  • "Beautiful, well equipped and comfortable cottage."

    Lovely location, and felt very safe.

    Reviewed by DianneJun 2022

  • "We love this location and the cottage itself was very comfortable."

    However, staying in bed past 5am in the main bedroom was difficult due to the sky light not having a blind to pull down and so adding this would be a major improvement. Our overall stay was enjoyable and we would return in the future.

  • "Holiday Cottage was lovely and very quiet surroundings considering we were only 5 minutes walk to the harbour, restaurants and pubs."

    Definitely recommended Sykes to our friends and already looking for next year. Unfortunately we forgot to write in the visitors book, but really enjoyed our week.

  • "This is the fourth holiday cottage we've had in Weymouth over the last 3 years and absolutely the best!"

    Extremely well equipped, two bathrooms that really worked, exceptionally clean and very tidy. The only (minor) issue was the sitting room sofa which transpired to be a set of 2-seater sofa bed plus a third seat and a chaise longue; the sofa bed bit was not altogether comfortable as a sofa.

  • "We loved staying at Rupert."

    It is such a home from home and so cosy. It is in a quiet location and in the part of Weymouth we like to be in. We had such a wonderful stay and parking which is such a bonus in Weymouth now.

  • "Lovely cottage, Ideal location, everything on the doorstep."

  • "Lovely property."

    Great to have private safe parking. It is situated very close to the coastal path and it was lovely to be so close to the harbour, Weymouth and Newton’s Cove. The only downside to being so close to the harbour was the noise from the people returning back home at night from the pub. The neighbours were also a little noisy. The small bedroom backed on to their bedroom and the TV in their room was quite loud at night. We also felt a bit like we were in a goldfish bowl because the people opposite were outside smoking quite a bit.

  • "Just a little niggle no blind in the main bedroom for the skylight."

    Everything else was excellent.

  • "Lovely location right by the Harbour with a selection of bars and restaurants close at hand."

    Having secure onsite parking is a real bonus, you can literally lock up and walk everywhere, you will find stops for the Land train and boat trips close by on the quay. The cottage is ideal for a family of four, clean with plenty of bed linen and towels. A great fully equipped kitchen with a wide range of crockery and utensils, especially useful to have a dishwasher and washer dryer. Very informative property guide and an array of leaflets for local attractions. Easy process for us to check in and out.

  • "Overall very pleased with property."

    Only two criticisms, firstly was that having recently fitted new carpets the doors were difficult to open as the bottoms had not been eased. Also there are no blinds fitted in the velux windows and waking us very early in the morning.

  • "We had to wait a whole year to complete our plans for our visit but it was well worth the wait, the property was excellent (as all our Sykes rentals have been over the years) The area was both interesting and quite quiet, plenty to do and good restaurants close by."

    Would definitely recommend.

    Reviewed by YvonneMay 2021

  • "Had a very lovely stay, cottage well furnished and nicely decorated and comfortable."

    Just a small point to mention, in main bedroom it would be good to have a blind on roof velux window as we were woken very early by the light coming in. Just a small point really.

  • "Nice cottage, very close to harbour shops and Resturants."

  • "Very well equipped cottage with everything we needed, even a hairdryer which was a surprise!"

    Great to have secure parking and a very easy walk to the harbour, shops and beach. Welcome Pack had 'tablets' which we assumed were for the washing machine, although no tablets for the dishwasher? but other than that everything was lovely. We would go back.

    Reviewed by AllisonSep 2020

  • "Location of Rupert is excellent with just a short walk to both the old quay and coastal path."

    The cottage is probably one of the cleanest self-catering properties we have visited, with a very good compact layout. My only suggestion would be to have the windows cleaned outside. We particularly liked the secure undercover parking for our motorcycle. We booked this 3 night stay at very short notice and I was very impressed with Charlie, a very polite member of staff at the Sykes office, who dealt with the arrangements so efficiently and promptly and made the whole process very easy.

  • "The cottage is comfortable with a lot of small, thoughtful extras."

    The bed was of a good size and comfortable. The WiFi worked perfectly and the kitchen was well equipped. The off road parking was an extra bonus. The cottage was near the town and Newton’s cove, we didn’t need to use the car during our stay.

  • "Seven years ago we stayed in the same cottage and liked it so this year we decided to go again."

    Lovely cottage, lovely position, so safe.Three loos although there were only the 2 of us so often we need our one loo at the same time.Ridiculous. I would also like to add that Oct 5th was our 56th Wedding Anniversary. The only down side was the weather unfortunately,that is the reason we came home a day early.

  • "Lovely gated property, which are converted shire horse stables done to a very high standard with under cover parking for one car , we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in this cottage."

  • "Extremely well presented and well equipped cottage, perfectly placed to be able to walk to the harbour and beach and the many shops and restaurants nearby."

    My only negative would be how light the bedrooms were! A skylight with no blind in the main bedroom and no blind and light curtains in the other bedroom meant a very early wake up call for us in the light summer mornings. If this could be remedied I would describe this cottage as perfect.

  • "We have stayed at this property several times and the standard of the cottage is just as high as our first stay."

    We had the best week ever in Weymouth this year due to the glorious weather. The location is perfect and as we do a lot of walking it is always nice to know we are coming back to a comfortable clean cottage. It is also within walking distance of several great restaurants, Crustaceans and Enzo which we can recommend highly. Stayed July 2018.

  • "Rupert cottage is a charming little cottage within easy walking distance of the town and all it's amenities."

    We commented right from the start how clean it was. And, it's in a little gated community so very private, parking is not an issue as you get your own space. Everything you need has been provided, from the washer/dryer and dishwasher to an iron and ironing board (it's a decent iron too!). There was even dishwasher tablets and fairy liquid in the kitchen cupboard. Definitely a home from home!- Stayed July 2017.

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!
