“Excellent stay.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

Two couples stayed, one my daughter and her partner from Hobart and my hubby & I. In all it was a great place and value for money with a cooked breakfast included...To top of the breakfast, Margaret had some glutenfree bread for which I was very grateful for...
Having resided in Albany ourselves between 81 and 95 we did not need any directions of what to visit or where to go, we spent two nights at the lodge and should the need arise would defintly stay again....Thankyou Margaret & Lew.
Sue Jackson.

Many thanks Sue & Maurie for your very kind words - it is very much appreciated.
We hope Tamarra & Noel had a safe trip back to Hobart. In the meantime it has been extremely busy here with the Art Trail & Wildflower season. We hope to see you again.

Margaret and Lew extremely friendly, good clean, comfortable and quiet accommodation. Excellent breakfast and a lovely chat in the morning. Very helpful where to go and what to do. We travelled down to Albany by coach, Margaret and Lew picked us up from the visitors centre when we arrived and dropped us off at the end of our stay. Will stay there next time we are in Albany.

Margaret and Lew have the unique gift of hospitality which I have come to enjoy over my many stays at their lovely place. They are a warm and welcoming couple, whose genuine interest in all their guests is proven on a daily basis by their conversations and offers to help out wherever they can. Being so close to town means that getting around is just a short stroll, and the rooms are absolutely meticulous. View Street Lodge has become my home away form home!

We enjoyed our visit to Albany View Lew and Margaret went out of their way to welcome us. Margaret was full of helpful advice about where to go and what to see, whilst Lew fired up the gas barbie so we could eat al fresco, not something we've ever done in the UK in November!
We had a very nice room with all the facilities we needed.
We had a lovely three night stay and thought the Albany area to be delightful. We were sad to leave and make our way back to Perth.

They were an absolutely delightful couple and a pleasure to have-they certainly enjoyed the 3 nights they spent with us and bought some paintings as a momento. Nice to hear that they enjoyed their stay - we hope they will visit us again.

My friend and I were very satisfied with our experience at this B & B. The hosts were very hospitable, helpful and obliging. They even went to Emu Point to retrieve a lost cap for me and then mailed it to me at their own expense! I was extremely impressed with that-that's what I would call 'going the extra mile'.Those little personal touches are what you remember about a place.

Also the room was spacious and comfortable. The covered patio area was an enjoyable if unexpected feature and gave the feeling of extra 'roominess'

The lovely breakfast overlooking the harbour was also a most enjoyable experience.

These two ladies were an absolute joy to have. The hat was obviously an old favourite - no trouble at all to go and pick it up. We hope they come back.

I see a few people found the owners unwelcoming. They were the rudest people I have ever met. It was an unpleasant experience from when we rang to say we were arriving at 7pm and were told that it didn't suit as that was when they had dinner. We rang them again to say we'd come at 9pm so as not to disturb their dinner.
The next day we saw on another website that they didn't take arrivals after 6pm. We had booked on wotif and paid $395 upfront (unrefundable) totally ignorant of their no after 6pm arrival rule in the fine print.
Why didn't they tell us when we rang from Perth at 3:30pm that they don't take after 6pm arrivals?
If they didn't want to be disturbed after 6pm why didn't they say 'We don't wish to be disturbed after 6pm. Thank-you for your upfront payment. We have left the key x, your room can be found x, please be quiet when you enter and we'll see you tomorrow-enjoy your stay.'
They also left a nasty phone message 15 minutes after our due arrival time because we were late. We were sorry we didn't answer. The only time we left our phone was after driving around the suburb for 15 minutes trying to find the location when we went back to the map outside the tourist information centre to check again where to go.
Thankfully we found lovely accommodation elsewhere.

As mentioned in the press recently accommodation operators do not have a leg to stand on when reviews such as this are printed it is very detrimental to your business and there are always 2 sides to any story. These people obviously had some domestic problems as she was out of control when she arrived at 9.45pm. She refused to get out of the car and jumped into the driving seat to try and take off. Her husband was very apologetic and tried to calm her down but to no avail. It was a most unpleasant experience and she did ring and apologise for her behaviour about half hour later. We have over 600 guests per year - 99% are very nice and considerate. Our policies on all travel sites do state that arrivals after 6.30pm must be arranged with owner and the latest time for arrival is 8pm. Wotif were advised of these problem guests next morning. We have a 48Hr. cancellation policy and I agreed to allow Wotif to refund them 1 night's accommodation. Incidently we do not get paid until December.
I would point out that they could not possibly show a review for our rooms as they did not enter the premises. I would not have these people back.

Absolutely loved this B&B, it was exactly what a B&B should be like - friendly, personal and welcoming. Probably the best place we stayed in during a 2 weeks trip across the country.
First the rooms - we stayed in Suite 2 which is underneath the breakfast area. The room was warm, well furnished, clean and comfortable. It had everything we needed and we could have happily stayed here much longer.
The location - 2 minute drive or 10 minute walk into the central area of town - Had a wonderful dinner at Nonna's on York Street, we had found the menu in the guest compendium at the B&B and we were delighted to find out later on that it was a favourite restaurant of my in laws over 20 years ealier!
The hosts - Absolutely loved Margaret and Lew. They took the time to chat and get to know us a bit whilst they were checking us in, and told us all about themselves too. This makes a big difference when staying somewhere like this and we were delighted to be made to feel so welcome. In regards to the noise, yes there is some, as the hosts are making YOUR breakfast which is kindly included in the price of the room (And a marvellous breakfast it is too by the way) It didn't bother us at all as we were already up and about ... who wants to sleep in on holiday anyway? Get out there and enjoy I reckon!
Highly recommend this place for the personal touches and the warm welcome.
