We stayed here for the weekend after being kept down by Millbrook B&B who had double booked our room reserved in April. Everything was clean and comfortable . The breakfast was excellent you could have anything you requested. Being the first b&b in Kings Road it is in an excellent area for the steam railway ,shops and beach. Thank you... More

My partner and I have stayed in this guest house a couple of times now; it's a great crash pad for the town, and is directly opposite Swanage Railway Station (where you can ride the steam train to Corfe). It's a minutes' walk into town, and you can be on the beach in 5 minutes. The pier is accessible in... More

We stayed here for a long weekend during the Folk Festival. Firswood is well positioned for all the main attractions. Our room was clean and tidy and very good value for money. Doesn't take cards but there's an ATM 50m away so that is little hardship. Friendly owners who were happy to chat. There were plenty of tourist leaflets about... More

Stayed here for a week and really enjoyed our stay. Everywhere was clean and tidy and breakfast was good. Would have prefered cereals to have been decantered into "tupperware" boxes rather than left in original boxes. Owner seemed a little reserved at first but as week progressed got a lot more chatty. I had room 3 which was very big... More

Well, we turned up in Swanage on impulse on the bank holiday weekend and took our chances. We saw a board which said 'vacancies' outside Firswood and promptly knocked on the door. We were met by the proprietor who told us that she did indeed have the accommodation we required but that she didn't take debit or credit cards..... We... More

We stayed here for 3 nights recently and had a lovely time. The guest house is in a good location, cited near the steam train and the local shops. The owners were very friendly and informative about the area. Lots of leaflets to plan your stay. Consideration has gone into making this an efficient and welcoming stay. We stayed in... More

I stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of August, the B&B is in a fantastic location - just across the road from the station. The room had a very 'cosy cottage' feel to it and was of a good size. The bathroom is more than a little on the small side and had a sliding door that didn't... More

I have just returned from a lovely 10 day holiday at Firswood Guest House in Swanage where the welcome is as warm as the climate there. This really is a lovely well run family guest house. Which offers a lovely breakfast and comfortable room with all the comforts of home. The location is perfect for the beach, shops and the... More
