“Fantasic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2010

Just had out second stay here! Even though we only live 30miles away its a nice weekend break.
We were first reccomended by friends to stay here, the owners were very welcoming, rooms are beautiful and some have a balcony. Breakfast: As we were the only people staying in the hotel (this was January) we did say that they didnt have to bother with breakfast but they refused and it was lovely!
Second tme both owners remembered us and gave us the same room, the first night my mum had awful heartburn but no worries! Bev (owner) was there with rennies! and the second night (we were very late in) we had a note in our door saying the heating had broken but they had placed a heater in the room for us and then, the next morning when we checked out they very nicely took £20 off our bill because of it, which we didnt expect.
We cant wait for our next stay (which hopefully wont be too long) and would highly reccomend this hotel to anybody.

Great Yarmouth: As we went in winter none of the 'tourist' attractions were open, however, the greyhound racing is a fantasic night out (saturday=family night) and we got some good wins back! lol.
Also the Grosvenor Casino which is just round the corner from the hotel, the food is absolutly amazing! maybe abit expensive (however if you go between January and February and maybe other winter times you can get 2for1 voutchers) but fantasic food.

We cannot praise Chequers highly enough.

The breakfasts were excellent, the rooms spacious and clean and the owners Alastair and Bev were friendly and helpful.

When our car developed a mechanical fault which required urgent attention Bev toook us to a nearby backstreet garage she knew. The proprietors Mr Harris and Mr Baldwin did a first class job fixing the fault without ripping us off.

We can thoroughly recommend Chequers and if you stay there you will not be disappointed.

Bev & Alistair are brilliant hosts. They really made us welcome, the rooms are clean and comfy, and I felt at ease at once. My son and his friend who both have learning dfficulties were also made welcome and settled in easily. They are saving up to go again next year. I throughly recommend this hotel you would go a long way to find such great hosts.
PS. Bev is a good cook too

Excellent location, quiet but very near the areas of interest in the town and very friendly and helpful proprietors - what more could you want?

A very caring Family who are easy to chat to, makes you feel very welcomed. Alistair and Bev were very helpful in our stay. Food was beautiful and the rooms very spaceous and clean. Bar was downstairs so after a full day we could relax and have a drink without worrying about going out. Have highly recommended the Chequers to our family and friends. Bev took us to the Norfolk broads this we enjoyed fully and cant thank Bev enough. She is very commited in making sure her guests are welcomed with open arms. Our stay was excellent and we wouldnt hesitate on staying with you again!!!!

We went to stay at The Chequers for a family weekend break after being recommended by some friends. We found it very easy to find, when we arrived we were welcomed by Al & Bev with open arms and made to feel very welcome. The rooms were clean and tidy and very comfortable with refreshments available. The food was very good especially the breakfast a good old full english. With easy access to the sea front it is ideally positioned. A fantastic stay and we've re booked for later on in the year.
