My son and I stayed for two nights the last weekend in October. The hotel is located 5 minutes from the beach, the train and bus station are just across the road as is the Co-op. An added benefit is the off road parking as I would think that in the summer parking is hard to find. The room was... More

If you've never visited Swanage before then make sure you get accommodation with parking - this is the main reason we choose Firswood guest house. From the moment we arrived we were treated with the warmth of friendship and to a beautiful, clean and relaxing bedroom. We had a choice of a shower or bath on suite which was a... More

My partner and I have stayed in this guest house a couple of times now; it's a great crash pad for the town, and is directly opposite Swanage Railway Station (where you can ride the steam train to Corfe). It's a minutes' walk into town, and you can be on the beach in 5 minutes. The pier is accessible in... More

We stayed here for a long weekend during the Folk Festival. Firswood is well positioned for all the main attractions. Our room was clean and tidy and very good value for money. Doesn't take cards but there's an ATM 50m away so that is little hardship. Friendly owners who were happy to chat. There were plenty of tourist leaflets about... More

Stayed here for a week and really enjoyed our stay. Everywhere was clean and tidy and breakfast was good. Would have prefered cereals to have been decantered into "tupperware" boxes rather than left in original boxes. Owner seemed a little reserved at first but as week progressed got a lot more chatty. I had room 3 which was very big... More

Well, we turned up in Swanage on impulse on the bank holiday weekend and took our chances. We saw a board which said 'vacancies' outside Firswood and promptly knocked on the door. We were met by the proprietor who told us that she did indeed have the accommodation we required but that she didn't take debit or credit cards..... We... More

I stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of August, the B&B is in a fantastic location - just across the road from the station. The room had a very 'cosy cottage' feel to it and was of a good size. The bathroom is more than a little on the small side and had a sliding door that didn't... More
