Reviewed 13 July 2014

There is little to add to the existing excellent reviews since my wife and I on our first visit found all the praise fully justified.The basic b&b requirements are first class,as is the standard of decoration and furnishings.
Other reviewers have praised Jean's exceptional service,and we received this too.There were helpful and informative e-mails before our arrival,one offering us early use of our room.It was our anniversary,and there was a card and flowers to greet us.Without our knowledge the restaurant(The Olive Garden) was told of the occasion and we therefore received a totally unexpected celebratory fanfare,firework candle,gateau, ice cream and liqueurs after our dinner.

Now at home we have just enjoyed Jean's strawberry jam at breakfast,a happy memory of a pleasant stay.

Thank you for your most excellent review. It was an honour that you chose to stay with us to celebrate your anniversary and a pleasure to look after you both.
We are pleased that you appreciated our high levels of customer service. I am also pleased that you enjoyed my strawberry jam.
Thank you very much for your well thought out and highly complimentary review.
Kind Regards to you both

We had a lovely stay from sunday to friday morning and caught up with some old friends that have been staying here for years. Once people discover the tranquil, peaceful Lodge they never stay anywhere else when on the Norfolk coast. We had our usual hug from Jean and a lovely chat with the ever busy Eddie, and of course made a fuss of George who remembers people from one year to the next that`s one amazing dog.
This year we discovered a beautiful town called Beccles where Jean had visited an antique shop and remembered how quaint it was. This year oh my word the cakes were to die for. Help yourselves said Jean. We took cakes with us everyday and a right tasty treat they were. When people ask where are we going for a break we always say to see friends in Norfolk, thats what the lodge means to so many people. Not just a fantastic retreat. Not just brill food with service to match. You are treated one and all as friends and if you havn`t visited yet then you are missing out. Have a fun, safe, holiday and join so many others who have discovered the Gem which is The White Lodge.

Room Tip: All the rooms are to the same standard rooms overlooking the garden will of course be the quietest...

Hello my old friends :-)
How lovely that so many people now have become such good friends with us over the last few years and it's always nice when you remember each other year after year and can chat and catch up on news over breakfast.
I love baking the cakes for everyone and as we always say "take some with you", my baking has now travelled far and wide!! Thank you for saying that our food is "brill"! As you know, we cook all food freshly every morning and always use only good quality ingredients.
Our Guests constantly tell us that they don't need to eat again all day as they are well satisfied from the breakfast. We don't place any limits on the amount you can order so no need for anyone to go hungry!
I like the way you refer to The White Lodge as a "fantastic retreat". I think because our sea front location is so nice and we are away from any busy roads with no traffic passing directly outside our door, it makes for a lovely relaxing stay. We look forward to seeing you both again very soon and yes George is amazing. He clearly remembers regular Guests and considering how many of those we now have, that is a truly remarkable memory for a dog to possess !! I know we will be seeing you again soon but in the meantime, a huge thank you for the superb review.
Love Jean, Eddie and George x

My return visit to the White Lodge was just as good as my first if not better. It was good to see Eddie and Jean again after such a long time. But more important it was great to see George again, [Sorry guys lol}. Room was great and bed very comfy. As always the breakfast was good, hot and tasty.

A message to all you bikers out there, you will get a warm welcome and the parking for bikes is very secure behind a locked gate. Could not ask for better.

Thank you very much for your prompt and excellent review. It was great to see you returning to us for a 3rd visit. I am pleased you found the breakfast to be good and hot. Nothing worse than cold food or cold plates!
We hope to see you again soon. George was obviously pleased to see you again!!
Many thanks. Take care on the 2 wheels :-)

We stayed here for two nights four years ago and were definitely not disappointed.
Hotel spotlessly clean, Breakfast was outstanding on both days and the owners Jean and Eddie really cant do enough for you. It's almost like staying at a friends house they make you so welcome.
We wouldn't stay anywhere else now!
Thanks for a great break-we really enjoyed it and hope to be back sooner than last time!

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are always a bonus in our opinion.

I couldn't believe it was 4 years since your last visit! Time goes so quickly but brilliant that you eventually made it back again!! I am pleased it's like staying with family for you as that's what we try to achieve with our Guests. Sort of home from home ! We now feel as if we've gained a family of hundreds in the last few years !!!
Yes the sea view rooms are nice to have but need to be booked early as they are so popular. Hope to see you much sooner than 4 years next time. Look after yourselves and thank you very much for the superb review.
Love Jean x ;-)

To the two lovely, welcoming and warm owners of the white lodge,
I have told all I know of the fantastic service I experienced whilst staying with you. Could not ask for anything more from a spontaneous trip to Great Yarmouth alone. Your hotel is amazing and simply put quaint and full of warmth.
Breakfast hit the spot on both visits, even more so the second time ;)
And for me sleeping somewhere new doesnt happen, but I slept like a baby on both trips.
If your reading this, future customers of the white lodge, book it! Seriously nowhere could top this couple!
Bikers should also stay here with secure parking and a knowledgable owner makes for great debates!
Thank you for everything and will stay again soon!!

And we couldn't ask for a better guest. When you check out, the room looks as if no one's even been in it, it's so clean and tidy (but don't worry future Guests, it still gets a bed change and a good clean !!!!). It's been lovely having you to stay especially as you came back so quickly after your first visit. Thank you so much for recommending us to any potential new Guests. Come and see us again soon. Don't forget, if you need anyone to pick your bike up, just give Eddie a call lol !! and yes, he is always up for a debate as long as he is always right!!!!!
See you soon. Take care. Love Jean xx

We had an amazing weekend in Great Yarmouth, all made so much better by the beautiful White Lodge. Jean and Eddie are the most welcoming, hospitable couple. Nothing is too much bother. Once I asked if there was anything that could be organised for my boyfriends birthday, Jean surpassed my expectations with table decorations and a cake!!!! The rooms are coordinated beautifully, and exceptionally clean. We will definitely be returning. Thank you again for a wonderful weekend.

Room Tip: All rooms are en suite

It was an absolute pleasure having you both to stay. I know how much you appreciated the Birthday treats and the look on your boyfriend's face was a picture. Your appreciation of our efforts makes everything we do here so worthwhile. If we can bring a smile to someone's face, then that makes our day too.
I hope you will both come and stay again. Maybe on your birthday next time!! :-)
Thank you also for sending me the lovely email when you got home :-)
