You can expect a comfortable and quiet night at the latter end of February but the breakfast was a most pleasant surprise. No miniature butter and jam packs, no kippers boiled in a bag but the real thing. An enormous choice of nuts, fruit and cereals which would be hard to beat anywhere and prompt service. We saved by booking... More

Everything here is just perfect. Welcome, breakfast and cleanliness all A1. As good as any Hotel and cosier. Clive and JUDIE are perfect hosts and very knowledgable about the whole area. Don't forget to ask for recommendations.

We had to stay over in Swanage due to a family crisis and chose Town Hall Lodge because of its convenient location. Room 4. The room was absolutely spotless and the attention to detail rivaled any 5 star hotel. Excellent complimentary gels and shampoos in the bathroom. Not as you might expect in disposable sachets but all in proper pump... More

I always stay in hotels because B&B's can have those cheap '80's nylon sheets and old fashioned lamps with tassels. But I saw Town Hall on trip advisor and decided to risk it. I was really surprised at how well its run (I'm a big, award winning hotelier so imagine how fussy I am). Outstanding breakfast, tasteful contemporary albeit slightly... More

We enjoyed a great few days in Swanage during the blues festival and couldn't have picked a better B&B than Town Hall Lodge. Centrally located but very quiet...The owners, Judy & Clive, couldn't have been more helpful. The room was spotless and the breakfast offerings superb...so much choice. I would highly recommend Town Hall Lodge to anyone looking for a... More

What a little gem of a B&B. Great centraltown location, but just off main street so ideally placed for walking the town and getting around. We stayed for the weekend were fed Clive and Judith's great breakfasts and felt more like house guests than paying customers. We will retun, hopefully soon Tony & Pauline

The room was lovely and light and airy, the bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was amazing...we would definitely stay again. The only disappointment was that there was no bath but as everything else was superb it didn't matter. Thank you!

A first class establishment. Central to all Swanage has to offer. There are 4 bedrooms and we had no 1. Although not overly large it contained every thing required. Bed linen was crisp and the large bed was very comfortable. Toiletries were good quality and smelt gorgeous.The room was surprisingly quiet in view of its location. The shower room/toilet was...
