“What a find”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Mostly went to Great Yarmouth to go to the casino, didn't expect too much from the hotels as most of them seem to be the typical 'dodgy seaside' getaway. Very pleasantly surprised, booking was efficient and received personal emails finalising any details, rooms (8 of us so we booked 4 rooms) and food were outstanding. There is also a very nice bar so perfect for some early evening drinks! Going back this year for more.

I have stayed at a number of places in Great Yarmouth, but I will most def be staying at this one again.
We were greeted by the manger Kris, who very kindly helped us with our bags to our room. Although this is only a 3* hotel, the beds were very comfortable with nice size bedrooms. The hotel it's self is very well presented with lots of homely touches.
We in fact felt so relaxed that we decided to stay and have drinks in the bar then in town.

The service from Ashley and Isla was fantastic, so professional but ever so friendly too.

But above all of this, the most impressive thing about this hotel was the food. It was one of the best meals I've EVER had!
I was most impressed that Chef Simon came out to talk to me in person as I didn't like the sauce that came with the salmon on the menu and offered to make me something else I liked.
The food was fantastically presented and tasted amazing.

Next time we are in Great Yarmouth, we will be sure to book again.
Thank you guys for making our weekend so fantastic..

And Kris, Don't forget the email regarding the statue in the bar please.. :-)

Simon, Kris, Ashley and Iris are wonderful people and take great care of their guests. Thank you for mentioning each of them in your review, they certainly deserve a little mention :-) We really look forward to welcoming you back, maybe we can entice you to come and check out our new restaurant furniture, try out the big Sky tv's and the Spring menu!!! Email on it's way regarding where the statue came from! Best wishes to you both.

Clean and comfortable hotel. Conveniently located near the sea front. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Cooked breakfast options are varied, great quality food and very reasonably priced.
My husband and I have stayed in a number of local hotels in the past, and the Andover is definitely the best we have stayed in so far.

We booked this hotel for one night because the restaurant reviews were good. We were not disappointed. We were upgraded to a suite. I have never slept in such a comfortable bed. The evening meal was outstanding and the breakfast was excellent. The staff couldn't do enough to help. I have nothing bad to say about this hotel. I would highly recommend it.

Instantly became one of my top two restaurants in GY from this experience.

First ever visit and wasn't disappointed. Booked conveniently and with good over the phone advice, re: turning up a bit earlier. Was also good to see that the phoned back to confirm the booking on the day.

Hotel itself was very well presented inside - smart, elegant clean and classy. Not see anything better along these lines in local area. Service was excellent, very good waiter who advised on dishes, checked a few requests with the kitchen. Enjoyed a pleasant drink at the bar whilst mulling over menu choices.

Ate downstairs due to them being so busy but have to say all the staff did a very good job and were very charming. Food was great, good to see some more exciting and experienced dishes on the menu - between us we had the soup, mackerel and both had the pheasant for mains which was delicious. One tiny suggestion - side dishes are quite small - only really about one persons worth (could just do with a note on the menu so you can order accordingly). Good puddings as well.

Was also great to see the chef come out and do the rounds towards the end of the meal - good to see people taking genuine interest and pride in their work.

Would recommend all round for a classy place to eat or drink. Thanks. Will be back.

Always a friendly welcoming, modern environment but comfortable. Food is to a really high standard, the hotel should have a higher star rating. Kris (the manager) has great customer service with recommendations etc. Rooms very comfortable, bathrooms little small but modern and everything very clean. Great to see a hotel in the area that is contemporary but keeps features in rooms where possible too. Well restored property close to town and seafront but just a few streets away from it all to be quiet enough to get a good sleep. Have recommended to colleagues and would stay for days off too.

Room Tip: If you're a light sleeper have a room on second floor away from restaurant and bar like any hote...

When we renovated, nearly 6 years ago...we worked really hard to bring back as many original features that were hidden behind years of building work. Always delighted to hear guests mention how important this is to them. Such a beautiful building that needs a little mention here and there :-) Thank you for taking time to write about us.
