“Perfectly Placed Hector”
Reviewed 30 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This was our second stay at Hector, and it's perfectly placed to enjoy all that Weymouth has to offer, while still being peaceful and relaxing. It's clean and tidy, and has everything you need for a self-catering holiday. The gated mews means it's safe enough for young children and also means you can park your car and leave it there if you intend to stay within the resort. We'd definitely recommend it and will no doubt being staying again in the near future.

“Perfect Cottage in Weymouth ”
Reviewed 19 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Our second visit to Hector , and as before it was lovely . Located in the south harbour area , Shire Horse Mews is great . The cottage is clean , very comfortable , well furnished with everything you need . Only a few minutes from the harbour or Nothe Fort, and about a 5 minute walk into Weymouth it's ideal for everyone . Secluded with secure covered parking area, you can sit outside in the evening sun by the front door and just enjoy the quiet . I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Weymouth , you don't need sea front views when you have this cottage . And the sea is a minutes stroll away - lovely walk around the little bay to Nothe Forte . We will always return X thankyou

“Perfect for walking to different areas of Weymouth.”
Reviewed 15 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Nothing really negative to say. Excellent location giving access to Newton's Cove which is rugged and in great contrast to Weymouth bay.The cottage is lovely and three toilets a luxury.Provision of towels and linen a bonus.

“Everything we needed was supplied, well equipped and well present cottage.”
Reviewed 25 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Fully equipped kitchen, nice welcome pack of cookies, milk in the fridge, tea & coffee. All information that was needed was supplied within one email, access to free wifi, secure parking and area for children to play. Within a few minutes walk to the harbour and town centre. The cottage has three toilets, which is great with a family, everything you could possibly want, there is lots of information about the local area available to look at, if you need some inspiration on where to visit. Would definitely stay again.

Rented this cottage for my son and his girlfriend over Christmas and they had a lovely stay. It's in a good position to walk to shops/restaurant/beach etc. which was useful as they didn't have a car.
I liked the fact that it was behind secure gates and the row of cottages is very pretty, would definitely use it again.

“great location, great property”
Reviewed 13 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Gated property so felt secure. Great location for exploring Brewers Key and the town. Also a lovely walk along the Nothe right on the doorstep. The house was very clean and comfortable with thoughtful little touches like tea and biscuits for our arrival. Also felt the owner was interested in our stay and wanted to make our holiday as good as possible. Definitely plan to stay again

“Perfect holiday home, perfect location and cannot fault it!!”
Reviewed 19 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Immaculate house in a gated mews, with parking space. Every facility you need for a lovely holiday. Even a fan, which we were grateful for! Constant hot water and three toilets!!
Great to have a television in the bedroom too!! This house is just perfect, go for it!!
It really is a perfect location for everything. Two minutes walk to Brewers Quay, where we had breakfast every morning and then we walk over the bridge to the shops or beach. No need to use the car at all. Can't wait to go back!
A look round all the antique shops etc. in Brewers Quay is a must too. Lots of restaurants where you can sit outside to eat or drink and watch the boats. Fab!!
