We can recommend anyone to stay at this 1st-class establishment. Everything is spotlessly clean and well-appointed. Nothing is too much trouble fro the owners Colin and Sue, and the breakfasts are amazing. We wil definitely be staying there again on our next vist to Swanage!

I visited Ocean Lodge with a walking friend and for the first time in very many years, occupied a single room following the death of my wife. Colin met us and was as usual helpful and efficient. I was impressed with the single room and its en-suite shower and toilet. To my delight I found the room had a sea...

As ex- hoteliers my wife and I can be very critical. Our 4 night stay with Colin & Sue was excellent. They go the extra mile to be friendly and the rooms are superbly appointed with extras you do not get in bigger hotels. Very clean and sited in the middle of town I recommend this to anyone.

We booked two separate rooms, both of which were decorated to a very high standard, they were bright and airy and cosy at the same time. The breakfast was delicious and the owners were warm and welcoming. We have already recommended this to our friends and family.

Only stayed one night but it was one of the best B&B rooms I've ever been in. Owners were really friendly. This is listed as a 3 Star but I'd easily say it should be a AA 4 Star as they seem to always go the extra mile, even down to the little bottle of milk in the fridge for...
