This was our 3rd visit to the Shrewsbury and as before we were made extremely welcome by the owners Sandie & Tony. On arrival this year we were upgraded (free) to a junior suite which they had just refurbished, we couldn't believe our luck. The room boasted a 6ft super king bed, plenty of storage, a sofa bed (double), which... More

Just back from a weeks stay. Sandie and Tony really go out of their way to make you feel at home. You are offered a drink on arrival and I had one of the nicest rooms I have had in a guest house. Bed was comfy and nice to relax in with a cuppa on after a days sightseeing. It... More

I booked up all the rooms except one for a weekend in June. The entire group felt it was the best place we have stayed in Great Yarmouth, and we've stayed in a few! On arrival we were made to feel very welcome after a long and fairly cold ride there, we were given off road parking and looked after... More

I was offered a drink and immediately made to feel at home.The room was spacious,clean with towels and drink making facilities.

I've stayed with the owners Sandie & Tony on seven or so visits since 2004 during the Caister Soul Weekender events - I simply won't go anywhere else now! They're so accommodating they change the breakfast time to allow us to get up later. The Shrewsbury is clean of sound standard and very well decorated. Thanks again Sandie & Tony.... More

On arrival you are greeted by the owner Sandie. She asks if you want complementary tea or coffee. If you require a parking space then let them know before arrival and you can have a free one at the back of the hotel. The hotel is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. In your room you have everything you need. Tea/coffee... More

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
