Why We Love It
- Maritime Hotel has panoramic views of the Jurassic Coast and is set in a former centre for the testing of naval defence weapons
- Chesil Beach is around 10 minutes' drive from the hotel and Weymouth is 20 minutes' drive away
- It is a good base from which to walk the South West Coast Path or visit the famous Portland Bill lighthouse
Map & Directions
Rooms & Rates
Maritime Hotel is a clifftop hotel on the Isle of Portland, 20 minutes' drive from Weymouth. Lonely Planet recommends the island's "rich bird life", "starkly beautiful cliffs" and "jaw-dropping views".
You can explore Portland Bill lighthouse for great views of the English Channel or join the South West Coast Path from the hotel and walk to Chesil Beach, for a chance to see rugged clifftops and caves. Chesil Beach, an 18-mile stretch of shingle beach that connects Portland to the maindland, is around and hour's walk along the path, or 10 minutes by car.
The seaside town of Weymouth and its attractions -- including Jurassic Skyline, am observation tower that offers views up to 16 miles away from 174 feet above the ground -- are around 30 minutes' drive away. The town is hosting several events throughout the summer, including Gin Festival Weymouth (3 Jun), Wessex Folk Festival (3-5 Jun), The Pommery Dorset Seafood Festival (8-9 Jul). Durdle Door, a picturesque limestone arch on the Purbeck Heritage Coast, is less than an hour's drive from the hotel.
The Royal Navy were present on Portland until the 1990s, and the hotel is a former Admiralty Under Weapon Establishment -- a naval building where defence weapons were developed and tested. It has since been transformed into a modern hotel enjoying panoramic views of the 95-mile-long Jurassic Coast. The hotel has a restaurant with floor-to-ceilings windows, a bar and an outside terrace.
