Having stayed in the standard double room at David & Diane's B&B for three nights, we'd recommend The Swanage Haven to anybody who values quality hospitality. The proximity to the town centre and beach, and the room size are just fine. What raises it above the average - and makes it absolutely worth paying a bit more than you might...

We have just returned from a 4 night break at the Swanage Haven. We found it on trip advisor as we wanted a break after a bad couple of weeks following a bereavement. The hotel is fantastic, the decor is lovely, we were in room 1, though it is a small room it is lovely and cosy and comfortable, the...

Very good room and only 10-15 minute walk from the main part of Swanage. The room was clean with tea and coffee facility in the room along with wi fi. There is a bar with an honesty box. Breakfast was very good with a choice of cooked breakfast as well as juices and a variety of cereal and fruit. The...

My husband and I decided to stop in Swanage for one night recently. We looked at TripAdvisor and rang the top choice. Luckily, they had a room, even though we rang mid-morning to stay that night. We arrived to a very warm welcome and an excellent recommendation for a place to eat. When we returned, we made use of the...

Staying at the Swanage Haven was a last minute booking that proved to be more amazing than we had initially understood. The staff were really friendly and gave us a great introduction. Not only did the place look beautiful, it also was amazingly clean and well kept. The menu offered a 'Vegan Breakfast' as well as a vegetarian and meaty...

The Swanage Haven is a real find. Great location just off the beach front, lovely hosts, the most wonderful breakfasts (Egg Royale and home made granola to die for) the cleanest of clean in all respects, lovely modern and tastefully decorated and wonderfully comfortable. What more can I say, a perfect stay.

A brilliant small family run hotel. Our room was excellent and very comfortable. Ideal location for sea front and town. Absolutely outstanding breakfast selection. All food is either home made or locally sourced and delicious. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful. Great location for exploring surrounding areas with delightful walks close by. We loved our stay here and hope...
