The Bedford Guest House
Ranked #7 of 166 Weymouth B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Had read reviews before booking and were happy with our choice. Only one night stay, but though only a small double (as stated) it was more than adequate for one night. Great location, close to beach, harbour and shops. The room and bathroom were very clean and inviting (though bathroom small, again adequate for one night). Room bright, very comfortable bed and even with the central location a very quiet night's sleep. A very warm welcome from Renia and Graham and very helpful. Lovely cooked breakfast cooked to order, polite service and offering more tea and toast so not restricted. A lovely property, nicely decorated and calm feeling throughout. Cool breakfast room with stone flooring. Again Renia and Graham very friendly with their goodbyes; all in all I would recommend their B&B, lovely stay!

Thank you Zara for taking the time to leave your review. It was a pleasure to meet you both and hopefully you may be able to stay a bit longer another time - even if you are only a short distance from us! Take care, Renia & Graham x

Renia and Graham, owners, are justifiably proud of this treasure in Weymouth. We stayed here for two nights last weekend. Situated on the Esplanade, the Bedford is in the perfect position, with the town centre, the old town and the lovely beach all within easy walking distance. From the outside, this old building looks as though it might be a bit gloomy inside. Quite the opposite! You walk through the front door into an airy and light hallway decorated in soothing pastel colours, which compliment all the original features of the building perfectly. Ours was a family room with a king size bed and a single bed. The bedspread with matching curtains lends a sumptuous feeling to the room. The room is furnished with an eclectic mix of furniture which give it a charming air of quality and comfort. The ensuite shower room and the bedroom were spotlessly clean, as was the entire building. Breakfast is eaten in the dining room. The room is below street level, but far from being dark, it takes your breath away when you see how bright and light it is. A huge window lets in all the natural light. The room still has its original flagstone floor and the room is wonderfully cool and inviting, decorated with a seaside theme that even extends to the scallop shells on the tables which hold the real butter portions. Breakfast is cooked to order and arrives at your table hot and freshly cooked. The full English is wonderful with bacon, sausage, egg, tomato, mushrooms, hash browns, beans and toast. You can just choose some of the items if you wish, or you can ask for something on toast if you prefer. On the dresser there is a selection of cereals, fresh fruit, preserves and juices, You can just help yourself. Visiting the Bedford is like staying with family, nothing is too much trouble for these lovely hosts. As soon as you arrive both Renia and Graham make you feel so welcome and we felt we were leaving family members behind when we left on Sunday morning. We are really looking forward to returning later in the year. Thank you Renia and Graham for a fabulous weekend.

Room Tip: The rooms at the front look out over the wonderful beach.

We stayed at the Bedford for the Easter break 3 nights and we loved it,so much so we booked to stay again in May for the Bank Holiday. The Bedford is cosy, comfy & clean and Renia, Graham and staff are so welcoming we felt it was like a home from home.

We did not pre book and so pleased that there was a vacancy. Graham's welcome, the spotless and tastefully decorated guest house as well as our lovely room with comfortable bed, made this a wonderful weekend. The weather was not too good but we could face it due to the delicious choice breakfast, made to order, usually ended with pleasant conversation and laughter with our hosts. We had a view over the harbour and enjoyed the easy access to the beach and town. Highly recommend and we shall be back! Thank you
