Having contacted the local Tourist Information Office we were given the number of The Sandcastle. I'm so glad we were. It's a welcoming well maintained and homely place to stay. We arrived late due to delays and were warmly welcomed. We were asked what time we would like to have breakfast and what we would like. We had room 1,... More

Another lovely stay. Had rooms 1,2 & 4 for the family. All rooms extemely clean and comfortable. Ensuite facilities all very good. Spent a lovely hour soaking in the bath in ensuite room 4. Alan, the host this weekend, was very welcoming. Breakfast this morning was lovely and just the job after a good family night out. Can't praise highly... More

Stayed here on a business trip, only here for one night but the room was spotless, the bed comfy, the owner friendly, and the food brilliant. There was free parking out the front and a good sea view. Also the owners promptly posted me back some clothes I didn't realise I left behind - thanks so much!

Lovely room with a great view, don't worry about what other people say the noise is so mild we slept with the window open. Breaky was awesome. This place is close to everything and the owners go out of their way for you. Long story short, great place to stay on Lowestoft.

Stayed at the lovely Sandcastle on Saturday 14th of June. 2 rooms (3 & 4). Room 4 (top floor) is lovely. Sea view & breeze. En-suite wonderful - had a lovely relax in the roll-top bath. Clean, bright, homely - can't recommend enough. Shower had wonderful pressure, towels fluffy, bed comfortable. Room 3 quite snug, so for our return visit... More
