Our 55th wedding anniversary trip to Swanage.
Enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Rookery. Everyone very friendly and helpful and we will definitely hope to stay there again when in need of a break to Swanage. Our room was very comfortable and roomy and beds really comfy and the breakfast was delicious and enough to last us all day.

Great B&B would definitely recommend
Great location. The food was good, bed comfortable, clean and tidy quiet room. The only negative was the flowery wallpaper but that was just personnel taste.
