after an awful journey to Weymouth last week Geoff and Chris made us feel right at home immediately. Geoff carried our case up to the room. He then organised my car parking and even waited for me to return .The room we had was spotless when we arrived and remained that way for our whole stay.Tea coffee and biscuits in the room never ran out. Breakfast was perfect but I began to think Geoff was psychic because as soon as our order had been taken, our food was being brought out piping hot and cooked to perfection. Nothing was too much trouble for Chris and Geoff.They were the perfect hosts,with the perfect guest house,in the perfect position on the sea front. thanks Alan and Maggie

Room Tip: a balcony room would be ideal

Just come back from the Gloucester. We had a fantastic time. Geoff and Chris were very helpful. Food is lovely and there is a very friendly atmosphere. The location of the hotel is lovely, right on the beach front, town nearby and lots of nice places to eat. I would definitely recommend this B&B.

Just got back from Weymouth and had a lovely stay in the Gloucester House, On arrival Geoff and Chris made us very welcome. Geoff took it upon his self to help my partner find a car parking space with a permit and he did. Breakfast was superb lots of choice nothing was to much trouble. rooms very clean towels changed daily bed made good service. Would definitely return to this guest house but hope to grab the balcony room next time around. we left the booking to the last minute and with one room left managed to get a sea view anyway. Weather was beautiful . It makes all the difference when you got 2 lovely genuine owners who care about there guests thank you Chris and Geoff

Room Tip: I would try and get the room with the balcony although all the rooms are lovely its just that bit ex...

We stayed at the Gloucester House,last week. Geoff and Chris were there to meet us on arrival with a warm and friendly welcome. They helped with carrying the luggage to our room, and made sure that we we were settled ok. We were lucky to park in the small car parking area at the back of the house, but if that would not have been possible we would have been issued a parking permit for the street at the rear of the property. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful to ensure a luvly full belly to start off the day to visit the many beautiful and interesting places of Weymouth. The location was perfect, the beach just across the road, the shops close by, and a wide variety of places to eat.The rooms were immaculate with comfortable and clean beds, very little noise, however the room we stayed in (short notice) had a poor view, but everything else was perfect. Geoff and Chris, made our stay most enjoyable, always smiling and willing to help, offering that personal touch at all times. The only downfall was there was no lift, and people with some mobility issues may struggle with the stairs. Our stay with Geoff and Chris will be a very memorable one, and would definitley visit again and recommend to family and friends. Warm, friendly, great hospitality, and service, great food..... perfect.!! We would like to thank Geoff and Chris for their hospitality and wish them all the success and best for their future. Sian and Lee Phillips .

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the building have beautiful sea and coastal views.

We spent 2 weeks here great location right opposite the beach by the clock tower, run by very friendly people that made everyone welcome, lots of choice at breakfast and you don't have to wait long.
rooms are very comfortable with coffee, hot chocolate and tea etc..
our trip was for work but would definitely use it if I was taking the family down there.

Room Tip: Balcony room was great.
