We just had our 4th stay with Rob and Dee at the Norfolk, and it feels like coming home. They are both so friendly, and make our stay so special. Dee even remembered the places we visited on our last trip! The breakfast is delicious. The rooms are super clean, and they have everything you could need. Highly recommend!!!

We arrived at the guest house to be introduced to the owners, who gave us keys, and showed the room. There on the bed were the towels, twisted into the shape of swans - so cute. The tiny en-suite was well laid out, and perfectly adequate for a few days stay. The bed is comfy, although I'm not a huge... More

We returned this year to the Norfolk Guest House, for a short break and found the same very warm welcome, excellent food, clean bright decor, and comfort which had so impressed us on our previous visits and it is obvious that Rob and Dee continue to put a great deal of time and effort into the personal touches which do...

We stayed just one night at this lovely B&B and would most definitely do so again. We were greeted on arrival and shown up to our room which although not huge, was beautifully decorated and immaculately clean. Lots of little touches that will definitely please the ladies, towels made into swans, chocolates on the bed, tea and coffee making facilities... More

We booked this B&B after finding the Castle Guest House had closed and reading up on TripAdvisor as usual. On arrival we parked right outside. The street is quite narrow but allows parking on both sides with room for a Transit van to pass if necessary. We were greeted warmly by our host and hostess, shown the breakfast room and... More

Thank you for making our stay so comfortable. The rooms were spotlessly clean with the added daily novelty of towel animals. The breakfasts were freshly cooked and delicious - they set us up for the day . There was ample free parking and we were within view of the sea. We felt very welcome .
