My husband and I spent a couple of days in Southwold and chose Wellesley House based on the Tripadvisor reviews and we certainly made an excellent choice. As mentioned before the guesthouse is only a short walk from the centre of Southwold, the beach and the pier. The room was comfortable and spacious with lovely views over the common out... More

My wife and I wanted a few days in Southwold and because of the good Tripadvisor reviews many of the B&B's there have, we decided to try one of them. I chose Wellesley House mainly because it has car parking, but I quickly realised it has a lot more going for it than that. The welcome was warm and friendly,... More

Stayed with Julie and Bruce for 2 nights when in Southwold to attend a wedding. We thought everything about the B&B was first class. The room was spacious, comfortable ( the bed exceptionally so) and well appointed with great views over the common and the coast. The bowl of fruit, the shortbread and tea and coffee making facilities with fresh... More

This is a very comfortable guesthouse with friendly hosts. Everything is done to a high standard including the delicious breakfast. Situated in a quiet road with parking outside, and within a short walk of the town centre and the beach. Hope to re-visit.

Conveniently situated a short walk from the sea and the town centre, this guest house is a cut above the average B&B. The hosts are friendly and attentive but not overbearing, the house is pretty, and the breakfasts were divine - English one day and local kippers the next; choice of cereals, fresh fruit and juice, toast and preserves, all...

A very rare bed and breakfast - like a hotel but much quieter. The room had everything that we could possibly need including tea and coffee (fresh milk), fruit, hairdryer, clock radio with iPod dock. The bed was large and extremely comfortable and we had the option of two singles or a double. We had the room with adjacent bathroom... More

A family group of us stayed at Wellesley House in July for a few nights. We have stayed in Southwold for a few years running and this is by far the best place, that we have been to. The breakfast was delicious, with a flexible time. The bedrooms all newly decorated with beautiful bathrooms. Julie was so friendly and helpful,... More

I find it almost impossible to think of any way in which our three-night stay at this quietly, yet very conveniently,situated characterful period house could have been improved. It was a delight from start to finish. It appears that Julie's mission in life is to make everything in her B&B as comfortable and convenient for her guests as possible, and... More

My friend and I had a lovely (snowy) weekend in Southwold and stayed at Wellesley House. Julie is the perfect host, a natural and everything is just right! The decor is neutral with lovely bright paintings, the twin room is a good size, the beds are really comfortable, the place is quiet, our bathroom was huge, everything was spotlessly clean... More
