“The views from the apartment was amazing”
Reviewed 3 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

The location of the apartment was amazing with the sea and bay view. The shops, pubs,and beach was just a few minutes away. The apartment was immaculately clean and the owner had thought of everything to make your stay a relaxing one. The secure parking space was a great help too. Would love to go back next year.

“The Best Apartment in Swanage”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

If you've ever wanted to go to Swanage, don't hesitate to book this apartment. The views are absolutely amazing. Close to the shops and close to the beach. Immaculately clean and well equipped. A really lovely apartment to unwind and re-charge your batteries.

“Great location”
Reviewed 8 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

An ideal apartment in a great location a few feet from the sea and harbour. Central to the town which has plenty of cafe/restaurants and pubs most of which have live music at the weekend. We usually take our bikes and explore Corfe, Wareham, Studland and Poole. For nostalgia visit the railway station at take a train to Corfe Castle.

“Our second visit was as memorable as the first.”
Reviewed 2 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The location and views are wonderful. Being close to all the amenities that Swanage offers meant that it was not necessary to use the car unless we wanted to travel futher. Which we did on occasions.
The secure parking space is a bonus.
The accommodation is excellent.
Already thinking about our third visit.

“Stunning Sea Views at the Heart of Swanage”
Reviewed 20 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The apartment is so close to the sea it's like being on board a yacht. The dining area bay window overlooks the quay and Victorian style pier while the lounge area overlooks the beach. The well equipped kitchen is conveniently off the lounge/dining area which adds to the boat like feeling. It was lovely to hear the sea at night washing against the quay from the main bedroom. The apartment is spacious and well appointed. We holidayed at the start of this summer's heat wave so our stay was coloured by the rosy glow of the sun.

There is so much to see and do in Swanage. One evening we saw Romeo and Juliet performed at the open air theatre which is visible from the dining window. We took the steam train to Corfe Castle, went on a guided town tour/talk led by Stewart Borritt starting at the Heritage Centre, saw Man of Steel at the Mowlem theatre and went to an entertaining evening of folk music. If you drive take your own sun chairs because the beach is only 5 minutes walk from the apartment. The beach has such soft sand - it is glorious and safe for children. There are plenty of good restaurants around – try the dressed crab from the seafood restaurant close by the apartment.

Once at the apartment you may not need to use your car again until you go home because it is so central.

“Perfect English seaside holiday.”
Reviewed 9 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Quayside Court is ideally set right adjacent to the beach. It's just a few steps to the sands and with safe secure parking at the property what could be better than to leave the car parked where it is and to enjoy all the local amenities on foot. Everything is in easy reach: shops, restaurants, the Swanage steam railway and of course the beach.
The accommodation was ideal for the 5 of us (my wife, myself, our daughter, son-in-law and grandson). Everything was clean and tidy for our arrival; the kitchen although small was well equipped and everything was clean and to hand.
Bedroom space was good and there was plenty of storage for the clothes and our cases. The beds were comfortable and mattresses neither too soft nor too hard although this will naturally be subject to individual preference.
The views from the living/dining area are stunning, there is always something to see going on and if you are awake really early in the summer months the sunrises across the bay are worth it alone.
We enjoyed our stay in Swanage and will return again as well as recommend to friends.
There is a superb Italian restaurant just around the corner and fish and chips are available at the end of the road with a choice of vendors.
All in all a perfect venue for the typical English seaside holiday.

“Best holiday in years”

My wife and I are getting on a bit now and have lost count of the number of holiday homes we’ve hired over the years. Some have been brilliant whilst others have been a disgrace. None, though, were as well situated as the flat we stayed in last week at Quayside Court In Swanage. With a front door that’s just feet from the waters edge and shops and restaurants literally just a stone throw away, there’s no need to use the car once you’ve arrived. No2 was plush and comfortable with everything except towels and bed-linen provided. Swanage is a lovely town and we enjoyed the best holiday we’ve had in years.
