“Ideal place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

We stayed for three night when the temperature outside was one degree but we were warm as toast in the hotel The room was clean and comfortable and the en-suite was particularly smart. The breakfast was excellent especially the fresh fruit salad which I enjoyed. Sue and Colin were the perfect hosts helpful and friendly. It is situated in the heart of Swanage so it is right by shops, restaurants, beaches or a place to catch crabs.

We have stayed at Ocean Lodge twice now, recommend it to anyone as we love it there. A very warm and comfortable atmosphere. Sue and Colin are very welcoming. The room we stayed in was lovely, very clean and cosy. Breakfast is great and they cater for anyone. Located nice and close to beach, shops, restaurants etc....makes your stay so much easier. Looking forward to our next stay.

I stayed in the Ocean Lodge for three nights recently and was very impressed. It located close to the sea, has very comfortable clean, quiet rooms that have modern fittings and all comforts. The shower room was better than most much more expensive hotels I have been in over the years.

Breakfast had everything you could ask for including catering for special diets and the coffee was great. Since I was on a business trip the wifi was handy, and Colin and Sue were warm and welcoming.

There is no off road parking but that is the nature of the town and in any case I had no trouble parking on the road which was both quiet and safe. I'm staying there again this weekend.

Fabulous breakfast, especially the granola with fresh fruit salad. The rooms are comfortable, very clean and beautifully decorated - my small double had a sea view. The hosts are friendly and very helpful. Thanks to Colin & Sue.... Definitely recommend this one! Will go back.

I would highly recommend this friendly b&b. Lovely hosts, perfect room with large comfy bed & great cooked breakfasts or a large choice of cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurts etc. Would definitely go back again.

We have just returned from a fantastic 3 night stay at the Ocean Lodge Swanage. Sue & Colin were very welcoming. The family room that we had was very spacious, furnishings were lovely & modern, the en-suite bathroom was beautiful. The room was immaculate which also included fridge with fresh milk if required, tv & a selection of dvd's, hairdryer, tea & coffee making facilities (biscuits replenished everyday.) Full cooked breakfast every morning,fresh fruit salad & more, delicious! Location was excellent. Will definitely return x

Room Tip: I should imagine that all the rooms are of very good standard if ours was anything to go by.
