Excellent meal for our family of seven. All selected meals were so tasty, cooked so well and presented beautifully. The staff were very attentive and served us so well. The views by day are spectacular but lovely by night too. Will go back very soon.

You can see the waves crashing on to the beach along the Jurassic coast & on a clear day literally see for miles. Today we had the afternoon tea offer which is excellent... More

My wife and I had an hour to kill, so we popped into the "Heights" for a coffee. Not having been here before we thought we would give it a go. With it's own free car park "The Height's" is situated right on the roundabout at the top of Portland hill. There are two entrances, side and front. The side... More

We enjoyed fresh crab and smoked salmon sandwiches and hot beverages. We soaked up the view and we were sorry to leave.

It is such a shame but the food at the Heights really does let it down, very expensive and very bland. The views are incredible and that is what you pay for.

We stopped here for afternoon tea & scones to take in the amazing views of chissel beach & Weymouth. The drinks were reasonably priced & the scones were fresh & hot with jam & clotted cream. The cafe is on the 1st floor up some stairs but I believe there is a lift. There is also a balcony that you... More

We went to the portland Heights Hotel for tea, coffee and cake. Me and my mum had a very nice piece of rocky road and my dad had a beautiful piece of lemon drizzle. The views from the cafe are dazzling and the staff here are really nice. I would definitely recommend coming here for some tea and cake.
