  • "We’ve been coming to Weymouth for a number of years but this was our first post covid visit and the first time staying on this side of the harbour."

    This compact cottage has everything you need and the welcome gift and tea/coffee tray is a lovely addition after a long journey. The location is fabulous and we didn’t need to use the car all week. Yes parking can be an issue but that’s Weymouth for you, it would be ideal if you could use the parking permit on the near by car park, but that’s just a suggestion and not a fault of the property. The house was absolutely spotless and warm and cosy. We have already booked for next year! A fab little place if you like to be close to the heart of everything- harbour, amusements and the beach.

    Having said that, the cottage was really well equipped, the beds were comfy and the location was great. We've been to Weymouth many times but this was our first time staying in a cottage and I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was..

  • "Really enjoyed out stay."

    The cottage was fantastic. Lovely touch with the welcome gift. Needed it after the long journey and the problem we had to sort out with the permit. It was well equipped. Wanted for nothing. Plenty of towels. Comfy beds and pillows. Well situated. A bit noisy but that is what you get for staying in the centre. Good double glazing. Had window open at night. Had to close it due to local pub banging the lid down on bin every 5 minutes. The front door lock needs addressing, very stiff. Freezer box needs defrosting. Needed to keep my dog food pouches in. You will save your self some money there on bills. Soon got use to parking system. A bit annoyed that local residents taking up zone F spaces in Helen Lane without a permit. There are 3 of them. This needs to be addressed with the local authority. A thank you to the owner for getting us a new parking permit as there was know sign of one when we arrived. We were on a very tight budget and couldn't afford the parking fees. Big thank you to Dream Cottages for looking after us with this problem. We will be back.

  • "Lovely property and brilliant location, really happy and would definitely consider returning / recommending."

    We'd read past holidaymakers complaining about noise from a nearby nightclub at the weekend, but we didn't notice anything. The only thing that might need attention is the thermostat... it's not accurate and even turned down to 15C the heating came on when it was definitely a normal room temperature of around 20C. It didn't in any way negatively impact our stay, we just thought you should know.

    Could do with a fan in the property for those super hot days with no breeze. Sadly a lot of noise Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights until 3-4am from a local pub/club. Great response from the contact person when the fire alarm batteries needed replacing - someone came and did it within a couple of hours and also called afterwards to check it was all ok. All in all, a lovely little place and would definitely consider staying again.

  • "Harbour Catch cottage is delightful."

    It is obvious that the owner takes great pride in the property as it is so beautifully presented. The finishing touches such as the little wooden cottages and holiday caravans on the shelving and the Weymouth related artwork on the walls show originality and individuality and the thoughtfulness of putting out a little handmade cottage gift with a bottle of wine and a handwritten welcome card for arriving guests is such a lovely thing to do. We absolutely loved the cottage and wished we had booked for longer….we went home very reluctantly! The comfort and cleanliness of the property is more than outstanding and the beds are very comfortable! The very close proximity to the harbour is perfect and it is also only a short walk to the seafront. We had no trouble parking (we were lucky enough to find one almost outside the cottage and had no reason to move the car during our stay) and there are plenty of the relevant zone permit spaces around the harbour and neighbouring streets. We ate out each day as there is plenty of choice around the harbour but you could very easily completely self-cater because the cottage is very well equipped. We will definitely be booking again - thank you for such a lovely place to stay

  • "Stayed here March 2022."

    This is a lovely little cottage, well presented, and clean. Washing machine is situated in an outside lockup, which personally, I would have removed the inside dishwasher to have machine inside, (but that's my own personal taste). Beds are very comfortable, kitchen well equipped.Shower over the bath does need replacing, which hopefully has been done by now, as very poor strength. The downside for us was, although it is an excellent location for harbour, pubs and shops, this is also a negative. As you are only across the road from the Ship Inn, and other pubs, it's very noisy late at night, with lorries and bin trucks starting up very early mornings. Maybe better windows would be an option.

  • "The parking permit can be useless on many occasions when the town is busy."

    The permit is a joint user with the general public. You need to advise your customers of the difficulty, we have already had words with Dream Cottages.

    Reviewed by Chris4.4May 2021

  • "I would advise a couple of things."

