It is not generally a favorable prospect to take an aged parent and mother-in-law away for the New Year but this time - 2016 to 2017 -was an exception in the case of The Pines in Swanage. Spotlessly clean with fabulous sea views across the bay and to the Isle of Wight the Pines put on a great show for...

We discovered this hotel through my uncle who is a regular visitor. We had a downstairs room which had a patio door opening on to a fenced garden. Steps take you down to the beach. The food was delicious and plenty of choice. We went half board!

Stayed in November to celebrate my dad's 80th birthday. The hotel is well situated with fantastic sea views and free parking although it's rather a long walk to the main attractions . Staff are really friendly and helpful particularly when we needed an ambulance for my mum. The building is rather dated however the restaurant food was sublime both at...

We stayed here during Christmas this year whilst visiting family. The staff are friendly & helpful. The Lounge Bar overlooking the beach & garden is very pleasant. The food was excellent, very generous portions & the service was efficient, waiters very accommodating. The bedroom overlooking the beach was fairly small but quite comfortable, clean & warm. The Christmas hot/cold buffet...

Been a while since our last visit to the Pines, but we stayed for 3 nights recently and our experience was outstanding. The staff were so helpful and friendly. Also, whilst we have always enjoyed the breakfast here, we particularly like the fact that you can have fish; either haddock or a kipper, on this occasion we stayed half board....

Expensive for a 2 day break, but reduces for subsequent days, so much better value for longer stays. Wine, one bottle of house red at £18-50 and one bottle of Petit Chabis at £30. The 2 night d,b&b rate of £396, plus a tip and morning paper made our bill £456 (228 per day out of season). On the first...

My wife booked a surprise birthday weekend for us, plus our 2 dogs, at the Pines in Nov 2016. Room 9 was excellent; a ground floor room with large patio doors onto a grassed area; ideal for both the dogs and us. View was terrific, directly out to the Isle of Wight with Swanage Bay to the right and Ballard...
