I stayed at the hotel in August 2014 for a weekend break. The hotel is somewhat dated but not unpleasant. The staff are friendly and helpful. The room was old and a little tatty but it was clean and quiet and had a beautiful view over the sea. The hotel is well located for the beach and a short walk... More

We have stayed at this establishment twice now and each time it has been a pleasure to be there. I have to say that the hotel caters more for adults and the mature guests. Decorum and dressing for dinner the order or the day. The rooms that we have been allocated are clean and spacious. Scrupulously clean, and nicely prepared.... More

After an 8 hour drive we needed somewhere to stay in Swanage last minute, we called in at Reception and were given a key to look at a room before we decided, the room was very clean and overlooked the car park, the view is still lovely, we asked at reception if we were too late to get something to...

Have just returned from a group Christmas Lunch at The Pines. Arrived half an hour early and had a drink overlooking Swanage Bay. Our meal (for 40 people) was delicious: I had a fishl cake starter, which was the best I have tasted. For the main course I chose hake which was well presented and very tasty. For desert I... More

Stayed here for one Saturday night in December and a really good hotel. Staff are attentive and the service is very good. We had a sea view and it was stunning. The bar prices were okay and the food in restaurant at dinner was faultless, first class. Breakfast was served to the table and none of this buffet lark so... More

We stayed here for a night as we love Swanage, and have never been out of season. The Hotel is very dated and in need of some real TLC. The staff were friendly & we had paid for a sea view, but for the price I would have expected better in terms of the room! The view to the sea... More

Booked 2 single rooms and were offered 2 small doubles at the same price, also with sea views. One room was lovely, with a balcony. Beautifully furnished. The other room was quite small but unfortunately smelt very damp. The staff were apologetic and delightful and arranged a change. They had had a problem with water leakage and thought it had...

Have been here a couple of times and food is always good as is the service, today slightly different, the waitress took us to the wrong table, and got the starter order wrong, not to much of a problem, but not good when 2 people have a starter and the third is left waiting. I was very disappointed with my... More

My partner and I recently stayed in this hotel. It was a last minute choice as we were travelling from Plymouth to Winchester and wanted to stop off on the way. The receptionist was very welcoming and offered us a sea view room. The room was very comfortable and was, indeed, a sea view as the hotel backs onto the... More
