Our stay was amazing! The room was lovely and clean, came with all basic amenities. Jonathan and Karen are amazing hosts and their staff were wonderful. Jonathan gave great recommendations of places to see and they were very accommodating & informative and made our stay very enjoyable. I would recommend anyone to stay here if they are planning to come to Weymouth. Breakfast was also delicious there was a variety of cold buffet breakfast foods and cooked breakfast dishes which was amazing as we could try a different breakfast dish each morning

I was visiting Weymouth to participate in my first Ironman event and booked Gloucester House almost 1 year in advance based on the super-central location and excellent reviews. My wife and parents joined me, so we had two rooms with a beautiful sea view. I’ve stayed in many hotels of different sizes and standards over the years but cannot think of two more welcoming hosts than Jonathan and Karen. They were only too happy to help us get organised, share tips on the local area and arrange an early 5am(!) breakfast for race day. Jonathan took a genuine interest in all of the guests -what a lovely couple. The hotel itself is tastefully decorated, blending the historic building with modern cool decor and furnishings. It was an absolute pleasure to stay at Gloucester House and we hope to stay there again one day.
