"Splendid time,very nice apartment,welcome box very welcome ,thank you."
"Good general accommodation."
Close to the old harbour and Newton's Cove. Very good internet connection and very good state-of-the-art TV. Own covered parking place is also a good point. ------------------------------------------- It was the second time we've stayed here and I mentioned it before - the bannister does not go all the way to the top of the stairs, it stops at the first corner, not good, it is a safety concern.
Thank you for your feedback. We had been waiting for a carpenter to put in the extra piece of banister, and it is not always easy to fit these jobs in on the one day of a changeover so apologise it was not in place in time for your second visit. However, we are pleased to say that it has now been done, so if you do decide to stay at Nuke again, it will be there ready for you. Best wishes , the Owners Property Owner
"It's the second time we have stayed at Nuke,it's a lovely cottage and being only two of us there was plenty of space."
Its well appointed, but a few minor niggles are the size of the mugs/cups they are huge and the size of the frying pan,again huge and for two totally impractical.Also Freezer needed defrosting it was difficult to open any of the drawers due to ice.As I say it would not put us off renting again but minor niggles.Its a perfect location , parking can be a little tight but very handy opposite the front door.An ideal cottage to stay at any time of the year.
"Nice place to stay close to all amenities with a parking space , bonus points for that as parking in general is expensive there ."
The area is being revamped with building work in progress in numerous buildings close by. But this didn’t hamper our stay , we had a lovely time there lots of walking and cycling which we found the easiest to get around.
"We really enjoyed our holiday and staying at Nuke made it perfect, it was well equipped and very clean and spacious."
We would definitely recommend this property as it is in a gated courtyard with an undercover allocated parking space, the location was situated close to the Harbour and Newtons Cove.
"Nuke is a comfortable well equipped cottage in a good location."
A couple of small issues were sorted swiftly. Communication from Sykes was excellent.
Very clean and facilities spot on. Close to the quay and local pubs and entertainment. Gorgeous staying the west side of Weymouth with all the beautiful coves and scenery.
"Everything was perfect."
This is the second time we have stayed in this cottage and think it is the best. It is in a secure area with it's own undercover parking , it is within walking distance to the harbour, shops and beaches. Dreams, just around the corner were excellent, on our way out we reported a wobbly toilet seat and it was mended by the time we got back. The only thing that would stop us going back is our age, we fiound the long journey tiring.
"Great cottage in a wonderful location, Perfect for a stay in Dorset."
A lovely welcome touch of milk in fridge and a welcome pack was in the cottage upon arrival . Perfect in every way , thank you
"Great stay, fantastic location close to the harbour with restaurants and bars."
Well equipped property. Secure parking , Will deffently stay again. Phil & Carol
"Loved staying at Nuke."
It is a lovely cottage in a very good location with parking. The washing machine didn't work but this was swiftly dealt with by a brilliant lady called Jane at sykes cottages. We had terrible weather during our stay so spent a lot more time in the cottage than expected but it is warm, cosy and comfortable...a real home from home. We loved it. ❤️
"The Nuke is in an excellent location with safe parking."
The cottage is well equipped, comfortable and clean. The welcome pack was of a v high quality... We would recommend.
"The cottage was lovely in a good location ."
Though lack of privacy The beds and sofa were extremely Uncomfortable so much so we had to go out and spend £82 on an air bed for better comfort We also had to go and buy tools as the ironing board fell to pieces so we fixed it . Totally not worth £1000 per week when so uncomfortable and unable to sleep and having to fix things The downstairs window was easy to open but very hard to shut as the handle was just on the window sil rather than fixed to the window Sorry - about this review but we feel it really was not value for money . We go to weymouth every Year . The good points were the parking and The shower
Owner response - thank you for your feedback, with regards to the points you have raised, Nuke is located in a private gated mews development of 8 properties in total, it has three other properties to the right of it that are also holiday lets that guests could walk past Nuke to get to. Due to the infrequency of people potentially walking past, we did not think it necessary to add net/voile curtains to the lounge windows but will continue to monitor guest feedback and review this if others think it is necessary. The sofa was purchased brand new from DFS and is less than 5 years old. Similarly the beds were also bought with guest comfort in mind and having slept in them ourselves as a family, found them to be very comfortable however again we will continue to monitor this. It was very good of you to fix the ironing board however this was not necessary, we would prefer guests to enjoy their holiday rather than spend their valuable time making repairs. The locally based agency (only a few minutes walk away) has the authority to repair or replace any inventory item that is missing, broken or in need of repair. The broken window handle has now been replaced. We hope your next stay, wherever it may be is a good one and thank you for booking Nuke. Property Owner
"Excellent location, easy 2 minute stroll to the harbour."
Beautiful decor throughout the cottage and great to have secure, gated parking. A few minor issues taken care of would make it perfect. The bath drains while you're sitting in it, the plug needs a new seal or something, as such this was unusable during our stay. The shower has great water pressure, but if on full the water goes in all directions, needs a new shower head. The oven took a very long time to cook anything, much longer than it should. The curtains in the main bedroom are not blackout so let all the light in from the carpark overnight. Overall, these are minor concerns and it wouldn't stop us staying again.
