The White Lodge is a beautifully appointed 1930s built guest house run by Jean, Eddie and George (the dog). Upon entering Marine Drive we were struck by the unparalleled views of the quiet part of Great Yarmouth's beach; being situated about 3/4 mile from the town centre, The White Lodge was able to give us free street parking for the whole of our stay and quiet nights. The guesthouse is spotless and the panelling in reception, which also goes up the stairs, is stunning and adds to the general feeling of warmth and homeliness of the place.

Jean and Eddie are perfect hosts, attentive and knowledgeable. The room we stayed in had yet to be refurbished to the same standard as the rest of the house, but nevertheless was spacious and spotlessly clean. The extra touches were priceless and very appreciated: fresh flowers in our room; white towels folded on each bed; shampoos and shower gels; coffee/tea tray and activity books for our children.

The breakfast was astonishing. Every day a menu was left in our room for us to select our breakfast for the next morning. Jean and Eddie even added lovely stickers for our children to brighten up the menus for them. The choices included a full English (emphasis on the full!), which comprised of bacon, sausages, eggs, black pudding, tomato, beans and fried bread - any combination of these can be chosen via a simple tick list system. Alternatively, we could choose eggs on toast, beans on toast, smoked mackerel and poached eggs or the best kippers we've ever tasted. On the morning, when one of our daughters chose kippers, Jean was able to provide boneless ones especially for her. Fruit juices, cereals, hot drinks, yoghurts, fruit, as much bread as we wanted, brioche and waffles are left out in the dining room and are freely available.

Nothing is too much trouble, on a day when I was suffering from a bad back Jean and Eddie sent breakfast up to my room. Like the title of our review says, this is truly a home from home.

Sensational guest house run by a fantastic couple. Rooms are immaculate and lovingly
co-ordinated . The breakfasts are beautifully cooked and set you up for the rest of the day. Eddie and Jean will happily direct you anywhere, discuss real ale or great places to dine, while George loves everyone who gives him attention.
Had a superb two days here at the races. Lots of our fellow guests were racegoers too, so many hard luck stories were exchanged over breakfast! Wholeheartedly recommended........

From the warm welcome and george's friendly tail wagging when we first arrived to when we said our goodbyes, jean and eddie made us feel as though we were visiting friends and not just having a holiday. We've already been telling friends and family about our stay and hope to be able to come again.

Staying at the White Lodge was a delight and a pleasure. The Hotel and rooms were spotless, the breakfast's were top notch and Jean and Eddie are lovely people. Nothing was too much trouble, we fancied a night at the greyhound stadium (Recommended) and jean arranged it all for us, even the taxi. Very definately a place to stay if you want top service with the friendy home from home atmosphere that helped to make our holiday.

We spent two nights here and as the other reviews have stated the rooms are very fresh and clean with comfortable beds andthere is a really lovely garden we had access to. We were very impressed by how friendly and welcoming Jean, Eddie and Pat were.
The area was quiter than we expected in the evenings but we did have a lovely meal at the Olive Garden in town(Greek)
Our only two "grumbles" are that the bedrooms are very light in the mornings and some curtain blackout linings would help with this. Also the breakfast sausages were fairly standard in quality and there was no fresh bread despite being on the menu.....
Overall though we were made to feel welcome and Jean and Eddie cannot do enough to help you. We recommend this B&B .
