Location, view from Louisa Lodge, excellent staff. Fabulous décor in the original building and an amazing garden.
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.
Its central location; interesting architecture; beautiful gardens; excellent breakfasts.
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.
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.
On a particularly windy night, the windows rattled a bit, but this only kept me awake for a little while.
Breakfast was just right. A good selection.
Relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff, historic building, tranquil surroundings in the heart of town.
The décor of the main building is a bit gloomy, perhaps by trying to use Victorian-style wallpaper. Lighten it up!
A very peaceful and quiet hotel.
Very little atmosphere. The foreign staff did not really interact with guests which would have been nice
Not having any planes going over my head, the central position, the closeness to the beach
The shower - it doesn't give you control where the water goes.
Staff were friendly, place is so near the seafront and handy for walks and Swanage itself. The hotel is stunning
Friendly Staff Comfortable bed Good breakfast
Room was not very clean - lots of cobwebs and bathroom floor quite stained.
Room was comfortable and clean, hotel staff were friendly and helpful.
The room was clean and the location good for the town
The decor was very dated in the Louisa Lodge and the breakfast wasn't great.
nice location (5 min from the seafront) rooms are clean and good breakfast.
Location to the town centre and the beach excellent lovely grounds polite staff nice clean room would recommend to others will definitely book again
Bed was a little bit uncomfortable but not to bad
Lovely gardens, spacious, good position, good sea view
Room fittings very dated Breakfast is awful
building historical, scenery, garden, nature.
no safe in the rooms we had to carry our belongings with us.
A lovely friendly hotel, well located within easy walk of shops, sea and restaurants breakfast good and beds very comfy. Sea view was wonderful.
location and character of hotel and friendly staff
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.
Lovely old building, close to town.Ample parking, friendly staff, rooms clean and adequate. lovely gardens to wander around, ideal spot to stay if visiting Swanage.
Liked it all.....
Location and grounds Food good
Very dated and we were in the new building which was decorated like the old one. Bed dipped in middle so found ourselves both rolling towards it during night
Being in the town centre with parking
Was very run down had seen better days
Lovely location and building, we liked the lodge very much and the gardens surrounding. All the staff were very freindly and helpful.
Only a very minor negative, it's obvious with an old building that it takes a lot of up keep, the pavillion was looking slightly jaded with so many misty windows.
We were very impressed by this hotel,not only for the location but the general appearance and cleanliness. Would definitely stay again
Location was perfect, the old house and conservatory looked great had a good old time feel about it, the lodge has been done to a good standard, gardens well kept and still being maintained.
