We have stayed at Purbeck Cliffs around 6 or 7 times, each time for a week (so many times we couldn't remember how often!) usually once or twice a year. We find the accommodation and location perfect for our quiet escapes away with our family. The owners have always been very friendly and helpful. Our kids love the pool and snooker table, the huge round chairs and we love the sauna, the view of the garden, and sitting by the pool quietly reading our books while the kids are occupied with the sun blazing through the triple aspect windows, Lovely! Looking forward to getting back there again.

Me and my partner have just got back from a 3 day stay at purbeck cliffs apartments, we booked it due too he used to have childhood holidays in swanage with his family and as it was his birthday on the Sunday i thought it would be a nice birthday weekend for him, when we arrived the outside grounds and gardens of the apartments was amazing, we was greeted by the owner who was very polite and friendly she showed us around the apartment, and told us about a few restaurants and attractions in town, the apartment was wonderful very big and spacious, the pool was great we spent our 3 days either out at swanage beach (which is beautiful) or back at the apartment swimming in the huge pool, i highly recommend this apartment, it is a great place to spend your holiday weather you are having a romantic week away or a family week away, this place is amazing. xxx

I have just seen the above review as I was looking at the property to rebook for this spring. I simply couldn't believe what I was reading... and in fact had to stop before getting even half way through as it was making me so cross! We stayed at Purbeck Cliffs in early December after a very tough year, to spend some happy time with our 3 yr old son and frankly thought we had died and gone to heaven! This apartment & its delightful hosts couldn't have done more to make us feel at home and yet on holiday at the same time. We were in the pool several times a day, cooked, lounged around, slept too much and went for wonderful (if bracing!) walks through the wonderful surrounding country and along the cliffs. When we rode on the steam engine my son nearly exploded with joy! We have certainly never enjoyed a UK break as much and I can't wait to get back there.

Management Response
3 Feb 2012
As owners of Purbeck Cliffs Apartment we welcome comments and suggestions and have run the apartment very successfully for over 20 years. Each year we are visited by an independent Quality Assurance Assessor recognised by the Tourist Board to check the Apartment and we have consistently maintained our four star rating.

We were sorry this contributor did not enjoy her holiday, despite the beautiful weather they experienced. The comments about the pool were particularly unfair; the pool is kept heated to 81 degrees and above. It is checked at least twice a week and there is certainly no algae growing in it. It is unrealistic to promise to keep the pool totally insect free but we are always happy to give the pool an extra clean if requested.

Each year we redecorate and renew equipment and as part of this ongoing programme items such as the garden seats would clearly have been replaced, had this or some of the other points raised been brought to our attention at the time these would have been dealt with.

Purbeck Cliffs Apartment with its own private swimming pool and 2 acre garden presents outstanding value for money and compares very favourably with similar types of holiday where the swimming pool, sauna and snooker room are shared with other guests.
