Good location, comfortable rooms, pleasant staff and good food. Quiet location, lovely sea views and garden overlooking the sea. Large car park and good walks near by. Award winning restaurant with views out to sea over the bay Family owned for 30 Years. Dogs accepted at no charge.

We got to our chosen hotel in Swanage to be told " we didn't process your payment try The Pines next door." All they had was a twin room with a sea view, a little on the small side but clean and tidy albeit dated and in need of a repaint. We went for a long walk along the coast... More

Main issue was very thin stud walls meaning you can hear everything from Adjoining rooms. Bed was also standard double size with a poor quality mattress.if my partner moved it was like... More

Just returned from a relaxing three night break at The Pines Hotel, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our room was large with its own small terrace with table and chairs directly overlooking Swanage Bay. Although the bathroom was small it was perfectly adequate. The restaurant was excellent with the Dinner menu changing daily, and imaginative food delightfully served by the... More

We spent one night here in a family room which to our surprise consisted of two bedrooms which was ideal. The breakfast menus were great with a wide choice. We did not have a view of the sea however we still had a fantastic view of the hills which was lovely. There are lounges that you can go in and... More

Our room was a good size, newly decorated, with a large bathroom. We booked a room with a sea view and a balcony and it was worth every penny - the view was stunning. It was lovely to wake up and be able to see the sea from our bed! The staff were very helpful and the food was excellent.... More

The lunch is very good value with exceptional sea views. If you enjoy crisp linen tablecloths & napkins and excellent service, then this is the place to visit. The food is delicious and beautifully presented.
