Upon arrival we were greeted by someone who looked like a maintenance man, did not really explain anything, gave me the keys and left us to get on with it. Asked what time we wanted breakfast but did not explain where to go. the rooms were nice, shame that the bathrooms were so small. There were a few spiders in... More

Thank you for your positive review & your constructive feedback. I am sorry you were not greeted by myself, unfortunately when guests arrive during the day & I am not in I sometimes have to ask friends to step in & this was the shy 15 year old son of a friend! I know he looks older being 6' 1"... More

Stayed in an ensuite room with my partner and a friend! Great place and lovely owners. Close to city center and just across the road from the beach (stayed earlier this year, though just getting around to posting now) :)

Just had a couple of nights here and have to say for the money it was good. Good location right on the sea front within walking distance of Lowestoft town centre and some really good eating places including a fabulous chinese restaurant just a short walk up the road. We had an attic room at the front which suited us... More

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 at Wave Crest for a total of ten days for work. I stayed in the single bedroom the first 5 days and then in the double bedroom the last 5 days. Both on the first floor and both had amazing views overlooking the sea. Ask for rooms at the front. Sue who runs it was lovely and was... More

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

Have just returned from a 2 night stay at the Wavecrest, having been to the Latitude Festival on the Saturday. It is situated right on the sea front, with parking outside. We had room 1 which was on the top floor, and can be either a king size or twin I think, it had good unrestricted sea view as well.... More
