This is the third time I have eaten at this establishment, the first time fantastic, and I wrote a review stating this. Second time we were disappointed at the lack of menu and the food was OK. Third and last time 20/05/15 waited alone in the bar to order drinks for seven minutes until someone turned up to serve me,... More

The staff at the hotel went out of their way to be helpful throughout our stay and we were made to feel very welcome. Service was always efficient, smiling and friendly. We really enjoyed our stay here.

The bar meals were very good value and the restaurant was first class again with amazing views and the evening meals were excellent. Breakfast again was first class . I can't say anything negative about this... More

Lovely afternoon tea, looking out over Swanage Bay. Very good value and lovely quality food. Good range of sandwiches and cakes and scones were delicous. Bone china crockery would of made the experience exceptional.

Having met a couple on the sea front the day before who said it's an experience to have coffee at the Grand Hotel, we decided to do just that. We'd never heard about this hotel before. Lovely service and stunning views over the bay to the town. We had a look at the Grand's dinner menu and next time we're... More

We stayed at the grand for one night only, but I wish it had been longer. The hotel was super, we had a sea view room which was worth every penny. The view across the bay was absolutely amazing! Our room was spacious and comfortable, the food was good and the staff were friendly and cheerful. Not a bad word... More

Have nothing negative to say about this hotel at all. It is a lovely old building and people should appreciate this. We had an amazing sea view. The staff were lovely. The food was very nice. Used the spa and enjoyed that. Everything about the stay was great and we would visit again. Had a great time.

Very enjoyable stay. Food was excellent and staff were superb and could not do enough for you. As previously mentioned by reviewers, the room was a little tired and could do with a refit. That said, it was spotlessly clean.
