“A fantastic place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

If you want a good place to stay in Felixstowe then go no further than the Norfolk Guest House. Dee and Rob go out of their way to be great hosts. The room are spotless and very comfy. The breakfast is very good too. I stay here whenever I need to stay in Felixstowe. I highly recommend this guest house.

We took my parents for a weeks holiday at the Norfolk Guest House, we stopped one night. We found Rob and Dee very welcoming, the rooms were so clean and fresh, also the bed was so comfy, plenty of hangers. Breakfast was a bonus plenty of choice. I would definitely recommend the Norfolk Guest House :).

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at the Norfolk Guest House. Rob and Dee were most welcoming - their hospitality was outstanding. Our room was lovely, ensuite, very comfortable with lovely accessories. The breakfasts were piping hot and very tasty. We would not hesitate to stay with them again..

Would highly recommend.

Room Tip: The balcony rooms are a must.

We were looking for a b&b in Felixstowe and decided to stay here because of the glowing reviews. We were not in the least bit disappointed every review was true and more. Rob and Dee made us feel at home straight away. The room was lovely, exceptionally clean and well appointed with ensuite ,television and wifi, with additional personal touches, Dee's famous animal towels, sweets, chocolates, toilettries, such a treat. The breakfast; made using local produce was tasty and delicious. It is a quiet oasis in a busy area, just yards from the sea. Dee and Rob were fantastically caring and professional hosts.We would certainly highly recommend this diamond of a b&b to everyone.We will definitely book again when visiting the area.

Thank you very much for your lovely review. To have your beautiful hand crafted 'thank you' card arrive with the envelope especially created by Charlotte, your grand daughter, was the icing on the cake, cheering us up after our sad news.

We look forward to your next visit here and thank you once again for your kind words..

Thanks to other reviewers' comments I decided to move out of the "business" hotels in the Ipswich area and stay here instead. That was nearly a year ago. Since then, every time I've stayed, nearly every week, it has been consistently excellent. Rob and Dee are perfect hosts; the cooked breakfast is, in my opinion, unmissable; and the rooms have everything I need and are comfortable.
For other business travellers looking at staying here: there's no desk but ask for a laptop table & problem solved. Free WiFi and an easy, pleasant walk to the eateries of Felixstowe make for the final touches of a high quality home from home experience.

Absolutely faultless! The room was lovely. All the personal touches make it extra special. From lovely towel displays ( even the end of the loo roll was made into a fan) to ferrera rocher, sweets, sewing kit, several toiletries, fresh flowers, and of course the teas and coffee, bottled water and bikkies. Bed very comfy, plenty of hangers in wardrobe and drawers in room. The breakfast was one of the best we've had and the owners really friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again when visiting Felixstowe.
