A local hotel had overbooked and offered members of our family this as an alternative. In fact the place and owners have more character and charm than the original booking and I would stay here by choice next time

I travel a lot with work and am mostly happy to stay in impersonal hotels where I just go to sleep. I make an exception in Lowestoft and always stay at Britten House B&B. The welcome is always great, the rooms quirky and comfortable and the breakfast outstanding. Hadn't been for over 2 years until Wednesday this week and was... More

It was lovely to see you again and we are very happy that you enjoyed your stay. I had a little giggle about the butter. It is attention to detail. Colin likes the butter to be at the correct temperature for the guests to spread on their toast so he prepares it, ready. Ignore Colin's comments about the solar powered... More

A delightful stay at Britten House over the new year! A beautiful property to stay oozing with History, character and comfort. Lovely attention to detail, perfect hosts and breakfast was amazing! Blue Flag beaches, nice bars and restaurants within walking distance.Thank-you for a truly wonderful New Year break.

Thank you for your lovely review. Our Blue Flag Beach is fantastic. Directly below us on the beach the tide when it goes out leaves a huge, shallow lagoon which is fantastic for children to paddle and play in, because it is shallow it is warm in the summer and the lifeguard station is also there. Perhaps you will visit... More

I travelled to Lowestoft with my ageing and slightly disabled Mum, we were attending a wedding reception in the hotel opposite. The Guest house/hotel was exceptionally clean, well furnished, all the comfort aiding trimmings, pleasant and humorous greeting, filling my Mum with extra confidence.

Thank you for your review. How nice it is when family's take the time to bring their elderly relatives with them.

Stayed at Britten House on Saturday night and found it to be a very nice place. We were made to feel welcome and had a very pleasant room with sea views. The room was well equipped and the full English breakfast was the best I have had for a long time. Excellent value for money.

We always try to exceed expectations. Our two ground floor rooms do not have sea views but are excellent.
