Robertsbrook Guest House
Ranked #11 of 51 Swanage B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 14, 2012

We had a very nice stay with a clean, warm, comfortable bedroom. The guest house was well situated for the sea front, local walks and was less than a 5min walk to the steam train rail station. Breakfast was excellent and all-in-all our stay was excellent. Claire was an excellent hostess and if we go back to Swanage we will definitley phone Claire again.

Room Tip: Room 3 over looks the Steam train rail station.

Because we were the only residents we were offered a choice of rooms. The black and silver room upstairs on right was very nice, and the shower room whilst being a bit small was spotlessly clean as was the whole room. Stairs were a bit steep but that was our choice and Claire did offer to carry our suitcase!
The location was perfect, with the Railway/bus station, Coop, White Swan pub and Town Centre all within walking distance. The breakfasts were more than adequate with a good choice(even black pudd) and beautifully cooked. All in all good value, and should we be in the area again we shall return.

From our welcoming arrival of coffee and delicious home made cake to the beautiful room and excellent well presented breakfasts Claire was the perfect hostess.
Claire is a person prepared to go the extra mile making this guest house well deserving of its four star rating.
We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Stayed in the de luxe suite. Amazing!

We stayed here this weekend just gone, and what a lovely place to stay. Firstly, when booking, this was the only B+B I could find that would allow a one night stay, which sets it apart, so a thumbs up for that!
The welcome by Claire was lovely, and there is parking on site as well. The room was gorgeous, very clean and well presented, very comfy bed too! Good locations, near to everything you need, town, beach etc, and the Swanage Railway stop is just accross the road.
Breakfast in the morning was really lovely, and lots of variety. I particularly liked the fact all the cereals were labelled and there were gluten free varieties too. There was also a basket of pastries, which went down very well with my husband!
On checking out, Claire let us leave our car in the car park for a couple of hours whilst we took the steam train to Corfe (definitely recommended too!) to save us looking for parking elsewhere, this was a really kind thing to do, and not something any other B+B has offered before.
I would love to stay here again, and hopefully we will sometime this year.
As I said previously, the fact we were allowed to book for one night only was the selling point for me. Many other B+Bs turned us away, as they had a 2 night booking policy, but when you only want a weekend away, and are limited by working restrictions, one night is all you need. Thankyou Claire and Chris for letting us city dwellers come to Dorset for the one night we needed!

Room Tip: Room 4, which we stayed in, does not have an en-suite, but you do hae your own private bathroom on t...
