    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).

    A very clean and very warm place to stay. Lovley rooms with high ceilings and a mix of old and new. Good breakfast and the owner is very attentive to your needs. Would definately go back again

    If you need somewhere to stay in Dorchester then look no further than Westwood House: Great Breakfast, Comfy Beds, Free Wi-Fi, Very helpful owners and a house with plenty of character and charm. All for a very reasonable price. Highly recommended.

    The freedom to come and go as we please and the location suited our needs

    No designated parking. Did not object to having to pay to use public parking but the fact that we had to pay by 8am in the morning!

    We were given a warm welcome by the manager and her was exceedingly obliging. The bedrooms were newly decorated. The bed was comfortable and the bedding crisp and clean. The shower was brilliant and the breakfast was good.

    The communal areas were not of the same high standard as the bedrooms.

    No complaints- one of the best hotels that I have stayed at
