LIar .no smell of smoking in the hotel.Liar breakfasts were superb.We only had a small meal while out during the day because we were full up.In fact i commented to my wife that the sausages were no cheapos.
The beds were clean and comfortable.
It really is about time that TRIPADVISOR verified that these reviewers were genuine.

Room Tip: take no notice of some of the bad reviews some of them are written by nearby hotelliers.

We have just returned from this Bed & Breakfast & after reading the reviews was abit worried Especially with the name Fawlty Towers I thought thered be Zany people about immatating the characters but there was none of that the only thing that resembled the programme was the Bedrooms they were all named after the characters & things to do with the programme.We had a biggish room with en suite,Tv,microwave,mini fridge,tea coffee etc there was a wardrobe dressing table as well & i noticed a safe in the wardrobe as well.We slept well both nights & the bed was very comfy.Breakfast was the BEST ive ever had in a B & B there was a varity of cereals to choose from yoghurts fresh fruit we also had orange juice on the tables the fried Breakfast consisted of Egg,Bacon,Sausage,Black pudding,Fried Bread,Hash Brown & fresh mushrooms not from a tin like some places serve Grilled Tomato & Beans.We also had A Basket with Toast & selection of Jams.We also had Tea or coffee which came in pots so had several cups from it not just one like some places offer.It was a stones throw from the Town & the Britannia Pier is aprrox 5 mins walk away.Our sat Nav took us to Albion Road but the B&B is just round the corner from Albion road.There is Limited Car parking near the hotel & you have to park in parking bays in the streets nearby & the proprioter gives you a parking permit every day as they are only valid for 24hrs.We would go back again if you only pay for a cheap price for a place dont expect The Hilton or The Ritz cos you wont get that standard but if you need a good cheap B&B with Good Breakfast then this is the place yes it looks abit run down from the outside but when i get good service & good Food then i'm not bothered about how something looks.

Reviewed 7 April 2014

I think the photos and reviews are well and truly out of date, the decor was not only tired but dirty, ceilings falling down, rooms smelt of smoke, wallpaper peeling, floors sticky with dirt, showers mouldy, the smell of stale fried food everywhere, all surfaces greasy including highchair, breakfast obviously the cheapest bacon and sausages. Staff looked scruffy, no welcome, no thank you for visiting in fact no interaction with my family at all. Family room had no room for a cot so had to sleep in bed with parents.
The rear entrance was through a dirty, smelly yard and smelly kitchen, no assistance offered with cases. Overall, whether paying 50p or £50, the least we expect is cleanliness. Not going back, ever.

Room Tip: Don,t bother, save your money and go somewhere else.

No ceilings in here they are all suspended ceilings. All rooms display a no smoking sign but we cannot sleep with every guest to make sure that these are upheld. There is no wallpaper peeling in here have looked everywhere but cannot find. All carpets have been replaced with Wilton carpets this year which has cost thousands. Our sausages are butcher sausages which we have brought over from Halesworth about 30 miles away and are complimented on them extensively many guests asking to buy them. The bacon is smoked back bacon certainly not the cheapest. We are a cheap hotel but give value for money. We are very friendly and normally interact with guests but only if guests are open and friendly. Sometimes however we do have problems and although we have to carry on with the business can be difficult I've had cervical cancer this year and although am doing well at mo has been hard with radio and chemo therapy and all this on top of my husband's chronic heart failure we try not to let our health problems interfere but find it hard to be cheerful all the time. We could have supplied a cot is asked not all families have small children. The rear entrance is through a yard but you do have the option to take the slightly longer route and walk around but not through the kitchen no guests are permitted in the kitchen for health and safety reasons. Due to above health problems we have been unable to help with cases. But if assistance was required could have got boys to help once home from college.
