Travellers' Choice
Andover House is an intimate, endearing hotel, located on a beautiful tree lined avenue close to the seafront and business hub of Great Yarmouth. Inspired for those over 13, The Copper Kitchen restaurant and bar serves stunning food, at fair prices, with service befitting the setting. An intimate, contemporary atmosphere with a welcoming, homely charm. The en-suite hotel rooms have everything needed when away from home; amazingly comfortable beds, free breakfast, big HD televisions showing Sky Sports and homemade biscuits to nibble on with a cup of tea. The shower rooms are small but we hope we make up for it in other ways! Check-in from 3pm and check-out by 11am.

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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I stayed here on Friday 3/2/24 and would highly recommend this hotel. I came down for a funeral and travelled overnight. I arrived at the hotel just before lunchtime, and they let me check in early so I could freshen up before the funeral. I had a great sleep in a very comfy bed, and the breakfast on Saturday morning was great. It set me up for the 9 hr drive home. Also, nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Can't praise them enough.

We have visited this lovely gem of a hotel before and were not disappointed this time, with either the fantastic customer service and quality of our room .We stayed in room 23 this time, which has a claw foot tub in the bathroom and a double king bed, amazing! We decided to eat in and the waitress/ bar staff Gemma(?) was so helpful in speaking to the chef and making us a special vegan rigatoni. Breakfast was also delicious, our waiter was delightful, very friendly and a very handsome chap to boot! We will be back! Love this place!

This is a great hotel with great staff. We stayed one night on a Friday and were very impressed with the service, room, food and the general relaxing feel of the place. The scotch egg was the best I've ever had! I would highly recommend this hotel.

Best ever Scotch Egg? We will bag that! Definitely going to offer up a 'double' scotch egg offer on the new menu this October. Huge thanks for the kind words - the pleasure was all ours.

Family run with a great supporting cast, this is a hotel that actually cares. Babs in the bar had time for a conversation - and interesting views to boot. Sandra in the kitchen made the best 'soft scrambled eggs' I have ever tasted - including those I've cooked myself and those I've enjoyed in some of the 115 countries I've visited. The rooms are small, but very clean and well equipped - kettle, usb ports, decent TV... And a reasonable menu.

Absolute pleasure to read, Michael. Thank you so much for those kind words and I will be certainly using your walk from Great Yarmouth to Caister for other guests wishing to do the same. You booked a single room which is the smallest in the building. If guests wish to have more space the majority of our rooms are much larger. Just putting that in there in case there was an assumption that all rooms are small! Thank you again and lovely to meet you all.

What a lovely hotel. We have tried many different hotels in Yarmouth over the years but this is the best by far. Lovely warm welcome on arrival, which continued through out our stay as all of the staff are very friendly and helpful. Our rooms were very clean and nicely decorated, as were the lounge, restaurant and breakfast rooms. We had a lovely dinner in the restaurant and the breakfast was excellent. It was a 10/10 experience for us and would highly recommend this place.

All the staff without exception are wonderful & welcoming . We ate in the restaurant & had an excellent meal. Home cooked/ prepared & nothing was to much trouble . The breakfast was amongst the top ten ever . Proper thick back bacon , fresh scrambled eggs to order and two super sausages…. The toast was made with real bread & not flabby everlasting sliced. Juice and great coffee. A good quiet spot , just a stones throw from the beach.

Stayed here for 3 nights and well what can I say what a fantastic place to stay, it’s a 3* but we said it’s more of a 4*. Clean and tidy, we had a room With separate living area, we had a little kitchen area with a. Fridge, fan also in the room which we made use of, the only little niggle I would say is that the bathroom was on the small side but we managed. very helpful staff and easy check in and check out, we had a meal on the first night we stayed here and was lovely food and great service. Would highly recommend this little hotel.

Definitely recommend Andover house if you are looking for somewhere to stay in Great Yarmouth. As we was travelling down late Friday evening we informed them we would not arrive to midnight and that was no problem we was just advised to call the number on the door for someone to let us know but on arrival that was not needed we was greeted at the door and she was waiting for us and even taken my case in for me. Such a lovely friendly lady she made us feel welcome and showed us where everything was before passing us our keys to our room. Very clean push and tidy hotel. We stayed in small double room. Bed was comfortable. Room included an iron and ironing board and a hairdryer. Room was warm and didn’t hear any noise from our room. Breakfast was included in the price I’d booked direct and the breakfast was amazing and very tasty and well presented. Quick service and well mannered staff. we needed more milk for the room so I went and asked and it was no bother to them. Nothing was ever to much trouble. So helpful and I couldn’t recommend it enough. Also had a lovely drink in the bar Saturday evening it was lovely and quiet. 100% recommend! thank you Andover house x
