  • "Southview retreat is in a residential area of Weymouth, about a fifteen minute walk the centre."

    The property is nicely decorated and is clean on the surface with comfortable beds. However, there are certain things that need improvement I.e. the cooker hob is very temperamental to put it nicely! I know this has been mentioned before in reviews. We mostly ate out so it wasn’t too much of a problem for us, but it does need attention. Based on location we probably wouldn’t return to this property.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We (the owners) have taken a look at the hob and have found it to be in perfect working order. All we can think is that perhaps the instructions in the folder weren’t found which is unfortunate, we will ensure that the instructions are kept in the kitchen in future. Kind regards Property Owner

  • "Absolutely lovely property could not fault the decor and quality of everything in this lovely house."

    Ideal location only 15 minute walk to Weymouth town centre. Lovely little seating area outside to enjoy a cuppa in the early morning sunshine. Some great places to visit within a short drive Bridport and West Bay amongst our favourites.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Southview and perhaps we can welcome again in the future. Kind regards David & Clare Property Owner

  • "The property was very good and clean and suited us for all our needs."

    Not too far to walk down to the beach and a supermarket only a short drive Away. The only issue was the hob, had difficulty getting it to work. A good holiday house for us and our grandchildren. Would recommend.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback and apologies for delay in responding. We (the owners) have taken a look at the hob and have found it to be in perfect working order. All we can think is that perhaps the instructions in the folder weren’t found which is unfortunate. We are so pleased you found everything else to your liking.

  • "We absolutely love Southview Retreat and have stayed there several times."

    We were disappointed to find that it was unavailable for our second holiday later in the year. We tried to change our holiday dates but weren’t able to, so we’ve had to book somewhere else. We’ll definitely be booking Southview retreat again next year though. It’s so clean and comfortable and the perfect spot to explore beautiful Weymouth from. Parking is easy and the town centre with its many attractions is just a five minute drive away, as is the beautiful seafront. Can’t wait to go back. Trish and co.

    So glad you enjoyed another stay at Southview Retreat. Thank you for your lovely review. Sorry that you haven’t been able to book in again later in the year but we hope to welcome you again soon. Property Owner

  • "We had an enjoyable holiday but found the house to be very dusty in places with a number of cobwebs also."

    House would benefit from a higher fence to the one side. We couldn’t let our dog out on his own because we feared he would get into the neighbours garden.

    We are sad to hear that you found the house to be dusty. We take great pride in the cleanliness and you will see from previous reviews that that is often something commented on. It will be looked into. Property Owner

  • "Southview Retreat is the best holiday home that we’ve ever stayed in, and we’ve stayed in a lot!"

    It’s immaculately clean, really, really comfortable, it’s ideally placed to visit so many attractions in beautiful Weymouth and the surrounding areas, parking is easy and it’s very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. In fact it’s such a wonderful place that we’ve just returned from our 4th stay (last Friday) and have already booked our next holiday there in the spring. Thoroughly recommended. FANTASTIC!!!!!

  • "The home was very clean and beautifully decorated throughout."

    The only problem I had was I found the bed a little uncomfortable and the duvet didnt fit its cover, this meant you were sleeping under the cover rather than the duvet. We had a few problems with the hob, a little reluctant to do as its told.

  • "A lovely house, it has all the facilities you need like a home from home with some nice personal touches."

    The garden and furniture were perfect for an evening drink and breakfast. It’s a 20 min walk to the main beach, Asda was a 5min drive,but with a great Londis shop around the corner for the extra bits was a bonus. Off road parking is tight for 2 mid sized cars, but some spaces at times on the front, the only thing to look out for is the gravel off road parking area is used as the local cat tray ! not much you can do about it, but worth a quick scan of the area before venturing out especially with children. On the whole a fabulous comfortable reasonably priced place to stay and would highly recommend it for families and couples.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to provide your positive feedback. We fully appreciate your comments re the parking area. We have lined up a builder to concrete the area in the Autumn once the season finishes. Property Owner

  • "This property is one we always re-book."

    It’s absolutely immaculate and so comfortable! It’s also very handy for all the local attractions, and it’s just a few minutes drive to the beach and the town centre. It has easy private parking at the back and it’s also easy to park at the front of the house. We stayed last week, ( our third visit ) and we have already booked again for later this year. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this property, it’s fab!

    Thank you so much for taking the time to provide such lovely feedback. We really appreciate it and are so happy that you enjoy your time at Southview Retreat, it is great that you have booked another visit to us and really hope that you like as much in December. Property Owner

    Excellent cleanliness, decor and levels of eqipment. Sunny rear garden with good patio furniture. Good parking. Found the seating at the rear of the lounge/diner rather cramped and too close to the chimney breast mounted television.

  • "We had a great time in Weymouth, even the weather was good."

    Southview Retreat was an ideal base for us, it was a bit of a hard walk into town for my 80 year old mam though due to the hills! The house was very much as described and everything we needed was there. The parking space at the back was particularly useful, as you couldn’t always get parked near the house in the street. We have a large car but it was fine once you got the knack of getting into and out of the space!

  • "The parking area at the rear of the house is gravel and unfortunately the local cats use it as a loo."

    Might be a good idea to make a solid base to park on. Everything else about the property was perfect.

  • "This house was immaculate."

    It was convenient to the beach and town centre and just round the corner from a huge Asda superstore. It was probably the cleanest house we’ve ever stayed in and was a perfect base for exploring Weymouth and the surrounding areas. We can thoroughly recommend Southview retreat and in fact already have done to several friends and relatives.

  • "We have a fantastic time on our holiday."

    The house was gorgeous, and so comfy with a great garden and parking is always a bonus. Like a home from home. Only 2 minor comments - sad there was no option to recycle (so we ended up taking ours home with us). And the curtains in the master bedroom were really thin - just a personal preference as I like a dark bedroom.

  • "What a beautiful house to stay in."

    So comfortable and garden great for the dog as safe and enclosed. Close to everywhere but a bit of a trek back from beach as slightly uphill! Furnishings comfortable. Main bedroom very large but could do with a king size bed rather than a double (personal choice). We had great weather all week Not done this sort of holiday before but looking at future breaks now especially if we can take the dog with us.

    The location made it easy to walk into town but far enough to offer piece and quiet when in the house. The house was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. We had a busy couple of days and would come back. Thank you!
