On the long drive to Portland the weather was very wet and wild. Just the time you need a cosy central room to recover. I was please I'd booked a room with a view. I could watch the busy port in the rain and see the power of the Southern Ocean roll overhead. Wow! My only slight niggle was our... More

Hi JaneB82, we're glad to hear you enjoyed your recent stay. We really do have such a beautiful and interesting outlook with the Portland harbour constantly changing - today the weather is clear, the sea is flat and we've had dolphins in the harbour! We are currently working on new menus in our restaurant and look forward to having something... More

We came back to Portland specifically to visit the cafe for a meal as last visit 3 years ago was pleasant. This visit was less than impressive. Service was non existent, food average and overpriced and when staff want to talk about you they should know not to nod in your direction and both look. Very disappointed.

stayed here on the basis of the reviews. The bed has zero firmness and we got almost zero sleep. Very annoying. Yes the motel is neat and clean. But it is dated probably from the 70s or 80s. I could live with all that. But on the basis of a shocking bed, i would never stay here again. We got... More

Hello 821george I can advise that we have thoroughly inspected all of our beds following your comments. Like yourself, we appreciate the importance of a good night's sleep and apologise that this was not what you experienced. Had we been aware of the issue at any time through your stay a room change would most definitely have been offered. The... More

Just about another 12 mths is over and another 12 mths staying at the Henty. Nothing has changed about this hotel. Still as good as it was some 5 years ago when I first started to stay here. For all who visits Portland I strongly recommend this hotel. Cheers.

we had stayed at this hotel many years ago and were on the last leg home after travelling for 15 days. We hadn't booked ahead but on arrival at the reception, we were very warmly greeted and given what I considered the best room at this property. It was on the first floor and had a wonderful view across the... More

stay a couple of months ago and we both really enjoyed or stay. We have booked in again for another weekend coming up. We stayed in the front rooms with sea views and small front sitting area. Not the cheapest place to stay but centrally located and walking distance everywhere which eliminated taxi fares when having a drink or two

The rooms on street front offer amazing views (perfect for reading a book with a coffee or just watching the comings and goings of our busy working port).

The hotel is close to the wharf and the main port is across the bay offering good view for the guests The rooms are clean, the door locks are still with a normal old fashioned key - so remember to lock to door behind you. The internet work BUT just works - not very fast.
