Stayed for an idyllic five day treat, it's so lovely to come here and feel looked after, it's not the most splendid looking building ever, but the service is terrific, the staff friendly and relaxed and the views from most of the rooms are to die for. We had room 18 this time, a lovely suite with a double bed room, a twin bed separate room, a nice large vestibule hallway with a huge wardrobe and a bathroom with bath and shower. The larger bedroom had a large patio style window leading onto a private balcony overlooking swanage bay and the second window looked out on the Purbeck hills. We enjoy the food here, the breakfasts are waiter service and offer a varied menu, the kippers and smoked haddock are lovely. We like buffet service but there is something about having your food bought to you that feels especially luxurious and pleasant. They cater very well for lunches and dinner is an occasion to dress up a little, if you want and enjoy an imaginative, tasty menu that caters solidly for all but the most pernickety diner and even these can usually be satisfied with a few special tweaks if requested. The Pines appeals to a wide range of ages and young children are often here and they too seem to enjoy the sense of occasion. It always seems very well maintained, even through the appalling rain and wind has taken its toll on so many sea front properties. We love it here and can't wait to return to laze around, be waited on and to go to sleep to the sound of the sea.
From Mr and Mrs Evans.
