The most friendly and warm welcome greeted me on arrival at Railway Cottage Guest House. The room I used was really comfortable and spacious with easy access and plenty of storage space. The en-suite bathroom while compact, functioned well and was very clean. The lovely freshly cooked breakfast set you up for the day and taste superb, it is served by the friendly hosts in a quaint relaxed dining room. Warning: you will need a good healthy appetite to get through the whole breakfast or, you could take some of it away with you in a doggy bag!

The location is ideal being just a few minutes walk from the beach and sea front which leads towards the town centre. Overall, a great guest house in a great location and one that I will be visiting many times.

I have stayed at the railway cottage many times in 2010, it comes highly recommened..The rooms are very clean, beds are comfortable..The management are really friendly and very helpful.. Home cooked breakfast every morning is to die for...very family orientated.
The bed and breakfast is only a two minute walk to the sandy beach and beautiful walk ways..

Loved our stay at Railway Cottage Guest House, have stayed a few times now and can’t complain about a thing!! The owners are very friendly and will go out of their way to make you feel welcome. LOVE the breakfast, better than any cafe :-) The rooms are very clean and comfortable, well worth the price. Noticed they are re-decorating throughout and looks fantastic and alot brighter than it did before. 2 minute walk to the beach and 5 minute walk to the town. All you could want for a lovely enjoyable stay in Swanage - will definitely be staying here many times again :-) xxx
