Exactly what you need from a B and B. Good Location, clean, friendly hosts and good breakfast... Even magiced up an additional room for me when I made a cock up, do I need to say any more? Nope, just go and stay there!!

Very nice, friendly and welcoming b&b. The landlady went out if he way to serve me breakfast early as here on business and packed me up a fresh pack lunch. Stayed in single room with shared shower and shared toilet. However, the place is full and no one else is sharing so it's like en suite but "out suite" Room... More

We had a lovely one night stay at this guest house in early July. We were lucky enough to get one of the few parking spots directly outside the property and the permit we were given allowed us to stay for 24 hours. We received a great welcome on arrival and the family room we were allocated on the second... More

I have not stayed at Sandcastles guesthouse, I'm sure it's very nice, but am writing, as just cancelled a booking for a few nights in September. I should have read the cancellation policy. Unbelievably, one is charged £47.00 to cancel, even though it's months ahead. I looked at other guests house, and their policy is pay a percentage cancelling fee,... More

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

We are sorry to hear of your sad news. We do charge a non-refundable deposit of the first night at the time of booking to protect ourselves from 'no shows' which unfortunately do occur and this is common practice for guest houses in our area, however we do refund when contacted by the guest in some circumstances. As we have... More

Some previous reviews have not given this guest house good reviews - so was a bit dubious, but can honestly say was impressed. yes the room we had on the top floor (room 6) was small but was adequate for our needs. Had en-suite facilities and did clearly state that if you require extra tea/coffee/biscuits there was an extra charge... More

My partner and I had an excellent stay at this guesthouse! Check in was from 2pm but we arrived at 11.45 after a 3 hour drive. I was aware that we were too early to check in but we were given a parking permit so we could park virtually outside the front door for free. We returned at 2pm and... More

Found this bed and breakfast online after we decided on a last minute overnight stay in Yarmouth. Sandcastles is situated a stones throw from the beach and arcades, we found the parking to be very easy (one bug bear we often find about areas like this is the parking which can quite often be near impossible) but on this occasion...

We had a lovely stay at this guesthouse. Owners were lovely and friendly and we will be going back. Plenty of hot water and food was hot too, evening meals available on request. Clean and tidy really enjoyed our stay and would recommend.
