Quiet, friendly and good views
Excellent friendly service. Decor a bit tired and some minor room faults. Food good and cellar and bar well stocked. Good local walks and beaches. Dog friendly. Small indoor pool and steam room.

Charming hotel, amazing location
We love Knoll House - it’s comfortable, in an amazing location with stunning views and lovely walks. The hotel is slightly tired but has a lovely atmosphere and loads to do - table tennis, board games, even a cinema room. We’ve discovered something new every time we go. The staff are brilliant and the breakfasts are a big highlight. The restaurant is good and the food is as good as local pubs and good value. But the absolute best thing is the location and the stunning views.

Highly recommended
Great hotel, excellent location, we will definitely return. It's in a quiet spot but close to the beach and to Swanage with some lovely walks nearby. All dog friendly. Staff are friendly and helpful and the hotel had a relaxed atmosphere. Older style but well maintained and clean. Excellent breakfast. The room was a great size with a terrace. Highly recommended

Don’t waste your money !!
went to cebrate new year’s eve. Was advised twice prior to arrival that the a la carte menu would be available and it wasn’t. There was a buffet. Within 20 minutes of buffet starting they had run out of several dishes. Staff were not interest. Each time we went to the bar to get a drink we had to ring a bell and then wait for some to arrive. Drinks were expensive. Rooms were very dated and although bed was clean, the room had cobwebs and the bathroom was mouldy. This was our 3 stay and we had given similar feedback before , obviously they have not listened to what we said before. We won’t be returning
