We stayed for 2 nights in August. We were fortunate finding a car parking space easily but once parked we did not take out our car out again until we left-used the bus. Our room no 3 had a lovely view of the harbour. The breakfast was OK but not great. Could do with fruit and yoghurt as well as...

This is a fairly basic but welcoming B and B in a row of probably similar establishments,very friendly host, good breakfast and very clean throughout. Well situated with lovely views of the beach.

Great room and lovely warm shower. On the attic floor we had a single and double room 7 & 8. The shower for the single room...

Stayed for 2 nights in a single room on the top floor. Bathroom is separate on the floor below but it is your own private bathroom. Room itself is basic but has a beautiful sea view of the bay. And the location is excellent, literally 20 seconds from the beach and around the back you have the harbour/marina where you...

My daughter and I stayed here for a couple of days. Weymouth is a beautiful place. Our room was lovely; cosy and clean and overlooked the harbour directly which was fabulous. On the downside you could hear the people in the next room and the breakfast was average but not brilliant. It would be great to have a list of...

Upon arrival we were introduced to the resident dog, but had to ask the owner's name. Shown to our room on the top floor it looked ok, but we soon realised that the double bed was two singles. This and the lumpy unsupportive mattresses made for bad night's sleep. No hot water in shower and it only ran lukewarm at...
