“Our first visit, excellent all round and we'll certainly return”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2011

We booked this hotel at short notice knowing that the only available room was the standard twin, described elsewhere as small and not having the vineyard view. Whilst that is indeed the case, the room was of a very good standard with an excellent bathroom - one of the best we've found. Extra touches such as bathrobes, tea making facilities and free newspapers also really made a difference. The meals (both breakfast and dinner) were very good indeed : fresh, local produce expertly prepared by a good chef. The only reason we couldn't give an overall 5 star rating was because the service was a bit haphazard at times : young and friendly staff but who were just a bit disorganised.

We stayed for one night in a family room - great value - to visit corfe castle. The manageress could not have been more helpful, nothing was too much trouble, from extending the heating to letting us check out late since I felt iunwell. And the views from the breakfast room were stunning. It's not luxury but its very good for the price .

We booked the vineyard 4 weeks in advance for my 50th birthday,we were looking for luxury accomodation with fine dinning.Day before travelling i phoned to book a table and was told they no longer offered fine dinning!! SO WHY does there web site still offer a service they do not provide,WHY was`nt i informed of this when they received the booking via e.mail,phone or post they had all the information.
On arrival we were taken to our clean,modern but small £130 a night no way well overpriced.The uht milk in the room was off great start.
First night decided to eat in the"daily menu" starter salmon served on a extra thick stale slice of bread on top a lettuce leaf.....LOVELY next ,main course rib eye steak a
half of tomatoe between two! i had fifteen chips on the plate and the steak was about 10mm thick this is normally known as a slice!also ACCOMPANIED BY ONE OF THE COOKS HAIR!
I asked for a bottle of the vineyards full bodied red,sorry we hav`nt any...you have to laugh!
so we had a botte white acidic was not the word not reccomended
Went back to the room turned on the tv no reception i was told this is common in all the rooms!SO WHY advertise it??
Breakfast was excellant both mornings,but our first night was an experience we will never forget.
Thi accomodation has four star AA ratings,its about time they went back,and take the authorities with them and look at food & hygiene and trading standards for false advertising.

V brief review. I stayed here on a family re-union. The rooms were nice, the staff when available were helpful and the food was excellent. The kids had a great time. At times during the day there was no-one around. It is simply a function of the staffing of this "bed-and-breakfast" like place and is not a reflection on the fact that the staff at this place. They on the whole work very hard and are eager to please. I was very happy with this place and would recommend it.

My Wife & I stayed here with our two year old son for the August bank holiday weekend & had a great time.

The hotel is fantastically located between, Corfe Castle, Swanage & the beaches ideal for a weekend getaway. We stayed in a family room & there was a bed tucked away where you would normally find the wardrobe in a hotel room by the door with a curtain covering it, our son thought this was brilliant like a little den & also meant that he didn't have to sleep at the end of our bed.

The decor of the hotel is very sylish but also inviting, you feel like you are a guest at a friends house, all the staff seem genuinely pleased you chose to stay there & you have the free run of the place, explore the vineyards, nice lounge area & an honesty bar all go towards making you feel very welcome. They even had a baby listening devise so that we could feel comfotable leaving our son in the room while we had dinner.

The food is at a reasonable price & of a really good quality the new chef came & spoke to us about his ideas & they sounded very interesting indeed. And we were pleasently suprised by the quality of the wine as well & even bought a couple of botles home with us.

Thanks to all the staff for a great couple of days

We were visiting family and friends as we live in Canada and hadn’t been back home for over 5 years. We booked to stay for a week. The rooms were great, we had the family connecting room and the family room upstairs as we have 4 children. The setting is beautiful, with a huge garden for children to play in and watch the Swanage steam train from. The staff are great and couldn’t have been more helpful, nothing was too much trouble and always received with a smile. The food was exceptional, the breakfast was fantastic and could be substituted without any fuss. The children absolutely loved the food, especially the pasta. On the Saturday night we had a group dinner, first 14 children followed by 17 adults which worked really well. Everyone with our group loved it and some even extended their stay. The children are already asking to go back! We would definitely go back.
