My wife and I stayed at this b&b in Swanage for two nights. The room was spot on. Lovely clean and tidy. The little touches around the room were perfect. A simple thing like a bottle opener is very thoughtful. The breakfast was top notch, try the spicy black pudding.... A nice warm and welcoming place. Many thanks.

Comfortable, quiet, owner upheld cheaper price. Breakfast very good too. Close shops and beach i.e. about 10 minutes stroll. Also close to railway and bus stations but be assured there was no noise from these. Off road parking was available for one car but as the road was quiet there was on road parking but we did stay outside of... More

Sarah and Frazer were very helpful with advise on what to do around the area. The house is very "homey", warm (we went during winter time) and clean. We did not have a car but the location of the house is very convenient- a few minutes away from the center of town. Definitely a good place to stay!

Following advice from fellow morris-dancers who had stayed there before, we were lucky to exploit a cancellation and stayed at this B&B in September 14 for the folk festival. It was a marvellous experience. Firstly, it was extremely conveniently sited just a few blocks away from the beach and our beach-hut, the festival site and one of the main roads... More

Arbour house is an excellent place to stay in Swanage, near the beach front and also close to the small city centre. Sarah and Fraser were welcoming and very friendly. My room was capacious, clean and in a very good condition. The breakfast was very good. In conclusion, I will say it felt almost as staying in a private home.

We really enjoyed our stay at Arbour House. Sarah and Fraser were welcoming and helpful. The room we stayed in was modern and clean. The location was great. 5 mins to the beach and 10 mins to the town. Would recommend it to everyone!

I stayed at Arbour House for one night en route across the country and was delighted by the welcome I received, the well furnished and comfortable room and the superb breakfast the following morning. So much so, that I have booked 4 nights for a group of friends next year.

Had a great stay at Arbour, room was really good, quiet and well out-fitted. Situated v short walk from the sea-front and easy to find. Parking was available just next door and on-street, but we always found a spot next door. Breakfast was nice and proprietors friendly and helpful. Recommended restaurants were helpful and proved nice. Would stay here again... More
