Railway Cottage, hotel in Swanage

Railway Cottage is the perfect location for a holiday or short break on the Dorset coast.

The railway cottage is a beautiful old house which hasn't been spoilt. The room was light and airy, spotlessly clean. The location was fantastic, we would love to return. Hopefully stay for longer next time.

    Fish and chips on the front were superb, and there are lots of nice cafes. The pier is invigorating with fantastic views, the steam train station within a short walk, and a lovely long promenade to walk. There are a good number of welcoming pubs, and a variety of restaurants including pizza, mediteranean cuisine, indian takeaway, burgers, and wonderful bakeries offering Dorset apple cake, pasties and pastries. Lots of interesting shops with Jurassic keepsakes, RNLI gifts, and antiques. There are supermarkets, a chemist, and cashpoints. Once down in the town and at the seafront, it is pretty flat, so easy to get a round, but the hills can make it a difficult climb back after a day on the beach!

    Great traditional sea side town full of everything a family would need for a good holiday. So many kinds of take away food, restaurants and chippies. Brilliant choice of shops for all tastes. Steam train trips. Boat trips and crabbing in the small harbour. Very long sandy beech and beautiful walks to be had along the bay and cliffs. Bird watchers will enjoy the bird colonies along the cliffs.

    Out of season Swanage is still charming. Small enough to walk round, but large enough to have a variety of shops and eateries. The Salt Pig was good for eating in. You can walk the coast path amongst other walks.

    we only had two full days in Swanage in the middle of November, so our experience was not typical, We did look to drive into the town and park on the road by the side of the seafront, however the parking charge of £4.30 for the first hour put us off, who wants to benefit from 3 hours at £7.00 in November. As we didn't use the town car parks we cannot comment on the charges in them. My husband has bad knees so we didn't park and walk around the town but there did seem to be some interesting little, individual shops as we drove through, We found Corfe Castle a delight to visit, especially the NT tea shop! We hope to go back.

    We had a fab week staying at Arbour House B&B. Fraser and Sarah are great hosts and made us feel very welcome. The room was very clean, comfortable and spacious and the breakfast was very tasty with a great selection to choose from. The B&B is in a great position within a few minutes walk of the beautiful sandy Swanage beach. We will definitely be back soon. Thank you Fraser and Sarah x

    Spacious, very clean, and well equipped. The kitchen had a great gas cooker and oven. The microwave was good and was the kettle. Beds are very comfy and bedding. They are good clean quality. Bathroom clean with lovely shower. The living had excellent seating with a very comfortable main sofa and a chair with leg rest. The location is perfect since Swanage Beach is only 5 mins walk away.

    We had a family room, which was excellent as our grandson had his own side room. Breakfast and evening meals offered a good choice and the evening meals were all accompanied by a good selection of fresh vegetables. The location of the hotel offers wonderful views of the bay and there are convenient steps down to the beach.

    The apartment was very spacious and the cleanliness was very thorough and the whole interior smelt divine. Good sized rooms and felt very homely. Very good insulation and only a short stroll into the town and the beach. Modern interior with great use of the space in relation to the kitchen and mezzanine lounge.

    We were fortunate to arrive when the small car park had a space. The breakfast was cooked to order placed the night before and was excellent. Our room was spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. The check in and check out procedures were the best I have ever experienced when staying in any hotel.

    The ambience of this Edwardian hotel and the magnificent views of Swanage Bay is the best in Swanage. Had a lovely evening meal and my room overlooking the sea was super comfy. Felt very safe as a solo traveller and staff very friendly.
