The Castleton was recommended by the Swanage Tourist Information and after a quick phone call walked a short distance to the hotel.First impressions were very favourable,a large three story house extended on both sides with well attended gardens and parking for four cars to the front and side.
Julian greeted us and showed us our room a "superior double with ensuite" complete with Sky TV, a sitting area and a sea view. A beautifully furnished and decorated lounge was also available for guests on the ground floor and we were told "please use it as your own".The breakfast/dining room was adjacent to the lounge and had been extended with a conservatory which gave a light and airy feeling to the room.
Julian was very charming and recommended the pub opposite called "The Crows Nest" for an evening meal as well as watching the Wales/England game.A very pleasant local pub complete with log fire and real ale lived up to our expectations.
After a very comfortable night both Celia and I enjoyed a fantastic Dorset breakfast in the conservatory which really set us up for the remainder of the day.
I have no hesitation in recommending The Castleton, an excellent hotel with excellent hosts and somewhere we would stay again.
