We stayed for 2 nights in this delightful guest house. Melz welcomed us and showed us to our room at the front of the building overlooking the main road. I was concerned about road noise but the secondary glazing was very effective. The room was nicely decorated and furnished with a good selection of drinks and a fridge in which... More

Friendly accommodating hotel. Nice facilities. Wonderful breakfasts. We stayed here for 2 nights, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great central location, walking distance to everything. The hotel doesn't offer parking. There is a pay lot just down the street, Have change as it doesn't accept cards.

We had a wonderful stay here. Feels like being in someones (big) home, with a truly warm and unique house and room interiour. The service was excellent and we both felt welcome from the very beginning. Also, make sure you don't miss out on the breakfast as it was really good. We had Eggs Benedict and Eggs Royale, both of...

Tom and Melz made us feel very much at home here from the moment that we set foot in the house.Being animal lovers we were overjoyed with the two dogs (and the book of photos about them) and every morning, at breakfast we had the cat wandering around to see everyone and purring contentedly. Food was excellent, there is no... More

Spent 3 nights here using it as a base for exploring the nearby coast and countryside. It is well positioned in the town with local attractions and amenities within walking distance. It is on a busy high street but even though we had a front room the secondary glazing effectively blocked out the noise and the quiet modern fan provided... More

We visited the Westwood House last weekend for a flying trip to a friend's wedding. I cannot recommend enough or compliment Tom and his wife more on this great little place to stay! The rooms are a great size and extremly clean and the breakfasts are to die for. It has a great location in the High Street and nothing... More

Highly recommend this Hotel/ B&B. VERY comfortable bed, nice large king (US size), great location for accessing the Jurassic coast- just a quick 20 minute drive to get to the major landmarks. Excellent location for walking and eating downtown, very friendly service and a really good value. We stayed in room #6 and other similar places we stayed in England... More

We stayed here weekend just gone, This is a beautiful guest house. Very clean and bright. Room was spotless and the bed was amazingly comfortable. A lot of care has been put into this house. The owners are very helpful and friendly. Not to forget the delicious breakfast which was plentiful. Would definitely return,

Right on the High Street but this is a lovely tranquil place. The décor is tasteful and everything is absolutely spotless. We had a room at the back overlooking gardens so it was very quiet. The king size bed was huge and the pillows really comfy. The bathroom is large and airy with very big bouncy white towels. The toiletries... More
