“Really Good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2012

A short break last w/end and a lovely one at that. Mark & Pam lovely hosts and nothing too much trouble from carrying bags to booking a taxi.
The 4 poster room we had was a good size & well equiped, it could do with heavier curtains to block out more light but given the view no real complaints.
Slept well except for a "Jaimie" outside one night (early morning actually) who should have taken his own advcie to "walk away" "walk away"!
Breakfast very good: all freshly cooked and plenty of fruit, juice, cereals, toast, coffee etc, etc.
Would recommend to anyone (including friends & family) if ever they're going to Weymouth.

Room Tip: Sea view obviously worth it & our room had a lovely sitting area in front of huge bay window mak...

My husband and I recently visited The Bourneville Hotel in Weymouth for a few days. Location is great,across the road from the beach,and just around the corner are all the shops and lovely Weymouth harbour. After looking on their website I decided to book a seaview, four poster bed room,which looked lovely. On arriving Mark was very helpful and took our things up to our room.Its a good size bedroom with nice size bathroom,with an excellent view across the road to the beach,with a seated area in the window to watch the world go by.Tea,coffee,and hot chocolate in room,along with hairdryer.The only thing I would say about the room is that it does need a lick of paint,and some of the ceiling paper needed replacing,other than that,room spotless. Breakfast great,orange juice,cereals,fruit and yoghurts laid out for you to help yourself. Cooked breakfast consisted of bacon,sausage,egg,beans,hash brown,tomato, with as much toast (brown,white or 'bit of both')and tea as you liked. Overall a lovely place to stay,will definitly come back,and have recommended it to our friends

Room Tip: A seaview room was lovely,but the rest of the rooms look just as comfortable.

Just spent 4 nights in Weymouths Bourneville Hotel - what a Gem!
Situated on the Esplanade just behind the harbour, its location is excellent for the beach and the Old Harbour with excellent sea views. We stayed in room 15 at the top of the hotel with our 15 year old son. The room was Ideal, having a double bed, a single bed and a further single bed in a seperate area, allowing for privacy (almost like having adjoining rooms). The room itself was decorated and fitted out to an excellent standard - very clean with a sizable and well equipped bathroom.

The breakfast was excellent; Full english every day plus a choice of fresh fruit, cereals, toast, etc. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners Mark & Pam who run a first class establishment.

Having stayed in many B&B's & Hotels in Weymouth, this is in my opinion by far the best.

We booked by E mail and had a reply almost instantly
On arrival we were greeted as if we were returning friends.
Mark and his wife as well as the other staff could not have done any more to make our weekend break better
The room was as described (No 4 ) with a perfect sea view
The Breakfast was of a Quality not matched by a 5 star hoteland everything fresh and of the highest standard
There was even a nice little bar at very competitive prices
Our Thanks to Mark and Family
The only downside was we were only staying 2 nights but we shall return
