“Comfortable and pleasant stay couldn't pick any faults.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

Me and my boyfriend stayed at The Marden for two nights and it was fantastic. Jan and Gary were both lovely and made you feel at home. There was somewhere to park my car and the B&B was close to every thing you needed. Room was nicely decorated and the bed was heavenly comfortable. Breakfast was yummy and you could have more if you wanted. Will defiantly be retuning again this summer. I don't usually leave reviews but felt I had to say how good our stay was oh and loved the towels.:)

I needed long-term accommodation in Weymouth and found this B&B by shear good fortune. I didn't research it first online, but merely rang the doorbell. Jan welcomed me in and showed me the room available. It's a lovely double room with en-suite, tea-making facilities and a TV/DVD on the wall. It's all well furnished and clean. The bed is really comfortable. Breakfast is great. Full English, plus cereals, toast and a nice pot of tea. Just what you want to start the day. I also take advantage of the evening meals offered. These are always very tasty and superbly cooked. The B&B is well located for the town and beach. A 5-10 minute walk is all it takes. Jan and Gary are excellent hosts and have made me feel very welcome. You'll have a hard job finding a better B&B in Weymouth.

Our welcome was very warm and we were offered a pot of tea when we arrived. We stayed two nights in a very comfortable quiet room where the origami towels impressed us. The breakfast were perfect, both the full English and the more healthy option we chose on the second morning. This Guest House is within easy walking distance of the town centre and beach. We heartily recommend this location and will genuinely be revisiting.

We stayed at the Marden March 2013 for a weekend retreat,Jan and Gary are a super couple who can't be faultered with their welcoming company and great hospitality. Their breakfasts are delicious and the room was lovely and cosy.The hotel is only a ten minute walk away the town centre with its abundant shops and pubs.We took advantage of the lovely walks in the nearby Dorchester.We would heartily recommend this guest house for its quiet location and would genuinely visit again given the chance.

I stayed at the Marden in Sept 2012 with my Partner we wanted to stay somewhere while visiting family, we could not have choosen better.
Gary and Jan are a lovely couple and make you feel very welcome nothing is to much trouble, you are greeted with a smile and a cuppa on your arrival which was very welcome after a long journey.
The breakfast was well cooked and plentiful, full English, cereal, toast you wont be hungry when you leave.
Rooms are clean and welcoming all with en-suite facilities. The Marden has a good central location for the Town and the Marina and is only a short stroll away from the sea.
Next time we visit Weymouth we will definately stay at the Marden Guest House again.

We stayed at Marden House for the Olympic Sailing as part of London 2012 and were glad to find such a fantastic guest house. Its location is perfect for both the town, beach and quay. Gary and Jan were very accomodating with our parking requirements and being offered fresh beverages on arrival was a welcome and hospitable gesture. Our room was clean, had everything you needed and our hosts were keen to make our stay enjoyable. Breakfast was of a very high standard with a full and varied choice of quality continental items and a superior and generously sized cooked breakfast. We have stayed at Weymouth many times, but find the Marden House excels all others by the friendly attitude and welcome given by the owners. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here next time and highly recommend this top quality establishment.
