  • "Good points."

    Beds were very comfortable. Good central location Free parking about 15 mins from property. Secure outside area. Negative points The place is tired and needs some updating. I had to clean the place on arrival as floors ad surfaces dirty. Sofas in lounger very, very uncomfortable. Hot water very, very slow out of the upstairs which rules a soak in the bath out. No trays or clothes pegs Could not turn heating off until I finally found the instructions on day 3 (the boiler / thermostat instructions were not with the main pack of instructions but on the top of a shelf in another cupboard) Changed batteries in the TV Remote so hopefully no further complaints on that issue

  • "The Settee is of the LOWEST quality and comfort I have ever experienced."

    Decor was OK but a bit low quality. Shower and rest of facilities were good. Plenty of room and comfy bed. But the location is not great either. We had people sat outside the accommodation taking drugs.

The popular resort of Weymouth makes an outstanding year-round holiday destination, with a wide variety of attractions on offer, appealing to all tastes and ages. The glorious golden sandy beaches have excellent facilities for all kinds of watersports, whilst from the picturesque, bustling harbour you can take regular fishing trips. A short drive takes you to Portland Harbour, and the rugged “Isle” of Portland, linked to Weymouth by the dramatic Chesil Beach. Visit Dorchester, Thomas Hardy’s “Casterbridge”, only 7 miles away, or take a journey along the scenic coastal road and call in at Abbotsbury Swannery and Subtropical Gardens. Alternatively, just head down to West Bay - the views of the stunning Dorset Heritage Coastline are not to be missed!
