The hotel is quite a nice place to stay. Breakfast was good and plentiful. The room was clean with a comfy bed. The shower was a little bit small, not a big door to get in. Staff were pleasant and helpful.

Good home cooked food and very fair prices. We returned early from a muddy bike ride around the Island and dropped in for a sandwich and cuppa. They even offered to let us sit inside covered in mud but we declined and instead they provided towels for us to sit on outside. Great hospitality and open at 07:30 hours on...

Right from when we walked in the staff were amazing Elliott the barman is a very polite chap and nothing is to much trouble for him. Angel is great too and a good chef. Everyone says that it's basic. It is a little but the price reflects that. It's clean tidy and the shower is great. The food is reasonably...

To be honest, my heart sank when the hotel came into view. It is surrounded by derelict buildings and is next to a working boatyard. Things got better - the room was clean and bare - in fact so bare there was nowhere to sit or put luggage on other than the bed. A thought guys? We asked to see...

It is advertised as a 3 star hotel and that is what you get. The cafe / dining area is a little unusual and the food is basic. Staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were again basic but very clean. Would definitely recommend this hotel but just remember it is a three star.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Aqua is situated just a few moments walk from Portland Port, Portland Marina and the National Sailing Academy. We are also a stones throw from Henry IIIV's Portland Castle and Chesil Beach, and Weymouth is just a short drive away. Whether you are here for business or pleasure, the Aqua is an ideal base, offering a warm welcome and plenty of local knowledge to help you make the most of your visit. Breakfast and lunch is available from Angel and her team in The Aqua Cafe. Or why not unwind in the evening with a drink and a meal in our Wreck Bar?
