We stayed here over night in January for our 7th wedding Anniversary, we had a lovely room downstairs with a huge comfy bed, also a lovely bathroom with two sinks , The Owners made us feel most welcome and the cooked breakfast in the morning was Lush. We will definitely be returning.

Very nice location and for the short time we were there we found it very enjoyable. The breakfast was amazing, and it was only overshadowed by the stunningly comfortable bed! A defo for any short stay in Dorch!

We stayed a couple nights in January to visit our son who is the brewer at the local brewhouse and restaurant. What sold me in the internet what the fact they had king beds but the bonus was the great breakfast. You must do their eggs Benedict. Closest I have had to anything made in New Orleans! The rooms were... More

This was a serendipitous find, and absolutely brilliant. The room was very well appointed, unusually large for a B&B, great bath/shower, and well insulated from outside sound. The hosts were absolutely charming, and breakfast was just totally outstanding. It's an excellent location in the centre of town with several great pubs and restaurants within 150 yards. Wifi is free, high... More

Lovely warm welcome - we enjoyed or stay in the Basement room - very spacious with door to a tiny courtyard - opening window and adjustable heating (so rare these days) and a really comfortable super king bed meant we had a great night's sleep. Nice thoughtful little touches in the room. Breakfast was pleasant - music very loud but... More

Stayed here whilst visiting friends and family over Christmas. Lovely atmosphere, comfortable rooms, quality breakfast - what more can you ask for? Price is slightly high but you in the centre of Dorchester.

Westwood House is well refurbished Georgian House in the centre of Dorchester. We had the Abbotsbury room on the first floor overlooking High West Street. Great bed, good towels, sofa and plenty of room. Wide choice for breakfast in a comfortable conservatory. Helpful hosts

Stayed here for a couple of days in December. I must say that the room was lovely, with a big king size bed, modern decor and 100% Egyptian Cotten bedding! The breakfast was excellent, with a wide selection from continental, full English, smoked salmon and haddock. Tom and Demelza were extremely welcoming and excellent cooks. Would definitely recommend.

Wonderfully appointed comfortable room, great facilities in the room (everything from travel adapters to irons), attentive hosts and fabulous cooked breakfast in the morning. I have marked this as a budget hotel simply on price, it certainly doesn't feel like it. There is very little to fault. The only issue people would have to be aware of is that there... More

Great central location, convenient for shops and restaurants. Excellent comfy beds and a great award- winning breakfast. What more could you ask for! Much cheaper than most of the local hotels too. Parking can be an issue at peak-times (as with other town centre locations) but street parking is available at reasonable prices during the day and free from 6pm... More
