If you don't want to stay in a spotlessly clean beautifully equipped room with a comfy bed, good quality tea,coffee and biscuits and the most beautifully freshly cooked breakfast! We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed every minute of our time there. The hosts were cheery and friendly without being imposing. We had a sea view room on the 3rd... More

We were very pleased with our stay at Britten House. The room was very comfortable, beautifully furnished; the shower was good, a small shelf would be useful above the sink. The breakfast choice was very good and the food was cooked perfectly. We were made to feel very welcome. The Hotel is well placed for views of the sea, a... More

Great room, wonderful views and tasty breakfast - hoping to stay again soon. Enjoyed the fact that the beach and Town was easy to walk to from Britten House. The Beach had golden sand and was very clean

Our son has recently moved into Lowestoft so we wanted to spend some time with him, but could not stay with him as he only has a small flat. We wandered from his road just one street over a saw Britten House. Facing onto the sea front, a grand building with well kept gardens we stuck our heads in and... More

Wouldn't have come back to Lowestoft by choice. (Terrible visit 2 years ago) but had moved slightly further south this time and the difference was unbelievable. The Britten especially made our trip. Thank you the room was spotless and decorated to a very good standard and breakfast was spot on.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are glad we were able to improve your view of Lowestoft. The south side of the bridge is far more of a tourist area and we have a lovely golden sandy beach which once again has achieved the Blue Flag status. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at... More

Stayed two weeks, the bedroom was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was great, ranging from cereal to cooked with lots of choices. The owners, Colin and Ann were friendly and helpful. Very close to the beach and within walking distance to town, it was my home away from home.

Excellent in all areas. Room was good with a lovely comfortable bed (room 7), Colin and Ann (owners) were extremely helpful and friendly. Breakfast was top class and plentiful but this did not stop Colin asking if more toast or anything was needed. Very good value for money. Right on top of the beach for a great walk. Thoroughly enjoyable... More

WOW, it was spectacular views from this gorgeous Guest House that oozed history. Ann and Colin made us extremely welcome, nothing was too much for them. Ordered taxi's booked restaurants.
