Yes, the hotel is in need of updating but don't be put off by the wallpaper and curtains! This is a friendly hotel with helpful staff, amazing views and in a great location, meaning you can walk easily into Swanage and not worry about trying to park the car! The food was good (only had breakfast) and the rooms were... More

Stayed here for 3 nights, dinner, bed breakfast as treat for a family birthday. (Party of 12)Loved this hotel! We stayed in a family suite over looking the sea with a fabulous view. You can take your dog if you wish ( we ended up having to do this due to a problem with the kennels that we had booked).... More

The hotel is situated overlooking Peveril point and has marvellous views of the beaches from the gardens. We had a room looking out to this view and it was only a short walk... More

We had booked a Sea view room paying £175.00 per night for 3... More

We would not stay here again, but its not a horror story at all. The market for rooms in Swanage is not very competitive so hotels like this charge more than they really should for a perfectly acceptable room, but not one that justifies central London prices. Ours cost £300 for two nights and was half the size of vastly... More
