Lovely B&B with very pleasant owners who are there to help you. My wife and I stayed for 2 nights and it had everything we required. The rooms are of a high standard and very cosy. And the breakfast keeps you going for a long time. The location is just right for the town or the beach. My wife and... More

The breakfast has good choices eg, full English or smoke salmon and eggs! Plus great flavoured fruit salad and yogurt. Thanks to our host Sarah. We shall tell our... More

Thanks to Sarah and Frazer for a lovely welcoming stay. We stayed for 5 nights and found the location, room and hospitality perfect. If you want somewhere which is comfortable, close to the beach then look no further. We would highly recommend the Arbour House and will be returning. The Arbour House is a high quality bed and breakfast, with... More

Our third time with Sarah and Frazer - always for the Swanage Jazz Festival in July. This year it was 11th - 14th so 3 nights at Arbour House. As we have realised previously, the location is excellent for where we want to be over the weekend. The room is very comfortable and breakfast is substantial which means that lunch... More

We recently went to a wedding in the Swanage area and needed a place to stay for two nights. We booked Arbour House and struck gold. Good location, attractive house, nicely decorated, a very comfortable room and spotlessly clean. A proper breakfast with plenty of selection and friendly hosts. A great place to stay if you're in the area and... More

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
