  • "Lovely long weekend spent at Spindrift- would be great if there could be some mirrors put in the bedrooms."

    I had to go downstairs to use the mirror in the hallway to dry my hair.

    Firstly, to thank everyone for their comments as it helps us to improve you stay. There have been a couple of feedback comments this year about the need for more mirrors in the property. We will add some mirrors when we review and upgrade the faciilties at the end of the season. Property Owner

  • "Lovely holiday home and a perfect location in Brewer’s Quay."

    We had a great stay with our two young girls, had everything we needed at the house and loved sitting on the balcony in the evenings. We would definitely stay again. The only improvement would be to keep out/remove the ants in the downstairs bedroom.

    I am pleased to say that the management company, Dream cottages, reacted quickly to the 'ant' problem that has not reoccurred. To make sure this cannot happen again we will remove or replace the planters in the courtyard. Property Owner

  • "We were very pleased with the cottage: it was in an excellent position, parking was good and secure, it was spacious, quiet and basically well equipped - plates, mugs, glasses and cutlery were plentiful and of good quality."

    There are not many places that can easily accommodate 5 adults but this place could, easily. Definitely a place that you would be happy to use again. I endorse all the positives, and add that it was generally clean and tidy, and very convenient for downtown Weymouth. Surprisingly quiet too. I thought it was clean and well equipped. Easy access to harbour too. I wholeheartedly echo all of the comments given. One of the best holiday properties I've ever stayed in. Clean, beautifully decorated and accessorised with stylish quality items. Fantastic position - quiet but right on the lovely harbour.

  • "Spindrift was very comfortable."

    Open plan kitchen, dining, siting room area. Good kitchen facilities, with outdoor seating area to the side of the front door. Great location on Brewers Quay. We really enjoyed our week stay, and we would stay there again. The only irksome thing is the TV is only connected to the internet (not to an ariel) therefore to watch freeview (BBC /ITV/ C4 etc). you have to navigate to iplayer/ ITVX/ C4 player. My parents found this difficult.

    Thank you for your feedback on the TV. We have now connected an ariel direct to the TV so that normal watching of Freeview TV can take place without using the channel apps. Property Owner

    Very happy with the stay.

  • "Beautiful property, well equipped and excellent standards throughout."

    Loved the location, nice and quiet but with everything in super easy walking distance, and the security of knowing my car was safe however long I left it. The only extra thing that my teenage daughter would have liked was a full length mirror - she toured the house twice to make sure she hadn’t missed such an essential

    Thank you for your feedback. We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay. Very soon we will be adding things to the property and it is a promise that we will add a full length mirror. Today, 12/10/23, we were at the property and pleased to report that we added a full length mirror. Property Owner

  • "Sorely disappointed overall living area not suitable for comfort as sofa is only fit for skip it is sagging and no foam and rock solid none of us could sit on it."

    We had to stay out late to get comfortable seating elsewhere.Also dining chairs are not very stable they are just director chairs flimsy wooden ones, Television would not be able to watch unless you subscribed to channels could not watch live tv the single bed mattresses were also very hard, no full length mirror also no mirrors in bedrooms to dry hair and makeup I have never stayed anywhere where no bedroom mirrors available. Parking was very tight , that said the double and king size beds were very comfortable and the location was fantastic as I have used dream cottages many times without any issues I feel that spindrift is not to your normal standard I felt a little let down Kind regards

    Thank you for valuable feedback, we are pleased you loved the location and found the beds comfortable. August 2023 is the first time Spindrift has been available for holiday letting. New beds and furniture were placed in the double bedrooms, all new kitchen equipment, TV and many other things. We are sorry you felt not enough had been done and of course it is unfortunate a new TV should need replacing after 2 weeks of use. I understand Dream managed the replacement of the TV very quickly and set up the subscriptions to TV channels. We will buy some mirrors and review the replacement of the sofa, and dining chairs, as we want all guests to be comfortable. Thank you again for providing your feedback. Property Owner

About the location

BREWERS QUAY HARBOUR

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!
