A perfect getaway in beautiful surroundings with great hosts and excellent breakfast. We stayed at the Bankside for a short break and enjoyed all that Suffolk had to offer. Tony and Elaine were the perfect hosts, with homemade cakes, locally sourced breakfasts and amazing local knowledge. See Suffolk in a new light and experience what is meant by staying with... More

My wife and I stayed at 'Bankside' over the August Bank Holiday weekend to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary and we had a wonderful time. The location is just right, close enough to Southwold but far enough away at the same time. Southwold and Walberswick by the way are delightful. The whole house is immaculate and our bedroom was everything... More

Good food and great hosts, Elaine and Tony made us very welcome. We were favoured with sunny weather during our weekend and we had breakfast in the pleasant rear garden. Definitely revisit again......

Elaine and Tony have thought of everything one could need during a B&B stay. Lovely quiet location, with easy access to lots of interesting places - both coastal and inland. Although confirming other reviews, it has to be said again - breakfasts are excellent!

Relaxing and romantic setting, quiet location. Good location for all the activities and places we wanted to visit. Elaine and Tony were perfect hosts with a beautiful home. Very friendly and welcoming with a great choice for breakfast. Our room was lovely, big and bright. I liked the added extra of 2 chocolates and a water filter in the rooms.... More

absolutely spotless accommodation and fantastic quiet location but only 15 mins drive from the coast and other amenities. The food is first class and all locally sourced produce. And last but not least the hosts go out their way to make your stay a memorable experience. We will more than certainly go back for another visit.

Your stunning review is much appreciated, particularly as your visit coincided with those guests whose reviews are less than complimentary. We are delighted that you intend to return for another visit despite being "reprimanded for taking a shower at 7.30 a.m."!!!! We guarantee that your next visit will be very memorable and enjoyable. It was a pleasure to meet you. More

I stayed at this bed and breakfast with my partner. We stay in Suffolk quite regularly and really love the area. The house is absolutely beautiful and our initial impressions were favorable. Elaine greeted us warmly at the front door and as we had arrived a little earlier than the 4pm check in time, we took ourselves off to the... More

Your comments are in great contrast to the glowing reference you left in our guest book but I am not surprised as your partner would naturally expect you to support his comments. Are the other 76 reviews all wrong? Firstly, potential guests are not rejected because of accents, but are so based on attitude and manner. This is our home... More

We have stayed at many B&B's over the years in England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland and, overall, this has been the best. Bankside is situated in a quiet village location adjacent to farmland, about 4 miles from the charming seaside resort of Southwold. The house is beautifully maintained and decorated and the large garden contains a summer house which guests... More
