A very friendly and dog loving place.. Susan was an excellent hostess, and the rooms were very clean. (one of the best places I have stayed in, and very much cleaner than some that dont allow dogs) Very close to all amenities. The sea was a five minute walk away and town centre only ten minutes away. There is a... More

I must admit that when we booked this B&B we didn't realise it was dog friendly or that it allowed smoking in some bed rooms. Dogs certainly don't bother us and being a social smoker, I can't really complain about that. Landlady was very friendly and helpful indeed. Room was fine although shower had a small problem. I can see... More

The smell in this b&b is awful, luckily does not smell as bad in the rooms. Didn't like that the room was a smoking room - should have said when booked. Toilet also smelled awful and got worse when flushed. Though as only staying for short trip it would do as we wanted to be out most of the time... More

Having read this review, it is very similar to the last one, and both reviewers seem to come from Norfolk, Does make me wonder if someone out there does not like me and yet i am such a lovely person lol. If you did stay here then i am very sorry for the issues you had and wished you had... More

Walked in walked out! Absolutely disgusting smell,how this place is recommended amazes me. Dirty and smelly. Stairs are dangerous, complete fire hazard. Bedroom was cramped and dirty. If you are absolutely desperate take a tent or sleep in your car,got to be better than sleeping at seashells!

I have already informed trip advisor about this review as it is completely unjustified. Nobody has walked in or walked out, I have a fire inspection every year so i do not know why they would say i am a fire hazard. All i can say about this review is that this person has never been here, and i have... More

Stayed here last week overnight with 2 Westies. Both had full English breakfast &dogs got a sausage for their breakfast! All for £50 - bargain. Will definitely go again. Been to "fancier" B & B's without atmosphere & friendliness. Sue was a treasure.

We stayed in the K9 family room. It was clean and tidy. Huge double bed, sink in bedroom, toilet and shower in en-suite. A friendly chap booked us in and helped take our bags to the room. The room included dog food and water bowls and a big warm blanked for him to sleep on. Breakfast in the morning consisted... More

We chose Seashells as we could take our collie with us. Sue makes every effort to make you feel welcome and loves dogs with a passion. The room was spacious and comfortable with all the usual refinements such as a large TV with freeview and tea and coffee facilities. The room was spotless and you would never guess that there...