"The stairs need an extra handrail for the last four steps for people who like to hold on."
The extension lead needs to be longer so the hairdryer reaches the mirror in the main bedroom. Not enough hand towels if 4 guests are staying because you need 1 in cloakroom and 1 in kitchen. There was no bath mat in the bathroom.
"Perhaps get some fans in for the extreme heat we are having , luckily we packed our fan with us, that aside the property had everything you could need for a relaxing lovely holiday at NUKE ideal location close to Weymouth Harbour and added bonus of parking car behind secure gates."
"Fabulous property, Shame second bathroom only had bath not shower."
Could do with a tumble dryer. Had a slight problem with downstairs lol which they were great about and fixed same day. My biggest gripe is not being able to get in until 4pm, it’s nearly a day of your holiday. The prices are a tad excessive too.
"Another great stay at the Nuke."
"As usual Sykes came up trumps."
Lovely cottage with complete security and in a perfect location. Easy walking distance into Weymouth, two pubs a short walk away glad to see that Weymouth planners had the sense to keep the character of the area. I hope to return soon.
"Great location, easy access to main town and harbour area on flat level ground."
Secure parking. Beautiful cottage, very modern inside.
"Another lovely stay at the Nuke."
Everything you need, great pet free property for allergy sufferers like me. Location is perfect you can park the car and walk everywhere. Only negative the hot water tap in the kitchen sounds like air in pipes when used. Just needs to be checked. Will be back again.
"The property was excellent everything was clean tidy and comfortable."
Everything needed was there. Location was very good close to everything without the noise. Will recommend property. Thanks for a lovely time 10 out of 10.
"Nice cottage in a good location but would not use again or recommend."
The lack of any sort of Welcome Pack (not even a pint of milk or a tea bag) was very poor. I have never stayed anywhere where there hasn’t been some provisions for at least a warm drink in arrival supplied. Very unwelcoming and a very poor show on the owners and agency’s part.
We are glad you liked the property and are sorry to hear you would not stay again. Unfortunately, due to the covid situation at the time, the agency were not allowing any sort of welcome pack to be put in the property. We understand that as covid restrictions are now being lifted, those items are starting to be put back in the properties again. You are right, it is nice to be able to make a warm drink after a long journey, before unloading and unpacking. Property Owner
"Everything was great."
The only criticism was that the windows were very dirty, every window you looked out of made you very aware of how dirty they were. Apart from that we were very happy and would be very happy to return.
"Happy with accommodation, lovely holiday thank you"
"Dream-Cottages team located in Weymouth are wonderful ."
Nuke cottage is so beautiful every comfort is catered for. Much larger inside than you would think. Love its a Friday Start too. We could park behind gates not worry about the car. We have booked up NUKE cottage for next July 2022 as loved it so much. Thank you NUKE owners and Dream Team. Kind regards as always Mr & Mrs Brindley.
"Fabulous property in excellent location."
Nuke was very clean, light & airy with smart decor. Sofas and beds were very comfortable and it was generally well equipped. Wi-Fi worked fine for us. The bathrooms were contemporary and the en-suite shower hot & powerful plus the towels were bright white, large and fluffy. The only thing it lacked was a shelf for shampoo etc in the shower. The main bedroom is especially lovely and looked newly decorated. Private secure parking is a valuable bonus, the spaces are a little tight even for our mini but everyone in the mews managed ok. It would be hard to better the location just a few minutes flat walk to Hope square and the lovely harbour. Just one observation there was no welcome pack so if you want a cuppa on arrival make sure you take supplies with you ! Highly recommended we would certainly choose this property again.
"Superb cottage in an excellent location."
Communication from Dream Cottages was excellent from booking right through to departure, with handy local office and contact details in case of problems.
"Cottage was just as described , the location is within 5 minutes of the harbour without the noise and crowds ,"
"Guests need to know that if on foot there is a side gate tucked away near the washing lines that you can use."
This has a digilock with the same code as drive gates. Lovely property everything you need.
"Great cottage in an amazing location."
Will definitely go back, Sykes as usual exceeding expectations
"Great location, cottage very clean and tidy our 2nd time staying at the Nuke, ..."
Great location, cottage very clean and tidy our 2nd time staying at the Nuke, won’t be our last hoping to return next year
"Wi fi poor Downstairs WC difficult to flush En suite water pressure poor (hot)"
Thank you for your valuable feedback. The owner takes all feedback on board and he has now installed fibre broadband. We look forward to welcoming you back to Dream Cottages. Property Owner
"This was the best cottage we have rented, it was beautifully decorated and furnished and very clean."
All the appliances were good quality and easy to use. The private parking was a really good bonus. It is so close to everything, I loved walking down to Newton cove, especially with the cruise ships, anchored in the bay. We had 2 weeks of perfect weather, so it was one of our best holidays, and good fish and chips.
