  • "A very nice apartment."

    All the furnishings and equipment are of a high standard.The location is excellent & we did not experience any noise. I was worried about some maintenance on the bridge but the response from Sykes & the owner allayed my fears. I look forward to visiting again.

  • "Absolutely fabulous holiday at Waterside apartment."

    The most comfortable beds I have ever had at a holiday let. Great that one of the bedrooms and bathrooms was on the same level as the living areas for my Dad who has mobility problems. Lots of hot water for all four of us to shower / bath after long hot days out and about. Very well equipped for self catering, although we ate out every night and therefore didn't use any of the cooking facilities. Complimentary drinks tray and fresh flowers was lovely. Also, bonus of a parking permit to park close to the accommodation. My only negative comment was that if requesting to use sanitary bags (as I do at home) that there should be a better supply (only 2 in the shower room and 4 in the bathroom) so dog poo bags came into use

  • "Only one annoying issue with the property is it being the ground floor."

    Having other people stay in the accommodation above you can be very noisy stomping of feet moving chairs etc.

  • "This is a great property, overlooking the harbour, close to shops, pubs and beach."

    It was very clean, also had tea, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits an a pint of milk in the fridge to welcome us. Property had plenty of cleaning items, as well as wash tabs for the washing machine. Beds comfortable, we opted for the second bedroom (which has 2 single beds) to be made as a king size bed. The only negative thing which I would point out, is that the property upstairs, (which is also a Sykes property) gets quite noisy with people moving around above you. In our case, the people staying, liked to get around 6am, I'm sure they didn't realise, but this did disturb us, as they started their day.

    The cottage supplied everything you could possibly want, it is close to the town and a large supermarket. We would recommend this property and we will try to book the same one for next year as it was ideal for our needs.

  • "Had a lovely week in Weymouth."

    Property was nice and spacious, fantastic location, could not get any closer to the centre. Everything you would need and nice touches, with tea/coffee etc biscuits and milk. Cute little flowers on table too. Also nice little extras in bathroom. Really liked the location and massive choice of good bars and places to eat and such a friendly place. Would have liked blackout blinds/ darker blinds in bedroom but thats personal choice and just what we are used to at home .Also great location for exploring the area. Dog friendly property and area too. Would definitely come back

  • "We had a great stay with our two young children."

    Location and facilities were excellent. They enjoyed watching the bridge openings from the window and everything was within walking distance. The property had everything needed for a family including non-slip bath mat, stepping stool, and children’s books for example. There are areas for improvement. Cleanliness needs addressing; there was someone else’s underwear left in a drawer, my hand got covered in cobwebs when putting things in another drawer, tops of mirrors were covered in dust and floor was filthy. Thankfully the kitchen and bathrooms were clean. A few other issues which could be improved are contact details and travel cot provision. I would expect an answering message facility on the contact number provided, this should be relatively easy to do. Also, as is typical, the travel cot did not come with a mattress, but the folding mat was particularly floppy meaning that every night my one year old folded it up to the end and slept on the metal bars. We could not bring our own cot mattress as travel cots do not have standard sizing and no dimensions were listed.

    Lovely property - everything you could need - flat above had three dogs unfortunately there constantly running around in the evening made it hard to sleep in one of the bedrooms - but not a fault of this property which is lovely and well situated, furnishings are lovely and beds very comfortable - only comment is does need more than a superficial clean , blinds , floors under beds ect thick with dust , no doubt as not been used for a long time - but we will be back

    Very clean and comfortable, appreciated the option for the twin beds to be combined to a king-size. Thought obviously given to covid requirements and we appreciated the handgel provided for use when leaving and entering.

  • "Fantastic location, 10 minute walk to beach which was great with two young children."

    Also, many places to eat along the harbourside (within a minutes walk) and a 5 minute walk to the large supermarket. Very comfortable and clean property for our holiday - had everything we needed. It might be worth noting that there is a shared alleyway to the front door. This wasn't a major issue however, our dog did bark every time someone from the other property walked through the alley.

  • "The location of the cottage was a fantastic start but the actual cottage and facilities within were considerably better than expected."

    Often photos make a place look bigger and better than they are but not in the case of Waterside. Everything was considered, the little touches inside made it more than a self catering experience usually is. Clean, comfortable, inviting....we didn’t want to leave

  • "We really enjoyed our stay it was central for everything, there was a couple of things regarding personal choice, I didn't realise when the two single beds were made into a large double the only way to get out of the bed if you were near the wall was to slide down to the bottom to get out which disturbed the other who was still asleep, and I wasn't very keen about the shower in the bathroom it was difficult to get an ambient temperature and disliked it being overhead (I prefer one onto my upper body from off the wall)."

    We had a disabled person with us and she found it difficult to negotiate the steps to the en-suite bedroom (she needed those facilities) it would make sense to put a grab rail on the steps to make things easier, other than that everything was really good and hope to stay there again.

  • "Location was marvellous, easy for town centre and lots of restaurants/pubs close by too in the harbour area."

    View over the harbour was fab and 10 minutes to Nothe park was spot on for early morning walks (Doggie came too). The apartment was excellent - comfy sofa's, comfy beds, lovely decor, essentials for a cuppa provided and enough cooking utensils and crockery to feed the 5,000. (I dont cook on hols). I cannot think of a single thing to complain about. Well done the owners for Waterside and Sykes!

  • "We had a lovely stay in this superbly situated apartment."

    The only couple of things we'd mention are that on the listing, perhaps it would be worthwhile mentioning about the few steps there are to get in the property and also within the property. We wanted a ground floor apartment because my elderly Mum has mobility issues and I think a lot of people who are searching for ground floor living are the same. It would be really helpful if there had been a grab rail on the steps up to the bedroom also. Other than that, we couldn't fault this wonderful little apartment, which is ideal for all amenities and is well equipped and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again without a moment's hesitation.
