In the centre of town along the High Street you can’t miss The Purbeck House Hotel as it’s an imposing gothic building, originally built in 1875 as a private home by the Victorian gentleman, George Burt.
The main house is decorated with artefacts that George Burt brought back from London including a tiled floor originally laid in the Houses of Parliament and statues from the Royal Exchange. As a hotel, it now has 18 characterful bedrooms and very ornate public areas including a grand entrance and lounge.
In 2003, additional accommodation was built in the large hotel grounds. Louisa Lodge was designed to blend in with the original house and it has 20 modern bedrooms.
The hotel is about a five minute walk from the bus station and a five minute walk in the opposite direction to the sea front.
