I am an engineer and my job requires me to travel around England. This hotel is just what you need after a busy day of work. It is very relaxing, clean, impressive service, fast, excellent and cheap. You will experience 5 star service in this beautiful well kept and well organised place. Also the sea view in front is amazing.... More

Thank you for your lovely comments which we very much appreciate. It was super meeting you and have you stay with us for your short break. We do try to make it clear to our guests that we are not directly on the seafront but are the first building just off it. Some en-suite double rooms do have balcony access... More

My wife and I spent three nights at the Norfolk and have to admit it was one of our best experiences of any accommodation. The guest House is run by Robin and Dee Northcut and they seem to have understood what travellers want and like. Although a small guest house there is everything you would need and the service is...

Thank you both for such a lovely review about our guest house. We are so pleased you found everything to your satisfaction, especially our breakfast. Although we ask guests to pre-order breakfast they can of course change their mind in the morning, it's only to give us a rough idea and reduce any potential waste to a minimum. Thank you... More

I have just spent four days staying here and it was absolutely fantastic,. The house is clean and bright and Rob and Dee are kind, considerate and nothing is too much trouble. They both have a wonderful sense of humour and I looked forward to breakfast times immensely. I did a lot of walking and these were enough to sustain... More

We stayed at our No.1 choice of Guest Houses in Felixstowe in early July for 4 days. We were visiting family in the area. It was our second visit to The Norfolk and it equalled our first for being exceptionally clean and well appointed, the towel designs made us laugh especially the monkeys! The breakfast was once again delicious. Rob... More

We stayed at this wonderful guest house from 11th July 2014 to 14th July 2014 and can not praise Rob and Dee enough for their hospitality. The room was spotless, towels and bedding first class quality and the breakfast was superb. We highly recommend this little gem.

After our third visit to the Norfolk, I felt compelled to write how amazing our experience was yet again. The room is just super clean, and Rob's breakfast are just so delicious. We especially like the chipolata sausages. We loved the fresh daffodils in the room, the cute towels made into animals and the great bubble bath. Rob and Dee... More

We are so pleased you enjoyed your vist here again. We hope your trip to Chatsworth House was all you expected it to be. Although your kind compliment about Rob's breakfast is very much appreciated it is in fact Dee who does the cooking, Rob does the 'front of house' bit. We look forward to your next visit. More
