  • "This rental was truly first class."

    I cannot fault this or the location in any way whatsoever. We actually stayed there for two months and so naturally did a lot of research before booking. Having now seen a lot of Weymouth I seriously doubt that there is a better 2 bed:2 bath anywhere in the town. Sykes cottages and Dream Cottages were excellent to communicate with and very efficient. I hope to return.

  • "Love this apartment."

    very clean and warm. Comfortable beds and ideal for two couples. We enjoy the view from the lounge in all weather. Convenient for shops, buses and restaurants. A tray would be useful as we usually bring our own.

  • "When we booked many months ago the listing had said it had a car parking space under the property, a week before we came I noticed this had been taken off."

    The parking onsite was why we chose the property as others have also said. I was advised the space part of the listing was removed in 2022, others had also been expecting the parking space going on reviews, so this was not the case. It also said on the property listing there may be building work, yet we hadn’t been informed of this risk before our stay. Sykes told us there is currently no work going on luckily, if we got there to it this it would have been an issue as it’s the agents job to inform you of such things before hand. View lovely, clean property. However didn’t appreciate being woken at 4am in the morning from a spinning washing machine above us, you can also hear everything in the communal stairs outside the flat at all times. Not getting in til 5pm was a pain, sadly not worth the almost £600 for less than a 48 hour stay. Apart from the view, there’s nothing else I could class as luxurious about the property for the money, compared to other places I’ve stayed in the past.

    We put our keys in the wall safe and moved the numbers when we went out , when we came back someone had tampered with the key safe . We phoned up twice to number provided to report this both times they said would get back to us about it but never heard a thing we also mentioned the top screws on front door handle had also become loose as though they had been undone and they said they would send someone to look at it but needless to say no one came!!!!

    ) very comfortable and in good position. (we were sorry to leave so early in the rental - due to a bereavment in the family) The only problems we found was the lack of utensils in the kitchen which meant you could not use the dishwasher.... Other than this OK ...... not too sure about Weymouth itself though??

  • "Where do I start."

    With the parking fine and all the fees we had to pay or the fact that we didn't know it doesn't have underground parking which aparently it mentioned on the website but wasn't mentioned on the phone when I had spoken and mentioned we had stayed in the penthouse 5 last year. The thing that has really cheesed us off is the fact, when Pentouse 5 had come available and I asked to change to it I was told that it might be owned by a different person and that you had already entered into a contract for property 3. What a load of crap...You can tell it's owned by the same person as it's all decorated the same. People we spoke to there told us it was owned by the same people. What it boils down to is you couldn't be bothered because it ment you doing some work. My wife is disabled, my youngest daughter is disabled and I can only walk short distances since major surgery on my back. We ended up parking up the road overnight for me to get up and move it by 8 o'clock next day and then pay 5 pound for parking.This holiday was spoiled by your lack of customer service as you couldn't put the customer first and change our room. No doubt you will tell me something that's a load of bull to cover youself and how very sorry you are. The property itself is great and my wife loved it and she wants me to book Penthouse 5 as soon as it becones available. I would like to but why should I pay money to you after you wrecked our holiday this year for you to profit from it next year again. Sorry if it's a bit of a moan but all you had to do was change our room.

  • "The property was beautifully presented, clean and has the harbourside view from the living room."

    It was also much larger than expected. The parking at the nearby multi storey was a doddle having bought a week long season pass. The parking is also surprisingly close to the property. A short walk away there are numerous Quay side bars and eateries and the beach is only a 7 minute walk away. There is a nearby Tesco express and several other 7-11 type shops nearby for provisions. Weymouth is a lovely town with plenty to do for the children without it being too over commercialised. Overall had a very happy week at this apartment.

    It is fitted out to a very high standard, the kitchen is equipped with everything you could need (apart from an instruction manual for the induction hob, which would have been useful), bathroom and en suite are excellent (for info - heated towel rail in the en suite was not working, but would no doubt have been fixed,if we'd asked). It's central situation is ideal, with easy access to all parts of Weymouth town. We have added this apartment to the list of our favourite Sykes properties in Weymouth and would love to stay here again.

  • "It's a lovely place - modern, clean, comfortable, and huge windows in the living room overlooking the harbour."

