Really enjoyed my recent stay at the Norfolk Guest House. The place has a real ' homely' feeling to it, and very welcoming atmosphere. My room was immaculately clean and fresh and everything was beautifully presented. I was made to feel incredibly welcome and both Rob and Dee were extremely attentive, and very warm and friendly. The cooked breakfast was... More

Rob and Dee are to be congratulated. Exceptionally clean, and made to feel very welcome. Clearly a lot of effort is p experience at this Guest House. I wouldn't hesitate to make the very highest recommendation.

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 very much for your lovely review of our Guest House. We understand that sometimes, when people work away from home, it makes it easier if where you're staying gives you the homely touch. Several of our regular guests have told us they feel right at home here and we are so pleased you did too. It was lovely... 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.

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.

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.
