“What a Gem !!!”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

My husband and I spent four wonderful nights at Easter Cottage Swanage, and what a fantastic place it is. The whole cottage is immaculate throughout we stayed in the Purbeck Suit, which is tastefully decorated to a very high standard. Nice comfortable bed, and a large hospitality tray which included fresh fruit and a jug of milk every day.
The cottage has a Silver award for breakfasts, and you can understand why they are absolutely fabulous.

Have satyed several times and will definately be back, although often booked up quicly which says a lot.
Parking is tight and at a premium but Dave will always move his car to enable no hassle, breakfast is absolutely fantastic for both Myself the vegetarian and My meat loving husband.
The rooms are extremely spacious, clean and comfortable, and the location is ideal for whatever you look to do.
It definately defines "good things come in small packages" as to top it all Dave and Diane are both lovely friendly and helpful.
A total Gem

Room Tip: Only 2x rooms both lovely

Wanted a base for exploring Swanage and couldn't have asked for a more accommodating and welcoming owner. Drove down from London late on a Friday evening and, as promised, David made sure we could park outside the B and B by moving his car elsewhere - parking is at a premium on Eldon Terrace!

No complaints at all with the comfy bed and very pleased with the luxury ensuite facilities. The quality cooked breakfast set us up for the following day and we left the establishment in good spirits!

Easter Cottage is the best of all worlds - it's very central, near the shops, sea front, and steam railway, but in a cul-de-sac so there is no traffic noise. Parking in the street outside is free, and although there was no space when we arrived, Dave the proprietor moved his car so that we could get ours in.

We occupied the back bedroom which had a huge ensuite bath/shower room and toilet. Everything was very clean and comfortable.

Breakfast was excellent with a range of starters (including fresh grapefruit and locally produced muesli) and a lot of ingredients making up the cooked breakfast.

We liked everything about Easter Cottage and would stay there again.

We came upon this B&B by chance, and what a find! Enormous sized rooms, and the friendliest Proprietors you could wish to meet. The breakfast was probably the best we have ever had. A good sized flat screen TV/DVD Player positioned where we could both watch it while sitting on the bed, and a good selection of DVD's to borrow from the spacious lounge. As there are only two guest rooms we found the breakfast room enormouse with just two tables.

The other couple that were there have been going to Easter Cottage for about ten years, and were full of praise for it. There is no lack of things to do in Swanage, with the steam railway running every day to Corfe Castle and Norden. Walkers are also well provided for with walks of varying lengths along the "Jurassic Coast". There is also an excellent bus service enabling you to terminate your walk when you've had enough and return to swanage on the bus.

Colin & Teresa.

I couldn't believe that this B&B wasn't in Tripadvisor yet. The awards they have received over the years just reflect the fantastic work the owners (Dave and Diane) do. This is a small B&B (two rooms only) set up in a Grade II building, right in the town centre and very very close to the beach. However, you will not be bothered by noice of any kind as it is located in a small no through road so it's very quiet. We were so lucky to find the Easter Cottage. The room is of good size and the bathroom is huge. You will find all the perks you might want (from a LCD tv with DVD player (books and DVDs are available in the living room) and mini fridge to robes and slippers! Ah, they also offer free wi-fi. Dave was very efficient and friendly and he also cooks a wonderful breakfast! What else can you hope for? The price???? Very good indeed. The nearby hotel was not even close in terms of charm and comfort and was double the price. Swanage is an interesting place with a good choice of pubs, beach and nice coastal walks nearby - not mentioning the stunning Corfe Castle few miles down the road as well. If you are staying in the area, I cannot think of a better place to stay than the Eastern Cottage.
