  • "Whilst we love the location, parking, and the house generally."

    Our stay was sadly really affected by multiple building works going on around the house. The house next door is being renovated which started around 8am each day with drilling and sawing, then there are 2 building sites on two sides of the property (the old brewers quay and the other I think was a car park) which also had banging drilling and shouting going on from even earlier. The property would really benefit from double glazing. Also taxi drivers sit on the benches across the road shouting from 6am when cruise ships are arriving to pick up passengers which also woke us up multiple times.

  • "The property is well equipped, well furnished and had everything needed."

    The windows were filthy and had not been cleaned for a long time - perhaps due to being in the midst of a building site. The en suite bathroom had a damp odour and would benefit from some fresh air circulating. We did not use it. The allocated parking space had been taken by someone else when we arrived. The rubbish stored in the parking space, old tyres, planks of wood with nails protruding and general debris was tidied up during the week, but had not been completely removed. The view from the window into the courtyard at the front was of dustbins and building works.

  • "What a lovely cottage."

    Close to the harbour and shops with safe parking, a perfect position. The cottage is comfortably furnished with everything anyone would need for a perfect holiday, and spotless throughout, with a few welcoming homely touches, like tea, coffee and biscuits. Whenever we return to Weymouth we will certainly check if Rupert cottage is free.

  • "This property is in a great location, walking distance into the town."

    Great places to eat and a fabulous Vegetarian cafe. Parking in a secure place is also an added bonus. If I could recommend that the owners purchase some new towels the ones we had were past their best. We would stay again.

  • "Rupert Cottage was a wonderful place to stay."

    It was perfectly situated close to the Harbour for all the cafes ,bars and restaurants. It was exceptionally clean and all the beds were comfortable. Having the stereo system was lovely and the living space and L shaped sofa made evenings in like a home from home. We enjoyed and have already booked again for next year! We highly recommend this little gem .

    Accommodation as listed perfectly comfortable. Ideal location, in walking distance to the town and beach. Lots in the local area for walks and days out for adults and children. Bonus is secure parking.

  • "We had a super time based at Rupert Cottage."

    It is so conveniently situated for walking everywhere. The cottage was clean and very comfortable. Plenty of crockery and cutlery so could use dishwasher without running out of equipment. Downstairs WC as well as 2 bathrooms upstairs - great little cottage and would highly recommend. Weymouth is a beautiful town and many good places to visit within reasonable distance. Great bus services too.

  • "This was our third stay at Rupert Cottage and we decided not to go back."

    It is clean on the surface a deep clean and/or replacement of some things are needed. The bedding and living room furniture (although clean sheets) smelt of perspiration. The sofa and chair are particularly smelly as well as uncomfortable. Unhappy with the service; they should have come in and changed the bedding after one week and done a mini clean. Standards have certainly dropped since they sold out to the current holiday letters.

  • "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.

    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.

  • "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.

  • "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.

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

  • "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.

    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.

    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 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!

Note: Guests are required to bring their own cot linen.
