  • "This apartment is deceptive."

    In the listing and at first glance, it appears to be of a good standard. However, living in it soon makes problems and issues apparent. 1 - The bathroom is good but doesn't have a shower over the bath, meaning the only shower in the property is in the double room ensuite. This isn't adequate for three adults. 2 - The ensuite - and the shower - are absolutely tiny! Opening and closing doors is tricky and it's impossible to dry yourself in the ensuite. This room is clearly recently renovated, but there is an extremely tatty old brass handle in an otherwise modern bathroom. Along with gaps around the doorframe that could easily be filled, this spoils the appearance of the room. 3 - Outdoor space - booked for this reason and didn't use it. Depressing space and I wasn't about to clean the filthy garden furniture in order to sit out there. 4 - Window seat - needs more comfortable cushions, especially as the seating was needed with three adults in the property. 5 - Sofa - really, really needs a deep clean (or replacing) 6 - Dining chairs - really could - and should - have been cleaned more thoroughly. 7 - Kitchen cupboards - the laminate has been affected by heat and us falling off the cupboard doors. 8 - General cleaning should have been better. Cobwebs on ceilings, marks on walls etc. Nothing major but easily fixable as part of the standard clean at changeover. 9 - General decoration - I appreciate the property gets a lot of use but keeping up with the decoration - especially after repairs - needs to be a priority. The double bedroom ceiling is awful; stained and cracked. Plus points - the view from the window and location. I stay in Dorset a lot, so know there are better properties at this price point. It wasn't dreadful, but I wouldn't stay again (which I'd decided within an hour of being there). Disappointing.

  • "I stayed at Harbours Edge in May 2022 with my mother, two sisters and baby nephew."

    The flat location can’t be beaten as it is situated next to the harbour and opposite ‘Rendevous’. There is a lovely bay window which provides views of the harbour and we all enjoyed watching the bridge go up and down and the little passenger train ride past the window. The beds and sofa were very comfortable. The negatives were that the flat was filthy, and I am not sure if it was cleaned prior to our arrival. The mugs and cutlery were very dirty, and we had to wash them all before use. the bathroom extractor fan blew out thick black dust all over the place which was very unhygienic, the fan has obviously never been cleaned. There was also thick black dust underneath the sofa and the floor was sticky. Another negative was the provisions. Only two toilet rolls, two bin bags, and no washing up liquid had been provided for our stay of four adults and one infant. We had to go out and buy these items when we had already paid a lot for the holiday. There were no recycling facilities at Harbours Edge. We took our glass and plastic to Weymouth ASDA to recycle but there were no plastic/ glass recycling facilities.

  • "Really nice location with lots to see from the window seat."

    Clean and tidy with well equipped kitchen.Ensuite shower room was very small and could benefit from a little shelf to put shower gel etc.The windows in the lounge could not be opened and I'm afraid the courtyard was a complete eyesore,such a shame because with little effort it could be really nice.I would stay again however had a lovely time.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Harbours Egde, especially its location."

    When we arrived, we were greeted by a light smell of bleach which was reassuring to know in these times that the cottage had been cleaned properly. The double bed was comfortable and kitchen was very well equipped, but we mostly ate out. The bay windows however were packed out with tissue paper which meant they couldn’t be opened and fresh air could not be had. The shower was on the small side, parking is a pleasant walk away. These were minor issues to us as the property was a stones throw away from all the bars and restaurants and town around old Weymouth!

  • "Great location."

    Not overly clean. Found a packet of sweets with wrappers by the side of the bed in the double room. Found children's art bits when moved the coffee table. Very dusty in the bathroom. Especially on the top of the toilet. Garden needs seriously looking at. Parking ticket not obvious and had to visit dream cottages office to sort. As a note. We have family in Weymouth and have visited more than once a year for over 15 years. Have always use Drwam Cottages. Never had any issues Especially with cleaning. Can't say this is the case recently. WHY?

  • "Given the late check in time, the flat was not particularly clean."

