I stayed at the Westwood House Guest House on the 17th February and had a really nice evening. The bedroom was superb and they even had little touches like fresh milk in the mini fridge. The breakfast in the morning was one of the best I have had in a hotel.
Thank you for a very good stay

We stayed one night to attend a wine tasting event in Dorchester. Even though it was a short stay, we quickly relaxed and received helpful advice from the owner about places to eat. The room was furnished with quality products and the breakfast was excellent. Overall, it was extremely good value and an ideal place for a longer stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in No 6 Abbotsbury which, although facing the main street, was surprisingly quiet. For ver...

We have just spent two nights at Westwood House and it was fantastic. Our room was spacious, beautifully decorated clean and warm with free wi-fi and quality furnishings. The bed was huge and so so comfortable. Even the complimentary toiletries were top quality! There was plenty of choice for breakfast with everything cooked to order and simply delicious. The location could not have been more central, with several restaurant right on your doorstep. Parking although approx 200 meters away only cost £4 for the weekend!!! The owner were really friendly and welcoming. We would not hesitate to recommend this guest house.

Room Tip: We had a room number at the back and not on the main road which was quiet.

High quality guest house in the centre of Dorchester. Comfortable rooms and breakfast at a high standard. Very attentive service a must visit when staying in the area. One down side is the lack of parking but the local car park is reasonably priced.

So glad we decided to stay here! We are attending a wedding in Dorchester so its central location was ideal. The comfort of the bedroom, WIFI, the quality of the locally sourced, well cooked breakfast and friendliness of the owners made for an excellent stay.

Very friendly service in this high quality B&B that would put many a 4/5 star hotel to shame. Rooms are lovely, large, well appointed and decorated. Breakfast is glorious and service is impeccable. Location is central to Dorchester. Even better the price is competitive and the discount for single occupation makes it a virtual no brainer. The only problem is getting a booking.

Room Tip: If possible ask for one of the rooms at the back to avoid noise from the street.
