A hotel going back in time - lots of friendly, well trained staff, comfortable lounge areas and a genteel, quiet atmosphere attracting many older people, though there are plenty of kid's play facilities so I guess many families are here in the school hols. Also an era of trust where you have to ask if you want a room key.... More

It’s easy to drive past Knoll House Hotel on the ferry road between Sandbanks and Swanage. Wrapped in a blanket of stunning National Trust countryside, it’s more of a sign post than staging post for enthusiastic drivers in a hurry to explore Purbeck. Which I’ve just discovered, is a major mistake. The hotel itself has old school charm as far... More

We had afternoon here last year and it was lovely, so decided to go for our wedding anniversary this year. It was a Tuesday and we took the day off walk and decided to walk along the beach from Bournemouth (nearly 3 hours). The walk was lovely, however upon arrival at the hotel we were told by a rather abrupt... More

We enjoyed a lovely dinner with old school friends and their wife's at this quaint hotel overlooking Studland Bay. The staff were attentive and welcoming. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced as we're the wines. Puddings were amazing! Would definitely go again.

We were lucky to find this family friendly hotel who were very willing to serve cream teas to non-residents, (unlike the nearby Pig on the Beach Hotel who turned us away.) And it turned out to be one of the best cream teas we have enjoyed. We are now tempted to book a holiday here.

I stayed two nights and it was all very satisfactory, apart from a slight smell of stale food around the dining room, and some parts of the hotel looking a bit tired. The staff were numerous, young, mostly foreign, and all very keen to please, so service was excellent and very friendly, and most of the other guests were as... More

We decided to visit this hotel for a night last weekend. It is set in beautiful surroundings overlooking Studland Bay. The immediate impression of being welcomed was set up the receptionist and then the porter who carried our bags to our room. We had taken our grandson aged 8 with us and he had an upstairs room to our double... More

We stayed at the hotel to be close to Studland Bay for an event, and it was by far the most convenient location, with a very pleasant walk down to the beach. We were given a large room in a great location with two large balconies offering excellent sea views. The bathroom was relatively new and fresh although the room... More

Our family has been to Knoll House several times, and will keep returning. The reason? It is simply streets ahead of other hotels when it comes to catering for children. We have a toddler son, and we have stayed in numerous hotels with him. Every time we always say: 'if only we were at Knoll House ...' They have unbelievably... More
