    Very good

    Hotel was reasonably priced. It was truly a lovely stay. The bed was comfy, after a long drive. Location was good, just 1 km to old town. Besides, it was within 500 metres of borough gardens...

    Very good

    Greatly enjoyed the cordial atmosphere and the breakfast was delicious. The owner was FRIENDLY. The room was good sized and included coffee and tea making facilities, and fridges. Such a superior hotel - within short walking distance of everything. We ordered lunch at kao san thai restaurant, located a couple of blocks away from the venue.

    This is a hotel garni I.e bed and breakfast only but the recommendation for the Camra pub The Blue Raddle and the Thai Resturant a few doors up from the hotel were very good. The couple that own the hotel were delightful and the breakfast excellent. The facilities are very nice and the shower was excellent.

    I travelled for 7 hours arriving late. I was met by Tom and given a warm welcome. His friendly manner and efficiency immediately put me at ease and I was soon relaxing in one of their gorgeous bedrooms. Isn't it great when everything is just where it's supposed to be. Despite it's proximity to the town centre there was no issue with traffic noise and I slept really well. I was in Dorchester on business and I went into my meeting having had a beautiful breakfast, feeling fully refreshed and reinvigorated. I would thoroughly recommend Westwood House to anybody (and I don't normally do recommendations).
