We come here at least twice a year and it is like coming home - nothing is too much trouble for Roger and Sue and there local knowledge is second to none!!! Roger's breakfasts are to die for and served in the lovely breakfast room. Plenty of off road parking, there were three

This hotel was a dream to stay in. The peaceful atmosphere in the bedroom allowed me to sleep soundly, which is rare for me. I fell asleep after gazing at the sea and hills. Then woke just in time to see the dawn break with the sun rising over the sea and hear the birds calling e

We booked last minute at The Hermitage as we made a spontaneous decision to stay overnight in Swanage. We called and were told they had a room for £75 for the night. Obviously being the sunniest weekend we have had in a while and not having much luck with other b&bs in town we ch

thank you for taking the time to write your review however i would like to clarify some of the negative issues.i spoke to your boyfriend who made the late booking when i clearly stated the room was not en-suite but situated next door to the bathroom, i don,t advertise any facilities that i can,t offer either by internet or verbal enquiries. the dated interior you mentioned is your personal opinion which we are all entitled to, we like to think of it being olde world charm as previous reviewers have stated. the musty smell on arrival is abit of a puzzle as i always have a vase of fresh flowers on the hallstand picked from my pretty garden. the fragrance very floral, personal taste i suppose? the bathrooms are cleaned regularly, however i can,t be expected to follow every guest after use, you did arrive well into the evening and must have been unfortunate. the doors are regulation fire requirements and on very warm nights when opened wide they are designed to slam closed, i am an extremley light sleeper and wasn,t disturbed at all. regarding being desperate for the loo, there was alternative toilets you could have used. when i knocked on your door to say breakfast was being served your response was, you wearn,t feeling very well, so i left you in peace. when on your arrival you would have spoken of any of the issues i can assure you i definatly would have returned your money, with a smiley, friendly face that i have. i hope the next sunny day you have in swanage you both enjoy more.
