This impressive hotel sits in the best spot on Weymouth's seafront and is the largest and grandest in a long run of hotels. The public areas were nicely decorated and comfortable. The "premier" grade bedroom was quite stunning, located in a bay window with spacious seating area and four-poster bed (which wasn't quite as comfortable as hoped but perfectly OK) and luxury bathroom. In fact it was almost up there with some much more expensive 4 and 5 star rooms.
Food was excellent (though the same as all the other "Bay" hotels) and the restaurant staff were mostly very good, friendly and helpful (and in some cases very witty!). Due to the size of the restaurant guests are required to have sittings, since we arrived late we ended up with a 7.30 sitting. A bit later than we'd have liked, but it was OK.
The reception kindly provided a council parking permit to use on-street parking in the local parking zone. There are a few spaces outside the hotel, 3 out of 4 nights we were lucky and found a space there. Otherwise there are other nearby streets and also a pay & display immediately behind the hotel, costing £3 for 7pm-9.30am. We used this one night as couldn't find another space. So not too much really if you had to park there every night.
Enjoyed it all in all. Nicely refurbished hotel in a good central spot.
