We booked Tides for a short weekend break for a family party and weren't disappointed. We had never booked a house on TripAdvisor before so we didn't know what to expect but the nervousness was unfounded.
The property is on a split level, with the living room and kitchen\diner on the middle floor and bedrooms and bathrooms on the top floor. Al the rooms were nicely decorated, nicely appointed and very clean. The main bedroom has an ensuite which was nice, although I am used to a little more pressure in a shower but its usable. The bed is one of the comfiest I have slept in for a while.
My dad had an issue with the squeaky floors buts its not a major issue.
The house is a very short walk to the sea where there is a nice walk and views down to Portland and across the bay. Another couple of minutes and you are in the harbour area of Weymouth, with its many pubs and restaurants, so the location is ideal for exploring and entertainment.
Contact with Gillian, the owner, was superb. I would highly recommend this property and we will most definitely be returning at some point in the future.
This well furnished house is a 5 minute walk from the harbour and Nothe Fort and next to the coast path. Yet is very quiet and peaceful. The accommodation is furnished to a high standard and the house is very comfortable, with ample room for a family holiday.
We had a lovely four days here walking the Rodwell path, the old Portland quarries ( including the sculpture park) and Maiden castle (30 mins drive away). In the evenings it was so easy to walk into the harbour for dinner.
Excellent place to stay if you need off road parking for a large car - we found that most other properties this close to Weymouth town centre came with on street permit parking only, and for just one car - so having the drive and garage is a real bonus! It is also a lovely house with plenty of kitchen equipment, warm downy duvets, and well kept bathrooms.
Owner was also very accommodating of our last minute booking - we booked just a couple of days before, and they got everything sorted for our stay. Many thanks!
'Tides' is an ideal base for Weymouth and Dorset. A delightful house, so close to an unspoilt bay, yet so handy for the harbour. Very quiet. In very good condition. Space to park. We had a fabulous break here - it was just what we needed.

Second time here, great for the town and restaurants. Beach is a little further but a pleasant walk. There is a row boat across the harbour if you prefer the shorter route. Weymouth is a great holiday destination especially for children.
