Cheap can be chic in the Dorset seaside town of Weymouth. Here are our favourite little boltholes for holidaymakers on a budget, bookable on Culture Trip.

One of Dorset’s best-known – and best-loved – seaside towns, Weymouth is the business for a beachy break. With proximity to the absurdly photogenic Jurassic Coast, it’s a welcoming place, where domestic Georgian architecture rubs shoulders with golden sands, yachts with pleasure boats and caravans with characterful pubs, hotels, guest houses and B&Bs. If you want to know the best cheap places to stay in Weymouth, read on.

The Cumberland

Guesthouse

You’re so close to the beach when you stay at this characterful guest house, you could throw your towel through the window and reserve a sandy spot each morning. There are 12 light and airy rooms brightened with pops of blue, orange and green – be sure to request one with views of those pale, golden sands stretching for miles. This is a great family-holiday choice, with generously sized rooms for larger parties. Tuck into bacon and eggs in the whitewashed breakfast room before hitting the beach with your buckets and spades.

A super-convenient 50m (165ft) from the beach, this friendly grade II-listed Victorian townhouse is also handy for the Old Harbour and town centre. It’s run by a local couple, Karen and Martin, hence the care and attention given to the excellent full English breakfasts featuring local produce. The five cosy rooms, in 50 shades of rich brown, nod to the coastal setting with driftwood on the walls. Ask if you need a triple. Four have en-suite showers, one an external bathroom. Be sure to pay homage to the landmark limestone arch of Durdle Door on a day trip.

Marina Court Hotel

4.8/5 (56 Reviews)

Jaunty polka-dot walls and beige colour schemes give suave character to these seven rooms. There are family-compatible spaces (one room has a bunk), a two-bedroom caravan and sea-view doubles – ask for number 14, with its own balcony, for breezy morning coffees. Choose either room-only or (our advice) B&B: you’ll be good to go after filling up on locally sourced bacon and eggs or freshly baked croissants, pains au chocolat and fruit. The hotel is right on the Esplanade, so you’re close to everything that makes Weymouth great: beach, shops, cafes and restaurants.

    Bed and Breakfast
    4.5/5 (67 Reviews)

    It’s adults only at this boutique-chic B&B on a serene residential street, with its quiet garden full of plants, herbs and birdsong. Five minutes’ walk from Weymouth Bay, it’s a place to sleep soundly: the seven rooms (singles and doubles) are relaxing and fresh-feeling, with pale walls, ceiling fans and pine furniture in warm tones. Rise for a freshly cooked full English in the sun-splashed breakfast room before heading out for a day exploring the town’s coastal charms.

    The Cavendale

    Hotel
    4.1/5 (215 Reviews)

    Spread over three floors, rooms at this family-run redbrick townhouse all have photo-worthy views of Weymouth harbour or the beach – pick room four for a fine outlook over multi-coloured Georgian houses huddled by the waterfront. Ask Richard and Sam, the friendly, helpful hosts, for pointers on where to head once you’ve had breakfast. Our top tip: both Weymouth Museum and the Weymouth to Portland Railway walk are close by and well worth getting stuck into.

    Anyone who’s partial to scampi in a basket and a pint in a lively beer garden will be content at this traditional red-tile-roofed pub in the former fishing village of Chickerell, just outside Weymouth. With hints of light blue, rooms (some wheelchair-accessible) are soothing; three of the 14 have relaxing spa baths. Downstairs, the cosy flagstone-floored pub exudes an upbeat party spirit, against a backdrop of ugged walls, well-scrubbed wooden tables and low ceilings. If that sounds like your scene, earmark a Friday, when there are live acoustic sessions.

    Overlooking Weymouth’s picturesque 17th-century harbour and bay, the family-run Anchorage gets full marks for views. Guests love it for its proximity to the beach – a few sandy footsteps away. Room decor is simple but appealing – here a floral pattern, there a wicker chair in which to curl up with your holiday novel. Kids are in clover – the Weymouth Sea Life Adventure Park is conveniently close by. Best of all, the light-filled breakfast room overlooks the seafront so you can debate which sandy spot to descend upon one you’ve devoured your delicious full English – vegetarians fully catered for.
