My husband and 2 year old daughter arrived in Weymouth without anywhere booked - well out of our comfort zone! After knocking on various guest houses and finding they either wouldn't accommodate just a one night stay or a didn't have a family room, the Rex told us that their sister hotel may be able to help. We were greeted... More

Very pleased with our stay. The service was excellent; the receptionist was very pleasant and promptly made arrangements to change rooms for my elderly mother. The breakfasts were really generous and again the staff were helpful and pleasant. The rooms are easily accessible by lift. What is more, it is a perfect location, next to the beach. Highly recommended.

Love this place, stayed here to recover after an appalling nights weekend trying to sleep at the Nook Guest House on the Esplanade above the Clubs. (Which I do not recommend). Was very comfortable, large high standard rooms - staff were nice, breakfast was lovely. Wasn't a fan of the eggs on greasy fried bread but apart from that ok.... More

This hotel has a good location, right in the centre of Weymouth, within walking distance of bus/ train stations, local restaurants, pubs/clubs and the beach/ harbour. The room was of good standard, clean and all appliances in good working order. My only criticism is that the window was single glazed and not soundproof, and as the room faced a street... More

Had booked for an overnight stay before I read the reviews. Our experience was good. At £63 we did not expect much but our experience made this very good value. The room was clean, smart and comfortable. Reception were very friendly and did explain the situation re: parking at the time of booking. They arranged on-street parking for us. The... More

I was weary at first, taking my lil princess away for the first time but the staff were really good and I can't thank them enough for the service we received! Great location,... More

The fairhaven is in an excellent location, just a short walk to town and across the road from the beach. The hotel was dated but clean with fresh towels every day. Breakfast was disappointing but staff in the resteraunt were friendly and accomodating. However we were able to hear other guests moving around upstairs and were woken up in the... More

Stayed at the Fairhaven this weekend, I can honestly say it is the worst hotel / hostel I have ever stayed in. First of all you we went to the central hotel (which is its sister hotel) to ask for directions to the car park for the Fairhaven. We were met by what i can only say was a lady... More
