This B & B is 'Spot on' because it's right at the beach and the back rooms face the harbour. Beach, boats, rides, shops and food are all metres away. The bay is a safe place for young children to paddle or swim and there is real sand. It is the quintessential seaside holiday place.

The team at the B&B are always friendly and willing to makes guests as welcome as possible, rooms have great views with those at the front looking over the beach and those at the rear looking over the harbour.

The truth of the matter is that we actually told this guest to leave, as oppose to her leaving early, and as a way of getting back has written this review. My wife spent hours chatting with this guest in the lounge and she was quite happy, unfortunatley she complained about every guesthouse she had stayed in in Weymouth saying...
