This doesn't look special from the street but once through the door you enter a clean and quiet 6 room hotel. It has been completely refurbished and is in excellent condition. The choices for breakfast stretched from muesli and yoghurt to full English or eggs Benidict. The owners were cheerful and helpful. I would definitely return here next time

Stayed here with 3 friends as we were at a wedding in the area. We didn't arrive until midnight due to traffic but this wasn't a problem and we were helped in with our bags as we were on the top floor. The rooms were very nice with lots of nice little touches. The breakfast was really nice with lots... More

Tom have is a very friendly welcome and was very helpful with regard to finding a nice restaurant. The family room was lovely and basically two rooms joined by a connecting door and a shared bathroom. The decorations were tasteful and there were some thoughtful touches. We had a fridge with fresh milk provided and plenty of tea and coffee.... More

Travelling on business with hotel arrangements made for me by our corporate travel partners on a tight budget. Most of the places I end up in are 'satisfactory', but nothing to write home about. This time? An unexpected gem! Great greeting from Tom, impressive and comfortable room, plus the lovely town of Dorchester on the doorstep. This morning, a wonderful... More

Having never been to this part of England, we didn't know what to expect. However, our host made us very welcome. Although the rooms are upstairs, they are quite spacious, with comfy chairs to sit and read. The bed is very comfortable and the linen is superb. Breakfast in the conservatory was the best we have had for a long... More

We were greeted exuberantly by Tom after a long day and shown to our large comfortable room (#6 Abbotsbury). Very welcoming! The king ensuite had large windows facing out onto the main street, a couch, and a roomy bathroom with shower and bath. The "hospitality cat" was a welcome homey touch at breakfast. In addition to the traditional English breakfast,... More

An excellent place to stay. Great food, fantastic breakfast and lovely hosts. The room was very nice, finished to a very high standard and spacious. The inclusion of a smaller sitting room was an added extra and was also very enjoyable. Added extras like the sweets in the room, beautiful communal sitting room and friendly old cat just added to...

This is located right in the heart of Dorchester, so it's perfect for exploring. You can come and go during the day as you please, and our room at the back (no. 1) was practically silent, even though the guest house is right on High West Street. The breakfast, in the conservatory, was delicious - with the finest range of... More

The Westwood Guest house was perfect. The breakfast was delicious, the rooms under the eaves were cosy, the beds were extremely comfortable, the location was central and very convenient, the owners were very welcoming, and the cat was very friendly too!
