  • "Fantastic views, property clean and tidy."

    Need better instructions for the heating system, the dining chairs have been re-covered, shame about the holes in the arm of the sofa. Kitchen floorboards very noisy/creaky when walking across them which disturbs the guests in the downstairs bedrooms. Overall the property needs a little updating, but is in a good location. Request to have beds changed around slightly was happily accommodated.

    The house is lovely and well situated , we have stayed there 6 times and are back again in march , it has one major issue which is very annoying to the downstairs guests , its the kitchen floor , it seriously need the Lino taken up and the floor boards either renewed or re scewed as it’s very noisy and annoying , but we love the property

  • "The location and views are totally amazing but we were disappointed with the house."

    It wasn’t cleaned to my standards. Placemats stuck together not been cleaned. Lots of finger marks on glass table. Dust and a tissue under bedside table. The bedrooms don’t offer much comfort. The beds are very uncomfortable and 2 bedrooms dingy. Dining chairs constantly shedding plastic coating when sat on. Needed to hoover most days. The sofa is very old and tatty. Desperately needs updating for the rental cost charged

    We found great places to eat and lots of things to do and visit . The house was well maintained (but the three piece suite is showing wear ) there were comprehensive instructions and everything you would need for a weeks stay , the location was unbeatable , magical ! The parking permit was very welcome , two permits would have been helpful .Thank you for a wonderful week.

  • "Unusually Dream Cottages' housekeeping was a little lax this visit, although cleanliness could not be faulted."

    Mutiny House comfortably accommodates a party of six, but not seven which we were. In a central position on Brewers Quay with pubs and shops on your doorstep. Booked off Sykes Cottages' website, a Company together with it's many subsidiaries that I will never use again. If you do be sure to read the terms and conditions thoroughly first, as I was told I should have done.

  • "Fine property and in spot reasonable distance to everything."

    Only real issue is people parking outside front door/in front of two of the bedrooms late in day and overnight. Traffic warden only comes around once a day and early. Signs outside saying no parking but locals (and one only lives immediately to the right of Mutiny House) put their vans there and don't give a wosit. Owner or holiday company really need to get something sorted rather than just sit back as seems to be a regular and very annoying problem

    There is one major problem with the property is that the kitchen floor creeks really badly , when you walk in the kitchen it disturbs anyone sleeping in rooms below , I’m sure this could be resolved by pulling back the Lino and screwing down floor boards as it’s very disturbing and annoying , other than that it’s a fantastic holiday home and we will be rebooking

  • "Fabulous weeks stay in Mutiny House, really felt like a home from home."

    Perfectly comfortable, warm and cosy. Superb views from the Lounge and kitchen windows to enjoy watching all the river and harbour activities. Just a short stroll to great pubs and cafes which we thoroughly enjoyed each day. Would highly recommend the Red Lion just around the corner for excellent food and great boho atmosphere. Enjoyed lovely walks along harbour and seafront everyday with plenty of places to stop for a coffee or pint along the way. Will certainly be rebooking Mutiny House for another visit to Weymouth, hopefully soon.

  • "Such a beautiful location, walking into that upstairs sitting room every morning was truly breathtaking!"

    Best crabbing in Weymouth right outside the door. Get some take away drinks from the pub. Adults and kids sorted. Halcyon days. It’s a quiet area at night and busy in the day. It’s a working harbour so lots of busyness, excited seagulls etc. But we loved all that. The house is fantastic. We were two families with kids who were teens and early twenties and there was space for all to be comfortable and enough bathrooms! The kitchen seemed to have enough resources. Great to have the big fridge freezer. Everything was working and beautifully clean. The parking space was a bonus. Especially in this prime location. Every morning we’d take our coffee and go and sit on the harbour wall and watch the world go by. Going to miss that! But we’ve already booked for next year.

  • "We have stayed at this property numerous times but this time we were disappointed with the conditions we found."

    Pots, pans and oven trays all needed washing as they were not in a useable condition. The showers were grubby with black mould around the shower trays and grouting. The shower heads need descaling and the shower hoses and bathroom taps all need a good clean. The skirtings of all rooms were dusty and the undersides of the kitchen cabinets dirty. In addition, the sofas and easy chairs are stained on the backs and arms and in need of cleaning. The carpets are also showing their age and would benefit from professional cleaning. The curtains in the downstairs double bedroom are still shedding their lining, a fact reported previously. Although we enjoyed our stay at this property, it was largely due to the excellent location and the efforts of Dream Cottages staff to address our concerns.

