Outstanding in all areas. Spotlessly clean, very welcoming, excellent breakfast. The best B&B and would highly recommend to anyone. Fresh produce used and you can tell the difference. Quiet location but within walking distance of the town.

Myself and my partner stayed here for 3 night as it was carnival week. Just like last year we were giving a warm welcome by Diane. We were in room 5 and it was lovely. Couldn't fault it. Loved the fact that the shower gel/shampoo, conditioner and soap were in dispensers on the wall, it made it so much easier... More

What a lovely stay we have had at this B&B! We came here for a four night stay and loved pretty much every minute. I've stayed in many a B&B and feel that sometimes you feel as if you are encroaching into someones house, that was not the case here they made us feel very welcome but still gave us... More

We stayed recently for a three night break at The Swanage Haven. The stay was enjoyable and the added bonus was our stay was on the hottest days of the year. Swanage Haven is located on a quiet road about a 10 minute walk along the front into the town. Our room was located at the rear of the building... More

We stayed at The Swanage Haven for 1 week in July during the heatwave. On arrival we were greeted by David, who showed us around downstairs, then took us up to our room and helped us carry the luggage. The B&B is very clean and modern, with lovely touches in the rooms such as chocolates on arrival, filtered water and... More
