    Never stayed in the Blyth Hotel before so was pleased to find it was dog friendly. The breakfast was good, the fish pie was lovely and it felt very relaxed and informal. Room felt uncluttered but warm and cosy, We usually stay in The Swan but they don't take dogs. Also the reception staff were unhelpful when trying to book afternoon tea for one of our days, saying the kitchen would be closed. Walking past the kitchen looked pretty much open judging by the number of people that were in there. Make your own conclusions on that one but I doubt they will have much of our custom in the future. Also try the Sole Bay Inn, dog friendly and good beer and food - you can't book in advance for grub. Bear in mind this is Feb so the Pier was completely closed until the season opens.

    Southwold is lovely and picturesque, atmosphere is like going back in time. All the shops and staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful. We stayed and ate in the crown, highly recommended. We also ate at Coasters which again was perfect and highly recommended. You can walk around Southwold, no need for transport. Lovely, welcoming town with plenty to do in the winter months. The beach walk we took was peaceful and relaxing. We felt completely relaxed and rejuvenated upon our return home. Advice is to book your evening meals before you arrive, we witnessed many people not being able to book tables obviously because everyone wants to eat in the lovely hotels and restaurants, there is also a lovely fish and chip shop who cook to order should you not be able to book a table so no one goes hungry. Lunchtime is an ideal time to visit the many bakers to have a cuppa and lovely fresh snacks. The Sailors library is a must visit

    Very nice small town on the coast. Very nice beach. Lots of small local shops with wide selection of products and very good prices. Nice beach and good selection of restaurants and eating/snacking establishments. Local brewery has great selection of local craft beers in all establishments.

    Southwold is always a pleasant place to visit however we felt that compaired to many years of our previous visits the town seems to be looking a little tired and we found it suprising many of the places to eat out in the evening closed around 8pm.

    Southwold is a beautiful Suffolk village which I would recommend to anyone. The walk along the sea front is a treat not to miss. There are lots of pubs and restaurants but the one that stands out is the restaurant on the pier. It was our best meal of the holiday and we had some good ones.

    Very good location in the middle of Southwold and convenient for the beach as well. The property is thoughtfully and well kitted out with all you could need for a longer stay (though we were only there 3 days). the weather was freezing when we were there but the heating was good. the only minor inconvenience is that there was no parking next to the property, though we were able to find parking not too far away. we imagine though that in the summmer this could be a problem.

    We stayed in squirrel. Lovely accommodation, small kitchen and sitting area and bathroom downstairs then lovely bedroom upstairs. Our daughter stayed on camp bed. Small seating area outside, has beautiful gardens surrounding. Great breakfast one morning (extra). Everything was very good, very welcoming, great advice on places to go. Really good location, short drive into Southwold but good spot for travelling further down coast - we also visited Aldeburgh, Orford and Snape.

    Firstly all the staff were wonderful. Helpful, funny and very friendly. Breakfasts were great, good choices and plenty of it. We were a group of ten family members and everyone loved the hotel and staff. Just off the bar was an area with couches where we could all sit together which was wonderful.

    Everything….the cleanliness, location, food were great! Also nice and quiet. However, I didn’t realize we were getting the small room, my reservation led me to believe we had the garden room. But as I mentioned, the more important aspects of the room/hotel were great!

    Although the hotel is in central Southwold, our front bedroom was nicely quiet as it was out of season. Very comfortable, with helpful local staff good menu and a nice atmosphere. Only a short walk to the sea front and walks along the beach.

    The room was bright, airy, very clean and beautifully presented. Very helpful staff at reception. The public rooms downstairs were also of a high standard including a small bar with cask Adnams beers. The breakfast yogurts were really good!

    Fabulous weekend in a building with history and character. Huge room with out of sight ceiling, exposed wood and ironmongery. Delicious breakfast. Minutes from Southwold, Minsmere etc. Priceless silence after dark. Highly recommended.
