A two-night stay at the FANTASTIC Swanage Haven. An oasis of calm and relaxation. Just what we needed! The room was very well appointed. Little touches like the bespoke sea horse chocolates and the robes and slippers hit the spot. Even without taking up the offer of the spa services, we felt proper pampered. The breakfasts deserve a paragraph of... More

During our stay we enjoyed; a fantastic breakfast where I am a fussy bunny but David and Diane accommodated my needs very well, without a fuss but with a smile. Fell asleep thanks to an amazing relaxation massage then enjoyed a dinner to which I perceive as restaurant standard! Great tasting and presented beautifully. The room we stayed in was... More

Thanks for your review it is always much appreciated, the circle window in your bathroom you mentioned is original to this Edwardian house, and has opaque glass in, the foot wide circle.... So a little confused by your comment ..surely closing the window if privacy seemed to be an issue would have cured the issue ... But we take inboard... More

Great food, Great drink, Great rooms, Great hot tub, Great location, Great owners......the list is endless. The Swanage Haven has it all. When reading reviews, I am always sceptical on who is writing them, as there are never any negatives. This place honestly has no negatives whatsoever! We started on a Friday afternoon where we greeted with a warm welcome... More

This was our 4th visit to The Haven, and once again David & Dianne were the perfect hosts. Room as always immaculately clean, and well presented and lacked nothing, nice and toasty too. As usual food was to a very high standard and extremely tasty. This trip we took our friends who thoroughly enjoyed the surroundings and the warm welcome... More

We stayed here just one night whilst visiting family in the town. The room, although tiny, was very comfortable and had all the ameneties that you would require. The whole place was so very clean - absolutely immaculate everwhere - without exception! You could not ask for a better, more well maintained accommodation. The breakfast was exceptional too, served quickly... More

This was our second visit to the Haven. It was just as good as we remembered. Conveniently situated close to beach and countryside walks while only a few minutes to the town centre.

We stayed here for the Swanage Blues Festival in March. The B&B is in an ideal spot; about 10 minutes walk from the sea front so within easy reach of everything without being right on top of it. The room was very nice; beautifully decorated and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and set us up for the day; the bread for... More

Stayed here in late Feb for a weekend away and I can honestly say, it was one of the nicest places I've ever stayed. David and Dianne were fantastic hosts, we were made to feel really welcome from the minute we stepped in until we left. An unexpected but very lovely birthday related surprise at breakfast just helped to make... More
