  • "Had a lovely few days at sail away."

    Added bonus was the parking permit for the swannery car park, this wasn't mentioned in the write up. The bed was super comfy and the sea views first thing in the morning were stunning. We would stay here again.

  • "Beautifully appointed apartment which would be enhanced by a coffee table on a rug in lounge."

    Reasonable value for money and fortunate to load/unload 50 yards away at unloading slot keeping aware of wardens. Excellent location and good help from Sykes when I forgot to put the second key symbol in the front door code on arrival. Rubbish on disposal was piled high in basement room

  • "Entance and stairwell totally uninviting."

    This did not give a good first impression. Fridge was not cleaned to a required standard especially given the COVID situation is still with us. The same could be said of the utensils. We found it strange that there was only one wine glass .The biggest disappointment however was the noise and disruption coming from the apartment above. We had interrupted sleep every night for a week which did not give us the relaxing stay we were so looking forward to .The noise was unbearable and included late night and early morning. Sometimes it was like someone was jogging on the spot!!!!!

  • "Location was excellent."

    Apartment was lovely. Only down side is the main communal stairway and entrance which sadly lets the place down. Unfortunate incident due to rain. Dreams cottages dealt with so professionally and were absolutely brilliant dealing with the situation.

  • "The flat was lovely and clean and had good equipment in it."

    A great location for shops, restaurants and the beach of course. Top tip is to book the restaurants a day in advance otherwise you have to take pot luck. I can highly recommend the Marlboro fish and chip shop near to the harbour, excellent food and service. We had a great time in Weymouth, it is quite windy there though so take a long sleeve top to the beach if you want to stay on the beach.

  • "The only good thing about this property is the fantastic views of the beach."

    It is in need of updating. The bed is so hard and uncomfortable, I slept on the sofa for a week.the wardrobes were antique and smelled horrible did not put my clothes in them, in fact I used nothing in the bedroom.the bathroom was old and a very noisy flush, I had to put my fingers in my ears every time I flushed. The living part had horrible pictures on the walls and was a miss match of furniture, could be so much nicer. The kitchen although it had lots of cupboards did not have a washing machine or a dishwasher. It had dent been cleaned properly, when I moved the rug to place it on the slight step up in the kitchen there was lots of sand under the rug, the table cloths hadn't been changed and was dirty, luckily I found a spare tablecloth in the ugly unit stuck in the living quarters

  • "The flat (second floor) is right on the sea front, just a few doors along from the famous clock, and I loved the view - watching the sun rise over the sea in the mornings in particular."

    If you drive, a parking permit is provided; and if not (like me), it's only two minutes walk from the railway station. The flat itself is smashing - well equipped and with the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in! I'll be going back - stayed April 2018

  • "Absolutely stunning flat."

    Beautifully decorated and furnished (the photos don't do it justice), and immaculately clean. In a perfect spot for easy and close access to everything Weymouth has to offer. But also quiet at night as bedroom in back. No problems with booking or finding the premises as good and complete access instructions given. Will definitely use again. The parking permit was also useful and saved a huge amount on parking fees - stayed August 2017

Sail Away has a generous master bedroom complete with a four-poster bed, in keeping with the feel of the Georgian town house.

An early morning leisurely walk along the beach taking in the fresh sea air with the sand between your toes is the perfect way to start your day, continue with a walk into town, just a few minutes away, for a spot of lunch in one of the numerous restaurants ranging from harbourside bistros specialising in provincial fresh fish to traditional fish and chips perfect to be eaten on the promenade or harbourside.

The other side of the town takes you to the beautiful Greenhill gardens and down to Bowleaze cove.

Leave your car parked and catch one of the many buses to explore the surrounding areas or catch the land train to the Sea Life centre.
