From the moment we arrived at the Old Harbour View B&B we knew we were in for a treat. The property is situated right on the harbour of Old Weymouth, a mere stones throw from the sea.
As soon as we pulled up in the car Peter and Anna were there to greet us with a warm welcome, broad smiles and a piece of homemade lemon cake (which sadly put my best baking efforts to shame)! After a long journey there is nothing better than to sit a cosy lounge with a warm cup of coffee and delicious piece of cake.
Tastefully decorated throughout, nothing is left to chance in this B&B, with each handpicked object and ornament with its own tale to tell. The room itself was delightful and included a sea view.Whilst on the small-side, this did not impact on the enjoyment of our stay and Peter and Anna have made the best use of the space.
We couldn't have wished for better hosts; they went out of their way to offer us local information, from the best walks to the liveliest pubs. Constantly seeking to enhance our stay, they lent us a map and offered us an umbrella, when the weather became unpredictable. Anna even gave us a little piece of cake to take on our walk.
The breakfast, was without doubt the best English breakfast my husband and I have ever eaten. We have stayed in some of the best hotels in the world and they haven't come close to the standard of breakfast that Peter lovingly prepared for us. The portion sizes were generous, the produce local and well prepared and the flavours, to die for. Peter isn't shy with butter and cream, so this breakfast was not for the lighthearted - but hey we were on holiday so that was exactly what we wanted!
Overall superb. Great value, great hosts, great location and great breakfast. We will definitely be returning in the near future.
