Hudsons
Ranked #62 of 166 Weymouth B&B and Inns
Reviewed 31 August 2013

We stayed at Graingers for 3 nights and had a lovely relaxing time. Michael, the owner was a very friendly guy who made you feel very welcome. We stayed in room 2 which was an en-suite, it was spotlessly clean with tea/coffee making facilities, hair dryer and fridge. The en suite was more than adequate and the bed comfortable. The room was nice and cool despite it being warm out but it is next to a busy road and room 2 overlooks that. We didn't find it any problem to sleep though. We didn't try the breakfast as we like Porridge and it wasn't one of the things on offer sadly. However we managed to get it at both Wetherspoons in Weymouth town centre. Graingers have about 5 parking spaces but there is room for about 4 more cars on the road. We arrived early morning so couldn't park in Graingers spaces but parked on the road and walked into town.
The guest house is a 15 minute walk to the beach and about 20 to the town centre, turn right out of the guest house keep going past Weymouth Conservative club and bear right. Buses are easily available and the bus stops have electronic information of services. The Guest house is directly opposite a large Lidl store so you can buy most things. Turn left out of the house and about 100 yards away is a very nice pub The Famous Old Spa and we ate there each night at a reasonable price. The beach is very nice indeed, cleaned every night and you can hire a wind shield for £2, deck chair £2 and a sun bed £6 a day although we felt that was expensive and not many hired them. We recommend sitting on the beach near to the town and the cafe which has been there since 1870 because there are free toilets and a Londis supermarket next to the Wetherspoons. The town has some nice shops and also bars, we walked through town down to the harbour for a late afternoon drink at several nice bars.
Weymouth is well worth a visit and Graingers is a very friendly option to stay at. Whilst outside the centre it is near enough to walk to and from the beach. As a Guest house this is a very good one and Weymouth overall was a really enjoyable experience.

We spent a long weekend here and we was made very welcome, the room was comfortable and clean. We booked breakfast for us and it set us up for the day, so well worth the extra cost, location was good, not to far from the seafront, just a short stroll.

We visited Graingers for two nights mid week on an exploring tour around Dorset.
The hosts were so warm and welcoming - from the phone call to book until the day we left, from help with the amenities to a last minute room exchange.
The breakfast was glorious and generous, the rooms airy and spacious with a relaxing décor.
Just about all you need for a home away from home!

Re location - you can walk to the beach from Graingers, it is about 15 minutes walk with a mild hill in the middle. Buses are just outside, though, if you don't feel like it!

The outstanding thing for us was it's proximity to the centre of Weymouth by an excellent bus service. We are car drivers, but the bus travel was so easy; a bus stop within yards to get to Weymouth centre (and then further places) but also going past Graingers in the opposite direction was a regular service to Dorchester. When you've had enough of driving for the day this was brilliant.
The accommodation was quiet, very nicely furnished, clean; an absolute steal at the price.
Mike and Andrew made us most welcome and we would recommend Graingers to all.

Absolutely fantastic reception and lovely comfortable room. We were made to feel very welcome and every effort was made to make sure we were happy. Breakfast was terrific and the hosts were very helpful by way of advice and guidance with regards to weather and transport. I couldn't thank Michael and Andrew more for making our stay as pleasurable as possible. We will be back - hopefully for longer.

We had a lovely weekend away in Weymouth - 2 couples on a little summer getaway. The rooms were sparkly clean and the breakfast was delicious though the real highlight were the owners Michael and Andrew. They couldn't have been more cheerful, accommodating, and helpful. Thanks for a great weekend!

Room Tip: Room 2 faces the road and a bit louder than others.
