I hosted my parents' 50th Golden Wedding Anniversary family celebration at The Eastney, Weymouth at the end of September and it was perfect!
It was a surprise celebration for my parents and so required a lot of 'behind the scenes' organisation. The owners, Louise and Alan could not have done more to make this the special occasion I had hoped to achieve. Their flexibility with accommodating my plans, their willingness to help and let me set things up the way I had envisaged, their attentive approach when looking after us for the event and their relentless energy in making it a wonderfully memorable weekend from start to finish are what made everything possible and such an unquestionable success!
The rooms were set up just as we needed them, accommodating a mixture of families, couples and singles. All fresh, bright and clean with information, TVs, en suites and tea/coffee facilities as standard.
From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel welcome and valued. The breakfast was delicious, beautifully presented and catered for all the variations our group of 18 required ... nothing was too much trouble. We stretched the boundaries too, as we had also arranged for them to cater for an evening meal for the celebration. This was something they don't normally do at the hotel, but it was as if they cook like this every day of their lives - wonderful service, beautiful food and a menu that was thoughtful and flexible for the range of ages and tastes we presented to them - children, young adults, dietary requirements, older generation.
The children in the party were also treated as real individuals, enjoying access to the garden and loving the chance to stage a super-league competition on the table football game - they were occupied the whole time and Louise and Alan were extremely considerate and attentive towards them. They were also very helpful in offering a selection of board games and even an area where they could do some homework before the weekend really got underway!
Even when things had calmed down after the 'main event' and some of the guests had left towards the end of the weekend, they still looked after our every need, offering teas, coffees and bar drinks (for those who had suitably recovered from the night before!), ensuring we had all we required and offering advice on good local attractions and restaurants we could visit for a final family lunch.
I really can't sing their praises more as they made what was quite a complicated event to arrange seem the simplest celebration to pull together in the world! I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a comfortable, well equipped, friendly, helpful and relaxing stay within a close distance to everything Weymouth has to offer. An excellent hotel with excellent people at its helm!
All rooms we visited in planning our event offer lovely fresh accommodation. So, I don't think...
