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

We stayed at this B&B bank holiday weekend, and can genuinely find no fault. On arrival we were advised of where to park and the surrounding area. Joanne made a big fuss of our children 3 & 5 years and showed them where there were toys and DVD's for them to use. We were shown to our room, which was... More

Stayed for 3 nights with my wife and 7 year old daughter. Made to feel very welcome immediately. Rooms clean, beds comfy, tea & coffee making facilities and free view TV with a DVD player. Ideally situated for everything, I did not use a bus or taxi once. Fantastic value for money and will definitely stay again.
