At the mini roundabout go straight over (second exit). Millbrook is 200 yards on your right just after the fire station, opposite the beautiful parish church.

Answers to common questions

Should we book direct?

In short, Yes.

Call / email or use our ‘Book Online’ option here on this website and benefit from a better cancellation policy than you would receive when booking through other online travel agents.

Also by contacting us directly we may be able to offer you nights that may not show on other online travel agents websites.

Where can we park?

Swanage is a Victorian town and therefore was built when cars were not in the plan. We are lucky enough to have our own off road parking with space for 6 cars on a first come first served basis, very few Hotels/B&Bs in Swanage can boast better.

This can be found around the rear of Millbrook and is accessed via Court Road. Millbrook is also in an unrestricted parking area, you can park out the front on Kings Road, or on Court Road as well as other side roads such as Locarno Road (by Launderette).

How can we pay?

Deposits can be paid by credit/debit card or bank transfer (account details on request), We also accept cheques for deposits but the booking will not be confirmed until the cheque has cleared. The remaining balance can be paid by Cash, Credit or Debit card upon arrival or departure.

Using our Car Park

We have space for 6 cars, on a first come first served basis. However, in order to fit 6 on 2 cars need to park in front of others. The end bays are nose to nose, the other crosses 2 bays. This means that if fully used 3 cars are blocked in. Therefore we ask that anyone who parks in these bays to leave their keys in their rooms just in case an emergency arises and those blocked cars need to get out. If you get blocked by others don’t worry as we know who is blocking you in and if you are going out for the day we can ask guests to move. If you are not happy leaving your keys then we ask that you park on the road, it could be you who is blocked in when an emergency arises.

What is your cancellation policy?

Always book direct to benefit from the best cancellation policy. For our standard bookings the following conditions apply:-

  • If the booking is cancelled 14 or more days before arrival then a charge equal to £5 per booking will be made.
  • If the booking is cancelled less than 14 days before arrival then a charge equal to 25% of the stay will be made.
  • If the booking is cancelled less than 2 days before arrival then a charge equal to 50% of the stay will be made.

Note: We do take a deposit of a single night at the time of booking, which will be refunded accordingly if you cancel your stay.

For bookings made via Online Travel Agents (e.g. please refer to  the terms and conditions at the time of booking.

We also offer a non refundable discounted rate, full payment is taken at the time of booking and is not refundable.

We strongly recommend you take out travel insurance to cover such eventualities.

Are you dog friendly?

As much as we love dogs we do not accept dogs or any other pets in our guest house.

Is Millbrook a non smoking guest house?

We do not allow smoking in any of our rooms or guest areas and will ask any guests found to have smoked to leave. However we do have a bench at the front of the house as well as a cigarette bin for smokers to use.

Check in time is from 4pm until 9pm, check out is up to 10:30.
However, should you arrive earlier you are welcome to park up and ring the bell, if we are in and your room is ready we are more than happy to check you in. If you need to leave early you can settle up the evening before and leave key in an agreed place.
If you are arriving (or leaving) by Public Transport and need to leave cases etc then please let us know so we can arrange something, we will always do what ever we can to make your arrival and departure as easy as possible.
