Just spent 6 nights with a coach party and had a great time. The location is excellent and as we had a front facing room we had a super view of the sea, beach, tower and even the harbour was visible. The decor needs updating in places and new sofas in the bar would be good. However, it was very...

From point of booking we had good communication from the hotel. On hearing that it was a birthday celebration they offered to decorate the table for the evening meal which was very kind. Rooms...

After deciding on a few days in Weymouth without prior booking we looked at a few and some were rather poor standard , The Rex was very nice , good food and although the room was only available for 2 nights they had no issue with finding us another room across the landing. Reception service was excellent & polite -...

Friendly staff welcomed us for our overnight stay at the Rex Hotel. The hotel was very comfortable and clean. The attentive bar / restaurant staff made sure we had everything we wanted. There was a varied menu to suit all tastes and the food was cooked to perfection. Would certainly stay at the Rex Hotel again and recommend.

The hotel is in a nice position on the sea front but really needs some updating. The bed was pretty ancient as was the decor and plumbing. Add to this a very mediocre breakfast with big band sounds blaring at 8:00 am..we won't return in a hurry.

In a few words, "A lovely hotel" only trouble we had was with parking, but this was easily solved by buying a couple of hours on the public car park near the Sky Tower, which is about 150 yards away. Then in the evening when things have become quieter move it to a place with a hotel pass (deposit £20...

We stayed for 3 nights and had a room at the back of the hotel, which was quiet and very spacious, particularly the en-suite. Everything was clean and the towels were changed daily. Tea & coffee making facilities were in the room, with good supplies (including replenished biscuits!). This hotel had a bar and communal areas, all of which were...
