“Tremendous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

Having read other reviews of this guest house I wondered if it would be as good as they said. Believe you me, all the good things that have been said are true!. From our arrival to our departure we were looked after in the grandest manner. Rooms, very clean & modernised with taste. All the little items you wish were there, were. Breakfasts were a treat, good choice & good quality food made you ready for the day ahead. Owners were very friendly & were there to help in any way they could. As a party of 4 we stayed for 3 nights & it was a pure delight to stay there, thanks.

Room Tip: No problems with our rooms, both on first floor, a little noise early morning in room on main street...

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.
