Long ago learned NOT to project expectations fed by North American standards to English hotels, but this the truth behind this generalization has faded somewhat in the past few years... not here though. Typical British seaside town property in need of new furniture, and paint job. Finding room to place my suitcase on something other than the bed was tough.... More

A friendly hotel right opposite the sea front. Behind the hotel is the labarinth of streets with shops galore, from brand names to little independents offering an array of goods. The staff are extreamly friendly and helpful. The Rex is clean and tidy. With such a prime location comes the draw back of the outside streets being a little noisy... More

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 in Hotel Rex for three nights on June 25/26/27 for our annual trip to Tank Fest In Bovington near Weymouth, we usually stay in Travel lodge or Premier Inn but both are now way to expensive so we tried Hotel Rex and were very happy with our stay, can only speak for my own room with sea view...

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
