We chose this B&B mainly because of the excellent reviews and then looking at the price £48 per night (Very Cheap) we booked. Upon arrival the host wasn't as welcoming as we were led to believe on reading several reviews, more interested in observing another family on the road. We were checked-in and shown the room - Room 2. The... More

Unfortunately I had to knock the door of this couple at 10.30am on the day of departure and ask them if they were ready to check out, they were not yet dressed and seemed to feel that they have been greatly inconvenienced. They had voiced not a single problem in two days until coming down to pay and check out... More

We stayed in the family room which had a double bed and a bunk bed. Everything was cleaned to a high standard: the bedclothes smelled lovely and fresh. Some lovely touches including:... More

Thank you for taking the time to review, it is lovely to know that you enjoyed your time in Great Yarmouth. We have children ourselves and do try to provide items (toys, DVD's and cutlery) that can make the stay away from home a little easier. More

We stayed for 2 nights at this guest house and felt welcome from the moment we stepped through the door. It's location in Yarmouth is perfect and located close to the sea front.

Thank you for reviewing. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. The room that you stayed in is advertised as a family room for two adults and a child under 10. The room contains a double bed and a z-bed which is intended for use by a small child and is not substantial enough to be comfortable... More

We booked at the very last minute so didn't really know what to expect especially as it was so cheap. I have to say from the minute we pulled up in the car I knew it would be nice, the exterior is very clean and smart looking. Our room was on the top floor and was very quiet we didn't... More
