This hotel which has moved considerably up-market is really splendid and is incredibly well positioned for its seaside views.. Both bedrooms and public rooms are extremely comfortable and furnished to a high standard. The standard of food is of the highest quality. Service, both in the restaurant and the hotel can only be described as excellent. Swanage, whilst taking you... More

Delightful views, excellent table-service breakfast, clean modern room, comfortable bed, functional free WiFi. Pleasant, helpful, unobtrusive staff especially in the restaurant. In a sea-view room, morning sunshine may wake you early; my curtains were thin. Some noise from the next room, and loud footfalls in the corridor above. Restaurant and lounge background music could be better chosen &/or less loud.... More

We were part of a group of 27 staying for a three night break. We could not have chosen a better hotel in this part of Dorset. From the moment that we arrived until we left, the manager and his staff made us feel really welcome and nothing was too much trouble. In the dining room, the choice and quality... More

Fabulous from start to finish, arrived at 13:45 21/03/15 reception very attentive, polite and welcoming. Room prefect extra view with a duel aspect but not classes as sea view despite there being one! Location beautiful, with the hills on one side sea on the other and a stunning rooftops view of swanage. Swanage town centre a short walk down the... More

For the price you pay, this is a lovely little find. Clean and nicely decorated. Lovely, helpful friendly staff. We were given room 15, which had a fantastic view over the Solent. Unfortunately, due to the English weather, we were unable to see the IOW. The only down side of the bedroom was the lack of sound proofing between rooms,... More

Third visit to "The Pines Hotel" and as usual lived up to our expectations. If you want a relaxing holiday this is the place to stay. Very helpful and pleasant staff, extensive breakfast menu, clean & comfy rooms (worth asking for an upgrade when you arrive as they may have sea rooms available, we were given Room10 which has a...

This place is ok, but extremely old-fashioned. I was staying on my own for the blues festival, and unfortunately I got a very poor night's sleep due to a combination of inconsiderate guests next door and what seems to be a complete lack of sound-proofing between the rooms. The breakfast was good, but I would have preferred more of a... More

This is our fifth visit to The Pines, and it has become our yearly treat. It is also the place to bring friends for dinner knowing they will be comfortable and enjoy excellent food. Check in very friendly and you are put at your ease by the professional but easy going staff, many who have been here for some years,... More

A fantastic meal tonight. Staff friendly and helpful and not too obvious. Although it was dark I imagined the view across the bay as I had sat in the restaurant many times. Tonight the food was exceptional. Charcuterie, steak, panna cotta. Straightforward but cooked to perfection. No boring peas and carrots here. Red cabbage and creamed leeks as well as... More

The Pines Hotel offered a room with a stunning sea view. The food was first class (breakfast and dinner). The staff were very helpful and pleasant. A marvelous lounge and bar with attentive service. I'm normally a telly addict but didn't put the thing on for the duration of our stay. It was sufficient to sit and look at the... More
