“The perfect all round and unspoilt secret escape”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

Stayed at the Northcliffe last July for three nights. Thoroughly enjoyed. This year we did two nights and must say it was as perfect a stay as the first one, even with a little rain thrown in. Our little secret escape. We will go back to minimum of three days though, well worth it. Lets not forget the food, 5 star breakfast to match the 5 star hospitality.
Thank you Nigel and Karen.

We thoroughly enjoyed returning to Northcliffe and were made very welcome by Karen & Nigel. The room overlooking the sea was a delight, the bed very comfortable and the breakfast extremely good.Karen spent time advising us on places to eat and visit which we found helpful. Northcliffe is centrally located between the pier and the town and parking is usually available opposite the guest house. We were made to feel at home and will definately return.

This was the first time we had stayed at the Northcliffe, Nigel and Karen made us very welcome
and it was nice that we called by our first names. Beakfast had a good choice of things to eat and our room was excellent which made the stay even better, able to park outside and left the car there for the 3 days. The sea veiws made the stay worth while and being able to come and go to our room was great. Would we go back again the answere is yes.

We booked very late, wanting a sea view room in a good location. Things were organised very easily via email with Nigel and Karen, and the Northcliffe was easy to find with free parking across the road .
The Sole Bay room is on the second floor, delightfully furnished and very comfortable. The en-suite is compact, with a nice array of shampoo etc.
Tea and coffee provision in the room, plus glasses and bottle opener should one want a little something . The breakfast is very good, all guests sharing the big dining table, which encourages friendly conversation. We had fresh fruit, followed by scrambled egg and bacon, but I am quite sure that any dietary choices or needs would be catered for with prior notice. There is a very attractive sitting room down stairs, looking out over the sea, for guests to use.
A friendly B&B that I would happily recommend.

Room Tip: We will try for the Sunrise Room next time, one floor down, and large bay windows. But will need to...

Just returned from 3 nights in this great B&B. We had the Sole Bay room with a sea view. The room was compact but well equipped and spotless - lovely comfy bed from which we could see and hear the sea.
The breakfast was really good - nice choice of cereals & fruit followed by delicious cooked options.
All in all a fantastic B&B in a fantastic location in lovely Southwold.

Deserving of its table-topping place in the list of Southwold B&Bs, the Northcliffe did us proud on a recent visit. It's a classy place right on the seafront, run by a charming couple with a good taste in both furnishing and literature. Strongly recommended.

We stayed for 3 nights at Northcliffe, We had The Beach Hut sea view room, which was immaculately clean with a very comfortable bed and spotless en suite shower room. Karen and Nigel offer a delicious breakfast and make you feel very welcome in their well maintained home. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend Northcliffe, to anyone thinking of staying at the lovely traditional sea side town of Southwold. Thank you Karen and Nigel and not forgetting Lily and Harriett.

Room Tip: Book early to avoid missing out on a sea view room.
