5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Arrival was smooth. Checked-in, given room....because I had stayed there before I knew the hotel layout.... I asked if I could have a room closer to the parking lot because I was going to use my car often. Reception was polite and quickly reallocated me to a room of my choice. Room was very clean and well appointed. Only meal (due to covid) offered was breakfast and it was very good. Overall very happy with stay.

Good independent Swanage hotel
We stayed in the Louisa Lodge section of the hotel while visiting Swanage for a friend's surprise birthday party. The hotel's location is convenient for the seafront and town centre shops, restaurants and bars. The main hotel has some interesting features, especially the mosaic flooring and there are several mature evergreens in the garden area. The bed and room were very clean and comfortable. At night it was quiet so a decent night's sleep is possible. Breakfast is currently table service in a large conservatory area of the main hotel with a range of cold and freshly cooked options. There is a small bar where we were able to sample the Dorset artisan Conker and Pothecary gins. The hotel's greatest asset is its staff who were all very helpful and personable. When visiting Swanage again this would be my go to hotel.
