“Excellant from start to finish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

My first impression when I phoned for availability was that Rob was very helpful and welcoming,that impression stayed with us all through our stay in the Bellevue suite.From our arrival until we checked out Rob and his staff were friendly and obliging.
The breakfasts were delicious and plentiful,our rooms were well appointed but a little "tired" in a nice way.The view over Weymouth Bay is great,even in the rain.
Rob even arranged for the Olympic torch to pass in front of the Hotel on the morning of our departure !!
We will definately be back !

Room Tip: Seafront rooms are brighter

I really enjoyed my stay at The Esplanade Hotel. The hotel is within 5-10 minutes walk to town and is opposite the beach. My room was clean, well presented and had a nice neutral decor. A tea/coffee making tray was provided, as was a hairdryer. My room was on the ground floor and had an easily accessible shower in the en-suite bathroom. The breakfasts were good with plenty of choice. The lounge on the first floor has great views over the bay and was a comfortable place to relax.  Nothing was too much trouble for Rob and his staff. They were all friendly and I was made to feel very welcome. I felt "at home" during my stay. I would give The Esplanade and it's staff 5 stars and I would recommend The Esplanade to anyone wanting to stay at a B&B in Weymouth.

Room Tip: Both ground floor rooms are at the back. Much quieter than those on the front. They are disabled fri...

Hotel and room was clean and comfortable with a beautiful sea view. Lovely breakfasts (a vast choice) and owner Rob, couldn't make us more welcome. Loved the little extras including toiletries, dressing gowns, etc. Thanks to Rob for looking after us, even being available to make a late breakfast for us when we had to attend the hospital for an emergency. Would definately like to make another visit in the future.

Really lovely hotel and super hosts. A nice change for business travel! Lots of personal touches which make for a really nice stay... will definitely come again if I'm ever that way in the future...

Room Tip: rooms are lovely, although light sleepers may prefer rooms at the back of the hotel!

Thank you for taking time to leave feedback and I think you are correct that the back of the house is quieter than those rooms with the sea views. I am lucky, I could sleep if my bed was on fire so when I test the rooms, there aren't any I find noisy; which isn't the most helpful for guests haha.

I am glad that you had a good stay and I would love to see you again if you were ever travelling back this way.

Kind regards.

We have just returned from a trip along the Jurassic coast. We stayed at the Esplanade B&B, and we can honestly say we could not have had a better welcome and friendlier service anywhere.
Rob the owner was charming and so helpful. The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast superb with plenty of choice and good locally sourced food.
We would highly recommend this place to anyone.

It is great to hear that you enjoyed your time at The Esplanade, and thank you for your kind personal comments. I do enjoy my job, meeting people and sharing my local knowledge - or lack of it haha. I am also glad that you appreciated the sourcing of local produce. We do try to get things from local suppliers where possible (and the quality is good) and to keeping the 'food miles' to a minimum. This is not always possible but where there is a will, there is a way.

Thanks once again and I hope to see you again.

Kind regards

I am glad you had a good time at The Esplanade and appreciated the effort that we put in to keeping the hotel clean and the quality ingredients that go in to breakfast. We do our best to source as many local ingredients as possible.

Thank you for taking the time to feedback as it is from your comments that I can make improvements to teh way that we operate.

Kind regards and I hope to see you again.
