  • "Half the racking in the cooker was missing"

  • "Fantastic location, window and balcony views fascinating with boats and people always on the move."

    Lots more to Weymouth than we realised. Can be a bit noisy at times with live bands in the pubs a new the bridge going up but that comes with being where the action is! Apartment really comfortable and with the car park underneath and accessible from the building with lift and stairs to all floors it is so convenient - perfect! Flat shows a bit of wear and tear which I find comforting as can live in it rather than spend the whole time worrying about keeping it all perfect. Super location and flat - will be back.

  • "The apartment is ideally situated, with lovely views of the harbour, but is in need of some maintenance."

    Both the window in one bedroom and the Juliet balcony door in the other bedroom did not close properly meaning we could hear more noise than we expected. The door handle to the balcony is loose, the lounge carpet is threadbare in places. The sofa was torn and the back of it was dusty. We had to clean the inside of the kitchen cupboards and drawers, along with the contents, as they were dirty. There was grease on the cooker hood and food splashes on the hob. With a 4 star rating we would have expected better than this. We have been using Dream Cottages for years and this is the first time we have felt disappointed.

  • "Lovely flat."

    Excellent position. Very clean.REALLY needs a shower in the main bathroom. Why no dishwasher. Who uses a washing machine on holiday? Balcony chairs pretty bad but dining chairs fitted on the balcony nicely. Lift worked well.

  • "Wonderful holiday but disappointed by state of apartment."

    2019, I reported glass shelf in fridge missing still missing. Lounge carpet dirty and stained. Cushions dirty, sofa leather torn. En suite shower mould rust. Bath slow to fill takes 10-15 minutes. Mattress protector too small for bed and stained. Light pulls dirty. Balcony loose boards. Really disappointed that these things could have been sorted in lockdown. This a wonderful apartment but sad to see it in need of TLC!

  • "The apartment was nice and big, with a great location."

    But, the cleaning was not very good - especially as we were told early check in was not possible due to the deep cleaning needed. There was food remnants in the fridge, brown sticky stuff on the kitchen counter and the shower had thick black mould on the shower hose - which we could clean with a bit of scrubbing. The other downside was the lack of shower in the main bathroom - which wasn’t noted in the property description on the Vrbo listing. With a property rented at this price, we expected all the comfort and convenience we have at home - and it was inconvenient to only have a shower in the on suite, that 4 adults had to share. We chose this property for the 2 bathrooms.

  • "Carpets in living room stained, walls need a coat of paint, windows do not open or close correctly."

    Light from the harbour bridge lights up the bedrooms making it very difficult to sleep due to no blackout curtains. Vacuum cleaner handle was broken looked like it had not been emptied in months. Furniture showing signs of wear, decking on balcony needs attention.

  • "After having this property for many years, i found this year was far the worst."

    Considering there were supposed to be extra cleaning measures due to covid this was not the case. Upon arrival i had to spend over an hour cleaning and sanatising the property myself. The toilet had remains of excrement, the sofa was dirty and filthy cushions on top, the cooking pans still had food stuck in them so again i had to wash them. The headboards were thick with dust, the bedroom drawers were broken. This does not justify the hours of waiting to go into the property to start the hoilday. If i had not already got the same property booked for this september then i would never have it again. I am very anxious now about it. Could i suggest running a text system for when a property is ready for clients to be able to go in instead of waiting until 5 when there is no need if that property is ready. For buildings with shared lifts this causes problems as everyone arriving wants the lifts the same time. Also i once again express that the time does not justify the cleaning done.

  • "The balcony door doesn’t lock."

    Why advertise a dishwasher and leave tablets to use when there is no dishwasher. There does seem to be an awful lot of crockery for four people.

  • "Harbourside Apartment was in a fantastic location."

    My little boy loved watching the bridge going up and down to let the boats sail through. A little noisy during the weekend nights but to be expected in a town. The apartment had everything we needed and was well stocked with kitchen equipment, utensils and even a few books and games. I would recommend it to others.

    The flat is very nice clean and very comfortable, the only disappointment was that there is no wardrobe in bedrooms, also the shower is very small and the water was a bit slow, but apart from that I would definitely stay they again

  • "Firstly the staff at the Dream cottage located in Weymouth were superb."

    Great support as it was our first time at the property. The Apartment was fantastic with great views over the harbour. HOWEVER - It is a pity that a Nightclub is located just across the road from the Apartment. We were constantly being woken by the very noisy music (especially the base drum!) right through until around 3am. This was the only negative issue about the Apartments location.

  • "Lift does not always respond if going down to garage."

    Seems to work ok going up and all other destinations. Intercom to front door may not be working. Sometimes the door from the garage will not open from the garage side and the shutter to the garage sometimes takes a while to work (may be the battery in the fob). I will be leaving a review on trip advisor telling about all the good points of the accommodation without mentioning these items as they would not have been a problem had I not been in a wheelchair. Otherwise the apartment is great with perfect views over the bridge and harbour.

  • "The property description is incorrect - it says one of the bedrooms has a king-sized bed which was important for us when we booked as my husband is 6ft 5" but in fact the bed is only queen sized (5ft wide) not king-sized (6ft wide) - it also had a very hard mattress which was therefore uncomfortable for us (however I do appreciate that mattress firmness is a personal preference)."

    I also note that the curtains in the main bedroom did little to keep the light out - with the town lifting bridge so close and multiple street lights on all night the curtains did little to darken the room at night only providing privacy and as a consequence I had to go out and buy a sleep eye mask to use all week. The apartment could also have been cleaned better with a large clump of hair on arrival on a bedroom floor and a used plaster in a bowl of pot pourrii. The location was however great.

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!
