very good B&B - the hosts really cared about ensuring we had a great stay room were very good - we found plenty of parking out front on street or rear of building 10 minute walk down into Swanage Breakfast was good literally the only small complaint would be the Wi-Fi didn't reach the top floor #firstworldproblems

We were down for a short stay for diving over the bank holiday , the stay was a pleasure clean and quite . The location is ideal as is only few minutes walk to the sea front and back to your room again . Thank you for your hospitality see you soon.

Beautiful B&B, tidy, clean, lovely decor, nice en suite with great use of space. Very friendly and polite owners. Superb location with a 5 minute walk to the town and water and a short drive to neighbouring villages. Highly recommend

Stayed for one night - lovely property, great welcome from the owners. Convenient location, close to station and shops. The room was small (single) but had everything you need and more. Great shower and comfortable bed. Will certainly stay again. Thanks!

A comfortable B&B near the centre of Swanage - handy for railway/bus stations with street parking available close by. The friendly owners maintain a high standard of cleanliness etc and cook a good breakfast to order - what's not to like ?

The room was very clean and comfortable and we really enjoyed our stay. Kevin and Lyn were very friendly and welcoming and have gone the extra mile to make sure that their guests are happy. We'd certainly come back again without hesitation.
