  • "We had a lovely stay in Reaver, very comfy and clean."

    The only thing we would say needs to be made aware of is the parking space as we really struggled to get our Ford Focus in the space provided. I would also say that within the property there are a few marks on the walls in various rooms that could just do with either a wipe down or a fresh coat of paint. Apart from that it was a lovely stay and we would use reaver again and recommend to those with smaller cars than us.

  • "We have visited Reaver several times and it never fails to please."

    We especially appreciate the parking and the proximity to the harbour along with the comfort and the fact it is very well equipped. Our only problem lay with the key box. We had no trouble opening it but we found it impossible to put the key back in and shut it, as did our neighbour. In the end we put the key through the letterbox of Dream cottages’ office, fortunately just round the corner.

  • "The Property was very clean and tidy."

    We had a minor glitch securing internet access as we did not realise until the following day that the internet modem had been switched off at the mains. So we did spend a few wasted hours on arrival trying to gain access to the web. So do check that it is switched on. The TV broke down two days during our stay but was quickly put right by the "Dream Cottage/Sykes" team almost immediately. So nothing but praise for all concerned there. Although there is private parking, we found it very tight and difficult to comfortably park the cars in the small space provided. The property occupant next door and I, were always moving cars to allow each other to get in and out of our vehicles. I/We genuinely saw no real reason why we could not just park right outside our property. Just one point for the attention of the Owner, and your team. The Duvets on all our beds were far far too heavy, and we did not always enjoy the best night's sleep as we had to keep throwing them off for us to cool down and then pulling them back on again. Even our Winter duvets at home are about half the weight of your duvets. On the whole, though, we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday there and would not hesitate to recommend this property to everyone.

    Having a designated parking spot was brilliant. Everything we needed was provided in the house, perfect for the 4 of us.

  • "On the whole the standard of accommodation was what we have come to expect over the years from Dream Cottages, very high."

    However the en-suite shower in the main bedroom would only heat up to Luke warm at best. Also the internet wasn’t working. I did advise you of both and it was my choice to live with the shower problem for our stay, and you did fix the internet problem very quickly. Only other negative comment was that if you were watching tv via the WiFi if you walked anywhere near the WiFi box the signal was blocked and the tv returned to the free view sign on screen. Very annoying as we found to maintain a signal to the tv we had to keep the living room door open which didn’t help to keep the room warm. These are minor niggles but do need sorting out. We still enjoyed our stay and will book again through a Dream Cottages over the coming year.

  • "Property itself was lovely and would definatly stay here again although the only issue we had was that we cannot get in now until 5pm due due the properties having to have a deeper clean due to COVID - on the surface it was great but skirting boards were very dusty and tops of picture frames also."

    I feel this should be done and the property should be completely 100% clean.

  • "Lovely cottage, well located, although parking is tight and awkward."

    Reaver is a lovely cottage, very bright and clean, well-maintained and with almost everything you could need. We found the wi-fi completely un-useable, but we always travel with our own wi-fi hotspot as we need reliable, speedy internet connection for checking in with work. My husband needed to work 1.5 days of our holiday, and if we'd relied on Reaver's wi-fi, it would have been a problem. It was lovely to have two full bathrooms, plus the cloakroom downstairs, and all were very clean. Plenty of towels provided, and small cakes of soap for each bathroom sink. Lots of hot water, and good pressure in the showers. Beds were very comfortable, the duvets in the twin bedroom were cosier than that in the main bedroom, which suited us as I need a cooler bed to have a good sleep, while my husband needs a warmer bed. Kitchen is very well kitted out, aside from needing a much better tin opener (there are two, and neither worked very well). Be aware that in order to shut the fridge completely, it needs to make a sort of squeaky, friction noise, as the door is not completely aligned - not an issue, but if you forget, the fridge may be left a bit ajar. Television is Freeview, but appears to have some of the streaming services as well (we did not use any of those). There is a small wooden deck outside the front door, and 2 new chairs with cushions and table were delivered during our stay - lovely and comfortable for sitting outside in the sun. The parking is great to have, but it is very tight and awkward - the distance between the terrace of houses and the garage area makes the manoeuvring a bit tricky. If you are not comfortable or confident with parking in quite limited space, or you have a big car, Reaver's parking space might be a challenge for you. For us, we hadn't planned to use the car more than once, and in the end we arrived, parked, and didn't move the car until we left again, so it was okay. The parking space has a pillar to work around, and bins at the back. We like this area of Weymouth to stay in, and Reaver's specific location was great - out the pedestrian gate through the car park to Hope Square in about 2 minutes, or to the coastal walks starting at Newton's Cove in even less. Ideal for getting to all of Weymouth's shops, attractions, and drinking/dining options on foot, so very relaxing to not have to be driving all the while.

  • "The location of Reaver in the old area of Weymouth is a real delight, as well as the security and parking on the site."

    The property is warm and everything we needed was supplied, with all decor, furnishings and kitchen needs in excellent condition. A relaxed comfortable atmosphere. It was lovely to be in a mews that had been part of the local history, as well as easy walking to all places of interest. Direct and easy connection with the main roads through and out of town was a bonus. Just a small point of surprise was the very lightweight cover on the double bed, I do think a reserve extra throw should be supplied. I used my own extra blanket. Also some better explanation in use of technology controls for the TV etc, along with a tourist town map leaflet would be a welcome addition. We had a delightful stay and hope to book again in the future, it's a great place for days out into beautiful Dorset.

On the maintenance front the extract fan in the cloakroom is quite noisy and a couple of the dining room chairs need their legs to be tightened (requires an allen key). Please do not consider this to be in any way a complaint, it is simply hopefully helpful comment.

  • "This was our fourth visit to Reaver and we particularly like the idea of being in a gated community for privacy."

    Whilst there is a designated parking space in double bays it can be a bit tight if two large cars are using the bay.. I know our next door neighbour found that difficult this time. renovation works were going on in the house next door which caused noise, banging, sawing and drilling, even on Bank holiday Monday so we were awakened quite early, well early for someone on holiday that is! this went on for most of the week with tradesmen in and out and commercial vehicles parked outside both theirs and our accommodation. We did lodge a complaint and whilst not expected we did receive some compensation for the inconvenience caused. All things considered and for the convenient location of Reaver we would consider re-booking again.

  • "We were pleased with the cottage but felt that the furnishings, e."

    G. bedding and bath towels etc needing updating. The bed coverings were very worn and there was even a tear in the sheets. The quilts very lightweight and were not warm enough on cold nights. The bathroom towels were worn quite thin and actually stained in places. We just felt it was well worn and could have done with a makeover. Was disappointed with the lack of extras. Although there was some tea and coffee on arrival it would have been nice to have been left some milk so we could have had a cup of tea after our journey before we could get some shopping in. On the whole it is a very nice cottage situated in a secure gated site, but just felt it lacked the niceties and little extras that we have found in other rental properties we have stayed at.

  • "We enjoyed our stay in Reaver."

    The accomadation was very nice quality and made excellent use of the size of the property. Three toilets in a two bed was very useful. The only slight negative was the plaster board walls between properties as they were once I believe stables and obviously had no upstairs in the distant past. It meant music and loud talking could be heard through the wall on occasion. A pair of scissors in the kitchen and a descent tin opener would be a small improvement to an otherwise excellent property in a fantastic location the right side of Weymouth high street.

About the location


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!
