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.

Both the host and hostess have always been friendly and helpful on the occasions that I have frequented this charming old house, the rooms have always been very clean and tidy and well set out, I would have no problem recommending Swiss Cottage, I personally look forward to my return visit next year.

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.

I had booked a single room which was totally inadequate as the size was so small that I had a problem as to where I would put my luggage. The bathroom was tiny, and the sink so small that I could...

Stayed previously last year with my 2 daughters and decided to give it another go as the hotel was spotlessly clean with excellent hosts and a great breakfast. I can't praise the hosts enough because nothing is too much trouble. I would recommend the Swiss Cottage to anyone and is in an ideal position just outside the town on the... More
