We booked 4 rooms for the August Bank Holiday 2014 weekend. - Check in wasn't smooth as one of the receptionists wasn't very pleasant to speak to or offer help. At the same time, the 2nd receptionist was very amiable and good, however wasn't allowed to speak much. - The 2nd good receptionist later helped us with the itinerary of... More

We stayed at The Heights for just one night. Friendly staff, fantastic views from bar and restaurant. We had tasty but simple bar meals in the evening (rarebit / quiche) followed by outstanding deserts. Breakfast buffet was extensive, from cereal to full English. Pleasant room, comfortable bed, functional and clean bathroom. No air-con, which could be a problem in the... More

Having experienced a less than impressive time at the New inn down the road, we decided to try our luck at the Heights hotel & we were so pleased by what we experienced we ended up eating there for the rest of our stay. The restaurant offers spectacular views over Chesil beach, we ate quite early (about half 6) so... More

Stayed in deluxe double 211. Nice size room. Shame about the bedroom view. But made up for it at breakfast! Few wear and tear in the room. Breakfast was nice. Staff very friendly and helpful. Great selection. Views overlooking Portland are breathtaking. Enjoyable stay. Reasonable price.

To end our recent visit to Portland to see family, we decided to spend our final evening with a meal at The Heights. During our stay there was a festival going on and the hotel were serving a special 3 course meal with a bottle of wine for 2 as part of this festival. We could not fault it in... More

Visited the Heights Hotel 4 times for coffee during a 3 night stay in Weymouth. Despite it being a 7 mile drive each time we specifically went back because of the ambience of the place. Lovely seating area with beautiful views over Chesil beach. Plenty of seating with view; no fighting needed for that table by the window. Enough people... More

I visited Weymouth for my 30th with my Mum and sister and one thing I really wanted to do was go for an afternoon tea. I found The Heights Hotel on Trip Advisor and it came recommended, so I wanted to reflect this in my own review. We had a car, so were able to get here easily, but I'm... More

The staff at the Hights hotel were so friendly and helpful and the rooms were spotless. The views from the restaurant were fantastic and we had a relaxed break. It was easy to get into Weymouth or Portland as there was a great bus service which ran from outside the hotel. Thank you.

......Well Portland anyway! Stayed for only a couple of nights, had a Deluxe room which was very spacious. I asked for a quiet room, and got it. It overlooked the sunterrace area which I understand is soon to be revamped. The pool is redundant and covered by a blue tarpaulin. They could have covered it in decking, or surrounded it... More

We stayed for the weekend for a family celebration. Service and food for the meal was excellent. For the rest of our stay it varied from very good to distinctly average. My final breakfast of poached haddock and poached eggs was served swimming in warm water. However our evening meal the night before was better than the celebration. The room... More