    Kitchen was well-equipped, so issues raised by guests in previous comments must have been addressed. Could do with coat hooks - I'm sure that's easily addressed as well. Only issue - lack of information about the parking situation. For the benefit of future guests: APARTMENT 3 HAS NO ALLOCATED PARKING SPACE, OR PERMIT FOR LOCAL CAR PARK. The solution is to park in the multi-story car park round the corner, which can be booked in advance. Go to this website: https://www.britannia-parking.co.uk/, select "season ticket", select "Weymouth", and then on the "Choose a Ticket" page select "Weekly £25" (option bottom-right corner of page). The number-plate recognition system at the barriers will then allow you to come and go as you please. Easy and no big deal - once you know. DON'T DO WHAT I DID - I selected "Book a Space" and a date range, and got stung for £70. (Dream Cottages were able to provide me with the website details but I had to phone the Britannia Parking head office to find out if leaving and returning during the week was possible as DC couldn't confirm this, and the website didn't say). We would really have appreciated having the above information on the property listing - it would have saved a good deal of faff and expense.

  • "“Lovely apartment, beautifully furnished and perfect location with a great view of the harbour."

    Only criticism is the parking. There is no underground car parking space for apartment 3, so the information folder left at the apartment needs to be updated and car park fob information removed. The permit for the Nothe car park was quite a walk away - there are closer car parks that could be covered by the permit surely? apart from that all good.

  • "When we booked the apartment it was listed has having a parking space at the property and another parking permit for a nearby car park."

    However when we arrived at the apartment we found that the parking space and for apartment 3 had been removed. In the apartment was a sign stating the key fob for the car park at the apartment was hanging on a hook inside the front door, which it was not and that if we lost it there would be a £100 bill to replace it. There was still only one permit for the local car park which was quite a long walk up a steep hill. This was not at all convenient if you are two couples traveling in separate cars, the second car would need to pay parking fees which are very high !!! When i contacted Dream Cottages all i got was a copy of the email which i had been sent a 3 weeks earlier which after a closer examination did not mention the parking space had been removed but did say the permit for the local car park was there.

    Absolutely no need to venture more than a mile from the flat. Everything there. Weymouth People so kind and welcoming. Only one caution. Please believe the warning about garage space for small car only. It really does mean small ie a modern mini would be too big. It is not the actual parking space that is the problem it is the access.

    No chopping boards for preparing food. On arrival l would expect the fridge/freezer to already be on to load food into immediately.

On reading information manual it stated in case of fire, a torch was to be found in bedside drawer, there wasn’t one there.In en suite shower there should have been a bath mat and shower non slip mat, these l had to borrow from the other bathroom, not a problem as l was on my own but if both bed rooms had been in use then it would be, as the en-suite shower and floor would have been very slippery. These were small issues which I’m sure could be easily remedied. The apartment was delightful and fitted out to a high standard.It was situated in an ideal central position with easy access to all parts of the town. The service provided by your company was excellent and l wouldn’t hesitate to book through again. Thank you.

The sleek apartment is a superb find for romantics, beachcombers, avid ramblers and those alike to explore this part of Dorset.

Take the lift up to the second floor to find your home for a week or two.

Enter into the light filled living/dining room, where the large patio doors afford stunning views as you cosy up on the sofa or open up the door to allow a fresh breeze to filter into the space and take drinks out onto the balcony, where the views continue to captivate.

Moving through the property, you will find a well-equipped kitchen, where you can make the most of the electric oven, induction hob, microwave and fridge/freezer to cook up a storm and the dishwasher serves as a helping hand when it comes to cleaning up.

When sleep calls, catch your rest in one of the two bedrooms, comprising of the king-size bedroom, where crisp white linens drape the plush bed and has access to its very own en-suite shower room.

Concluding the interior is the twin bedroom, where you can wake up each morning, open the curtain and admire the harbour views once again before preparing the day within the family bathroom, completing with a shower over bath.

Leave your apartment and look forward to discovering all that the town has to offer, including plenty of places to eat and drink with something to suit all pockets and palettes, or you could meander around the farmers’ market to pick up local produce and pay a visit to the independent Palmer’s Brewery to find the perfect tipple to accompany your home-cooked dishes.

Spend your afternoons lazing on the glorious sands of the beach or if you are feeling active try your hand at one of the watersports on offer.

Those visiting with children can look forward to visiting the SEA LIFE Adventure Park and the striking creations at Sandworld, whilst keen walkers can stroll across the 18-mile long Chesil Beach towards the rugged “Isle” of Portland or you could walk part of the long distance South West Coastal Path to uncover more hidden coves and beautiful beaches.

Secure your stay at Harbourside Haven Apartment 3 and look forward to an action-packed getaway.
