Comfortable but small
The room was not as booked the owner suggested booking site was in error.
Clean, comfortable bed and well presented , because it was an attic room the ceilings were slanted and low, kept banging my head!. Bathroom well furnished although with no headroom
the shower couldn't be used as I could only kneel stand down in the bath. A price reduction would be fair for this attic room. Chose not to have breakfast but probably would have if inclusive.
Overall i felt cost was high for this room although in general prices seem to be high in the area.
Would go back again
Lovely hosts, great location and fab breakfasts
3 day anniversary break
A great B&B.
Breakfast - quality, variety and quantity all fantastic and reflecting their use of produce from local organic farm. Also great homemade cakes that they put in bags to take out for the day - I'm still recovering from the chocolate brownie. Service and care also excellent - having seen anniversary cards in our room, we came down to breakfast the next day to find red hearts scattered across it, a candle and some celebrations. Would definitely return there.
brilliant location, great service very clean, great owners.
Great place to stay
Absolutely loved my stay and will be booking again next time I'm in Swanage.
I was down for a few days fishing and wanted good accommodation close to the sea. This was perfect as it's only a few minutes walk to the sea, shops, pubs and restaurants. Also there's free parking outside the guesthouse which is very handy. Room and breakfast were great and such a friendly welcome from the owners. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
Rivendell Guest House
Really enjoyed our stay, very friendly couple.
nothing was any trouble. would recommend to others and if that way again would stay again.
Rivendell is a beautiful, characterful B&B.
Room was immaculate and nicely decorated. Breakfast was amazing. Quality of produce was excellent but dare I say there was too much of it!. Did not want for anything. Owners very friendly and nothing too much trouble.
Full of character
Our stay was pleasant and enjoyable, the food was excellent, the room was top class
Very Good but not Great
Priced at middle to lower end was great value good smallish room with nice en suite, over crowded by needless cushions, fake flowers & pictures made room feel smaller than it was.
Very friendly proprietors but the 16:00 earliest checkin was a real pain & for that reason we wouldn't stay again. If this is not a problem then l would recommend. We didn't have breakfast.
good b and b
Very pleasant stay.
