Britten's birthplace, restored with period furniture, comfortable bed, modern amenities, scrupulously clean, well organised, extremely well looked after, and above all, attention to all the details that complete the seaside B&B experience. Breakfasts were of excellent quality with locally sourced ingredients, and served with wit and charm! Car parking is limited at the location, but on-street, free parking is a... More

We had a wonderful stay in the beautiful Britten House! We wanted to go somewhere lovely for our 21st Anniversary. Colin is such a lovely host and made us feel most welcome, sorry I didn't get to meet Ann - perhaps next time! Colin told us the best places to eat and we had a lovely meal at The Harbour... More

We had a comfortable room with a lovely sea view. Owners Colin and Ann were very friendly and helpful.The breakfasts were delicious, especially the nice, creamy scrambled eggs. The street outside was surprisingly quiet considering it's the seafront. There's a classy Chinese restaurant next door, or it's a short walk to the town centre. Recommended.

If you're looking for somewhere to stay in Lowestoft, you'll be doing yourself a favour by booking in to Britten House on Kirkley Cliff Road. We've just enjoyed another weekend at Britten House and when in Lowestoft wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. The owners Ann & Colin provide an efficiently run B&B, very comfortable rooms, immaculately clean en-suite, a... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this very welcoming guest house and would gladly return if we found ourselves back in the area. The house is nicely furnished, well-decorated and very clean - the owners obviously take great pride in giving their clients the best, they even provided a shoe tray in the room for dirty or wet shoes.

Thank you for your review. Just a quick note to say we do have our own car park which is for guests which is located behind Britten House. We are on a one way system so you do need to access the parking via Cliff Road just before you arrive at Britten House, the road at the front is unrestricted... More

Colin and Ann were lovely, the rooms were clean, the breakfasts delicious and it is a historic house, the birthplace of Benjamin Britten, hence the name. We had a lovely welcome and Ann recommended a few places to eat. We discovered a couple of the restaurants are shut on Tuesdays. Nice quiet road which was good for someone like me... More
