“basic b&b nothing like leads you to believe”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Was promised lots by the owner and it never happened and we needed help, but if it hadn't been for a passer by, another resident and a neighbour we would have been in a real mess.

Add to that curtains falling off pole and couldn't be closed at night. Three coat hangers in wardrobe one being a child's, one toilet roll and no spare, and the very "Dr Who" shower that has no water pressure and actually rocks when you stand in it cos it isn't fastened to the wall.

Decided to try cocktail and wasn't made to feel welcome in bar either.

Was promised lots and sadly it delivered nothing.

Room Tip: A superior room is far from superior

sulzc, Owner at Acqua Beach Weymouth, responded to this review, July 16, 2013
Thank you for your review and I'm sorry you say you were very let down and needed help. This help you required, and didn't ask for at the time was with the mobility scooter that you hired whilst you were staying in Weymouth. I have only had one previous guest with a scooter such as this, and if you had asked, I would have helped to carry it in. I am 5'7, female of slight build and as such, I cannot lift a heavy scooter alone. I thought your scooter would have been the type that fits in a car boot. I would have enlisted the help of another staff member if you had asked, which you clearly did.
You had our superior sea view room with balcony, which is pictured. I wasn't aware there were so few hangers in the wardrobe, we've filled it up now, as we would have done if you had asked, for this, or another toilet roll. We really do aim to please, and I'm sorry you didn't feel you were welcomed in the bar. I thought you were really nice guests....Your suggestion of converting the car park into a mobility scooter park probably isn't going ahead.

Very warm welcome and all staff friendly. Room was clean. Is trying to be more than a b&b with a cocktail bar but has a way to go before it could be called a boutique hotel. Coffee in the room was not replaced when it was cleaned. No peppermint tea available at breakfast. Breakfast is OK nothing special. There is nothing majorly wrong just nothing that makes it standout. Also no WiFi-

We booked before the recent reviews and based our choice on the hotel's own website. If they had said they were a basic B&B I would not be complaining, but it is annoying to be mislead.
It is exactly as the travellers photos show and as poor as the other bad reviews. I have nothing to add that is positive.
I would not stay here again.

Room Tip: What can I say ? We were "Upgraded" to room 10 what was the down grade like?

We didn't stay here but we came for cocktails two nights running.
The decor was lovely, great choice of drinks, and some good happy hour deals.
If we hadn't already booked our accommodation elsewhere we would have liked to stay!

Had lovely time at the Acqua Beach. We had a sea view room with balcony which was excellent . Traffic can be a bit noisy at the front but wouldnt stop me having a sea view room again. Staff were very helpful, breakfast was very nice. Would definately stay here again.

We were so, so disappointed by our stay at the Aqua Beach. The owners have done a half hearted rebrand but everything in our room (room10) referred to the place as The Concord Hotel.
Our room looked like a youth hostel & nothing like the rooms on the website. Certainly not worth the £75 we had to pay! The first thing we were confronted with was 3 tier bunk beds, holes in the walls where doors had bashed & curtains so thin they were as effective as badly stained net curtains.
The building is old so we would expect a little unevenness here & there. The floor in the bedroom sloped alarmingly but no attempt has been made to level the furniture with small wooden blocks. The result was my partner sleeping downhill from me.
Whilst in the shower the following morning I was disgusted to find a soiled plaster stuck to the cubical wall by a previous resident. The bathroom itself was a dark & dingy little hole with a revolting light pull stained by many dirty hands.
There was no useful shelves, hooks or storage space.
The only good points were the very friendly & helpful housekeeper and the view.
I've added photos of what you will actually find in any room you book.
We wanted to give our custom to an independent hotel but in future I think we will use the bland, but fit for purpose Premier Inn so's not to have any more nasty surprises.

Visited Easert Saturday and stayed just the one night as came down for a party. Room was tucked away on first floor right in the corner, but it looked clean and fresh. Bathroom was huge and looked recently refurbished, it was perfect for what we wanted. Beds were really comfy which makes a change, Popped into the bar which was decorated in a both modern and old fashioned way and it was very welcoming. Cocktails are 2 for 1 in happy hour and were great. Sat in windown and watched world go by. Breakfast was fine. Cereal and cooked breakfast available. If coming down, please request parking space when booking, as we didn't but were fortunate enough to get the last "unbooked" one as we arrived before the other guests. Felt it was really good value for money
