Stayed for 2 nights in a single room on the top floor. Bathroom is separate on the floor below but it is your own private bathroom. Room itself is basic but has a beautiful sea view of the bay. And the location is excellent, literally 20 seconds from the beach and around the back you have the harbour/marina where you... More

My daughter and I stayed here for a couple of days. Weymouth is a beautiful place. Our room was lovely; cosy and clean and overlooked the harbour directly which was fabulous. On the downside you could hear the people in the next room and the breakfast was average but not brilliant. It would be great to have a list of... More

Upon arrival we were introduced to the resident dog, but had to ask the owner's name. Shown to our room on the top floor it looked ok, but we soon realised that the double bed was two singles. This and the lumpy unsupportive mattresses made for bad night's sleep. No hot water in shower and it only ran lukewarm at... More

This B & B is 'Spot on' because it's right at the beach and the back rooms face the harbour. Beach, boats, rides, shops and food are all metres away. The bay is a safe place for young children to paddle or swim and there is real sand. It is the quintessential seaside holiday place.

The team at the B&B are always friendly and willing to makes guests as welcome as possible, rooms have great views with those at the front looking over the beach and those at the rear looking over the harbour.
