Purbeck House Hotel, Swanage
needs an update
The hotel is great but the room was a huge let down. The bed was extremely uncomfortable needing replacement, and the room needed a good cleaning. The public areas are gorgeous, the views are panoramic, the staff are attentive, and the breakfast was delicious.

Nice hotel, room and lovely and quiet.
Lovely hotel, comfortable room and bed. Only downside was breakfast, I asked for poached eggs on toast. Unfortunately, the eggs arrived on soggy wet toast, I assume they were not drained on a paper towels before being placed on the toast. Overall, a nice stay.

Great Place, Good Food, Excellent Service-Car Park
I stayed alone in a single room in the main building. This was on the weekend (Fri-Sun) of the snow and ice which thawed Sat eve and Sun. The staff were marvellous and service excellent. The buffet breakfast was pretty good, masses of "starter" selection with "Full English" plenty to choose from. Not too sure about how a Vegan would fare but I suspect with request would be served well, with a wait. I had some mushrooms done "non-dairy" instead of usual butter. I felt cold in my bedroom on the Saturday when I returned for an afternoon nap as there was no heating on. Once I later complained the situation was rectified immediately. So it is clear that this hotel will respond well to any request from their guests. I would stay here again.

Ideal location
Very happy to recommend this hotel which is Ideally located in Swanage. No restaurant for dinner but plenty locally within walking distance. The Red Lion does a Friday night special of 2 steaks & usual accompaniments & 1 bottle of wine for £25.50.
