Historical Traveller Reviews of The Blyth Hotel
Blythe Hotel, Southwoldfrom GeorgeShrub
Food OK Shame About the Roomfrom quadcam
Excellent servicefrom phillintheuk
A Fabulous family weekendfrom BrotherGregorio
Bedrooms and Bathrooms were first class. Food was brilliant as was the bar! There were 8 of us plus 2 babies and they were treated superbly.....we will be back
Poor Service- Very SLOWfrom DFTown
Given the excuse that they were one man down in the kitchen but as everyone else was served before us this did not ring true.
When the food arrived, (avarage quality), 1st course was cold (probably left waiting downstairs)and in the case of the pudding inedible. (Creme brulee, seperated consistancy of scrambled egg!)
Female older member of staff on desk not that interested in our complaint, felt she had heard it before from several other customers, teenage waitress argumentative. (Should have just gone and got another pudding).
Fantastic Suitefrom Tickhillblade
Unfortunately as our stay was for one night only, we chose to eat in the Restaurant. The food was excellent and the service friendly. The bar and Restaurant areas were modern and vibrant.

Almost Perfect!from ShaunRoche
I am extremely fussy and often find that the smallest of problems or glitches can completely ruin a stay in what can purportedly be a good hotel.
Well, no such problems here!
We were greeted in a warm and friendly manner and though we were pretty early, early enough for our room not to be ready (our fault), our luggage was taken from us and put in our rooms, which was very helpful and allowed us to have a good walk round to stretch our legs before returning to the Hotel.
We were in a superior double which was very tastefully decorated, airy and warm. The Bathroom was clean and tidy with an excellent deep bath, though the position of the toilet left a bit of head scratching and slightly caressed knees!
The quality of the full English Breakfast was excellent, with no waiting, though a portion of Baked beans would have gone down a treat, that being my only gripe, things are looking good so far.
The decor and layout of the bar is excellent and the beer etc. of a good quality and whilst we have heard extremely good reports about the evening dining there, we did not avail ourselves of as we didn't want to retire on a full stomach, preferring to walk into town and go to the Crown, though there was a definite feeling that we may have missed out on something and have promised ourselves that next time we stay there we will be trying out the menu.
On the ground floor, there is also a guest lounge which is homely, welcoming and comfortable. Despite the fact that the decor of the hotel looks new, which we know it relatively is, this does not make anything feel clinical, but rather fresh and welcoming.
Overall, I would not hesitate to highly recommend this hotel to anyone as we had a first class experience there. The Owners, Rick and Charlie and staff appear helpful and enthusiastic in the extreme without being overbearing whilst nothing we requested was outwardly regarded as being too much trouble. From what I can see and being an experienced traveller on both business and pleasure, I can say that they are along way to getting it right.
The only way the hotel can be improved is if it is moved brick by brick to the sea front as that really for me was the only down side to it, though in its defence the walk into town and back is a pleasant one.
Basically, it was a home from home experience and whilst it can be regarded as a cliche, both my wife and I felt that as we arrived as fee paying customers, we left as friends and there is a lot to be said for that.

Top Local Tips for Southwold
Attractions Visit Snape with its disused brewery converted into tourist attraction - shops, cafe, art gallery, concert hall etc.
Eating out Beyond the hotel, local prices are very expensive in town to eat out e.g. £19 for a plaice dish, £6 for a jacket potato, £14 for raviolli etc...
Dog Tip This is a great village if you have a dog - very accommodating pubs and everyone seems to put our fresh water! There are numerous greens in between the lovely cottages and a great common for dog walking.Just be careful what time of year - dogs aren't allowed on the beach from 01/05 through to 30/09
