I popped down to Weymouth for an evening to meet up with some old friends. The room was lovely; spacious and clean with a large bathroom and a wonderful view of the sea front. You can see why they have been given an AA award for their breakfasts; high quality, locally sourced produce which is a real cut above the... More

Arrived to the warmest of welcomes from Rob. Both he and his wife are the true stars of the business .They run the friendliest of establishments and yet keep a professional finger on the pulse of this super small hotel. Breakfasts beat many a 5 star Hotel .

We wandered along the seafront in Weymouth the other night, looking at all the old regency buildings which are now hotels. Most of them look a bit tired and in need of Alex Polizzi, but there was one with rather pretty bay trees with fairy lights on them, and we chose it because it looked a bit more inviting. We... More

My partner and I only stayed for one night while visiting friends in Weymouth though I would have happily booked for longer if required. Our room was lovely and clean with a lovely newly fitted and very spacious bathroom. Both Rob and his wife were warm and welcoming and the breakfast was lovely. The position of the hotel is perfect... More

Rob was an amazing host! Exceptionally friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Rooms were clean and breakfast was great! A short 5 minute walk to the heart of the city. We did a mini road trip of the UK and out of all of our stays we wished we would have spent more time in Weymouth. Durdle Door (Jurassic Coast Arch) is... More

A friend and I stayed in the Belvedere room over Saturday night, comfiest bed I've ever stayed in from what I remember. Our rooms were immaculate and our bathroom was gleaming. Rob was very welcoming and gave us great advice on where to find a good steak in Weymouth and he was not wrong. The lounge/honesty bar was a convenient... More

Rob and Terri Cole were wonderful hosts when 18 of our WI Family and Friends Walkers stayed at The Esplanade for a weekend in March. They were extremely helpful and welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. The rooms were clean and the table and bed linen was of excellent quality. They are doing a great job of bringing the... More

We stayed on the top floor with our 3 grandchildren. The room needs some TLC. As I am Lettie's of spiders, the room had so many I just couldn't sleep, spent most of the night going outside. Breakfast was good. The owner wasn't on site to meet us, keys left for us to collect. I understand he wanted to spent... More

Thank you for taking the time to kindly leave me a review with regard to your stay in October last year. I am bitterly disappointed that you did not seem to enjoy yourself and am equally disappointed that you did not bring any of this to my attention during your stay. Your feedback is vitally important to me and I... More

Ideally located for all local attractions and amenities, it is close to the town centre, the harbour and the beautiful golden sands of Weymouth Beach. Set against the unforgetable backdrop of Weymouth Bay and the internationally famous, World Heritage Coastline of 'The Jurassic Coast', The Esplanade is a haven for those wanting peace and relaxation beside the sea as well as those seeking a more activity based seaside experience.Boasting off-road parking, The Esplanade also eliminates the necessity of finding a parking space after a hard day of sightseeing, or lounging on the beach.
