  • “The cottage was filthy and we spent the first two hours of our arrival trying to make the property habitable for the week.”

    I took photo's when we arrived as I was gobsmacked that this is actually acceptable to hire out in the current climate with the risk of Covid (you allow 7 hours at change over to make sure the property is Covid safe - there is no way on earth this property is Covid safe). When we finished cleaning we went to make a cup of tea and the kettle was full of limescale and poured out into the mug, so then we had to go back to the shop to buy de-scaler to get rid of all the build up.

    I took photo's when we arrived as I was gobsmacked that this is actually acceptable to hire out in the current climate with the risk of Covid (you allow 7 hours at change over to make sure the property is Covid safe - there is no way on earth this property is Covid safe). When we finished cleaning we went to make a cup of tea and the kettle was full of limescale and poured out into the mug, so then we had to go back to the shop to buy de-scaler to get rid of all the build up. The dining chair was broken, the toilet seat on the top floor was broken and there was ice the size of an iceberg in the fridge. There was mould in the bedroom (I know it is an old cottage but that mould has been there for a while), dirt and stains to all worksurfaces and cupboard doors, stained coffee table, crisps underneath the coffee table. I have a health condition which requires me to keep my environment clean otherwise it can put me in hospital with life threatening Sepsis, I spent most of the week fretting in case I picked anything up from the uncleanliness. We didn't think there was any point in reporting the issues we had, as we could see from looking at previous reviews left for the property, nothing has been done to rectify those issues. The grey tiled floor was extremely dirty and had crumbs and dirt all over and in all the corners (when using kitchen roll to wipe up some water spilt it became evident just how dirty the floor was). On Thursday evening a local living opposite decided to have a street party until 5am the following morning, my husband came back from the take away to find people leant up against his car so he politely asked them to move. The next day, as well as having no sleep, when we took a look at the car it was left with drinks spillage all the way across the car and a scratch along the wheel arch. I would appreciate some contact so I can provide you with the photos that I have to show how very poor the cleanliness is to the property. For the extortionate price we paid to hire the property this was not at all what we expected and are extremely disappointed and will think twice before we use Sykes/Dream Cottages again.

The property

Anchor Cottage was lovingly restored and updated, and the interior now boasts a contemporary feel, with the modern open plan sitting/ dining room leading to the kitchen; a perfect social area.

Completed to a high standard throughout, the cottage with stylish bathroom / shower rooms and completed with a long sleek kitchen.

Located on a paved street and nestled among old fisherman's cottages, close to the harbour edge Anchor makes a perfect home for families, or two couples wanting to holiday together.

A must visit is the Tudor House opposite Anchor, one of a few remaining original Tudor buildings dating from 17th Century.

Just a minute away is Hope Square, a pretty area bordered with restaurants, bistros and a pub, a great place to relax and watch the world go by.

This holiday cottage is located just seconds away from the old harbour in Weymouth where you can view yachts and working fishing boats busy in the harbour.

Walking along the harbour and cross the town bridge which rises throughout the day to let boats in and out of the harbour.

Adjacent to the town and a lovely five-minute walk from Anchor is the main Weymouth beach, stretching over three miles – it is the perfect location for a shoreline walk, sand castle building or just sitting and enjoying the gentle lapping of the shallow waters.

Anchor is the perfect location for a harbourside holiday in Weymouth.

Everything you need to have a seaside holiday is stay just a few minutes away.

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!
