  • "We have been using Sykes/Dream cottages for many years, staying at various accommodations in Weymouth."

    On this occasion we chose Sailors Watch. This is by far the best place we've stayed. It was the cleanist, largest, well equipped, and best location we've ever had. Sailors Watch is situated above another Sykes property. So after entering a communal door downstairs, you have to go up a set of steps to reach it. The large fully equipped kitchen diner greets you on entry,with tea, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits, along with milk in fridge.The living area overlooks the bridge and harbour, a lovely view. There are 2 bathrooms with welcome packs in each, including shampoo, conditioner, soap etc. 2 large bedrooms, and a bedroom with 2 single beds. Beds are very comfortable.Note to everyone staying, the heating control is on top of the fridge, which we only found after contacting the office. A strange place to put it! We had a wonderful stay at this property, and will hopefully book again for next year.

  • "The decor of the cottage was lovely and the location perfect."

    We loved the cottage as it was contemporary but with some quirky features. The cottage was very well equipped - we all appreciated the welcome box with teas and tasty biscuits. It was very relaxing just to sit and watch the boats go by. Lots of cafes and restaurants in walking distance which was great. We were able to go on several walks, to the fort and to a castle, plus just walking around the lively harbour was enjoyable. My son loved the arcades near the beach, which was a 15 minute walk away. There are boat trips you can do close to the cottage. My son and I went on one and managed to see the resident dolphins William and Harry. It is a short walk over the bridge into Weymouth town centre which has all the shops you would need plus some independent shops. We could not have asked for more, except that we all wanted to stay longer.

  • "Great holiday location and fabulous place."

    Only suggestion is that it would be useful to have contact details with the owner beforehand so we could warn them that we would not be arriving on the Friday rather than going through the (understandably busy at the moment) Sykes number.

  • "We had a lovely family holiday at Sailor s Watch."

    It was located in an ideal area in Weymouth. We could walk to the restaurants in 5 minutes which was ideal. The cottage was spacious, well equipped and full of character. We would recommend this property if you want to visit Weymouth and have all the amenities on your door step.

  • "Enjoyed an amazing weeks stay in Sailor’s Watch."

    Great views over the harbour, which we absolutely enjoyed watching the comings and goings of. Property stylishly decorated, comfortable and with all amenities catered for. Thanks Annie for letting us stay, we thoroughly enjoyed our time. Great location for all local amenities, great local pubs and eateries, which we tried to visit most of them during our stay. .

  • "Everything about this holiday was perfect."

    The website was easy to navigate, we had lots of choice and we managed to find a cottage that suited our needs perfectly. Sykes kept us updated about coronavirus risks without unduly worrying us which was ace. The cottage itself was spotlessly clean giving us every confidence in our choice. The cottage was also extremely well fitted out with everything we needed for a great weeks holiday. We found it to be very dog friendly with outside areas for him to run and lie in - he loved it too ! The parking permit was an added bonus, we managed to park outside the cottage every day (although it was just out of season) but there were also plenty of permitted areas within walking distance of the cottage. Due to coronavirus the owners are, understandably, advised not to visit tenants in person but they did contact us by text message to check if everything was ok which was very much appreciated, they seem very friendly are caring people. We have been on many cottage breaks in the UK and we both agreed this was the best we have ever stayed in. We would highly recommend this cottage and are looking to go back ourselves if we can.

  • "Fantastic property, home from home, in a brilliant location within easy walking distance of facilities of Weymouth."

    Very well equipped and spotlessly clean and cosy. Excellent uninterrupted views of the harbour. Quite happy to sit in the window watching the world go by and the town bridge opening to allow the boats to pass through. Although it was January still plenty to see and do in the area with shops, pubs and restaurants on the doorstep, many dog friendly. Despite being situated on quite a busy road into town didn't notice traffic noise and very quiet during the night too. Parking directly outside not a problem with the permit so that was a major bonus. Annie the owner went over and above to make our holiday as comfortable and stress free as possible. We hope to return next year. Just brilliant!! Andrea & Steve Chidgey & Angus

  • "Fantastic family holiday at Sailors Watch."

    Welcome pack completely unexpected but very thoughtful ready for an important cup of tea after a tiring journey. Lovely views overlooking the marina and watching the rising of the bridge. Ideal location for amenities. There was nothing that was overlooked in welcome pack which also included the milk in the fridge. Everything was thought of including towels .

  • "Great location and we were able to park directly outside on most days."

    On other occasions we were only a couple of minutes walk away. Tssteful, high quality decor. Quirky layout and much larger than expected. An ideal holiday base. Not the quietest location, but then you are in the midst of everything. The convenience and boat/people-watching over the harbour are the pay off. We would definitely return. Thank you.
