This was our first time here and will not be our last. We booked here primarily because of the off road parking which is plentiful. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was good. I would recommend this hotel to anybody wanting to visit Swanage.

We have just had a short break at Purbeck House Hotel and found both the staff and the accommodation were excellent. The first time we have visited this hotel but certainly wont be the last. Excellent food and very clean spacious rooms enhance your holiday experience. Ian H

A wonderful hotel. We have visited this hotel twice and both times have had a lovely time. Very nice staff, clean and bright rooms. Lovely breakfast. Brilliant location. On the first visit we were offered a free upgrade which showed stunning views of the sea and beautiful Swanage. Hope to back very soon.

We stayed for 4 days and really enjoyed the comfortable, spacious and airy superior room. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent and the evening menu looked good.... . Unfortunately we didn't get around to trying it because we had other activities planned. Will definitely stay again next time we plan to stay in Swanage.

We were given a free upgrade to give us the best located room for is to be within baby monitor range of the bar. The room was huge and the service and food we had were excellent. As with many of these stunning old hotels the interior is a bit dated, but I have no hesitation in recommending it.

An characterful old country house hotel in the centre of Swanage, with a large car park and attractive garden. Helpful staff, decent restaurant and bar, and a short walk from town centre cafes and shops (and the beach). I stayed in the modern annexe which is clean, comfortable and fairly roomy, if a bit functional. It's also very quiet as... More

We recently stayed at the Louisa Lodge & Purbeck House Hotel for two nights and really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is in a great location on the hill in Swanage and is close to the local pubs, restaurants and cafes whilst being very quiet. The gardens are lovely and I imagine a great place to relax in the summer.... More
