This was a return stay to Arbour House and again not disappointed at all. It's a beautiful B&B and hosts Sarah and Fraser are very welcoming and friendly. The rooms are a good size comfy beds and the en-suites are well equipped. Would recommend Arbour House to everyone.

Having spent a long weekend here we couldn't have wished for more comfort and good hospitality. Close to the beach and walking. Lovely comfy room and bed. Nothing too much trouble. Spotless rooms and excellent home cooking. Looking forward to our return visit next year. Free wifi Phil & Katie

Room was lovely with everything you needed, DVD's available downstairs in case you want a night in, short distance to the beach and town where there are lots of restaurants and pubs. Coastal walk is good to see Durlston Castle and great night sleep. Owners lovely and got a discount after visiting their website directly.
