“Excellent quality, central location”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

I highly recommend staying at Town Hall Lodge. Clive and Judie were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Everything was high quality, the bed was comfy, rooms very clean and good attention to detail. The breakfast was fantastic, fresh local produce, cooked to order and very filling. The central location made it easy to get around the town. I would happily return to this well run B&B.

We arrived early and were met by the friendly face of Judie and invited in for tea and cake. From that moment onwards everything was just right. The room was clean, airy and fresh. The breakfasts were superb and everything was cooked to order. We parked the car for free just around the corner and didn't need to touch it for the rest of the week as Town Hall Lodge is well sited. We will certainly come back here again.

Having stayed at Town Hall Lodge 3 times now, there is nowhere else I would book when coming to Swanage.

From the comfortable beds and clean rooms through to the incredible breakfasts cooked fresh to order, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The lovely courtyard outside was perfect for a nice 'away from centre' feel to enjoy a glass of wine whilst still only being 100 metres from the beach!

The hosts, Clive and Judie, are welcoming from the offset, their local knowledge is very helpful when planning days out and they make you feel comfortable in their own home, which having stayed at various B&B's along the coast I find a rarity.

Looking forward to our next trip already!

I stayed for a couple of days R&R to go sea fishing. Judy looked after me so well... tea and cake on arrival, a packed lunch to take fishing that was more of a hamper, and the best B&B Breakfast ever! To top it off Judy froze the fish I had caught so could take them home on the train! I hope to return with my wife one day. Top notch customer service and value for money. Many thanks.. I am back to work feeling refreshed!

We stayed for 2 nights at the Town Hall Lodge, I have been to Swanage quite a few times as a kid and remembered it very well. The parking is an issue, but if you do your home work or recall the town centre, you will be prepared and infact you can park 5 mins away for free.
The room, albeit slightly small (but served our needs) was immaculate and very clean. The bed was super comfy and I would love to find out what type mattress that was as I want one!
The breakfast was delicious and set us up for the day. There was a wide choice and cater for most, if not all tastes.
Clive and Judie were very friendly and helpful and we loved the kitchen!... It's good you are able to see what's going on in there. Thank you for a lovely stay

We were made to feel welcome and although there is no on-sight parking Judie was extremely helpful in advising us of the best places to park. The room was spacious and immaculately clean with a good range of toiletries. We were impressed with how large and comfortable our bed was! The breakfast area was a delight to sit in and the food was faultless, offering cereal, fruit etc as well as an expertly cooked full English made with quality products (fresh coffee was also delicious.) Clive and Judie are friendly and made us feel at home. Wonderful stay and will definitely return.

We stayed here for one night and were delighted with the beautiful room and delicious breakfast. Every little thing was provided including some lovely toiletries. We couldn't decide what to have at breakfast there was so much choice. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We had the panel room which was really pretty.
