We stayed here for 3 night in July, in a lovely large ground floor room in Louisa Lodge overlooking the garden. I initially booked this hotel because of the large private car park and had no expectations, however I was pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome and tranquility of the surroundings, even though we were in the middle of Swanage....

What a wonderful hotel with ample free parking in the very heart of Swanage. I stayed in room 6 which had a small balcony overlooking the garden. Lovely spotless rooms and comfortable beds. The hotel is full of old world character and charm. We had an evening meal which was very enjoyable and very good service. The cooked breakfasts are... More

Well where do I start me and my partner had such a poor experience at this hotel. I found the room dirty and very dated in fact it was very much dated throughout the whole hotel. It was very overpriced for what it was the food was nothing special either especially after having to wait nearly an hour for it.... More

Stayed here for one night in the new building over looking the beach and sea front. The room was huge and the facilities were lovely, but the view won as it was fantastic. Superb location in the quaint village, walking distance to everything. Everyone was so friendly and the room was amazing, looking forward to returning!

This hotel is in an amazing building which is very much associated with the history of Swanage. It has been beautifully restored and improved. All rooms have a character of their own. The staff are very friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. We ate in the restaurant one evening whilst staying there and enjoyed excellent food and attentive service. The breakfasts are... More

Don't be put off by the imposing granite exterior, it's a lovely old house in a terrific location just a few minutes walk from the town. You can stay in the main house or in the more modern Louisa Lodge in the grounds at the back of the gardens. We stayed in the Lodge and we felt that it was... More

We have just had 5 lovely days in Swanage staying at the Purbeck House hotel-we have stayed here 6 times since November 2014 due to our daughter working in the area. We have stayed in both the old house and the newer lodge, and the rooms are good value. This time we were in a lovely large room (4) in... More

Only found this hotel by chance by walking round the town but what a find it was. The outside appearance is very impressive and the inside lives up to it too. The rooms were very clean and well equipped and mine was very spacious too though the shower taps do take a bit of working out! Hospitality trays are provided... More

We stayed in room 3 for the weekend, it has great views over the rooftops to the sea. This hotel is ailing a little in places but that didn't take anything away from a really pleasant stay. Really nice location close to some great little shops and restaurants.
