We had a warm welcome and shown to our room. It was clean and bright. We explained we had to leave before breakfast was served. They kindly offered us an earlier toast and cereal breakfast which we accepted. Very close to town centre and seafront.

Stayed for a night, it's clean tidy, quality bedding, right in the centre, parking, tea & biscuits, good breakfast (he's keen every one gets toast!) Probably should have slightly less furniture in the room but it was nice. Oh yeah and he catered for dairy allergies. Would happily stay again. Thanks!

Full English breakfast was lovely and was freshly cooked. All in all the Amberlea was a great family run B&B that ticked all... More

Excellent place for a break. Clare and Martin made us feel welcome. A short walk to Swanage beach and town. Our room was very good and well presented. I would recommend Amberlea for short breaks and longer stays.

A great bed and breakfast in a wonderful location, only a few minutes walk from the beach and town centre. A very clean, lovely room and great breakfast choices too. The hosts were very friendly, polite and helpful and I would definitely stay again.

Stayed for two nights at Amberlea and as in a previous visit, the room was well equipped, spotlessly clean and had a nice welcoming beverage tray. Breakfast was excellent in choice, quality and quantity with good service. Fine way to start the day. I would advise ringing to book a room so you can discuss your requirements with the proprietor...
