We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed the sea views, and a lovely sunrise over the sea. This was what we were expecting. A typical bed and breakfast with a lovely outgoing host and her daughter. The room we had was a good size and the ensuite just right. The bed was comfortable, and the TV available if you wanted... More

It was her 30th birthday and we were travelling on to a lodge with a hot tub near Hadleigh on the Monday so wanted to spend a couple of nights in Southwold prior to this. We had the first floor large room which had a... More

We loved the seafront view and our good-humored hostesses. A special Valentine's weekend, away from the city. We also discovered Southwold, ate fresh fish in the harbour and walked through the marsh. We'll be back!

My friend Sue and I stayed at Amber House just for one night. A couple of days away to celebrate her birthday in January. We had a fabulous room at the front of the house with three windows through we could see the stormy sea and snowy beach. THe house is large and well proportioned, homely but still elegant. Warm,...

I was looking at stopping for a night and this was the first place I tried after the Tourist Information was unable to help. They had a few places they could try but the prices were likely to be high than I wanted to pay. I was welcomed by two staff who checked room availability and advised of me of... More

Can't commend this B&B highly enough. It was well maintained, clean and comfortable. The owner had no issues with us arriving at 9pm and was charming and attentive throughout our stay. It was more like staying with a friend than at a Bed and Breakfast. Thank you so much We will be back and will recommend to anyone who is... More

We have just spent 2 days at Amber House, it was in a delightful location overlooking the sea. Our mother and daughter hosts were so friendly and provided a wonderful English breakfast, they were always interested in our welfare and pointed us in the right direction for evening meals. Try it out, you will not be disappointed.

Right on the sea front with great views - luckily we had a front facing room. Di and Lou make everyone very welcome and Di cooks up a great breakfast. Amber House was very clean, it was great being able to use the lounge to chill out, after a hard days crabbing at Walberswick, and play games or build our... More

This is a very friendly guest house overlooking the beach. Di and her daughter make everyone very welcome. They are very knowledgeable about the area and are able to provide information on where to go. The rooms and breakfasts are good, I had kippers and smoked salmon with scrambled eggs. We are already thinking on when we can come back... More
