Very friendly couple who run the place. Very comfortable room with large bed and lovely shower. Breakfast was nice, calm and delightful homemade marmalade and jam. It is close to the sea and walking distance to everything you need.

Positive points: Price (very reasonable), location right by the sea (I parked in a free bay outside but there's also car parking at the house), the room was super - a good size, with high ceilings and a spacious ensuite. Fast, free WiFi. Slept like a log in the very comfortable bed. Breakfast was enormous with quality ingredients (e.g. thick... More

Stayed in Benjamin Britten room facing the sea. Very relaxing and comfortable room and to watch the winter sea. Have stayed here before and the same excellent service and friendliness of hosts was given to all guests.

I stayed here for work purposes recently, and I was delighted to visit Lowestoft as an old childhood haunt. Britten House is a fantastic little B&B: a level above what you'd find from a lot of hotels, and better value too. The proprietors are friendly and interested in giving you a great stay, along with large doses of the East... More

I stayed for 4 nights from Nov. 30th 2015. Did not want to go home! Highly recommend room 3 which is an executive suite with 4 poster bed and panoramic sea view. Best bed I've ever slept in - so comfortable! Everything possible was done to ensure that I was happy, warm and welcomed. Excellent breakfast with fresh food, a... More

There's nothing bad to say about this hotel - the staff/owners were extremely friendly, the room was lovely, and very individual - I'm more used to chain hotels, so this was a novelty for me :o) Breakfast was cooked to order, and to perfection, and again served with a smile!

I spent the night here while I was on a reminiscing tour of the area from my childhood. The location is perfect-on the sea cliff. The perfect spot for a gentle stroll beside the sea. The house is interesting being the residence of Benjamin Britten for a significant period of his life. (Hence the name) The place is spotless and... More

We had a lovely weekend break, this is the second visit and we will certainly return for a third when we are in the area. I would recommend this B & B to anyone, superb clean and comfortable accommodation with wonderful breakfast too. Colin and Ann were lovely hosts and very warm and welcoming!

Good selection of fruit, cereal and cooked food. Small free car park that we were able to park in that is part of the property. All... More

Thank you for your lovely genuine review. We enjoy welcoming all of our guests whether old friends returning or new. I am glad the wedding went perfectly and that you were able to enjoy our breakfast. I have to say breakfasts are always a cheery event with lots of banter inbetween the fresh fruit salad and cooked breakfast. We are... More
