I stayed at Marlborough for one night as I had work nearby the following morning. I didn't have particularly high expectations for a B&B in Yarmouth, but I was very pleasantly surprised. The host John gave me a warm welcome and was very kind and helpful. I had booked a single, and he made sure I had the largest one.... More

We couldn't ask for a warmer and more helpful reception for our mini break to Great Yarmouth. The room was ensuite and well appointed with everything you could need for a comfortable short stay. The breakfast was really tasty and set us up for the day and included full English, toast and more toast , fresh fruit yoghurt and cereals... More

We had top front room with double and single bed. Required climbing 3 levels of stairs which would have only been difficult with luggage. Proprietor offered to carry luggage which would overcome the problem for less able viistors. Good location. Close to action of beachfront and entertainment. Excellent breakfast with continental and full English available. Breakfast cooked on request and... More

Lovely room (room 1), very spacious and well provided. Lots of light and very relaxing. Breakfast was lovely in the morning, plenty to choose from! Room 3 was a bit snug but perfect for our family needs! Beach was literally just down the road and so was all the shops. Perfect location! Would recommend!

Lots to choose from. It's in a good location. 5 minutes from beach one way and 5 minutes to town and bus and train station. The only disappointment... More

Greeted with a warm welcome, given a parking permit and our room key. Room was cosy and comfortable, we had room 4 which had a nice bay window. Ensure was small but adequate, rather that than a shared bathroom or one outside the room. The only blot on the landscape was the terrible wallpapering skills of whomever decorated the room!...

upon arrival we nearly walked straight out again as the smell was just disgusting, can only be described as stale old people and cigarette smoke, when we went up to our room we were not surprised to find the same stench, the decoration is very dated and the wallpaper must have been put up by a child, very unprofessional finish....
