Spent a Saturday night with my wife in April. Good location, and very helpful members of staff. We had a nice breakfast, and the lady helped throughout the time. Room was nice, clean and tidy. We had an ocean view room. Room price was reasonable. They have a restaurant and other takeaway restaurants are nearby, too, 3/4 within around half...

We stayed here while participating in a climbing course nearby. A little worn in places, but money is being spent and it looks like they're working to step up their game, so for the price there are no complaints. Staff couldn't have been more helpful, and the breakfast cafe watching the divers get their kit ready made a nice start...

The hotel is quite a nice place to stay. Breakfast was good and plentiful. The room was clean with a comfy bed. The shower was a little bit small, not a big door to get in. Staff were pleasant and helpful.

Hi lkrmusic - thanks for letting us know about your stay. It's an interesting point about the shower. We have range of different ones in the hotel, some square, some curved and some with baths, so naturally some are larger than others. If anyone reading this is concerned about shower-space, call us when you book and we'll try and allocate...

Good home cooked food and very fair prices. We returned early from a muddy bike ride around the Island and dropped in for a sandwich and cuppa. They even offered to let us sit inside covered in mud but we declined and instead they provided towels for us to sit on outside. Great hospitality and open at 07:30 hours on...

Right from when we walked in the staff were amazing Elliott the barman is a very polite chap and nothing is to much trouble for him. Angel is great too and a good chef. Everyone says that it's basic. It is a little but the price reflects that. It's clean tidy and the shower is great. The food is reasonably...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)

We are also a stones throw from Henry IIIV's Portland Castle and Chesil Beach, and Weymouth is just a short drive away. Whether you are here for business or pleasure, the Aqua is an ideal base, offering a warm welcome and plenty of local knowledge to help you make the most of your visit. Breakfast and lunch is available from Angel and her team in The Aqua Cafe. Or why not unwind in the evening with a drink and a meal in our Wreck Bar?
