Just returned from a three night Turkey and Tinsel break. Had a great time. Hotel staff were very friendly, food was lovely and weather very good for time of year. People sitting on the beach in December!!!

We booked in for two nights although we live only a short distance (Bournemouth) away. It was a pleasant break for my husband who is recovering fro an illness and we didn't want to be too far from home. The hotel staff were very helpful, polite and attentive. The first evening we chose just to have starters and the second... More

Stayed here for a night in November. Room was on the small size. However it was clean and the bed was comfy. Only complaint was the heating was on all night and it was very warm. Hotel was right on the sea front. For a £20 refundable deposit they gave you a parking permit. We were very lucky to get... More

Four of us stayed at The Rex and found it a great place for a weekend in Weymouth. The bedrooms were comfortable and clean but maybe a little tired. Great views of the bay and a really excellent breakfast with friendly service. We stayed in for dinner on the first night and we were all pleasantly surprised with the quality... More

I stayed for one night in November in a single room on 3rd floor. Great sea views. This hotel is in an old building so don't expect brand new fittings etc. in the rooms. The pricing reflects this. Tea and coffee facilities in the room (a fridge would be nice for milk etc.) Parking is a problem in this area,... More

Just returned from a 1night stop over in Weymouth staying at the Hotel Rex. Great location with views out to sea and very close to town centre. Staff were very helpful and friendly and although compact the room was perfectly adequate and clean and tidy. Full English breakfast was delicious. Would certainly recommend this hotel for a short break.

My group of 30 Townswomen's Guilds ladies have had another very successful short break at the Hotel Rex. It is a lovely place in which to unwind, the staff are always polite, cheerful and happy to help. As always the choice of meals were delicious. The added bonus for us as a group is the use of the hotels meeting... More

I would just like to say what a marvellous holiday we had in Weymouth recently. The hotel was absolutely superb we cannot fault anything at all. The room was brilliant, the food was excellent and well presented, freshly cooked (and hot) and a choice of meals. The staff were also excellent and could not be more helpful. The Manager also...

Very small seaview room and cold. Probably excellent in better weather. Good food for dinner and breakfast. Much better choices than many hotels. Had problem and had to cancel rest of our booking and was superbly dealt with by Sue who was most considerate and helpful in the situation.
