“great position tired hotel”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2010

This hotel is in a prime spot with wonderful sea views .The staff are lovely and nothing was to much trouble.But like many seaside hotels it requires a lot of t.l.c. The bathroom is old and dated as is the bed and furniture.The restaurant is in the cellar, very dark and gloomy.And it also caters for coach parties.

The staff were excellent unfortunately we booked in at the time of a coach trip, and although we paid a premium price for B&B (£169.00 per night), the breakfasts were awful, the choice was very basic, cheap brand cereals, bread etc, it was all very unappetising & frankly we didnt eat it.

Although from the outside this hotel looks lovely and the staff are friendly and helpful, if you want a quiet weekend out of season then this is not the hotel for you! Because the building has listed building status, there is no double glazing or any form of sound insulation. Normally this would not be a real issue but unfortunately there is a pub nearby which plays very loud music very late on Friday and Saturday nights right near the rear of the Rex. In addition, the narrow road running along the back of the building not only seems to be a popular route for all of the drunken revellers who seem to think they can only be heard if they shout and shriek very loudly at 2,3,4 & 5am, but is also a very busy through road for traffic all through the night. Finally, a special message to the guy shouting to Joe on his mobile at 4.00am on Saturday - WE ALL HEARD YOU EVEN IF JOE DIDN'T!

This was our second time at the Hotel Rex after going on our own last year, this year we returned with our parents and once again the stay was lovely.
The staff are exceptional. The same members as last year and just as happy, friendly, helpful and hard working as before.
The rooms are fairly basic, but very clean and comfortable. The hotels location is brilliant for the promenade and the harbour side.
This year we had our evening meal in the hotel restaurant on two nights of our stay and the food was excellent, with very friendly service.
Our parents had a very enjoyable time, so come on your 40 something’s, get your mums and dads down to visit a traditional British sea-side resort.
The Forte is well worth a visit.
We will definitely be going back to Weymouth in the future and the Hotel Rex will be the hotel of choice.

this was our second stay at The Rex this year and once again we had an exellent time. On both occasions we had sea facing rooms which were spacious and spotless. The staff were 1st class and the meals were v good. The hotel is welcoming and friendly and you certainly were made to feel at home . Nothing was too much trouble and the staff were great . Well worth a visit .
