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 lovely find, exceeded expectations. Very comfortable, high quality b&b. Delicious breakfasts, friendly and entertaining hosts made our stay special. A quiet location not far from Southwold, peaceful and relaxing.

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

Bankside is a beautiful B&B, very quiet and secluded. The hosts, Elaine and Tony, are friendly and welcoming with great advice about where to eat, what to do in the area, etc. The breakfasts are as good as all the reviews - I especially recommend the smoothie, which is a meal in itself. Lush! Tony is a great storyteller and... More

Pretty and secluded you can have a peaceful night's sleep at Bankside B&B. Our hosts, Elaine and Tony, were warm and welcoming and cooked us delicious breakfasts with locally sourced produce. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable. We had a wonderful couple of days. Thank you. Liz M, Essex

Elaine & Tony were delightful hosts for our two night stay, friendly and helpful, with plenty of suggestions about places to visit in the local area. The rooms are very nicely finished and comfortable, beyond the standard of most hotels, and immaculately clean, with good wifi service. The location is good, off the beaten track (so you might miss it... More
