This property is in an excellent location for the sea, Pier and to walk into town. It is very comfortable and well resourced. We have visited just before Christmas for the last 8 years and it just wouldn't be Christmas without a visit to Caithness House in Southwold.

Mr S,

Caithness House was perfectly located for our stay in Southwold. The apartment was very well equipped, especially the kitchen, and we were able to cook at home with ease, with plenty of space for everyone. The apartment was very clean and tidy on arrival and the check in process was very straight forward.

Dr H,

Caithness House is a great base to explore Southwold. Walk a few paces one way and you are on the beach, the other way you are in the town. We had a wheelchair user with us, it was really accessible (as described). Plenty of space for the family to eat together, play games or just relax. Beds comfortable and everywhere was spotless. Lovely touches - like a welcome cake and fresh milk in the fridge. Would definitely book again.

Ms N,

Caithness House is in a lovely location, with the seafront being just at the end of the road. The decor is nice and it has comfy sofas for lounging if the weather is not so good. There is lots of kitchen equipment available but no where to store food. The TV seemed to be very new and had lots of extra channels such as Netflix as promised, but the channels are not signed in to an account. So you can only use them if you have your own account anyway. It would be better if they were signed in to their own Caithness House account. The WiFi was good though.

Mrs R,

Prime position, very nice spacious accommodation all on one level, good layout and nicely decorated and furnished. Perfect for anyone unable to do stairs.
