I stopped for two nights with my daughter and two of my grandchildren, we were made to feel so welcome. The rooms came with Freeview TV's and tea- and coffee-making facilities. There were also complementary soaps, shampoos and shower gels. Lovely people, smashing food and a two minute walk to the beach. What more do you need?

This is a fabulous family run guest house. Spotlessly clean and perfectly located just yards from the beach. The owners are lovely too, friendly and helpful. A cooked or continental breakfast is available each morning and packed lunches are available on request for a very reasonable price.

Working in Norwich fancied a seaside stay for a change. Great cosy room, friendly staff, good location, reasonable rate and delicious breakfast. Good hot shower. Will book again next time I'm in the area.

Really good location, just a few minutes walk from the pier and the seafront. We were very warmly welcomed by the owners. We stayed in the family room, which had enough room for the four of us and the kids loved staying in the bunk beds! Breakfast was fantastic.

Excellent value for money, street parking right outside, less than 5 min walk to sea front, warm welcome, clean and with everything you need plus a hearty breakfast. Why stay in a chain hotel when you can stay here?!
