A quirky style hotel - very modern lodge to the rear of lovely gardens, a large dining area in a greenhouse style building, and a lovely old style building at the front. Very comfortable rooms in the lodge, friendly staff at the bar and at breakfast. A 5 minute walk down into Swanage.

Our second time, a Christmas gift from our children. The hotel is a joy, traditional, quiet, friendly and welcoming. We stayed in Louisa Lodge, quiet, clean and perfectly located in the High Street with a rooftop sea view. We love the place and will return whenever we get the chance. Top class staff and service.
