The location provides lovely views across to the Isle of Wight - The Needles white cliff provide a wonderful change of colours if the weather is good and the sky is clear at sunset. The hotel does not look great on first external appearance but you are soon greeted by the friendly staff and guided to your room. We had a room at the opposite side to the sea but this gave pleasant views of the hills and a wonderful sunset.
The room was quite ok and the bath / shower functioned perfectly.
We decided to eat at the restaurant and were impressed by the quality of food achieved. Again the waiting staff are eager to please.
This was a short break to give the wife a few days away and we left vowing to come back again. Well done 'The Pines' - not cheap but we can't wait to go back again.
PS don't forget to go on the steam train from Swanage to Corfe Castle and beyond
