Must go to Swanage on the local bus. The scenery is beautiful and going on the ferry is so special .The hotel is in such a good position, near the cliff tops and handy to walk into Bournemouth. Staff are all helpful and can't do enough to make your stay pleasant in every way.

The hotel, although in need of some refurbishment is clean and the rooms (in terms of cleanliness) of a very high standard. Near to the bus routes and about 200m or so from...

We went with 2 other couples and got a fantastic deal for a 4-day break at this hotel; and we are still trying to work out how they do it for the price we paid! The rooms themselves are badly in need of updating - we had dodgy showers and well-worn furniture.. But from the top floor, there is a...
