The house is an elegant Edwardian property in which the rooms have been carefully modernised to offer all mod cons! It's in a superb location-in a quiet street just a minute's walk to the seafront...

Swanage is very much a popular holiday destination, but myself and a colleague were working nearby, so we chose Arbour House as a place to stay for 3 nights. We were in the twin room, were able to get an earlier breakfast due to work commitments and there are plenty of places to park the works van too. Lovely B... More

We were a party of 8 on a Dorset walking weekend. Arbour House ticked all the boxes for us - good big breakfast to keep us going all day, very clean and comfortable house, good location, and Sarah and Frazer are very friendly and accommodating owners....and even arranged glorious weather for us, so what's not to like?

My husband and I booked a last minute room at Arbour House B&B in May 2014 and we were really pleased with the room, price and breakfast. We totally recommend this to anyone who likes to be close to the sea, only a few minutes walk to the beach. We booked a double room and we felt it was well... More

Really loved this place, stayed in many 4* B&Bs in Swanage but this one I will definitely return to. Arbour is very modern, rooms (rm 4) are big square modern decor rooms with amenities that should be provided for today's modern traveller requirements.
