Positive Reviews

Location That's Just Perfect.

Visitors said this B&B is close to town while also being walkable to other areas such as the beach. Plus, it's located on a level grade so you don't have hills to navigate. It's near the railway station, but not too close so that's it's noisy. It's also on a quiet street were things are pretty peaceful. In short, it's a great place to stay in Swanage.

Great Value for the Money.

Whether people bought the room only or the breakfast option, they all thought it was well worth the money they spent. A number of visitors said they would be returning sometime in the future.

Perfect Guesthouse Hosts.

Many visitors called out the efforts by the owners (since the location is family run). In addition to being friendly, they mentioned that they didn't seem annoyed when asked for help.

Negative Reviews

Might Have to Circle.

If you come by car, you may have to drive around the block to find a place to park. However, the majority of visitors didn't have an issue with finding parking spaces near the hotel.
