  • "Had a wonderful stay at Quay Cottage."

    A spacious and comfortable place to stay which was very well equipped and so convenient to Weymouth town, beautiful walks and local facilities. Thank you!

  • "A very enjoyable stay at quay cottage, very well equipped, clean & in a good location, lots of toys, books & DVDs for my two grandchildren to enjoy."

    If you are not travelling by car the public transport is excellent we went to lyme Regis for the day & it's very good value , just one mention I asked Sykes did the cottage have a hairdryer they said no but in fact it has two . We were lucky with the weather and had a great holiday, thank you

  • "Excellent property."

    Ideal location as I prefer that side of the harbour. Excellent pubs just a few minutes walk away and Weymouth still has proper pubs unlike many places. Parking OK also. Beds and bedding very good quality. Very comfortable and also very quiet.

    Thank you for your kind review. Glad you appreciated the house and its location - we think it’s in a sweet spot too! Property Owner

  • "Quay Cottage is a lovely place to stay."

    We have stayed here twice and would stay again. It is in the perfect location to make the most of Weymouth. Close to local shop, Chinese, and the lovely Chapelhay Tavern. It's five mins walk from town centre, beach, The Nothe Fort and Asda & about ten mins to station. Beds are comfy and the shower is fantastic.

    Thank you for choosing to stay with us again. Glad you love both the house and Weymouth itself. Have just put in a new wireless speaker gadget in the lounge so there will be a new ‘toy’ to play with next time. Property Owner

  • "We have been to Weymouth many times and came for Christmas with our 14 and 11 year olds in Dec 2023."

    The cottage was a perfect base for our holiday. The cottage was immaculate, the kitchen spacious with all we needed to cook Christmas dinner, the bedrooms were incredibly comfortable and the location was ideal for easy walks to the harbour and other attractions.

    Many thanks for your kind words. Glad you chose us for your special Christmas stay and that you had a fabulous time. We’d love to welcome you back again when you are next in UK. Property Owner

  • "An excellent property in an ideal location."

    Parking is a problem but we did manage to park very near to the cottage. The facilities are excellent and the rooms are spacious and very comfortable. We've had a lovely stay. Thank you.

    Glad you really enjoyed your time at Quay Cottage. On parking it’s a shame the council stopped parking permits 2 seasons ago which would’ve helped but nonetheless will update guest book this winter with some tips re nearby places to park. Property Owner

  • "We were pleasantly surprised when entering the house."

    It’s spacious and has everything that you could possibly want. A pretty little courtyard which we didn’t get to enjoy because of the weather. Not far to walk to town and beach. One little niggle, the bathroom door wouldn’t close without some force, so we didn’t shut it, wasn’t really a problem for us. Parking was a bit of a problem, couldn’t always park by the house. Even so we would definitely recommend staying here.

    Glad you enjoyed your stay and found the area conveniently located. Will look into the door- being wooden the doors do expand/contract somewhat seasonally. Property Owner

  • "Property was exactly as described and the layout and presentation was excellent."

    Superbly located on the quiet side of the town but a 5 minute walk to the bridge into the mail town and access to buses going all over Dorset. A local Londis a 3 minute walk away stocked everything needed. And Hope square offered the Red Lion for food and drinks with other restaurants near bye.

    Thank you for your kind comments. Glad you had a fab time. We love the location too - quiet yet a stones throw away from the centre. The Londis is indeed super convenient as you found out. Hope to see you again. Property Owner

    The cottage is absolutely perfect for us. A bedroom each and plenty of living space. So close to the harbour, the town, the station and wonderful walks along the beach. Although there is no on site parking, we had no problem finding a parking space on the road nearby. This was our second time at Quay Cottage and would definitely come again.

  • "Amazing property."

    Everything you could possibly need. Great set up for children. Loved the play room and stair gates and having child friendly plates and cutlery was a massive bonus. So close to town and all amenities could be reached within 5-10 min walk. Managed to park outside the property most days but could become expensive if needed to use the car park. Fantastic will be booking again for sure.

  • "The cottage provided a comfortable stay."

    Excellent self catering facilities with excellent array of kitchen utensils. We were aware very quickly of a quantity of black hairs throughout the property. Especially noticeable on the tiles, sink and inside cupboards in the kitchen, the stool in the bathroom and throughout our stay we kept finding them. We did wonder if they were cat hairs but we specifically chose the property as it was a no pets property, due to my husband’s animal allergies so could not see how they could be cat hairs. After a good clean I seemed to clear the main offenders but this did make us feel uncomfortable and concerned at the level of cleanliness at the property and if in fact pets had been present in previous stays. With a little more attention to detail on cleaning this would easily be 5 stars for us as everything else was such a high standard. The accommodation size is excellent. The amenities are excellent. The double bed was very comfortable and after a clean up we had a very enjoyable stay. Parking permit was very welcome as the parking outside the property is limited. We were very impressed with Sykes Cottages reservations team.

  • "Brilliant find!"

    Quay Cottage is an amazing property - the photos didn’t do it justice! It was beautifully decorated & furnished, spotlessly clean, and very comfortable. Everything you could possibly ever need was in the kitchen, and it was refreshing to have nice glasses in a holiday house too ;) The location was great - perfect for exploring the area, but also quiet. The parking permit was a brilliant option to have, although we lucked out every day and managed to park right outside. We will definitely stay here again. The service and communication from Dream Cottages (Ian) was excellent too.

    Glad you had a lovely stay and loved the property. We think its a sweet spot too in terms of close proximity and tranquility. Property Owner

    Underneath the radiators on the window sills cobwebs!

We were so lucky with the weather and the garden space was a perfect little suntrap all day. The parking permit meant we didn't need to worry about our car all week or the stress of driving as we used the train and bus to go on our adventures!!

    Great location. On a quiet street, only a few minutes walk down the hill to the beautiful harbour and under 15 minutes walk through the shops to the beach. House is larger than it looks from the outside with fresh decor, well resourced kitchen, nice bathroom and comfy beds. Parking is in short supply on the street but ok for dropping off luggage etc. We then used the parking permit provided for nearby car parks in Nothe Gardens which was a good alternative. Overall perfect house for our family holiday.

    Position of Cottage being above the Harbour ( lovely views from the Loft) means the road up is steep & may be unsuitable for people with walking difficulties, not a problem for us, good for working of the fish & chips !

  • "Very little to fault with it: comfortable, clean, very good location (on the borderline between the fun part of Weymouth and a rather undesirable area) and very easy to live in."

    The only minor issues were: 1) For a house of five people, there really needs to be a spare key. 2) The kitchen was very well equipped but a couple of pans might need replacing. 3) The welcome pack is not clear about what guests should do with recycling.

    Glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for your notes and they have been followed up on. Have added a spare key, pans and oven trays we check and replace as required annually. Recycling is more awkward in Weymouth than many other areas - some options in the book are noted and emerging options will be added as the book is renewed annually but there is no easy trade waste option for recycling.
