Our room was lovely with plenty of space,overlooking the sea,with a spacious bathroom too. Every amenity you could possibly think of was in the room, which was beautifully decorated. Beds were very comfy... More

Very spacious room, comfy bed and lovely clean spacious shower room. B&B is very central and also near to sea front and promenade. Breakfast superb with real bacon and huge plateful. My other half raved about... More

The Britten, faces the sea, and is just a 10 minute walk into Lowestoft. I would recommended the Britten to any one Colin and Ann, are excellent hosts, and very knowledgeable about the area. The Britten is very homely, the breakfasts are second to none, with such a good selection to choose from . The rooms are lovely and clean,... More

In other countries, the Britten House would be a museum, but sad though that is, we greatly appreciated being able to stay here for a night. Luckily, the house no longer has the feel of the dental surgery it once was when Benjamin Britten's father practiced here. We stayed in the Elgar Suite in a large, if slightly over-furnished, room...

We stayed here for three nights. Made very welcome. Lovely room. Spotlessly clean. Very enjoyable breakfast served with humour. Very recommended. Also very good value. Right on the seafront but near the town centre.

Ann and Colin made us feel most welcome as on previous occasions. The 'Mozart Suite' is very large with a sea view, small dining table, comfy seats and a four poster bed. Breakfasts are always generous, well prepared and there is a good choice of breakfast options. We look forward to staying again.

Wife & I stayed for 2 nights in April 2016. Everything about this stay was beyond excellent; the accommodation, the superb breakfast & the very friendly owners. You will not find a better B&B in Lowestoft (or anywhere else for that matter)
