We really enjoyed our stay at Arbour house. Sarah and Fraser are great hosts - happy to answer any questions and provide recommendation, but not intrusive. breakfast was ample and very good. I would definitely return however I would request a room at the back / upstairs as the porch light illuminates the front downstairs bedroom.

As part of a trip to the nearby Swanage Railway we decided to book a couple of nights at the Arbour House. On arrival the exterior looked very pleasant and tidy, as we arrived we were greeted by Frazer, very warm welcome as we were shown our room and offered for our bags to be brought up. The room was...

We stayed here for a couple of nights recently. Very pleasant room - bright and airy and overlooking a nice garden. Smallish but perfectly adequate bathroom with particularly good shower. Excellent breakfasts. It's not totally central but this was preferable for us as it's only a 5/10 minutes' walk, taking in nice sea views. There's no designated parking but we...

Stayed one night only for an event at Swanage Railway. At peak times they dopn't do one night stays understandably enough. I'm glad we have found this place, so much better than others we have stayed in before in the town. Next time we'll try to book here first. Completely satisfied with all aspects.

We have recently spent three nights at this B&B in Swanage. The building is an old Town House to the north of the town centre which is a ten minute walk away. The beach is less than a 5 minute walk. The accommodation is very well kept, our room was spotless, the beds comfy and the bathroom well appointed. The...

We wanted a few days away from the our busy lives and the Arbour House Bed & Breakfast certainly gave us this. In a great location, just a short walk from cute country pubs, beautiful Purbeck scenery and local amenities. Sarah and her husband welcomed us and made us feel very at home, right from the off. Nothing was too...

Stayed for a couple of nights, the people there were extremely friendly and helpful too. They offered to help with the luggage, the rooms were clean and tidy and the breakfast was delicious! If I had to give something to improve, I'd say better mattresses would be needed as the one we had was quite hard and I woke up...

Lovely and peaceful accommodation, and really close to the town centre of Swanage. Excellent hosts and scrumptious breakfast! The room was gorgeous and some lovely touches to make it the perfect, blissful retreat next to the seaside.
