    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.

    I've stayed in Swanage several times and this reflects my like of Swanage and the surrounding area. The Town / beach / numerous eating options / the compact layout of the Town makes it easy to navigate. Also great walks in and around Swanage for short strolls or longer treks. Can't say I would have anywhere that I would avoid on subsequent visits.

    Additional extra charges for dogs were not included in my initial expectations. I specifically looked for pet-friendly accommodations, assuming that the listed price would cover any potential pet fees. However, I was disappointed to discover that there was an additional £30 charge for my two teacup dogs. The prices for meals were exceedingly high, considering that the quality and taste were not particularly impressive.

    Swanage is a compact seaside town but with the added advantage of an excellent bus service and the Swanage steam railway. The beach is clean and sandy. There are boat trips from the pier during the summer. A good selection of shops not just seaside souvenirs . Plenty of choices for evening meals and snacks.

    Swanage is one of my most favourite seaside towns!

    Swanage is one of my most favourite seaside towns! It is an absolutely beautiful town with a gorgeous bay, with very safe bathing and also dramatic cliff tops too. The town has many lovely shops and lots of fantastic eating places around the harbour and further in the town too. It is facinating to also learn about the history of Swanage and the connections to London and royalty! It is the most wonderful family seaside location xxx

    Lots of very good and varied eating houses lots of good pubs, amazing steaks at the Red Lion, excellent drink, food and friendly service at the Ship Inn and although out of the Town centre The Crows Nest was very good. Swanage is not a drivers paradise, much easier to park up and walk round. Most impressive shop in Swanage was Curiosity gift shop, you can loose yourself in there for hours.

    I have to start by saying that John and Martine are so welcoming and friendly, you feel at home immediately. Easy to check in to your room. Location is great. An easy short walk to the seafront and town centre. There is a pub three doors away that does decent food. The number 50 bus stop is outside the pub. This direction takes you to the swanage ferry and onwards to bournemouth. Breakfast is cooked fresh when you arrive to the room, there is a big range of food to choose from and if you leave there still hungry its your own fault.

    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

    We chose not to have breakfast at the accommodation as we like to go out. The location was ideal for walking to the beach and into town. Martin very welcoming and friendly and checked both mornings everything was ok. Room was clean and bed comfortable. Not a lot of space in the room, however this was fine for us for 2 nights and we were just using it for somewhere to sleep.

    Located in the centre of Swanage close to numerous pubs and restaurants. An ideal centre for exploring the South West Coast Path. The hotel was everything that was described and felt just like a large family home. The grounds are a true delight with many specimen plants and places to sit. Car parking is free and plentiful which is a real bonus in a town like Swanage.

    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 location is wonderful. Views are amazing and you can walk on the shore to get to town. The beach area is less packed than closer to town which is very nice. There is a place to get evening drinks in the lobby and the staff there were absolutely lovely and very helpful
