We were greeted by Dave who came out to the car park and helped with the cases. He explained that you ordered breakfast on a daily basis and so we chose ours as soon as we got there for the following morning. He didn't rush us to do this but it makes sense so he knows what he is catering for each morning. We weren't asked for payment as soon as we got there, in fact I asked him when he wanted payment. I paid as soon as we got there as it is over and done with. As it is cash or cheque only obviously you need to pay when you get there so they know that if you pay by cheque it has time to clear. Every B & B I have stayed at you pay as soon as you arrive. Dave carried my case to the room and showed us around so we knew how to work the shower and TV etc. The room was large enough and the chairs in the room to watch TV or read etc were comfortable. The bed was comfortable and yes it did have a single sheet on a double bed but the duvet was full size so no problem at all. The towels were changed after day 2 of a 4 night stay which was a nice surprise as I didn't expect them to be changed on a shortish stay. The shower unit was very powerful and although the bathroom was on the small size it was adequate, after all everyone wants en suite and these Victorian buildings have had to have them added to the original rooms so they are compact and you lose space in the bedrooms as a result. We stayed in room 6 which overlooks a park and it had a double and a single bed in it and was quite spacious the hotel was quiet and very central for everything. You can walk to anywhere in Great Yarmouth from here. We found Dave very helpful and he has a good sense of humor - we only saw his wife twice but she was pleasant each time we saw her. When we left Dave offered to get the cases and take them to the car for us. If we stay at Great Yarmouth again we would stay here again. It is a good B & B I think people who griped were expecting hotel facilities but this is an old fashioned B & B.
