About Town Hall Lodge

The Town Hall Lodge is nestled down a quaint little lane right in the centre of Swanage. Genial owners, tasty breakfasts and well-appointed rooms are the hallmarks of this charming, Victorian-era B&B.

The hotel has just four guest rooms, all of which have light modern decor and hypoallergenic beds. Flat-screen TVs, DVD players and tea/coffee-making facilities are also standard features. One room has a shower cubicle in the actual room.

Guests can relax out on a patio which adorns the historic, cobblestone front yard. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout.

A selection of cooked and continental breakfast options are offered each day in an airy, wood-floored dining room connected to an open kitchen. Numerous cafes, restaurants, pubs and takeaways are located close by.

The Town Hall Lodge is a three-minute walk from both the quayside and Swanage’s revered heritage railway. The beach is a five-minute stroll away.

Positive Reviews

Location is spot on

This hotel is located just off the High Street so it's a very easy walk to everything you'd want to see in the town. In fact, neither the beach, the quayside nor the wonderful steam railway are more than a five-minute saunter away.

Very nice guest rooms

Fresh, modern and as clean as a whistle; the accommodations here really are step up from many of the offerings you tend to get at English seaside B&Bs nowadays. The Panel Room, with its charming original Victorian wood-panelling is the arguably the pick of the bunch.

Impressive breakfast selection

You really are spoilt for choice here at breakfast time with everything from continental and full English to fish and gluten-free options offered, all of which are freshly cooked and made with locally-sourced products.

Negative Reviews

Not a place for kids

Unfortunately, this is not the place to come if you're a parent with little ones in tow; the Town Hall Lodge doesn't accommodate guests under the age of 16.

Pretty strict breakfast and checking-in timings

This hotel has set times for breakfast and checking-in which - you'll soon realise - have to be abided by. In short, you get 45 minutes for breakfast (08.30-0915) and have a two-hour window for checking-in (16.00-18.00). Don't even think about checking out after the stipulated time of 10.30 - your wallet won't thank you!

But that's about it

It may not be perfect but it has to be said that that the Town Hall Lodge is, on the whole, a really rather lovely place to enjoy a traditional English seaside holiday (without the kids).
