“great weekend break”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

We stayed at this hotel for two nights (Friday & Saturday) in the middle of January. We booked via booking.com but could have got it cheaper if we booked via the hotel. We had booked bed and breakfast but opted to have our evening meal in the hotel, very very good and at a reasonable price. All the staff were excellent. Room very comfortable. Will certainly be visiting this hotel again

Room Tip: We had a sea view, worth paying extra

After staying at the hotel rex I have nothing bad to say the staff a very helpful and friendly as soon as you enter the hotel it feels and looks clean stayed in multiple rooms which have all been equally as clean and the sea view rooms give a lovely view of the beach. All the rooms are all nicely sized and comfortable.
The restaurant is just the best with brilliant waiters/waitresses/chefs etc the food is always at amazing standards presentation and taste!
I would recommend this hotel hugely to all!

We had a family reunion lunch here on the weekend of 14th December.
All 23 of us agreed the food was excellent!
Breakfast was great too.
The Rex is clean and cosy with all you would expect from a seafront hotel, but what set it apart from others was the friendly and caring staff.
All our requests were catered for and carried out with a smile. Nothing was too much trouble.
We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

At very short notice (5 days) two weeks before Christmas we needed to organise a large family meal for 25 and book 5 rooms for a weekend. The Rex staff were incredibly helpful in the organisation of this huge task- despite already having another large booking. However, the real success was the weekend itself. Rooms and facilities were everything you would expect from this level of hotel but what really set the REX apart was the fantastic hospitality and service of all the staff. The smooth running of the lunch, which ran way into the late evening, was organised to such a high standard it was seamless. I can't really articulate quite how perfect the staff made this weekend but as a very critical customer I could not praise the level of service enough. Thank you.

Room Tip: Higher floors are much quieter.

We had a Monday to Friday Turkey and Tinsel ,11th November till 15th .The Rex Hotel gave us a very welcoming ,warm friendly break.We take 3 or 4 UK breaks a year and this hotel rates the top. Clean rooms ,fresh tasty food,and evey member of staff could not do enough for us. The standard of customer service is over and above any we have recieved here or abroad.The staff make the hotel as well as the beautifully cooked food again such a high standard.Cannot reccomend this hotel enough.

My friend and I have just had a long weekend in Weymouth November 22nd to 24th we stayed at the Rex Hotel. Where we had a warm and friendly welcome. Our room was comfortable, clean with the most amazing sea view of Weymouth Bay. The beds were very comfortable the room was lovely and warm..... it was a very cold weekend. All the staff were friendly, thoughtful and very helpful. We particularly appreciated their help and advice about hiring a mobility scooter for my pal which was delivered to our hotel, which made exploring Weymouth so much more easier for her. Breakfast is great with a good choice we enjoyed perfectly boiled eggs and scrambled egg with smoked salmon and smoked haddock.
We plan to visit again and would highly recommend to anyone who wants a relaxing environment

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have an amazing view

I have just got back from Weymouth after spending an extremely pleasant weekend at the Rex enjoying one of their 3 day Turkey &Tinsel events. I took a coach and 30 passengers with me and without exception they were all very impressed with every aspect of the Hotel. Nothing was too much trouble for the wonderful staff who were always very friendly and accommodating Food was excellent and the rooms clean and welcoming. The Hotel felt like 'home from home' Thoroughly recommended
