Look no further than The Castleton. A stylish, welcoming, and lovely B&B in a fantastic location just a short walk to the town and its sandy beaches. The standard is exceptionally high, extremely clean, modern and above all, very friendly. The bathroom was new with complimentary toiletries and bath towels that were very white and fluffy. The breakfast was cooked... More

Swanage was on great form - blue skies, great walks to Studland and Corfe - really impressed my American friend with a ferry from Sandbanks - and a steam train from Corfe! But the highlight was the great hospitality and breakfast at the Castleton. Becky is the most wonderful host and becoming a real friend - I'll be back very... More

A large B&B at the northern end of the bay, furthest from the town centre but close to the beach. Very cheerful, helpful and friendly welcome, with good, bright, very clean and well decorated rooms. The off-road parking is a bit tight but we managed. Quite expensive (£105 for a good-sized ensuite double room inc full breakfast) but we thought... More

We all had a wonderful time at The Castleton. Many thanks to Rebecca, Melvin and staff for making our stay in Swanage so enjoyable. The breakfasts were delicious and our room was very welcoming after our long walks in the local area. Located only a short distance on foot from the town's sandy beach. You even arranged warm sunny weather... More

I know Swanage very well and have visited many times over many years. This was the second time I'd stayed at The Castleton and it was just as good as before. Very comfortable rooms (and beds!), spotless bathrooms, quiet and cosy, gorgeous lounge and of course fantastic breakfasts. I stayed with my daughter (who is 9) and she loved it.... More

We had a lovely time and were well looked after. The staff were friendly and took the time to make sure I always had everything I needed. Great balance between being attentive but not in your face. I would most definitely go back.

We highly recommend this B&B. The owners are addictively adorable with extremely bubbly personalities and could not do enough for us. We will definitely return again. My husband was the best man at a local wedding and nothing was too much trouble for them. They were on hand to help with anything
