Lovely staff, nice setting we would have preferred to stay in the main house rather than the lodge although it was clean and comfortable being given the option would have been nice. Very nice breakfast.

A really nice stay in an interesting building. Driving up towards the Hotel and realising that it was where we would be staying was fun, as it creates quite an imposing sight as you come up the hill. The location is great, the room was impressive and the staff were all very friendly indeed. And the breakfast in the morning...

Great High Street location. Minutes from the beach. Very comfy room with all amenities. Decor is a bit dated but no matter. Scrummy breakfast in the conservatory. Buffet of fruit, cereals, toast, meat, salmon and then full English. Very good value. We also had dinner in what was the chapel (hotel was a convent school in one of its many...

My friend and I stayed at this hotel as part of a walking group holiday. It's a delightful place with loads of original features to the main building of the hotel. Our room was in Louisa Lodge, a newer annexe to the hotel, a large room with space to unpack and unwind. Tea tray with biscuits replenished each day, and...

Perfect base for exploring Swanage and nearby area. Very accommodating hotel with friendly staff and good food. Large conservatory dining room at the back of the hotel which was good for us as we were there as a large group.

came to stay at the purbeck House hotel last night. We were greeted with a warm welcome and checkin was very easy. We stayed in a double room in the top of the house with stunning views across to the Isle of Wight. The room was spacious and well equipped, the room was exceptionally clean as were the communal areas....

Visited with a party of 14 for their Sunday carvery as a 60th birthday celebration. Staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. They even arranged to cut our birthday cakes and serve them in the lounge with coffee after the meal. Food was good and plentiful and the venue itself is amazing. Once the home of "the king...

A beautiful part of the world with a hotel to match. The staff were all very courteous, well presented and polite. The room was itself immaculate and warm to enter (which is a rarity this time of year). Breakfast was superb. I wish I had the local butchers in my town. From a parental point of view.

Few friends stayed the night here. Comfortable room in the Louisa Lodge, very spacious with large bed. A decent breakfast the morning after and right on the high street of Swanage. Good for the coast path and exploring the town and area.
