In planning my visit to Monkey World in May I was looking for reasonable local accommodation for two nights, but the hotels closest to Monkey World were either fully booked or very expensive. I decided to go for the 2 star Crown in Weymouth - only 14 miles away - which I thought would be "cheap and cheerful" at the price. I did not expect to find such a smartly decorated dining room with first class waiter service to a breakfast menu - no tacky self service breakfast buffet we find in many cheaper hotels these days. The room was comfortable if a little over heated. The hotel was perfectly situated for all the amenities of Weymouth - close to excellent shops, bars and restaurants. Parking was off site - the only downside of this hotel - but the walk along the harbour to the Pavilion car park with a parking pass provided by the hotel for £3 per night was very pleasant. The staff - every single one - was so polite, friendly and helpful. I have already booked for another visit in July.
