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.

Everything we needed and more

  • 5 of 5

The Annex provided we three jazz fans with a great base for the weekend of the Swanage Jazz Festival. It is extremely well equipped, was spotlessly clean when we arrived and first impressions when we opened the door was how stylish the place looked. Very comfortable beds, the parking spot right outside was a bonus as once we had arrived we left the car there for the duration.

I was not impressed with the Owners Direct service though. About three weeks before we left I had an email with details of the app - not much good to me as I don't have a smart phone - and a 'click on the link below' to access information. There was no link. The day before leaving I contacted the owner for the address and key details as I hadn't heard anything further - and she came back to me immediately with all the information I needed, so that was fine. The 'welcome to Swanage' email which did have the access link and presumably all the details about keys, address etc came to my computer (at home) on the evening of the day we'd already checked in. Too late to be of any use.

So in summary: the property is great, do book it and have a lovely stay. But Owners Direct were useless to us.

The Annex, well equipped and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our 2 week stay started with the very hot weather, and we made full use of the double doors leading into the garden area for the cool air. Although the weather changed for week 2 we managed to go out and about every day using public transport, cheating on the way home by getting a taxi from the station for £3. (we try not to use the car when away). The short walk to the well stocked Off Licence saved a lot of messing about shopping in the town. We really had a great holiday. Thank you Kerry and Dene
