Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the questions we get asked most by our guests.  If your question is not one of them, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Is there any parking?

As we are located in the centre of town, we do not have our own car-park, however there is free unrestricted parking along one side of Eldon Terrace which is a cul-du-sac.


Is it far to find an eatery?

There are many excellent cafes, bakeries, pubs and restaurants in Swanage, all within a few minutes short walk.

Do you take pets?

Although we are animal lovers, we regret for the comfort of all guests, we cannot accommodate pets.


What time is check-in?

We are open for guests to check-in from 3.00pm.


What time is check-out?

We require rooms to be vacated by 10.30am in order to allow us time to restore them to their full glory for the next guests.

How much is the Ferry?

The Sandbanks/Studland Car Ferry toll is currently £4.50 each way for a normal size car.  You simply turn up and drive on.  Queues can be lengthy during good weather. The Ferry leaves every 20 minutes, but more frequently during peak season. Visit for a timetable, directions and more details.
