“Great apartment at a great price”
Reviewed 29 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

lovely stay - nice apartment within easy walking distance to Portland Bill (great breakfast at Lobster Pot café).
I agree with other reviews there is a lot of building work + scaffolding around Maritime House but we stayed at weekend when builders were not working so did not affect us - will look great when finished.
Good value for money - makes cheap weekend away break

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review it is greatly appreciated. We hope you will visit again next year to see the incredible changes to the building next year.

Thank you for staying with us and we look forward to seeing you on your next visit to the Isle of Portland

“Good apartment, terrible view, awful noise...”
Reviewed 19 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

person found this review helpful

We stayed here for a few days, and had no problem with the apartment itself.
However, terrible view of a building site from our window, and awful lot of noise at 8AM. (advertised as very quiet)
The building and the area looks like a post nuclear war zone... Just see the pictures.
Again: the apartment itself was fine, but for the same price (and for much less) we stayed in really really beautiful places.

Dear Guest,

We are pleased to hear there was no problem with the apartment.The building is the former Ministry of Defense Underwater Weapons Admiralty Establishment built in the 1950's. However, before arrival information was sent in your confirmation letter informing you that there was building works taking place and that it will be noisy between 8am and 4pm. We believe that all the necessary information was given in time prior your visit.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Your comments are greatly appreciated. We hope that you would visit us again next year to experience the changes to the building and the impressive views.

Once again thanks for staying with us.

Regards

“Ignore the building site and it's a great place to stay”
Reviewed 25 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Good quality room with fully equipped kitchen area and bathroom. The building works did not cause.us any problems as they only worked 08.00-17.00. Nice gentle stroll to Portland Bill lighthouse to watch the sun set. Be aware the gate to the footpath is locked after sunset. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay and would use it again if we were in the area..

“A peaceful getaway”
Reviewed 29 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Fantastic studio apartment with a spectacular view. The studio is in a lovely historical building, and is close to Portland Bill. A great, polite, happy, pleasant host, and a very clean and tidy room. Would definitely recommend and would love to stay again!
