    The accomodation was fantastic in everyway - ultra modern, ultra clean and ultra comfortable = very hard to beat.

  • "Fantastic location, home from home."

    Only gripes were, middle bedroom needs new mattress, could feel springs. Also needs lock on middle en-suite on door to living room, as this is actually en suite for middle room. Hard to cook for 8 as only had 1 wire rack in oven. A tad noisy (party goers) at night and early morning (bin collection). You could hear every footstep from upstairs apartment. We had to remind ourselves we chose this location. Would still return though.

    Hello Angela. Thank you for your lovely feedback. I will be looking at these particular areas that you have mentioned inside the apartment and see whether we can make any alterations or improvements ready for the future guests. I hope that the naturally busy working Harbour life didn't spoil your stay much. All the very best from Nikki and the team. Property Owner

    Three generations had the most wonderful Christmas at Old Coastguard Apartment 3. Great communication from the owner, who made us feel very welcome. Apartment was equipped with everything we needed & more, spotlessly clean, with beautiful furniture & fittings. Views were amazing. So sad to leave but the memories will be with us forever!

    The apartment is really lovely with everything you need and what i call proper beds in Cornwall most cottages have low wooden cheap beds but in this apartment everything is top of the range furnishings it is in a beautiful position right alongside the Harbour with a very good cafe underneath which is perfect for breakfast or lunch But you also have some very nice pubs and restaurants just alongside the harbour which you are able to walk to

  • "We all loved our stay at the Old Coastguard 2 apartment."

    Our party consisted of two families equalling 4 adults and 4 children. We found we had enough space, there were no stairs (in the actual apartment) for me to worry about with my toddler, it was nice to have 3 bathrooms, and everything was beautifully done and spotlessly clean. The apartment was well located with short walks to both the beach and the town, and had beautiful views across the water. We've already booked again for next year.

    It feels like top notch hotel accommodation because the bedrooms and en-suites are so spacious and luxurious. The living room and kitchen are huge with beautiful views of the harbour and everything was spotless when we arrived. We all parked in the Pavillion car park which had spaces and is in easy reach. Nikki who looks after the apartments and cafe is very helpful and friendly. Everything runs smoothly with no fuss. We had a great time-thank you.

  • "One of the first thoughts that we had when we entered this apartment was, is there anywhere in Weymouth with a better location and presented to the very high standard."

    We came to to the conclusion that this must be the best accommodation that Weymouth can offer. The apartment is large, spacious, light and has great views to watch the world go by. The furnishings are simple modern and practicable. We had four adults and two young children 5 & 6 in our group the kids got the largest bedroom with a huge family bathroom consisting of a large shower and standalone bath. The two other rooms were both large with very good sized en-suites. Ultimately everyone could find their own space. The kitchen has all the equipment you need. The only negative that i can find with this booking is that the on street parking permit is a waste of time, it would make more sense to have a permit for the Pavilion car park; knowing what the parking is like at Weymouth, i purchased directly with the council two permits for the week at a cost of £38 each, we parked all week in the Pavilion car park with no problems.

  • "Despite being many weeks into Covid 19, the level of customer service from Sykes is at best dreadful."

    Repeated automated emails that cannot be responded to and when a person does send an email the advice is so narrow it requires further comms which take further weeks to progress. We have tried on no less than 6 occasions for up to 30 minutes to get through via phone, to no avail. I accept (and are sure the response will state) these are unprecedented times, however after 4 months the vast majority of other companies and industries have adjusted to the new world. I don’t see what value Sykes are adding to this process, a booking fee is the cost, but what do you bring? Moving forward I am looking for independent holiday homes to remove this wasted time and elongation of resolving issues (8 weeks down the line, still unresolved). In terms of the property and local ownership, this was excellent. Great location between harbour and beach, spacious rooms and a great view to watch the boats pass by. All controls were in place (within the property and by the local council around the harbour) and the manager was first class, warm, friendly and always on hand to address any small queries. This paradox in customer service reinforces my question, what do Sykes bring?

  • "This was our 4th consecutive year staying on the harbour and the third different property."

    This has been the best so far by a long way. I guess it being relatively new helps but to be fair but it's been furnished and finished to a high standard. If there is a niggle it's with limited parking in zone F as it can be tricky to find a spot whereas the permit on the other side of the harbour lets you park up on the Nothe etc. That for me was the only issue. The cafe on the ground floor run by Nikki and her staff is lovely. You get a discount and is well worth a visit. We all loved it and have booked it for 2020 already
