Just returned from a great 2 night break. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners. All staff were very friendly and polite. Our room ( room 3) was great and the new mattresses were fab and very comfy. Would definitely recommend and love to revisit with the family x

Our stay at Gresham was a disaster!! (Room 3) The 2 single beds were outrageously uncomfortable and we couldn't have undergone a third night of Torture!! by the second night it was unbearable.

I love this place. Karen and staff were so friendly and welcoming. Delicious breakfast and comfy bed. It is across the road from the beach and easily walkable from Weymouth station. I would definitely stay there again and recommend Gresham for a great break.

The facilities are good and our room was spotlessly clean and tidy. Breakfast was simply yummy! The location is superb - directly opposite the sandy beach and within easy walking distance to restaurants, shops and bars etc. Best of all were our hosts Karen and Chris! From sorting out a parking permit so we could park just round the corner...

We have just returned from a two night stay at The Gresham & really enjoyed it. We knew in advance that our rear facing room was quite small & the en-suite facilities were certainly a little claustrophobic. However, the room was very clean & had everything we needed. The new owners only took over a year or so ago &...
