  • "The only drawback was the lack of a parking space."

    This may have been helped with the issue of a permit as there were a number of areas we could have parked that were permit holders only. However there is an area near to the cottage that accommodates a number of cars that another resident told us about and we were able to park there a couple of times but it’s not guaranteed. Other than that it’s s lovely cottage with plenty of room and is very close to everything you want to see and do.

  • "Seahorse cottage was more than we could hope for and was certainly a massive part of the holiday."

    The house was clean, spacious and as described. The stair are very steep and do require you to be careful on them. Only thing I would also recommend noting would be there is a whole floor for the owners personal belongings as well as some wardrobe space in the master bedroom being locked and used by the owner. The community was lovely and the neighbours made a massive impact on the holiday- was lovely coming back from a day out and being able to chat/have a drink with the community, of course there is no pressure to, but would highly recommend to really understand how family orientated the community is. Will be booking for next year!

  • "Fantastic location close to the old harbour, very handy for bars and restaurants."

    Loved walking the dog round Nothe. Only issue was lack of car parking which may put us off returning.

  • "Cleanliness acceptable."

    Nice modern décor. Good linen/towels. Many light bulbs not working. No shaver sockets (who doesn't have electric toothbrushes). Most toilet roll holders/towel holders wobbling. No welcome pack. Dreams Office is convenient to pop in and discuss issues (Dreams cottages Weymouth), great benefit of booking. Second bedroom would be better with option of 2 singles or a double (we know this before we booked, just saying). Lovely location, on road parking is 50 yards away its busy but can normally find a space.

    Not at all like the picture you are showing. Also the table and chairs outside could do with replacing didn’t use them.

    Couldn’t fault anything and would recommend both booking process, communication and property itself.

  • "It was home from home, a really lovely experience, I am looking at going to Sea Horse cottage again."

    Very modern, clean all mod cons, perfect for a small family, and if you don't want to go out you can stay home and just chill. Everything you need is within walking distance, and other areas such as Lulworth and Swanage are barely half and hours drive away. There is a lovely little garden for the dogs and a great conservatory for you to spend a sleepy afternoon in. You can walk to the bay of Weymouth daily with your pets and have a nice cup of coffee or tea or something stronger if you wish and have a leisurely walk back home. The beach is just across from the bay and the beaches are clean and perfect for you and your dogs in the dog only beach.

  • "The description was inaccurate."

    Due to this we would not have booked this property. Unfortunately it was too late to change when this inaccuracy came to light. I have had to call in regards to this several times with pretty much no return calls from Sykes at all. I have spent more than 4 hours waiting on the phone to date. I am currently still waiting for a call from a manager on my request for some 10 days now. In my experience with Sykes to date, this feedback is pointless and a waste of time as nobody will respond to this and I will have to continue to chase a call from a member of the management team. It is a shame because we have used Sykes several times in the past with no problems but the first time we have had an issue the customer service is nonexistent.

  • "This is a lovely cottage, spacious and makes excellent use of the space."

    It is well located for the harbour side where we took many boat trips, the beach and local shops and bars. We even managed to walk from the cottage to Portland! It took about an hour but it was a nice walk! We had a thoroughly good time! The only slight negative is the parking - there is no guaranteed parking and the road where the cottage is unfortunately isn't wide enough to park and allow other cars past. We did manage to find somewhere to park on a surrounding road which took a couple of attempts. We didn't dare move the car all week as parking did seem to be at a premium! Everything however was within walking distance so it wasn't really needed, although we had hoped to visit Bennetts Water Gardens, the Swannery at Abbotsbury and Exeter but we didn't wish to lose the parking space! Besides there was plenty to do in Weymouth itself so all in all a very enjoyable holiday!

  • "The best holiday home we have ever stayed in."

    Close to everything and very clean and tidy. Only down side is parking. There is no parking space for you on arrival. We did park in ground nearby but had to block to local residents in so not so good. Mid week was guaranteed space but the not knowing meant we didn’t take car out all week something we have never done before so stayed in Weymouth which wasn’t so bad. Other properties around do seem to have an area you can book so maybe the owners of Seahorse Cottage could get something like this going forward. For location and a fantasist home would give 10 out of 10.

    We throughly enjoyed staying in this beautiful cottage and we can't wait to visit again. Being in the old harbour near Brewers Quay/Hope Square was ideal for us. Weymouth is such a beautiful location which we can't believe we have never visited before!

  • "Lovely cottage and great location."

    However, the parking is an issue and should REFLECT in the price of holiday rental as I think some people would find this a problem. I did phone up prior to leaving as I realised there was no parking included. Lady said there was street parking but on a "first come" basis. The road outside actual rental is only one car wide, and then becomes slightly wider, two car wide - just. We parked on the 2 car width section and carried our belongings to cottage. We didn't move it for 4 days as we walked, and also caught the train to other towns. But we used the car thereafter. We were very lucky for parking for next couple of days upon our return. However, on the Friday evening there was no parking whatsoever and we had to leave it a good 5 minutes walk away. That wasn't too bad but I was aware we had to load car up on Saturday as we were leaving. Fortunately we were up early, and my husband noticed someone leave and rushed to bring our car back. With no "easy" available parking it somewhat alters your experience. It stops those "oh lets pop to...……………." moments as if you have a parking space you are aware that if you do pop somewhere, even to the local shop, then the likelihood of finding a parking space upon your return is doubtful.

  • "We absolutely loved Seahorse Cottage and would love to return."

    The location was ideal for walking to town and the beach. Was very clean and had everything we needed and dog friendly! Parking is on a first come, first served basis so it did mean leaving the car further up the road from the property but we did manage to get a space on the days we had travelled out of Weymouth. The only negative comment we can say about this booking is that the cleaner turned up 40 minutes before departure time to see if the key had been left in the safe deposit box and the clean laundry was also dropped off for them. We have not experienced this before when previously booking with you.
