I really don't know what some people expect for there money... I have just returned from a lovely couple of days in Weymouth and stayed for 1 night at the Nook. A lovely little place that I feel deserves a good review. After reading all the bad reviews I was expecting a really awful place
( and i am quite fussy) however I stayed here with my friend and our two daughters (age 6 & 7) we shared a family room (room 7).The room was exactly as it is in the photo's, with modern decor, clean fresh bedding and towels, clean bathroom, TV, Tea/Coffee facilities and a lovely sea view and all for £90, Which we thought was good value for money. The staff were really friendly and helpful, when our hot water wasn't working in the shower, they had it sorted in 5 minutes..no problem!! The location is perfect, with the beach just across the road and the shops, restaurants, bars and attractions are all on your doorstep. The bar area of the Nook is lovely and modern with a lovely little chill out area to relax in and plenty of comfy seating outside too which we took advantage of as the weather was so nice. Great cocktail menu, the piña colada that i tried was lush.
This is a guest house and not a bed & breakfast so the breakfast is not included in the price but this is stated on the website, and you can order a full English for £5.95, which we did and it was lovely and all freshly cooked to order, there are lots of other venues offering breakfasts, that may be cheaper that you can look out for too. A lot of people reviewing seem unhappy about the parking situation, but again it does state on the website there is no car park and charges will apply when parking along the seafront which can cost upto £20 a day, which is why we used the park at my drive website and paid £6 per day to park on a residents drive just a few streets away...No problem !! After checkout at 11am we were able to leave our bags in another room so that we could enjoy another full day without carrying our bags everywhere, which was really helpful.
Yes there is a lot of loud noise from the bar below, and some people may not be able to cope with this as it does continue til the early hours, but both our girls fell asleep ok and slept through the night and once my friend and I stopped chatting after midnight we both slept ok too, but once again the website does make it clear that there may be loud noise at night Especially on the weekends so I think it's unfair for people to complain so much when they could have chosen somewhere quieter. The Nook caters for all ages, ( we are 43 & 45) but if you prefer a more 'old school' B&B then it may not be for you, all in all we had a really lovely weekend and enjoyed staying at The Nook and will definately return next summer.
