Magnolia Rest description

Holiday home
Magnolia Rest is a modern ground floor apartment just outside the village of Preston near Weymouth. The cottage sleeps four people in two bedrooms which are a double with an en-suite shower room and a twin. There is also a bathroom, a kitchen with a breakfast bar and a sitting area and a conservatory with a dining area. Outside there is off road parking for two cars and a patio area with furniture and a wildlife garden with covered pond. Magnolia Rest really is a perfect Dorset holiday apartment to enjoy at any time of the year.

The small seaside town of Preston, with its Roman Villa and Saxon church, offers a selection of shops, fine pubs and restaurants, and is ideally located within one mile of the popular resort of Weymouth. With glorious golden beaches, excellent watersports facilities and a bustling harbour, Weymouth has something for everyone. Take a short drive to the rugged isle of Portland, linked to the mainland by Chesil Beach, part of the breathtaking World Heritage Coastline.

Magnolia Rest. Dirty,grubby, dirty carpet. Cobwebby. We stayed about 3 hours and went home. Not what Sykes cottages rated it in the literature.

This is the second time I've stayed at this property with my daughter and granddaughter.. It is perfect for all 3 of us. Everything we could need provided, including cakes on arrival! Comfortable beds and good layout, all on one level. Plenty to do without much travelling! Will be staying there again hopefully.

Owner emailed a couple of times with additional info re road closures and mobility shops which was helpful.. I was supporting my Dad on holiday who is a wheelchair user. The layout was good and we could move around fairly easily. The shower room wasnt suitable as it was simply too small for someone with mobility problems needing support and the other shower was 'an over the bath' - but with strip washes we coped. A good location close to shops and beach. Also a comprehensive visitors book which was handy.

Better quality mattresses needed as the beds were uncomfortable.. Otherwise we were very happy with the facilities and accommodation.

Very enjoyable, lovely cottage light not very good inside for reading ,main bedroom quite dark due to shutters at window would be overlooked with out them ,also blind on the conservatory restricted light better lighting from lamps would help..

We know Weymouth and surrounds quite well and always enjoy a stay - but the accommodation can always be an unknown.. However Magnolia Rest exceeded expectations - the 'apartment' (feels a dis-service to use that word) is excellently appointed and well fitted out. Right from the ease of parking to all the comfort and facilities/equipment provided. Would recommend to anyone for a stay in the area. Steve & Kim McReynolds - Blaby, Leicester

Magnolia Rest was a luxurious and very comfortable, well equipped apartment.. We had everything we needed. There was amazing weather and being located so close to the sea was glorious. We enjoyed our privacy and the excellent location with easy access to all the local attractions. The owners were very hospitable and welcoming. Staying at Magnolia Rest, felt like being at home while being on holiday.

We had a wonderful break in Weymouth at Magnolia Rest.. The cottage was very well equiped, spacious and only 10 minutes walk from the sea front. There was off road parking so no worries about parking. We have every intention of returning next year.

Lovely ground floor flat in quiet outskirts of Weymouth ideal for going on walks, excellent local transport all major super store deliveries if wanting to eat out fantastic resteraunts The Spicy Ship in Preston and The Ship Inn in Weymouth on the harbour where our particular favorites.. The tank meuseum and monkey world in wool are well worth a visit and of course Portland as well to see Chesil Beach.

As well as the excellent accommodation Chrissi and Roger went beyond what we could have expected when we were caught in the 1 in 10 years "snow event" and they offered (without being asked) the option to stay an extra 48 hours until the trains started running again.. We were extremely grateful to take them up on their offer otherwise we would have had to stay in an hotel which would not have been so comfortable or anywhere near as cheap! We cannot praise their care and concern too highly.

Lovely ground floor flat in great location - convenient for coast and Weymouth.. Good Parking. Spacious and well equipped. The Owners seemed to have thought of everything you need for a holiday.

The property is generally well fitted, however visiting in November we found the conservatory to cold to eat in which is where the dining table is.. We also found the lounge quite dark, it would be better with brighter lighting. It is also just off a busy main road so lots of traffic noise, but these are small negatives.

This was our second visit to Magnolia Rest as we were so impressed with our first visit The house is clean, comfortable and easy to find and everything we might need had been thought of.. Chrissi and Rodger the owners are very helpful, friendly and easy to talk to. We very much hope to be going back again in the future.All thanks to Chrissi, Rodger and Sykes for another great holiday.

Magnolia Rest was everything we wanted.. It was wonderfully equipped and the location could not have been better. When we arrived Chrissi had left us cakes as a welcome, which was wonderful. Would we recommend this property to other people, would we stay here again, without a doubt.

Really happy with our stay, Delighted that the photos are accurate. It is fresh and clean and there are so many extra touches. Things I had forgotten we would need. Magnolia Rest is easy to find and in a good area. Chrissi is a lovely lady. Easy to talk to and she was quick to reassure when I needed help. More than I expected.
