Probably the tastiest breakfasts we have eaten in a B&B or hotel and the view of the salt marshes from the very comfortable four poster room was magnificent. We had a great time in this very friendly establishment.

First of all, I'd like to say that the Old Customs House is a lovely place to stay in a great location overlooking the harbour. Our room (The Captains Cabin) was very nice with a comfortable bed and the owner is very friendly and sociable. Also the breakfast was very nice. Just a few minor things like a massive choice...

My partner & I plus our two dogs booked a last minute seaside trip before Xmas this year. I love this part of the Norfolk coast and I managed to catch up with my family who are local to Wells. We have been to Wells lots of times before but never noticed this B&B before, but it said dog friendly... More

Used trusted TA again but the photos on the Web page finally sold it to me. I wanted somewhere special and a surprise birthday treat and wasn't disappointed. The owners Peter and Maddie were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. I opted for the four poster room which had wonderful views out to sea. The room was spacious... More

We stayed as a couple at the end of November for two nights. We found Peter, the owner, very friendly and accomodating as we arrived slighty early but were still able to get into our room. The room itself was very comfortable with en suite and all the coffee / tea making facilities you could want. Bed itself was very... More

Boats outside your window, lovely location and fabulous hosts. We stayed in the downstairs twin room. Very comfortable for two. Little kitchen is an added bonus. We absolutely loved it. Oh, and the breakfast was top notch.

My partner and I came up last weekend for a break and had an amazing stay here. The hosts are very friendly and provided us with fresh milk :) and a delicious breakfast which was served around one lovely table so we could talk with the other guests. I had poached eggs which were cooked to perfection! We stayed in... More

I spent a very enjoyable night at this delightful B n B. The room was large, clean and cosy. The hosts were friendly and welcoming. They served a delicious breakfast in the beautiful wood panelled dining room They welcomed my little dog, which is what made me pick them in the first place. On top of that the location right...
