“Generally good, but.....”
Reviewed 23 February 2014 via mobile

We gave just spent a couple of nights at this hotel and on the whole enjoyed our stay. We had a quiet room at the back of the hotel, which apparently doubled as a disabled room. How this was the case given that it was on the 4th floor with no lift was a bit difficult to understand. The room was a good size with a large bathroom in a 'wet room' style with an open shower. Unfortunately the only heating in the bathroom was a towel rail so it was pretty cold. The rooms are basic but comfortable with a good bed. Breakfast was very good and the free bottled water and hot drinks in the lounge were a bonus. Staff were helpful and friendly.
The only thing that lost the hotel a mark or two was our experience on the 2nd day. We went out for the day and although it was a nice sunny day it is still February! When we got back to our room at around 5.30, someone, presumably the housekeeper, had left our bathroom window open and had switched off the only heating in the bedroom at the mains. I understand that the electric heating may cost a lot to run but the comfort if the customer must come first and it is not acceptable to turn off the heating. It was very cold in the bedroom and bathroom and took ages to warm up. It was obvious that the room was still occupied as it contained all of our belongings.
Given the location, breakfast and friendliness of staff we would probably stay again but it looks like the housekeeping team could do with more training to ensure the comfort of the guests.

Thank you for reviewing.

I can only think that we have been rather over-zealous at the first sign of sun and when servicing your room, we have turned down the heat! We are fresh air fans. Sincere apologies for this - yes, it would have been a lot chillier when you returned early evening compared to when we were house keeping in the morning.

Please come again and we look forward to welcoming you back. All the best.

Since my daughter moved here last year I find myself in Weymouth at least twice a month.
I found this boutique B & B on the internet, I have now stayed here more than a dozen times, If it and the staff were not pleasant and professional I would have found somewhere else to stay.
The rooms are of a very good 3 /4 star hotel rating only lacking tea and coffee facilities in the room but these are to be found in tbe residents lounge.
The staff are extremely friendly. The establishment also has the benefit of zonal parking permits handy in a busy coastal town and good WIFI and Bar room service.
For those frequent visitors there is a benifits club that provides a free night for every 6 nights stayed which can be used in any of the 3 establishments in the group (Edinburgh and London are the others)
A little better TV channel selection would be a plus. Also no lift and outside parking are the only drawbacks. I will continue to stay here as long as I stay on the South coast.
I would recommended this establishment to any body who is looking for something central and a cut above the rest, so much so I have given gifts of accommodation to friends who work in the catering industry and they have not been disappointed.
I recommend it to anybody, especially if you are after a romantic weekend getaway, ideal.

Hi James the Chef and we love to welcome you each time you stay!

Would you like a hospitality tray in your room? This would be no problem and may help you unwind a little bit further!

See you soon and thank you, once again for your continued loyalty.

Just got home after spending two nights here, and what a brilliant two nights they were. The staff were so friendly and couldn't do enough for you. Beds are amazing and had great nights sleep, and to follow that in the morning you can wake up to freshly made Dorset breakfast; which was delicious! Will definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in Weymouth. Also the location is brilliant... All in all a lovely place. 10 out of 10 from us.

This b+b looks very appealing on the website,hence us choosing to stay here. However, to be described as boutique and 4 star I would have expected at least a good nights sleep and a warm room wih not draughts and noise as basic elements of 4 star. On arrival I noticed that the building was covered in scaffolding and right next door to Weatherspoons and some very run down shops. This would have been okay if the noise levels werent so high.When I asked to move room the response was that no-one has complained???? Maybe we all had the same room. I also requested a double bed with sea view and got a corner room with two twin beds pushed together and you could just about see the see if you sat at the right angle. Not very comfortable but the linen and duvet was good quality. It was a real shame that the bathroom had no double glazing (you really need it here as this place is noisy throughout the night - drunks leaving pubs, lorries etc) and no sash cord and was absolutely freezing on a cold windy february night. This place is masquerading as a slick, comfortable place to stay and charging for it but doesn't deliver.After suffering a the cold bathroom, struggling with a broken door handle and being woken up throughout the night by screaming, swearing drunks I would not stay here again.

Dear Guest

Thank you for reviewing. I have had chance to discuss your feedback with the Team on duty during your stay and am 100% sure that the response that no-one had complained was a genuine, honest response and the the member of staff had NO intention to be 'off-hand'. We are truly sorry if this is how it has been interpreted, this was NEVER our intention.

We are undergoing a period of refurbishment - there is never a good time to do this. You travelled during terrible storms and we did experience some cold nights. Had we known of your discomfort, we would have been able to provide additional heaters. Thanks for highlighting a need to be a little more pro-active, although outlined in the Guest Handbook in the room, we will include this info at check-in during any future cold spells.

We make no secrets about being in the town centre - it is a real plus to many guests. We would love to welcome you back - please contact me personally if you decide to return - I will allocate the perfect room for your stay. Thank you, once again.

Myself and my partner stayed for one night in January.

We arrived late and found that there had been a mix up with the dates we had booked. The staff were very helpful and were still able to accommodate us.

We had a room at the very top of the B+B and, although small, was very comfortable. We managed to get a seaview as well, which was a bonus. I also really liked the monogrammed pillow cases. I think this was a lovely touch.

We arrived quite late and were really pleased with the guest lounge as I was dying for a hot drink by the tim we arrived. It was very pleasant sitting on the comfy sofa's reading the paper before bed. I also liked the bottled water that was provided as in previous B&B's we have stayed in we have found it difficult to get a drink if we arrive late.

In the morning it was great to be able to help ourselves to a hot drink before breakfast, again something which I have not really been able to do before.

The breakfast was outstanding and freshly cooked. Loved the layout and family style feel of the breakfast room.

The staff were very friendly and we would definitely recommend the stay to anyone.

Room Tip: Call the B+B to see what is available. I would recommend the top floor for those able to climb the...

Hi and thank you for reviewing. We love the Guest Lounge - it is a great place to read and unwind..perhaps with a glass of something from the bar or over a hot cuppa - just one of the extra provisions the B+B Collection make to set us apart form the average B+B experience! Hope to see you soon.

Dear Sir

Thank you for taking time to review and for re-visiting. We quite often advise guests to leave the car at home if at all possible - the transport network is fantastic in/around Weymouth and Portland and we believe you take in so much more of our super scenery.

Thank you, once again and see you very soon.

Clean rooms, good quality bedding, a strong shower and very helpful staff. Delicious breakfast, quality ingredients and plenty coffee. Overall, very good value for money.

Some of the party suffered from outside noise, but if you’re in a British seaside town on the prom what do you expect? Would happily return.

Liked the help yourself hot drinks and bottled water, that was included in the price.

Hi Guys

Thank you so much for taking the time to review. We complete a lot of local analysis and we believe our rates to be great VFM considering the fab guest lounge, complimentary excellent quality freshly ground coffee and speciality teas, free bottled mineral water and Wi-Fi. Many of these facilities are not available at the rates we offer and we are thrilled you have enjoyed them!

We look forward to welcoming you back - please consider our Belong + Benefit scheme if you are considering staying at any of the B+B Collection.

Thanks again.
