Spent 2 nights here on a deal and wished we could have stayed longer. Staff were efficient but friendly from check in to departure. Food was excellent, and so was the service. Although an old traditional hotel it was well looked after, clean and warm( in fact too warm for us) The restaurant staff were very attentive and remembered from... More

Congratulations to The Grand Hotel team for putting on such an enjoyable evening for all on New Year's Eve. The organisation, planning and all the staff were brilliant on the evening and our meal was delicious. The live band and disco were great. Well done to The Grand for making it a great evening for all.

We stayed here because of a friend's birthday party.On the positive side,the views from the conservatory,and some rooms are stunning;the fire in the lounge is welcoming,and the staff pleasant. The room,104,was only adequate,albeit with the view,however this could not make amends for the old hard bed,and the "bathroom" no more than a broom cupboard in which the shower requires urgent...

This is a comfortable, slightly old fashioned, but delightful surprise. Well appointed (and warm) room, bathroom (at least ours) slightly compact but clean and everything worked. The sea view is wonderful - see the crashing waves. Food was slightly pricey, but excellent quality. The staff genuinely friendly and helpful. I am sure we will go back as this is a... More

First class service with a smile, lovely views overlooking the sea. quiet location. Food very good with the menu changed nightly, Small heated pool but a large Jacuzzi. Well equipped exercise space with adequate showers. Furnishings a little tired in places. Great value for money, would go again. .

We have just had a few days here. I cannot fault this hotel for the staff, food and views. Nothing was too much trouble for all the staff and the food was excellent. My husband always refuses to go back to the same place again but It looks as though I will be lucky this time.

My wife and I had a great New Year's Eve enjoying a 6 course meal which was served by very attentive staff. The food was excellent and hot so very well done to the chef and team. Very much enjoyed the after diner entertainment making the whole experience one to remember. Will certainly book again next year.

I was just starting to think about booking our now traditional post Christmas treat to us when a Living Social offer popped into my in-box. Two nights bed and breakfast at The Grand Hotel in Swanage for two for 99 pound. Having booked with Living Social previously and not been disappointed, we decided to book The Grand Hotel before going... More

My family and I wanted to make this New Years Eve a special one, so what better way to celebrate the start of 2015 than with a delicious meal, fantastic entertainment and an overnight stay at The Grand Hotel! The 6 course dinner was fabulous considering the large dining room was at full capacity, the food was piping hot and... More

We visited The Grand Hotel on NYE to take advantage of their entertainment package (6 course meal and live music for £55 pp) and we had a lovely evening!! Our group was made up of people of all ages and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The staff were attentive, very professional and ensured the night ran smoothly!! We will be returning... More
