“Nice stay”
Reviewed 15 May 2014 via mobile

Pleasant little B&B right in the centre of Swanage. Dave the proprietor couldn't do enough for us. Parking was a bit of an issue as there is only limited parking with the B&B being so close to town. Having a fridge in the room is a nice touch.

We booked this B & B online and was really pleased that we did. The rooms were spacious and exceptionally clean, with all facilities and special little touches like, bathrobes, slippers and cork screw and goblets.

The breakfast in the morning defiantly set us up for the day with lots of variety to choose from - can recommend the full English cooked to perfection.

The guy that ran this quaint little cottage was really friendly and nothing was to much for him, will certainly recommend to all of our friends and defiantly return.

The bed were very comfortable and soft perhaps a little too soft but that just me and my back problem.

Thankyou for having us our stay with you in your cottage was great.

We have stayed in a number of B&B's in Swanage over the years but this is our favourite. It looks small from the outside but don't be deceived, the rooms are a very good size with lovely ensuite. We just need to make sure we book it early to avoid the disappointment . Great B&B right in the heart of Swanage. Dave the owner couldn't do enough for us, he is a fantastic host whilst at the same time leaving you in peace. The prefect balance. We were made to feel very welcome. The bedrooms are so much bigger than you expect from the outside. The open wood fire is just lovely to relax in front of after a days walking. Good breakfast and comfortable bed with nice ensuite bathroom. We will definitely stay here every time we come to Swanage.. Thanks for a great stay Dave and we hope to see you again very soon. Make sure the fire is burning. If only all B&B's were run like this.

I’d like to say “Don’t stay here” because I want to keep it to myself and be selfish, but I can’t. My wife and I have just spent what can only be described as the best 5 relaxing nights away in Swanage at Easter Cottage and the Swanage Blues Festival. The room we stayed in was large and had everything anyone would need, the bathroom, large, clean and could fit 3 in the bath/ shower.... whoo hooo and Dave, well what can you say, easy going, brilliant dry sense of humour, accommodating, helpful, friendly and nothing was any trouble.
Easter Cottage is in a great location, 5 minutes to everywhere, pubs, restaurants, heritage railway, seafront.... Brilliant Holiday Thanks

Room Tip: Just enjoy the experience, we had the Peveril Room which was at the front looking over the street, b...

My daughter and I spent two nights at Easter Cottage in early August. Can only repeat previous comments about the lovely room and en suite, beautiful breakfast and the great location. Literally a five minute walk to station - being a steam train enthusiast can thoroughly recommend the steam train to Corfe Castle We had a wonderful few days and would thoroughly recommend this b&b!

We spent three nights here over the Swanage Carnival weekend - 26-29 July. There is very little to add to the previous reviews. Dave is the perfect host. Genuinely warm and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble. The house is spotlessly clean. Both bedrooms are attractive with flat screen TV, fridge and large bath/shower en suite. The bed was comfortable and we slept very well in the Egyptian cotton sheets. Breakfast is personally served by Dave and the quality is excellent with a varied selection to suit all tastes. The location could not be better as Easter Cottage is literally a minute walk to the town centre. To cap it all the weather held out for us to enjoy a brilliant carnival weekend.

We highly recommend Easter Cottage for your stay in beautiful Swanage.
