“Bankside B & B Suffolk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2013

My husband and i stayed for three nights in may 2013. The house was spotless and furnished with good taste. It was situated in a quiet and relaxed area and Southwold was only 5 mins. away by car which was handy. Breakfast was good but you had to share a table with other guests as it was only a small dining area. The hosts were extremely friendly and keen to ask a bout how your day had been and where you had eaten for evening dinner.

Bankside Bed & Breakfast is located in the hamlet of Uggeshall, a beautiful place in the middle of nowhere and just 15 minutes driving away from Southwold. The accommodation is a 4-Star Gold rating thanks to be stylish, with a luxury bed & breakfast offering an exceptional hospitality ensuring that your stay on the Sunrise Coast will be something really special.

We recently stay in Bankside because I was looking for a nice accommodation near Southwold, a seaside village that captivates us last year when we visited for the first time.
I found Bankside website and looks so good that I decided to give it a chance and booked it straight away...and what a great weekend we had!!

Elaine and Tony have created a tranquil paradise for the senses and I would recommend to anyone that want to spend a nice weekend or holidays, away from their routines, hectic lives and special occasions.

Elaine and Tony are exceptional hosts and the award-winning breakfast that they offer is one of the best we ever had. Do not miss the Traditional Full English, the scramble farm eggs that Tony cooks, really AMAZING! and also the Blueberry smoothie...so yammii!!

Bankside offers as well a list of activities that you can do in Suffolk area, even cafes and restaurants. We had dinner in a Thai restaurant that Elaine and Tony recommended us in Halesworth (just 4 miles away from Bankside) and we did really enjoyed the food and the restaurant.

BANKSIDE is
A place to do not miss,
a place to remember,
a place to always come back.

Room Tip: Bankside offer two stunning double bedrooms with en-suite facilities, fantastic and very comfortable...

We stayed for two nights in March this year. A little gem hidden in the heart of Suffolk.
Facilities were excellent. Comfortable King size-bed, spacious and luxurious en-suite bedroom.
Tony and Elaine are friendly hosts with excellent local knowledge. We hope to return soon.

Elaine and Tony had stylishly renovated Bankside with the last year. If you were expecting a country cottage interior, you'd be disappointed - This is boutique B&B in the heart of rural Suffolk. I love the crisp white bed linen, and the nice touches in the room tell you they really care about their guests. The breakfast is scrumptious - yes, you can taste the freshness and the goodness of the locally sourced produce; it's also substantial - last us til tea time! Elaine & Tony were so welcoming, and so helpful, it was sheer pleasure staying there. Highly recommended.

Peaceful rural setting and we were welcomed by friendly hosts.

I had done my research on the area and this was backed up by Tony and Elaine, adding a few
suggestions..very helpful.

Great two nights sleep in a superbly comfortable king size!

Breakfast museuli wonderful (made by Tony) would have liked to have tried the blueberry smoothie, but didn`t fit in with menu layout..Shame... just a taster would have been great!

One thing which was apparent,was that I was staying in someone`s home, rather than B&B, I am very respectful in this issue, but felt there were too many "unsaid rules", having initially been asked to bring "house footwear".

Lovely chatting to Tony and Elaine. They have great premises in a wonderful spot!

Room Tip: Only two rooms.. The one we had was so comfortable and overlooked the wooded area in the lane..

We have just returned from 8 fabulous days staying at Bankside B&B.We were very well looked after by the owners Liz & Nigel who gave us the best meet & greet we have recieved at any B&B we have stayed at .The room we stayed in was superb,with king size bed and lots of extras you dont normaly get with a lovely modern en-suite.The B&B is small with only two rooms the accomodation is immaculately clean throughout with everything you need on your stay.The award winning breakfast deserves all the awards it as recieved and we loved the early morning banter with Liz & Nigel on where to go and what to see.
You are very well situated here to do all of the Suffolk coast ,inland towns and historic villages also The Norfolk Broads and coast.There are plenty of places to find your evening meal within a short drive of your lovely rural location at Bankside.
We will definitely return to Bankside on our next visit to this beautiful area

We had a lovely stay at Bankside in May and were so well looked after by the owners Liz & Nigel who gave us a nice friendly welcome and were there for us whenever we wanted advice. The room was super with a very comfortable bed and lots of extras we didn’t expect. The whole b&b was so spotless and beautifully clean with a. high attention to detail. Breakfast was a highlight with a lovely selection including the fresh fruit salad that other b&b’s don’t offer. Lovely cooked breakfast.
Very calming and relaxing place to stay
The b&b is in a very quiet spot with no traffic and lovely views of the woods opposite. All in all we got more than we expected from a 4*. We’ll give them 5*!!
