The on-street parking is free, the rooms are very clean indeed and we found the bed very comfortable. The only addition that would improve the room would be a fan in warm weather, though it may be that these were available on request, but we did not ask. The bedding and couch were comfortable and the beds larger than your typical B&B doubles (a UK king, I think). We would definitely stay here again if in town.

One thing to be aware of is that if you have a room overlooking the courtyard, you will be able to hear the conversations of other guests quite clearly, so if you want to turn in quite early, you might want to ask for a room away from that. But the latest people were out there during our stay was 11:30pm, as it's not really an establishment for all-night party animals, and breakfast is not served outside but in the downstairs dining room.

So grateful for your review! Fans are available on request, maybe we need to let Guests know about this a little better as the warm weather looks like it is here to stay for a while :-)

Have been to The Andover several times now & always a lovely experience. The staff are very obliging on every level. We dined there last night & the food was excellent. All 3 courses. A very relaxing and enjoyable weekend. Would definitely go back. Even the humid heat did not really bother us as the place its self makes up for lots of things. A must for anyone who loves nice , tasty, ala carte food. Well done to all who work there especially the chef.

Room Tip: Room as a suite are lovey with 47 inch TV & sky.

Super lovely review! Thank you so much. Phil and I agree... there is nothing better than feeling welcome and looked after when you go out for dinner. These simple things make all the difference and glad you thought it worthy to write about!

We stayed two nights in this very good hotel, and were extremely pleased with our choice.We were able to park right outside and leave the car there for our stay. However, try not to park under the trees lining the street as they drop sticky stuff all over your paintwork!

One of the piers and the promenade are within 5 minutes walk at the end of the road, and the historic Masonic Hall where I attended large event at lunchtime on the Saturday is similarly close.

We had a tremendous welcome and were helped in with our luggage as my mobility is limited, especially when it come to carrying cases up stairs.We had upgraded to a suite with a sitting room with sofa and a 2nd TV, kitchen sink etc. The only distaff side was the tiny shower room and separate lavatory : when we commented on these two on checkout, we were told that the room was being altered to make these facilities larger. The proprietor seems very keen to ensure that everything is fine during your stay and his staff reflect this.

We only ate in one night, and that was satisfactory ( I liked mine, my wife didn't like hers). Certainly, walking up to the Britannia pier the next evening, I couldn't see anywhere else to eat of this standard - indeed Great Yarmouth was cheap and cheerful fish and chips, burgers etc, its a typical Kiss Me Quick Hat resort......

Room Tip: Our suite was good value

It sounds like you both enjoyed your stay which is great news for us. Great Yarmouth is not to everyone's taste, granted! However, we are a great base for touring the Norfolk Broads, surrounding villages and stately homes. Best wishes to you both.

I called up the hotel to let them know I wanted a romantic night to propose. They placed the most beautiful flowers, a bottle of sparkly on ice and covered the bed in rose petals. It was fantastic. The staff were very friendly. Best of all, I no longer have a girlfriend. I have a fiancé.

Another last minute decision to rebook at the Andover again and as normal it was a great stay it's our 4th or 5th stay now and love coming back.
Chris,iris,ash and all the staff always give that little extra nothing is to much bother and it's nice to catch up with the team and see the changes and hard work that is being done.
With a room upgrade as we'll we could not ask for more to relax and chill down for a perfect weekend.
With the restaurant having a updated menu and new head chef and team I would highly recommend you treat your self to a meal.
I also book my mum & dad in here as we'll and they love it and are always looked after and look forward to returning there.
See you again in September guys

Hi Steve & Emma. Your repeat stays with us is a massive boost of assurance and team confidence. We absolutely love Andover House but it would not mean anything unless our guests loved it too! Have a super summer x