"We were slightly apprehensive about leaving our little covid free bubble at home and venture on holiday this year but I'm so glad we did."
The cottage was absolutely spotless, it looked like we were the first people to ever visit. It is in a fantastic location, 2 minutes away from the beautiful Newtons Cove and just around the corner from the harbour but far enough away not to hear any of the hussle and bustle. Just a short walk over the bridge took us to town or to the beach. The decor was lovely, beds were really comfortable and there was everything you could possibly need in the cupboards. The gated access and parking space were great as there were no worries about leaving the car, or moving it and losing your space. An ideal base to explore the local area as well as the rest of Dorset. We loved it so much we've already booked to come back again next year.
"Although Nuke offers free WiFi it was extremely slow, apart from that no issues and property was beautiful."
Thank you for your valuable feedback. The owner takes all feedback on board and he has now installed fibre broadband. We look forward to welcoming you back to Dream Cottages soon. Property Owner
"This cottage is in a really good location to access pubs, restaurants, old harbour and shops."
It would also be brilliant for anyone who wants to set off walking along the coast. The town of Weymouth has all you need - shops, cinema, restaurants, pubs, food take-aways and then sandy beach and masses of interesting places to visit close by. The cottage was clean, contemporary and warm, with the bonus of a downstairs cloakroom too. We loved it and are determined to return before too long. The only negative is- the shower has little power and the bathroom has a tiny corner bath, impossible to lie down and enjoy a hot bath, particularly as the hot water runs out with a only a few inches in the bath - not good!
"Teething problems with this relatively new let."
..WIFI connection depends on next door router and at best signal in Nuke was fair to weak and mostly unusable except from the kitchen area which is closer to the router. I understand from the owner that a booster is to be fitted to the router in Reeva! ..I needed the access for business purposes so used local facilities in cafes etc. the heating system twice required attention from a local representative in the office at Hope square but was working by the time we left.
"Nuke is a beautiful house , all of the rooms are decorated to a high standard and the furnishings are good ."
We spent an enjoyable 2 weeks there . The en suite and seperate bathroom were very useful . However the place was let down by some niggling attention to detail. Firstly the kitchen has a microwave and dishwasher but all of the crockery had labels on saying they were not microwave or dishwasher safe ! Secondly the internet connection is very poor and mostly unusable so having a smart TV in the main bedroom to watch netflix/on demand is pointless . I contacted Dream Cottages to enquire/complain about the internet access , they contacted the owner who said that it was standard broadband. If I was paying for broadband where the speed varied between 0.5 mbps and 9 mbps ( mostly 0.2 mbps to 1.00 mbps ) then I would be asking questions of the provider. I couldn't see a router in the property so maybe the broadband service is a shared connection and is only usable if nobody else in the adjoining properties is using the service. Thirdly as we were resident for 2 weeks we found a note in the kitchen advising that a linen change and property refresh would be carried out on the Saturday of the 2nd week . We were asked to leave the key in the key-box. We did this and upon returning found that the linen change and refresh had not happened . I went round to the Dream Cottages office , it transpired that as the property was a Friday to Friday let that the refresh should have been done on the Friday but as we hadn't left the key it couldn't be done . We were given a choice of having the towels/linen replacements dropped off within the hour if we wanted to change the bedding ourselves or wait until the Monday to have the linen change and full refresh . We opted for the do it yourself option. A small issue was the velux windows in three of the rooms , the blinds were very difficult to close/open and there was no advice in the welcome book on how to use them .These niggles did have an effect on our overall enjoyment of the stay .

Previously providing the stables for the brewery horses in Weymouth, Nuke and it's surrounding properties have now been renovated into pretty mews-style houses, ideal for a holiday getaway with your loved ones.
The traditional tone is set with a wonderful stable front door, from which you enter into the modern open-plan dining and living room area, that is great for relaxing in front of the TV after a busy day exploring Weymouth.
Going through to the kitchen, you will find it fully equipped with everything you need to create some delicious meals using the gas hob and electric oven, and why not soak up as much of the sun as possible by taking things outside and chilling on the front decking.
Upstairs are two delightfully bright bedrooms, the master having an en-suite, and the second being a cosy twin bedroom, with the family bathroom across the way containing a corner bath, fantastic for some pamper time.
Located in the Brewers Quay and harbour area of Weymouth, this mews house is less than five minutes' walk from Weymouth's historic harbourside, where you can enjoy fresh fish and chips as the boats float by.
Newton's Cove beach and the Nothe Gardens are both only a few minutes' walk away, so this is the ideal house for parking up the car in the secure parking, and getting around on foot.
Weymouth’s golden sand beach and shallow waters are around a 15-minute walk, or why not take a short row across the harbour in the row boat ferry.
No trip to the beach is complete without an ice cream and there are plenty of incredible local ice creams to try!
Nuke would suit a couple seeking a romantic seaside retreat or a small family wanting to have fun on the beaches.
