The lunch is very good value with exceptional sea views. If you enjoy crisp linen tablecloths & napkins and excellent service, then this is the place to visit. The food is delicious and beautifully presented.

The hotel's stunning location on the cliffs overlooking Swanage bay, certainly was the highlight of our stay. We had a room overlooking the sea, which was clean and tidy. We also had an evening meal in the restaurant, food quality was excellent although perhaps the service was a little too efficient with no break between courses so it seemed a...

My Son (19) and I were attending a nearby party and to my surprise, given the amazing walks nearby, very few hotels accepted pets. The booking was made very easy by the friendly staff and on arrival check in was welcoming. We had a large family room with balcony and fabulous views. When we go back maybe I will try...
