Don't be put off by the exterior appearance - it's very pleasant once you're inside! Place has a spacious feeling, if a bit dated in places. Excellent staff, very helpful and friendly. Decent bedroom/bathroom but VERY hot indeed, despite turning off the radiator. (No off knob on bathroom radiator). Fabulous views over Chesil Bank and Weymouth from the bar/restaurant area... More

We booked the hotel for a new years break. It wasn't cheap, but no where is at new year. We checked in on new years eve. Our room was big but not amazing. Having been told by the events manager via email that the order of the evening was 7 for 730, we turned up at 710 to find the... More

We were really pleased with our one night stay. The Heights might be hindered by a rather drab exterior but the quality and value of our deluxe room, food and service was impressive. The receptionist who handled my telephone booking was delightful. The welcome on arrival was just right. The room was well appointed and in good order. It was... More

Very nice room, good shower. The view from the bar is absolutely stunning. Great breakfast, would recommend. Don't be put off by the exterior, the hotel is not a thing of beauty but that view makes up for everything!

We arrived at the Hotel quite late in the afternoon/early evening and quite fractious as we had been travelling all day earlier in the year. Absolutely fantastic is all I can say. The bedroom was well appointed, staff incredibly helpful, shower/bathroom blissful. I was one happy bunny - but the best was yet to come. A really fantastic breakfast -... More

Stayed here for the first time but I have had drinks here before as I live local. We stayed in a deluxe room which I must say was disappointing for the price. The bath room had been refurbished but the overall feel of the room was that very little money had been spend on it and for the price they... More

W e had stayed at The Heights before some years ago. We were invited to spend Christmas with friends in the area. The hotel is at the top of Portland and has the most wonderful views over Chesil Beech from the restaurant. The breakfast was excellent. We had 2 evening meals there. There is a sea food special which is... More

Before I start I must admit that I have slight OCD tendancies and I'm a stickler for cleanliness, tidiness and being organised........well the Portland Heights didn't dissapoint in any of these. We were attending a Christmas Dinner Dance so decided to stay the night and got a special rate of £60.00 for a small double for 2 people including breakfast.... More
