The Hotel Aqua is only a short walk from the Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy (WPNSA), making us the ideal location for developing sailors and their parents, guardians and fans.

We are also only a short walk from the Official Windsurfing and Stand-up Paddle Board Test Centre.

We are equipped with a kit-wash and drying room, and we will always try to find space for any equipment you need storing during your stay (although we do advise calling ahead to let us know.)

If you have a day on the water planned we can prepare packed lunches to get you through the day.  And of course, the Wreck Bar is open each evening where you can enjoy a meal and get your strength back.

The Aqua proudly accommodated and was the base to Club France and The French Sailing Federation, during the Olympic Games, and for all their preparations.

Other National Sailing Federations, frequently book their crew and support members into The Aqua, owing to its facilities and close proximity to the Marina.

“The Aqua’s clean, comfortable and affordable rooms and close proximity make it a great accommodation option when the Artemis Offshore Academy squad train at WPNSA”

“We had the most fantastic stay at the Aqua Hotel, I booked 23 of us in from the Exe and our every whim was catered for, from drying our kit to providing us with a hearty breakfast and serving the finest whiskey. All we had to do was get on and enjoy the sailing because we knew the Aqua had got it covered”

Debbie Woodcock, Trio Captain, Exe Sailing Club

The Aqua, situated on Castletown Pier, with most rooms providing magnificent views over the Marina and Harbour, provides the perfect location to enjoy the atmosphere of the Sailing.

The in house Castletown Suite and Wreck Bar, provides great food and drink, relaxing in the company of fellow sailing enthusiasts.
