6 Cauldon Avenue
Tel: 01929 425794
The Glenlee is a friendly 4-star Silver Award guest house offering evening meals, with its own car park and free Wi-Fi. The attractive 1930s detached house is set in a peaceful location on the Jurassic Coast overlooking putting greens. Swanage's award-winning beach is only a five-minute walk away while the town centre is just a ten-minute stroll along the promenade. We pride ourselves on our home-cooked food made from local produce. Breakfast includes a choice of cereals, juices, yoghurt and fruit salad, plus your choice of cooked breakfast (with vegetarian and vegan options on request) followed by toast and home-made preserves. Evening meals pre-booked are available at 6.30pm daily except Wednesdays. The spacious guest lounge is ideal for relaxation, reading, meeting friends, playing games or enjoying a pre- or post-dinner drink. Glass doors from the cosy sun porch open onto the south-facing patio and garden. As well as our own car park there's also unrestricted parking on the road opposite.

As soon as we arrived it was clear how nice it was. Bob was more than helpful showing us around and where everything was. The room was excellent. Nice d├ęcor, welcoming, warm, comfortable, everything we needed. The breakfast was great as well.

Tips:

Harlee's fish restaurant in the town. The Swanage railway. Corfe Castle. Old Harry Rocks. Lulworth Cove.

We were made very welcome and the breakfast was enough to keep us going for most of the day.

Tips:

Lots of good restaurants in Swanage with several first class seafood places. Most town-centre pubs have a wide selection of locally brewed ciders. There are some excellent walks in the area and beautiful scenery. Also a well known steam railway with a station near the town centre.

This Guest House was one of the best I have ever stayed in, the attention to detail in the room was amazing, and nothing was too much trouble.

Tips:

We went on a trip on the steam train which was good, next time we stay we want to visit Poole harbor and go across to brownsea island. I stayed in Swanage regularly many years ago and was impressed that many of the shops were still there.

An excellent stay, the guest and welcome could not be faulted. Nothing was to much trouble for our hosts. Would certainly stay again and would encourage others too

Tips:

Beach a short walk from guest house, a variety of restaurants/pubs in town Heritage railway nearby, and local buses serve the coast towns.

Hosts - Bob and Tom very welcoming from the moment of arrival to departure. Guest house decor in traditional style, respecting past guests and offering comfortable accommodation. One small point, which has been put into sharper focus having returned home and slept in our own bed, quilts would be so much more comfortable than sheets! Myself and my wife - Jo - both remarked to each other that the last time we could remember being 'sealed' inside an envelope of sheets was as children! Save yourselves some time and effort and use quilts covers... All in all a really enjoyable stay and looking to return at some point. Graham and Jo.

Tips:

Take a ride on the Swanage to Corfe steam railway, and if you can, choose a train serving a meal. Not cheap, but an experience to look back on and share with friends. As always, a walk up and around Durlston, maybe up through the woods to the recently refurbished Durlston cafe and visitor centre with fantastic views over the bay and sea is a way of burning off the calories and feasting the eyes!
