“Wonderful weekend”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

A great place to stay. We booked two nights for my wifes birthday and our wedding anniversary. Great location for the Quay and trips to Boscombe/Bournmouth as there are bus stops outside the premises. On arrival we were made to feel very welcome . We had booked the for poster room. Spotlessly clean , a huge bathroom/shower room with spa bath And a nice touch was the Bottle of wine in the rooms Fridge. The bed was very comfortable and the facilities excellent.The Land lady (apologies if I have forgotten your name) was a great host and very helpful, she even remembered our anniversary the following morning . We had the early breakfast slot which was not a problem as we were up and out early. Breakfast is excellent and on a par with a good hotel..highly reccomended. Parking was good with a private car park at the rear. I have read previous reviews about the road outside being noisy. This was not a problem for us as we were in Poole to enjoy the Quay and its nightlife. View point is excellently situated to enjoy Poole and the surrounds and that is one of its selling points.I didnt drive for two days, we simply hopped on the bus outside. We shall certainly be staying here again. Thank you for a wonderful stay. Reccomended

Room Tip: Go for the four poster. It may be nearest the road but a great room and worth the money

Great value place to stay. Friendly effecient service. Clean and very comfortable rooms. Would definitely stay again when in the area. The only downside for us was the early breakfast slot 8 to 8.45, would have liked it a little later till 9.30 especially if they are busy and you have to wait for a table. But wouldnt stop us staying again.

We stayed at the Viewpoint Guest House for a night and found it very comfortable. The landlady was very helpful. The breakfast choice and quality was on a par with some 5 star hotels I've stayed in. Definitely recommend it.

We had a great stay here, room brilliant, four poster and bathroom big enough to park a car in.
Breakfast - everything you could wish for and more. Best scramble eggs and salmon ever. Location less exciting but friendly hosts - just a lovely time. Totally recommend it.

My daughter and I recently enjoyed a 2 night stay here. On our initial arrival we felt somewhat unwelcome as we had to wait in a hallway whilst our hostess completed an on-line auction purchase - this took longer than we felt was polite. Having booked a twin room, we actually found ourselves sharing a room which had a single bed and a four-poster so we democratically decided to swap beds each night! The room and en-suite were both clean and well presented, although the linens are probably due for an update - the towels were on the thin side and the bedding was bobbly. The inclusion of a small fridge - complete with complementary wine and chocs - was a nice touch. The room faced the main road which was a little noisy but in fairness the location on a busy road was clearly mentioned on the website. We were based in a separate house so had a very short trip to the main building (one house away!) for breakfast. We found a well stocked buffet - pastries, cereals, juices, fresh fruit, cheese and meats - which we grazed on whilst our hot choices were freshly prepared. My daughter had eggs on both days whilst I had items from the full English (not sure I could have managed the whole thing!) on the first day and scrambled eggs with smoked salmon the second. Everything was fresh and very tasty. The main pupose of our visit was to meet family members in the area so we didn't make use of the lounge facility or spend very much time in our room. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would happily stay again and/or recommend to others.

Many thanks for your comments following your recent stay with us. With regards to your comments about being kept waiting - I was indeed on line booking a birthday trip for my Husband and had been having problems with this all day and so just needed a few minutes to finish off, which was explained to you. Unfortunately even though my Husband was there he was unable to show you to the room as he cannot get up the stairs at the moment due to severe problems with his legs as a result of his diabetes. However we appreciate your favourable comments regarding all the facilities we have to offer and are glad that you enjoyed your trip with us.

Lovely friendly couple who made us feel welcome. Room was cleaned to a high standard, bathroom was spotless. Great location, great facilities, and an excellent breakfast menu, the full English kept us going until our evening meal. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is visiting the area. Oh and not forgetting the complimentary bottle of white wine and chocolates in the fridge :)

Many thanks for your kind comments following your recent stay with us. Glad you enjoyed the facilities of the room - hopefully the sun will be shining if you visit again and you can get the best out of the small patio area attached to the room! Glad you also enjoyed the complimentary wine offered.
