“A lovely friendly stay with a beach view across the road.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We had 3 nights here and enjoyed its position on sea front. The owner Di was a lovely chatty welcoming lady and our room was lovely and clean and fresh but it was a small double we had but honestly it was big enough for the time spent in it.
Breakfast was wonderful and we did not have to wait for it and it was well cooked and sausage was a real sausage thick bacon fresh eggs with an orange yolk yummy ...... Cereals were on offer and yoghurts. Tea coffee etc. Di's daughter was helping out at breakfast as usual lady was on holiday and made breakfast fun with her lively cheery talk and couldn't do enough for us. Would of liked longer there. Southwold is a lovely little place as we're nearby places and the sun shone for us.

We have been staying here for years, it's our favourite place to stay. Di the landlady is friendly
and helpful, lots of nice little touches, chocolate at Easter, kippers & smoked Salmon on our last trip. We love looking out to sea from our room.
Can't wait to go back.

We have just spent 3 glorious nights meeting up with family at Amber House
A pefect location overlooking the sea within easy walking distance of the pier , restaurants and shops.Being 6 of us we more or less took over the place and congregated in the very large front bedroom
Di Spring is the perfect host and gave us a very warm welcome
The rooms were very clean and comfortable and as for the breakfast-well you certainly dont go out hungry.- enormous !!
We all enjoyed our stay so much that we are hoping to visit again next October

Room Tip: The large bedroom at the front overlooks the sea and is so spacious

My husband and I just stayed 2 nights as a break for my birthday in this B&B. We were lucky to get room 1 which is huge with a double and single bed, lots of windows overlooking the sea, en suite and comfy chairs. Lovely bed too!
Di knew she would be out when we arrived but went out of her way to call and make arrangements for us to get in so we didn't have to wait around. She made us very welcome and provided lovely breakfasts.
If I had any moan it would be the towels. They were pretty old and the bath towel was small.
Would love to stay again - in room 1. Southwold is a lovely quaint little town. We parked FOC outside the B&B and didn't need our car again. There are lovely restaurants and the Boardwalk cafe on the pier does very nice lunches.

My wife and I stayed for two nights as we had tickets for the nearby Latitude festival. The B&B is perfectly located on the front in Southwold, close to the pier and close to various local restaurants and shops. It was also a short walk to the Kings Head for the bus to Latitude.

Di was a great host and everyone else was very friendly. Our room was on the top floor without a sea view (but we knew that when we booked so that was fine). The room was a fine size, bathroom was pretty small but perfectly adequate. I thought overall it was very good value and I would recommend it to others.

Room Tip: If you can get one with a sea view I'm sure that would be very special.
