Deckchairs, colourful huts, fish and chips: there’s nothing quite like a seaside break in Britain. Combine all of this with Georgian architecture, long stretches of Blue Flag beaches and rugged Jurassic coast, and you get Weymouth in Dorset. We’ve rounded up the best hotels in Weymouth, all bookable on Culture Trip, because we do like to be beside the seaside – especially this one.

Moonfleet Manor

This charming Georgian manor, in the hills by Chesil Beach, has something for all the family. Let the kids entertain themselves with crazy golf or the indoor play area, while you relax in the spa and sip premium wine, hand-picked by the Moonfleet Manor sommelier. Kids or no kids, check out the cinema room, stroll around the hotel gardens and pay a visit to the indoor swimming pools. Afternoon tea, which comes with posh scotch eggs and swiss rolls, is also a must.

Travelling with a four-legged friend? Check into this accommodating hotel in Osmington Mills. It takes the hassle out of travel with free parking and breakfasts. If you’re interested in history, you’ll be fascinated with the origins of the Smugglers Inn, which dates to the 13th century, and supposedly acted as the headquarters of infamous French smuggler Pierre Latour in the 17th century. Expect roaring log fires, traditional rooms with wrought-iron bed frames and paintings of nearby coastlines, plus delicious Forum Lager-battered fish and Badger beer, brewed locally since 1777.

You won’t forget where you are at this Georgian townhouse, which is an ode to the seaside with a white and blue exterior. This contemporary boutique hotel is centrally located for easy exploring – but before heading out, sip complimentary sherry as you watch the sun sink over Weymouth Bay. Mornings should be spent tucking into hearty full English breakfasts, complete with locally sourced award-winning sausage or flavoursome vegan options.

    Kids stay free at the award-winning family-run Alexandra Hotel, which is ideally located on the Esplanade. Spend your days lounging on the beach – cooling off with vegan-friendly gelato from Boho Gelato – but not before enjoying freshly baked pastries in the mornings, as part of the continental breakfast. Feeling adventurous? Get around to historic sites such as Tudor House, in the old harbour side of Weymouth, on bicycles that can be rented from the hotel.

    Looking for an active break? Weymouth Beach and the South West Coast Path are a stone’s throw from this four-star, award-winning B&B. Back at the hotel, reward your rambling efforts with cheese platters and afternoon tea, featuring homemade scones with clotted cream and Dorset jam and champagne – if you fancy. It’s just 10 minutes from the town, which is home to numerous restaurants, known for local seafood.
