“Perfect location!”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

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.

You can be assured of a very warm welcome at this excellent guest house. Di Spring is a wonderful character and Amber House is splendid. The location is superb and everything spotlessly clean. A visit to Southwold is a joy and this is an wonderful place to stay.

Warm and inviting, the Amber B and B is in an ideal location for couples and families. Near pier, beach and town. Rooms are comfortable and the first floor fromt bedroom with views over the sea is very special. Had a super breakfast and great stay.

Room Tip: Try the front bedroom on first floor!

Located on the waterfront, less than 5 minutes from the pier and 10 minutes from the centre of the town. Everyone at Amber House was welcoming, the room was spotlessly clean. Room 5 is at the top and back but the Suffolk sunset views were still lovely. The B&B and neighborhood is quiet. The breakfast is good. The hosts are welcoming but not overbearing. I highly recommend this place and if I return to Southwold, I will stay here again.

Room Tip: Take the Adnams brewery tour.

We stayed at Amber House with another couple and had two adjacent rooms on the 3rd floor. This is a wonderfully comfortable and welcoming B&B, right on the sea front. Peaceful and quiet and Di Spring is a wonderful host and a real character. A pefect and relaxing weekend break and we wouldn't hesitate to go back there.
