Enjoyed an Evening Bar meal with stunning views over Chesil Beach and Weymouth. Attentive and swift service with good food too. Great choice of Ice Cream flavours!

I stayed at the Heights Hotel for two nights, with a family group and we had dinner in the hotel restaurant on the first night there. The public rooms are excellent but the bedrooms are small, with poorly designed and equipped bathrooms. Hotel staff are most helpful and pleasant however and the dining room has unbeatable views over Portland Harbour,... More

Stopped off here after an unsucessful visit to the lobster pot, whose tables were mostly reserved. Views of Chesil beach from the cafe/bistro area were great. Coffees were nice and hot and my daughter had a lovely Pirate milkshake and nicely flavoured cake of the day. Little bit pricey but overall well worth the visit.

My friend from America treated me to an Afternoon Tea here. It was shockingly awful for £30 we both expected much more. The trifle was so bad we couldn't eat it and being pregnant I felt physically sick. The sandwiches if you could call them that were slithers of bread that did not fill us up. The best part was...

Booked for a family Sunday lunch, first impressions were very good but all went a bit downhill. We were seated and told someone would take our drinks order but waited ages and went to the bar in the end. All had carvery which was ok but the chef hacked away at the meat so ended up with chunks and scrappy... More

We live in Dorset and have visited this hotel for lunch on a number of times. The view long Chesil Beach is simply stunning and we never get further than the crab sandwiches that are equally good. It is great on a sunny day and also good when really stormy !!!

Went to Portland last weekend for a hike around the Isle and started by having a late breakfast snack here so I can only comment on the Bar/Restaurant as I didn't stay here. Enjoyed a rather tasty Brioche bun and Poached eggs and a cup of Coffee. A spacious first floor well appointed Bar/Restaurant, with comfortable seating and a magnificent... More
