  • "Stayed in the Panel room at the Town Hall Lodge bed and breakfast. It was lovely clean and modern and had a proper sized comfortable bed with good linen. This was our 2nd visit and it was just as good as the 1st. Owners still excellent with fantastic meals being served again. Beware of the one-way system, so best come in from the coast side then it's just a few hundred yards up the High St. Once you've passed the Floribunda-tea-lounge take a right at the dry cleaners."

  • "Excellent - exceptional breakfast, comfortable beds and immaculate rooms. Walls were a bit thin and there was some noise but still really cosy relaxing stay. Happily stay at Louisa Lodge if ever staying in or even close to Swanage or Poole area in the near future."

  • "The building and views were stunning. The communal areas were very comfortable and all the staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms are very clean and although containing bunk beds, very comfortable. Probably not for those requiring luxury but full marks from us and superb value for money. Worth considering if on a budget visiting Swanage, most other places seemed to be much more expensive. Good breakfasts, good banter, great rates!"

The room was delightful, quality linens and a comfy bed with breakfast just how we like it. Our hosts were charming and ever so helpful with it seems nothing too much trouble. Lovely and fully deserving of our 9/10!"

  • "Wonderful weekend at Railway Cottage B&B; Samantha and her family were lovely hosts. We had a great room that was clean and comfortable with all the mod cons. A delicious breakfast basket was delivered each morning to our room to eat at our leisure with pastries, yogurts, preserves, granola, cheese and cold meats, fresh fruit and juices. We would recommend to everyone wanting a relaxing getaway."

Local information

On England's southern coast lies the Dorset coastal resort of Swanage. Sitting on what is dubbed the 'Jurassic Coast', the town is popular with tourists and holidaymakers and has all the facilities expected of a resort. It is close to Dorset's other famous resorts such as Bournemouth, Poole and Weymouth. Anyone wanting to visit from Poole can save time and road mileage by taking the car ferry from Sandbanks which leads to Corfe Castle just a few miles further along.

Swanage has a certain quaint charm and is not as brash as many modern day holiday resorts. Its Victorian pier is particularly popular from where it is possible to look across to the Isle of Wight's 'Needles'. Boat trips are also available from the pier. Other attractions include the town's Beach Gardens and Heritage Centre. 'Heritage trails' are also available to allow visitors to see something of the old days gone by. Another way to see something of the area's delightful countryside is to take a run on the Swanage Railway.

The closest professional football club to Swanage is AFC Bournemouth, though non-league football is popular in the area. Being beside the sea it is not surprising that the town has its own diving and sailing clubs. The Isle of Purbeck Golf Club draws local and visiting golfers. Access to Swanage from Bournemouth is by using the renowned Swanage Ferry, a chain link ferry tha crosses the body of water that seperates the peninsula.

As would be expected, tourism makes a major contribution to the towns prosperity. The local Wealden Clay has led to brickworks being established on the town's outskirts. Dorset is a popular place for retirement and there are also nursing and residential homes in the area.
