    “As great a position as the house is in, that wasn’t enough to make the property one to recommend.”


    It looked and felt dirty - floors & skirting boards, blinds, showers, kitchen utensils, under sofa……all dirty, looked like it had a quick surface clean. Odorous smells of damp, filthy windows that look like they haven’t been cleaned in months. Garden - get the tree cut back so seats not covered in branches, leaves, bird poo - needed big clean every day we were there, also no parasol?? Many cupboard doors didn’t fit properly, and hard ti close, esp fridge freezer. Broken window pane in lounge. Not enough toilet rolls left, no kitchen roll, not enough dishwasher tablets, no salt and pepper, the basics that we expect to find in a self catering property, especially at this price. Only one set of house keys - key safe not easy for elderly parents who can’t see the digits and use small buttons easily, as well as remembering code. A number of lights didn’t work. The smell of damp still strong. Coasters and placemats in dining room filthy. One double mattress the springs have gone, massive dip, causing bad back each morning. Walls dirty, marked, paint peeling off in at least one of main bedrooms, really needs urgent redecoration, a handyman and a thorough deep clean. Summary - great location, let down by lack of cleanliness and attention to detail. Very evident that this is a popular house that gets booked regularly due to location and brochure photos, and it never gets the time to be fixed and cleaned properly. Had we not had the 30% discount due to a bedroom and bathroom not being able to be used because of damp, we would have been very unhappy at paying full price for this property - the brochure photos mask the reality.

This Grade II listed gem has been completely refurbished to offer bright and contemporary accommodation right on the harbour side, with exceptional views across the harbour and Weymouth bay.

Stepping into the hallway you find a spacious dining room with space for everyone to gather around the table and share a delicious meal whilst enjoying views over the harbour.

The kitchen sits at the heart of the home and, with its wide breakfast bar, you can gather together as you plan your days or share the cooking.

Also on the ground floor you will find a beautiful family bathroom, drenched in light with the clever opaque roof light.

With stylish slipper bath and large separate shower.

Quietly tucked away at the back of the property is a cosy double bedroom, with a cute window nook.

Six steps lead up to the enclosed garden which has been tastefully laid top patio and faux lawn with plenty of seating areas.

This sun trap is a real treat on the harbour side.

The first floor offers a large sitting room with elevated views over the harbour and space for everyone to catch up on their favourite TV shows together.

You will also find a twin bedroom, family shower room and a large double bedroom with Juliette balcony with views over the garden.

Set in the heart of Weymouth’s historic harbour you are perfectly located for exploring all Weymouth has to offer on foot.

The row boat ferry that crosses the harbour is just a moments’ walk out of the front harbour and drops you just a moments’ walk from Weymouth’s award-winning beach.
