We are staying in the Grand Hotel on the northern side of Swanage. All rooms are en-suite, with flat screen television, tea and coffee making facilities and free Wi-Fi. It is on four floors and has a small lift serving all floors.

It has a garden at the back with a flight of steps leading down to a private beach. There is a health spa and jacuzzi, which includes a heated swimming pool, which guests can use free of charge.


There is a small private car park at the front of the hotel, but we will probably not all be able to find spaces. There is limited on-street parking nearby. If necessary you can park in a public car park about 5 minutes walk away at a cost of 6 for 24 hours, which the hotel should refund.


There is a licensed bar, and you should not bring your own drinks.


We have booked on a half-board basis. Breakfast will be from 0745 and 3 course dinner at 1900 each day. There is a reasonable choice of menu for dinner, but if you have an allergy, please let Linda know in good time so that your needs can be catered for.

Evening Activities

It is likely that one of our group will organise a quiz or other evening activity.
