Our 2 days Stay at Kelston Guest House was very enjoyable thanks to Karen et Simon's welcoming. We appreciated the very good and fresh english breakfast, the cleanliness and service faultlessly and the advices and recommendations for visiting Weymouth and Portland.

My parents stayed at the Kelston 21-28 July. And they had "one of their best ever holidays"! Accommodation was lovely & clean, tea tray replenished daily - even an additional fan placed in room as the weather was beautiful. Breakfast was lovely, especially the scrambled eggs! Karen seems to go the extra mile for her guests - mum & dad... More

Used Tripadvisor's customer ratings to select the Kelston Guest House for a short holiday over a seaview much dearer one, and must admit, it lives up to it's top rating. Cleanliness spot on, breakfast most enjoyable, service from both Karen and Martin second to none, best in Weymouth. Mind, you will not see Kelston on the "Hotel Inspector" tv programme,... More

We had a nice stay at the guesthouse, friendly and helpfull hosts. Good breakfast. Perfect location for trips to Portland, Abbotsbury, Corfe Castle, Durdle Door, Jurrasic coast, Poole etc. The Weimouth beach was only two minutes walk from the guesthouse, perfect.
