Stayed at this apartment for four nights. Place was perfect. Situated in the heart of the town everything you need be it breakfast, lunch or a night out is only five minutes away. There are a few gems in town pretty much like the apartment. Hannah the owner makes you feel welcomed from the first phone call to the first meet. Classy lady. Would recommend this place. Never bothered with a review before but thought this was worth while.
We stayed in the flat for a week. The fact that it’s over a shop may put some people off, however it’s off the main shopping street and the shop sells gifts. You can get some noise at night, but the bedrooms are at the back of the flat. The parking space was about 4 minutes walk from the flat, so the owners helped us unload the car and bring our stuff up to the flat before taking me to where the parking was. The flat had everything we needed. Not just the facilities like cooker, fridge freezer, microwave and washing machine, but also all the equipment down to small items like a pizza cutter. They also supplied coffee, tea, milk, butter, bread and even a bottle of wine! This was the first time we stayed in the centre of Swanage. This meant I could get fresh bread each morning and I could walk the children to the beach and back each evening in their wetsuits. We had a good response to an issue which was our fault. Having good Wifi was also a plus. A couple of niggles that come from a being a new flat. The fan in the bathroom was too weak and the toilet difficult to flush for the children. However, these were minor set against the positives. An excellent base to have a great holiday. We will be back.
Thank you so much to Hannah and Paul who were super lovely hosts.
We were met on arrival to help with our luggage and to show us around. Welcomed with wine, bread, milk and other essentials. The apartment was fresh and beautifully clean. Considering that pets often stay, there were no pet fur or smells at all. Dog dishes and bedding for a pooch were also clean and very much appreciated by our border collie.
We were advised on local amenities and dog friendly food establishments which we took advantage of and were fantastic.
Hannah was only a phone call away if we needed any assistance.
We were taken to a very close safe carpark in which we could Park our car. As Swanage is a quaint little town with everything within walking distance we didn't need the car to get anywhere.
We would definitely recommend to anyone as it was very good value for money and we would very much like to visit again.
Was slightly put off by the exterior of this apartment and how to get to it: up and alleyway, through a door, up some steps, through another door and then up 2 more flights of steps and through another door to reach the door of the apartment(not recommended if you have mobility problems).
Don't let this put you off however as the interior of the apartment is fantastic- clean, new, modern and tasteful design and very spacious. It also had everything you could possibly need- the kitchen was superbly equipped, the TV has Sky, the bathroom has a great shower and the bedrooms have comfy beds, lots of lighting and power points. (could have done with a mirror in the single bedroom however!).
The locations is ideal- you can walk to every part of Swanage- shop, restaurants, supermarket and the apartment owners kindly provide you with a parking space (a bit of a walk up the hill but worth it to get free parking in what must be a very busy resort in the summer).
We were also provided with a fantastic welcome pack of fresh bread, milk, butter and wine!! (very welcome after a long journey).
As it was April and mid-week, Swanage was basically closed in the evenings: most of the restaurants were shut (even Harry Ramsdens). We ate in a very busy Italian (only restaurant open) called La Trattoria which was good. We also drove a few minutes out of town to the Village Inn on the Ulwell Cottage & Caravan campsite. We nearly didn't go in as it looked shut but we're so glad we did as it was really good: lovely interior and good quality food. I recommend it for anyone else staying in Swanage out of season.
Nice, clean, modern apartment, ideally situated just off Swanage high street - minutes from the sea, shops and amenities. Friendly owner, and a nice selection of essentials (and more) were waiting in the apartment when we arrived. Very dog-friendly, with blankets for the sofas so the pup could relax on his holiday.
Had a lovely weekend break at this Apartment, it was a real home from home. Hannah and Lynn made us so welcome with a few extra touches. It is right in the centre of Swanage and not far from the beach. Would definitely book up to go again.
