  • "Such a lovely relaxing property, feels much bigger than the photos actually show."

    Great decor throughout, very tastefully done. It has everything you need. Bed is very comfortable. Bathroom is also very nice, the automatic lighting that comes on when you enter at night is an excellent idea so you don’t have the noise of the extractor fan coming on. Definitely one of the best properties we have ever stayed in. Top marks from us.

    Had small issue with parking, but rectified very speedily and efficiently by Sykes Cottages. Even the sun shone on occasions.

  • "Lovely apartment."

    In a great location. Beautifully decorated. We were there bank holiday Easter weekend so very rowdy the noise from outside it didn't bother us but might some people but once that was over very quiet and relaxing. Several stairs to go up into the apartment which sadly would put us off staying again and the walk to the pavilion to park our car and bring our luggage . As it was good Friday we had to do two trips to the carpark to fetch our luggage. Our fault we should have read the details properly regarding accessibility it was quite challenging for us but if your young and fit it won't be a problem. It was great to have the beach on the doorstep and the lovely view. We did have a problem with the washing machine door not opening after washing my husbands clothes not long after we got there due to an unfortunate event with a seagull and reported it on Saturday we were told a new catch was needed and they would be in touch to fix it however a week later and it wasn't done and my husbands clothes were still stuck in the washer. I had to play about with it for ages to get his clothes out so not ideal. However things go wrong and it didn't deter away from having a fab week in 5 The Beaches.

    This apartment is stylish and well equipped and clean The location is suburb with great view of the beach and the sea and close to shops and restaurants and right on the esplanade Parking nearby is a challenge when you arrive to unload your car, but very useful permit provided that allows you to park in the carpark that is a short walk away

  • "Lovely apartment with quality fixtures and fittings."

    Central location ideal for the town and the beach and for easy access to the coastal paths. The only downside was the constant noise which seemed to go on all night, with Friday and Saturday being the noisiest. We had to keep the windows closed despite the heat to try to reduce the noise level. There appears to be a cocktail bar directly at the rear of the property which could be the source of the noise? Other than that we’d definitely recommend the apartment

  • "This 2nd floor apartment was a great place to base our coastal explorations from."

    The apartment was very modern and spacious - the photos are good representation of what we found. Parking - the supply of two permits worked well. One covers Zone F - the on street parking around the apartment. The other permit covered the main Weymouth car parks - including at the Chesil Visitor Centre, and one just as you arrive onto Portland (very useful for our round isle walk on that day). Noise - not too bad for a town centre location. Improvements that would make it even better ... a proper handle on the apartment door, if kitchen towel had been supplied, cleaner windows to enjoy the great views (luckily the window cleaner arrived mid-week but no idea how frequently they attend). Would recommend to friends and family. PS ... try https://www.myshiptracking.com/ if you want to find out which of the big cruise ships are in Weymouth Bay when looking out the window!

  • "1) The address is given as 47A The Esplanade (both on your emailed material and in the book inside the property), but on arrival that is a small black door to the left of Benny's, whereas the numbers shown above the actual entrance are 48 &49 The Esplanade."

    Please correct these errors. 2) The bathroom extractor fan ran continuously for ages and ages and ages and the only thing we could do was to turn it off above the door. Please adjust the fan timer to something sensible like 10 minutes. 3) Heating control system was not clear or easy to operate, and the time is still showing as British Summer Time!!!. 3) Humax remote control batteries were flat, so we had to swap with TV remote. 4) Cleaning windows would give even better view at front. 5) We really appreciated the flexibility of having both the car parking permits.

  • "Well furnished and maintained accommodation in a great setting with wonderful views of the beach, the sea and the harbour."

    The only suggestion we would make to improve the experience would be to have a weekly change of bed linen and towels for clients like ourselves who were staying for two weeks or more.

    Thank you for your valuable feedback and we are pleased you enjoyed the property and the wonderful views. We would have been delighted to drop off some fresh bed linen and towels for you during your stay, this service is available on request due to the virus this year. We look forward to welcoming you back to Dream Cottages again soon Property Owner

    Plenty of space, bed was extremely comfortable! There was plenty of cutlery and everything you needed if you are cooking in the apartment. The views from the living room where great and the place was very central to everything. Everything like hob, oven, shower etc was easy to use. Only downside was it was a bit noisy on the streets on Friday and Saturday in the early hours but it didn’t ruin our stay we just had a lie on in the mornings! Will 100% book again if we come to Weymouth again it was perfect.

  • "What a wonderful apartment in a fantastic location - we just loved our stay there."

    This is our fourth holiday in Weymouth, and I can honestly say this was by far the best accommodation we have stayed in. Both my husband and I retired in August this year, so we decided for this holiday, as our first as "retirees", we would book better accommodation than we usually do, we have never stayed right on the sea front before. All we can say is that we were not disappointed, the flat is absolutely wonderful, so well designed, furnished and equipped, and spotlessly clean. The owners have provided wonderful accommodation for a holiday. My husband loved it, he said he could quite happily live here full time as our retirement home!! The location is lovely, it was wonderful having a full sea view and watching the activities both on the beach and on the sea. My husband is a "people watcher" so he was in his element. The sofas and chairs were so comfortable, and the bed was one of the most comfortable we have slept in (better than ours at home!!). It is so centrally located it is easy to go shopping and out for walks along the esplanade, and easy reach of coffee shops and restaurants - and if you like fish "Rockfish" below the flats is a wonderful place to eat - we ate there three times, and then its just upstairs to bed. Yes, the slight negative is the noise from the music and youngsters from the bar next door on Friday and Saturdays nights, we were expecting this from other feedback, and the property description, but we found it did not disturb us too much, yes the base could be heard until around 3.00am, but as the bedroom is on the back of the apartment it was not than bad, and never kept either of us awake. The other nights were very quiet and we did not notice any noise at all. As my husband said, if you want to be in the thick of it you have to accept a little noise. We love it so much we have already booked our next stay here in June next year, which I daresay won't be our last. Thank you Dream Cottages and The Beaches for a wonderful holiday.

