“may weekend at the lantana”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

this was our third stay at the lantana and we allways enjoy it ,a view out of every room, we allways get a room at the back overlooking the harbour allways lots to see. the rooms are really comfy and clean. room 1 has been totally refurbished and is really nice, and there is a rolling program to refurbish the other rooms. the location could not be better everything within 5 mins walk. we love weymouth and next time we go it will be to the lantana.

Room Tip: front rooms overlook beach, back rooms overlook harbour, more interesting with loads of boats

We loved our stay at Lantana Guest House! Our hostess Sharon was friendly and helpful and our room was absolutely stunning. Recently renovated, the room was spacious and beautifully decorated with a great view! Breakfast was lovely, everything was super clean, and we really enjoyed the location of the guest house- it was close to everything and easy to find a parking space. Thank you for a great stay, if we're ever in Weymouth again we would definitely come back to Lantana!

Our previously selected guest house was full by the time we arrived, so they pointed us in the direction of several others nearby. We came across The Lanatana and were extremely pleased with our find. Sharon is very friendly and helpful. Rooms vary, as they do in all guest houses of this sort, but ours was large, comfortable and had a wonderful view of the old harbour out the back. Other rooms face out toward the main beach. Several good pubs nearby along the old harbour and the beachfront is only steps from the fornt door. Excellent location. Very comfortable bed.

The room was over looking the bay and as it was a family room, it was very spacious and well presented. The owner said it had been recently refurbished and it was very nice. The bed was comfy. The room was heated by a single electric radiator. There were a selection of teas, fruit teas and coffee. The ensuite had a shower, toilet and sink. There was no where in the room to dry damp towels. I also missed having a hair dryer and there was no tourist information in the room.
Breakfast was served between 8-9am. There was a selection of cereals, orange juice and apple juice. I had the cooked breakfast which consisted of 2 sausages, 1 rasher of bacon, one grilled tomato, 1 hash brown, baked beans and a fried egg. There wasn't a menu on the table. White and brown toast were also served with a selection of preserves.

The location is central and excellent and although it is metered parking, the hosts do give out free permits.

Perfect location, wonderful views from my cosy room and a great breakfast set me up perfectly for my stay in Weymouth. A stone's throw from the beach & minutes from the town centre. Quiet and comfortable with helpful, hospitable and accommodating owner. Impeccably clean room with television and bay view... faultless and fabulous value.

We booked very much last minute and were welcomed by Sharon who was really pleasant. Our room overlooked the harbour, and I was pleasantly surprised by the huge bay window. Everything was clean and the bed was absolutely huge with 2 divans pushed together.. I found the bed to be very comfortable.
The hotel was nice and quiet with very little noise heard from other guests. If the sliding. Door to the en suit is left open you can hear the next rooms guests use their bathroom. But this is easily solved by keeping the door closed.
The bathroom could do with being renewed but as Sharon has on,y just taken over the hotel, this is something she will probably deal with as she finds her feet. However everything was immaculately clean so an old bathroom really isn't that bigger deal.
There was an abundance of tea and coffee in our room which is a big plus in my eyes.

No shampoo or shower gel in the bathroom but there was a liquid hand wash.
Plenty of spare loo rolls were also available in the bathroom.
Breakfast was lovely and my egg was cooked perfectly. Nothing was too much trouble. I would've liked to have had a spare knife laid on my side plate for when I buttered my toast as I had to wipe my knife off from eating breakfast in order to butter my toast.
Outside the back of the hotel is a lovely little sun terrace with ample seating.
The hotel is situated near the pavilion and right opposite the beach. You either have a sea view or a harbour view. Both are wonderful. The town centre is approx 5 minutes away and you get a parking permit which you place in the windscreen and this allows you to have free parking for the duration of your stay.
Try visiting e Marlborough fish and chip shop by the town bridge for the best cod and chips, also they do a gorgeous beef curry to dunk your chips in. Not the curry sauce, make sure you ask for the beef curry. Floods is a wonderful seafood restaurant Along the harbour but booking is advisable.
All in all we had a delightful holiday and will definitely come back to the Lantana again. Thank you Sharon and family and good luck for your new venture within the hotel business.

New owners this year and are very nice and helpfull,the food is great,well cooked and not oily , the choice of food good too,the rooms are clean,the bed linen is clean and smells fresh which is a must ,the only downside of the rooms being the bathrooms /showers need a revamp, which kate never got round to doing , but sharon intends to do in the winter i belive.

Room Tip: Go for harbour view as quieter due to less traffic.
