Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Marlborough Guest House is not just a guest house it’s. A home away from home as soon as you walk in you feel welcomed by Malcom and he’s family nothing is to much hassle if anything is needed. The rooms are clean tidy with fresh bedding. Tea/coffee facilities in all the rooms. With complementary biscuits honestly this place is a gem in Great Yarmouth and only a few mins walk to town and the beach and arcades you really couldn’t be in a better place. The breakfast is cooked fresh to order daily and taste delicious not greasy I would recommend this place to everybody who is visiting Great Yarmouth. With friends or family. You won’t be disappointed

Came here with my young lad for a few days. Malcom greeted us and explained about the parking. Then we went in and he explained why there was building materials in the hallway and dining area. We were then showed to our bedroom and he left us too it. Malcom is very hands on with his business. Extremely friendly and very sociable. We went down for breakfast following day, and wow what a breakfast. Top ingredients, perfectly cooked, and it was big. Following 2 mornings exactly the same , but one morning I was offered white pudding . I bit his hand off as it’s been a while since I’ve had it. A first time for himself as well, and I think he was quite impressed himself. The room itself was compact, but functional. Overall a lovely stay and I wish Malcom the very best… COYI

Booked this guest house as I’ve used it before, mind you it was a few years ago. As it is that good, it gets booked very quickly. Cooked breakfast was amazing 🤩, the big sausages are to die for. Can’t wait for more of those. There are also a lot of other breakfast items eg several cereals to choose from, yogurts plus good selection of jams and marmalade. You won’t go away hungry, well if you do that’s your own fault😂. It’s a very short walk to Seafront. Malc couldn’t be more helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Had a lovely couple of days. Bonus as weather was lovely to. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Sue and I have just returned from a long weekend at The Marlborough Guest House. The B and B was very clean and the breakfast was cooked to perfection every day with good quality produce. Malcolm went beyond expectations providing ice for our many G and Ts and even bringing a TV into the breakfast room so the residents could watch the Euro Finals (with snacks provided) on Sunday evening. Highly recommended. Thank you Malcolm. 😀

Booked for my parents to stay for long weekend whilst visiting the area. Have used multiple times and never been disappointed. The B&B is exceptionally clean and the rooms decorated to a high standard. Breakfast is included daily within the room rate and always comes highly recommended. The owners Mark and John are fantastic and nothing is too much trouble while staying here.

We stayed at the guest house for one night and had a great time. Mark and John are fantastic hosts and nothing was too much trouble. The room was beautiful and very clean with everything you could want. In a great location just minutes from the beach and the town. Bed lovely and comfortable and had a great nights sleep followed by a delicious breakfast. Will definitely return. Thank you for a great stay.

We visited the Marlborough for the second time last week. Another great stay. Mark and John are excellent and friendly hosts who welcomed us back to their home like old friends. The family room is large and very clean with everything you need. The breakfast choice is excellent and varied. Nothing is too much trouble during your stay and the guest house is well situated for the beach and attractions. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Great Yarmouth and am looking forward to staying again next year.

We stayed here last year had a great experience so rebooked for this year. Again John and Mark excelled with their hosting and made our stay and especially Joseph’s a very pleasant one. The Guest House is very clean and presentable, the Breakfasts are delicious, freshly cooked with quality products. The location is conveniently located close to the seafront, restaurant and amusements. Our advise, booking early is essential as this B&B is very popular. Many Thanks John & Mark we look forward to meeting with you both soon.
