“amazing place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

First impression was very welcoming, clean and tidy exterior and warmly welcomed by the staff. We were extremely happy with our room, very clean (twin with sea view) plenty of room inside and beds comfy as the ones at home.
right from the start of the holiday we were made to feel really welcome and almost as though we were regular customers returning.
The bar is well equipped and clean and tidy, we asked about food and even though it was well after the serving time, nothing was to much trouble and we were well looked after.
We stayed for 2 nights, both times eating in the restaurant, the food was amazing and beautifully presented and the staff made it clear that nothing is too much trouble.
In fact it was so nice - we then booked our next stay the day after we arrived home.
Cant recommend it highly enough.

Can not give this guys more praise if I tried, a friendly, welcoming, family run hotel. From the greeting till you check out, super breakfast and rooms are excellent. Staff always at hand for any issue, provide a lovely a la carte menu for the evening if needed. Have now stayed there on 3 or 4 occasions due to work and will if they have vacancies stay there again and again.
A hard working team with a smile and, thanks for finding my phone appreciated.

We stayed at the Furzedown whilst on a buying trip for a holiday home. the whole experience was brilliant, from the second we arrived to when we left; the staff were very friendly, attentive and informative about the area. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and well furnished, we slept well and ate well. We were made to feel wellcome and nothing was any trouble, even to the extent that the chef made my wife some plain crisps because they had sold out.

I wouldn't hesitate to stay again and toroughly recommend the hotel.

Room Tip: The sea view rooms are worth the extra.

Thanks for another pleasant stay at this lovely hotel. Upon arrival we were offered the choice of two rooms. We didn't see the second room as we were happy with the first choice (room 5) which was on the first floor with a lovely sea view.
Breakfast was excellent and served by friendly staff, in fact all the staff are friendly. Very comfortable and relaxed hotel, would definitely recommend and will be returning. We could even access wifi from our room
Well done keep it up.

We've been going to the Furzedown for a few years now and it's the best hotel we've every stayed in in Yarmouth. Everyone is so friendly and helpful which makes you feel comfortable straightaway. Our room had a seaview and was very comfortable and very clean. Can't fault anything at the Furzedown. My sister came with us this year and thoroughly enjoyed herself. She had a lovely room with a seaview too. The food is excellent, especially the toad in the hole!! There's plenty to eat and all cooked perfectly. I recommend the Furzedown to everyone - go and enjoy yourselves - you will!
