Lovely hotel with great people. Felt really relaxed. Nice bar area and cheaper than the local pubs. Plenty of car parking spaces. Really near to the town and beach. Ideal base for a holiday. Stopped in Louisa Lodge and had a room with a balcony and a sea room. Bed really comfortable. Nice and clean.

Centrally located in Swanage and just a few minutes walk from the sea front. We stayed in the lodge and found the rooms a good size and had everything we needed for a weekend. The grounds are picturesque and offer a relaxing area when the sun is out. The staff seemed friendly and helpful and there is onsite parking. I...

We stayed in Louisa lodge in a family room. The only good thing I can say is the location which is very convenient for the shops and seafront. However, the rest was very disappointing. We were not given a wi-fi code by reception upon check in, which was not professional. The room was dated and old - it is stuck...

Firstly let me say I had been going to visit last summer but broke my foot the day before and had to go straight home to A&E. They let me keep my deposit to book another time..and this was it. A couple of days on Jurassic Coast on way to Somerset. So I was grateful they did this and they...

We stayed here a couple of nights as part of a post-Easter trip to the Jurassic Coast. Our room was on the top floor so we could just see the sea over the rooftops of the town. It was very spacious with doubt aspect views over the town and the gardens to the rear. The bed was comfortable and the...

Very enjoyable stay. Comfortable room, helpful staff, excellent location close to centre of Swanage, plenty of parking space and excellent breakfast. But the highlight was the evening meal in the restaurant, which was truly outstanding. One of the best meals we have had for a long time. The French chef clearly took great pride in his work. The steak was...

Just got home from a very chilled Easter break at Purbeck House Hotel. We stayed in Louisa Lodge, which is really convenient for the car park. We had a ground floor room with big windows overlooking the garden. The room was spacious and included a tea tray that was topped up each day. If you are looking for a contemporary...

This is a beautiful historical building with a large garden which is amazing on a sunny day. Overall we had a very good time. There is a restaurant inside the hotel which is also good (be aware that they do not reserve places for guests so in busy days you need to book - we couldn't find place on Easter)....
