Hosts were extremely welcoming. Room was extremely high quality with all the nice touches of bathrobes, slippers etc and no shortage of little extras. Right near the sea front so easy access to everything. Breakfast was simply superb!!! Proper coffee available and a great selection of cold and hot foods for breakfast. Could easily have lingered an hour or so...

We loved our stay here. The room was lovely & very spacious, with a lot of extra touches. We especially loved the silent fridge. The breakfast was great, freshly cooked and with a good choice. Location is brilliant too, very close to town. We've stayed in a number of B&Bs in Swanage & Clare House is the best so far.

Hi Mr & Mrs Smith!!!! It was an unexpected visit, but I am glad we were able to restore your faith in B&B owners. It was their loss, you were a delightful couple. I do hope we will see you again. Dianne

Dianne is a very welcoming host, the room was really comfortable, spotlessly clean with large windows. The bathroom was equally spotless. Breakfast was superb, plentiful with lots of choice. I'd definitely recommend staying here and look forward to a return visit.

Had a room at the top of the house. Nice comfortable bed. Good sized and equipped bathroom. Even though it was full the weekend we stayed we never heard other guests. Did hear a few drunks going home outside around 1 in the morning but you get that anywhere. Room had a TV (I think - never used it) and...

Hello, thank you for taking the time to review Clare House so favourably, your room did indeed have a TV, you must have been too busy having fun to watch it. Thank you for giving the information re the car park which is only £1.00 overnight and it is two minutes away, because parking can be problematic at times, although...

We had a wonderful stay at Clare House over the Easter weekend. Dianne couldn't have been more welcoming and showed us to our lovely room which was immaculately clean, nicely decorated and had robes, slippers and bathroom products. There was a silent running mini fridge stocked with water and my own bottle of milk when I requested it. There was...

We were met at the door with the warmest of welcomes and shown to our room. The room was beautifully decorated with care and luxury. Everything had been thoughtfully provided, from robes, slippers to luxury bathroom products, a silent running mini fridge and very useful USB port charging device.

We are less than 200 metres from the award winning beach and the 2012 pier of the year, with town centre restaurants and bars only a few minutes walk. We are also only a few minutes from newly refurbished Durlston Country Park and the stunning clifftop walks. For breakfast we prefer to use Homemade, locally-sourced or Fairtrade produce. ... more   less
