We could not find fault with anything at Little Gem. Wilma and Lawrie were welcoming and friendly. The rooms were clean and and bright and everything we could have needed was provided. In the bathroom there was plenty of places to hang a wet towel to dry and shower gel, conditioner was provided along with liquid and hard soap by the sink. Towels were a good size and lovely and soft. The bed was comfortable and pillows were good quality not the type that flatten as soon as you rest your head on them like in most B&B's!! A very good selection of tea's, coffee's was provided and a sachet of hot chocolate along with some biscuits. 2 bottles of mineral water were proved and all complimentary drinks were replenished daily. Breakfast was delicious and there was plenty to choose from both hot and cold food which was selected and the card left out for collection the night before. A selection of delicious spreads and sauces were available and a bowl of fresh fruit too. It was lovely to hear the steam train chuffing along occasionally as it was at the end of the road, quiet at night though! A lovely place to stay and quite central in Swanage, after parking up we walked everywhere all weekend clocking up 20 or so miles. Thank you Wilma and Lawrie, it truly is a Little Gem and we would certainly recommend it.

We chose well, it really is a little gem and our hosts were friendly and made us feel welcome. Our room was lovely and I cant think of anything that could have improved it. We stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed every moment.
There is loads to do in and around Swanage, Little Gem is about ten minutes walk from the town, steam train station, bus station and beach, probably cant get any better than that.

Room tip: Think all rooms would be good

Excellent guest house very clean , comfy beds, large shower, nice freshly cooked breakfasts what more could you want? Hosts extremely helpful and obviously knew the local area, we have been to Swanage a few times but found a couple of new places to visit!
Would definitely recommend, only a ten min walk to the railway station and town. The addition of a fridge and a fan in the room would be a bonus especially when hot as we were lucky enough to experience!
Lovely place for a quiet relaxing break just what we were looking for
.

Room tip: Most rooms upstairs so need to be able climb stairs !

Lovely clean and bright rooms with kind hosts. Nothing is too much trouble for Lawrie and Wilma. A gentle stroll to the railway and then down to the little town and beach.
The area is quiet and relaxing with plenty of walking on the cliff top.
