  • "Great house in a fabulous location"

    Reviewed by JosieNov 2021

  • "Location of this property is excellent, close to everything but on the quieter side of the harbour."

    Peaceful but plenty going on. Convenient parking spot and free overnight parking for extra car close by at the Nothe. We have been coming to Weymouth for years and this was the first time we have stayed in the centre, we were slightly worried it might be too busy for us but it was idyllic and exceeded our expectations. Lovely being able to sit out front and watch the goings on in the harbour and we loved the crabbing.

  • "This house is ideally placed to enjoy the harbour, the pier a d the parkland and shops."

    Has a really lovely atmosphere. The house is to a high spec with lovely comfortable beds, white linen , plenty of lovely white towels. The house is clean and I loved the bath. Each room has access to a toilet and shower and would give great privacy to family members or different groups. The house has everything you need and more. My only comment is that all the rings on the cooker do not work and no instructions to how it works. Super cooker but needs some repair. This is only my thought but could there be a curtain in the lounge as the view is amazing and should not be blocked out but if you are there and weather not so great it would be cosy and helps with watching the TV and a gas fire in the lounge for winter lettting. Garden great and well positioned and great to have parking. Asda very near and a great Londis shop very near along with a great fish and chip shop. Loved it and would go again.

  • "The property is fantastic."

    It has been kitted out to a very high spec and is extremely comfortable. The only issues were the central heating was temperamental and I had to contact the owner more than once to rectify it remotely. The property was quite cold at times but thankfully it was quite a mild weekend. There was nowhere to empty the bins either meaning after 5 days they were overflowing.

  • "The cottage was in a perfect position, well maintained and had every comfort anyone would need or expect, we know Weymouth quite well and for the cottage to come with allocated secure parking is a godsend, taking everything into consideration we had a perfect holiday in perfect accommodation."

  • "The Boat House was perfect for a family holiday right on the harbour with spectacular views from the lounge window overlooking the boats."

    It was spacious and very well equipped to meet all the families needs. We were so pleased to find many essentials already at the house on arrival. WiFi was excellent, beds were high quality & extremely comfortable. The ground floor bedroom is great for anyone with mobility difficulties as it also had a TV. There was also a ground floor bathroom so my elderly family member had there own space but could spend time with us in the kitchen and also eat with us in the dinning room. Bars and restaurants were on the doorstep and the town centre a few minutes walk away. Some lovely walks just around the corner and lots of places that are pet friendly on the harbourside too. Would highly recommend this house.

  • "Stunning cottage in the heart of the marina."

    Beautiful relaxing views, it was simply the perfect getaway for our young family. I would highly recommend and would want to stay again in the future. Easy check in and out. There is a hand manual to read when you get there which is full of information about the local area. Lots of shops, cafes and restaurants within a 5 minute walk around the harbour. Beach about a 10 minute walk further around the harbour. Very quiet at night too! There is also some crabbing and beach toys at the property which came in handy. You can enjoy some crabbing directly outside the property which was wonderful in the early evening with the beautiful views. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We will be rebooking!

  • "This is not a complaint as we were very happy, but it was not clearly pointed out where the one car could be parked free of charge, it did say in the book at the house that it was at the rear in the private car park, if it had been on the Sykes website we would have gone straight into the parking place making unloading easier."

    Once we discovered this the parking was brilliant, we then found out that we could park the additional car there but I had already pre purchased a weekly parking ticket from Dorset council. Other than this the house was wonderful and exactly as Sykes website described. Best holiday home we have ever rented. Thankyou
