Stayed at the hotel for one night to visit friends in the area. Although a number of the furnishings have been modernised the building is very old and in need of refurbishment. It has a worn, dated feeling rather than the old charm we expected. We booked a sea view room and the view was beautiful. Overlooking the bay with... More

We booked two nights in a family room with bed and breakfast. Our granddaughter and cocker spaniel accompanied us. The room was spacious, well decorated and had a balcony overlooking the sea. It had everything we needed, even a mat and a towel was provided for our dog at no extra charge. We had to turn the radiator off and... More

A small group of us booked dinner from The Pines' Christmas Party menu, this being our first visit here for our annual event. The first impression was that all the staff at reception; bar; & restaurant were very friendly and efficient in the service they were providing. The bar/lounge was warm & welcoming and our table superbly decorated and laid... More

We had arranged dinner for 10 in the restaurant but only 8 of us were staying at the hotel. This seemed to totally throw the restaurant staff as for each course, only 8 dishes were brought out. We had to reorder the other 2 each time. It wasn't always the same 2 which were missed. I have to say that... More

We live in Swanage so it is ideal to have a lovely restaurant on our doorstep. We mainly go there for an unforgettable Sunday lunch but we have also enjoyed their evening dining. The food is always first class and the waiting staff are so friendly, polite and helpful. We enjoy our meal overlooking breathtaking views of Swanage Bay. It... More

We were celebrating my sister's 50th birthday at Studland (The Pig) but had left it too late to get a room there, so went for The Pines. I booked a family room as we had our 13yr old son with us. I was therefore very pleasantly surprised to find that he had his own separate room (as did my husband... More
