we absolutely love this hotel friendly staff rooms are kept spotlessly clean, well stocked on tea and coffee and refilled daily. I would highly recommend a sea view room, to wake up with a view of Weymouth sea front just beautiful. Location is excellent we only stayed bed and breakfast but the choice of evening meal is available. Breakfast is... More

We stayed in room 2 a balcony room for 6 nights from the 22 June. The view is stunning from the balcony and it is nice to sit on it and people watch. The room was narrow but was fine for us. The room was very clean with comfy beds and tea making facilities. The room has a small ensuite... More

We stayed overnight at this hotel and were pleased with the level of service. The reception give you a parking permit (with a £200 refundable deposit) and we were lucky enough to always find a space outside the hotel. Our room was at the top of the hotel with a great view of the esplanade and beach. (don't leave the... More

Used this hotel as a base for walking round the Dorset coast and no complaints from us. In truth we would have given it 3.5 stars but there were lots of good points. The free permit parking scheme is excellent and nice to have a bar open until late for a nightcap after dinner. Our room was quite small and... More

I stayed at this hotel recently whilst performing for one night at the Pavilion Theatre. To start with the positives - the location is good and the hotel offers free parking permits (although you do have to drive around the streets to find a space) plus the staff were friendly and welcoming on arrival. Our room was clean but small... More

Stayed here last week on a coach holiday. Prime position for beach and shops. We were all treated as 'individual ' guests, unlike on some coach holidays!. The Hotel was clean, the staff very friendly and helpful. Heating in room, if needed. The food was excellent, varied and plentiful. There was entertainment some evenings which was great, although unfortunately not... More

Oh dear, where to start. Okay, the staff were very friendly indeed and the room was clean and the Hotel was a stone's throw from the Beach. Our room was priced at £80.00 per night. If it were priced accordingly at say £45.00 we would know what to expect and so wouldn't mind. However, from the initial entering of the... More

Spent two nights at the Rex. The hotel is a bit old but it is spotlessly clean. Staff were very helpful and fun, making everyone feel welcome. The hotel was very busy and staff treated everyone as if they were the most important guest in the hotel. They all went the extra mile for guests. The staff are this hotels... More
