Needs redecorating and in Louisa Lodge can hear people (snoring) in adjacent rooms.
Central location in Swanage, very good free private parking.

The bed was a little bit soft for my liking.
Pleasant, cheerful staff. Lots of free on site parking. Close to the town centre & beach. A very nice breakfast.

Two minor things: Mattress was a bit soft - OK for a couple of days, but back-pain sufferers would have difficulty with longer stays. Bedroom was a touch chilly - the convection heater took a while to make a difference.
Location, view from Louisa Lodge, excellent staff. Fabulous décor in the original building and an amazing garden.

Long outdoor trek from my room to the main house; lack of instructions for unfamiliar digital bedside clock/radio & TV; faulty double-glazed window obscured outlook; some public areas not regularly vacuumed.
Its central location; interesting architecture; beautiful gardens; excellent breakfasts.

On a particularly windy night, the windows rattled a bit, but this only kept me awake for a little while.
To start the day, my room in the main building had a bath with a shower, which gave a useful choice. Then there was plenty of choice at breakfast, which had an early start and a late finish. One thing that I particularly liked was the back entrance to the hotel, giving quick access to roads on the higher levels of the town and the road to Durlston Country Park. Both the bus/train station and the seafront were just a few minutes walk away.

Breakfast was just right. A good selection.

The décor of the main building is a bit gloomy, perhaps by trying to use Victorian-style wallpaper. Lighten it up!
Relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff, historic building, tranquil surroundings in the heart of town.
16 August 2014
Very little atmosphere. The foreign staff did not really interact with guests which would have been nice
A very peaceful and quiet hotel.

The shower - it doesn't give you control where the water goes.
Not having any planes going over my head, the central position, the closeness to the beach
9 August 2014
Staff were friendly, place is so near the seafront and handy for walks and Swanage itself. The hotel is stunning

20 June 2014
Rooms in the Louisa Lodge are very poor acoustically - constant banging of neighbours doors and tv were loud enough to kept us awake and I am usually a heavy sleeper. The fire doors are heavy and if left to bang can really be heard especially if next door.
location and character of hotel and friendly staff
