A cheap overnight while working away from home in Lowestoft found me here at short notice. A really nice clean room. No on suit unfortunately but you cant have evetything for under £50 can you. Recommended if you're on a budget looking for clean accommodation and a good breakfast

I have stayed at Wavecrest a couple of times over the last twelve months. Before that, I stayed in a nearby hotel, where the price was double and the service the same. During last year's summer period, this nearby hotel was fully booked and I was forced to find something else. This nice B&B was recommended by colleagues and their... More

A good quality, welcoming Guest House. The room was warm and well-equipped; wi-fi is good. The owners are very friendly and the breakfast is of an excellent standard. Sea views at the front are very relaxing!

I stayed two nights over the Summer Bank Holiday in the single room on the first floor facing the sea. I arrived in the afternoon by train and knew that the owners wouldn't be in to greet me, though I hoped the person who'd open the door for me would give me a friendly greeting. A man, who didn't even... More

We had stayed at Wavecrest two years previously and were very impressed. It was clean and well furnished, the owner was friendly and the breakfast delicious and we had a lovely break. However this time around we were not so lucky. When we arrived there was no-one there and when we phoned the B&B it went to answerphone and gave... More

We had a pleasant stay at the Wavecrest guest house. Our room, which was overlooking the sea, was clean, modern and well furnished. The staff were friendly and helpful and breakfast was excellent. The guest house is well placed for the town and surrounding areas and parking the car was no problem.

A friendly, family run guest house since 1987, highly recommended by our regular guests who return every year. We are situated on the seafront between Lowestoft's two piers, directly opposite the award winning south beach. Five bedrooms - 4 en suite, 1 private facilities. Three rooms have a superb sea view. Just 5 minutes walk from the railway and bus stations and the town center, we find this a great place to live as well as to holiday. ... more   less
