We had the pleasure of lunch in the Bistro on Sunday 7th Feb 2016. A group of 16, we were treated so well, nothing was too much trouble, our waitress was lovely, friendly, quick and attentive service. The food was very good and reasonably priced. Of course the views are stunning, some of our guests had never been there, but... More

I have not stayed in this hotel but always stop here for brunch during my day-trips to Dorset. The hotel has got amazing views. One can easy spend around 3 hours here just enjoying t he view and enjoying yummy brunch in there restaurant. Loved the mushroom soup, Caesar salad and pasta. Servers good coffee too!

Try to stay here on regular basis, the view's fabulous, walking and exploring the area well worth it. The rooms and staff really good, food and facilities lovely. Always a shame to leave. Whatever time of the year it has always been worth the distance to go.

A very helpful and friendly staff. The breakfast /restaurant room has amazing views of the sea and chesil beach. The bedroom was spacious and comfortable with replenished tea/coffee/biscuit tray. We even received a box of chocolate biscuits Christmas day. Lovely!

The foyer is very impressive with giant fossils and marble.. We had lunch up in the bar/restaurant area.. That was slightly less plush, more like the Overlook Hotel.. Sandwiches were ordered. The coronation chicken was bland. Views AWSOME

As advertised, The Heights is 365 feet above sea level. We arrived on a very windy night, and were told by Reception to expect a late night Xmas disco for two large parties. As we value peace and quiet, it wasn't looking good. Fortunately, we'd stayed once before, so we knew which side of the hotel was to the windward,... More

Thank you for your comments. We are delighted that your stay was an enjoyable one. We are pleased that our Reception team were able to advise you about potential disturbance, however we always try to minimise this by allocating rooms according to availability.

I'm from Portland and apart from my engagement party being held here way back in 1986, I can't believe it was that long ago and the odd couple of afternoon teas I've enjoyed I've not actually stayed at the hotel.
