"no complaints"
Everything excellent from the location, room, bed and breakfast. A great deal of thought has gone into every detail.The room had everything including a very large bed, fridge, dressing gowns and slippers!
The breakfast matched the accommodation. Very tasty and very plentiful served by a very friendly lady who couldn't do enough for us. Read less

Dislikes:
We thought the check in time was a bit late.
Response from Clare House:
Hi Steve, thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review. Our check-in time is 4.00pm simply because we don't usually get finished cleaning rooms etc. until 12.30-1.00pm. We then spend the next three hours doing any shopping, and personal things that we may have to do. I think you willl find most guest houses are 4.00-4.30pm check in. I do hope we wll see you both again.

Welcome to one of the finest small luxury establishments on the Isle of Purbeck, and the best choice for your stay in Swanage.

Clare House is a five-star guest house set in one of Swanage's historic buildings. First built in 1875 to house the town's indoor market, the building still displays some of the original features. Located just off the High Street, Clare House is ideally placed for those wishing to spend time on the beach, pier, restaurants or bars are that are all within a few minutes walk

The standard of accommodation is what you would expect from a 5-star, Gold Award winning guest house.

Breakfast is an experience not to be missed. Using, where possible, local produce you will be able to savour freshly cooked food served in the elegant dining room. Choose from an extensive menu of options that include the iconic English Breakfast, a vegetarian option, smoked salmon, freshly baked bread and muffins, American style pancakes and eggs cooked just how you like them. A wide range of teas, coffees and fruit juices are all available to accompany your meal. If you have any dietary requirements i.e. gluten free etc, please let us know before you arrive and we will do our utmost to accommodate you.

Offering the highest standards of accommodation and service, Clare House is perfectly situated to serve as a haven from where you can explore Swanage and the surrounding countryside.

And explore you must, for there is much to experience: the awe-inspiring Jurassic Coast, the Arne Nature Reserve, Durlston Country Park, the Swanage Steam Railway, Corfe Castle and the magnificent countryside walks and scenic drives to visit typical Dorset Villages. Further afield the Tank Museum at Bovington and Monkey World are within a short drive.
