"Excellent, but maybe only until September"
Picked the hotel at random last August for a long weekend break, and when the chance came up this time for 5 nights away we didn't even look at anywhere else. The overall quality is hard to fault for a small country hotel. The evening menu was good. We did however enjoy superb weather, but I don't think that had any effect on our opinions! Wish we could have stayed longer! Would be happy to recommend - but ONLY until end Sept (see below) Read less
Likes:
Excellent staff - warm, friendly, efficient and always keen to oblige. The bar is 'dog friendly' which we loved, but we are dog lovers. One evening there were a total of 7!
Dislikes:
The current ownership ceases in late September, and at least some of the excellent staff will be going at that time. This is a great disappointment, and it is impossible to know the effect of this.

I was pleased with the cleanliness and tidy presentation of a fairly basic double room. I would say that the hotel is in need of some TLC and upgrading to give it the warm welcoming ambiance that such a gorgeous building requires. We had a 2 night stay over a weekend Read less
Likes:
The staff were friendly and trying to do a great job in difficult circumstances. The building is stunning outside and in a great location for the village
Dislikes:
Phone calls were taken by the staff in the breakfast room, for all to hear,interrupting breakfast-then discussed with negativity. Not good to air problems in front of guests

We are a warm and friendly, traditional Inn, located in the heart of Corfe Castle on the beautiful Isle of Purbeck, Dorset. With a delicious, fresh menu, a varied, well stocked bar and ten welcoming bedrooms you'll be sure of a perfect visit to the Bankes Arms, whether you're just popping in for a quick pint or staying for a full week!

Inside we have a cosy and welcoming main bar area where you can have a cup of coffee and warm up on a cold winter day as well as two other rooms which are just right for sitting down to something tempting from our specials board on an evening out.

Outside we have a beautiful big garden laid out on a number of levels where you can enjoy a lunchtime sandwich and watch the Swanage Steam Trains go past while the children play on the climbing frame and swings. We also have a private car park.

Upstairs we have ten fully equipped, dog and child friendly bedrooms all of which have televisions and tea & coffee making facilities, some even have four-poster beds.
