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

I bet you've looked at the website for The Heights Hotel and thought 'this looks good', but don't be fooled. Whilst this hotel is in a stunning location with fantastic views, plenty of parking and friendly helpful staff, that's where the good points end. At £135 per night for a small grotty room which had an unpleasant odour, as did... More

We were on honeymoon travelling the Dorset coast. Out of all the hotels we stayed at on our honeymoon The Heights came out tops for us. The staff acknowledged our honeymoon and were always very pleasant and helpful. From the minute we arrived we were looked after extremely well and we felt most relaxed during our stay here. We arrived... More

We had lunch here and the views over the Chesil Beach and Portland Harbour are amazing. The dressed crab sandwiches were super and the service was good. A great place to stop off on your way too or from Portland Bill.

Beautiful place on top of Portland. Hotel looks dull. Food looked good, toilets were spotless. A couple of staff were rushing us with our order but 1 younger girl was extremely helpful when I reported an issue with a toilet.

We were here for drinks and the prices are quite high for the drinks. The hotel itself is very clean and tidy and the staff are helpful and friendly. The location and views are magnificent. We will come back for a meal very soon.

We stayed in a deluxe room for 3 nights in August, and really enjoyed it. The room was large, and probably worth paying the extra for the seating area that you get over and above a standard room. The room was also clean, modern, and quiet. What stood out for us though was the staff, all of whom succeeded in... More

We stayed for two nights. The hotel is advertised as 3 star but I think it does much better than that. Sure the rooms may be a bit dated but the service we got in the restaurant matches a 5 star experience. In particular, Suzy the restaurant manager, could not do enough for us and made our stay memorable. We... More
