Ticked the box
Booked last minute due to a family issue. Room in annex comfy if not a tad bland, could do with pictures in the wall. Breakfast not included in the room rate but would have been nice to have been offered it when checking in. Lovely grounds & close to centre of swanage.

Purbeck House Hotel
Quirky old fashioned hotel which we both loved. It’s a bit run down in places but certainly clean and comfortable. Marvellous gardens and it’s right in the centre of town. Staff were a happy helpful bunch. We really enjoyed our stay

Lovely friendly staff who were very attentive. We were upgraded from the lodge to the main house. We were very late checking in but were made very welcome on arrival. Excellent service in an interesting hotel in a great area

10/10 Exceptional

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.
