The room was on the ground floor and was very clean and tidy. Bathroom a little small but again very clean. Food at breakfast was excellent and hosts had provided a wide range of experiences for us to try including food in the area. Sarah and Fraser were very helpful and good hosts.

Stayed at Arbour House on the recommendation of a friend. It is situated a short walk from Swanage seafront, with ample on road parking. Sarah and Fraser are great hosts. The accommodation is very comfortable and spotlessly clean. We had a large double room, with ensuite bathroom. It had probably the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept in. Lots...

Excellent comfortable en-suite accommodation in a quiet location within easy walking distance of the beach and town centre. Our room overlooked the garden and had far reaching views. Breakfast was delicious offering anything you could think of and certainly set you up for the day! Thank you to Sarah & Frazer.

Walking the SW Coast Path we needed a warm welcome, comfortable bed and hearty breakfast. And that's exactly what Sarah & Frazer offer. It's a very laid back B&B with great attention to detail - spotlessly clean & comfortable. Great choice at breakfast with fresh fruit salad & warm croissants as well as the usual cooked choice & veggie sausages...

I booked a two night stay at Arbour House B&B for my daughter and myself - we were walking a section of the South-West Coast Path for my 50th birthday and wanted a central base to return to. We know Swanage well - we were delighted with Arbour House's central location close to the beach and the town centre -...

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.
