We had a lovely stay at sandcastles, Joanne very welcoming and great with our baby the travel cot was all set up upon arrival and she had put in some little toys for our little girl to play with (which she loved). The rooms were spotlessly clean as was the rest of the guesthouse. Breakfast a was lovely good choice...

We stayed for 3 nights at Easter, it was our 5th time of staying there and it never disappoints! Jo is fantastic host and is always available if you need any help with anything. We have already booked up for next year!

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?!

We stayed for one night in October, in the small double room - which is small, but has everything you need, lovely and clean with comfortable bed and decent shower and plenty of hot water. Breakfast was first class, especially the sausages, with such a warm welcome and friendly chatter. Highly recommended, we will be back.

I like the name Sandcastles. It stirs up images of fun, families, and happiness on the beach. The main picture used of the front entrance, gives you the impression that it is a small building when in fact it is rather like Dr Who's Tardis on the inside! I am not a fan of guest houses to be honest as...
