Beautiful B&B, tidy, clean, lovely decor, nice en suite with great use of space. Very friendly and polite owners. Superb location with a 5 minute walk to the town and water and a short drive to neighbouring villages.
Highly recommend

Stayed for one night - lovely property, great welcome from the owners. Convenient location, close to station and shops. The room was small (single) but had everything you need and more. Great shower and comfortable bed. Will certainly stay again. Thanks!

We stayed 1 night at the Rivendell but could have stayed more, we were moving on quickly to poole. The location could not have been bettter for the swanage railway for Corfe castle,ask for room at the back and you can here the whistles from the steam trains, well decorated rooms and communication from Kevin the propriotor was excellent. Very clean and superb decor. no car parking but you can park in a little car park near the back of the police station. Thank you Kevin, sorry forgot your wifes name but understand its your creative immagination for the bedroom schemes. well done and thanks Martin and Sharon

Very welcoming and helpful lovely place spotlessly clean and lots of little thoughtful touches in the room like a towel to use if your a spray tan addict and a great idea, a bottle opener! The breakfast was really top notch, couldn't fault it and so much choice the full breakfast was Huge my husband said its one of the top breakfast he had at a b & b ... And he's been to many. Really easy to get into town as only a few mins walk and your in town or on the beach would go again and Would highly recommend it .

A comfortable B&B near the centre of Swanage - handy for railway/bus stations with street parking available close by.

The friendly owners maintain a high standard of cleanliness etc and cook a good breakfast to order - what's not to like ?

Room Tip: If you are noise sensitive ask for a room at the back

My sister and I have just returned from 2 nights at Rivendell Guest House. We had a fantastic stay with Lyn and Kevin who were fab Hosts. Our room was clean and very comfortable with lots of tea, coffee and biscuits. The bathroom was small but very clean and a great shower. The beds were extremely comfortable with plenty of storage space for clothes ect. The two breakfasts we had were delicious, and big selection of fresh fruit, yogurt home made muesli. There were home made jams, chocolate brownies and divine scones. The cooked breakfasts were splendid. Guest could also use a very comfortable lounge. All in all I would definately stay here again. A great little find. Thank you Lyn and Kevin.

The room was very clean and comfortable and we really enjoyed our stay. Kevin and Lyn were very friendly and welcoming and have gone the extra mile to make sure that their guests are happy. We'd certainly come back again without hesitation.
