“Comfortable Guest House”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

The Westwood has boutique style and quality rooms.
Each has a different style and ours, although at the front of the property, was both quiet and comfortable.
The property is, like much of Lyme Regis, ‘up a hill’ which makes walking down to the front easy and good exercise on the way back.
The Westwood’s owner, Lavinia is helpful, interesting and a great host.
I doubt this is a place for children (think there is an age limit of 12+) but it does attract a wide range of guests and is suitable for all.
The breakfasts, taken in a fantastic conservatory, are excellent with a tremendous choice of good food.
Drawbacks? I guess parking is the one concern. There is a two bay car park on one side of the property and 4/5 on the other but these are on something of a slope and do result in all but 2 cars being boxed in. Lavinia seems more than capable of moving guest’s cars around if you can bear to let someone else drive your pride and joy.
Overall, highly recommended

I never usually write reviews but I have to make an exception here.

We stayed with Lavinia while we were in Lyme Regis for a friends' wedding. We had a fantastic weekend and would like to thank Lavinia for all her help! She certainly made the weekend easier by being flexible with when we arrived, left (sorry Lavinia!), ate, got up, went to bed etc. We felt really really welcome at all times. The room and house was beautiful. The bed was huge and very comfy. We had a terrace where we could have coffee in the morning and take in the view from the top of town. The bathroom was massive - a huge walk in shower. The breakfast was always delicious and there was a lot of it. Chef was flexible when I was picky with my orders! Lavinia was quick to suggest good places to eat and drink and how to get around the town. She will even move your car for you if you're a bit groggy in the morning!

I would not hesitate to recommend Westwood to anybody looking for a stay in Lyme Regis. I cannot find a fault with it.

Thanks Lavinia - hopefully see you soon

Tim and Laura

Room Tip: Go for one of the rooms with a terrace if you can!

enjoyed our stay in Lyme Regis and our time in the Westwood. Room was beautifully decorated but we found the curtains high to reach. There was not a lot of storage space for clothes in the wardrobe. However we loved the fresh milk in the Fridge which took up some of the space in the wardrobe. Personally I felt that towels should be changed more often without having to ask for this at breakfast time. Speaking of breakfast, it was excellent and served in a lovely room which made the most of the views. All in all an enjoyable experience.

I have just 2 days at Westwood and Lyme Regis. Lovely views of Golden Cap and Portland from the Guest House.This is a wonderful location if you want to explore Lyme Regis town and its lovely restaurants. Great for walking either to WestBay or Seaton. Sitting outside of my room having breakfast on the terrace is lovely especially as the breakfast was supurb quality.
Lavinia does a great job and keeps the house beautiful. I will be back as soon as I can have more time away.

We have stayed at Westwood House for several years now and have always had a fantastic stay. The rooms are fabulously luxurious and Lavinia is the best hostess ever. Always very welcoming and friendly. The breakfasts are delicious and there is a wonderful choice. Westwood Guest House definitely ticks all the boxes.

Room Tip: I would definitely recommend the ground floor rooms with the adjoining balconies overlooking the gar...

Stayed in the guest house this weekend (end of May bank holiday) as our friends were getting married in Lyme Regis. Lavinia was very welcoming despite us arriving a few hours later than expected. Rooms were very comfortable and clean. Amazing cooked breakfast that my wife & I had on our balcony as the sun was shining. Great views and a short work to the centre of town. Overall, great value for money and worth paying a bit extra.

As we first entered the house we were immediately struck by the warmth of welcome and the kindness and attention given by the owner. The whole house is delightfully decorated and impeccably clean. There was an atmosphere of luxury without it being overpowering. The food was simply superb and in every little detail this was a real treat.
