A great location with very helpful and attentive staff. We used the hotel's garage for parking which was a godsend as parking on the seafront is very very difficult! Breakfast was absolutely fine, with plenty to choose from. The rooms were a bit faded and past their best, but clean and adequate. We only stayed one night and would be... More

Lots of other reviews have mentioned the décor being old and dated, we stopped in room 1 and it looked like the room had been newly refurbished, we paid a little extra for a balcony which was a waste of money really as you couldn't use the balcony it just gave you a sea view. We didn't eat an evening... More

We stayed here for one night on our 30 wedding anniversary. When I rang to book room I told them it was our wedding anniversary. We had a lovely room on 3rd floor, room 25. We had a lovely view from window and could also see part of the harbour also. The bar was very friendly and to our surprise... More

I have just returned from a two night winter break, booked last minute as a treat/cheer up. I had a single room with a sea view, and whilst the room was small, it was clean and cosy and had a lovely view out to sea and the glorious beach. I ate in the Hotel for one night of my stay,... More

We stayed at the hotel rex for 2 nights. The hotel is ideally situated and it's a lovely hotel. The breakfast was very good and it's a 2 hour window so you can have a bit of a lie in if you choose and you don't feel rushed at all. They have a very nice bar also. The staff were... More

Stayed one night at this hotel prior to an early start on a coach trip to Scotland. An excellent service throughout. The room was well furnished and overlooked Weymouth Bay. We had a meal in the restaurant in the evening, the menu was very good and varied. The staff were very helpful, we had an early call at 0400 from... More

Stayed at The Rex for 3 nights midweek. From the moment we walked in we were warmly welcomed. We hadn't booked, but a room was immediately available, which was clean and warm! We stayed in room 29 a family room for two of us, so it was lovely and spacious, with a great seaview. All the staff were friendly and... More
