Lovely place to stay. We had a very friendly welcome. Heather was extremely helpful giving directions and bus information which made our trip out hassle free. Room was excellent, breakfast was superb best I have had in a guest house. Overall it was the little touches that made the difference would highly recommend and would certainly stay again.

Thoroughly enjoyed our valentines stay. Our hosts were friendly, helpful and welcoming. There was milk, bottled water and little chocolate coins in the fridge (lovely touch) and the bathroom is just to die for (even had a slice of lush soap) these guys thought of everything. Thank you! X

I've never written a review before but the Viewpoint was that nice I felt the need to share my experience. The room was very clean, well furnished and very comfortable. Lovely touch having fresh milk in the room. The Bath was gorgeous. Heather and her husband (Sorry I didn't catch his name) we very welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was stunning too. I'll be back very soon.

We stayed for a Friday and Saturday night and found Viewpoint and its owners very hospitable and welcoming from the start.

We had booked one of the four poster rooms, which was very comfortable. It was spacious and felt like it had been recently refurbished with good facilities - large flat screen tv, nice leather seats. The bathroom with a large walk-in shower was also very nicely finished and had lots of room as well as being spotlessly clean.

The owners, Steve and Heather couldn't have been more helpful with recommendations of restaurants and help to navigate around Poole.

The breakfast deserves a special mention as it was very nicely prepared to order and with more than the full cooked English on offer (thought it was so good we stuck with it) with a good selection of cereal, fruit, yogurt etc as well as toast and preserves.

Many thanks for your kind comments following your recent stay with us for a belated Valentine's weekend break with your boyfriend. We are glad you enjoyed the four poster and jacuzzi bath! When booking again please ask me for softer pillows as we always have spares to offer guests. Also we have four poster rooms at the back of the property where there is less traffic noise, but the only bath is in the front four poster, so the decision is yours - jacuzzi bath/traffic noise or shower and less traffic noise!

I always stay at the viewpoint whenever I come to poole. Steve and heather are really lovely and make you feel so welcome and comfortable in their home. The rooms are done to such a high standard and the beds are so comfortable resulting in a good nights sleep. And the little personal touches like wine in your room is a really lovely touch and very thoughtful. The breakfast is always cook fresh and perfectly and theres a lovely selection too. I won't stay anywhere else and would recommend the viewpoint to anyone. Thanks steve and heather, I shall see you both when I return soon x
