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

Stayed here for 2 nights in August, a family party of all ages who all enjoyed their stay and would be keen to visit again. The rooms were beautifully decorated and extremely clean and well presented. The hosts gave us a warm welcome and were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast had a good variety and was delicious. Would definitely... More

Lovely warm welcome from the owner, Di and daughter, Lou. Amber House is only 100 metres from the pier and a five minute stroll into the centre of the town, with free street parking on the sea front and side streets. Our room was small but had everything we needed, and the beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was well... More

Made to feel very welcome by Di and her daughter, very well situated on the seafront with for the time of the year easy parking, just a short walk from the lovely old fashion pier and town centre. Very comfortable room with amazing view out to sea and the pier, nice a quiet but near enough not to have to... More

All we can do is to add our thanks to all the other reviewers have written. Excellent location on the seafront. Wonderfully large Victorian windows look onto a magnificent seascape. The location is quiet and the rooms very comfortable. Above all Di and Lou have have the magic that makes every good b&b a success - they have a great... More

We came across Amber House by chance - but we're so happy we found it. Di and Lou are the most wonderful hosts and the house is immaculate - particularly the front room on the first floor. Beautifully decorated, large, welcoming and the waves lull you to sleep at night. The hosts are great fun to talk with, have a... More

Amber house sits right on the seafront. You wake to the sea and pier view if you book the large room - it is well appointed, spacious and comfortable having being recently redecorated. Di is the owner and we were well looked after; especially so at breakfast which is good. Basically we could have no complaints and so would strongly... More

We stayed here whilst walking the coastal path and were really well looked after. Located on the seafront so a wonderful view, and only a couple of minutes walk from the pier and great pubs and restaurants.
