We absolutely loved staying here, the house was beautiful, the room was spacious and beautifully decorated. Lots of teas/coffees ( including de-caff and flavoured tea) available in the room. Breakfast was delicious and really set you up for the day ahead, Tony makes a great scrambled egg! Elaine is a great hostess and very accommodating. Lots of great recommendations, both... More

Another fantastic visit, lovely room which was absolutely spotless, Elaine and Tony are brilliant hosts and obviously love their home and make you feel part of it. How anyone could leave a poor review is beyond us. We will definitely be returning again as soon as we can.

Excellent accommodation, Elaine and Tony are attentive hosts. Breakfast very good. We can't understand the negative reviews having stayed in many B&B's both in the UK and abroad, few are as good as this. Although a rural location there are pubs and facilities nearby. Also, the A12 is a few minutes away and it provides spinal access to much of... More

I didn't realise that there was another Bankside B&B in Uggeshall that the two previous reviewers must have been staying at because they can't have been staying at the same exceptional one that I stayed at with my wife. Elaine and Tony are far from overbearing however they are justifiably proud of their beautiful home. They provide a warm welcome,... More

We also stayed here though a few months ago now-my previous two reviews have been removed unfortunately as it would seem that speaking your mind is not really accepted.

The constants at Bankside are the location, facilities and hosts. It is reasonable to assume that the qualities of these constants do not change. The variable factor is the guest. It is probably correct to believe that the vast majority of guests who post on the Bankside TA site are of a cheerful and sophisticated disposition and have relished their... More

Bankside is run with brisk efficiency. After booking over the phone , for a long weekend we received the confirmation of the booking along with a comprehensive list of terms &conditions.

Thanks to TA reviewers we managed to stumble upon this first class B&B in rural Suffolk, but within a short drive of the amenities of Southwold and numerous other local attractions. The detached property can only accommodate 2 couples in the two ensuite double rooms, so advance booking is essential. The rooms are spotlessly clean and decorated to a high... More
