Travel with your dog can have a few challenges. Made us all feel welcome. Cozy room, great breakfast hamper. Well easily recommend. Planning our next visit to stay again. Nice size room, central location.

We spent a weekend here in October and were greeted with a big smile from Samantha. The room was nicely made up, cosy and with en-suite. The breakfast is a good idea and being a continental with a twist which is brought up to the room and was a bonus as we had our dog with us. My only suggestion... More

Stayed here for a few days in August. Was difficult to find a nice, dog-friendly hotel but we're so pleased we happened upon the Railway Cottage. Friendly staff, peaceful night's sleep and lovely continental breakfast different each day. The room was spotlessly clean, well presented and had a lovely en-suite. Free wi-fi, too! Always a bonus. Will definitely be returning... More

Stayed here for three nights and enjoyed delicious continental breakfasts delivered to our room. The accommodation was clean and tidy and the location was ideal for beach or town. Would definitely recommend

I spent hours the previous day looking online and wandered all round Swanage when we arrived on Saturday morning but was confronted with 'No Vacancies' signs everywhere! I spotted a 'Vacancies' sign at Railway Cottage (hanging from a charming... More

Good location only 5 mins walk in to the town. Room was fine but the shower was quite small and we couldn't adjust the water spray & could get a full spray. The tea pot had someone else's old tea and teabag in it. Despite requesting breakfast for 8.15am ( which they said they did) we had to leave a... More
