Likes:
The location is central to everything in Swanage with the beach a minutes walk away. Would recommend the Italian restaurant nearby, the best pizzas ever, and 'The Canteen'.
Dislikes:
The only minor (and it is minor as we were not in our room much) thing was the TV signal which was poor and made watching anything near impossible.

Likes:
Taunton House is very convenient for enjoying the delights that Swanage has to offer.
Dislikes:
Taunton House exudes faded elegance and the floor boards echo any movement in any of the close proximity bedrooms. Annie, the Hostess is very friendly but needs some additional staff.

It is situated about one minute from the centre of town, local restaurants and pubs and of course the sea and award winning sandy beaches. A range of outdoor activities including swimming, scuba diving, walking in the Purbeck Hills, golf and horse riding are close at hand. It has its own private car at the rear of the property so your car will be safe in the middle of town. It also has a small courtyard garden. The current owners, Marios and Annie Lambis, have lived for many years in the Mediterranean and so the food and the house has a special Mediterranean feel.

All food is sourced using the highest quality produce from local suppliers. It is freshly cooked to order and offers a variety of choices. This can include:
- a freshly cooked full English breakfast, using produce from local farms
- a continental breakfast with a variety of fine cheeses, hams and sausages, breads and preserves
- an all in one "Annie's special Mediterranean omelette"
- a vegetarian menu
- fair-trade teas and coffees
- a selection of homemade breads
- a selection of cereals and fresh fruit juices
- fresh fruit salads to die for

The one thing we can promise you is excellent, locally sourced food, cooked to a very high standard.

The B&B has a non smoking policy for all guests
