The Northcliffe b&b is ideally located in Southwold, on the seafront so a stones throw from the beautiful long sandy beach and a short walk to the the town with all it's amenities, restaurants and pubs. Nigel and Karen are the perfect hosts, with a warm welcome on your arrival. Our room was compact, clean... More

The perfect place to stay in beautiful Southwold. The owners Karen and Nigel were very welcoming and provided a great start to the day with a lovely cooked breakfast with an excellent choice which would suit all appetites. The house is well positioned for all amenities within walking distances, great sea views, and spotlessly clean. We stayed in the Lighthouse... More

Clean, fresh, friendly and comfortable. Pricey but competitive for Southwold. Excellent location for the sea front and just a stroll from the town centre. Great breakfast including fresh fruit salad. Karen and Nigel friendly and informative.

Lovely house and the owners Karen and Nigel are a nice, friendly couple who made us feel very welcome - and didn't shout at us when we left our room key at a local pub (a combination of a day's cycling and one or two glasses of wine). The room was lovely - we stayed in The Sunrise which has... More

A pleasant two night stay. The B&B is well appointed and very convenient for beach, pier, and Southwold itself. The cooked breakfasts are excellent. You can park on the street close by. The room (Beach Hut) was on the small side; and the shower room was very snug. Still, there was a sea view and we didn't spend that much... More

An excellent bed and breakfast with all the facilities you could wish for. Northcliffe is perfectly located on the seafront with superb views and immediate access to promenade and beach. It is only a few minutes from the pier, town, shops, restaurants, pubs, church and theatre. The house is well-appointed, with a fine sitting room for guest use as well... More

Took my parents to Southwold for my mother's birthday and stayed 4 nights at Northcliffe. I booked online and the process and communication with Karen & Nigel was quick and straight-forward, as was the method and ease of paying the deposit by bank transfer. My parents were really pleased with the Sunrise Room which had a wonderful sea view and... More

Freshly cooked breakfasts, individually chosen and ordered, a comfortable, tasteful ensuite room with stunning views of the sea and Nigel's and Karens friendly and informative presence contribute to us always choosing Northcliffe.

This was our first trip to Southwold and certainly won't be our last. Likewise, we would stay at Northcliffe again without hesitation. The rooms were lovely and clean, tastefully decorated and had everything we needed. The owners, Karen and Nigel were friendly, helpful and gave good advice regarding local restaurants and amenities. Breakfast was spot on in variety and locally... More
