Not a good start: - made a coffee and found that the milk and cream in the room was old and gone off, also - the fire alarm went off and lasted for a long time - the room was much smaller than I had expected and paid for - the view from the window was a car-park Otherwise -... More

For about 30 days in January and February I had need of multiple rooms in Portland for business reasons, and for the majority of our stay managed to secure the entire hotel. I am fully aware that it was not the easiest time for the hotel personnel, with early starts, constant comings and goings, and last minute arrivals to accommodate.... More

All was good, no complaints. Didn't eat in the restaurant as we were meeting locals somewhere else. Could have got the same for cheaper is why this only gets a 4. Location is good for Portland, great views over the south coast.

My partner and I visited for a night in February as a 30th birthday present, we had our 15 month old daughter with us too. The staff made us feel at ease, so friendly and it's no exaggeration to say they went above & beyond, especially in a bid to entertain a mischievous toddler toddling round their hotel!! Food was...

We gave this Hotel a try for a Twixmas break. Very disappointed as the standard room was very blue and very plain.It was warm but the bar was cold. I know you pay for the views but they should take this in to account in the winter as the weather is often not good. Our room was a double but... More

We have stayed at this hotel for a number of years and in the early days we were very satisfied but standards are falling, partly because the rooms are overdue for refurbishment. We always book a deluxe room but from our experience this year we wonder if we are being taken for a ride. On the day we arrived we... More

Two day offer break Friday 7th and Saturday 8th December 2012. The offer was very good value for money. We had a standard room which was perfect for the amount of time we spent in it, it also opened onto the pool area, not applicable at this time of the year but no doubt of great advantage during the summer...

Have been staying at this hotel for over 20 years, I have seen a lot of changes. Stayed for a weekend in November. The staff are always excellent, nothing is to much trouble. I believe the restaurant to have one of the best views in the uk. It was good to see it very busy on the Saturday night. The... More

Visited for a couple of days at the end of August and was delighted by the service and facilities. Great location, great view, restaurant was better than expected and all of the staff went out of their way to help. One of our party was disabled and this hotel is ideal. One further comment - some of the criticisms in... More

It was great to return to The Heights Hotel at Portland. We have stayed at this hotel on & off for 20 years and found every stay to be fantastic which is why we return. The view across the bay from the bar & restaurant in the evening is stunning. The evening meal is superb especially the seafood and then... More
