nice hotel, good rooms, a bit small but got all you need. Nice lobby area and great views from bar and restaurant. Food though was poor, both breakfast and evening meal, not good. Cooked breakfast was overdone and evening meal just uninspiring. We had a good Shiraz with the meal though so that helped a bit. You get great views... More

There is no need for you to have to ask for a room with a view here, the reason being there aren't any. Excuse me , what happened there?. Had the architect not payed his lodge dues! Even more strange considering the fantastic Chesil Beach and English Channel views available from the restaurant/bar area. Our room would be best described.... More

Stayed here for a short break to Lulworth and Weymouth. Rooms are comfortable but the bathrooms could do with a bit of a facelift. Generally very clean and helpful staff on reception. Food was OK but the evening meal was a bit restricted in choice being bar food or an eat all you can special which was plentiful but rather... More

On arrival we were taken back by the outstanding views along the coast. The reception area was clean and lovely staff.

Thank you to the hotel staff and very good value for money. The evening meals in the bistro is really good value for money. The staff were attentitive was there but not in your face. Our breakfast with mouth dropping views put the cherry on the top on this well situated hotel.

Probably the best hotel on Portland and the room cost for B&B is just about acceptable considering its wonderful elevated position, overlooking Chesil Beach. Food, with the exception of Breakfast and lunch sandwiches, was over-priced and poorly cooked.Much better value for evening dinner is better sought outside the hotel.

Took a day visit to Weymouth and then across to Portland. Stopped for coffee and food at the heights hotel and what a place! Great views across the water and down into Weymouth! Food was really lovely and the staff very friendly and welcoming! Would definitely stay in this hotel if I was staying for a longer period of time.

It was a last minute decision, mid-August, so I was not expecting anything fabulous...I booked what was available. However, the place looked like a Vegas motel in the 60s! The team was very nice and the view is really beautiful. Amazing even... Was not really excited about the sheets: poor quality - and the bathroom floor was dirty. Tub super... More
