“Very Good Hotel - Poor Breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

As per all our numerous stays at a PTI we can provide the following feedback:

Location – TICK - Excellent for Lowestoft / Great Yarmouth / Pleasurewood Hills. Southwold is only about 25 mins away also.

Reception Staff – TICK – Warm, welcoming and informative.

Room – TICK – Good standard we have come now to both expect and receive

Food – hmmmm…..
On arrival (26/5) we were told that the next door pub the Foxborough was very busy and there were no tables before 21:00, however we went over at 19:00 and ate in the lounge (same menu / prices) and got a table immediately. Food arrived shortly after ordering and no complaints at all.
Breakfast :( - Quite simply was awful.. We booked a slot on arrival for 08:45. We sat at our table more or less on time, however from ordering the food to its arrival took 35 mins. When it arrived it looked liked it had been sat underneath the heat lamps for the same time and was next to inedible.
There were not enough staff and not of the standard you should expect from a PTI. To quote my 9 year old daughter “that was the worst breakfast we have ever had away Daddy”. This could have been a one off, but we would not stay here again, have the distinct feeling that the management or restaurant size isn’t up to coping with the normal demands and quality of every other PTI we’ve stayed in.

If I was to mark the hotel on it's own would give it an Very Good, but the pub next door drags it down to an Average.

A lovely Premier Inn hotel. Perfectly situated for visiting Lowestoft, Great Yarmouth and surrounding areas. The hotel is well presented and the rooms nice and clean. Our room faced onto the road but there wasn't any traffic noise to keep us awake at night. All the hotel staff were very polite and friendly especially Glenn on reception who was very helpful. The attached Beefeater restaurant served excellent food both in the evening and the following morning for breakfast. Our waitress Lauren was very pleasant and attentive.

I would rate this hotel as a typical Premier Inn with a Beefeater Restaurant on site. The rooms were clean and quite large. The staff were very helpful and I would certainly return if I was in the area again.
It is ideal base if you are travelling through Norfolk or need a base for a trip to Yarmouth

Exceptionally clean, and great value for money. Staff were very helpful and location to Great Yarmouth was more than easy. If staying there again I would not use the on site restaurant as it is on the little bit expensive side. Look locally for better value for money. Apart from this I would highly rate the hotel.

given that this is a budget hotel, the rooms are clean, the bed comfortable and I don't get disturbed by noise, the only downside, as usual I couldn't get a table in the restaurant so had to eat out, but I stay in East Anglia 4 or 5 times a year, on business,and this is my hotel of choice.

I would rate this hotel as a typical Premier Inn with a Beefeater Restaurant on site. The rooms were clean and quite large.

The staff were very helpful and I would certainly return if I was in the area again. It is ideal if you are driving through Norfolk looking at National Trust properties etc.

The rooms on the upper level at the back are very quiet.

Room Tip: On the upper floor at the back

Spent two nights in a family room, large enough for us since we was out most of the time. Very clean and comfortable beds.
Staff was very helpful and polite. No issue when asking for them to ring for a taxi.
Very happy stay
