If you are looking for a break in beautiful Swanage then look no further. Clare House is ideally located we parked the car on arrival and only returned when we had to leave. Rooms a good size with everything we needed, clean and well maintained. Choice at breakfast was overwhelming and ate far too much but kept me going all day! Diane and Alan made us very welcome a lovely relaxing stay.

Another fantastic and relaxing stay at Clare House in August.
Clare House made our 3 night stay very special and the breakfasts were excellent as always. Diane and Alan are the perfect hosts and we are looking forward to going back next year (if not before).

We stayed at Clare House for 5 nights at August BH. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and provided everything we needed. Breakfast was exceptional, thoroughly enjoyable with lots of choices. Alan & Diane were courteous and helpful and every aspect is to a high standard. Thank you.

Clare house is more than worth a visit ,breakfast menu is fantastic with a choice from cereal to a full English which myself and my wife had and it was excellent ,the bed was so comfortable it was hard to get out of it in the morning.parking is all good because its free.the room was lovely and clean with clean towels everyday and also a robe with slippers if you needed them,small fridge in the room was very handy for milk ,water etc. now the most important part of my review are the hosts Diane and Alan they make you feel so welcome and at home its like you have known them for years , so easy to talk to and very helpful and would go back at the drop of a hat. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for 1 night, the service was incredible. The room was spacious and clean, there was a mini fridge and tea and coffee facilities in the room. In the bathroom there were dressing gowns and slippers available as well as various toiletries.
The breakfast was superb, you could pre-order the night before and there was a really good selection of cooked options. In addition to the cooked breakfast there were cereals, toast, fruit and fruit juices. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.
