Reviewed 1 February 2012

I had booked to stay elsewhere but had a unpleasant reception and decided to cut my losses & find an alternative. Wow! It was like chalk and cheese & my hosts were attentive and helpful.

Stayed NYE & new years day, found the beach house tricky to park close by, you have to wait for a parking spot, but the B&B could not be faulted , it dont big it self up to be the best , like some others do, and fail,,, but what you have is a very clean, friendly B&B , next to the beach & a 2 min walk into the town centre and harbour . Breakfast is plentifull and cooked excellently , staff are helpfull and have good local knowledge , and when we asked for a iron and ironing board it was promptly brought to our room, I think some rooms have been refurbished and the rest are being done this spring , the stairs are not a problem like some people report, we had a family room for 2 of us and it was very big, overall very good and would recommend . ;-)

The Beach House is situated directly to the sea on the esplanade, our single rooms has stunning views at the English Channel.
We stayed 5 nights in two single rooms, which shares one bathroom. All rooms are spotless clean, nice furnished, equipped with basin, tea and coffee making facilities, freeview telly and free wifi. Joy and Laura are very kind and helpful, the breakfast has rich variety and was very tasty.
We loved our hole stay at the Beach House, there's nothing to criticise.
There's no own car park, but you'll find a space in a short walking distance, in low season it was easy to find a space next to the entrance.
The Beach House is a great start for exploring Weymouth, the Isle of Portland and the hole Jurassic Coast.

Like any pretty seaside town the best view is looking at it, so why stay in the middle of it?
The Beach House is set on the East end of the esplanade on the end of the line of hotels.
This gives it the perfect view down the beach to the town ( unlike the others in the row which just face out ), It's just a 10 min pleasant stroll, while being far enough away to keep it quiet.

Weymouth is an old town designed for tourists coming by train, it never will have the parking for everyone to come by car, but the hotel also benefits from a quirk of the rules which means parking in the bays in the triangle is allowed which the signs wouldn't suggest.
We stayed on the bank holiday weekend and had no trouble, however you will need to be able to parallel park ;)

To the hotel it's self.
It's very clean and well presented, as soon as you get there you know you picked the right one. The staff are genuinely warm, welcoming and have great knowledge of the area.

The stairs, don't get the problem myself, it's an old building, their fine, yes the very top ones are a little tight on the turn, but if you have no trouble walking it's fine, just don't let the misses do the packing.
The room is very well finished and clean, the view from our room ( 7 ) was superb.
Comfortable bed, all electrics required, modern bathroom. The windows are single pane sash type, but as a very light sleeper noise never bothered me once.
Just outside is the beach, really!, it's the width of a very quiet road away, what more do you want?!

Then in the morning there's breakfast, you couldn't want for anything better cooked, it's all perfect, the bacon, never had it so good and i considered myself a bacon ace!
as said on the other review even the butters the perfect temp.
But you can mix and match anything you want if you want.

All this and it's one of the keenest priced too!

The Beach House really did add to just how good our weekend in Weymouth was, and is THE perfect base.

Room Tip: Room 7 for the best view if your not unrealistic about stairs in old buildings, it really is fine.

We booked at the Beach House having read the positive reviews on this and other hotel and guest house sites, and we were not disappointed.

Our room, which was facing the sea front, was immaculately clean and remarkably quiet, and the expensive looking velvet blackout curtains made for a good nights sleep.

The proprietors were very welcoming, extremely knowledgeable of the local area and its attractions and provided extremely well cooked and varied breakfasts suitable for all tastes.

Highly recommended.

We arrived with nothing booked and wanted to be out of town but in walking distance of everything and with a sea view.1st door tried was booked up so then tried The Beach House. Greeted by very friendly host who explained that there was a room free but had shower problem over the weekend. We were showed room which was spotlessly clean and overlooked prom and beach! and we were offered room at reduced rate. Our host also found us a parking space close to B & B which was most acceptable as the rain had decided to arrive with us.
Breakfast was very acceptable - various choice and perfectly presented. And the shower
behaved itself! Would recommend to family and friends but would make them aware of steep stairs which were also quite narrow.
