to be doing so. Nothing was too much trouble, the room was pretty (but not icky), the dining room and sitting room spacious, breakfast was generous and delicious, and there... More

This is a lovely old building in the main street in Dorchester. There is no parking at the Guest House, but there is inexpensive Pay & Display nearby. The family room that we stayed in, on the top floor, was perfect for us, as it had two rooms, with an adjoining door. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was... More

Absolutely fantastic guest house. We arrived incredible late and all flustered and bothered from a very long drive woke up the poor owners who were very polite and helpful with parking. We were so embrassing but exhausted from our journey and when we were shown to our room it was stunning. Well decorated and looked after. Amazing bathroom and facilities.... More

Lovely rooms, an excellent breakfast and the staff were brilliant, stayed for two night over the bank holiday in May, decor of the rooms were spacious and with some nice touches here and there. Breakfast was great the jam selection was especially great.

We stayed at Westwood House for three nights and enjoyed our stay thoroughly. We were given a big and beautiful room on the second floor and slept very well all three nights in our big comfortable bed. The room came with tea/coffee making facilities, mini fridge, good shower pressure, hair dryer, tv, free wifi, nice toiletries and little things that... More

I am away on business a lot. This is one of the nicest places I have ever stayed in. Fresh milk in a FRIDGE (a luxury these days!). Huge comfortable bed; beautifully clean bathroom and breakfast to give you a fab start to the day. They must have over 20 different jams and marmalades to choose from. The cooked breakfast... More

Excellent place to stay. Rooms are spacious and clean looked newly decorated. Very powerful shower and handy supply of extras you may have forgotten e.g. Sewing kit. Hotel owners and staff lovely people very helpful and great service. A great value for money with a lovely breakfast provided. Me and my husband would definitely stay here again

My daughter and myself have recently returned from an overnight stay at Westwood House. On our arrival the proprietor had arranged for us to occupy the top floor which enabled us to have 2 double bedrooms (one containing a double and the other 2 single beds). We were very surprised and grateful as we had only expected a double room.... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night and wished we could have stayed longer. The room was immaculate, lots of lovely little touches were included like fresh milk in the fridge and a little box of items like needle and thread, etc; small things, but it makes the visit seem more personal. Breakfast was wonderful and great to... More

We spent one night here on 21/3/15 with a friend. We booked 2 rooms. Both rooms were large and beautifully decorated and furnished with everything you could possibly need. The beds were VERY comfortable. Breakfast was sumptuous. Owner very friendly & helpful. Don't bother looking anywhere else, just book in here. Will definitely go again.
