Well thank you very much for a lovely one night stay. Great food in the bar and really nice evening meal in the restaurant, and superb choice at breakfast, beautiful view from my room overlooking the bay, spacious clean room, you will not be disappointed if you stay here.

What a beautiful building the Purbeck House Hotel is! Absolutely stunning! When I arrived in the evening, I was greeted warmly by the lovely staff and pointed in the direction of my room. When I entered it was a cosy double room with an ensuite and supposedly when the sun is up you can see the ocean and beautiful cliffs!... More

Stayed a week at the flats opposite owned by the hotel (Springfield House) and found it clean and very spacious. It was superbly equipped with everything and more that you could think of! It has a prime location on the High Street in among all the lovely old buildings on that street. Frequently ate at the hotel in the bar... More

We stayed in the Lodge for two nights on a Dinner Bed and Breakfast rate and found it to be very good value for our stay. The room was clean and had everything you would require in it although I would say it was a little on the motel type room, the only negatives with the room was that no... More

We went here as a group of four based on fond memories as kids coming here while on holiday in Swanage. The place has really gone downhill - average beef/poor quality lamb, generic and sad-looking veg, cheap table places (no mats, blunt & bent cutlery), and aside from one friendly waiter, fairly disinterested staff. The prices they charge are distinctly... More

Hotel was ok but window in the room kept rattling and when I mentioned it to the receptionist the next day she was very dismissive of my comments and I felt she did not believe me. Lovely grounds, good location and car parking was available. Breakfast was good and the staff in the restaurant were friendly, attentive and very helpful.... More

Booked for two nights stay as a party of four with myself and my husband and both mums. We were greeted very warmly by the lady on reception who had booked both mums into rooms on the ground floor as there is no lift in the hotel. We stayed in Louisa Lodge which is a newer block of rooms across... More

Spent 2 nights here for a family celebration. Old building, but well maintained and full of character. Ample car parking space, Pleasant helpful staff. Situated within easy walk of all town centre and local attractions. Would use again if staying in Swanage.
