Amber House is an excellent bed and breakfast establishment run very efficiently by the lively, friendly Di spring and her daughter Lou. We have stayed here for over 12 years and so feel well qualified to write a review. Location: Amber House is just up from Southwold Pier immediately right on the sea front and 4 minutes walk from the... More

Amber House is on the seafront and in easy walking distance of the town and it's lovely shops and bars/restaurants. Our room was on the top floor and had an amazing view - lovely to wake up to in the morning! Di kindly let us stay for one night in July although two nights is normally expected. The room was...

My daughter and I have just enjoyed a 3 night stay. A relaxing spacious sea front room. Breakfast was always enjoyable. Di and Lou were most friendly and hospitable. Delighted with the area and convenient for Minsmere RSPB. Thanks to both of you. C Riley

Just back from a 4 night stay at Amber House. Located close to the pier and only a short walk from the centre of town, Amber House fulfilled all of our needs. Our hosts, Di and Lou, were warm, welcoming and friendly. Full of useful local knowledge and always helpful, we were looked after marvellously. Our room, at the top... More

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

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
