The beds were extremely comfortable, breakfast great and Tom couldn't have been more helpful. I can thoroughly recommend Westwood House. It is very conveniently situated as well, on the High Street and near the shops.

Not only did we sleep well but we also had an excellent breakfast. We both had salmon and scrambled egg for breakfast and it was so good we had it on the second day as well. This was despite there being an extensive breakfast menu.
The welcome we received on arrival was very friendly and tom had lots of information about the town. Being such a central location we were able to visit many of the places he suggested.
We have to return to Dorchester again soon and we know where we will stay.

Stayed for a short night. Lovely comfortable bed and linen. Quirky decor and bathroom not quite 4 star - some accessories showing signs of rust. Plenty of nice towels and tea/coffee. Warm welcome and the breakfast of very high standard . I have never seen so many (local) jams on a table of such tempting variety . Good location. Would return.

Hosts Tom sand Demelza gave us a very warm welcome. Tom helped carry our bags, the room was beautiful and the bed was the most comfortable I've ever slept in. The location is ideal and is an easy walk to shops, bars, restaurants, etc. I would say if you are going to Dorchester, then do yourself a favour and stay at Westwood House. Breakfast was wonderful!

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...
