Stayed here for 4 nights. We were welcomed by Sarah and Frazer (who very kindly lugged our cases up the stairs for us) and shown to Room 5. Lovely, spacious twin room, with 2 very good-sized single beds in. Plenty of storage - wardrobe with coat hangers, lots of drawers. Lovely clean shower room with toiletries provided. Breakfasts were superb... More

Stayed in Swanage for a wedding & Arbour House looked great online, backed up by good reviews. We weren't disappointed- room was spotless, modern & fresh. Bathroom, although small (bijou?!) was also very clean and nicely done. Wonderful soft towels! Breakfast & the hospitality from Sarah & Frazer were both excellent. Location also perfect for the town, beach, walks etc... More

We stayed for 2 nights at Arbour B & B. It's a very comfortable place to stay and Sarah and Frazer made us very welcome. Delicious breakfast choices - the scrambled eggs and smoked salmon made a lovely change from the usual full English (although this is also available). Arbour B & B is easy to find - just outside...

Excellent room with TV. Good shower and lovely non greasy breakfast. Owners Sarah and Fraser very pleasant and friendly. I'm sure we were lucky and booked one of the best in Swanage. I think anyone would be happy staying here. If we need accommodation in Swanage this would be our first call.

First time here for us and a pleasant experience all round. Our room was comfortable, clean and well equipped and the welcome was just that - welcoming. Bathroom was a little cramped for me, over 6' but perfectly serviceable. Break fast was very good with enough variety to satisfy me on full English and my fruit eating wife. Frazer and... More
