  • "Everything worked for us and our disabled parents beautifully."

    Thank you. Only one issue is the get in time. Historically we were told the late get in was because of the need to deep clean post Covid. The apartment is not deep cleaned so could it be returned back to a 3pm arrival? We have to get mobility scooters and shop when we arrive and it’s simply too late after our drive. And a mention for the owners please sort out the creaky floors in the bedrooms, hall and main bathroom they really are noisy.

    The flat is very convenient for us

  • "Harbour side penthouse it’s a lovely property in a prime location."

    The only downside is the floorboards creak so much there is nowhere in the property that doesn’t creak. Hence if someone gets up in the night it wakes everyone up.

  • "Love the position and security of this flat, the only downside is the noise at night, it is in an area with many pubs."

    Having stayed here before I found it was needing a bit of 'tlc', carpet needs cleaning, bathroom light switch faulty, small veg knife missing, cracked wine glass, tv remote needed new batteries. We had lovely fresh bedding, and plenty of nice towels. Well equiped kitchen. Bedrooms have good storage and comfortable beds.

  • "The word penthouse means Flat on the top floor off the building, typically one of luxuriously fitted."

    Posative things first- amazing view,location, parking, beds and sofas really comfortable. Well furnished, balcony loved that, specially my grandaughter. Showers are great. The negative parts which would made the holiday fabulous and special. Carpets need replacing or Professionally cleaned as dirty. Gripper rods from kitchen floor tiles to carpet need sorting as not nice when trodden on, spikes sticking through. Dirty under recliner, hair on toilet, toilet roll holders need to be putting on straight one pointing upwards and the other downward angle. Toilet brush holder need cleaning . Smart TV advertised is not the sitting room TV but a bedroom TV. Have to move toaster to be able to use. Oven smells like old fryer oil when in use. One of the Freezer draws has a whole in it. Vacuum cleaner when we went to use it, the brush part was full of hair, had to remove this to use. Could only have a shallow bath as runs out of hot water so is lukewarm. Would be good if there was more work top space in kitchen. Ceiling fans in bathroom need cleaning as full of dust, toilet brush dusty. Wall need refreshing up with paint. Some blackout curtains or blind in the beds rooms would be good. Hooks that were stuck to doors which have come off either replace or remove the sticky pads left on doors. Window in double room made a loud noise when opened and felt like it was coming of hinges, so closed and never opened again. These things make a big difference and If sorted out we would rebook. I do have photos if these are need.

  • "A lovely stay, great ‘home from home’ accommodation, with everything you need."

    The spacious apartment was clean and comfortable, but what makes it so special is it’s position. From the balcony, I loved watching the boats go by and the people enjoying their holiday. It’s the perfect location for the beach, shops and plentiful restaurants. Thank you to the owners for the useful information provided, we used it quite a bit. I really hope we can return again sometime soon.

  • "We are leaving our holiday today."

    We have had a good time and found the location of our holiday fabulous. How ever the apartment did not live up to expectations. The code to the door from the garage into the apartment was not listed in the key collection instructions. I did find it on an email. The decor of the apartment is very tired and looks quite tatty in places. There was no WiFi or broadband which was advertised would not have booked if known. The apartment was not clean in areas please see attached photos. The ensuite toilet flush was broken as was the bin in the kitchen. We did not cook in the apartment as prefer to eat out but some of the cooking pans were not clean please see pictures. Found the check in at 1600hrs very inconvenient taking away from first day of our holiday. This is a shame as the apartment is lovely but not to the standard I expected or paid for.

  • "We have stayed here several times as has my daughter."

    Perfect location and very comfortable but disappointed that necessary maintenance is not done even after we report it and the faults are easily (and cheaply) fixable. The pedal bin still doesn’t operate, the bathroom door handle is still falling off, the bathroom door hinges need oil, cups are stained and some are chipped. This visit we were 4 adults yet only two small toilet rolls are provided which was inadequate. There was only one bath mat for two bathrooms. We noticed that the two single beds had mattress protectors but not the main bed - not sure if this is intentional.

  • "What a perfect place to be, a nice spacious apartment with a great view in to the harbourside and to the opening of the bridge."

    It was a bit noisy in the late evening/night by the people walking on the street, but with the windows clossed that helped a lot. Would advise to add more cutlery and crockery, as that was a bit low and the pan's where to small to cook for 4 persons. At the otherhand it was a good reason to go out and have dinner in the great dining options throughout Weymouth.

  • "Lovely flat, nice, clean and comfortable."

    Very spacious. Plenty of kitchen utensils etc, A catch on the bedroom windows to stop them swaying back & forth when open is needed. Flat is in a great position for the Town, shops, restaurants etc, but the noise at night was dreadful.

  • "The apartment was in a great location with amazing views."

    It was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The parking was an added bonus. Had everything you could need and want for your stay. Two suggestions that would improve the apartment would be darker curtains in the main bedroom and a full length mirror in the hall. Two negatives - all floorboards were very noisy. Felt sorry for the person below us. Some rooms were beginning to look a bit tired and for a "penthouse apartment' are in need of a coat of paint. Instructions were clear and concise on how to gain access to the car park and building.

  • "Its a great apartment in an ideal location."

    Only a couple of 'blips' Entry system is a little confusing for a newbie. We helped two other couples staying in the apartments navigate the system. The carpets in the apartment could do with a little livening The fittings in the bathrooms need securing. There is no dish washer so no need to provide tablets. Lots of excess glass wear which leaves you only one small cupboard to put food in. Everything else is a plus. It is in a great location. It is warm and clean. Parking is a real bonus especially I imagine in the warmer months. (just need to make sure the cleaner for other apartments uses the bay they are cleaning. Its not the easiest space to play chess in

    The apartment was well furnished and comfortable. I have marked you down on cleanliness due to the fact that we found dirty dishes in the cupboards and the drains smelt when using the washing machine. Nice wide doors for my wife's wheelchair but the railings outside on steps to front door were not secure and there was a large step into the shower.

    The apartment was very nice but shame about the creaky floorboards as it made it hard to walk around in the morning while people were sleeping. The facilities were good and location is great plus great view of watching the boats go by while sitting on the balcony. The only downside was the fact we had to defrost the freezer but expect from that it was a great weekend away and very peaceful. If I go to Weymouth again I would try to book the apartment again.

    Plenty of pubs, restaurants and shops. A little noisy at the weekend, but the description mentioned that.

Good location for visiting Swanage, Lulworth Cove, the Swannery and Lyme Regis.

    Only disadvantage was there was only one key which could have made it difficult as we all wanted to come and go separately. This was soon resolved by the agents who managed to contact the owners to source us another one. Lovely location as the town bridge outside regularly opened to let the little boats out. Very close to a medium sized Tesco (2 minute walk) and lots of places to eat. Flat was beautiful though some very creaky doors ( including the fridge!) that need sorting! Only negative thing was the plumbing/water pressure meant only one shower could be used at a time. I would love to stay here again.

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!
