Fabulous stay at this very clean and COVID secure hotel. The view over Swanage Bay is beautiful and the staff could not have been more helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to base themselves in a good location to visit the Jurassic Coast.

very lovely hotel in great location
We had a lovely stay at the Pines hotel. We were very surprised that the family rooms are actually a suite with 2 separate bedroom, which is good when you have little ones that need to go to bed early. our son had his own room and that was more comfortable than having an extra bed in the same room. the rooms were beautifully decorated and very comfortable. we enjoyed the evening drinks in the lounge overlooking the see. the breakfasts were really delicious, and we had diner in the restaurant once, very lovely food. the staff is very nice and polite, and are taking very good care of their customer. it's a little bit expensive to stay there, but really worth every penny. we will definately go back again if we plan another holiday in the area.

Stayed in the Suite for 2 nights and couldn’t have asked for much more. Was a great room with an even better view. An easy walk along to beach to the local town with plenty of food options.

October half term at Swanage,
The staff tried to make the experience as normal as possible. Lovely views from the front window which were enjoyed during breakfast, and dinner and in the day. Relaxing lounge area which was much appreciated after the tough walk back up the stairs from the beach. Family room was clean and it was good to have a separate bedroom within the family room for our child to give him and us some privacy.