    There was still spill marks on the floor so they clearly hadn’t been mopped. We have been staying here for several years and you can’t beat the location but the price has increased by 50% in the last year for no real change to the flat except a new bathroom which was long overdue. Unfortunately Dream cottages just seem to be cashing in on the current situation and this will make us go elsewhere next year.

  • "Beautifully presented flat = Dirty on arrival and had to leave for it to be re-cleaned, not what you expect anytime let alone during a pandemic."

    Old dated and damp flat with black mould on blinds, the walls are all marked and scruffy, paint is flaking off the walls and ceiling, bathroom tiles are broken and dirty, the flat just smells of damp and is not a nice place to stay. The garden is not a relaxing space and needs a lot of work. The only nice thing about this flat is the window seat and looking out on the harbour. Awful property and in no way a dream cottage that’s for sure.

  • "The location of this property is second to none."

    We took 3 books each and only managed one between us. The window seat is a gem, watching the harbour and the opening of the bridge and best of all people watching was so absorbing. The television really is not needed!! The kitchen is bright and well equipped with china, glasses and cookware. It was spotlessly clean with new tea towels and hand sanitiser. There were even a few washing detergent tablets provided. The two bathrooms had soap and plenty of toilet rolls. The bedrooms were clean and comfortable, especially the double bed. Plenty of towels. Due to Covid, we chose to take our own bed linen, pillows and towels, this was unnecessary, I was confident in using everything that was provided. I cannot praise this apartment and it's location enough. Very close to Asda, Spar, Tesco Metro and Harbour Stores for shopping. Loads of pubs, the fish and chip shop Bennetts is fab. We took a portable bbq with us to utilise the back garden, however an outside light would have been nice. Thank you Dreams for a fab holiday apartment.

    Bedroom. In kitchen there were things left over from previous guess, ie salt and pepper, cooking oil, foy, kitchen towel, toilet roll etc, that need throwing away due to covid 19. Tree needs cutting back in yard, bins need to sorted our a bit better. Windows in and out at the front need a good clean. Great position, comfortable bed and clean. Lighting to bright in front room needs updating, very 70s lighting fixture needs to be bought up to date like rest of apartment. Thanks dream cottages, will be booking again

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Harbours Edge it was perfect."

    The only downside was the Friday swap over by our neighbours who appeared to think it would be fun to have a happy birthday sing song about 1.30 am and when you are driving home with a 4.30 hour journey it was quite poor but this was out of your control. Other holiday makers should be more considerate. We will definitely be booking again.

  • "We have stayed in Harbour Edge a few times."

    The flat is an excellent location and has everything you would need. Our check in was delayed 2 hours to allow for deep cleaning but the flat still had crumbs on the kitchen counter and loose dirt on the cushions. I did notify the office of this. Appreciate its been a difficult time but the flat is in need of some TLC and would have benefitted from some work before starting to let again. The paint is peeling on the bathroom wall and the bay window is rotting. Note: The courtyard is not well kept and is not a usable space.

    A coat of paint on the front door and the garden furniture wouldn’t be a bad idea. On first appearance it seems clean but then you see the dirty blinds and skirting boards and marks on the bed room carpet. It was a good place to stay apart from that well equipped.

  • "Should be advised disabled visitors have to climb high steps to front door of property and car park is up a steep hill."

    Our car stayed in that car park all week as we could only access it by taxi. In fact we had to use taxis during the weeks holiday when we would have used our car. Would have expected the property to have had a 'spring clean' before the season but this had evidently not been done. Kitchen area was fine but shower cubicle had dirty grout and the shower head hose was black with mould. The property had received a basic clean of kitchen and shower/bathroom sinks and toilets but any marks on walls/paintwork ignored. Padded covers on seats in window area were unclean and needed replacing. Patio area at the rear needed weeding and general clean up of leaves and overhanging tree branches. Patio furniture needed a few coats of wood preservative. Could have been sorted within a couple of hours. In general the property has been neglected by the owners. Boiler was not working when we arrived, but plumber sent by Dream Cottages arrived quickly and sorted boiler in minutes although timer was out of sync for the week.

    The views are amazing from the window seat- we never turned the tv on for our entire stay.

About the location


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!
