Bottom Line

The Premier Inn Weymouth Seafront is a 106-room budget hotel, a two-minute walk to Weymouth's Georgian seaside. Travelers considering the property should note it is not, as the name would imply, on the water. It is, however, very close to a resort town and family-friendly attractions like go-kart and sand sculpture parks. The rooms are clean, and modern and there's a large accessible room available. There is a pleasant, pub-like restaurant, and up to two kids 15-and-under stay free with a paying guest. For entertaining children on rainy days, there is an indoor ball pit and playscape. Guests seeking a stay in a similarly priced bed-and-breakfast in the area should consider the Langham Hotel, instead.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

Family-friendly chain hotel with some features geared to business travelers

The Premier Inn Weymouth Seafront is a favorite for vacationing families and business travelers a like. The hotel is housed in a pale-yellow brick structure and is roomy and comfortable. Its lobby is plain and functional, with tile and carpeted flooring and a wooden reception desk backed by a wall in the Premier Inn chain's signature purple. Club chairs upholstered in a purple print offer some seating. There is no business center at this hotel, but there is a conference room for 25 people. 

Location

By Weymouth Bay in a kid-friendly Georgian town

Map of Premier Inn Weymouth Seafront

The Premier Inn Weymouth Seafront isn't actually by the seaside, but it's a two-minute walk to Weymouth Bay. The Weymouth railway station is a four-minute drive or a 17-minute walk to the hotel, and trains travel from London Waterloo to the town in about two hours and 45 minutes. The Bournemouth Airport is a one-hour drive away. The hotel is located in Lodmoor Country Park, home to Leisureranch, an amusement park that includes go-karts and bumper boats; reaching the park is a  three-minute drive or an 11-minute walk. It is a six-minute drive from the hotel to Weymouth Sea Life Tower and the Pavilion Theatre. For a bit more character, guests should walk one minute to the fast-casual restaurant, Brewers Fayre, a cozy pub in the popular UK chain. With its rustic beams, washed brick walls, and fireplaces, the restaurant is an antidote to the bland decor of the hotel and dull sprawl of the parking lot surrounding it. 

Rooms

Basic, tidy rooms with lots of the dependable chain property's signature purple decor

The rooms at the Premier Inn Weymouth are standard issue, with typical chain-hotel furnishings, and plain fabrics. Guests will find clean, comfortable digs and virtually no unwelcome surprises here. The carpets are mottled plum, as are the drapes, throws, and trim accents. Pillow-top beds are a comfy touch. Each unit has a sturdy TV, an electric kettle with tea and coffee, a rod with hangers and shelves for storing clothing, and a small desk and chair. Most units have one window, covered with sheers and cotton draperies, with views of the parking lot. Some guests have complained about noise from the rooms above them. Bathrooms are white, with tile accents, bright lighting, roomy counters, large mirrors, and shower/tub combos. Hairdryers are provided.

Features

Free breakfast for children, cheerful playroom, plus meeting room for business travelers

The focus on delivering reliable basics for family travelers makes the Premier Inn Weymouth Seafront a thoughtful budget choice for those traveling with children. Kids 15-and-under stay free and up to two of them get vouchers for a free breakfast at the Brewer Fayre next door. There is also a colorful play room with a ball pit and a jungle gym room, plus a few arcade games in the lobby. Business travelers can take advantage of the on-site meeting room (which seats up to 25 guests), and there's free parking and Wi-Fi available.
