“Valentine's is a lovely place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2011

We stayed here April 2nd-April 3rd and had a room on the first floor with a 4 poster bed and a sea view.

Upon arrival we were met by the propieter, Sue, who took us up to our room. I was expecting the usual sea side small room but was really pleased to find a big and airy room. The bed was gorgeous and comfortable, high ceilings and massive bay window looking out onto the main road and front with an additional side window. Pleasantly decorated with nice furniture and usual kettle and tv. The ensuite was a proper en-suite and not a tiny thing you could hardly move in with a horrible sliding door, which you can sometimes find.

There is unrestricted parking right outside but not many spaces but this isn't a problem as behind the guest house there is lots on street parking and Sue and Graham can give you a parking permit to park unlimited during your stay.

The guest house is right at the start of the esplanade so it's a lovely walk along the beach and into the town and onto the harbour. There is a chinese restaurant called 'Sea View' right opposite Valentine's. It looks tatty and not worth bothering with but we went upstairs to take a peek and were pleasantly surprised. Lovely big restaurant overlooking Weymouth Bay so we ate there with the unlimited 'Eat all you can offer' and had a very nice meal.

Breakfast in the morning was delicious, full cooked Englsih with the choice of toasts, cereal, fruit and yoghurt as well. Very nice sunny dining room and very nice hosts to chat to.

Only draw back is the noise of the traffic outside. This isn't restricted to Valentine's, it's the same for all the guest houses along this main stretch, there is no double glazing in any of the buildings and it's a very busy road so do take some ear plugs if you are a light sleeper like me. Apart from that you'll love staying here and we are looking forward to returning- we got engaged during our stay!

we have just spent 4 nights at the valentine and have had a wonderful relaxing break. Sue and Graham are excellent hosts and do everything they can to make your stay as enjoyable as posible. The room was impecably clean and the bed linen and towels all white, hotel quality and spotless. The mattress, pillows and duvet all very good quality and we had 4 very comfortable nights sleep.
The view from the bay window in the room is amazing and the breakfast room is light and spacious and also has the same quality of linen, china and cutlery.
Everything is of a high quality and the food is cooked to perfection. We are vegetarian and every morning had vegetarian sausages,free range eggs and all the usual breakfast fare as well as fried bread to die for !
The little extra's in the room such as the mini fridge, wine glasses and cork screw make all the difference. We would definately recommend a stay at The Valentine. Well done Graham and Sue for giving such excellent service and beautiful accommodation.

My friend and I stayed six days at Valentines B&B in Weymouth. I would recommend that place to everyone. It is a very clean, welcoming place and it is next to the seafront. We enjoyed our breakfast very much. Sue (the owner) makes the best vegetarian English breakfast. We loved it. (You can have it with meat as well).

The centre of Weymouth and the Harbour are in less than 10 minutes walking distance reachable. We went for few great walks alongside the sea with breathtaking views. From the Harbour ferries leave daily to Jersey. As my friend and I have never been to Jersey before so we decided to visit Jersey as well. We took the 6:30am ferry and returned the same day at about 11pm to Weymouth.

We did have a great time. Thank you again Sue and Graham.

Seher and Cener :-)

Wanted a top spot for an unspoilt weekend away, and we got it!
I had chosen the room from looking at their website, and we were not disappointed...very light, fresh and airy, with oodles of space to relax in, and take in the view. Valentines is about a 10 min walk along the prom to the centre of Weymouth which is perfect as you are out of the hubbub, but the mosy along the seafront is beautiful..
Breakfast is served in a relaxed dining room - they offer yoghurt, cereals, juice, but their full fried breakfast does take alot of beating!!
Sue and Graham gave us a lovely welcome, and made sure everything was tiptop throughout our fun, yet relaxing weekend. I wish them all the best with their new venture - we'll definately be back!

Good sized room, beautifully decorated, en-suite with everything you could want including tea/coffee and biscuits, miniature toiletries and a shower cap in the bathroom together with a fan heater, useful for cold mornings. There is even a small fridge, wine glasses and a bottle opener in the bedroom. Bed was extremely comfortable, one of the best I've slept in.

Another highlight of the Valentine Guest House are the breakfasts, along with cereal, toast and fruit, Sue offers delicious cooked breakfasts with options including poached eggs on toast, baked beans on toast or full English, just the thing for a busy day's travel.

Overall, this was a fantastic find and I was sorry not to be able to stay longer. I would certainly recommend it to all on TripAdvisor.

My husband and I stayed here for a short weekend break. The guest house has been closed for a couple of years but reopened in March this year (I think), with Graham and Sue as the new landlord & landlady. Both were very friendly throughout our stay and the breakfast was very good too - never had to wait very long and served hot and fresh to order. The dining room is at the front of the guest house and is lovely and bright and airy. We stayed in one of the rooms with a four-poster bed, but to be honest, without any drapes around the bed, it didn't really have that 'wow factor'. The bed was comfortable though and we slept well. The bedding and the towels were very fresh and although the bathroom was adequate, it was quite narrow (and the mirror a little high for short people!). The shower was good and the standard of cleanliness throughout the room and the rest of the guest house was excellent. There was a mini fridge in the room, which some may find useful, we didn't bother with it though as we thought the sound of it humming throughout the night would be a bit irritating! The situation of the guest house is right at the opposite end of the Esplanade to the harbour, so this is about a 10-15 minute walk to the other end; because of this, the area around the guest house is fairly quiet in the evenings. All in all, we had a very enjoyable stay.

Valentines is a lovely guest house on the seafront. Our room had a dual aspect sea view at no extra cost. The room was very large & pretty with a four poster bed and all the usual amenities and had a small fridge which we found useful.

The breakfast was excellent, after a choice of cereals & some orange juice, the cooked breakfast was great, it wasn't too over the top (which I find can find a bit off putting) and was cooked to perfection. The dining room was lovely again with sea views and all matching crockery, a silver effect tea set & napkin rings. All little touches that make a big difference in my opinion.
Jackie & Gerry were lovely and really take pride in Valentines which showed. I would recommend this guest house to anyone and if I'm lukcy enough to visit Weymouth again will choose Valentines.
