We had a good weekend break (22/24 Sept) at the Berkeley Hotel with Harry Shaw, with a good welcome on arrival given the keys and cases were put in your room very quickly.
All areas and rooms were in good condition (they were redecorated towards to end of last Year). Meal times are: Breakfast 8:30 am and Dinner at 6 pm, the dining area and Bar/entertaining are on the lower ground floor.
Breakfast was very good with good selections and was served hot, some waitress's had gloves on as the plate and food was hot. You were asked to tell your waiter what you wanted for evening meal (Menu is on the table when you sat down), and at evening meal again you were asked what you wanted for Breakfast.
As I am a Coeliac, - Gluten free food, the Hotel catered very well - I just brought my own bread for toasting and frying which they did. They have Gluten free soups and gravy which was very good, all the waiters knew I was a Coeliac (had been briefed by management - as they knew at time of booking). Waiter staff greeted you before you sat down, at all times - Breakfast / Dinner. When going through the Menu they told me what I could not have...as a Coeliac, but gave you other options.
The food was cooked to perfection and during the meal they came around with any extras if you needed any more.
The service in the Dining room was spot on, very well organised, the best porridge I have eaten, when I asked about the Gluten Free, they use Heinz Gluten Free soups and Morrison's Gluten Free porridge. The Waiters said that they have a few people each week which need Gluten Free food and are well conversed with their needs.
Make sure you tell the Hotel of your needs etc at time of booking or your travel agent.
Our room (1) was on the ground floor it had high ceiling ample cupboard space, tea maker, hair drier. TV. Bathroom was clean and had a shower. The room was a few steps away to the stairs down to the Dinning room, the room was clean and was the linen, beds were nice & comfy had good nights sleep, room had neutral Décor.
Room was warm as the Kitchen was nearly underneath... there is a Kitchen Ventilation fan which comes on just before meal times for a short time which you can hear. The lift is next door, again you can just hear a hum when it is use, did not really notice it, even in the late evening.
Shops were about 5 minutes walk away, and the beach just over the road. There is a small Café close by, the owners moved from Earlsdon in Coventry to Weymouth last year to set up the 123 Café - they will welcome anybody from Coventry to call in.
Yes, we will be back, next time for a longer stay - could not fault the service, food or the Hotel, many people in coach party also said that!!
