This is the third time we have stayed here with our 4 children.
Vince and Aura are so friendly and welcoming and everything is spotless .
The location is fantastic as it is 2 minutes away from the beautiful sandy gorleston beach.
We will be booking again

Stayed for our second time at this very friendly hotel. The hosts look after you so well you feel
so welcome its a pleasure to visit. The rooms are spotless and the breakfast is wonderful. We hope to return again and would recommend it to anyone visiting Gorleston.

This has been our third stay at The Harbour Hotel Gorleston on Sea.

In an ideal position, just a short walk away from Gorlestons beautiful Sandy Beach,
Harbour Hotel is the perfect place to stay.

Within easy reach of many attractions, including Oulton Broad and Somerleyton House
The Harbour is a brilliant choice to make your base.

You can start your day with a hearty Breakfast (from a fantastic selection on offer)

When it comes to making you welcome, nobody does it better than Vince and Aurelia
You could not wish to meet two nicer people.

Over three stays nothing's been too much trouble, it really is that good.

I wish them all the best and look forward to staying with them again.

Highly Recommended.
