The hotel has had some much needed redecoration lets hope they carry on Perhaps the beds could do with updating next. The lift only takes 2 people and got stuck twice while we were there. The gardens are an added bonus on a sunny day perhaps new sun loungers and chairs would be nice. The conservatory with its magnificent views... More

This is probably one of the best beachside hotels I've ever stayed in. The staff are very helpful and polite. The facilities are great and the views are exceptional. I will certainly be returning for another stay.

We have not stayed at the Grand Hotel Swanage, but can comment very favourably on it as a venue, this July, for a Golden Wedding Anniversary Lunch for a party of 40 guests including children . It was an excellent choice. Lindsay, the General Manager was very helpful in the planning stages, and the restaurant staff with Irene, Restaurant Manager,... More

Upon arrival I mentioned to the receptionist that their evening dinner had been recommended by a friend and I was looking forward to it. Her reply was that was on a previous night and it didn't mean it would be for us. I wish I had taken note of her warning because the meal was only OK and the waiters... More

Staff were friendly at times, but sometimes behaved as if customers were a nuisance. The food in the bar and restaurant was disappointing. The... More

Very dated decor, thin unlined curtains which means the room was fully light at about 5.30 am. Bathroom very dated with limescale rong around... More

Stayed here on Honeymoon in July 2014 and is the sort of experience money can't buy, it is quaint and charming with a fantastic location. We experienced excellent customer service and very friendly staff. You do have to forgo some of the creature comforts and the showers could really do with replacing but apart from that a fantastic hotel and... More
