Had a fantastic one night stay in a hotel I have admired and wanted to stay in for years and years on my many trips to Swanage. The hotel didn't disappoint. Beautiful room. A sea view of the whole bay. Listening to the waves at night and the lights of the bay just magical. Breakfast was excellent we had the...

After arriving in the afternoon we were very pleased to see the excellent sea view from our room. We had a glass of wine in the restaurant and then took a walk along the sea shore and later had dinner at a good restaurant named "Boat and Bull",

Having just stayed at The Grand Hotel with a party of ramblers, I have nothing but praise for the hotel and its staff. It is located in a quiet position looking out to sea but still only a short walk from the centre of town. Meals were delicious. Well thought out menus, attractively presented. The views from the bar and...

I stayed in the Grand Hotel as part of a group for 2 evenings. I was fortunate to have a room facing the sea (do ask for one when you book) and it was one of the few that even had a small terrace. The view from the room and terrace was stunning. The staff looked after us very well...

This is a very imposing building on the headland overlooking the whole of Swanage bay with views from the dining room and our room. The food was modern, very tasty, freshly cooked and varied with great choices for breakfast and evening meal. The beds were comfortable, with crisp white cotton sheets and pillow cases. We did not need the radiator...

I had the prawn and crayfish salad for lunch. It was an uninspired few mixed leaves out of a bag, and bits of pepper and cucumber, totally tasteless prawns and crayfish, the portion was a starter size not a main course size, very mean and not acceptable. It didn't come with any lemon, I had to find the waitress to...

We visited on a lovely sunny day and sat overlooking Swanage Bay. It was a very efficient service and the Afternoon Tea was delicious! The Tea was plentiful and rather filling, evidently all home made so nothing was frozen! Lovely wine list and overall wasn't actually that expensive. Would certainly recommend it!

As a walking group we stayed at this hotel for a long weekend in April. The food, service and views from hotel were superb. Lindsay, Manager made sure all our requirements were met.

Really enjoyed our time here. Lovely spot, amazing views and great location. They don't do BABY cots ? Which we didn't know and thus was a real issue !!! There is no where in swanage to buy one and as we weren't told we didn't bring our travel cot! Lift broke and 3rd floor room wasn't ideal in that case...