  • "Fridge freezer didn't work properly and froze the contents in the fridge so we had to throw it away, held together with gaffer tape, didn't get fixed while we were there so most of the week with out it."

    Damp bedding and bed in the main bed room, light fitting lose with it going on and off at will and when touched, lose oven door which took 20 minutes to warm up to 150 degrees so not usable. Debris, screws and plugs left in the bathroom sink and floor when the light fitting was changed late Friday night be fore we cam home, illegal parking outside the front door all week which made it difficult to get the buggy in the door, was impossible to get the paddle board in. Poor customer service, I received 8 emails with a reference number on it but very little was done to resolve the issues, just a standard we are sorry. Its only when i informed the office I was issuing a section 75 claw back that any contact was made. £1800 for a week you would expect a certain level of accommodation and service not what we received!

    Only two of us stayed so we didn't use the ground floor at all, we were very comfortable living upstairs. We loved the position of the house on the quayside. We parked the car and didn't use it at all during our stay, everything was in walking distance. We would love to stay again with the family when possible.

  • "Another lovely holiday in Mutiny House, despite the weather."

    Many thanks to management services for promptly sorting out the few glitches, even replacing the tumble dryer in record time. Perhaps the owners could be persuaded to leave a few spare light bulbs as the bulb in the standard lamp was not working and none of the others in the house were of the same fitting. In addition, the large lounge needs more than the overhead light to comfortably illuminate the area around the dining table, possibly another standard lamp behind the armchair or in the corner behind the table? In addition, the DVD player may benefit from a head clean as it would only play three of the eight dvds we brought with us. However, niggles aside, it is a nice, well equipped property in a brilliant location and we will be back again next year.

    Always spotlessly clean and welcoming. Just one point although not too serious but when you are downstairs, you can hear anyone walking around in the kitchen upstairs as the floorboards tend to creak quite a lot. Once again though we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mutiny House.Thank you.

    The kitchen does lack in a few basics if you like to cook at home. The downstairs bedrooms can be a bit noisy due to the location, but that is a really small price to pay for being in this location. Had the most amazing week with my mum and my brother and my 2 kids 9 & 7 they loved crabbing every night just outside the front door. I can’t wait to bring my husband here and stay here again. Great restaurants and cafes around I parked the car up and didn’t get back in it for a week perfect. Thank you mutiney house we will definitely be back

  • "We have just returned from this property."

    It was clean, spacious (enough for our family of 7), in a perfect location with a gorgeous view. We went crabbing every night with the little ones and could walk to Weymouth beach within 15 minutes so the car was never used. Only downfall to this property was the back garden - it is a small paved alleyway that holds the bins and which next door overlooks. Also, don't expect to sleep in past 7.15 am as all recycling / garbage trucks, delivery vans, vans delivering kegs etc park right outside the 2 bedrooms which are located downstairs. However, despite the few niggles, it wouldn't put us off from staying here again.

The property

Mutiny House is located directly adjacent to the pretty picturesque old harbour at Weymouth, and close to the Brewers Quay.

It is a stone's throw from the popular Weymouth beach and town centre.

The property is a very good base to explore the area and surrounding Dorset Coast.

Accommodating up to seven guests in four bedrooms of which two boast having en-suites.

Accessed from the landing is a cloakroom and there’s a separate bathroom on the ground floor for your convenience. Being in the comfort of your armchair relax and watch the hustle and bustling scene of the Old Harbour with fishing boats and yachts passing under the old town bridge.

Nearby in Hope Square you will find a selection of restaurants, cafes and tea rooms.

The main sandy beach with its shallow waters is within easy walking distance or you may fancy taking the charming row boat ferry across the harbour to the beach directly.

As the coast always look a bit different from water, there are quite a few options for a boat cruise.

Explore the area by visiting the Isle of Portland popular with rock climbers, water sports enthusiasts and birdwatchers.

At the top of Portland is the popular Portland Bill lighthouse and Pulpit Rock.

Venture further East and you will be amazed by a stunning Durdle Door arch and Lulworth Cove.

Weymouth’s town centre with its variety of high street shops, cinema and ten pin bowling are just a short walk along the harbour and over the town bridge.

Within a five-minute walk you can reach wonderful Newton's Cove, a small sheltered beauty spot with rock pools ideal for children to explore and the adjacent Nothe Fort gardens; the perfect location for morning stroll and don’t forget to pack a picnic.

Mutiny house is a comfortable holiday home for all to enjoy with harbour views from the property.

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!
