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...

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
