  • "We had a slight issue with the boiler on arrival."

    I rang the office which has an out of office message. It said to leave a message which I did. A lovely lady rang back immediately. She had a guy over within 20 minutes who was really nice and had the problem sorted in no time. Really impressed.

  • "We absolutely loved our stay, a lot of thought has gone into making this comfortable."

    The highlight is the huge open plan kitchen, dining and living room. Also 2 parking spaces which are easy to access. We will stay again.

  • "We love this house, the upstairs area is well designed and perfect for family gatherings."

    It was lovely to arrive to a Christmas tree and a box of goodies. The kitchen area is well-equipped and the seating area comfortable. The bedrooms are spacious, the shower in the en-suite especially good.

    We would liked to have booked for next year but the change to Friday to Friday letting does not suit us.

  • "We have been to the upside down house for quite a few years now as it's such a good location with ideal parking and outside space It's nice to see it's had a bit of a face lift, as was looking tired last time."

    It was a pity that some of the brackets for the balcony doors didn't have screws or weren't screwed in. Would have been good to have a summer duvet on the bed as the one we had was very thick and heavy and as it was the hottest week of the year made sleeping a bit uncomfortable. Thick dust behind the bedside cabinets, only found due to plugging in charger. Small points easily remedied that didnt make much difference to a very comfortable and enjoyable Stay. We wanted and would have booked for next year as usual until we realised the same week was over six hundred pounds more. I appreciate the last year or so has been bad for the company and owners alike and expected to pay a bit more but I think six hundred plus is being greedy. Hope to be able to return in the future.

  • "Everything was great really a lot better than we expected."

    Kitchen was perfect everything we needed. Totally recommended. Two slight issues for us as a family was the timed heating. It cut off at night and didn’t come back on early enough for us but we worked around it. Second issues is we tried and tried to get hold to Skyes on the Sunday on the 24hr number and got no reply nor on the Monday morning which was stressful as we were trying to extend our booking. However the property was excellent and we will be back definitely.

    The only issue we had was we couldn't find the remote control for the bedroom tv.While searching for the control unit we found a child's sock and pants under the bed with the remote control.We went to office and complained and they said with covid compliant cleaning it was not good enough as we cannot get in to the property till 5pm.Other than that we had a very nice time

  • "Lovely house situated in the heart of Brewers Quay."

    The property was very spacious and comfortable and for our group of 5 and our dog, suited us perfectly. Initial issues re a leak from all the rain was quickly resolved and dealt with well by both the owner of the house and Dream Cottages. However, work was being carried out on the adjoining property for the whole of the time we were on holiday. There was extensive scaffolding to the property and the noise was horrendous from 10am until 4pm Monday-Friday. Dream Cottages were made aware of this and I’m awaiting a response from them. While we didn’t let this spoil our holiday, it was completely unacceptable.

  • "We loved the airy open plan of the house, and apart from a couple of lamps that did not work plus the edge of one of the external doors having sharp nails sticking out, enjoyed our break."

    The location was excellent, meaning we could swim in the sea every day. We did not use the outside space after seeing someone spray it with weedkiller just after our arrival. That was a shame,

  • "The home itself was lovely, great location and 2 parking bays made life a lot easier for us."

    The only things I would like to make you aware of is the fridge is not really big enough for 6 people. An additional drinks fridge or just a bigger stand alone is really what is required for this size property. The washing machine was extremly noisey and we were concerned to use it in case it disturbed our neighbours. Sofas were not greatly comfortable but not the end of the world. The location of the property was what was important to us and for that it ticked all the boxes. We would definately return to this property.

  • "Upsidedown House is a well-located dog-friendly property in a gated development with two parking spaces, and with an outside space not mentioned in the property listing - this 'garden' area was ground-floor level, accessed either through a gate by the parking spaces or down an external staircase from the dining area, and had pebbles for most of it but also a small raised terrace with table and chairs."

    This garden area was very convenient with our little dog, as it gave her an area to explore that was away from the distractions of the parking area. Upsidedown House is a minute or two walk from the Harbour, with lots of cafes/pubs/restaurants between it and the bridge over to the Town Centre. The property itself was well-maintained, and the areas with hard floors were the best kept - some of the carpets were a little tired / needed extra attention, but being dog-friendly we know this is a challenge. The open-plan living space was huge, bright, and airy. We had windows open most of the time day and night, and were never disturbed by local noise, although staying in September there may be less going on locally than in the summer. You do hear noise through the walls from the next property, as being conversions of old buildings the soundproofing is maybe not as robust as in newer properties. The wi-fi was excellent. The shower stalls in both bathrooms had excellent pressure, but did feel a little bit cramped - we both banged our elbows in our respective bathrooms. Beds were comfortable and with decent linens, and towels provided were of good quality. Welcome basket of teas, coffees, biscuits, etc. was a nice touch. A few of the kitchen items (glassware and crockery) needed re-washing before use, but there were plenty of glasses, mugs, plate, bowls, cutlery etc. for a larger group - we were just two people and a dog. We made use of the washing machine once, but the airer to hang the clothes to dry seemed broken in some way so we couldn't get it to stand up as it should - we propped it up in the bathtub and latterly in a doorway, and it worked okay but was not ideal. The Dreams Cottages team have their office right outside the gates of the Court where Upsidedown House is, and it is convenient to have them close by for questions/issues - we collected the keys from them directly, as they had contacted us during our journey to advise the property's key safe was malfunctioning, and the key safe was fixed within a couple of days after our arrival. We will definitely return to Upsidedown House in the future, as we had a lovely relaxing break, and barely had to use the car due to the excellent location.

    The main room on the upper floor was really spacious and ideal for a family Christmas.

The gated parking was very useful and the proximity of the Nothe, the harbour and the town made the location ideal.

About the location

BREWERS QUAY HARBOUR

Dorchester 8.7 miles; West Lulworth 15.8 miles

Brewers Quay is the old Victorian brewery situated at the heart of the harbour, in Weymouth, Dorset. Much of the grade II listed complex and surrounding brewery buildings date from the late 1800 early 1900’s and many have stones inlaid commemorating their construction year. This area is now a popular destination with many restaurants, café and bars, creating a vibrant culture, where you can relax with a drink and watch the world go by. Tucked away down the harbourside streets, you will find original Tudor harbour buildings, estimated to have been built in 1600 and well worth a visit, with a very interesting history to share. You will also find the Weymouth Museum, with some incredible exhibitions, and the harbour is also home to the lifting bridge, where you can watch the luxury yachts head out to sea, and then walk over the bridge to the town's winding streets of boutique shops and the seafront esplanade and beach. There is more to this seaside town than meets the eye; Brewers Quay is a much-loved holiday destination in Weymouth!
