For those of you looking for a get away to the quintessential English seaside resort you will struggle to beat this. There's a distinct lack of the amusement arcades, McDonalds etc that now blight most English sea side towns. The house is superbly placed ON the sea front with views of the pier and beach. Ask for Room 1 if it is available as it is the largest room and has a lot of space. The landlady (Di) is extremely friendly and helpful. I paid 90.00 per night for two nights last week. The breakfasts are plentiful with the usual choices if a 'full English' is not required. There are some lovely local walks including one to Walberswick where you can enjoy a very hearty lunch at the Bell Inn. A trip to Minsmere RSPB Reserve is also recommended. Evening meals at the Nelson's Head will not disappoint, nor will the Adnams Broadside to wash it down!
Only minus observation re Amber House is the lack of 'stand up' shower fittings in the bath.
