Myself and 3 friends had a wedding to attend in July so we booked this little B&B after reading some fantastic reviews. Upon arrival we had an extremely warm welcome, despite it being very late at night! We had the two rooms on the very top floor and they were exactly what we required. There were some really lovely homely... More

What a find the Westwod Guest House is! Lovely old Georgian building in the center of this historic town. The rooms were 'boutique' style, with all the usual tea/coffee making facilities, but with little extras e.g.toffees and sweets.The bed (king size) was extremely comfortable, and an all singing all dancing bathroom. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts, giving... More

We enjoyed the breakfast at Westwood House - freshly cooked and ample variety, so much so that it helped us ignore the underwhelming guest room and lack of lounge space of an evening. The host was very welcoming and friendly. The hostess however has a lot to learn about hospitality!!! We left with the feeling we were being dismissed from... More

Very clean and plenty of little extra touches. We were at the front of the hotel and did not have any traffic noise. Breakfast was excellent. Great value for money. I would have paid more. We will certainly stay again next time we are in Dorchester.

We had the top floor rooms looking out over the rooftops of Dorchester. Tom and Mellz were delightful hosts, providing excellent advice on where to have dinner and how to get around. Mellz fixes the best granola anywhere, which we ate every morning. This guest house is well situated to restaurants, the river, and Maiden Castle, to which we walked.... More

It has been some time that we have spent a night in a Guest house but wow did we choose the right one. The room was perfect more like a suite that a room. We enjoyed 3 good nights sleep. A little touch that we thought was fantastic, was that we had a small fridge which had FRESH milk for... More

Our two night stay was incredibly relaxing and we felt right at home as soon as we walked in. Couldn't fault anything about the service, room or breakfast. We arrived later than expected but were shown everything we needed, without feeling rushed at all. I would 100% recommend this to anyone I know and hope to come back for another... More
