We just had four nights in this delightful guest house where Bob and Tom made us very welcome. Our bedroom was large and the beds extremely comfortable. It was good to have two armchairs in the room where we could relax. The breakfasts and dinners were very good and the service excellent. There is a large lounge with plenty of...

We stayed in room 2 for three nights and found it very well appointed with everything you needed including tissues, soaps etc. Restful view from the bay window whilst having a pot of tea. The breakfast menu was quite comprehensive and good quality. The evening meal was excellent with 4 courses and at £23 was very good value. Service at...

A lovely place to stay. Situated in a quiet location, and only a short walk to sea front and town centre. Hosts Tom and Bob were very welcoming and as it was our first trip to Swanage Bob was very helpful with local information. Room was very nice and bed very comfortable. Will go back again

We have stayed in quite a few B&B's over the years and this is by far one of the best, nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is lovely, you don't just get the standard fry -up, you get a choice of what you would like on your breakfast, how you like your eggs, you can even have smoked haddock with...

It's great to hear you enjoyed your stay - and it was a pleasure to meet you. You're right about the car park, it's manageable but without too much room to spare! However, there is a space for each guest room, and also unrestricted parking for cars on the road, which guests often make use of for short stays.

This is the best place we have ever stayed. Bob and Tom have thought of everything. First the really warm welcome with tea in the comfy lounge. Then the super rooms (especially recommend room 2, which is very large and attractive, with lovely views of the palms and garden leading towards the sea). The rooms are really well-equipped, far beyond...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Glenlee is a friendly, well run guest house where you can be sure of a warm welcome and a relaxed, peaceful stay. It is a short, level walking distance from Swanage's award-winning beach and town centre. We have a 4-star Silver Award rating from Visit England and facilities include a private car park, free Wi-Fi throughout the building, an alcohol licence and a large guest lounge in which to relax, chat, read, play games including darts, browse the comprehensive tourist information, gaze out over the front lawn towards Beach Gardens or simply enjoy a drink or sandwich. In warm weather guests enjoy relaxing, perhaps with a drink, in the loveseats on the south-facing patio or in the cosy sun porch, their experience enhanced by the scent of fragrant roses in our pretty front garden. We offer evening meals in summer months and during selected weeks throughout the season. Books, magazines and newspapers are available for guests to enjoy during their holiday and a personal daily paper can be ordered on request. All rooms are en suite, tastefully decorated and have fresh flowers, high-definition Freeview smart TVs (able to access catch-up services such as BBC iPlayer), DAB radios and hot drink-making facilities with delicious biscuits. At Glenlee we try hard to ensure guests have absolutely everything they need for the perfect break. English and German language spoken. ... more   less
