We arrived late Saturday afternoon for a one night stay and was greeted by the owner David Cole who made us feel very welcome and was obviously proud to tell us that they had just been awarded 5 stars by the AA. David told us that they had recently started to do evening meals other than on Saturday evenings. Having enjoyed a fabulous breakfast the following morning we unfortunately needed to continue our journey without being able to sample an evening meal which was a disappointment! The deco is very modern and we particularly liked the dining room and bar. Our room was compact but very clean with tasteful furnishings. Our bathroom was a bit on the small side with a shower that seemed to suffer from low water pressure. However overall a lovely hotel and we had a very pleasant short stay. We did venture in to Swanage the following morning which looked quite sleepy uninspiring place although David had previously explained that had we been staying longer their was some very good walks in the area. We do intend to return one day and stay longer and would recommend to anyone who is wants a hotel with the personal touch. We would have scored 5 other than for the size of the bathroom with the inclusion of a bath.
