Barbara made me feel really welcome, I felt relaxed and spoilt. Nice, fresh, clean room with sea view. Bed large and comfy, slept really well. Breakfast (cooked by Bob i believe) plentiful, well cooked and piping hot. Particularly enjoyed the fresh fruit salads, a different one each morning. Location quiet, everything I could have wanted and more. Definitely a good... More

Barbara could not have been more welcoming. (Bob too, when we saw him!) Tastefully decorated throughout, gorgeous large windows, clean and bright, overlooking the seafront.The room was large, with an even larger bed. (My husband complained he couldn't get close enough to me to kick me when I snored!) Lovely linen and towels, toiletries, tea, coffee and biscuits and TV... More

Located at the Northern end of Great Yarmouth seafront (the nice end), over the road is the lovely Venetian style waterways gardens and beyond this a fine sandy beach. With some sea view rooms, and plenty of options for single, families and couples, Bob & Barbara's guest house is a wonderful mix of modern and original features that reflect the... More

We stayed at Swiss Cottage Hotel for a week and was most impressed with the comfortable beds and wonderful sea view room, which was tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. It was pleasant to be in a smoke freeh environment. We liked the off-road parking and the fact that we could take the short walk through the gardens to the pier... More

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.

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.
