As you will see from the photos Easter Cottage is a very pretty B & B both outside and inside, in a perfect location for the town. Although there are only two rooms, much attention has been paid to the decor which is stylish and well maintained. The moment we arrived we were greeted with a friendly welcome and the standard of hospitality did not drop throughout our stay. Breakfast was cooked fresh to order and did not disappoint, and the award certificates and personal thank you cards displayed on the breakfast room walls pay testament to the high standards. There were also plenty of special touches ,including the bathrobes and slippers in the wardrobe, and the mini fridge with fresh milk and filtered water. Many thanks to Dave for his attentiveness and for his excellent well-prepared breakfasts. Recommended.

We spent two nights at Easter Cottage (21 and 22 of February) and it was a very enjoyable experience. Dave is very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. The room was very comfortable and had everything to hand including a fridge with fresh milk and water and there were also dressing gowns and slippers provided. The whole house is spotlessly clean, there is a sitting room with a log fire - very good after being out in the biting easterly wind - and a cosy dining room. The choice for breakfast is extensive and beautifully cooked and presented. The cottage is full of charm and centrally situated so everything was within walking distance. We certainly recommend Easter Cottage as an excellent place to stay.

Room Tip: There are only two guest rooms and they both en-suite and a good size. The area is quiet.

We chose Easter Cottage after reading excellent reviews and hoped that they were true. They were indeed. We found it faultless. Our room was absolutely superb, very attractive with an extremely comfortable bed and every mod con, plus a co-ordinated en-suite the size of a bedroom. Easter Cottage has attractive, comfortable Guest Lounge and a Breakfast Room in which Dave, the host, serves the biggest, tastiest breakfast we have ever seen. Throughout, Easter Cottage is meticulously clean and well furnished. Dave, has obviously given so much attention to detail to ensure the perfect stay. We unreservedly recommend this Guest House and hope to return.

We wanted a short break so I was given the task of finding a B&B in Swanage.Looked at chains and others but Easter Cottage jumped out at me.Looked quaint and homely and pics spoke volumes.When we pulled up it was a lovely autumn day and obviously window boxes were not as pictured.The cottage is an end of terrace in a tight cul-de-sac and my heart sank,This was our first time away together and it had to be special ! However a knock on the door and Dave answered, smiling and welcoming.We were shown to our room, passing the lounge with open fire and lovely dining room, Dave spent a few minutes showing us the detail and left us too it.We were both impressed not only with our welcome but the room and its decor.We went down for breakfast and Dave introduced us to the other couple staying (there are only 2 rooms) and we chatted as you do to others,Breakfast was outstanding and Dave was attentive. If you like small,quaint and personality this is for you.We will definately return .

Was a lovely experience from start to finish. Especially liked the fresh milk and water in fridge much better than those tiny longlife things. Breakfast was great too, plenty of choice and plenty of it. We were looked after very well and the bed was so comfy. Will stay again if on a short break to Swanage, was a real treat.

My Husband and I have stayed at Easter Cottage twice now and thoroughly recommend it. It is advisable to book in advance as it is very difficult to get in. We have stayed in both of the rooms which are decorated to a very high standard. The breakfast is superb with plenty to choose from. The rooms are immaculate with plenty of space. It even has a fridge with fresh milk and water in. Also a nice bowl of fresh fruit in the room. Dave and Diane are excellent hosts and will help you enjoy your stay with their knowledge of swanage. We will certainly return as soon as we can.

Room Tip: Both rooms are on the same floor one at the back and one at the front. Both are quiet.
