Just got home from having stayed at this great little place Lovely hosts ,cracking breakfast , amazing sea view from our room ( number 6 ). Superb location in the heart of everything 10 minute walk from weymouth station and on the doorstep of the beach and loads of pubs and restaurants. Bed was so comfortable and the whole apartment was spotlessly clean and fresh. We will definitely be staying here again and would recommend this guesthouse to anyone looking to stay in Weymouth.

Just returned from three nights at the Bedford Guesthouse. Reina and Grahsme were excellent hosts, our room nice with alot of space and a sea view. Breakfast was really good from cereals to a fully cooked breakfast which couldnt be faulted and sets you up for the day. The Bedford is in a great location with Weymouth beach to the front and the harbour to the rear, both just steps away. Some great restaurants and pubs set around the harbour you are spoilt for choice and so many attractions to visit on the Jurassic coast. We totally recommend the Bedford if you are staying in Weymouth Lin & Stu

We had a wonderful stay at the Bedford,with hosts Graham and Renia.The room was very clean, light and airy with a lovely harbour view. Ideally situated for the harbour,town, restaurants and shops. Full English breakfast was amazing, with a large selection of cereals, fresh fruit and yogurt and nothing was too much trouble. We would definitely stop here again,highly recommend.

Just come back from spending 5 nights at this little gem of a guest house. Renia & Graham made us feel very welcome and adhered to all the COVID-19 regulations. Our room was on the front on the 1st floor (the deluxe double) and was lovely and cosy with a seaveiw. The rooms at the back have a harbour view so it’s a bonus if you’re at the front or back of the property with the views. There is also parking with a permit provided when you check in,which provides you a zone around the hotel to park,but there is a car park in which you can use the permit in too. We also had breakfast and had lots to choose from cereal,fruit,yoghurt,toast,juices although it was always the freshly made full english for us .... beautiful ( high five to head chef graham and his choice of music that we listened too... oh and Graham’s singing 😉) The Bedford is in a perfect position (about 5mins if that)close to the town centre and shops, the harbour and the beach. We would definitely stop nowhere else if we visit Weymouth again. Reina & Graham are lovely hosts and we loved the morning banter with them both. We found that Graham was a fellow Yorkshire man and used to live not far from us,so just want to say “Aye Up” to Graham 😂 and thanks again to you both for our wonderful stay.

Awww, many,many thanks Sue for taking the time to leave us a review of your stay with us! It is very much appreciated and thank you for your lovely comments . We're delighted that you and John enjoyed your stay and I know that Graham loved catching up with you at breakfast, and putting the world to rights - apologies for the singing !! We'd love to see you both in the future and remember to book direct as it is usually cheaper then an online booking site. Take care of yourselves and hope life soon returns to normal. Hugs from Renia and Graham x
