#10 of 26 in Lowestoft
The Coventry Guest house is a Victorian Building set on the sea front with spectacular sea views, overlooking Lowestoft award winning Blue flag status beach and Claremont pier. Coventry House is placed in a very picturesque area with many restaurants, bars, pubs, and family entertainment. Norfolk Broads very close with all the amenities it has to offer.

I am not sure where to start, but what an amazing stay we had! Truly wonderful hosts, couldn’t be more friendly and accommodating when needed. Gorgeous decorated room, clean facilities and beautiful sea view! Location is great. Tasty breakfast to top it off. I highly recommend Coventry Guest House.

Fantastic place lovely and clean. The husband and wife team can't do enough for you. One of the best breakfasts i have had staying away. Right on the sea front with beautiful views of the coast line. Great access to the center of lowestoft.

A very relaxing stay where no request was to small. From changing a breakfast order to washing a big screen! The room met all my requirements for a few nights stay over several weeks. The Coventry Guest House made my stay feel like a second home. 5 stars for comfort and pleasant hosts. Regards AJ

This review is based on a single room overlooking the sea. I did not see any other rooms so cannot comment on doubles and family rooms. I was warmly welcomed despite not giving a time of arrival due to circumstances beyond my control. I was shown where the dining room was for breakfast and taken up 2 floors to my room. I was also shown where the shower room was and it was explained it was for my exclusive use (all rooms except singles have en-suites). The Room There was a single bed with two pillows and a duvet, all very clean and well presented. The room had a kettle with tea and coffee making facilities. There is a sink in-room so you don't have to walk to the shower room to fill the kettle. A good supply of tea, coffee, milk and sugar is supplied and I'm quite sure you could ask for more. There is a bedside table and a small wardrobe and a small TV on the wall. They also supply a clean dressing gown that you will need if you need to use the facilities in the night. The shower room Bigger than the bedroom! A shower, sink and toilet. Clean. Two fresh towels, hand soap and Dove branded body wash. The only slight issue is the shower which is not very powerful, it takes a while to get clean. I would recommend asking a plumber about a booster pump to improve things, of just move to an electric shower. Breakfast The dining room is in the basement. If you are less mobile, going from the dining room up to your bedroom on the second floor is three flights of stairs, it could be a challenge so think about that before you book. Plenty of choice for breakfast and it seems you can eat as much as you like. Nothing was too much trouble. There is cereal with milk (I saw Kelloggs Corn Flakes, Weetabix and other branded options, plus muesli. There's also yogurt and fresh fruit. They will cook a full English for you, adding or taking away anything you're not keen on. Toast can come with, or after (with jams) your full English. Orange juice and cafetière coffee or tea is on tap too. One morning I just fancied beans on toast, it wasn't too much trouble at all. Despite the other review saying the dining room was dismal, perhaps there was another dining room! It is fine, it's the basement, so light is a challenge, but seriously, it's not 'dismal'! Checkout Quick and easy. Cash or card is fine. Some facts: The Coventry never felt busy, I knew they were fully booked most of the time, but because of the 8-10 breakfast, the dining room wasn't ever full. The hosts are very nice and cheerful. Rooms are clean and well maintained. Fridges in some rooms, not singles though. The train station is a 15-20 minute walk from the guest house. The town is near the train station. 30 second walk to the beach and Claremont Pier. Sea view rooms are west facing. Nice for a cool evening in the room. However, they are also on Kirkley Cliff Road, which can be a noisy road. Conversely, rooms at the back will be east facing, so warmer in the evening. Parking could be a challenge. There is free parking outside the hotel, but finding a space could be an issue. There is a car park opposite within an easy walk to the hotel, but it's a pay car park (hence why there are few spaces for the hotels along the road). Don't park in the two spaces directly outside the hotel, they're for loading only. Conclusion Great for exactly what its there for; a roof over your head for a few days while you enjoy the beach and Lowestoft in general, and its many restaurants and take-aways. A good breakfast to set you up and lovely hosts who can't do enough, but are not in your face. Cannot give 5/5 as there are areas needing a little attention like the shower and possibly new mattresses could be considered, but absolutely I would stay there again.
