  • "The loo was difficult to flush, sometimes it did it but most of the time it didn't want too."

    Under the sofas hadn't seen a hoover for a while. On the plus side the flat was very comfortable and the shower was very good. The kitchen had everything you needed to cook a meal, The view was brilliant not just the sea but great for people watching

  • "Leaking radiator in the bathroom and the WiFi was appalling."

    Using a ‘Post Office’ router, which are terrible and basic, with a speed of about 7.8mbps. The WiFi kept dropping off regularly and the hotel next had better WiFi as we kept picking up their signal. The speed shows that they are on basic ADSL speed and not Fttc (FTTP not available for the address) hence the slow speed. It became unusable.

  • "We thought the property was very well presented."

    The initial photos looked excellent when we decided to book our holiday. On arrival we were equally impressed with the overall appearance, comfort and cleanliness, a very enjoyable experience.

  • "A beautiful apartment with everything that we needed and more."

    Perfect location and the parking space was a massive bonus. The apartment was beautifully designed and the selection of games, toys, books and DVD’s really was appreciated. The only problem we did have was only 1 set of keys, but we used the keysafe daily.

    It was just as we remembered, fabulous in every way. The location, the views, the apartment itself. Comfortable, clean and with everything you need for a family holiday.

  • "Absolutely lovely apartment."

    It was so thoughtfully furnished and such a breath of fresh air to have so many items that are suitable for families. Perfect location for the beach and for looking out to sea over a morning coffee. Totally gorgeous.

  • "It’s a lovely apartment and we regularly stay in it."

    It’s well maintained and cleanliness has improved. The dble bed bedroom would really improve if : a) the beside bed lockers weren’t so unstable and the lights were reading lights a) the duvet is a bit shabby & tired looking. Otherwise, a nice flat to stay in & we’ve booked again for next year.

  • "A well appointed accommodation with lovely sea views."

    Overall a very comfortable stay. Suggest, extra toilet roll, include a kitchen roll and a waste paper basket in the lounge. Also suggest additional instructions to get to parking area via Astrid Way and Crescent Street and state parking slot outside 30A.

  • "We had an amazing time at Wessex View."

    It’s perfectly situated for those with young children. Everything on the doorstep. The accommodation is clean, the kitchen is very well equipped. I would 100% book again and have no hesitation in recommending to others.

  • "Well positioned (on the Esplanade next to the beach) and well equipped with everything you might need."

    Victorian ambience with wooden window shutters rather than curtains. Sleeping is at the rear thereby avoiding the road noise (only disadvantage of being on the front). Single car parking slot at the rear of the property was closer than I had anticipated. Some late noise from the Bingo hall area on friday late. Unfortunately we left a carrier bag of presents behind (inexplicitly) and are in the process of trying to recuperate it.

  • "Great location, very central, lounge was a lovely space - views out to see were brilliant."

    Due to central siting it can be noisy at night time with revellers. Not completely clean on arrival; fridge had old milk stains in the door, there was a popped balloon under the sofa. Mattresses need new protectors on them. Lock to flat door was faulty and worn, any key could open it (we even had success with our house key). Called owner to report, it was replaced the day we vacated.

  • "We had a lovely week."

    The flat was very clean and had everything we needed and plenty of space for the two of us. The seaview is a big plus. The only disappointments were that it stands on a very busy road, though maybe we shouldn't have been surprised, given its location, and that we couldn't get wifi in the twin bedroom, neither of which would stop us staying again as we loved being so close to the sea for our morning dips.

  • "We loved the comfortable and spacious living room with the beautiful windows overlooking the esplanade."

    As we are from landlocked Sheffield the sea views were a delight. The apartment was well equipped and very clean. Unfortunately, the area suffered a power cut on Christmas Day which lasted over 5 hours. Our call to Graham (on the number supplied with our arrival information) at 4pm on Christmas Day afternoon was answered promptly and he was able to tell us where to find batteries for the flame less candles - much appreciated! We loved our two week stay in Wessex View and would happily stay again. Charlotte & Paul.

  • "Wessex View is a lovely apartment."

    Great central location with parking. It has a comfortable living room with a beautiful view of the bay. Furnishings are fine and it has a good useable kitchen. The double bed in the main bedroom was pretty uncomfortable, to the point where we will bring our own bed topper next time we visit. Overall, it's a lovely apartment but let down by the bed quality.

