Weymouth Hotels

The sweeping golden crescent of Weymouth Bay has become a long standing favourite for British holiday makers in the humid summer months. Thanks to its Southern location, Weymouth enjoys a much more balmy climate than the rest of the country. The shimmering coastal waters become a welcoming watery playground for families, local and tourist alike, who flock to this surprisingly temperate slice of the English Channel when the sun is out for sailing and swimming, and bustling night life.

Things to see

If you're visiting Weymouth to bask in the sun on soft pale sands, then Weymouth Beach will be the main attraction. The wide arc of this sunbather's haven stretches across a large area, and is perfect for families and couples alike. Beach sports are popular too, so whether you prefer building gargantuan sand castles with the kids, a refreshing swim in the ocean, or some fast paced beach volleyball, there's plenty to enjoy. The town centre offers a pleasant counterpoint to the beach itself, with a variety of restaurants and cake shops offering their delectable sweet and salty wares. The town is very well known for its night life, with a number of pubs and bars drawing in the party crowds. For something a little different, you can also head to the Sea Life Park, where manta rays and sea turtles will glide effortlessly over your head in the underwater viewing tunnel.

Hotels in Weymouth

Thanks to its popularity as a holiday destination, hotels in Weymouth offer a wide range of accommodation. From discount hotels and bed and breakfasts, to larger family sized accommodation, you can find almost any kind of hotel in Weymouth to suit the nature of your visit. Enjoy a complimentary breakfast and find out the quickest ways to the attractions you want to see, before heading back to enjoy free internet access and cable TV after a hard day at the beach. Couples are also spoilt for choice, as there's a number of cosy, secluded hotels to be found nearby.

Where to stay

For those that want quick and easy access to the beach, or not have too far to walk when indulging in the saltly hit of local favourite chips and cheese after a night out, then staying along the Esplanade will be ideal. Just a few moments from the coastal path, and briny sea air, you'll have great views of the sweeping bay too. Couples and families may want to head to the Melcombe Regis area, close to the Sea Life Centre – you'll still be close to the vibrancy of the beach and centre, but have somewhere a little quieter to enjoy in the evenings.

How to get to Weymouth

Weymouth is easily reachable from the A354 via the A35 for those arriving by car. Travelling in by train is always a good option however, thanks to the location of Weymouth Station (only minutes from the beach), and the fact that in the summer it can be difficult to park. If you're flying into London from an domestic or international destination, then Waterloo Station runs a train service direct to Weymouth. There are a number of local taxi services and buses in the town, as well as a ferry service that serves the nearby Channel Islands of Jersey and Guernsey.
