We arrived after a long drive, tired and hungry, only to learn that we would not be allowed to stay at the "Swiss Cottage" except in a small attic room -- because my wife smokes. Not that she was going to smoke in the room, or in the B&B, or on the grounds, but because she smokes at all. The... More

Such a shame for this couple. After travelling from Germany to arrive and hear they cannot stay must have been a shock. We always ask guests to sign the booking form on arrival which accepts the law and confirm with them they understand it. Having a number of rooms booked with guests all non smokers we could do no more... More

We have just spent 4 nights at Swiss Cottage and could not have asked for anything. Better. Barbara was very friendly helpful and welcoming. Our room was very comfortable and lovely and clean as was the rest of the B&B . We would recommend Swiss Cottage to anyone and look forward to visiting again in the future.

Barbara welcomed us and was most helpful, interested and knowledgeable about the locality. Our room was very comfortable, spacious and clean with uninterrupted views across the dunes to the sea. Each day, it was a pleasure to partake of... More

From the first friendly greeting till the time you leave, nothing is to much trouble. The room, we stayed in number 7, was spotlessly clean and is very well equipped, the double bed was very comfortable. How can we describe the breakfast, perfect, well cooked, well presented. filling with plenty of choice. It is very close to the sea and... More

Hello I received this lovely review from you but I know it is not about our place. The Swiss Cottage in Great Yarmouth. I have been in contact with iknow who has asked about an email from you on 15th May. Not to us. So reckon they have a bit of a twist of places. If you have details of... More

I would certainly recommend Swiss Cottage. The location is wonderful at the quieter north end of Great Yarmouth, immediately on the attractive sea front with an easy walk down to the beach and also walking distance into the town. The rooms are spotless and the lounge and dining area are peaceful. The owners are very helpful and friendly. I have... More

Very comfortable and clean. On the end of the main stretch from the centre of Great Yarmouth, but comfortable walking distance. Views over looking the gardens and sea very welcoming in the morning. Good breakfast, plenty of choice. Owners very pleasant. Would recommend and stay again.

I can't believe that anyone could be unhappy with the facilities here. We have always been very comfortable and well looked after and have no hesitation in recommending Swiss Cottage to family and friends.
