“Comfortable but whatever you do don't lose your keys!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012 via mobile

The room was nice, the beds very confortable and the bathroom clean if a little cramped. We stayed on new years eve; unfortunately we lost the keys at the beginning of the night which proved to be a huge problem when returning in the early hours. We were apologetic at having to wake the owner up (and regrettably potentially some guests) but were surprised at the angry response we received, and initial refusal to let us in, considering the trade (surely losing keys is to be expected from time to time?) and that it was new years eve. Overall, enjoyed the room and comfortable bed but the reaction to losing keys was OTT and a little humliating considering we're in our thirties!

Stayed December 2011

Stayed for one night on my way home from Channel Islands. Comfortable bed gave me a much needed good nights sleep. Breakfast in the morning was also very nice.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2009

I was very disappointed with the standard of accomodation provided considering we had paid £65 for one night. Yes, it was in a location in easy walking distance to the town, but the room was very small and hot so we had to open the windows. Unfortunately, there were people playing the guitar in the garden outside the window until after 11 pm. The only thing distracting from this noise was the noise of the plumbing! All of the drainage within the whole of the building is pumped. Every time someone flushed the toilet, it could be heard throughout the building. There were so many other rules to adhere to, I am disappointed that flushing the toilet after 10 pm was not one of them!

The bathroom was very small. It was impossible to use the sink without first sitting on the toilet in order to shut the door, and there was no room to stand in front of the sink or to dry yourself after getting out of the shower.

As we were only in Weymouth for the weekend, we requested an early breakfast on the Sunday morning so we could make the most of the day. The earliest they could provide was 8.15 as the normal set breakfast time is 8.30. It made us laugh that at 8.30 on the dot every single guest in the hotel turned up for breakfast. This should provide them with quite a clear message.
