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

A wonderful B&B at central location next to sea. We had a seaview from our cozy hotel room and shower room with very well working shower (good pressure). Breakfast was comprehensive and delicious and very friendly host couple made us feel very welcome. If we ever visit Lowestoft again, i know where to book a room without a doubt!

The Sandcastle is superbly located, being right near to the beach with lovely sea views but still only 5 minutes walk from the town centre with bars and restaurants etc. We stayed for one night in the twin room which had a sea view and was nicely decorated and had really comfortable beds. The bathroom was not en suite but... More

This b&b seems to be overrated. Our blue room had extremely small bathroom with the shower between the sink and the toilet- no shower curtain-everything in those 2m3 gets WET. Only shower gel for men was available and no bath mat was provided. This room does not deserve 4* accreditation.Breakfast room had one big table, so we had to share... More

Great rooms, lovely people, yummy breakfast! Staying here set us up perfectly for walking the coastal path. Definitely beyond expectations, great value too and just a few minutes easy walk from the station.
