We arrived an hour before our room was due to be ready but we were made very welcome by Tom who showed us to our room. We had a superior double room which was delightful and had a little anti room with tv, sofa, little fridge with milk and bottled water and tea/coffee making facilities. The room was clean and...

We enjoyed a very comfortable stay with attention to detail from the couple whose home it is. This is as good as the best hotel with the home comfort and personal service that come from the husband and wife owners. Breakfast in the conservatory is lovely!

Plus points - lovely breakfast with loads of choice. Wonderful, comfortable large bed with very good bed linen. Good wifi connection. Coffee pod machine in room (though this needed a good clean before using) Central location so easy to walk around Dorchester. Negatives - Room 5 has very limited space in the bedroom, the adjacent 'living room' was nice but...

Slap bang in the middle of Dorchester is this lovely b&b. We had a great time exploring Dorset whilst basing ourselves at Tom's house with its comfortable and well-appointed rooms, immaculate public areas and terrific breakfasts. Highly recommended - we'll be back.

I stayed in this B&B in late Feb 2017 and it was the prefect place to stay for work. The room was more of an apartment, with a separate (small) living room, with desk, couch, TV and small fridge. The bedroom and en-suit were clean, modern and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and served in a lovely little conservatory at...

We like Georgian style accommodation and Westwood House is classic Georgian. Breakfast was excellent both days. Nothing was too much trouble for the hosts. Bed very comfortable and we slept very well. Location great with many local restaurants, pubs and local attractions within walking distance.

From the warm welcome on arrival to the superb conservatory breakfast (with the biggest collection of jams and marmalades I've ever seen), staying here was a delight. Rooms were spacious, a bit querky and with character. It's on a main road so some may be disturbed by traffic if in the rooms on that side (I was there and wasn't...

Well located near to the main central areas of Dorchester. Our room on the first floor at the back of the property was very comfortable and well furnished. Cosy and extremely clean with lovely cotton bedding and a huge (and very comfortable) bed. Breakfast in the conservatory is a treat, relaxed and peaceful, the choice and quality of food was...

My boyfriend and I stayed here while visiting his family in Dorchester just before Christmas. I can't say enough nice things about this place. We sung it's praises to his family so much while we were there I think they were starting to get annoyed! After arriving, the owner greeted us and showed us to our room. He was lovely...
