Stayed here overnight to celebrate a friend’s special birthday. We were met by the owners Jonnathan & Karen who made us very welcome & spent time chatting to us in the grand, contemporary residents longe. The hotel is a beautiful building grade 2 listed building which has been lovingly updated by the couple. It is a credit to their hard work. Each area that I had access to is beautifully decorated & presented. My room was a triple at the top of the building with a view over the beach & out to sea. The bed was very comfortable with lovely linen. The bathroom was compact but perfectly usable. All the fittings were of a high standard & everywhere was cleaned to a extremely high standard. An extra touch was a bottle of Prosecco, card & chocolates left for us to celebrate with the birthday girl. Breakfast was exceptional. A superb choice of cereals, fruits , nuts etc then an extensive menu to choose a cooked breakfast. All served by helpful, friendly staff. The hotel was well placed to access the beach, harbour, shops, restaurants in Weymouth. I would happily return to Gloucester House.

Property's Favourite Review
This is my 2nd time returning to Gloucester House – it certainly warrants returning. Please read my full review from June 2021 as I don’t need to repeat myself. This time I returned with my parents and they had a fantastic time in Weymouth and Gloucester House was the only place to stay. Jonathan and Karen were so welcoming to my parents from the moment they arrived at their beautiful clean premises. Thank you Jonathan and Karen for providing a most welcome break for my parents you made their few days feel like home from home. They slept well, enjoyed your cake in the lounge and engaging with Jonathan in the breakfast room in the mornings. Thank you to the fantastic team at breakfast who are so attentive – breakfasts are scrumptious. The house-keeping team do an amazing job. Thank you for providing the bucks fizz at breakfast for my dad’s birthday. Everything great you read about Gloucester House is the truth – GH is a must – please go and see for yourself. Hoping for a return as this place is special.

Gloucester House is clearly decorated and furnished to a very high standard and we were both very impressed with the finish. We were warmly welcomed by Jonathan & Karen. They are both clearly committed to providing their guests with a memorable stay. All his staff were very attentive towards us at breakfast and kept our room serviced each day. I do not believe you could find a better location for access to beach, shops, restaurants etc. Even the railway station is 4mins walk away. Highly recommended.

We stayed at Gloucester house for my parents golden wedding anniversary where they spent their honeymoon! We were greeted with a warm welcome and they had put a bottle of fizz, chocolates and a card in our room, such a lovely thought! The rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated, high quality bed linen and towels, a lot of love and thought has gone into making Gloucester house what it is. Breakfast is outstanding, fresh quality ingredients and good coffee, nothing is too much trouble. We will definitely return and I can highly recommend Gloucester house.

We stayed here for the weekend to celebrate my parents 50th anniversary. Jonathan and Karen (owners/hosts) were so welcoming and attentive, they even decorated the room with banners and left a bottle of bubbles and chocolates! The room was very clean and comfy, nice soft towels and bedding. The breakfast was outstanding, absolutely fantastic!

The Gloucester House is an elegant, charming, small hotel in a sea-front location. It has very comfortable rooms, fabulous breakfasts with locally sourced ingredients, well-chosen furnishings, and owners Jonathan and Karen are delightful hosts for whom nothing is too much trouble. It was a pleasure to stay at this hotel, one we plan to repeat as soon as possible.

Beautiful decor, ours had a sea view and had an extra day bed that we used as a sofa. The owners Jonathan & Karen are very friendly and welcoming, the hotel is spotless and the breakfast was amazing, freshly cooked to order. The location was just perfect for us on the sea front, near to many restaurants and pubs. On recommendation from Jonathan we ate at Rockfish which was very tasty, had all the fresh fish of the day, mussels were to die for! We will definitley be back to Gloucester House soon
