Reviewed October 21, 2013

We really enjoyed our recent stay in the hotel, this is the 2nd time we stayed at The Roundhouse because we enjoyed it so much the first time. The dual aspect room was lovely, the hotel was clean, we had a warm welcome, bed comfy - what more could we ask for!

Room Tip: Ask for a dual aspect room, the harbour is one side and the coast the other. Make sure you preorder...

Many thanks for taking the time to review the Roundhouse. I am very pleased to note that not only did you enjoy your first stay enough to come for a second visit but you have already booked to stay with us again next year. But the Seafood Festival is a long way away - I hope we'll see you again before then!

We stayed here for one night while visiting friends in weymouth.
The rooms are all different and a little quirky but fantastic. The room we stayed in was very comfortable. The attention to detail is fabulous with little extras included in all rooms such as tea cakes and sweets.
I would definitely recommend this B&B and should we come back to weymouth we will choose to stay here again.

We have stayed in Weymouth several times in the past at various B&B's and we loved the Roundhouse, its a beautiful location and I found the scratch card for the parking good value and in a good close location (we could see if from the one window. We had the first floor room with lovely big window view of the sea and also a view of the Harbour. The room was very large and the bathroom made it stand out from other B&Bs as it was an actual proper bathroom - rather than an add on, or cupboard. We paid extra for cooked breakfast and we weren't disappointed.

Room Tip: Room 1 is the first floor beach view room which also has Harbour view too, lovely large bathroom, 2...

Keith & Alex were good hosts and the ground floor room that we occupied for four days was spacious, very clean, with a comfortable bed and nice big armchairs, with excellent tea and coffee making facilities, over looking the bay at the front and the harbour at the back. We were pleasantly surprised as we have not stayed in a traditional guesthouse before. Our main issue would be that the colour scheme, the lighting fittings and soft furnishings were an eclectic mix which we felt just didn't do the room justice. At the risk of offending the proud owners to be constructive if the decor and soft furnishings were softer, more subtle and coordinated it would be ideal. The plastic panel on the chimney, blue and pink walls and black curtains and silver painted drawers detracted from an otherwise very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Take the owner up on the parking permits if you have your own transport. Makes it completely stress...

Many thanks for taking the time to leave a review for the Roundhouse. I was glad to read that on the whole you enjoyed your stay.

The Roundhouse is many things, but one thing it most definitely isn't, is "traditional". We actually try very hard to make sure that we are very different from anywhere else in Weymouth. All our rooms are individually designed to make sure that no two are the same and the eclectic mix of colours, furniture and fabrics is very deliberate. As we say on our website - we have a "singular and somewhat bohemian boutique style".

When we decided on our designs and colours we knew that the hotel wouldn't be to everyone's tastes, but as there are well over a hundred properties in Weymouth with a more traditional theme we felt that there was room for a guest house that offered something different.

From the feedback we have had, we stand by our decision. Many of our guests have commented on how nice it is to stay somewhere that dares to differ from the norm and sometimes ask for advice on furnishing and decorating their own homes!

So, while I welcome and thank you for your constructive criticism, I have to say that the colours, themes, artwork and furniture will not be changing anytime soon!

Best regards

Once again my wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the Roundhouse for a mid week break,
For anyone visiting Weymouth,this is the place to stay. You will not be disappointed.We love it.
The hotel has the best location in Weymouth in my opinion,the view from both windows is so relaxing,just to sit in the bay window with a cup of tea and watch the world go by.The bed is so comfortable and the shower(very important) is great.Breakfast has one of the largest selections we have seen apart from Cruising.Keith could not be more helpful,just ask.We both look forward to
staying with you again when next we visit Weymouth. Thank-you Both. JOHN&KIM.

Room Tip: all rooms are fine, if you have to chose then rooms 1,2,3.on ground & first floor.
