  • "We were pleased with the cottage."

    Excellent location, fully equipped. Even had buckets/spades and crabbing sets left for us to use. My only gripe if i had to find one was the master bedroom having two made up single beds. Not really fitting in my opinion esp as second bedroom had a king size in but no wardrobe/dressing table so parents have to sleep in the singles. It does say can be pushed together but as covers and duvets both separate we found they just moved apart constantly. Doesnt really make sense and would be better to put them in the second bedroom for kids who wanted a twin room really. Otherwise a good stay and would return.

  • "Enjoyed staying in Neves despite mixed weather."

    The house was very clean and tidy. The kitchen was very well stocked with utensils and cooking equipment. The proximity to the seafront was excellent, (only about 4 minutes walking). The free parking space was invaluable and one of the main reasons for booking this house. The space was advertised as for two cars but it would be a tight squeeze for two large vehicles like Range Rovers etc. The bedrooms were light and airy and although it was quite chilly for us for a couple of days, the duvets were adequate. We did not use the top floor lounge but it would be very useful for a family, especially with teenage children. The house was not very far only around the corner from a convenience shop which was useful for basic requirements. The outside seating area was partly covered and there was a useful small washing line. The only minor issue we had was that we could not watch catch up TV as Sky kept asking for a pin number. I phoned dream cottages and the owners advised that they did not have a pin number. So we were only able to use the free view channels. This was a little annoying as the main TV programmes were mostly the Euro football matches. I googled the pin number issue and apparently the pin number to use (if you have not set one up) is the last 4 digits of your account number which of course we did not have access to. I mention this because other guests may find this an issue and it needs to be resolved. We ended up watching TV on our laptop using BBC i player etc. All in all a very nice clean and comfortable house and very convenient in that you do not have to use your car once there. I would stay at this property again if returning to Weymouth.

  • "Lovely holiday at Neves."

    Second time here for us so we knew what to expect. A couple of things that weren’t quite up to standard this time was the fact that we weren’t given hand towels for one of the bathrooms and weren’t given a bathmat in the other. Fortunately we had taken extra towels so this wasn’t a problem. If you book Neves as 2 couples you have to be aware that the master bedroom is huge and has plenty of storage , where the second doesn’t even have a wardrobe, just one chest of drawers and hooks on the wall being provided for hanging space. Space is also very limited. Having said this , the fact that there is parking for 2 cars is a massive bonus in Weymouth!

    FELT LIKE YOU WERE SAT IN A GOLDFISH BOWL. WITH BY PASSERS ABLE TO LOOK IN. THE STAIRS ARE STEEP. OTHERWISE THE PROPERTY IS WELL EQUIPED AND CLOSE TO THE BEACH. GREAT BASE FOR A HOLIDAY WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND

  • "Great house with plenty of facilities."

    Big bonus was the off road parking this is what made us book this property) Cinema room in the loft a good feature although the sofas up there were not comfy and my husband who isn't so nimble struggled to get up and down the staircase! Lovely to be able to walk a few minutes to the beach and centre of Weymouth so we could have several car-free days.

  • "We had a glorious week in sunny Weymouth and found Neves house in an ideal location, meaning we didn't have to use the public toilets so soon after lockdown restrictions were lifted, instead it was close enough to pop back from the beach when needed."

    The upper room was used well by our two teenagers in the evenings. We would certainly like to come back again one day.

  • "The negatives of this property were:- The property didn't smell very nice when we first arrived."

    We found dust etc under furniture. There was food left in the freezer and sugar left in the canister. The stairs were awkward due to the steps being small especially the ones going up to the den. The pillows in the twin room were uncomfortable, the beds creaked and the curtains didn't smell very nice. The kingsize bedroom was a little small. The old fire places in the bedrooms looked nice but the mantelpieces caused problems getting around the beds! Our guests and ourselves are all over 60 years old which made the stair gates totally unnecessary and as we were unable to remove them they became a hindrance and potentially, especially the gate on the landing, a trip hazard! The highchair in the dining room unnecessarily took up space. All four of us ended up using the upstairs bathroom as the downstairs bathroom was inconvenient and extremely cold. The parking area really needed dropped kerbs and the greenery removing as it was fairly difficult to get our two cars in. The positives of the property were:- Great location - within minutes we were able to reach the beach and town centre. Having parking was definitely an advantage. The kitchen was well equipped. The upstairs bathroom was lovely and the shower was fantastic! It was a nice place for a family get together..........there's a great selection of games, dvds etc. The den upstairs was a nice touch too. Overall we enjoyed our week in Weymouth and will return!

  • "Overall the home was very clean, and well maintained."

    The kitchen was very well equipped, plenty of utensils. We didn’t get to use the tv/entertainment room as we were with family for Christmas. My only negative comment, the downstairs bathroom was too cold to use.

  • "We were very disappointed to find the WiFi wasn’t working and although we could not fault Sykes in getting this issue sorted it did not happen until the last day of our holiday."

    Having a young baby in the party meant my son and his wife were in every evening and were looking forward to being able to watch Netflix etc which they were unable to do. We found the smaller of the 2 double bedrooms extremely tight with no wardrobe just a few coathangers hanging on some pegs on the wall. In addition there was no light bulb in one of the bedside lights. The downstairs shower room would have benefitted from a larger hand basin. Having said this the location was fantastic being able to walk to the beach and town. We made use of both the car parking spaces which was great. The kitchen was well stocked with all you could need to be able to cook a family dinner and the fridge was a great size. The attic tv room was great as an extra living and relaxing room . All in all apart from a few niggles a great place to stay.

  • "A great house in a great location in Weymouth."

    You can tell the owners have put a lot of effort into making it a lovely home. Very little to wrong with the house. If I were to give it a 10 out of 10 then the points below would need to be addressed 1) The most challenging issue was internet speed. Less than 1/2 mb of wireless speed is not acceptable to advertise the property as having wireless broadband. I work in telecoms and measured the speed. I had work to do while away and had to use my work mobile to do this instead of laptop due to the ridiculously low speed. Also my kids couldn’t connect at night to their laptops. Not acceptable in today’s connected world and this will prevents me from coming back. 2) The house is suffering or has suffered from damp. The smell was apparent but not unbearable. The wallpaper with lounge had come away as a result. The curtains and linens smelt damp in the front bedroom 3) Maybe just me but took me a day to realise the cutlery was in the lounge and not kitchen 4) No frying pan - small issue but would have been to have one.. Otherwise a brilliant property

    Thank you for your feedback on the property. The internet speed was highlighted to us by the next guest, unfortunately a fault was found on the line which was quickly rectified bring this issue to an end. We are sorry to read about the problems you encountered with the properties scent. From time to time, were the weather conditions fluctuates a properties scent may vary throughout the year. Due to the space in the kitchen, the cutlery is placed in the lounge/dining room sideboard for ease, when setting the table. There are two frying pans in the kitchen for guest to use and I’m not sure if this was overlooked. Once again thank you for your observations, we hope this has not put you off booking again with us and we hope to welcome you back to Dorset soon. Property Owner

    Literally up to the top of the road and you're at the beach. An easy 10 min walk into the main town and along to the harbour where there are loads of restaurants etc. Plenty of food shops nearby, many within walking distance. The house is very clean and comfortable and brilliantly equipped for small children. Lots of little touches like stairgates, non slip bath mat, plastic plates and cutlery etc that just make life so much easier! It's a cliché but it's a genuine home from home. We had a fantastic week.
