“Weekend away”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

Good position in Swanage town centre, car parking available. Helpful host and good breakfast. Reasonable price for room but not 4 star accomodation. Small double is single size with double bed in and is tight squeeze around the bed. Bending over basin in e suite meant you touched the door. Would be difficult if you were on the larger side. Good selection of drinks but on windowsill which was lacking space.

stayed 2-5 oct 2013--what do you need from a guest house? cleanliness,good nights sleep,and a good breakfast---well you get all of this in abundance and more if thats possible--centred in the heart of things with car parking means you can walk to most places--did struggle a bit after the huge breakfast and on the third day i managed to request less, never thought i would be beaten but claire managed it--just book it and you wont be disappointed--

the robertsbrook is in a fantastic position for the town ( literally across the road, but don't be put off because that is not a minus point, the quaint steam train is opposite the house.there is a much needed car park as most areas around swanage are either permits, restricted or charged parking. the whole house is spotless and very high standards are implemented, the breakfast was delicious, piping hot and more than enough. i have never seen scrambled egg so well presented in any guesthouse i have stopped. the bed was one of the comfiest and the shower in the ensuite was amazing. the only small negative to mention was the size of the ensuite, which was really quite small, we didn't find it a problem but might be something to bear in mind when asking to book a room.
overall i would highly recommend a stay here as it is lovely and owners really pleasant and helpful to.

Just returned from a fab weekend at the Swanage Folk Festival with our Border Morris side. We stayed at Robertsbrook and was made very welcome right from the start. Claire the owner is very friendly and accommodating, very efficient and a credit to her business. The room was stylish, a little compact maybe, but had everything to hand with a nice selection of drinks and biscuits. The bed was sooooo comfortable. Breakfast was great -to start there was a good selection of fresh fruit and yoghurt with a lovely array of cereals, nuts and dried fruits. There was a choice of full English, or part thereof, or smoked salmon and scrambled egg. It was all cooked perfectly and there was plenty of it, topped off with tea or coffee, toast and preserves. Perfect.

The location was brilliant and it was a change to have parking spaces on site, previous places we have stayed do not have spaces and it is very pot luck to find a convenient spot.

I would recommend this place to anyone, and have already reserved a room for next year's Festival.

My partner and myself decided to head to Swanage for their amazing fancy dress New Year's eve celebrations only a couple of day's before New Year. We eventually found a vacancy in this guest house and would recommend this place to anyone. We were welcomed warmly by the owners, the room was lovely and clean and the breakfast was perfect. We are currently looking to stay over again this new year! The location was perfect as it literally took less than five minutes to walk in Swanage Town Centre and was still only a short drive away from the Swanage-Sandbanks chain ferry.

My friend and I were undertaking a coastal trek and needed somewhere to act as a base and recuperate.

The welcome we received was lovely. Due to the early start of our walk missed our first breakfast but were unexpectedly supplied with a packed lunch as a replacement. Fortunately we got breakfast the next day (we went for a Full English to aid our recovery) and it was gorgeous and generous.

Our room was spacious, clean and well appointed. Excellent location for the town/beach. Very friendly owner with plenty local knowledge to direct you where to go.

All in all wonderful place to stay and would recommend.

Claire goes way beyond your 'usual host'. Fantastic hospitality with a naturally friendly and accommodating personal touch. Only downside would be size of room and bathroom, but hardly a worry given the quality and variety of the breakfast and the great location for local wandering and days out exploring the wonderful coast/countryside... for which Claire will give you some great tips if needed. Highly enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: The standard rooms and bathrooms are fairly small, but the shower good and bed large and comfy. Surp...
