First stay at the Grand Hotel although we know Swanage very well. Took advantage of an Amazon break and were glad we did. Views from the hotel are fantastic with a very relaxing atmosphere. Room was spacious and very clean. Had one evening meal in the restaurant which was of a high standard and the breakfasts were great, all you... More

A last minute overnight stay which was thoroughly enjoyable. The room was spacious and very clean with stunning views across the bay. Made all the more enjoyable by the unseasonably warm weather! All the staff were extremely helpful and friendly and helped make our stay a pleasant experience. We would certainly return to hotel if in the area again.

We have visited the Grand quite a few times over the pat 16 years or so but had not been back for some time. This was an Amazon break that was so reasonable it was too good to miss. We requested and were allocated a sea view room which was £20 extra but well worth it. Room 103 was spacious... More

We stayed for two nights in this lovely Victorian Hotel which sits high on the cliffs overlooking Swanage bay. Unlike many similar age hotels it has been tastefully updated and decorated without loosing any of it's charm. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful as was the manager. We enjoyed the warmth of the hotel, it's fantastic views, comfy sofas... More

My husband and I have just stayed at this hotel for two nights on a Living Social deal. Our room was comfortable and warm, and we did not upgrade to a sea view bedroom as in November the evenings are dark so early. The view from the dining room and conservatory during the day were marvellous. The food was very... More

We stayed here on a 2 night D B&B Deal so we didn't know what to expect. On checking in the receptionist told us we had a sea view room which immediately got us all excited as the hotel is perched high on the top of a cliff! We actually didn't have a sea view room! After some discussion we... More
