“More than you can expected”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

Just returned from Lowestoft and had a very enjoyable and awesome 3 nights stay at Somerton House. A lovely B&B by the sea front, gorgeous room and lovely breakfasts, especially Lowestoft kippers. The rooms were very clean and comfortable with nice little extras such as a small fridge with bottles of water inside, iron and iron board, etc. Have a short pleasant walk along the sea side. Our hosts Brian and Ursula did everything they could to make our stay a memorable one. All the information we received on arrival was invaluable.
Would recommend anyone to stay at the Somerton.

Room Tip: Room 4, 7 will have a great sea view...

Our family of four plus our dog had the pleasure of spending a night here on Bank Holiday Monday.
Brian and Ursula the owners really are the perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them !
The rooms were very clean and comfortable with nice little extras such as a small fridge with bottles of water inside.
Breakfast was lovely and filled us up for the day.
Plenty of parking available and a two minute walk to the sea front.
We look forward to staying here again in the near future.

Room Tip: We stayed on the ground floor as we had our dog with us. Most rooms are upstairs.

Just had 3 nights at Somerton House, had a lovely time. Luckily the weather was good. Had a lovely room with sea view with its own private bathroom, which was very stylish with a big shower cubicle. Brian and Ursula are the perfect hosts and made me feel very welcome from the very start, nothing is too much trouble, they are a lovely couple. The breakfasts were lovely, kept me going all day. The house is full of character and has been very tastefully done. Will definitely stay there again if in the area and would recommend it to anyone. Thank you Brian and Ursula.

Room Tip: I had room no 8 on 2nd floor on the front it was lovely with a sea view.

Looked for something overlooking the see and south pier for the morning sunrise that would be modestly priced. Somerton fitted the bill perfectly. Recently updated and a crackin' breakfast including Lowestoft kippers - best I've had in many a year. Overall a complete result and wouldn't hesitate to book again.

Stayed for one night with husband and 19 month old son for a break and were met with a warm friendly welcome by Ursula and Brian who made us feel completely at home. The room was perfect, clean and immaculately kept. The bed was so comfy and the bathroom was just as clean and immaculate. Both Ursula and Brian couldn't do enough to help us. The breakfast was gorgeous definitely the best full english we've had in a long time. Would recommend anyone to stay at the Somerton over anywhere else. 5 stars all round. Louise, Scott and Lucas.

I was given such a warm welcome, even a tour of the lovely house they are so proud off! The location was perfect & the room was so quaint, small yes but cosy & warm. (I was on my own & the rate was great!) I woke up to warm sunshine & a sea view... Perfect! Breakfast was top notch too! Keep up the great work & Good Luck! Anthony :-)

Thank you very much for your very kind review, we appreciate our single room are on the quant site, as we are a Grade 2 listed building we still retain a number of period feature i.e. fire place, but the well appointed luxurious private bathroom do make our single room a little special.
Thank you once again hope to see you again soon
