Bedroom was lovely and beautifully decorated with everything you need, lovely views and 5 minutes from the shops. Had a ensuite bathroom and shower, bed was really comfortable too. Owners were friendly and really accomodating. Would definitely stay there again :)

I stayed at the Taunton Guest House with my girlfriend to get away for my 30th birthday. We were stuck between two destinations, Great Yarmouth and Brighton and the reason why we ended up choosing Great Yarmouth was due to the impressive reviews the Taunton Guest House had. Did the previous reviews live up to their hype, yes they did!... More

Ray and Mary are the perfect hosts as they offer a very warm & friendly welcome to their wonderful guest house in a quiet part of town. Nothing was too much trouble for them as they catered for our dietary needs. They offer as standard a vegetarian option alongside their "full English", but I also mentioned when booking that we...

Thank you for your lovely review Neil & Helen We are both taken a back by how special dietary needs are not always met and feel proud that we are doing something right.

My wife and I had a short break at the Taunton House hotel in Great Yarmouth in September 2014. The first thing we noticed when we arrived was how clean it was. We saw this as soon as we approached and entered the building. Our room was tastefully decorated and the bed was very comfortable. The en suite bath-room was... More
