“Enjoyable Stay”
Reviewed 18 September 2012

We stayed here for one night on our way home from our holiday in Cornwall. Lesley and Clive were very welcoming and friendly, and Clive helped with our bags.
The house was spotless, and I liked the extra touches, like flowers and chocolate in the room.
Breakfast was great, beautifully presented, and served with a smile!
I'll definitely be recommending this guest house to our friends.

My fiance and I have just returned from a relaxing weekend in Weymouth and the break was made even more special thanks to our choice of guest house. We found The Alendale to be a real gem of a place, our room was spotlessly clean, with lovely decor and a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was delicious, freshly cooked and the choice was amazing, really filled us up for the day ahead!

Room Tip: Our stay in room 2 was superb,

We stayed here at the end of Aug 2012 for 5 nights. Accomodation was in good position at the quieter end on the prom. 12 min walk to the harbour / town centre. We were in room 3 at the rear of the property, so nice & peaceful.The room was very clean & suited our needs. Well the breakfast WOW! lovely, yes you have to wait but its worth it, your on holiday people so chill out. Clive & Lesley were excellent hosts & we did not have to worry about contacting them for anything. The car park at the rear has room for 5 guest vehicles, we told Clive we never use our car once we are away, so were very happy to put ours at the rear & never had to move again. Please ignore some of the petty remarks here, stay & form your own opinion, you will not be disappointed. Considering Clive & Lesley have only been here for a couple of months with no previous experiance they should be congratulated on doing an excellent job...Phil & Maggie

Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a positive review for us, we really enjoyed your company and are glad you had a good time. Since your visit we have had a rethink of our procedures at breakfast and I am pleased to say that we are now able to serve (a still freshly cooked!) breakfast much quicker. I am sure that as time goes on we will be able to improve on this more whilst still maintaining the high standards that go with cooking to order. Please come back and try us out!

My Fiance and I had a great stay at The Alendale Guest House on 1st September 2012. The room was very clean, we had a great view of the sea. Loved the fresh flowers, chocolates and biscuits in our room, made it a little more homely. The bed was very comfortable.
Clive and Lesley were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble, even had our bacon at breakfast cooked to our liking - Me very crispy and Mark - not so crispy. Breakfast was fab, the bacon was thick and tasty as were the sausages, really set us up for the day and the fresh flowers on the table were a lovely touch too. The only complaint we have is that we wished we could stay longer. We will next time.
Thank you Lesley & Clive for looking after us and we look forward to staying with you again.

We have been going to Weymouth for the last 15 years, and whilst we usually stay in a caravan the driving back and forth from the town centre can be tiresome so we do occasionally opt for a nearby hotel. The Alendale is without doubt the best hotel we have stayed at in Weymouth and we most certainly will be going back there again. The hotel itself is situated right on the beach front and only a few minutes walk from the beach, harbour, town centre and amusements which is ideal for those that want to explore Weymouth whilst knowing they are never too far from their hotel. Guests are also able to park their cars on the hotel car park, which is an absolute treat considering many hotels along the beach front and harbour are notorious for having little to no parking resulting in the added cost of parking your car! Lesley and Clive, who are the new owners of The Alendale, were wonderful and very welcoming and they made our stay in Weymouth that extra special. When we checked in we were greeted by the lovely Lesley who welcomed us to the hotel and made us feel at home right away, Clive shortly followed and greeted us with a warm smile and showed us up to our room. We had booked the family room for a 2 night stay based on 3 adults sharing (my dad, my brother and me) and we were blown away by the standards of our room. The bright and airy room with ensuite provided my family a great base for the weekend and was to become a little home from home. We were provided with complimentary snacks and bottles of water which went down a treat after a three hour car journey and the large comfy beds were a welcoming sight when the sea air finally knock us out for the night. The cleanliness, not just of our room but the hotel in general, shows how dedicated Lesley and Clive are to providing a high quality stay for all their guests and their thoughtfulness about their guests was very touching. My brother has severe autism, so we are sometimes wary of taking him to hotels due to the added stress, but Clive and Lesley could not have been more accomodating, offering to have his breakfast ready at a certain time so he wasn't waiting, or providing him with extra sausages or bacon when they found out he only ate certain things. Things like that showed us how caring they are as many hotels have been far from accomodating to the point where we have had to cut our stay short. Not in this case. It wasn't just the accomodation that was exceptional, it was also the amazing breakfast. I can say in all my travels that Clive and Lesley do one of the best breakfasts EVER!!!! FACT!!! And the wide variety means you can mix and match and even give you breakfast a highland flare. My dad was particularly excited about trying the Scottish breakfast on offer, unfortunately Lesley apologised as she was unable to get the Scottish sausage anymore, yet low and behold the next day some Scottish sausage was on my dads plate as she had gone out of her way to track it down at a local butchers which made my dad's day! Even though you have a little wait for your breakfast, as everything is cooked fresh and to order, you are guaranteed the quality you'd expect from such a good hotel. If you do get a bit peckish whilst waiting there is plenty of fresh fruit, yogurt and cereal for you to eat until your breakfast arrives - but trust me you won't be disappointed! All in all we had a fantastic trip and we cannot wait to go back again, we were gutted that our stay was so short and after only two nights we felt right at home. We look forward to seeing you next time Clive and Lesley, many thanks for all your hospitality.

I recently stayed at the Alendale Guest House with my two young children for three nights. The hosts Lesley and Clive were very welcoming and helpful, explaining fully about breaksfast times and also about the possibility of having to move my car due to the layout of the car park. Clive very kindly offered to do this for me as long as I left my car keys in my room so this was of minimal/no disruption to me and I was happy to trust this lovely couple. In the end my car didnt have to be moved but I would rather be told of a possibility than it just being done without my consent! The room was clean and tidy and my kids loved the chocolate bars and biscuits left in our room every day (along with fresh towels and the beds remade) . And now we come to the breakfast.....I think the title says it all. The bacon was lovely and thick and the sausages were to die for. I wish I had asked Lesley her secret to making the eggs as well as I have never before or since been able to serve such perfect fried eggs. The variety for children was great in that there was fruit, cereals and toast available as well. Despite Clive and Lesley having only taken over very recently, they are doing a marvelous job and I think the previous persons comments (mum_and_kids221) are completely unfounded and out of line. Lesley bent over backwards to make sure everyhting was perfect for us and Clive's dry sense of humour gave me and my children a great start to the day. When I asked about where to eat in the evenings or places to take the children, both were able and willing to offer recomendations and there was a large selection of leafles in the lounge area for extra ideas. I would urge anybody wishing to visit Weymouth to stay at the Alendale and I cant wait to go back again!

We stayed at the Alendale last weekend and had a completely different experience to the one described by the previous reviewer.Lesley and Clive are a very friendly hosts and go out of their way to ensure that anything you require is provided.The breakfast is better than many we have been given at some five star hotels.Fresh local produce and a fantastic choice which includes kippers or even haggis if you want it.The rooms are comfortable and clean and not only tea,coffee facilities but biscuits,wafer bars and chocolate bars are provided.(by the way how did the previous reviewer know that 'homemade welcome cakes/biscuits' used to be provided if she hadn't been to Weymouth before?)We have no axe to grind and would recommend this excellent B&B to anyone and if you read the reviews so would most people.
