Reviewed 14 April 2014

Stayed again at Caythorpe on my six monthly business trip. Still excellent standard, value for money and service. Rooms nice and fresh while being just yards from beach and shops make this an excellent base. Free car parking so can leave car behind while you explore the town. Alan, as always an excellent host.

Stayed: April 2014, travelled on business

Caythorpe House has a great location near the seafront and town, with a lovely recently decorated room and very good host. Guest House is clean and tidy and comfortable.

Free parking, great breakfast and affordable prices representing very good value for money !!

Stayed for one night. The room was very pleasant, spacious and quiet. Very good breakfast with plenty to eat. Car parking and close to the town centre for restauarants etc. This B&B represents very good value and I would recommend it.

Room Tip: Room 5 is very pleasant.

Hi Nick, Thank you for your kind comments. So pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We are so lucky to be located so close to both the beach and the town centre meaning that once the car is safely parked it's so easy to reach the attractions of Swanage! We look forward to welcoming you back next time you are in the area.

We stayed at Caythorpe House for the Saturday night of the Blues Festival last weekend (March 2014). Alan is an excellent host, making us feel really welcome, even though it was very much a last minute thing on our part. Caythorpe House was really clean and pleasant and in a perfect position, near the beach and only a short walk along the seafront to the town. Breakfast was really nice. There is on-site parking. Really pleasant. We had a lovely weekend. Would definitely stay here again if and when we go to the Blues Festival again. Thanks, Ann and John (Furness)

Room Tip: Just phone Alan, who will be only too pleased to help with your requirements.

Hi Ann & John, Thank you for your kind words. It certainly was a very busy weekend and I am so glad that you had a great time. We are certainly one of the closest Guest Houses to the beach and being on the level part of the town is a bonus too! We look forward to welcoming you back to Caythorpe House.

Good host and very friendly, close to the town and the seafront, very clean and comfortable, good breakfast. Our room was recently refurbished and Alan had done an excellent job. I'd certainly recommend Caythorpe.

Since last year the bedrooms have been refurbished and beautiful. Beds very comfortable and linen so fresh. Alan is a fantastic host and nothing is too much trouble. The breakfasts are superb. The location is just yards from the seafront. Being made so welcome makes this place so pleasant. If a first time to Swanage then Alan will point you in all the right directions. Judging by the repeat visits from other guests that were there it cannot be just my view on the place. Will be back next year.

Excellent host, clean comfy accomodation and a great breakfast at a competitive price. Ideal location for a business or short leisure stay in the Swanage area. A pity the weather isn't alwasy as reliable as the service at Caythorpe House.
