Stayed for a couple of nights in mid august to visit local relatives. Had a room without sea view but it was lovely and cool. Room large airy and shower fab. Dinner and breakfast plentiful and lovely lounge to relax in. Will stay again.

We have been coming to Swanage for many years and have stayed in a variety of hotels B&B and holiday lets, our room at the Pines hotel has to be the worst. be careful when booking a sea view room there are obviously different standards and size. We had booked a Sea view room paying £175.00 per night for 3... More

We would not stay here again, but its not a horror story at all. The market for rooms in Swanage is not very competitive so hotels like this charge more than they really should for a perfectly acceptable room, but not one that justifies central London prices. Ours cost £300 for two nights and was half the size of vastly... More

Having read some of the previous reviews I was slightly nervous about this hotel. Turns out I needn't have been! The hotel in my mind has three main selling points: the location/view is stunning, the cleanliness & the fantastic customer service. It is a 3 star hotel so yes the decor is slightly dated but if you look at the... More

I stayed here for one night. It a lovely quiet hotel with fantastic views of the beach. How ever I stayed in room 41 which I found rather small especially the bed. The bathroom was small with no bath and the shower had no pressure at all in the morning so was impossible to have a proper wash. I feel... More

There is a sparsity of quality hotel accommodation in Swanage which may be why Three Star hotels are able to charge Five Star prices. Arguably one such hotel is The Pines where my wife and I stayed for a few days earlier this month. The stand-out points are the catering and the view with the remainder varying from good to... More
