From the outside, we had no reason to worry at all. We were shown to the room, which looked as it we had stepped back into the 80's. Truly awful. Toilet was filthy, with no extractor fan. Only window was a skylight, and nothing to open it with. Mattresses incredibly uncomfortable. Everything was dirty. Breakfast, a full English, was served... More

We recently booked just one night at this hotel as we were spending a day at Great Yarmouth and and evening at the dog races with our friends. I couldn't believe the state of the rooms! Carpet ripped and not fitted! Dirty shower, torn bed sheets, mildew on the walls... the list goes on. Never ever again. Disgusting!!!

We had a great stay at this hotel, the price was cheap and service outstanding. We were met by the owner Peter in the car park, who showed us to our rooms and checked everything was okay. We were able to check-in at 11am. Had a big full English breakfast, and the food / drinks were quality not the cheap... More

The Arona is in a pleasant location near the beach and within walking distance of the town. Most of the staff were friendly and courteous. The bedrooms were pleasant and the beds were comfortable. However in the six nights that we stayed the bins were emptied and toilet roll replaced but no room cleaning was undertaken. Access to the upper... More

The hotel itself was lovely and clean as was the room, The meals were fantastic and service brilliant. Room was spacious but loo rolls were thin so take your... More

Bacon was see through and cereal stale, I had to ask for my toast to be done properly as it was white when it reached my table. We felt that the... More
