Reviewed 9 March 2014

Came here with my partner for a weekend break. We found that we were welcomed on our arrival and were booked in very promptly. We had to pay refundable £20 deposit for a parking permit which was ideal as we managed to get parked right outside the hotel. I would Imagine that in the main holiday season if you are staying to take the additional garage parking that is offered at £8 per day. The room was pleasant and we were on the 3rd floor with a sea view which was nice. Sleep quality was very good. The location is excellent right in the heart of Weymouth with plenty bars and shops around the corner from the Hotel. We only had breakfast on the last morning we were there and it was very good, we did not eat an evening meal but were recommended it was very good, we opted to eat at the Dorset Burger Company which was excellent and only round the corner. So in all I would recommend this hotel if you are going to Weymouth it very good

Just spent a lovely week at the Rex. Friendly, helpful staff led by a charming and efficient manager!

Excellent food well served and presented. Cosy comfortable rooms well heated, some with excellent views over the beautiful Weymouth Bay.

Have visited the Rex for several years now and it never fails to impress so will certainly be coming again in the future.

Room Tip: Select a sea view room - it's well worth it! PS. Free Wi Fi throught the hotel.

Beautiful hotel in excellent location, beach just across the road and town to the rear of the premises. We booked the double room with sea view, balcony and four poster bed, and we were not disappointed. The service from all the staff was first class and professional, everybody was very friendly. We will definately be returning soon.

Just recently returned to eat for a second time at this hotel close to the promenade at Weymouth. We were very impressed by the quality of the fish course - sea bass - and the freshness of the vegetables cooked to perfection. The crayfish tails as a starter were again fresh and tasty.

The ambience was subdued elegance and the staff (led by John, manager/bar manager) were friendly and attentive.

We would easily recommend eating in the restaurant of the Hotel Rex and had two memorable evenings there, hopefully to return in the future

We stayed here for 3 nights just after half-term.

PROS:
Fantastic service from really lovely staff - absolutely nothing is too much trouble
Excellent food both nights we had dinner
Really good choice at breakfast (including delicious home cooked ham and/or cheese and tomatoes, smoked haddock etc)
Very nice towels; changed daily and a proper big 'bath sheet' each (one of my pet niggles)
Really nice quality individual toiletries in the bathroom and re-freshed daily
Fabulous location looking right over the Esplanade (although might be noisy in high Summer)
Very easy access from the Station
Lovely Geogian and Victorian features in the public rooms; high sash windows, cornices and coving etc.
Very warm and cosy

CONS:
Terrible pillows - we will definitely stay again but will bring our own!
Double bed only and not very comfortable
Every particle of character stripped out of the bedrooms and coridoors - looks like a Premier Inn
Very tired and in need of much TLC
Poor quality breakfast sausages!

OVERALL:
We had a really good stay thanks to the lovely staff and brilliant service, so despite the 'cons' listed above, we would return as we spent very little time in our room, and definitely recommend .

Room Tip: We asked, and apparently Rooms, 1, 2 and 4 are the best! We had room 5 - seaview double which had a...

Stayed over the half term for a few days after the 'floods' and rather than stay B&B decided that this Hotel seemed good value,,,,,We were not wrong. Our Sea view room with Balcony gave us a good view of the Bay and was very Clean if not a little 'Tired' in places..The bed was to die for, so comfy we both slept really well. Breakfast was also good, and was served with a smile by very good staff.......would we recommend this hotel.......YES.

Room Tip: Balcony rooms are very good.
