It was actually a school visit. I had a great time. The breakfast was good and the family friendly. The quality of the rooms were good too.

In response to the previous review - couple 18/3 we do not actually take provisional bookings, the couple in question did not bother to ring us to say if they were definitely coming and when I rang them to check as we had to go to a funeral they said they now only wanted 1 night instead of the original 3. We had no other bookings at that time - I would have thought they would be more understanding due to the fact we had a funeral to attend.

I really enjoyed Swanage and this guesthouse. It was quiet, the people were friendly and helpful, the bedroom and bathroom were very clean and comfortable. The fittings were all of a high standard. Other guests there had been several times before. I would definitely recommend it.

We have stayed here on numerous occasions and always been made to feel like one of the family. This is an ideally situated base for getting out and about from crabbing with the children on the pier to visiting the beautiful Jurassic coastline. Swanage also has some lovely restaurants and pubs if that is all you need one thing that you are absolutely assured of is a warm welcome from Mark and Hilary.
