Excellent location. We were greeted by Jo who was very friendly and showed us to our room. Lovely comfy beds, clean throughout. Adequate storage space for hanging clothes and a chest of drawers. Kettle/cups/coffee sachets etc provided in your room (reasonable priced) a little folder was provided with local information. Breakfast was included and a good range of food available.... More

This has been our 4th year in a row and it is still as lovely as ever! Jo is a fantastic host and is always there if you need any help and is always cheerful in the mornings. The breakfasts are absolutely amazing - especially the sausages! We hadn't even walked out the door after paying and have already booked... More

Had a lovely stay for one night good value for money and near the attractions. Also breakfast was very good and plenty of different choices and enjoyable. There was also a wide range of DVDS if the weather not good which I thought was a very good idea.

My family of four 2 adults and 2 14 year old children recently stayed at the Sandcastle Guest House for 2 nights. This guest is very charming and just what you would expect of an English B&B. We stayed in a family room one double and double bunks with our own ensuite. We found this room to be very small... More

Joanne H, Owner at Sandcastles Guest House, responded to this review

One of the rooms had been made up as a single and an extra cup and towels were provided along with an apology and explanation within a few minutes of arrival. All of our rooms have opening windows and these guests had the windows open. We are close to the seafront and there can sometimes be night time noise. Despite... More

We stopped at Sandcastles the day before going on the Broads. Lovely, hotel! We had a small double bedroom which was ideal with everything you could need. Breakfast was extremely high quality as was the service. Very reasonably priced accomodation and this was our first visit to Great Yarmouth, which I thought was a wonderful, clean resort. I would highly... More
