Had a lovely weekend break in Swanage, Clare House made the weekend really great. Diane and Alan are wonderful hosts very friendly and very professional. The house is immaculate with a lovely atmostphere, our room was absolutely lovely. The breakfasts really are in my opinion the best in swanage with lots of choices. We will definitely be visiting again.

A wonderfully appointed B&B with attention to detail. Superb breakfast and cooked to your liking. Clare House is very well situated for Jurassic Coast walking or beach holidaying. This is our second visit and we were made so welcome.

Wonderful small, very comfortable, six bedroom hotel. The husband and wife team made us very welcome and the breakfast was comprehensive and marvellous. We will definitely use this establishment again.

We stayed here last summer and are going again this year. Wonderful breakfasts, well decorated rooms and very attentive staff. The rooms are very comfortable and there has been great attention to detail throughout the whole hotel.

We stayed for 2 nights this month. Excellent all round experience, breakfast was amazing, with a really good choice of food. The room was well equipped and really comfortable.

Very welcoming hosts who went out of their way to accommodate our toddler. The breakfast is delicious with a wide range of food. The beds very comfy. Best B&B we have ever stayed in, highly recommended.
