Stayed here with 4 of my 'girlfriends' for one night as we were going horseriding at Studland Stables the next day. Initial communication was excellent and they responded to my email enquiry very quickly. They even gave us a list of good places to eat in the local area. We received a very warm welcome from Wilma & Lawrie when... More

I have recently made a return visit to Little Gem and am very pleased to say it was as good as ever. There was a warm welcome and the room was very comfortable. The breakfast menu was comprehensive and the quality of the food was very tasty. Little Gem's situation is ideal for the town and its sandy beach. I... More

I have recently had three stays at the Little Gem for a total of eight nights. What a lovely place and delightful owners. Highly recommend everything about Little Gem. Also Swanage has proven to be a great place with amazing scenery.

I stayed there for 3 nights and found it a home from home. Great owners and a lovely welcome. Beautifully furnished to a very high standard. Great breakfast and comfy beds. Very quiet at night. Highly recommend this place. Will be back.

We are a group of retired friends who share holidays as part of birthday celebrations. Little Gem was both welcoming and comfortable, with an enjoyable breakfast and comfortable bedroom areas. As we more or less filled the accommodation we were able to use the breakfast room as a guest room to enjoy evenings together. The car parking provision was greatly... More

My wife and I wanted to stay in Swanage on our anniversary. It was a busy weekend in Swanage, with the steam railway gala, the paddle steamer 'Waverley' doing a trip along the Jurassic Coast down to Lulworth Cove and a folk weekend going on as well! We were not confident of getting accommodation easily. However, we were lucky and... More

Another, all too short, visit to the Little Gem. We stayed 2 nights and appreciated replaced windows and other improvements. The friendly hosts cannot be improved and the breakfast provided all we needed for exploring the town and coast. Looking forward to the next visit.

We wanted a holiday away for 8 friends and one 2 yr old, this was a great find, all 4 rooms were perfect and roomy, tea and coffee facilities (with biscuits!), bathrooms large and clean. The breakfasts were great, and if we had any requests they were dealt with quickly and easily, like soy milk for a lactose intolerant person.... More

This is a lovely warm clean guesthouse. Rooms all have a well finished off ensuite. Good friendly welcome and service. Tasty organic cooked breakfast and they catered for my gluten free needs without fuss. Only a short walk into town, near the steam railway and lots of choice for eating in the evening. Highly recommend for a stay in Swanage... More

Booked for one night (hard to find a place offering this) and delighted with everything! Clean, modern furnishings in a character property with excellent facilities and friendly owners. A pleasant walk away from Swanage centre. Will definitely stay again. Perfect!
