At short notice, sandie and tony were able to fit us in for a 3 night stay, and the standards that have been set are certainly being maintained. We were in room 4 and it has the biggest bed I have ever seen. Now most men will agree with me here when I say I have spent most of my... More

There are lots of accomodation to choose from in Great Yarmouth but I would certainly recommend The Shrewsbury. Hosts were very friendly and welcoming. The location of the B & B is very good. Our room was a good size and clean, we had a very comfortable night sleep. Breakfast in the morning was delicious. Would certainly stay again

On arrival we where met by Sandie. Drinks offered while unloading the car and a lovely coffee was made after a two half hour drive. The room was lovely and clean and the four poster bed was a treat and drink making facility in your room was handy. Breakfast was always nice and hot and plenty of tea and coffee... More

Yet again Sandie and Tony made us feel welcome, relaxed and offer an excellent customer experience. They still serve the best cooked breakfast I've ever had and the room was clean and comfortable. Great location. I cannot recommend this guest house enough!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The award-winning Shrewsbury Guest House is ideally situated approx. 300 yds from the beach and four minutes through the park to the town centre. A substantial amount of money has been invested in refurbishing and upgrading the property to a very high standard and our new Four Poster Suite and Junior Suite are both proving very popular with our guests as these comfortable suites with lounge areas allow a relaxing time with a home from home experience. We also offer en-suite twin and double rooms and a 2 room family unit. Old and new guests will appreciate the changes that have been made to the Shrewsbury and the attention to detail that has been achieved. Guest comments and suggestions are taken seriously and when possible acted upon. ... more   less
