My father, son (aged 8) and I stayed for two nights during August. When we arrived we were told our rooms were in fact in separate buildings! My fathers room was in the main part of the hotel and was adequate, however the room my son and I were staying in was in a block of flats at the back... More

As we arrived for our three night stay we were greeted by weed infested lawns, driveway and gardens. The main drive (one way system) was blocked by a wedding party taking photographs. There was a garden chair dangling from some stair railings.(Still there three days later) Into reception where a light fitting was dangling from a screwdriver speared into the... More

We booked for three nights bed and breakfast in October 2014, looking online at the photos of the hotel and bedrooms were extremely miss leading, as when we arrived the hotel looked in need of some serious TLC. When we went to our room, we were completely disappointed as the room we were given was nothing like the rooms we... More

Hotel in great need of investment. Building and rooms need refreshing. No phones in some rooms from storm damage in early part of 2014. We booked two rooms but upon arrival found them to be far apart and in very different parts of the hotel. Despite being notified well in advance they could not cope with gluten free diet need....

Woken early most mornings as other guests sat outside their rooms have an early morning fag and chat - about 6.30am! Expensive breakfast - slow service. Fridge didn't work - firstly was told I hadn't turned it on long enough... Then was told they were phasing them out and didn't advertise them as some were broken - fortunately a working... More

Me and my girlfriend have stopped here twice now and both times we have had a great time. As most people will point out, the building on the outside could do with a little TLC..but it is a listed building. The hotel is a part of the Weymouth's Bowleaze cove area which has lovely stoney beach and some decent arcade... More

As a previous gym member I was really dissapointed to return for a workout last week. It was in an awful state, the mens lockers were all broken - not one worked! The treadmill was out of service (again!) the cross trainer did not work, in fact the free weights were the only thing worth using. Its a real shame... More

The Reception Staff were very friendly and helpful throughout our two night stay. We were put in the block behind the main hotel block you see in the pictures. I understand that these buildings were originally a holiday camp - I thought that the change of use to a hotel would have meant a complete revamp - however on going... More

Booked to stay for three nights but came home a day earlier in late September 2014. Was sooo disappointed with the hotel. Had to climb up an outside steep staircase to get to the room. No lift. Paper thin walls and the room smelt of disinfectant, yuk. Couldn't lock the safe, bedroom window was jammed open so was unable to... More
