“Dinner guests of family staying at Bay Royal”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

I live in Weymouth and my sister and brother in law came to Weymouth on a short break from Hull with National Holidays. The hotel were more than happy for an extra 2 people to have dinner in the hotel with them on the Saturday night. The hotel was welcoming and clean. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. It was busy and there was a good atmosphere. After pre-dinner drinks in the bar which is nicely decorated and warm we went in to the restaurant which is also welcoming. There was a good choice on the menu, our courses were served promptly and the food was hot and of good proportions. Towards the end of our meal the manager visited every table to ask if everything was to our satisfaction and if we were enjoying our stay which was a lovely touch. She genuinely cared that everyone was having a good time.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Weymouth. The location on the sea front is wonderful and within easy walking distance of the town. Easy access to buses and railway station.

We visited the hotel 3 times during the weekend and enjoyed each experience very much.

Room Tip: Request a room overlooking the sea, superb. If you are driving, check on parking availability as I...

Well I had to take a few days off work and was tired of travelling overseas with work and I had spotted these mid week break deals with Shearings. I was just looking for a nice quiet hotel in a nice location and having watched the sailing from Weymouth during the Olympics thought Weymouth would be worth a visit. It was everything I needed and more.

This hotel has the best location on the esplanade with great views while still being walking distance from town and old harbour area.

I booked a four night DBB package which surprisingly included four drinks per day.

I arrived a week early, yes you read right. A week early, I told you I needed the break, however with the assistance of the lady on reception I was allowed to check in.

May I say the food was very good, excellent choices each evening, and friendly and efficient service. Sona in the dining roomwas very good (and beautiful).

Breakfast were excellent.

Rooms are going through an upgrade process but mine was more than adequate for my requirements and the bathroom and shower was very good,

Overall a great experience, and exceptional value for money.

I will be back!!!

We visited the Bay Royal at Weymouth last weekend and found it to be very good.The staff were extremely welcoming and friendly always cheerful.On the saturday evening Cynthia who had only been there for 2weeks was on her own in the bar and it was extremely busy because the guests had been given free drinks vouchers and there didnt seem to be enough glasses and at one point the till wasnt working properly but despite this Cynthia coped brilliantly and didnt stop smiling throughout so well done to her!!!!The food was very good and once again the dining room staff were really lovely and very accommodating. If you can call it a critisism they could turn the heating down a notch because it was very hot everywhere in the building but all in all great experience and would visit there again and recommend.thanks to them all mrs,cannon p.s. they advise no parking facilities but they do give you a voucher for your car for the limited spaces outside hotel and it covers the car park in town centre short walk away.

Room Tip: we had 208 and gave lovely view of sunrise in morning.

Had a very nice stay at weekend, Staff very helpfull one for excellent service named Carly should get all stars Working morning and evening with friendly attitude also would go that extra mile.
Rooms are very clean mum dad stayed in a sea view room you could see the whole front. Only one comment is my room only had a bath no shower but that is my only issue not bad for the cost.
Entertainment very good even had me dancing. Bar had another hard worker the same as Carly would help with any request just did not get her name.
Would return and recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: Request a room with shower and for veiws would go seaview

We have had five wonderful days at this hotel. The food has been excellent - plenty of choice at breakfast, and it was served hot. The three-course evening meal, with choices for each course, was excellent. While some people may see the decor as "shabby" it seemed very acceptable to us; this is an old building and the decoration seems suitable to it. The one problem we found was that the bedroom floor creaked a lot! - but as we had a great view overlooking the sea we put up with that. On arrival we phoned reception for a mattress topper for one bed and this was fitted before we had unpacked. The staff were very obliging at all times. If you stay there be sure to look at the memorial across the road, with details of preparations for D-Day in the Weymouth area.

Lovely stay at the hotel only a few grumbles but overall would stay again if we had same room 214 2nd floor big views and nice warm clean room ,did ask for a mattress topper for my bed but within 30mins housekeeping at the door to sort problem out. did not put us off stay, food v nice but food portions were a bit sparse but again it was 3 courses so ample to get nosebag tucked into .one waitress was particularly abrupt and not very helpful ..didn't tip her... so if you are thinking of using shearings and this hotel do...one tip we went on a trip to Portland Bill .stunning views,coach driver came upon a gentleman who was a diver and long term resident of Portland and he agreed to come on the coach and give us a guided tour he was an absolute gem of a find he was informative name of Selwyn Williams ,please ask them to continue with his services..

Room Tip: room 214 for a splendid view
