“Great location - poor service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2010

Upmarket B&B in central location - good size rooms and relaxed atmosphere. Perhaps too relaxed for over £100 per night, so dont expect a great level of service.

A couple of examples email one person for booking but another to check availablitiy, you have to call them back for updates when they should be calling you at that nightly rate. Pickup's from the train station advertised on the website - yes but Michael the owner is all to quick to tell you dont do them anymore and that they need to update the website - a year later is still there! If you want internet access you need to get the elusive username and password from Penny - it exists but you are told its so hard to setup you know! Also other information on the website is not all correct - so if you really want to go best give them a call again and again and again...................

Shame as its really a great place and location which with the right service would warrant the price for somehting that would be special.

The bakehouse is a very nice guest house. It is clean and very nicely furnished. However, it is not worth the cost per night, especially when compared to other places in Weymouth. It is by far one of the most expensive places in Weymouth- but is not one of the nicest.

Internet is not avaliable- despite being advertised.

The bathrooms have sensor lights- which although are environmentally friendly- are ridiculous. The lights go off after about 5 minutes and you end up in the shower or on the toilet in the pitch black.

We were also asked only to use one towel- when you are paying over £100 a night- you do not expect to be asked to only use one towel. We also had problems with the bathroom door in the suite, which if closed became stuck. We had to leave the door ajar when using the bathroom!

Also, when staying away I like to be given my key and then left to fend for myself. The proprietor was slightly too intrusive in his conversation.

In general- Good- but too expensive and could do better.

This is a fantastic, immaculate B&B. Hosts, Penny & Michael extremely welcoming and have really picked up on what is expected for a home from home atmosphere. We felt like long lost friends rather than guests. The place has been completely refurbushed and is clean and warm, furnished in creams and whites throughout. Complimentary drinks and fruit are available every evening in the beautiful lounge. Michael is an excellent cook and cooked wonderful breakfasts selected from a wide ranging menu. Breakfast times are flexible and worked around the guests needs rather than the hosts. The position of this B&B is also spot on, just a few steps from the harbour front and the shopping centres. Free private parking another added bonus! An all round perfect spot, well done to Mike & Penny who also have the Letter Box across the road. We have been to several B&Bs and hotels, this is now the top of our list. Fantastic!!
