Just returned from a 2 night break with Shearings. I don't understand some peoples comments, the food and service was excellent, as we're the rooms. We were on the second floor (320). Of course the weather was exceptional, so that helped enormously. The only downside I would pick, was the choice of beer. Smoothflow isn't everyone's choice of drink. But now I'm being picky. Keep up the good work!

My husband and I stayed here last weekend for our 15th wedding anniversary. We had a premier room which was lovely although the four poster bed is quite high and there is a gap between the mattress on both sides which makes getting out of bed difficult.
The room was immaculate and the staff lovely. Wayne and carly in the restaurant were really friendly as were most of staff. We are in our late fourties and it would be fair to say we were among the youngest staying but it made no differance we talked to several couples at meal times and because of the layout of the restaurant , it makes this easy to do . The parking wasn't an issue for us as we were lucky to get space but didn't want to move car all weekend then.
Would recommend this hotel to anyone and will be returning.

This is a grand building but is too run down. We had a premier room which was almost brand new so was great, with a view right over Weymouth sea front, however the windows were in such a bad state It would be freezing in the colder months, ensuite was also new so lovley. Service was good and friendly however the food in the restaurant was appalling, so bad that despite paying for half board, after the first night we booked into a local restaurant for the remainder of our stay. Also, there is NO parking, so if you are luckly enough to get a space you don't want to move your car again until you leave.

Room Tip: Don't go for anything less than a premier room - overlooking sea front are best.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. Im pleased that you found the service to be good and friendly. Im very concerned to hear about your experience in the restaurant. Should you have reported any issues a member of our friendly staff would have rectified any issues immediately. We do not have a car park but we do have a limited number of parking permits to assist our guests, these are not compulsory and guests can choose to pay for parking in a car park if they wish. We are working closely with our Chefs to improve the service provided. I look forward to welcoming you back should you return.

Went for a autumn break here with a friend what a beautiful hotel, right on the beach, was lucky with the weather, lovely views and staff were very friendly only downfall was the food & entertainment, and bar prices expensive so make sure you take plenty of dosh with you.
Rooms clean and tidy, but towel rail never got hot enough to warm them, even though there were signs be careful very hot lol. Rooms I feel need a little more attention to the decor carpets not completely clean there were stain's and bathroom spelt damp so leave the extractor fan on while you are out, this quickly resolves the matter. Restaurant welcoming, shame the food wasn't. Chefs special weren't any better either. Sausages at breakfast were so cheap and nasty full of breadcrumbs no meat. Avoid at all costs.
Atmosphere in hotel during afternoon was like waiting for god so dull and boring which was a shame as the decor was beautiful Evening's wasn't much better especially as the entertainment was limited and when there were entertainment it was guess work what time it ended, mind you some acts especially on Friday night was zzzzzzzzzzz Most guests went to bed about 9 ish. Overall I would visit again as Weymouth is a beautiful place to visit and the hotel overall gets the thumbs up just needs a little more attention to the comments made on this site, on the food and entertainment value. Thank you

Room Tip: Sea view room is a must

When I phoned the hotel I wanted to book for bed and breakfast but was told that I could only book for dinner, bed and breakfast. However, on checking there was a notice on the Reception Desk offering bed and breakfast.

They only had two sittings for dinner, this meant that the staff were really pushed to get three courses out and cleared before the next sitting. However, when the food came it was "school dinner" style, everything apart from the vegetables plated up. One of the Chef's Specials was Bangers and Mash- surely a basic not a special. Also why would a delicacy like Potted Shrimps be fried. After the first night we ate out.

They have tried to update the public rooms and the views over the bay are great but in the room we had there was little sign of attention to detail. The bathroom suite was new but the spotlight was partly out of the ceiling, the grab bar was rusting and the towel rail did not heat up. This would have been useful as one of the towels fell into the bath and it took two days before it was replaced. The bed creaked badly and was very uncomfortable.

The old fashioned yale lock meant that we could not lock the door at night and to top it all when we came back on our last evening the door was open as it had not been closed properly when housekeeping made the bed.

It would also have been nice to see the Manager during our stay but we never saw him once.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay here with us. We do offer bed and breakfast on a walk in basis however if you are traveling via coach or self drive package this option is not available as dinner is included in your package. We have a wide variety of Chefs specials and the Bangers and Mash dish is always popular. Should you have reported any issues to any of our friendly staff they would have rectified immediately for you. I have taken your comments regarding the bedrooms onboard as we constantly looking too improve our guests stays to ensure maximum comfort. The female management team work various shifts throughout the week and weekend, so it is unfortunate that you missed us. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Royal should you return.
