This place was so terrible it actually got funny. Booked as an overnight stay for myself and two colleagues during a recent business trip. I'm sure it's better during the summer months but you expect a certain level of service when paying good money. The staff were surly and disinterested. The beer was terrible in the bar. The whole place... More

I recently stayed for a 1 night cheap getaway over a weekend with my partner and got exactly what we paid for. Let's not beat about the bush here, this wasn't my normal read into every review and detail before booking, it was late in the week and I typed "cheap hotels in Weymouth" into Google and on the 'sort'...

Some years ago I worked at this hotel for Pontins. We were due an overnight stay, and decided it would be quirky to stay here. After booking (£65 including Breakfast) I read the reviews on here, there were some shockers, so as you can imagine we were expecting the worst. What we got however was far different from the reviews.... More

Just stayed two nights, staff were mostly friendly and breakfast was great. Room was a little basic but £65 for a double room with a sea view so no real complaints. Pool and Sauna included in price too. Had an evening meal which was nice but the beer wasn't too good. Overall a pleasant stay and we will return.

Stayed here for one night between Xmas and New Year in room 250. Lovely view which was the only good thing about the hotel. Room was clean but very cold as they have just one electric heater available in the room. Bed was rock hard with a very cheap mattress and topper (work for a mattress manufacturer so I know... More

Stayed overnight for the New Year. A party had been organised 50s and 60s themed. The DJ played until the early hours and a delicious buffet was served. An added attraction was being able to see the Weymouth beach fireworks from the Bay View Room which has an amazing outlook over the whole of Weymouth Bay. Rooms very clean and... More

A disaster! A shambles! Terrible! The Christmas day lunch was £59.95 for champagne and canapés on arrival followed by a three course meal finishing with coffee and mince pies. We were shown to our table which was beautifully decorated in the Ocean Room overlooking the sea, marvellous views. The waitress came to take our order but we said we would... More

Breakfast is ok, rooms are clean, neat and up to date. Hotel facilities are poor throughout. The whole property is in desperate need of some serious investment, TLC and redecoration. Even the lit up hotel name is down to R-I-V-I. "Sea view" is a big claim as the one poxy window looks out onto the shared balcony/hallway. The door rattles... More
