  • "We had a wonderful week in the apartment and we couldn’t believe how close we were to the beach and what fantastic views."

    Lovely walks along the seafront to Weymouth and the harbour. It might be useful to others to point out that the parking on the drive from the main road can be awkward. We used the garage once but found it narrow for our Clio so doubt whether a bigger car could get in. As mentioned in other peoples feedback the double bed mattress is uncomfortable and needs to be replaced with a better quality one. Apart from that we had a great time and would recommend.

  • "We really enjoyed staying there."

    Superb view of the sea. All facilities are enough and thoughtful. Only one thing I would like to reach the owner that main bath room toilet seat is wobbly. Master bed mattress seems same as soft I read reviews though. Super flat we would like to be back again.

  • "Just a few minor points there was no toilet paper."

    Had to nip out lol. The fridge again wasn’t at the right temperature which I have addressed twice before. Mattress might need replacing but wasn’t an issues for me I slept very well. I have booked again so all is good. The apartment is stunning n the views. Falling asleep n waking up listening to the waves. This time there was a tray of tea, coffee biscuits etc but for me personally I would of preferred toilet roll but everyone is different and you can’t please everyone. Thank you again for an amazing time.

  • "The fridge doesn't keep items cold despite turning up to the highest level, they are cool but not as cold as you would normally expect."

    Also the main bed isn't very comfortable, you can feel the springs when lying on it. Other than that it was a lovely stay.

  • "Lovely property & in a fantastic location."

    Went in the winter & the flat was lovely & warm, so after being out all day was nice & cosy to stay at in with everything you need to cook a nice meal & relax. We left something behind & Sykes as promised posted it back to us promptly.

  • "We love this flat, as I’ve said time and time again when asking for a review."

    We’ve worked out we’ve been every year(sometimes twice a year!) since 2013. What a little find! I never really want to share with others in fear of losing out because they book it before me. Haha! I’d cry!!! We’ve even made good friends with the others that stay in number 3 at the same time. We love Weymouth and surrounding areas. This flat is a perfect home from home! A time to really relax and enjoy the sea views. Thank you.

  • "The apartment location was fantastic."

    Sykes cottages were very quick with a response for our late booking (day before we went!) and the service and communication from Sykes was brilliant. The apartment was just outside the town so it was a bit of a walk but for us this was ok. It was flat and even. The area (as we were just outside town) was very peaceful with just the gentle waves for company. There was quite a climb of stairs for the top floor apartment which was a struggle with all our bags, but we had a few breaks as we climbed ! The apartment had everything that you needed, however, you will need to take additional toilet rolls as there is only one in each toilet so if more than 2of you, you may get through them very quickly!!!! I did miss the personal touch of the apartment, (welcome package , tissues,shampoo, shower gel) but this is just my opinion. The apartment was clean and tidy and would recommend to anyone that enjoys walking or even just stopping in as we could have watched the sea all day every day from the apartment. We were very lucky that the weather was fantastic for September. So we did loads of walking and went on the rib boat to durdle dor (again, would highly recommend) Overall a very enjoyable stay and would recommend

  • "This was a last minute booking as our previous accommodation with another company had been double booked."

    The staff at Sykes were really helpful in finding us a last minute place and the booking process was fairly simple, apart from an issue with payment as we were in Guernsey at time of booking! The accommodation was excellently placed, away from the town but within walking distance. Wonderful views, clean and comfortable.

  • "Extremely frustrated at length of time kept waiting on the phone to advise we had unfortunately locked ourselves out of the apartment."

    We ended up leaving the pub we had chosen to eat in to rush over to the office so that we could ensure we were able to get back into the property and then relax. Not the sort of service we used to get when it was actually 'Dream Cottages' that ran the office.

  • "The double bed mattress needs replacing urgently as the springs are protruding so we didn't have one good night's sleep in the 7 nights."

    This was a real shame as the apartment was glorious. The door to the clothes dryer was broken so, made it very difficult to use. It just needs replacing. The kettle needs descaling/cleaning as all drinks had a greasy film. When you fill the kettle with water you can see the film on top. Clean it using Oust descaler - it will fix this problem immediately! The owner will need to buy a new can opener as the one supplied disintegrated in my hand as I used it. I left it with all of the pieces on the side in the kitchen so it can be seen. The cooking tongs need replacing as they are plastic and old and as a result bits of plastic was coming off when used. Just for your info, some of the light bulbs need replacing - one in the lounge to the freestanding lamp and kitchen under-lighting. The owner won't know unless someone mentions it. In the wooden cupboard in the main bathroom on the first shelf, there is an old toilet brush stuffed at the back - I suggest this is moved as it doesn't look very nice. Finally, the intercom system didn't allow you to buzz people up and I don't know whether this function has been disabled deliberately or whether there is a fault which is why I mention it. If all of the above were fixed it would have been a faultless review.

  • "The apartment was in an ideal position, overlooking the beach."

    Everything was very neat and tidy and fully equipped. If I have to comment on a negative, the bed could do with being more comfortable. Plenty of places to eat in and around Weymouth. Would recommend the Sunday lunch at Weymouth Pavilion, excellent value. The Oasis Café in Overcombe is well worth a visit, very popular. All in all, despite the weather at times, we had a brilliant stay and would book again.

  • "This is the 4th time we have booked this apartment which speaks for itself!"

    A wonderful apartment, consistently clean on all 4 of our arrivals! Really like the key safe which makes arrival really easy. The views are tremendous - worth the climb of the 31 stairs to get to the apartment. The mattresses are probably ready to be replaced as they are very, very soft and may be a problem for anyone with back issues. Potential customers need to be aware there are no 'black out curtains' just blinds so if you need really dark space to sleep that may cause you a problem although it wasn't an issue for us and we really enjoyed having the windows open through the night to hear the sound of the sea. Love the fact there is just a pathway in front of the property not a road as it is not noisy. Also despite being a road near to the back of the property you don't really pick that noise up in the apartment. We have stayed here in October and July, August and this really is the perfect all year round property and we hope to be back for visit number 5 at some point!

Take an evening walk along the Esplanade to the town centre and visit the popular local amenities while watching how beautiful the Old Harbour looks after the sunset. Get ready for your day out in the comfortable bathroom while the children play in the twin room.

You can walk along the Rodwell trail from Weymouth to the Isle of Portland following a disused railway line which is now a green paradise for wildlife.

Along the way you can stop and enjoy refreshments at the ruins of Sandsfoot Castle. A short bus ride or drive in the car will also take you to the beautiful and unique Isle of Portland with its famous Portland Bill lighthouse or visit the quarries, now turned to nature reserves.
