“Our second visit was as memorable as the first.”
Reviewed September 2, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The location and views are wonderful. Being close to all the amenities that Swanage offers meant that it was not necessary to use the car unless we wanted to travel futher. Which we did on occasions.
The secure parking space is a bonus.
The accommodation is excellent.
Already thinking about our third visit.

“Stunning Sea Views at the Heart of Swanage”
Reviewed July 20, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The apartment is so close to the sea it's like being on board a yacht. The dining area bay window overlooks the quay and Victorian style pier while the lounge area overlooks the beach. The well equipped kitchen is conveniently off the lounge/dining area which adds to the boat like feeling. It was lovely to hear the sea at night washing against the quay from the main bedroom. The apartment is spacious and well appointed. We holidayed at the start of this summer's heat wave so our stay was coloured by the rosy glow of the sun.

There is so much to see and do in Swanage. One evening we saw Romeo and Juliet performed at the open air theatre which is visible from the dining window. We took the steam train to Corfe Castle, went on a guided town tour/talk led by Stewart Borritt starting at the Heritage Centre, saw Man of Steel at the Mowlem theatre and went to an entertaining evening of folk music. If you drive take your own sun chairs because the beach is only 5 minutes walk from the apartment. The beach has such soft sand - it is glorious and safe for children. There are plenty of good restaurants around – try the dressed crab from the seafood restaurant close by the apartment.

Once at the apartment you may not need to use your car again until you go home because it is so central.

“Perfect English seaside holiday.”
Reviewed July 9, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Quayside Court is ideally set right adjacent to the beach. It's just a few steps to the sands and with safe secure parking at the property what could be better than to leave the car parked where it is and to enjoy all the local amenities on foot. Everything is in easy reach: shops, restaurants, the Swanage steam railway and of course the beach.
The accommodation was ideal for the 5 of us (my wife, myself, our daughter, son-in-law and grandson). Everything was clean and tidy for our arrival; the kitchen although small was well equipped and everything was clean and to hand.
Bedroom space was good and there was plenty of storage for the clothes and our cases. The beds were comfortable and mattresses neither too soft nor too hard although this will naturally be subject to individual preference.
The views from the living/dining area are stunning, there is always something to see going on and if you are awake really early in the summer months the sunrises across the bay are worth it alone.
We enjoyed our stay in Swanage and will return again as well as recommend to friends.
There is a superb Italian restaurant just around the corner and fish and chips are available at the end of the road with a choice of vendors.
All in all a perfect venue for the typical English seaside holiday.

“Best holiday in years”
Reviewed July 9, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

person found this review helpful

My wife and I are getting on a bit now and have lost count of the number of holiday homes we’ve hired over the years. Some have been brilliant whilst others have been a disgrace. None, though, were as well situated as the flat we stayed in last week at Quayside Court In Swanage. With a front door that’s just feet from the waters edge and shops and restaurants literally just a stone throw away, there’s no need to use the car once you’ve arrived. No2 was plush and comfortable with everything except towels and bed-linen provided. Swanage is a lovely town and we enjoyed the best holiday we’ve had in years.

“Excellently located, abutting the beach and High Street”
Reviewed May 8, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Nicely presented flat in holiday let purpose-built block.
Located on the first floor with easy staircase access.
Reserved parking for one car on forecourt.
Located right on the sea front, with beautiful bay views, and next to the High street.
If you're after peace and tranquillity perhaps further up the hill in Durlston is more suitable, however if you want a central location next to the beach then this is the place.

“Fabulous apartment with the best views in Swanage”
Reviewed March 28, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

My husband and I, and friends have stayed in this apartment several times. We have booked again to stay in October 2013.
The apartment has the best views in Swanage, overlooking the bay and hills. It is very central too, and although it's only a minute or so away from the shops, pubs and restaurants, the flat is very quiet. The only noise you can hear are the seagulls sometimes and the sea, of course.
Inside, the flat is spotlessly clean. The furnishings are all top quality, with a leather sofa and very comfy beds. The kitchen equipment is spotless too and the cutlery, crockery, pots, pans and glasswear are all plenitful and very good quality.
The family who own this apartment use it themselves and you can tell. They really do keep everything in 'top notch' condition.
You actually book through the owners, too. No agents to deal with and we always prefer that.
If you have any questions at all, just give them a call. They are a really friendly family and just want everyone who stays in their flat to have a nice holiday.
