The Pig on the Beach, Dorset

This turreted manor house occupies a prime position on the cliffs, along Dorset’s Jurassic Coast. Many reviews rave about this exclusive seaside stay, but did our inspectors feel the same way?

Overall score

We inspected The Pig on the Beach, a clifftop fairytale manor just off the Southwest Coast Path, in November 2018.

How we inspect hotels

Unlike all other national UK travel magazines and newspaper travel sections, Which? Travel never accepts freebies.

All of our hotel inspections take place anonymously. We book in to a standard double room online, just as you would, and we sample the hotel’s facilities, just as you would. We never let on that we are from Which?

That means no special treatment, no reviewer upgrades and no opportunity for the hotel to influence our verdict.

And no matter how badly the hotel fares, we will always publish the review, warts and all.

We do this, so you can make the most of your breaks, and avoid staying in places like the Royal Albion.
