Really enjoyed a fantastic couple of days at this gem of a B & B very close to the A12 and Southwold. Tony and Elaine are very generous hosts with their time and their home is extremely welcoming to guests. Food and accommodation were both superb and ideas for a day out were well-researched. Would strongly recommend Bankside to anyone... More

Many thanks to Elaine and Tony for a wonderful stay at Bankside B&B. Our room was very comfortable with a five star feel about it, even down to Ferrero Rocher taster! Elaine was always keen to advise on places to eat, places to visit and Tony cooked an amazing breakfast. The house is in a peaceful location, yet only 10... More

What a warm and friendly greeting we received when we arrived at Bankside last Sunday! Elaine and Tony had gone to great lengths to bake a delicious gluten-free cake which accompanied a welcoming cup of tea. We would recommend booking as early as possible, as there are just the two rooms available - but we are talking quality not quantity!... More

Very clean, comfortable and friendly b&b. Breakfast cooked fresh by Tony. Excellent location, Southwold very close with great restaurants. RSPB Minsmere close by for bird enthusiasts. Would highly recommend a stay here.

My sister and I were looking forward to a girlie weekend away and we found Bankside on the Internet and what a wonderful place we found. Everything was spotless! It looked as if the whole place had been freshly decorated just for us and we had a room each. The bed linen was superb, soft and dreamy! Every whim in... More

A warm welcome awaits you at Bankside. Elaine and Tony obviously enjoy meeting people and go out of their way to see you have a very comfortable and relaxed stay. Pop along in the summer to enjoy breakfast in the garden, or any time to explore the Suffolk coast and countryside. Elaine very knowledgeable about local restaurants, pubs for evening... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights last weekend and had a lovely stay at Elaine and Tony's. We love Southwold and Bankside is a short 10 min journey away and in a really good spot for other local villages like Framlingham and Snape which are also worth a visit if in that area. We had the superior room... More

Have just spent 5 nights at Bankside. A warm welcome, spotless accommodation and fabulous breakfasts that keep you going all day. Elaine and Tony are full of good advice about places to visit and places to eat. A great location for exploring the Suffolk coast.
