  • "First-class first-floor apartment, well appointed, clean and comfortable."

    Great views over the river and excellent location with easy access to facilities in Weymouth. Even though it was winter there was a good choice of restaurants.

  • "We loved the apartment - it had the best view of the harbour that we have had so far."

    The flat was immaculate, stylish and comfortable. We would love to stay at Tradewinds again.

  • "One of the best holiday lets we have stayed in."

    This was the second stay this year and will be booking again for next year. The flat position must be one of the best in Weymouth. We are both in our 70s and just to sit in the bay window was great. Always something happening in the harbour but a very quiet. The flat was clean and tidy but showing signs wanting a deep clean but this is the end of the season. ie. Carpets/ mats/ settee and oven needs deep cleaning ( not in the power of weekly cleaning in the short time they have). We are looking forward to staying again early next year. David and Pat.

  • "I've been to this property several times now."

    The double bed duvet is 13.5 tog (beautiful duvet) but much too hot for summer. The window in the middle room doesn't open properly and the blinds in both bedrooms are broken. I've reported them several times before but they haven't been looked at. I like the property very much and the position on the river is lovely. A beautiful view from the bay window. Beautifully clean.

    The view from the lounge window is stunning! I would definitely book again if we were to holiday in Weymouth.

  • "This is the second time we have visited Tradewinds."

    It is ideally placed in Weymouth for all the amenities. It is a comfortable, clean and beautifully furnished apartment. We particularly enjoyed the window seats!

  • "We have stayed in the flats for a number of years now and love them."

    No major issues this year but, it would be good to repair/replace the washer drier as only the washing machine works now. This is needed as there is no where to hang washing in this flat. There was no cork screw in the flat but, DREAM made one available the same day. They also supplied a clothes rack for drying clothes. We had a lovely time. If any of the flats come up for sale, we would love the option to buy one.

  • "The apartment is in a perfect location the view is outstanding you could sit by the window all day and watch the comings and going’s of the harbour, the apartment has some lovely home furnishings and it is exceptionally comfortable, Previous reviews mention the show yes it’s small but manageable plenty of shelf space around the sink area to store toiletries to take in the shower when using."

    Twin bedroom beds are really comfortable the room is lovely and light with plenty of drawer and wardrobe space, double room is a little dark due to lack of light however it’s still a lovely room with very comfortable bed and again plenty of drawer and wardrobe space. The apartment is close to all shops and restaurants. In summary a very comfortable well presented apartment in an ideal location which I would highly recommend.

  • "What a beautiful place!"

    We had the best holiday and can hardly fault the apartment. From breakfast overlooking the harbour to evenings watching the world go by. The apartment is very well equipped, quirky and comfortable. We had an issue with the kettle blowing the fuse which was resolved quickly. Parking is a squeeze and unpacking the car not straight forward but was all well documented when we booked. The 2 weekend fairs and the road closures made it more difficult but having said that walking out the door to cider, ice cream and live music made up for it! We will most certainly be back very soon, thank you for a brilliant holiday.

  • "Loved the apartment."

    We were very happy with everything. Would only mention two things though. The bathroom could do with some hooks or rails to put the towels on. We had to drape them on the doors in the apartment. The flashing light in the double bedroom is alittle off putting during the night. Having said that, we would still recommend the apartment to people and would stay there again.

    Fabulous location. We've stayed in several properties in Weymouth over the years and for us this is by far the best. In fact this is our fourth stay. For us it's the view. From early morning to late at night its perfect. We couldn't recommend it enough.

  • "Pros: Well appointed flat, comfortable beds."

    We spent a LOT of time sitting in the bay window watching the boats go by. Excellent location, we used Weymouth as a base to visit Lulworth Cove, Durdle Dor, Nothe Fort, Monkey World, Old Harry's Rock, Corfe Castle and spent our downtime in the many coffee shops around the harbour (The Library Café, just downstairs from the flat, is great, as is the Harbour Café on opposite side of harbour). Cons: As a family we like to relax and watch TV together, especially on cooler evening. The TV was not a great model. The remote did not 'talk' to the TV at all, it was not a battery problem. By Thursday the TV had scrambled the channels and all we could get was interference. This was swiftly resolved on Friday by the agent, but by the evening the remote had stopped again. I would expect, in this technical age, for there to be a smart TV, thus allowing for Netflix etc to be used. Insufficient hanging space for damp towels.

  • "This apartment is all about a fabulous bay window ."

    It looks out on the Harbour side, the lifting bridge, the far headland, the sea, the breakwater, lots of boats ( of many sizes ), which come and go, and the rise and fall of the tides. The Harbour side restaurants and pubs, are largely on the opposite quay, and well illuminated at night, as is the lifting bridge & old town beyond. The sun rise , and sun setting, give added drama to this wonderful view. Super wet fish shop on the other quay. It is like a deluxe pavement cafe site! In your home. The apartment is just great in most respects. Parking is less than easy, but it is a free space! A little walk away, perhaps 800/900 yards, Unloading the car has to be rushed, as it is a no parking area, except for spaces that are always occupied! The double bedroom is dark, with little natural light, The douvets were super warm. The TV needs careful handling, or it refuses to work, ( we had to get the agents to help us ). Great place, we really enjoyed our time there.

A short drive away from the town of Weymouth are beautiful villages of Burton Bradstock, West Bexington to West and Sutton Poyntz, Ringstead, Chaldon Herring to East with beautiful cottages to admire.

About the location


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!
