Won't come back! There was free parking but there was not enough space for all the guest's cars, so we could not park our car in the carpark and we had to park it in the street which was far away from the guesthouse. The cold water basin tap was not working well. we were not told how to switch the shower on so we could not have a shower in the evening. we tried to get help but we did not get any. then in the morning we were told we had to switch on the fuse for the shower which was outside the bathroom and underneath a desk. We were put in a loft room and this was not comfortable as we kept hitting our heads on the ceiling because of the way the room was shaped. We could not control the shower's temperature. It was either too hot or cold. There was a terrible food smell. Heather made her dinner and we could smell it everywhere. IT WAS TERRRIBLE! The breakfast was good. The decoration in the dining room was good. the service was ok.

Room Tip: Don't stay in the loft room as you can hit your head!

We last visited the Viewpoint Guesthouse in Poole, Dorset, earlier last year. At the time they were undergoing a major refurbishment but the stay was still excellent. The refurb work is now complete and we stayed there last weekend. The building has been refurbished and decorated to an exceptional standard. It is spotlessly clean and furnished well. There are lovely finishing touches everywhere you look. Everything is colour coordinated with high-end furnishings. The breakfast was freshly cooked and was absolutely fantastic. The hosts are very nice people and nothing is too much trouble. We travel to Poole regularly to visit family and have used many different establishments over the years. However, we have found this gem and will not be using any other B and B in the future. Viewpoint simply cannot be beaten.

Lovely self contained family suite with seperate bedrooms for adults and kids with on-suite wc/shower/bathroom. Heather also provides a great variation at breakfast with lots of fresh fruit and berries aswell as usual english favourites. Would stay again.

Having booked hotel for my return trip from Guernsey, I found that I had been sent via Poole instead of Portsmouth. Our return was late but both the owners awaited our late return (11.45pm). This little gem was out of this world, superb bed and linen, all matching, the breakfast, was cooked to suit the size of the person and the distance they had to travel. My breakfast was double because not only of my size but the distance back to Peterborough. We have stayed in many many places but everything crockery wise matched down to the serviet rings. To start the breakfast there was a vast array of items,BUT and you do not find this in some of the best hotels, a choice of fresh strawberries,blueberries etc. They hold many rosettes given by the tourist board. So if you are travelling around Dorset etc or coming in on the ferries. You must try this one, I promise you will not be dissappointed.
