“"Comfortable"”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Just stayed at this hotel with Coach Travel 4 U and have had a lovely time. Great location & a cosy and comfortable clean hotel.
Staff lovely friendly and helpful and smartly dressed, entertainment great and bar prices amazing!
Breakfast superb, dinner was nice but a bit ordinary. Some of the rooms need updating they were all comfortable and clean some with lovely sea views but washbasins in bedrooms these days is not really acceptable. However we loved it and we would go back there again.

Room Tip: Some rooms are fully en suite some have washbasins in rooms and just toilets & showers en suite...

peter and rona, the owners are great people, they serve good food with a choise of menue
good clean rooms, 5/7 mins to centre of town, great for touring around
we made great friends, and if you deside to go to this hotel you will find a
welcome second to none. when you are out and about find the church the
food is great and its cheaper than the resturants in the centre off town

Room Tip: room no 7 was the room we had

Just spent a week at the A'Rona hotel: myself (age 25), my mum and my elderly grandparents. We all had a wonderful stay.

The hotel is in a great location, walking distance to all the attractions of Great Yarmouth but on a peaceful road and offers car parking if you drive down. The decor of the place is definitely summed up as chintzy but who really minds that? In all the rooms were cosy, clean and comfortable. Our room in particular was very roomy although my grandparents' was slightly smaller. For guests who struggle with stairs, there is a stairlift to all floors.

Meals were quite good. Nothing to get too excited about but they were perfectly adequate and there were always several choices for each dish. The waitressing staff are from Poland and although they struggle with their English, they try their best and are very friendly and obliging... even if it takes a couple of goes to communicate what you would like.

The best bit about this hotel is the wonderful staff. I have already mentioned the girls in the restaurant but special mention must go to the owner manager Peter. who really couldn't do enough for you. Not only is he always around for a friendly chat, he helped us with hiring a wheelchair for my grandad and when I was ill one night was on hand with peppermint drinks.

There is entertainment on in the bar three nights a week, singers who do quite a wide repertoire of songs. I particularly enjoyed getting up and doing a few numbers with them... thanks Paul and Clive for having me! (what a show off I am) Peter also organises a trip to see a show in Gorleston on Wednesday nights during the summer. It's a cabaret and worth a watch.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a good old fashioned break at the English seaside for very good value and a good time.

We stayed at the Hotel A'rona in Sept 2009 when we went to the Caister Soul Weekender. We managed to get a deal as part of the weekender, so were very happy with the cost of the stay.

Good points: Value for money, great location - just out of the madness of Yarmouth, but close enough to walk, onsite parking, decent breakfast, laid back owner.

Bad points: Rooms decorated by a granny on crack. Shower was weak, but worked. Remote on the TV didn't work, but TV did. Didn't take cards - only accept cheque or cash.
