Room was very spacious and a seperate sitting area with tea & coffee making facilities and TV. Bed was very comfy with Egyptian cotton covers. Bathroom was also very spacious with a large...

A lovely place to stay with lovely proprietors. The hotel is on the main road and we were worried about parking but Dorchester has free parking on Sundays. Our room was simply wonderful and massive offering a separate bathroom with a great shower. Great touches included a mini fridge with fresh milk for tea and coffee (from a Krupps machine)...

Stayed here 1 night on business and would definitely stay here again. Large comfortable bed. Excellent pillows, egyptian cotton and really nice touches in every area. The only down side is parking, but that isn't the fault of the hotel. Besides there is plenty parking at reasonable prices all within a short walk. To put in context I stayed in...

Westwood epitomises English hospitality. A Georgian beauty on Dorchesters main road! Warm greeting from Tom, and our room was modern, spacious, light and quiet. The bathroom was the same. And complimentary shortbread, yum! Westwood deserves all its awards displayed on the website, with the breakfast being the stand out. English tucker at its best, with Tom again recommending and serving...

The room was large with great facilities including a fridge with fresh milk, water and homemade shortbread. Large ensuite and bed...unfortunately because the headboard is bolted to the wall a bit...

Very good. Nice host, very comfortable bed, and excellent English breakfast, all served by host/owner. Tiny little quibble the black pudding wasn't brilliant, but everything else was very good. Overall good value in a townhouse b@b very close to all Dorchester sites.

Everything was outstanding! This fabulous guesthouse is located in a listed Georgian building and on Dorchester’s main street. The West Wood House is by far the best place we ever stayed. You can’t fault it! It’s a 10/10 for us. Location is ideal, the building stunning, the decoration refined yet homely, the owners can’t be any more charming, our room...

I stayed here with my partner and our daughter last weekend. I read lots of positive reviews ahead of time and they were all absolutely true. Lovely guest house, great breakfast, superb ambiance and the hosts couldn't have done more. Thoroughly recommended.

I had the pleasure of spending 4 nights at the Westwood Guest House recently and wanted to share my experience. Upon arrival I was warmly greeted by one of the owners Tom and shown to my room. I was lucky to get the top floor to myself so had plenty of room to spread out over the 2 rooms and...

Staying at the Westwood House guest house was a fantastic experience. I am a butler in a 5 star hotel in London myself and trying to achieve excellence on a daily basis. Therefore it wasn't difficult to notice that it came naturally to our hosts. They were very friendly, welcoming and extremely professional. One of the most important things to...
