Stayed for a long weekend in October and had a great time in a COVID safe environment. The room was comfy clean and spacious, breakfast was delicious and the host friendly and accommodating. Great stay in a great location
Spotless room which had everything we needed. An excellent breakfast with plenty of choice and really good quality. The hotel is in a great location only a minute from the beach and a 10 minute stroll into the centre of Swanage. Alan was a superb host and we will definitely be returning to the Rookery.
Friendly owners - very knowledgeable about places to see & nothing seemed too much h trouble. Gorgeous room & very comfy bedroom! Great breakfast with a good selection of choices. On the whole, a great hotel, would definitely recommend.
Lovely clean Covid aware B&B. Very good location within walking distance of the beach/town. Bus service nearby but also provides off road parking. The room was beautifully decorated, as was the on suite bathroom. Stairs are quite steep for anyone with problems walking but hosts very helpful and willing to carry luggage If needed. Breakfast was great with good selection and there was a snack menu in the bar for the evenings which was useful after a long day out. Couldn’t ask for better hosts, such a friendly helpful couple, nothing was too much trouble, would definitely stay there again. Swanage is beautiful, lovely beach stunning scenery, lots of great walks. Steam railway from the town, boats trips along the Jurassic coast.
We booked The Rookery as we were visiting friends in Swanage, right from our arrival the hosts were lovely, nothing was too much trouble. There is a lovely welcoming and relaxing feel to the place and our room was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean with everything there that you could want. The bedding is really good quality and the bed was so comfortable. The breakfast menu was extensive and all freshly cooked with good quality products and the option to ask for more if you wanted it. I cannot recommend this place highly enough, you will not be disappointed, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
