“So much to do & see makes #2 Maritime House an ideal base from which to operate”
Reviewed 26 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We arrived on 6 July following a long journey from Matlock to find everything in perfect order in terms of facilities, equipment and cleanliness. We walked the 'Portland loop' of the SWCP - outstanding coastline - rugged in parts, easier walking in other parts. The views from the flat are stunning. Our visit coincided with the Dorset Seafood Fest in Weymouth harbour over the weekend - what an excellent event. Used the frequent #1 bus service to avoid any parking difficulties in Weymouth. The seafood was delicious, and in the afternoon there was a live, local band called Replay knocking out 60s hits for 3 hours on Brewers Quay - very good entertainment with 100s of people enjoying themselves. Everything is close by - The Pulpit Inn, Eight Kings, Lobster Pot, Prezzo (Weymouth) are all good quality eating establishments. Book a visit and have fun.

“A great week at Portland Bill.”
Reviewed 25 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a really great week. Accommodation is simple but comfortable - all we needed. We were able to use the apartment as a base from which we could see much of beautiful Dorset, and the good weather helped. The building work mentioned by previous guests had finished, which was good. All in all, it was a restful, peaceful holiday.

“A hassle free 4 night break!”
Reviewed 3 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Ok, they're doing up the building - but in all honesty with us that meant only a little noise from the workmen outside and for us it was a good base with an outstanding view.
Everything you need is in the apartment, and getting in/out was easy.
Chris is a good guy, he wants you to have a good time and make the most out of your stay - got to say that walk you suggested to the lighthouse was lovely .
Thanks Chris

“Great location... great apartment... will visit again”
Reviewed 21 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

I was a little concerned about booking this apartment after reading the reviews from last September. However my fears were totally unfounded! This place is great and the studio flat was spotlessly clean and spacious. The views from the window overlooking the ocean are superb and there is an excellent spa in the on- site hotel.There are good pubs locally and an easy bus ride into Weymouth - so a great location.

Whilst some building work is still going on any noise was minimal and no work going on during the weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed our week and the good weather was a bonus. Would recommend this apartment and very reasonably priced - so will return no doubt.
