“Warm Welcome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

Our welcome was warm and friendly. Alan made us feel at home from the beginning. The room was clean, well appointed, and had a very comfortable bed. The lounge and dining room were homely. The English breakfast was great. Although close to the beach and town centre, it was very quiet. We don't know what they could have done to make our stay any more pleasant.

Hats off to Alan; friendly, helpful and accommodating host. Easy walk into town/train station. Clean and pleasant room. Great breakfast. Even when booking Alan was noticably more friendly than many I spoke to (although the YMCA were very helpful and happy it has to be said), and this friendly approach continued throughout my short stay. It will be the first place I try when returning.

We can thoroughly recommend this guest house. The location is central yet quiet, and near the beach! The rooms are clean, bright and well decorated. The bed was comfortable - Room 1 - and there was plenty of storage. The breakfast was always hot, fresh, plentiful and served by our charming host Alan who worked hard to ensure everyone was happy. We visited with our friends on this occassion but would definetely come back to this hotel when we visit beautiful Swanage again. Thank you Alan for the perfect stay.

Room Tip: All the rooms look very nice but room one - doubkle and single bed - at the front is large and sunn...

My friend and I recently stayed at caythorpe house for a long weekend. Alan was there to meet us and always makes us feel soo at home. We had stayed in the family room before and we thought it was nice then. The room had been recently done up so we were very spoilt and thought it was lovely. One of our friends unfortunately could not make it and Alan kindly didn't charge us which we really appreciated. It's the little things that mean a lot. Ålan's breakfasts are always something to look forward to as well! We have already booked to come back again with our other halves in August. Can't wait!

We stayed at the Caythorpe for 2 nights and had a lovely stay. The owner was very friendly and helpful when we asked about walks from Swanage. Also some great recommendations on where to eat. The room was clean and tidy with all you need, and very roomy Bed was not the most comfortable but definitely did the job. Biggest perk was onsite parking and location (very close to centre and beach). We felt was got value for money and it was nice to see a B&B not charging hotel prices!

Thanks for the very positive review. I'm pleased that you felt we offered value for money - we certainly try. I've taken own board your comments about the bed and we plan to improve these during our winter revamp. We feel that our location is peerless offering flat and close proximity to the beach and town centre. With public parking running at £8.50 a day - our on-site parking is always appreciated. Looking forward to seeing you again. Alan.
