The Sea Princess
Ranked #20 of 21 Hotels in Great Yarmouth
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We stayed, off season, for 1 night visiting family at this hotel. The choice of Hadleighs was purely down to economics as it was the cheapest on Laterooms. We thought whatever it's like, at £35 for 2 including breakfast we'd nothing to lose. What a pleasant surprise!!! There were plenty of off road parking. It's on the seafront and within walking distant of the shops + amusements. Warm welcome by the owner, who show us up to our room. The room was dated but clean throughout included the ensuite. Modern flat screen DVD TV with freeview. Bed was comfortable with crisp bedsheets. The hotel has a spacious well stock bar with live entertainment. Finally, breakfast in the morning was served by 2 very cheerful waitresses and nothing was too much to ask. Only thing we like to change, is to change their present brand of teabags. Much better than some of the more expensive hotels we've stayed in! Would return again and would recommend to anyone!!!

Room Tip: If you want a quiet night, ask for a room away from the bar as they've live entertainment on at...

We went on a Tinsel and Turkey Break coach trip. The Hotel was old but very clean, the first room we were given was not very big but we swapped with a fellow traveller and this room was lovely with a sea view. The hotel was warm and friendly and the waiter/barman Jorge was good, food was also good and the entertainment. Only dissapointment was no christmas crackers or music on the "Christmas Day" meal.

Room Tip: room 16 big and with a sea view, great twin.

this hotel was dirty, smelly and generally unwelcoming. i will never stay there again. there was no proper quilt on the bed just a thin sheet and it was freezing. me and my partner were put in room 8. infact the what we saw of the hotel put us off even trying the breakfast. i would sooner sleep on the beach than there again

Room Tip: do not stay in room 8

Took a group to the hotel in October.The management and all the staff looked after us very well.
The rooms were very clean and were made every dayThere was free wi -fi in the room and hotel.All the rooms were newly decorated.The food choice at evenings was very good and was catered very well.The choice at breakfast was big and plentiful.
We stated for four nights and every night there was live entertainment.
The beach was right opposite and the shops were a five minute walk.
All the staff were polite and very helpful.
Would definitely use the hotel again.
