  • "Too noisy for us."

    Right next to a busy pub and the road. The beds were awful, really hard and uncomfortable . If you're young and like the night life then this is for you. If you are looking for peace and quiet then try somewhere away from the harbour . The place itself is well equipped with linen provided and towels it's also clean.

  • "A great location next to the harbour and easy access to the town."

    We're stayed at Tarps flat a great many times and has all we need for a self catering holiday even a chairlift for our 95 year old aunt who loves the views from the flat. The patio is also an added bonus too,and if any problems were encountered the owner was quick to sort them. Will miss the flat if its taken off next year.

  • "The location was great for watching the boats and being close to town and the beach."

    Really nice view of the harbour was the biggest plus. However, the noise levels were high due to traffic, people shouting on the street and roadworks (unlucky timing). With two young ones needing naps this was a bit challenging! The beds were comfortable and the terrace was a nice bonus for an evening drink. The kitchen and bathroom facilities were ok but could do with places to hang things like coats, somewhere to put shoes and a deep clean of the dishwasher and washing machine which smelled bad on arrival. We also found used earplugs and cotton buds left from a previous stay, which was a bit off-putting. Finally although there was a parking permit there were very few usable spaces and these were occupied 99% of the time. We ended up paying £36 to park in the council car park across the river for the week. Overall it was a good stay, better for families with older children who don’t need to nap!

    Nice location for the town and while sat at table can look out over the harbour. Just hope it is available next year

  • "Lovely apartment well furnished with everything we needed."

    The beds were all comfortable, the kitchen was modern and well equipped. The location is fabulous; beautiful views over the harbour and right in the centre of the town. It is a 2 minute walk to restaurants, shops and the beach. My only slight complaint was the standard of cleanliness could have been better. Nothing major but dirty tissues down the back of one of the beds, the tablecloth was very grimey when I wiped it and a previous occupiers dirty sock in another bedroom! Would not stop us from staying again but is why I've only given 9/10 otherwise it would have been a 10/10.

  • "The property was ideally located, within a few minutes’ walk to the busy streets of Weymouth."

    There was a deck which allowed us to have a superb view on the marina. Overall, we had a very pleasant stay. However, we were disappointed with a few things: first of all, there was no hair-dryer. Granted, this is a minor complaint but still. Secondly, the cleaning must not have been thorough because the apartment was a bit sticky in a number of places. Finally, and this is our major complaint: we had been in touch with Dream Cottages before our arrival to enquire if we would be provided with a parking permit. We were strongly encouraged to book a parking spot in the Britannia parking lot which is a couple of hundred meters away from Tarps Apartment and which cost us £40, only to realize when we entered the apartment that there was a parking permit waiting for us! And of course, there was no way of getting our money back from Britannia…

  • "The location of this first floor flat is excellent with views over the activities in the harbour."

    The accommodation and facilities within the flat were generally good, but a hair drier would have been expected. However the main problem was the stale smell in the entrance and staircase from the street which was awful due to total lack of ventilation and quite off-putting. Also the cleanliness was patchy as the bathroom was very clean but kitchen and living room surfaces were sticky on arrival.

  • "A great little apartment in a perfect quite location right alongside the harbour, with a large patio area, perfect for sitting out ion in the evening overlooking the harbour boats & watching the sun set."

    Town centre just a few minutes walk. We are a family of 4 with 2 adult sons & didn't have an issue with space, dining table a bit cramped but we expected that from viewing the pictures, but we all managed to get round it. The apartment was very clean, modern and in good order, a few minor issue like the double bedroom door not latching shut & the TV stand being broken but that was it, the sofas were not the most comfortable but then we didn't spend a lot of time sitting in the lounge. Parking was not an issue for us in late April as we always found a space outside or adjacent to the apartment. I would recommend this property, especially for the location.

    Flat spotlessly clean and kitchen well equipped. Views from all windows lovely of the harbour. We sat out on the terrace and watched the boats, fisherman and children crabbing. We were 3 adults and 2 teenagers, plenty for everyone to do considering we were 3 generations. Would recommend and definitely would return.

  • "The pictures taken of the property made it look bigger."

    It’s a small property and I think if 5 people had stayed it would be too much. However I would definitely stay there again, the location is perfect and the bay window in the living room was a key feature. The beds were also extremely comfortable. I look forward to staying here again. Thank you.

    I am disabled and having the stairlift really helps. The apartment itself is excellent with views over the harbour. I use a mobility scooter and the landlady makes sure the electric socket is on outside to enable me to charge it every day. When we arrived the apartment smelt clean and everything was there to make our holiday lovely.

  • "Location was perfect and we could watch the herring gulls attempting to pinch fish and chips from people while eating ours from the security of the flat overlooking the harbour."

    There is a stair lift provided which meant that hubby didn't have to struggle with the stairs but there is nowhere to store a mobility scooter. The shops are close by so we didn't need to buy a whole week's worth of food and store it. We would stay here again in spite of the negative points following. Some crockery was dirty and needed washing before use but then it became evident that the dish washer was inefficient. As it was a self catering apartment, I did expect some cleaning products to be provided but had to purchase it: hence the imperfect facilities score. I paid for long stay in a car park for the week as the parking permit details were not available before the day and the location of these areas were not clear on the permit.

  • "Lovely flat, well equipped."

    The reason I didn’t give it 10, was the keys were locked in the apartment when we arrived. All though we arrived 30 minutes early, it was used as an excuse!!! If I waited till 3pm, no one would of come so I still would have had to call. Then when we got into flat and closed the door, the lock jammed & we could not get out!! So had to put in another call & wait for the door to be open from the outside. As the agent said and I quote “these things happen” Then we found there was no towels left for us, so no one could shower or change for our booking that night it was gone 18.30 before towels arrived.... also as the flat was not occupied for a while, it was freezing inside. Heating had to be left on for 24hours to get the temperature up to 19.5... This all happen on the first day... normally with Dream Cottages the check in is smooth & straight forward, but not this time. I’ve been using dream cottages for many years now, but I think I will find another agent, as Sykes Cottages is based in Chester & does not have local knowledge of the area.
