4 of us and a dog spent 2 nights there. Barbara was very welcoming and gave us all the information we needed for our stay. We stayed in room 9 on the first floor. The room is very spacious, the bathroom a little small but there is a washbasin in the room to maximise available space. Our friends and their... More

The Twin room 9 is huge and a mirror image of room 8 but unfortunatley both not dog friendly. The Seaview King room though is made for dogs though smaller then 9 has an area beside the ensuite. Trouble is that was booked on the days of your stay. The top rooms are ideal for dogs too but as you... More

Beautiful bed and breakfast with wonderful owners. Barbara greeted us warmly even though we were incredibly late. When we were shown our room (number 8) we couldn't believe our eyes. The room was huge and the bed was massive. The breakfast was wonderful and beautifully cooked. Bob and Barbara you are the hosts with the most! Nothing was too much... More

Barbara is the perfect host friendly and welcoming, giving out keys, offering hairdryer and WiFi. The whole place was spotless, the bed was comfortable and the seaview spectacular. Breakfast was lovely, our eggs (scrambled and poached) were perfectly cooked, orange juice and coffee fresh and delicious. So nice to be child free, no noisy background music and no list of... More

Hi Thanks for great review. The Superking Room is especially large and the bed is huge. You are our first Booking.com guests this year and so glad you enjoyed the stay. Look out for discounts late season. See you then. Kind regards Bob and Barbara More

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

Hello, Thank you for the nice review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. You know we are opposite the dunes and can wander across to the watergardens.

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