  • "We loved Weymouth, the location of the flat together with the flat itself which was clean, spacious and well furnished and fitted with a great view."

    We had not however expected the noise from the nightclub next door to be as bad as it was. The music which started about 11pm and went on till 3am was bearable, you could hear the beat but it was tolerable. What we had not expected was the level of street noise which started about 2am and went on till 5am (worse from 3am when the club closed for about an hour). With bedroom at the rear of the property the noise from the from the front could be reduced slightly by closing the living room door, however there was nothing that would reduce the noise from the rear alleyway which was certainly not expected and would have thought that the local authority would have made noise from the rear of the building a condition of any application. The noise issues were on Fri, Sat and Thu. Sunday to Wednesday was bliss. We will go to Weymouth again but sadly not to No 5, the noise was a step too far. A couple in flat 2 left on Monday due to the noise.

    Absolutely fantastic position, right on the beach. Wonderful views, and centrally located for everything. Apartment is wonderful, bright, modern, clean and spacious - with quality furniture and fittings. Yes the negative is the noise on a Friday and Saturday night, but we didn't find it that much of a problem, and the positives of this flat certainly outweight the negatives. Will certainly return again.

  • "The accommodation is probably the best I've ever stayed in."

    Extremely comfortable with excellent fixtures and fittings. Great location directly looking over beach. Negatives: Dropping baggage of is a bit of a pain, especially in busy periods when the parking wardens are active. It was very noisy on Friday and Saturday evenings, with a couple of bars at the front of the property and a nightclub going in until 3am. The bass could be heard in the bedroom. Explain how the double locks work on the apartment door as both us and the couple in No.6 had the same initial problem.

  • "Wow, wow, wow - what can I say?"

    We have just returned from our first ever visit to Weymouth, and did we enjoy the week. The area is beautiful, we visited Lulworth Cove, Durdle Dor, Portland Bill, lunched on the beach at Wyke Regis, enjoyed walking around the lively harbour eating fish and chips, and sunbathed on the Nothe. Enjoyed a lovely boat ride, (where they even supplied a life jacket for out baby). A perfect weeks holiday, made even more enjoyable from the superb accommodation provided here at "The Beaches", the position is fantastic, having breakfast looking out to sea, and the sailing boats, right in the centre of all the attractions, so nowhere was far to walk. I must admit my wife was a bit dubious on going, after reading the previous feedback, as we have an 11 month old baby, which was posted after we made our booking, but our experience proved to be totally different. We were not bothered by noise at all. We popped into the bar next door "Aura" for a lunch time drink, and I asked about the music - it seems as though they operate as a quiet cocktails bar Sunday to Thursday, with only light background music, and do operate as a "club" on Friday and Saturday nights and are open to 3.00am. On these tow nights for a couple of hours we could hear a faint "boom boom", which we likened to hearing next doors TV thru the wall, as it certainly didn't bother us, and with our TV on we did not hear it at all. We put our son down at 9.30 as usual, and he slept the whole night, and we went to bed around 11.30, and were not disturbed at all. (I maybe feel the previous post was a little unfair). This is a beautiful apartment, brand new, clean and well arranged, beautifully furnished with quality furniture ( and plenty of it - two sofas and a chair for a one bed apartment!), well equipped with a least 6 of everything, the accessories are artwork are lovely (my wife wanted to take a couple of the pictures home), I must say the owners have put a lot of thought and effort into making this a wonderful holiday home - in a fantastic position - one which we plan on to return to later this year. Oh and the icing on the cake, having a dedicated reserved parking space a few minutes walk away, on street parking, if you can find a space is limited to 4 hours for £6.00 and all day parking in car parks was £8.00, so it was nice to go out for the day, and know that when we returned we would have somewhere to park - and it did not cost the earth. This is our forth self catering holiday since getting married, and we can honestly say this far beats anything we have stayed in. Apologies if I appear to go on a bit - but we just loved it, and cant wait to return for another week later this year, and are so pleased we found this little gem, and discovered Weymouth. Our only regret is that s our family grows (hopefully), we will not be able to stay here, but I am sure Dream Cottages will have suitable accommodation for our family, as we will definitely be making Weymouth a regular holiday destination, as it seems to be such a lovely friendly family holiday resort (and being the dotting dad - aren't we all), I want to take my children on the beach rides opposite "The Beaches", and a donkey ride. Many thanks for a wonderful holiday. - Oh and the Services Day parade on Sunday was wonderful, and to sit in the apartment and watch it was great.

  • "Very disappointed at the nightclub that was next door and attached to the building with the nightclub speakers on the dividing wall of the apartment, it was extremely noisy and boomed in the apartment until 3am - this was not mentioned in the listing or warned about."

    Also as a recommendation we would recommend a handle rail on the one staircase that does not have one.

    I am very sorry that you found the property noisy, I have fed your feedback to the owner who has stayed there several times and has had no significant noise issues to date. As per our property description, The Beaches is located on the lively seafront and at weekends it is a very popular location. With regards to the handrail, this will be looked in to as soon as possible. Property Owner
