Only stayed here for a night. Comfy bed, nice room, very good welcome, good location and great breakfast. Would stay here again. Parking was fine. Top of the town car park just a couple of minutes stroll.

We spent a lovely weekend at this guesthouse, nicely decorated, spacious room, nice bathroom, excellent hosts, superb breakfast, and we loved the hospitality cat. Close to great local restaurants recommended by the guesthouse.

This is a beautifully maintained house in the very centre of Dorchester. Our room was in excellent condition, and the reception we received was very friendly. What's more, we enjoyed a first-rate breakfast. The only negative point that I might mention is parking. As noted above, the house is in the very heart of Dorchester, so you can expect charges...

My husband and I stayed at Westwood House for three nights in room 5. The room had a separate sitting room with a television and a fridge which had fresh milk and water ( would have liked a glass to drink the water out of) which was a nice touch. The bedroom also had a television and good quality bedding... More

Friendly hosts. Very comfortable family rooms at the top floor, suitable for 4 persons. The breakfast there is delicious and offers something for every taste. The pancakes impressed our teenager who commented it as "An improvement of the American's". We would love to stay here again.

We stayed for one night. Our room was downstairs, it was clean and spacious with a large bathroom. It had a small table and two chairs just outside the patio doors with candles on which was a lovely touch! The breakfast was amazing!

I was here for one night, and can recommend it. I had the first floor room you can see in the photo. It was very large, the bed was very comfortable, the breakfast was great., the owners were very helpful.

Good value for money in garden floor room with great breakfast. Near to everything Dorchester has to offer and no distance from the cheap car park. The host was very welcoming and attentive. Our room was a garden room - although downstairs it had plenty of light and was spacious with a comfortable bed. The house was typical of Georgian... More

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
