    Firstly I would like to agree with all the positive reviews that The Shrewsbury has received. It's a great traditional Seaside B&B, ideally located 2 minutes walk from the sea front, the owners are welcoming, it's very comfortable & clean and the breakfast is very good. Everything you need for short / weekend break in Great Yarmouth. Up until I... More

    Good food, good local knowledge and advice as a result. The town centre is close by as is the see front. We love staying here and now they have even more guest rooms and therefore a greater choice of comfort. The standards are high and if they weren't would we still go there? John & Gill Goffe

    recommend this guest house and the hosts without reservation. Sandie and Tony could not do more, if you do not like it here,there is a problem with you! Stayed in some top class hotels and although this is a guest house, this has exceeded some of them for service etc
