This was a one night stay on Friday 11th September at a discounted online rate for a single room with shower. After making the booking I was contacted almost immediately by Jonathan in reception to see if I wanted a parking permit - great service !, considering it's a tricky place to get a space, being on the main esplanade....

Spent two nights here as the support crew to a Weymouth Challenge triathlete with a double sea-view room and single at the rear. Let's not beat about the bush, it's a typical sea-side hotel and in modern terms, yes past its glory years, but it's very clean, smart and well furnished. What makes it stand out from the crowd (and... More

Very friendly hotel in a good location, lovely views of the bay and easy walk to the harbour. The staff were very cheerful and patient with us as we came in and out all weekend while supporting a runner in the Weymouth Challenge long course

Just returned from a long weekend away staying at the Rex Hotel. Very enjoyable stay. Paid extra and stayed in one of the rooms on the front which overlooked onto the seafront which was lovely. The breakfast in the morning had a wide variety of hot and cold food which was good. From this hotel you can access all of... More

Stayed over one night while working, rooms 8 and 9 very small and could do with modernising, but served a purpose at a decent price, staff where all excellent and very helpful. Wifi worked but slowly. Weymouth surprised me by being a pleasant place to visit.

Great location near the old harbour in Weymouth. Tiny and very budget-feel room. It was probably clean, but just felt a bit grubby, Very friendly and efficient staff. Good wi-fi. Public areas (bar and lounge) very dated and lacking in any sort of atmosphere or quality. One of the most basic breakfast-buffets I've ever come across - just a few... More

Excellent and very friendly staff. Service was outstanding and the meals in the restaurant were very tasty and great value.the bathroom was very big and the bed was very comfortable. The bar was always open and was slightly cheaper than some pubs. this is the 8th time we have stayed here and will come back again.

The hotel was expensive £135.00 a night, our double bed was the smallest I had ever seen. There was no soap in the bathroom and I had to ask for some, only to be told they were short of it. The shampoo and bath wash was never replaced so had to use my own. The hotel did not reflect the... More
