We stayed here for 3 nights recently and had a lovely time. The guest house is in a good location, cited near the steam train and the local shops. The owners were very friendly and informative about the area. Lots of leaflets to plan your stay. Consideration has gone into making this an efficient and welcoming stay. We stayed in a room which was larger than most others we have visited. The bathroom was small but had everything you need. If we were to come to Swanage again I would stay here and would recommend it to other people.

I stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of August, the B&B is in a fantastic location - just across the road from the station. The room had a very 'cosy cottage' feel to it and was of a good size. The bathroom is more than a little on the small side and had a sliding door that didn't close all the way so I'd avoid staying here with someone you're easily embarressed in front of!! There was also a bit of noise coming from the water tank every time you flushed the toilet/had the taps running, but it didn't really bother us. Breakfast isn't amazing, but it is enough to set you up for the day. Any issues are dealt with quickly by the owners who live on site. Overall, for the price paid (£68p/n) it was a really good stay.

I have just returned from a lovely 10 day holiday at Firswood Guest House in Swanage where the welcome is as warm as the climate there.

This really is a lovely well run family guest house. Which offers a lovely breakfast and comfortable room with all the comforts of home.

The location is perfect for the beach, shops and the steam railway all of which are just a 5 minute walk. I couldn't wish for better!

We needed some where to stay for just one night.Most places in Swanage wanted two night stay minimum.Room was very comfortable with a washbasin in the room and small shower and toilet ensuite.Tea and coffee making and hair dryer provided.Black out blinds very efective
.Breakfast was from 8.30 so we were able to have a stroll first.I do not think I have ever seen such a range of cereal in a guest house before.Yogourt,toast and fry up as well(needee another walk after that)
The location is very good and parking provided.There are 7 rooms so some shuffling of cars may be needed.We had free access -given both front door key and room key
.They do not take credit cards.Would definatly recommend and intend to stay again.

Excellent service by the proprietors of this great establishment. Room quality was outstanding and so was the breakfast in the morning. The location was also extremely useful as the supermarket was just across the road and also access to the main roads with the car was very quick and efficient and of course the parking at the B&B was top notch. Would certainly stay here again.
