“Perfect B&B - brilliant breakfasts and fantastic hosts.”
Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at Bankside for 3 nights for a birthday weekend. Elaine and Tony are great hosts, spending the time to get to know their guests and make recommendations for both places to visit and great pub food. The house is stylish and spotless and very peaceful. We are so glad we found it and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in the Southwold area. Sarah & Christina

We arrived at Bankside having booked relatively late so we could go to a friend's party locally. A good job we had the directions but once there it is surprisingly easy to navigate around via either the A145 or the back lanes to Southwold via Reydon.
A nice modern house (built 2004) with a couple of ensuite rooms that were tastefully decorated with bespoke furniture.
Very comfortable bed with beautiful linen ensured a couple of restful nights. No ambient lighting around here to disturb your sleep.
Breakfast was very good and they thoroughly deserve their Gold Award. The local sourced sausages had been through a rigorous taste test and got the thumbs up from me. Breakfast was also taken outside to take advantage of the lovely morning where we enjoyed our chats with the other guests and hosts and watched the butterflies abound in the pretty garden.
Elaine and Tony were generous hosts and Tony, particularly, is a real character!
All in all, a lovely spot and very convenient.

Room Tip: Didn;t see the other but think they are very similar.

We have just returned from a very relaxing stay at Bankside where we were warmly welcomed by our hosts, Elaine & Tony. Accommodation was of a very high standard; very comfortable king-size bed, spotless en-suite bathroom and scrumptious breakfasts. They also provided helpful hints about places to visit during our stay. Thanks again.

We have just come back from a great long weekend in Suffolk. Bankside is only 4 miles from Southwold. Elaine & Tony were wonderful hosts. ~The accommodation is of an extremely high standard and it is no wonder they have won the Gold Standard award. Our room was beautifully decorated. The bed was extremely comfortable with lovely linen. There was a large choice for breakfast with the ingredients sourced locally. I can highly recommend the poached eggs and black pudding. Tony even makes the bread.

The bottom line is whether I would recommend them to friends and the answer is a resounding yes. Looking forward to a return visit.

Just had a great long weekend stay at Bankside B&B in a beautiful part of Suffolk . Elaine and Tony are fantastic hosts and made us feel very welcome. I can certainly see why this B&B has received a Gold standard award. The decor is outstanding and the rooms are a really good size. We had a good nights sleep in a very comfortable bed. There is such a good choice of a hearty breakfast or i could chose to stick to my diet if wanted to...... A fabulous stay from the moment you ring the door bell to the time Elaine and Tony wave you goodbye. Definitely recommend Bankside to anyone. Look forward to returning again soon. Jill and Ben

We badly needed a few days break and Southwold seemed just the place. After looking at different accommodation in Southwold we were not impressed, but when we looked further afield and came across 'Bankside B&B' we knew that was the place for us. When we arrived and were just parking, we felt that it was going to live up to our expectations, with open countryside front and back. When we went inside it certainly did! Elaine and Tony could not have made us more welcome and we were impressed with their attention to detail, especially in the upkeep and decoration of the whole interior and exterior. In addition to that, their breakfasts were excellent and we were made to feel really at home. Although a few miles out of Southwold, it was so easy to drive into the town and in the evenings there were always good pubs/restaurants relatively close for an evening meal. Just taking a walk in the hamlet of Uggeshall was a real pleasure. It is in our book for a return visit when we get another chance. Kay and Geoff
