We stayed here for three nights,and have to say we enjoyed it. Geoff & Sheila are very nice,helpful and genuine people. The room was very clean and cosy. Fruit&biscuits. Breakfast was lovely. 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....

Very warm welcome. Lovely, comfortable, en suite room with TV, wifi and drink making facilities. Great standard, reasonably priced. Highly recommended. Very clean and quiet. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will be looking out for rooms here in the future.

Just returned from a three night stop and we were very happy with our choice of B & B. Location is absolutely ideal as it is a short walk into town and to all main seafront attractions. We received a lovely welcome and the parking permit was brilliant and room very clean, thank you. Added extras like cartons of juice... More

Only stayed for one night but received a really friendly welcome. The room was spacious and comfortable, it had tea and coffee making facilities with biscuits and fruit and bottled water. We were given a parking permit which lasted for the duration of our stay. The location is perfect for all of Yarmouth's attractions. The breakfast was the best I... More
