We managed to book a double room for a Saturday night on the spur of the moment to get away for the weekend to the area around Swanage for a Great British dip-in-the-sea; very easy going hotel; comfortable room, but not designer bathrooms (thank goodness), but good towels, working shower, good mattress on bed. The hotel was almost homely. Felt a bit expensive but staying anywhere in England often is. Great breakfast, friendly and helpful owner. excellent location:-few minutes walk down the hill to Swanage, (sea, sand, ice cream, beer and fish and chips ..not all at once..) and a few minutes walk up to the country park/coastal path. Beautiful beaches and estuary walks of Studland 10 mins drive away. The other direction the beautiful 'otherness' of the area kept undeveloped by the army's occupation!
