Following a wedding in Southampton we spent 2 nights at this hotel through an Amazon local offer. The hotel was clean & comfortable well supplied with toiletries & tea/coffee etc, & the bed was really comfortable, also had 2 chairs in the room, (often only 1 provided in some hotels). While there we used the spa facilities & ate in... More

I have stayed at The Grand twice for the Swanage Blues Festival. This is held Bi-Annually and The Grand is the main venue for 3 nights of wonderful live music. The hotel and staff treat all visitors with friendly and professional service and go out of their way to ensure your visit meets all your expectations

Stayed here for swanage music festival Oct 2014. The staff are excellent, professional, accommodating and always happy to help. We booked late for this festival and we're lucky to get any accommodation. As we didn't have a sea view room we thought we may have the worst outlook. But no it was fine with three windows in the room and... More

On the day booking - great deal for a family if 4 sharing 2 doubles. Rooms clean and beds very comfortable and sea view from windows was amazing. The children loved the pool, the garden and the secret path to the beach. The general manager was incredibly helpful, friendly and welcoming!

Had a very relaxing 3 day stay at the Grand Hotel. Lovely double room, with great views of Swanage Bay. Helpful and friendly staff. Food very nice. Idea base for many local walks, or just relaxing in Hotel garden. Definitely recommend the hotel.

We had such a great stay at the Grand Hotel - we stayed three nights B&B. The staff were so helpful and kind, nothing was too much trouble. Lindsay in particular was completely lovely and very friendly. The breakfast was great quality and we had a cream tea on the second last day, two massive scones, very tasty but too... More

I understand that it is a Victorian Hotel, that is why I booked it. A chance to get a room with high ceilings and the sense of space that gives. A chance to get the great views the Victorians were famous for liking. I also accept that many changes have been made, not least the fire doors onto each floor... More
