We just came back from another great stay at Rivendell. Kevin, Lyn and Rachel make us so comfortable and welcome. It is a real home from home (except their breakfasts are much better than they are here)!

Thank you. We will be back again soon x

Had a wonderful nights stay with Kevin and Lyn.
The room was excellent, clean and well maintained, all one could ask for.
Extra coffee, tea, biscuits etc available if needed.
There was use of a lounge and if we had stayed another few nights we would have used it.
As for the breakfast....excellent with a wide choice with some of the best home made scones and jams we have had.
Deffo recommend to others.

What a lovely place to stay and what a great discovery! We stayed at this guest house for three nights and it was just perfect. Our hosts were so friendly and attentive, and the place is so very cosy - it's a real home away from home and we didn't want to leave.
Our room was traditional and stylish, the bed was huge and so comfortable! We both slept like logs, even with the church bells across the way. The bathroom was new and spotless and the shower was excellent. Tea, coffee and hot chocolate were supplied, along with things like wine glasses and nice big towels.
Breakfast was all home-made from local foods and was plentiful and delicious. My boyfriend particularly liked the home-made granola. We were also given scones and muffins to take with us for elevenses - what a lovely touch.
Also there is a very short walk into the town and to the beach. The perfect place for a Swanage holiday.

Our first stay at this lovely B&B, booked very last minute for New Years eve. Kevin and Lyn are the perfect hosts - nothing was too much trouble. As previous reviews, the breakfast set us up for the day with plenty of choice from the menu. The rooms are more than adequate, clean and comfortable, complete with a bright, clean en-suite. Five minutes walk from the steam train station and ten minutes stroll through the town to the seafront. Perfect.

Stayed recently for two nights over the NYE 2013-14 period. Could not have been more satisfied. Room was clean, comfortable and well furnished. Kevin and Lynn were very welcoming. Great location five minuets walk from the sea front. Breakfast was a real highlight, one of if not the best English breakfasts we have ever had! Highly recommended.
