We booked through Airbnb and were very pleased that the Southover B & B lived up to expectations, stunning tranquil location, super room with views over the countryside. The huge bathroom with walk in shower and spa bath was a super treat after lots of walking along the coastal path to name but a few. Our hosts provided an excellent...

Took Mom to Swanage for birthday long weekend. Arrived at Southover and was greeted by Janice. Stayed in the family suite which was perfect for us. Crisp linen and lovely bathroom. Lovely and quiet right at Durlston Park. Janice baked Mom a lovely Birthday cake and left it for us as a surprise. Breakfast was delicious, plenty of choice and...

My fiancée and I visited Southover Bed and Breakfast with our 2 children (ages 11 and 2) at the end of August for a 3 night stay. Janice and Andrew immediately made us feel welcome and relaxed. We stayed in the family suite which was perfectly equipped, very clean and homely. Our bed was the most comfortable I have ever...

Janice and Andrew obviously enjoy an active life in Swanage and have opened up their relaxed home so that others may enjoy all the area has to offer.We really relaxed in the luxury twin and much appreciated the use of small kitchen nearby. The beds were very comfortable and bathroom large and had good shower and spa bath. The tasty...

Spacious room, the largest we have ever stayed in while at a B&B in Swanage. Friendly welcome and excellent breakfasts. We have a five month old daughter and this was our first trip to a B&B since her arrival. The room was plenty large enough and we enjoyed access to a simple kitchenette with microwave,fridge, induction hob and sink. This...

We found it fairly easily by following the sat nav, it's down an unmettaled road which is not a problem, although we did drive past it first as we weren't expecting that. There is no B and B sign but easy to find once you're in the correct road. The double room was lovely and had our own bathroom down...

We arrived at 4pm (an hour after check in at 3pm) but it felt as though they weren't expecting us. We had requested a cot & this was itemised on our booking confirmation but there was no cot in our room when we arrived. When the cot was found we had to put this up. We were asked if we...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am sorry that you were disappointed with your stay. You did not book directly with us, but via an online travel agent, who, although they apparently confirmed to you that a cot would be supplied, did not pass your request on to us. Had they done so, I would...

This is my second stay here. I can thoroughly recommend it. Superb breakfast, (the eggs are from the hens in the garden). Rooms are extremely comfortable. You will get a very warm and friendly welcome. 6 star rating.

We had an amazing time staying at Southover - a Bed and Breakfast that offers that little bit more ! Hence, we could come and go, making hot drinks and having a warm jacuzzi bath when the weather failed to please. We love the great outdoors, and the owners went to great lengths to make sure that we were well...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Southover is a modern home, with every luxury you could wish for, built in traditional Purbeck stone and located in a semi-rural setting on the edge of a lively seaside town. Start your day with a delicious breakfast of top-quality local produce, then choose from the many leisure opportunities which Swanage and the Isle of Purbeck offer. After a busy day of swimming, walking or sight-seeing, come back to tea and home-baked biscuits then relax in your spa bath, or take a long, hot shower, before sampling the great range of pubs and restaurants only ten minutes walk away in the town centre. ... more   less
