“Best B and B in Beccles by a mile”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

I have stayed at Catherine House as a business traveller for approx 20 nights. The rooms are immaculate, well furnished and exceptionally comfortable. Breakfasts are amazing, and with local produce and a huge variety of choice.

I have found service to be excellent; friendly, flexible and helpful at all times. To top it all, there is exceptionally good value for money.

I have stayed at two other B and Bs in Beccles at a higher price and neither Catherine House.

A group of us stayed for 1 night on a cycling trip. 3 of our party had rooms in the main house whilst I and one other had the Lodge in the garden. The Lodge was very well finished with a double bedroom and a double sofa bed in the lounge/kitchen. Both rooms had access to a shared wetroom bathroom. Fixtures and fittings are of a very high quality throughout with a modern fresh feel. We were staying as bed and breakfast guests, but the kitchen was very well specified for self catering visitors with washer/dryer, dishwasher, oven, hob, microwave, toaster and kettle. Both rooms had televisions and air conditioning.
We were able to store our bicycles in a secure undercover location.
Breakfast had to be ordered the night before and was very high quality, made with local ingredients.
The hotel is located on the edge of Beccles, a short walk from the centre.

Myself and a friend stayed for one night to attend a wedding nearby. Arrived to a warm reception by the lady owner. The whole place was immaculately clean, decor lovely and the twin room we booked had a double and single bed. It was such a pleasant surprise, especially as the room rates are a fantastic price. My friend and her partner had a room with a tub bath it in...gorgeous and perfect for a couple! There was a great choice to selection for breakfast, and you were able to specify a time you would like it for. There is also an extra surprise at breakfast as you are invited to enjoy fresh fruit, cereals and yogurts before your cooked breakfast arrives. I would recommend this b&b and would stay there again myself .

Catherine House is a well situated B & B only ten minutes walk from the town centre, the last 50yds back being up a very slight gradient but not a problem even for an older person. Plenty of off road parking should you require it.

Being met on the doorstep, before ringing the bell, with a cheery greeting by our host Karen set our stay off to a perfect start. Although our choice, it was a bit of a climb up a narrow staircase to our room but the room and the view from it made it well worth it. A large comfortable room with a similar bed. The en-suite was compact but more than adequate. Good sized soft fluffy towels that were changed daily. Tea and coffee making facilities included.

A breakfast pre-order form was available each evening for the mornings breakfast. Breakfast consisted of plenty of choice from cereal, fruit juice, fresh fruit and full english and toast downward, enough for anybody, but always followed with a "would you like anything more?" Daily newspapers were available at breakfast every morning.

We found Karen and her two lady assistants very helpful and extremely friendly and can not wait for the excuse for a return visit.

Room Tip: Having been shown all rooms they are all excellent, nothing to choose between them although I unders...

An immaculate and homely B&B. We've had a great stay and felt thoroughly looked after by the hosts.
The room is spotless and has everything you could wish for to make for a comfortable stay.
Lovely breakfast with local produce.

Catherine House is situated in a very quiet part of Beccles and finding it is very straight forward. Once you arrive you are made to feel very welcome and we was extremely impressed with the look and feel of the rooms as everything was immaculate and very tasteful. Karen was very accomodating with our requirements as we asked to come early to leave our luggage due to a wedding we was attending nearby. The breakfast menu was excellent and was served promptly and very well cooked. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom facilities were also excellent.
We would certainly go back and hope too soon.

Our two night Stay at Catherine House can only be described as a home from home.
The proprietors, Karen & William along with Ann made my wife and I feel most welcome. Their attention to detail is what you would find at a boutique hotel.
We stayed in room 2 with its luxurious roll top bath. Couple this with the lovely breakfast and I think you'd be hard pushed to find this standard in the best hotels!
We will be back next year!!
