Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at this property and wont be our last.

I highly recommend a stay here you wont be disappointed it is close to Swanage beaches and town just a 5 minute walk away and the property itself is of a very high standard very clean and fresh it has its own parking space which is a real bonus not to mention great landlords and all the things you might find you need in your own home for a comfy stay.

Second time at the Annex and hopefully not our last. Situated in a quiet street with off road parking - a real bonus with parking being at a premium.

Clean, well laid-out, well-equipped. Very good value

  • 5 of 5

We arrived by train & bus, and found the property perfect for our needs. Ten minutes walk to the station, 15 minutes to town. Having visited Swanage before, we knew what to expect - an old-style seaside town with plenty to see and do. Many good walks (some a bit steep, but the wife was very happy to take the bus and wait for me at the top).

I was fascinated by the fundraising idea for the pier - sponsor a plank! We'll be doing just that - watch out for one saying simply "Janet & John, 2017"! Lots of very good food... we told ourselves that it didn't matter, because we were "walking it off". A week wasn't long enough to do everything, so we'll probably be back in a couple of years.

Modern, comfortable accomodation within easy wakling distance of the town and it's amenities

  • 5 of 5

An enjoyable visit to this lovely English seaside town with it's independent shops, accessible transport links to nearby Bournemouth and Dorchester. A bonus is a preserved steam railway to Corfe Castle through the Purbeck peninsular. The accommodation is overseen by a friendly sociable owner who will happily give helps when required.

A home-from-home family experience in sunny Swanage

  • 5 of 5

The first thing we noticed about Princess Road is that, like most of Swanage, it's a parking nightmare with cars lining both sides of a fairly narrow street. However, we needn't have worried - the property owners have this situation well-covered and, despite heading-out on all but one of our 7 days in-residence, we had a space for our rental vehicle at the front of The Annex every time.

Inside the accommodation was of a very good standard with modern fittings and furnishings - loads of the very best from IKEA, John Lewis and the like. The outside space to the side of the property also turned-out to be much bigger than we expected and was a lovely place to sit with a glass of wine in the evening. Being a 10-minute walk from the start of the main Town, the street was also reasonably quiet throughout the night most nights.

Another big-scorer on our list was the never-ending supply of hot water for the upstairs shower which, although not at a pressure that would remove your skin, was just about right for the whole family to enjoy. Upstairs and downstairs loos are also a major benefit during the morning rush on the bathroom facilities.

To bring a balance to our review, the only thing that scored anything less than impressive was the seating configuration. Unless you're 5 foot tall or under, the only place we reckon you'll be comfortably able to put your feet up is on the beds - the 2 sofas in the front room being too small for a sprawl, there being no bath and the outside space being suited only for the table/chairs that are provided. Happily, we had great weather during our stay, so there was plenty of time lying on Studland Beach as compensation!

Overall and having tried - and been disappointed with - The Grand Hotel, The Purbeck House Hotel (twice!) and Sandford Park (never - never ever - again!), we reckon this was about as close to ideal as we could hope for. Close to the Town Centre and a 2-bedroom configuration - one large and one small double - perfect for our needs.
