There was a lovely sitting area in a bay window overlooking the park and tennis courts. It was only a few minutes walk to the sea, and...

My partner and I stayed here for one night as a stopover after visiting Lulworth Cove en route to see family. We had a very warm welcome from Bob before being shown to our extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean room. There was roomy off road parking for our Transporter van and a fantastic newly renovated bathroom (nice hot shower!). We...

Spent a few days here with some good friends. Bob, Tom and Martin could not have made us more welcome or done more to make our stay really enjoyable.

This is the loviest GuestHouse I have stayed. The cleanliness of the room and toilet is commendable. Location is excellent as it is of close proximity to our festival hub. Food was good. If we do return to Dorset next year this will be the place to stay again. Thank you Bob, Tom and Martin for the fabulous service.

Your family group was most welcome and it was good to meet you all. Glad the wedding went well. As long as we know in advance it's usually not a problem to get some of the rooms ready early so guests can change for a wedding, for example, or to enjoy more of their time here. Happy to hear you...

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.
