We used to go to the Pines regularly but haven't been for a couple of years.Going in summer there is a mixed age of residents from elderly people , middle aged (that's us!!)young couples and families with young children who were very well behaved.Yes the hotel is dated in some parts but they have done up many rooms which are large and the ones with a balcony have the most superb view of Swanage Bay. Rooms with nice new balcony table and chairs include rooms 1 and 18.The staff are very friendly and have been there for the 8years we have been comming there.Breakfast has a good choice of cold or cooked food and evening meals were really good. The best new thing we found was the free Wifi all over the hotel,particularly in our room as the router was outside it.
Only downside is no duvets , blankets and sheets which in the hot weather we had was a nightmare!
Swanage is a typical seaside place that hadn't changed for years but with a beautiful safe bay to swim in, ice creams and seaside cafes who could ask for more?We will come again and again.
