I booked up the Pines Hotel online and really did not know what to expect. I arrived via motorcycle rather tired but happy to be there and parked up. The cost of the single room was good at £148 for three night with a cooked breakfast as well. The room was small but adequate, it had an on - suite... More

We were booked for two nights. The room was clean and adequate, if a little on the small side. But the public rooms are lovely - spacious and comfortable. The dinner was superb, in a lovely dining room, with beautifully laid tables, superb service and very good food. But the best part of the hotel was the staff, everyone of... More

Friendly staff, but you only get what you pay for. Our room was a sea view double, refurbished, but was really cramped with a tiny double bed. Good breakfast, but why not open a window?! It was so hot and stuffy.

Stayed for an idyllic five day treat, it's so lovely to come here and feel looked after, it's not the most splendid looking building ever, but the service is terrific, the staff friendly and relaxed and the views from most of the rooms are to die for. We had room 18 this time, a lovely suite with a double bed... More

A last minute one night booking, although we have been before 4 years ago so knew "what to expect". Despite not having a "sea view room" (they were avaiable but we had a great deal with "Booking.com"), they took the trouble to contact me by phone to tell us the room we had was very quiet with outstanding views of...

We eat regularly at The Pines - the food being solid rather than spectacular - but the views are amazing. staff very attentive. BUT why must the starter arrive before the drinks - and why is the Sweet menu offered before the main course is cleared??

Fantastic seaviews from our room and the gardens! Watched the storm from the comfort of our beautiful balcony room.The food in the restaurant was excellent in variety and quality.We are planning to visit again next year with the children as the beach will be fabulous come summer time.

must be one of the best hotels in Swanage. large comfortable lounge for a relaxing drink ( tea/coffee or stronger ), large car park, great views over the sea and along the coast, ideal for walkers. most of the visitors were returning and only had good things to say - which can't be bad. not cheap but value for money...
