Reviewed 22 October 2013

I stayed at the Coventry hotel for five days,and I must say a big thank you to John and Sue,and all the staff,for making our stay such an enjoyable experience.The room we had was marvellous,it was clean and airy,and the view from the front window was beautiful, looking out over the beach.The full English breakfast every morning was terrific every time.I enjoyed our stay so much that I,ve booked a long week-end stay in Novenber ,and again when I have to come back up to Lowestoft in January.

Room Tip: The rooms at the front of the hotel have a fantastic view of the beach.

Having stayed at this guest house on many previous occasions we had no hesitation in booking for this visit. We were surprised to hear that John and Sue were the new owners and had only been up and running for eight weeks. We had always received a warm welcome from the previous owners and were relieved to find that John and Sue had continued in the same vein and we were very satisfied with the cleanliness, comfort and very tasty breakfast. Would certainly recommend this guest house and use it again in the future.

Room Tip: Rooms 3 and 6 have a splendid sea view but others rooms (we were in 4 this trip) are as comfortable...

After booking in advance I arrived at the Coventry Guest House and was immediately made to feel welcome by John the owner, as it was late I didn't meet the rest of the family until the next day and an absolute delight it was too. I stayed for 7 weeks and for the full time they would bend over backwards if necessary to help me out with anything, by the end of my stay both Sue (John's wife) and Clare (John's daughter) were both teary eyed to see me go. I will definitely go back with my wife to not only a fantastically run family guest house but to see my new friends too.

Thank you Sue, John, Clare and Liam for a lovely time.

Room Tip: Rooms 3 & 6 are the best you'll find, spacious family rooms with beautiful sea views

I took my family for a long weekend to lowestoft about 4 weeks ago. I would just like to say a big thank you to the owners,who gave me and my family a very warm welcome.
We are a family of 4 with 2 young kids. We found that the Coventry Guest house was very clean and family friendly, also the breakfast was first class.

I would recommend this guest house to any young family, as the kids had such a great time.
The beach was a blue flaged beach, Also there were a lots places to visit near to the guest house.

I had booked to stay here a year in advance and booked a seaview room. The night before i was due to arrive i got a phone call to say they were going to move me to a back bedroom because someone else wanted the room and they were going to pay more. It seems the higher offer comes first but not the loyal customers who come every year, also put the price up by £30 a night at the last minute. I would never reccomend this guest house again.

We can only apologise for your comments about the Coventry Guest house it is not our intention to offend people in any way. In our defence the room your wanted was booked out on a long term basis and would have unfair to have moved them. We did offer you another room within Coventry and we also found alternative accommodation with another guest house near by, however you chose to refuse both.
Once again we do apologise for inconvenience caused.
