Recommeded by my parents this is a lovely guest house, with a great breakfast and wonderful decoration. Room was large for a family of 4 and the bathroom also a good size.
Will diff be back, thanks for a great stay.

I first stayed at Jennis Lodge in June this year. I hadn't booked, but they found me another place a mile or so away as they were booked and i stayed the next night. I needed some sea air and Norfolk has some fond memories of childhood. Gorleston is a lovely little place. It has a great beach and Jennis is only a stones throw from the beach. Paul and Vicci are great hosts and have a dog Duke who is a lovely ol dog. There is a comfortable lounge to watch Tv in or a Tv in the rooms with a DVD player and Internet connection in the rooms. The 2 bedrooms i stayed in both times were comfortable and clean. I had a lovely Veg Breakfast each morning with cereal and lots of tea and toast which sets one up for the rest of day. One could spend a day in Gorleston alone. Gt Yarmouth is only a few miles away as is Lowestoft There is a choice of an evening meal should you want one. Appaerently it is the ONLY official GH in Gorleston. There is no bar but there are plenty of pubs if you drink ( i don't though)
I found them to be a lovely couple (and the dog too) good at what they do...That is they are Peoples people. They enjoy what they do and it shows. The first holiday on my own and I felt secure in their comfortable little place. Would i go again? Sure as hell i will!! Will I go there ? YES....and a 4th and a fifth! Oh and it is good value- to -boot I give them 5*s ( i would give 6 but there isnt a 6* rating)!!!

We stayed as a family for a single night. Paul and Vicky are very helpful - genuine hosts. The accommodation is all ensuite rooms within period home. Feels like a home rather than chic hotel. Very clean, good breakfast. Good value for money. Gorleston beach was a surprise. Lovely golden sands handful of beach shops and good food at the Pier Hotel.

We stay at Jennis Lodge twice a year , with Jake our golden retriever, when we come to visit our family.It is a lovely place to stay, Vicci and Paul make everybody feel welcome and provide a relaxed atmosphere for their guests.The breakfast that Paul cooks is delicious especialy the scrambled and poached eggs! We definitely would recommend Jennis Lodge as a great place to stay.

The hosts were friendly, helpful and very accommodating. The rooms were clean, fresh and tidy. The food was well prepared with my picky requests accounted for with no problems. Jennis Lodge is a stone's throw away from a fantastic beach.
