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.

Wonderful stay in one of the best guesthouses we have ever stayed in. Beautifully decorated, spacious and immaculate Georgian rooms with lovely finishing touches to give that extra special feeling. Breakfast was superb and we can highly recommend the eggs benedict! The owner was very welcoming and friendly and we would definitely stay here again without hesitation.

Anyay, Expedia arranged for him to stay at the Westwood instead, with The Bay Tree paying. He absolutely LOVED IT, couldnt say enough about how lovely it is, staff are fabulous, food great, bed delicious. Now... More

Stayed here as visiting friends nearby and what a great undiscovered hotel we found! Brilliant hosts from greeting to goodbye. Fantastic room with great additional facilities! The tea and coffee amenities were displayed very well! and a great breakfast! Would have scored 5 if the house cat was not around at breakfast time...(cat allergy)

Had a one night stay recently and found everything to be in order. Large room, very comfy bed, lovely breakfast and very good service. Not much more to be said other than thanks for a nice overnight stay.

I have been staying in the Westwood House Guest House during the week since October 2014 and anyone who knows me will tell you that my expectations the places I choose... More

I felt my stay has just been a total dream in Dorchester. Being a total foodie there was amazing English breakfast with classical music in the mornings creating a relaxing ambience, not to forget an unlimited supply of jams and mustards to taste and to accompany the morning breakfast. The hotel room i was put in was just gorgeous and... More

Was a bit disappointed after reading the reviews as I expected something amazing. The room we had was compact at the back of the house an L shape as part had been taken off for a bathroom. I know it is a Georgian house but it sounded like a heard of elephants in the room above us. how many times... More

Spent 3 Xmas nights at the Westwood and couldn't fault it! Was given a very nice large bedroom with adjoining sitting room with TVs in both rooms. Well appointed ensuite shower room with soft fluffy towels! Excellent breakfast in the morning with fresh proper coffee, just the thing to sort out the post Xmas hangover! Will be back!
