Had a 1 night stay this weekend. Had booked the Southwold Suite but was contacted a few days before arrival and was told the room was unavailable owing to an urgent repair. Richard could not have been more apologetic and offered an alternative room and a substantially reduced rate. Arrived and the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was... More

Sorry to say a disappointing experience - we had called into The Blyth during the day to check times for dinner. The staff were very friendly and welcoming at this point, and we were looking forwards to an evening meal here. However when we returned in the evening an hour before dinner service was supposed to finish, we were told... More

I stayed here on my own in a single room but it was not bad.It was comfortable, even though small. The hotel also has a restaurant with excellent food and wine so well worth having a meal here.Service a bit slow but food worth the wait. Also excellent breakfast. The hotel has a good position in that it is easy... More

Quite an un-stuffy place, unlike some of the accommodation in Southwold! Owners and staff are welcoming and helpful. The bar, restaurant meals & breakfast were all lovely. Our room for three nights over the Easter break was perfectly comfortable. The hotel needs a little TLC in places, but overall the Blyth is lovely place to stay.

This is an older style establishment with a more modern feel in the public areas downstairs. Our hosts had recently taken on management of the facility and were keen to please, and we took into account that they were probably still getting into the swing of things. We had requested vegan food in advance, and with the exception of a... More

On Sunday 8th March 2015 the Old Felicians had a delightful lunch party here of nine. Six old girls and three duty drivers. The roast beef and pork (and cracklin') avec roasties, mixed veg and massive Yorkshire puddings were enjoyed by all. Desserts are works of art. The dining table could accommodate twelve and was surrounded by tables of two... More

Despite the offputting comments on Tripadvisor, we had a very enjoyable two night stay at the Blyth Hotel. It has a car park and is only a few minutes walk to the sea front. The welcome was very friendly, whilst the hotel was warm and cosy when all outside was extremely cold and blustery. Admittedly, some of the decoration was... More

I tried to book this hotel...sent an email asking if availability....I got a simple one word response "yes" ......so rude......didn't even address me by name or say kind regards. Chose to book elsewhere.
