“Excellent!!!”
Reviewed 2 September 2010

Such a fantastic stay at Buddies B&B.

We stayed at Buddies B&B for one night with our 3 month baby girl.
The B&B located just 5 min from a beautiful sandy beach with various coffee shops restaurants also as with different water sport hiring facilities.
The B&B its self very clean and specious and the Landlords Jason and Leslie are very friendly and very very helpful.
We had a very unfortunate situation with our car as it broke down just 15 min from Jason’s and Leslie’s B&B and we had no other options but to call
them and ask for help. In return with no hesitation Jason drove to meet us and identified that the engine did not started due to car battery fault.
After the jump start we were back in our car with much better mood.
We spent very good night at Buddies and baby slept very well too which gave us an extra hour to sleep;).
After very delicious breakfast made by Jason he offered us to charge the battery with his own car battery charger.

We had fantastic day out in Swanage and unfortunately it was time to go back with charged battery to London.

We wish that all B&B’s and their Landlords in this country were like Jason and Leslie. We will definitely recommend the Buddies to our friends and we know where we will stay next time we in Swanage.

It was nice for the kids to be addressed in their own right and Leslie and Jason made everyone feel welcome. It was a bit tricky for us not being able to get in until 5pm but only because it was raining in swanage on the day we arrived. As it turned out someone would have been in to let us in but we were sticking to the 5pm timing because Jason and Leslie work so we thought there was no flexibility. Satisfying continental breakfast withtoast, cakes and scones in a big shared table in the kitchen - not ot everyone's taste perhaps but we enjoyed socialising with other guests, clean rooms, warm showers. We'll go back.

Had a very warm welcome from Lesley and Jason at Buddies. Our room was very comfotable and everything was extremley clean and tidy. Taking a 2 1/2 year old child away can always be daunting but they made us feel comfortable and let us use facilities as required. Breakfast was delicous and the homemade bread yummy!! Jason was very informative when it came to walks, trips etc. When returning to Swanage, hope to stay again. Thank you xx

An excellent stay - good decor room size and breakfasts. This quality B&B is close to the town centre for easy access but without noise from late night revellers in the town centre. Owners are very friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate in recommending this B&B as the four nights spent there were first class.

Jason and Lesley offer a warm welcome, but allow you to come and go as you please. The room was spacious and versatile - with 1 double and 2 bunk beds. Very clean and nicely decorated. All town amenities within easy walking distance.

I had a wonderful stay at Buddies and received a warm and friendly reception. Jason and Lesley are lovely people who made my stay very comfortable and complete. The rooms are very clean and cosy and I slept perfectly. Thank you both, Andrew Power.
