“A very enjoyable stay”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

A group of us spent 3 nights with Nigel & Karen who gave us all a very warm friendly welcome. They happily helped with jugs etc as we had planned to have Pimms on the Prom opposite. The rooms were very well appointed (all with different and good views. In the front rooms we were lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves on the beach. The breakfasts were excellent with plenty of choices and good quantities. An ideal spot to enjoy a relaxing break, close to the town centre, restaurants pier and beach. Many thanks Nigel and Karen for a great stay we will definitely come again.

Room Tip: The rooms at the front have great sea views

Owners Nigel and Karen were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good and the large table in the breakfast room (plus 2 x tables for 2) encouraged conversations between the guests.
We stayed in the Sole Bay bedroom which was clean and had a comfortable bed.
Only disappointment was the very cramped en-suite, although everything was there - W.C., washbasin and electric shower. To be fair, suppose it would have been difficult to construct a much larger en-suite in that room.
Lovely view of the beach from our window. Good value for money.

A warm welcome from Karen and Nigel as we returned for another visit to their B&B.
Breakfast is wonderful here, not just the food, but Karen's 'big' table means that it is a very friendly affair with all the guests chatting, and exchanging tails of the previous day.
The room was very pleasant, and a sea view, just yards away.
What more could you ask for.
highly recommended.

We have just enjoyed a lovely relaxing weekend at Northcliffe, which is located on the seafront, with easy access to all amenities. We were made to feel so welcome upon arrival and were looked after really well throughout. Our room was pleasant and well equipped with everything we needed and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast was really tasty, with lots of choice. We particularly enjoyed the home-made fresh fruit salad and the wide selection of cooked items. We came home feeling really spoilt and very well rested. Many thanks to Karen and Nigel, who were such good hosts.

Just spent 2 nights with Nigel & Karen. We overlooked Beach huts, beach & sea with a side view of the pier. Very friendly welcome and excellent breakfast. Bedroom (Pier) was on the small side but fully kitted out including WIFI. Northcliffe is very convenient for town pier and beach.

Stayed in Sol Bay room which was very clean, bed very comfortable and well stocked with refreshments and toiletries. Requested decaf tea and coffee which was no problem. Lovely sea view and little noise to spoil our stay. Breakfast was very good with good choice and well cooked. Location was ideal for pier and town and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and be happy to return. The only reason we didn't give full marks is because the en-suite is very compact in this room although perfectly functional

Southwold is a beautiful little town, and Northcliffe is the perfect place to base yourself. Right on the seafront, a brief 5 min walk to the pier in one direction and town in the other direction. Karen and Nigel were great hosts and the breakfast was lovely. We stayed in the Beach Hut room and being awoken to the sound of the sea every morning was blissful. Highly recommended!
