Although I have mentioned this B & B in my previous review on Southwold. After reading other hotel reviews I feel I should elaborate on the Guesthouse a little bit more.
Amber House is on the sea front not far from the pubs and shops. It is a lovely home filled with oldy worldy furniture and interesting curios. The furnishings are what you would expect - elegant. The house exudes character and is very welcoming just like the owners, Di and Dick Smith.
The dining-room and lounge are also attractive and very comfortable. Breakfast is plentiful. I even had freshly caught kippers one morning!! All rooms have en-suite and I paid 85 pounds a night for the deluxe room at the front overlooking the sea which consists of a double and single bed. The other rooms are a little bit cheaper.
Amber House and Southwold are a perfect marriage.The guesthouse compliments the quaintness of Southwold. You will not be disappointed.
