Having been strongly recommended to stay at Amber House, initially I was really thrilled to get a booking for 2 nights - especially as I was to get a sea view! However, I was not informed that it was up 4 flights of stairs with little enthusiasm from the proprietor to help me cart my case up there. There was... More

I treated my sister to a one night stay at the Amber House for her birthday. We found the staff so friendly and chatty - taking the time to remember what we were doing whilst staying and then taking the time to ask us about it the next day. The room at the top of the house (4) was lovely,... More

Upon seeing a good weather forecast, my wife and myself decided to treat ourselves to a 4 day spring holiday. We stayed in room 1 with its double bay windows and fabulous views over the beach and pier. Tea making facilities, hairdryer and tv are provided. The bed is a large double and there is even a single bed too.... More

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

We stayed here for 2 nights with our daughter and her boyfriend over Valentines weekend. 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
