Parked in very large car park, didn't take luggage into main hotel as I knew I was staying in annex (Louisa Lodge) Good welcome on checking in with all amenities explained and wifi code told. Told where room was, so left my bag and coat there, before going to car and bringing in my luggage - all very easy. My... More

Our room was in Louisa Lodge, a newer annexe to the hotel, a large room with space to unpack and unwind. Tea tray with biscuits replenished each day, and... More

Perfect base for exploring Swanage and nearby area. Very accommodating hotel with friendly staff and good food. Large conservatory dining room at the back of the hotel which was good for us as we were there as a large group.

Visited with a party of 14 for their Sunday carvery as a 60th birthday celebration. Staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. They even arranged to cut our birthday cakes and serve them in the lounge with coffee after the meal. Food was good and plentiful and the venue itself is amazing. Once the home of "the king... More

A beautiful part of the world with a hotel to match. The staff were all very courteous, well presented and polite. The room was itself immaculate and warm to enter (which is a rarity this time of year). Breakfast was superb. I wish I had the local butchers in my town. From a parental point of view. My six year...

Few friends stayed the night here. Comfortable room in the Louisa Lodge, very spacious with large bed. A decent breakfast the morning after and right on the high street of Swanage. Good for the coast path and exploring the town and area.

Had our wedding here last Friday and it was an outstanding success. Sarah the wedding planner was excellent from day one when we booked a year ago and made sure everything went smoothly. The food and service was second to none and Stuart the toastmaster kept everyone in line! We couldn't have asked for a better location, venue, food or... More

The best hotel... you wake up in the atmosphere of the 19th century, open your eyes and see the sea, have breakfast in the most exquisite view of the garden and savour the tea time at the fireplace. Many thanks and best wishes to the wonderful staff of the Purbeck Hotel in Swanage. Liebe Grüße aus Seifhennersdorf!
