Outstanding view from a very pleasant hotel. Room was very large with a balcony overlooking the sea! Lovely garden to enjoy afternoon tea whilst admiring the view. Breakfast is table service not standard buffet, huge variety, beautifully served, fresh & piping hot! We will most definitely return.

This hotel has a lounge and garden with superb views over the bay of Swanage. The parts of the hotel that have been refurbished were lovely, modern and comfortable, including our bedroom which was on the ground floor with doors out to the garden. The room was spacious, although the bathroom was small and basic. The parts yet to be... More

Stayed at the Pines in order to attend the Swanage Jazz festival. Great location right next to the beach but only 15 minutes walk from the town centre - and the Jazz Festival. Really nice room, good bar and restaurant. Every single member of the staff was polite, cheerful and very helpful. Marianne and I will definitely return.

Both my daughter our bulldog and I visited The Pines Hotel this weekend past. I would like to thank all the staff for their helpful service throughout our stay, the views, the weather, the food were absolutely spot on. Highly recommended to all.

We booked the hotel for a Bank Holiday weekend break at the end of May. The hotel is situated at the end of a cul de sac and only about a leisurely 10 minute walk from Swantage centre. As with many such hotels, it's slightly dated but with it's own charm. We had only booked bed and breakfast but the... More

We attend the Swanage Jazz festival every year and stay at the Pines. This hotel has the most amazing sea views, with whole of swanage bay, the lights of Bournemouth twickling in the distance and the Isle of Wight. The breakfast is always good, in a room that also looks out over the sea. The staff are very friendly and... More

The location provides lovely views across to the Isle of Wight - The Needles white cliff provide a wonderful change of colours if the weather is good and the sky is clear at sunset. The hotel does not look great on first external appearance but you are soon greeted by the friendly staff and guided to your room. We had... More

This is a very pleasant hotel with great sea views. We stayed here for one night. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was good and the atmosphere restful. parts of the hotel were in need of refurbishment but this did not spoil our night away.

We were upgraded to a seaview/balcony room and what a delight! Big beautiful room with a fabulous view over the bay. A tall ship festooned with soft lights anchored overnight in the water - a real treat. This hotel is set high on the hill with a dramatic cliff on one side and a sweeping view down to the seafront...
