The Castleton is spotlessly clean and close to the sea front, along which it's a 15 minute of so walk into town. There is some parking on site although, dependent upon the number of guests staying, vehicles need to be parked in side streets. My parents and I stayed in Room 5 (Family Room) which has a double bed, a... More

Very well situated b&b close to sandy safe beach and town. Stayed in room 5, en suite with curtained off single room adjoining, worked well, pleasant and nicely decorated with lots of small touches. Helpful and friendly staff and owners. Would recommend, and would stay again.

Conveniently placed for access to the beach, shops and an excellent restaurant. The hotel itself is clean, and well looked after. We have booked already for further visits. We would recommend this hotel as an excellent family hotel well suited to young children. with outstanding surrounding countryside.

Very enjoyable 3 nights in this super Guest House B&B. Very friendly atmosphere and excellent amenities. Very convenient for the beach and short walk to town. Highly recommended. Good base for touring the Jurassic Coast.

Great location and very friendly and helpful owners and staff. Excellent, well stocked breakfast buffet and the cooked breakfast was equally well done. They were working flat out the weekend we stayed as the hotel was full but there was no sign of stress. Our room was clean and nicely presented, my only (very small) issue was that there was... More

Excellent location. Only 5 minutes from beach and approx. 15 minutes to main shopping area. The hotel was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Staff were always on hand and very friendly. Lovely breakfast - everything you could possibly want. Swanage is a really lovely town and great for walks and sightseeing. Great choice of pubs and restaurants. Really enjoyed our... More

Ideal location just a couple of minutes stroll down to the sea. The owners Melvin & Rebecca were really friendly and helpful. The bedroom & en-suite were clean & tastefully decorated, as were the dining room and lounge which was a really comfortable room to relax in at the end of the day. The breakfasts, cooked by Melvin, were of... More

Castleton is a lovely b&b, located near one end is swanage beach and adjacent to the cliff paths leading to Old Harry, Studland and Corfe. And a wander through swanage quickly takes you onto the westward coast path. Our room was spacious, well equipped, and quiet despite being opposite a pub (or the walking meant we slept through anything). The... More
