I have never come across a hotel before that charges for a cancellation AT ANY TIME until now. In the small print it states this hotel will charge you 100% of the first night regardless of how much notice you give. I gave 2 weeks notice and it still cost me £80. Despite attempts, they would not budge. DO NOT... More

Brittenann, Owner at Britten House, responded to this review

There are now so many guests who make reservations to secure accommodation, mainly through on-line Travel Agents, with the intention of cancelling. If nearer the time they can find a late deal or dependant on sunny weather conditions. Having often held rooms for months, to have a last minute cancellation, after turning away numerous requests. We changed our cancellation policy,... More

The owners of this house helped me out loads as I was planning a wedding and had lots of family and friends coming to Lowestoft. All the guests that stayed here were impressed with the facilities, comfort and (most mentioned) breakfast! I popped in often and had the pleasure to meet 'Benjamin' himself, what a treat!

Really great place, but have to give poor overall score as room I was in (booked specifically for the big spar bath) had no cold water due to a fault. They were aware of the fault, and really I don't think the room should have been used. Great breakfasts, large room, some (but limited - pot luck) parking, and lovely... More

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

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. The mirror in Elgar has an infer-red sensor below it and a shelf would hamper its use. But there is a cupboard under the sink for storage of bathroom items. It is lovely to hear that you enjoyed your breakfast and stay and we hope to see you again next... 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
