We recently stayed at the Glenlee Guest House for the first time. Lovely rooms, superb breakfast and dinner and nothing was too much trouble for the owners Bob and Tom. Thankyou for making our holiday so enjoyable and we look forward to seeing you both again in May 2017.

Fabulous hosts Bob and Tom can't do enough to make your stay enjoyable. From immaculate rooms with everything you need plus a few extras to the amazing breakfasts. For those evenings that you don't feel like venturing out the evening meals are a delight and a very good value. Glenlee is in a great location only a short walk away...

We stayed here for 1 night as we wanted to do some walking in the Purbecks. Owners couldn't have been more helpful, they lent us maps and walking guides and when they saw how tall we both are moved us to a room with a king size bed. The room was spotlessly clean with fresh flowers, water and a selection...

Thank you - and we'll have a duvet for you next time! Some people love the blankets and Egyptian cotton sheets, though, so we'll also keep some at the ready as well. There's a lot more of the Purbecks to explore so we look forward to seeing you again. Kind regards.

Glenlee is a wonderful guest house in a lovely part of Swanage. The owners are so friendly and make you feel so welcome. Nothing is too much trouble and the little extras like the fresh milk to take to the room are very much appreciated. We spent a fatastic two night stop here, following a previous stay a year ago....

Excellent in every way- comfort, food and hospitality etc. Already booked to return in 2017. I don`t want to say any more in case all the rooms get booked and we can`t come on our chosen dates. We have stayed here several times and have always been pleased.

Bob, Tom and Martin go out of their way to make you feel at home. Attention to detail is second to none.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Glenlee is a friendly, well run guest house where you can be sure of a warm welcome and a relaxed, peaceful stay. It is a short, level walking distance from Swanage's award-winning beach and town centre. We have a 4-star Silver Award rating from Visit England and facilities include a private car park, free Wi-Fi throughout the building, an alcohol licence and a large guest lounge in which to relax, chat, read, play games including darts, browse the comprehensive tourist information, gaze out over the front lawn towards Beach Gardens or simply enjoy a drink or sandwich. In warm weather guests enjoy relaxing, perhaps with a drink, in the loveseats on the south-facing patio or in the cosy sun porch, their experience enhanced by the scent of fragrant roses in our pretty front garden. We offer evening meals in summer months and during selected weeks throughout the season. Books, magazines and newspapers are available for guests to enjoy during their holiday and a personal daily paper can be ordered on request. All rooms are en suite, tastefully decorated and have fresh flowers, high-definition Freeview smart TVs (able to access catch-up services such as BBC iPlayer), DAB radios and hot drink-making facilities with delicious biscuits. At Glenlee we try hard to ensure guests have absolutely everything they need for the perfect break. English and German language spoken. ... more   less
