Very comfortable,clean, modern hotel. Welcoming hosts. Good food, freshly cooked and generous portion size. Good location not far from the beach. Added bonus of adults only. Would definitely stay again if in Swansea.

We found the online booking experience was very easy and received a follow up email closer to our visit date, which was a reassuring touch. The welcome from David and Dianne was very friendly and informative. We had a Superior Double room complete... More

David made us very welcome on arrival, our room was perfect for us. Liked the fact that the premises have car parking for all guest rooms. Breakfast was perfect, plenty of choice. My wife very much liked the eggs benidict. Very close to seafront, five minutes stroll. Try the Crows Nest, two minutes away, nice food and laid back atmosphere.... More

This is our second visit to The Swanage Haven and it won't be our last. David and Diane are fantastic hosts and Diane's home cooked breakfasts are magnificent. She even does home made bread and cakes/biscuits/muffins each day, along with a selection of sliced mixed fresh fruits. David has a wide knowledge of the area and can recommend many good... More

Excellent place to stay. Liked the fact that it was adults only. Breakfast was fabulous and thought the fresh fruit, homemade jams, cakes and bread were excellent and different to normal hotels. Room was lovely and big and liked the sofa in the room. The room was spotlessly clean and the bathroom had lovely fluffy towels and complimentary toiletries. Location... More

A lovely hotel. We stayed in the standard double. Very nice decor, with matching bedding. Our room overlooked the garden with an impressive koi pond. There was a robe and slippers each. The towels were white and fluffy. The en suite was fairly small but that wasn't a problem for us. The breakfast was top quality all locally sourced. The... More

We stayed at The Swanage Haven last summer and had such a lovely time that we had no hesitation in making a return visit this year - will it be three in a row in 2016?! Dianne and David are excellent hosts who provide very comfortable accommodation and the best full English breakfast imaginable!

Everything about Swanage Haven is excellent; from the warm and friendly welcome by Diane, to the delicious breakfasts (with so much choice) served by Dave. What's not to like? Immaculate, quiet and well appointed rooms, information about where to eat, what to do if you need it, nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be returning to re-charge the... More
