Stayed here recently on a golfing trip with 3 mates. Good location (although street parking only, so spaces a bit scarce) very clean with good facilities. Excellant breakfast and really nice service. Would highly reccommend

Stayed here for 2 nights with some friends for WILDLIFE Festival which was fab! As there were three of us we shared a family room which was one double room with a joining single room. The room was very nice and felt very spacious. Loved the shutters and the jammy dodger tea cups - was a nice touch. The lady... More

Terry was a wonderful hostess and made fantastic scrambled eggs for breakfast. Clean, warm, quiet, securewondergully hot power shower, great location for the seafront, Kemptown, the Lanes and lots of nearby restaurants. Only negative was the mattress was a bit hard for our taste, but each to their own. Parking permits £10 for 24hours which works well, so long as... More

Your hosts Terry and her husband Andrew both make your stay at the Amblecliffe, Terry for the warmth of her welcome and Andrew for the superb cooking of your breakfast! It is a while since I had stayed in a B&B and had forgotten the joy of the personnel touch they can offer - you will feel truly at home... More

Lovely B&B, would highly recommend. Great hosts, very friendly and welcoming. We had room 9, was a lovely spacious room, very modern. Lovely big bathroom and the bed was so comfy. Breakfast was lovely, great choice. Good location for the beach, city centre and bars. My only criticism is my first impression when arriving. As said in another review the... More

Amblecliff is in a street of many small hotels and guest houses and, in some respects, doesn't stand out - indeed the canopy over the front door could do with being replaced. But the welcome inside and the interior décor sets it apart. Whilst I may have been the only paying guest at Christmas they couldn't do enough for me!... More

Stayed for one night and I would recommend staying here. Great location just a 5 minute walk into town and a 2 minute walk to the beach. The rooms are very nice, with a great powerful shower the whole place has been tastefully decorated. Breakfast was very nice and unhurried. It is not cheap but I only stayed one night... More
