10/10 Exceptional

Short break
Too short to fully appreciate the fitness centre, walk down to the beach and sitting out in the garden. We need to come back for a much longer stay.

Grand Hotel Swanage - a hidden treasure.
Picked this hotel by chance- lovely hotel, very clean and a great location. Friendly, flexible and helpful staff and good food. The bathroom in our large family room looked newly refurbished with a great shower. My only advice is leave the thermals at home it was very warm in the room. Overall a great discovery and we will be back.

Difficulties but would go again
Staff were great - the lift was broken so glad we were on the first floor - because of staffing issues it was not easy to book for dinner and room cleaning was every other day - but despite those issues would definitely go again

6/10 Good

Although the views from the hotel are very nice, the hotel itself is very old-fashioned. On the day I stayed, the lift was out of order, the restaurant was shut due to staff shortages, the pool closed at 5pm (even with booking in only being from 4pm). The rooms have no a/c, but there was a noisy fan unit outside the window, meaning that the windows had to stay shut to keep the noise out. Also the bar was very expensive. Overall it was not worth the money.
