This might have been the best small hotel I have ever stayed in. The lady who runs it with here daughter is very friendly and we were checked in within 2min. We booked last minute and got the largest room (the only on still available) and were very happy to find anything at all in the city.
It's right by the beach (on one site, 20seconds walk) and 30 seconds walk to the harbour (the other side). Our room looked onto both: one large window with a couch to sit on looked over the beach, the houses that front the beach, and a huge part of the coast east of weymouth. We could even see the chalk cliffs around lulworth cove from our room. On the other side of the room was large window, from which we looked onto the channel with it's sailing boats going by (when you are lying in bed you can even see the masts of them floating by).
The shower has a huge head and it feels like you are in a 5 start hotel. The room was large but as said before we got the larges room and I am not sure about the others.
The breakfast is amazing and included in the price of the room: the croissants are self made and excellent. they come with jam, bread, coffee, tea, orange juice. Then there is a choice of English breakfast, omlette, cereal and some other dishes I have forgotten just now. The room where breakfast is served has two large windows, one of whcih looks onto the beach, house fronts and coast towards Lulworth.
The only small disadvantage, and it's a tiny one: in front of the hotel was a roller coster for kids when we were staying there. But when you shut the windows you heard nothing, and they stop at 9pm anyway.
Walking anywhere in the little harbour over the bridge take a maximum of 10 min, or you could even take the little boat rowed by an old man across the channel for 50p a person. The beach is a 30min walk long and as said before you are on it form the hotel in less than 30seconds. parking is 6.50GBP for 24 hours with a slip from the hotel and it is a 3 min walk away from the hotel behind the pavillion. So all in all this was an amazing one day stay and I can only recommend it.