    Hi Patricia, thank you for your feedback. We have now added memory foam mattress toppers to all the mattresses in the property. Hopefully this will make them more comfortable when you stay with us in the future. Property Owner

  • "The lounge was stunning, bathroom/ kitchen fine."

    Main Bedroom totally inadequate, there was little room to move around, there were No drawers. Therefore two elderly people had to live out of suitcases. The area supposed to be a wardrobe was an area with a curtaiin covering it , in an alcove. The rail was so high only one person could reach it.. The twin bedroom was again without a chest of drawers. One small drawer in bedside cabinet and a small drawer in a dressing table. The wardrobe was an opening in the wall which contained a baby cot, mattress and a high chair, it did however have a hanging rail.

  • "Excellent location, just across the road from the beach and short walk to the town/harbour."

    So many beautiful walking routes close by. The view of the sea from the lounge was amazing. The apartment was comfortable with good facilities. Off road car parking was definitely a bonus. The only negative for us was the lack of windows in the bedrooms, having said that, this would not prevent us from booking here again as the positives far out way this negative.

  • "We thought the flat was in brilliant location, so close to the beach, town and facilities."

    It was nicely furnished with beautiful large windows. We really enjoyed the sea views. It was great to have a car park space too. We did however have an issue with noise nuisance from one of the neighbours to the rear of the property. At night when going to bed we could hear television or maybe computer games coming from one of the flats and it sometimes went on until the early hours of the morning. It wouldn't have been considered loud in the day time but was a real nuisance when trying to get to sleep. I ended up sleeping in the lounge for a number of nights. My husband is deaf in one ear so could put his good ear on the pillow and get off to sleep. The first couple of nights were fine and we thought the nuisance might be a one off when it occurred but it continued for the rest of the week. It was difficult to report as we couldn't work out where the sound was coming from. The arrangement to the back of the flat is fairly complicated and there are many buildings. It was only when we were packing the car to leave on Saturday morning that we could hear the noise again and see that it appeared to be coming from the first floor flat at the back. There was a window open and this was near the window of the main bedroom of our flat where we had been sleeping.

    We loved the feel of that huge living room overlooking the beach with the sun beaming through those huge windows when you walk into the room first thing in the morning. Also the location is perfect, we both agreed we could not have picked a better place to spend our week.

  • "The flat itself is fantastic and the photos almost didn’t do justice to the setting and spectacular view of the bay from the living room windows."

    Our stay was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our time in the flat. Only thing I wanted to mention: the WiFi password is written down wrong in the guest book. I managed to figure out how to get online by looking at the back of the router but you might want to change it in the book!

The property

Experience stunning sea views from this beautifully presented ground-floor apartment, Wessex View, located in the popular seaside resort of Weymouth in Dorset.

It enjoys a prime position on the esplanade, just a few moments from the golden, sandy beach.

The accommodation lies all on one level, aside from some steps leading down into the twin bedroom, and is suited best to a family of four or perhaps a couples break.

Upon entering, be greeted by a grand and spacious hallway, leading into the large living room/diner, where attractive sash windows offer beautiful views of the sea outside, and create a light, bright atmosphere.

Settle on one of the vibrant yet classic teal chesterfield sofas, beneath the sparkling chandelier and above the real wood flooring, you can flick on the TV and watch a favourite programme.

Behind this area is the dining table, perfect for serving up a feast made in the excellent kitchen which adjoins this room via folding doors, with plenty of workspace to create delicious dishes with quality appliances.

Freshen up in the sleek and fully tiled bathroom, choose to have a long soak in the tub or a speedy shower to start your day well.

Rest in one of the two bedrooms, with the master double bedroom enjoying a beautiful stained glass backdrop, and a feature fireplace, while the second bedroom is a delightful twin room.

Wessex View quite arguably enjoys one of the best locations in Weymouth, being right on the shoreline and within walking distance of all the bustling shops, restaurants and local boutiques that invite you in to browse and dine and indulge while on your holiday.

Grab an ice cream and go to watch the old-fashioned Punch & Judy show, or tuck into fish and chips at the old historic harbour as you watch the world go by.

Wessex view offers a fabulous seaside escape on the delightful Weymouth shorefront.
