We stayed for 3 nights with our aged parents - the apartment was perfect for them being level access and easy to keep clean. Nicely decorated in the main and comfortable beds.
Unfortunately, there were signs of damp (mould) in the bathrooms and the hall cupboard smelled strongly of damp but this did not affect our enjoyment of the few days away.
Mum & Dad thought it was fantastic and that was the aim therefore we may book again next year for a longer break.

“nice apartment but not toddler friendly”
Reviewed 18 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

person found this review helpful

Location of this apartment is great. As others have said it is in a nice quiet area but only short walk to beach and Swanage town. Beaches are really good here too. However, we have 2 little ones - a 3 month old and 21 month old and it was a nightmare with the toddler as there are too many things at low level and left out that we had to quickly go round everywhere and move things. There are items like CDs, a radio and games that are obviously left for guests to enjoy but for a toddler are just a pain and meant we had to shut off certain rooms which left only a very small area for our toddler to be able to play. There is also no cot available which didn't bother us too much as we can bring our own but it is unusual these days for one not to be available.

“Lovely convenient and quiet location”
Reviewed 8 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The best thing about the apartment was its location. The road was very quiet and we slept really well, I think because of this and the very comfy bed! The weather was sunny on the whole during our stay but coolish at times so we did have the heating on a bit in the evenings. It was very quick to warm up so I think would be fine at other times of the year. Some of the rooms were a bit dark, being at the side or back of the property but this didn't really matter and the living room was lovely and bright especially in the morning when it got the sun. There were just the 2 of us but it would be lovely for a family, 5 minute walk to the beach as well. Enjoyed having the 2 bathrooms! Swanage has lovely clean beaches, nice shops and places to eat and it's a great place for a holiday, lots of attractions in easy reach.

“Great stay”
Reviewed 20 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Just back from great weekend break, lovely apartment, really big with 2 bedrooms, one which is en-suite, we slept like logs in the comfy king size bed.
Really well equipped and only a ten minute walk along the front to the centre of Swanage.
Really helpful owner, highly recommend and would return in the future.

The Chines, Apt No.2, is a very cosy, inviting apt to stay in, v. close to beach, just short walk down, easy to get to shops, easy parking, 2 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms, feels like home, & v. hospitable owners, can't ask for more, definitely go back.
