Stayed here for just one night with friends. We were very surprised when we turned up that an envelope was stuck on the front door with our names and the keys to the house and rooms - never ever had that happen before. There was no welcome as apparently the owners do not live on site. Our rooms were on... More

Stayed here bank hol weekend with my wife. We had room 4 with a four poster bed. The staff were friendly, as were the other guests, some of whom we chatted to in the lounge/bar at the back. The room itself was very clean and comfortable and also quiet at night. The location is good, just a 2 minute walk... More

This is a warm, friendly hotel with efficiant staff, the rooms are clean and well presented, we even had a four poster bed. The breakfast was lovely, you could have anything you wanted and there was plenty of it. The hotel... More

Stayed 2 nights. Arrived mid-afternoon, envelope taped to door with keys to choice of rooms. Previously advised that we were carers for disabled adults so given choice of ground floor room which we didn't take. Rooms 3 and 4 on 1st floor were clean, although a little dated. Room 3 with double bed, single bed, bunks and a travel cot... More

This is a basic bed and breakfast. Friendly people and good breakfast. No one to welcome us and no one enquired if everything was alright. Would not say this was a 4* hotel. Just an average b & b. However, the location was good and the lovely Gorleston beach was not far away and would prefer this to a b... More

We were surprisingly disappointed with our stay here given its previous reviews. There were some positives, but given all the negatives, we struggled to focus on them. The location is great, for a start - right next to the peaceful, clean Gorleston beach. We arrived at about 6pm and our key was left outside for us, which is fine, but... More