    1) The stuff within the cottage is very basic, so take any food and drink you need. 2) Parking is very, very limited. Even with the permit, you have to hunt around for a space. We were lucky to find one in Helen Lane, but we left it there for the week worried that if we moved it, we'd lose it! 3) The courtyard, isn't really a courtyard. There's barely room to turn around. 4) The toilet seat needs fixing 5) The sink in the bathroom was blocked. However, it was a lovely cottage, Weymouth and it's harbour is amazing. There's loads of pubs within hopping distance.

    . What about email or chat options? Also please tell the owner that the cottage was LOVELY BUT, in the master bedroom the mattress was VERY soft and gave us both bad backs... I would strongly advise they replace the mattress with a better quality one. Guests who don’t sleep well are not going to return!

    The location enables you to walk to all the many eating and drinking establishments in town. The convenience of just a short walk to take in the sights of Nothe gardens or the old harbour or the beach is so good. We will certainly come back to Weymouth again at this time of year when the crowds are gone and you can move around with ease.

  • "Location is brilliant, everything in walking distance."

    The house was small but sweet. Ideal for a weekend away but a week was too much and we couldn’t wait to get home. Few phone calls I made to dream cottages were completely unhelpful. Book to be independent because they won’t help. Parking - don’t expect it. I called when we arrived early to ask what the parking permit zones were and they couldn’t tell me. It’s parking zone F if you do book. Have a drive around because there will be nothing on Helens Lane it’s all private garages. The picture is misleading, the green garage next door in the photo isn’t part of the house at all. Parking zone F sometimes has some pay and displays. If you arrive early it’s probably best to pay if you can get a space and add the permit in once you’re in the house. You may have time to pull up, block the roads, chuck your things out and drive off before another car comes down otherwise it’s a hassle lugging everything round from wherever you get parked. Garden - what garden? It’s a small patio strip if you like pacing in the morning. Sofa felt old and dirty like you’d sit on it and get bug bites. Probably is clean enough but considering the house looks like it’s recently has a bit of new flooring and paint a few sofa is desperately needed. Main bedroom bed is a small double with a double bed topper, so you’ll feel like you’re falling out of bed every time. Worst weeks sleep and our bed was greatly appreciated when we got home. Pack your own pillows unless you’re not fussy about flat and cheap. Minimal facilities, assuming due to Covid but you’ll need tea, coffee, sugar, toilet rolls, hand soap, dish soap.. A small sample would have been a nice complimentary, but we did get a bottle of white wine complimentary- great when you’re pregnant and would prefer a cup of tea! Upon arrival, a glass was cracked, a plate chipped so I hope we won’t be accused for that. Overall, the only thing we were grateful for and enjoyed was having our dogs with us and the location was great with lots of dog friendly restaurants. If we decided to visit Weymouth again, I wouldn’t go to this house and I wouldn’t go through Dream Cottages.

    Cosy welcoming and comfy. The courtyard garden though is very small. We really enjoyed being right on the Quay side but also a few minutes walk the other way into town. The dog friendly beach is just around the corner. The only thing that marred our stay was parking! Although there is a permit supplied it is first come first served on the spaces available. This at the weekend especially meant riding around trying to find parking. Work on the harbour wall has also meant spaces are not available.

    Harbour Catch Cottage was very sweet and the general location interesting and fairly convenient ,however not really suitable for us. The information and description failed to state that the stairs were quite steep . we are in our 70’s. The double bedroom is very small. Good use has been made of space for clothes etc. But no room to turn around. Again ,we are over 70 and none too nimble. Kitchen space was limited too. Not equipped well. Lots of pans and baking dishes ,but not enough mugs/ cups once we’d had a cuppa and those cups were in the dish washer for example. No tea pot milk jug or sugar bowl. Nowhere to store our food, all cupboards filled with baking equipment! Dishwasher could not be opened as the nob of cupboard in the way, until we managed to swivel the dish washer asque PARKING! A big issue, especially on arrival. Procedure not clear in information as not sure which were the permitted areas. Not enough spaces any way. Beds and chairs lovely and comfy . T V and games and books etc. excellent. Happy time . Harbour very interesting. Lots to see and do. Good job we had our son with us to carry back and forth to car and to find somewhere to park and walk back to Harbour Catch Cottage
