stayed at the rex last weekend for three days .The hotel has a nice position on the sea front. We found the staff very helpful, the hotel is quite near to the ferry terminal. Our room was adequate it was always kept very clean, towels changed every day. The problem for us was that our room overlooked the pub at... More

Felt like stepping back in time walking in. In a good way. Old style traditional place. Lovely warm welcome. Room perfectly adequate, nothing amazing but great value. Far from brand new bathroom but spotless and perfectly functional. Really friendly staff, proper bar as well. Breakfast really good, proper sausages and tasty black pudding. Would happily return

We stayed here two nights for the Seafood Festival. Very friendly, relaxing and what an excellent location. The only negative thing we would like to say is that a table for two in the restaurant for breakfast really isn't big enough with all the plates, cups, saucers, tea and coffee pots etc., plus we were put in a cubby hole,...

Slightly dated, but a decent hotel and the staff were fantastic - helpful and friendly. Food from the restaurant was good for breakfast and dinner and the hotel is in a great location right on the sea front. Worth arranging a spot in their garage for parking if you can. Beds were a little hard and there was a fair... More

Have just spend a lovely weekend in Weymouth staying at Hotel Rex, no complaints from us. The staff were friendly, rooms very comfortable & great sea view from room 29. Breakfast was lovely. We paid £8 per day for garage parking which was well worth the money

This hotel is in a great location, a short walk from the beach in one direction and the harbour in the other. Room was clean and good size. Breakfast was good and the staff were helpful. Particular mention for the young guy serving at breakfast who was very efficient and helpful. The hotel is slightly old fashioned but most are... More

Stayed over night with my partner back in December so we could do our christmas shopping and also have a night away from the children. Hotel looks great from the outside, but a little dated inside. Staff were friendly, room was ok - no real complaints, just could do with some updating as looked a little 'tired' On the plus... More

I've just scrolled down the first page of this hotels reviews and I'm amazed at how good they all are. I must have been really, really unlucky. My partner and I stayed here last year for our first night away alone in 6 years. After having two children. We were naturally very much looking forward to it. The problems unfortunately... More

Called in here B&B for a fishing overnight in May. Right on the front and will give you a parking permit for overnight on the front if you can find a space. Take note that the spaces reserved for buses are available till 8am WITH the official permits. The room was basic and very clean. Nice bar and the menu... More
