Really impressed

“Allnatt Stop & Stay really helped me out last minute when I was let down by another local b&b.

Whenever I visit Swanage I will always go back Allnatt as the accommodation, bathrooms and use of the kitchen was spot on. Actually making your own breakfast was hassle free and all facilities were great for our party of 7, that included a 3month old, 2yr & 7yr & a stroppy 18- who got his own room!”
