We had the pleasure of staying at Caythorpe House the weekend 15th & 16th August and would utterly recommend to anyone else who is looking to a guest house in an excellent central but quite location in Swanage, we received a friendly welcome and a few pointers of where to go and what to see on arrival.

The room was very clean well decorated and spacious with everything you would hope from a quality guest house

Before our visit we had to make a small change to our booking which was dealt with in a friendly and effective manor over email great customer service!

Looking forward to making another trip to Caythorpe House in the future

Room Tip: We stayed in room four which was a family room although there was only two of us, it was clean and s...

Only a minute walk to the beach and less than five minute walk to the restaurants and pubs in the town centre. Our room had a lovely sea view and was nicely decorated. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. The service was quick at breakfast, and was good quality food.

This review is a little bit late, stayed at the end of June. Caythorpe is a lovely guest house. It's in a great location , 5 mins walk to the lovely beach and 10 mins to the little town. It also has its own car park. The rooms are lovely and clean. The breakfast is the biggest and the best we have ever had, in any guest house. The owner was very welcoming and friendly. We will be definitely returning soon.

We have had many summer holidays at this well situated Guest House run by Alan. He is a very friendly and helpful person and nothing is too much trouble. The guest house has off road parking and is very near the beach and shops. The rooms are well furbished well equipped and clean. The breakfast can be full or tailor made. We have always found the price very good.

We arrived early and asked if we could leave the car,we were taken in booked in and shown up to our room very efficient all went very smooth we were pleased to be sorted out so quickly and a car parking space always a bonus
Our room was fine en suite family room with a double and two bunks all very clean and everything we wanted
The house is very close to the town and beach 10 mins walk and I can not walk quickly so that was great for us
Breakfast again was a very efficient service with no one having to wait very long there was a good choice of cereal and juice and the full English or any parts of it were very good so yes could recommend this bed and breakfast in the very lovely swanage

Our second family stay earlier this summer at this lovely, well-situated guest house run by Alan, a friendly and very hospitable, gentleman was a joy. The weather during our stay was also brilliant. The rooms were comfortable, clean and well-equipped after recent well-planned refurbishment and breakfast was wel l prepared and tailored to our individual tastes. We will definitely be staying there again, whether to explore the local countryside or just to relax! Prices are also very reasonable. Thanks Alan and kitchen backing!

Room Tip: Corner rooms have good sea views.
