What a super hotel. Fabulous location, friendly staff, excellent food, elegant surroundings, spotless room with a fantastic view and the sound of the sea. We loved every moment and will be returning many times. We are so glad that we found you and thank-you for making us so welcome.

It's a lovely walk into Swanage centre or along the cliff path to old Harry's rocks.We normally do dinner bed and breakfast as its so convenient not having to walk back into town.Although... More

Lovely setting overlooking the sea. Good quality meats and well cooked vegetables. Efficient service but we felt very relaxed. Good choice of alternatives to the cavary. One of the best Sunday lunches we have had in the area. Reasonably priced. We will definitely return.

This delightful well appointed hotel sits in a commanding position with far reaching views of the bay. Despite rainy weather when three generations of our family visited, the stay was very pleasant. We enjoyed a fully comprehensive breakfast, excellent service, hospitality in the refurbished lounge and a delicious Sunday roast which was applauded by all of our party. The hotel... More

Did not stay at the pines hotel, but had lunch, very pleasant with lovely sea views. Was also able to look at a couple of their rooms, very impressive. Some rooms have sea views and some don't. It is worth the extra and to have a sea view room.

Just returned from a 3-night break at The Pines. The welcome and every aspect of the stay were enjoyable and relaxed. All the staff I came across were friendly and efficient. I had a double en-suite room to the rear of the hotel so no sea view and the decor was fine but might need a little updating. But it... More

Stayed for a weekend with my daughter. Location good, though we could not access the Beach as advertised since the walkway down to it is being repaired. This is fine of course, but would have been good to have been told as may have chosen another place. The Hotel is expensive, I chose it as a special treat and included... More

Have just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel with family and 5 month old baby. All members of staff we met were excellent, nothing was too much trouble. Bedroom was good size, beautifully clean and comfortable. Breakfast was a delight, great size portions and good selection. The view over Swanage Bay is superb. The walk into the... More

Wonderful views across the bay, however disappointed with attention to detail, dirty cup in room and dreadful breakfast, we had to wait an hour for it and when it came sons eggs benedict was just a boiled egg not poached on a rock hard muffin smothered with a gloopy sauce, inedible really! Staff friendly though a very good location for... More

The location of the hotel is good. Friendly and efficient service. Restaurant staff friendly, but my little grandson could not get many items on the kids meal and that was a shame.The corridors were dark and uncomfortable. The lift is too small.
