So my partner booked this hotel for a weekend break for us for my birthday. I'm currently pregnant so he wanted to take me away for a relaxing weekend. Turned up Friday, checked in, no mention of a party due to be happening on the Saturday evening. Room was comfortable but more like 2 single beds pushed together rather than...

Thank you for your feedback. We'd like to respond to some of your comments. We are sorry you felt disappointed with your stay. You raised your concerns at the time of stay, for which we thank you.

As always we had a fabulous weekend at The Heights, we are Island Club Members and receive a 10% discount on B&B prices. We were again given an exclusive luxury room which is just superb, we cannot fault the rooms or the food in this hotel. The restaurant and bar is very cosy and warm with a wonderful view back...

What a stay. On arrival the view took my breath away. The staff at reception were warm and friendly and asked if I needed any help with my luggage. The room was spotlessly clean and comfortable and warm and cosy as it was a cold day. The food was excellent. The best food I've had at any hotel Ive stayed...

I visited the hotel with my wife, with a view to using The Heights as a base for running a landscape photography workshop, I'm a professional photographer. Dorset is a wonderful county and has some fabulous places to visit and we found the Heights a good starting point to visit some of the surrounding highlights. The Hotel location speaks for...

We stayed over on a business trip early Nov and we're delighted with our accommodation. Beautiful breathtaking views, lovely bedroom and ensuite. The staff were so helpful we couldn't have asked for more. We had a super stay, watching the fireworks over Chisel beach and the bay whilst enjoying dinner and drinks in the hotel restaurant....perfect!

Thanks for your feedback, we appreciate your comments. It's great that the weather held out, to enable clear viewing across the bay. Fireworks are indeed best enjoyed whilst dining and we're delighted to see that this occasion was no exception. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Great Location for sunset. Friendly reception staff and a pleasant hotel. The rooms on ground floor were rather warm. Large CH pipe running through room kept the room a tad too warm. Had to sleep with a window open in October. Some colleagues had a room with a patio door instead of a window and couldn't leave those open at...

On arriving at the hotel we were taken away by the beautiful views and that was just from the car park. Our room was clean and comfortable, my only criticism is that although you can ask for a bat mat, the bath should have the anti slip grip in the bath and the WiFi was not very strong in the...

There are plenty of other reviews commenting on the outstanding views from the public rooms of this unprepossessing looking hotel, so I won't elaborate. However the view from most bedrooms falls very short of this - either dominated by a BT mast, a garage or concrete walls. There are, however, some rooms which look out over a beach garden. But...
