“Paradise in Southwold”
Reviewed September 26, 2011

If you're planning a trip to Southwold then look no further than Wellesley House. The location is excellent - very peaceful and relaxing, but only a two minute walk to the centre of Southwold with its amazing selection of bars, restaurants and shops. Free parking directly outside the guest house is another huge bonus in a town that can get quite busy. Julie and Bruce are superb hosts who make you feel really welcome - well done guys - keep up the good work!

Room Tip: The 'Blue Room' has en-suite and lovely views to the sea.

We come over from Spain every year to see family and friends,and this year decided on a short break in Southwold.My sister had heard on the grapevine of Wellesley House,we duly booked and are very glad that we did so.There is no criticism to be made about this establishment the rooms are clean and comfortable the views outstanding,the breakfasts are first class,and car parking could not be easier given that Southwold is notorious for parking in high season.the house is ideally situated for all amenities,maybe the only thing lacking is a licensed bar but having said that Bruce the landlord did buy us a drink when we stumbled across him in a local pub.Would highly recommend .Roberto and Sussanah.

We have always loved Southwold and now we have discovered Wellesley House, it has made our stay idyllic. A lovely bedroom (with enormous bed and armchairs) and bathroom and with one of Julies delicious breakfasts, what more could you want? Julie is a tireless host and made us feel very welcome. Wellesley House is in a great location within easy walking distance of local amenities such as shops, restaurants, pubs, pier and harbour.

Room Tip: Both rooms excellent

Stayed 2 nights B&B August 2011. Stayed in room 2 which has an ensuite toilet and shower, comfortable seating area, and enormous (and very comfy) bed. Nice view across common to harbour and sea in the distance. Two minute walk to centre of Southwold, parking either right outside or very nearby. Owner could not be more helpful. Book here with confidence.

Room Tip: In high season book in advance to get in local restaurants

What a wonderful B&B! Wellesley House is only a very short walk to the High Street with its good selection of shops and restaurants. The local Adnams Brewery is also an added bonus. The room was excellent with a wonderful view over the common. The beds were comfortable and the separate bathroom very well appointed with fresh towels and toiletries. The breakfast was huge, with so much to eat that we never had to eat again until the evening. Julie was a very hospitable host and made our stay very enjoyable. We can recommend staying at Wellesley House to everyone.

We had a fantastic weekend staying in Julie's lovely house. The room was huge and tastefully decorated with a shower en suite and a view across the fields to the sea. The house is moments away from the high street but is surrounded by fields on the other side.

We arrived having left a suitcase on the train- Julie was very helpful scouring the internet and yellow pages for phone numbers and train timetables. We tracked it down and her husband drove me all the way to Norwich to pick it up!!! You don't often find people like this!

Julie's breakfasts are worth going to bed early for! Roast cherry tomatoes on the vine, proper sausages etc.. One of the best full English's I've had in a while.

I'm not going to use this review to go on about how enchanting Southwold is, you have to see for yourself. When you do, make sure you check out the handmade arcade machines on the pier- very unique!

I did a huge amount of research into the best place to stay and I am really glad I found it!

We'll be back.
