The Trotwood Guest House
Ranked #12 of 99 Great Yarmouth B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 June 2013

We often go to Great Yarmouth year after year for our holiday. As there is only 2 of us we like to stay in a guest house and please ourselves what we do. We found The Trotwood Guest house, this will be our 4th year of going. As soon as you enter you feel at home with Sharon, Ian and Bobby who make you so welcome that you feel it is home .from home. The rooms are tidy and clean, the food is superb and plentiful, don’t bother looking around for somewhere to stay just go to the Trotwood.

Room Tip: All rooms are good, but nice to have a sea view.

The Trotwood Guesthouse is the best place in Great Yarmouth to stay. We have stayed here many times since 2000, and since the new owners Sharon and Ian have taken it over it has only got better, and better due to the improvements they have made. It is a four star rated guest house and it deserves every one of it's stars, in fact If I were in charge of the rating system I would give it five stars. You always get a warm and friendly welcome and the rooms are always clean and tidy and well decorated. The breakfast is first class and they have 5 star rating for their hygiene. You have a choice of breakfasts all cooked to perfection. The rooms all have Freeview tv and also free WiFi. We would never stay anywhere else, we have stayed for two weeks this year and enjoyed every minute of it.

Room Tip: Rooms 5,6,9 and 10 have excellent sea views, and no extra is charged for these rooms as is the case...

The Londoners returned for a flying visit to our cousins who live near the Broads, so once again stayed at Trotwoods where we were greeted by Ian who was as welcoming and courteous as ever. As usual everything was perfect; the rooms were immaculate, we were spoilt for choice for breakfast which was cooked to perfection. Ian, Sharon, Bobbie and the domestic staff are a credit to their profession. You wouldn't get better service from a high class hotel in London! We cant wait to go back.
Thank you Ian and family for making us so welcome.

Decided to visit Great Yarmouth on the spur of the moment to visit friends, We had stayed at The Trotwood some 10 years ago so went straight there to see if they had a vacancy, from the moment Ian answered the door to the time we left the following morning everything was perfect
.
As retired hoteliers we know exactly how hard it is to run this type of accommodation, Ian and Sharon have got it exactly right, they really care about their customers and that is how it should be but a lot of hotels and accommodation providers these day's don't care they just want your money.

Ian and Sharon were not the owners when we stayed there before, but now they are we won't be leaving it ten years to go back, in fact we are already talking about going back in July and September but staying longer this time.

The Trotwood is clean, friendly, and quite, it has great views to the sea front, ample parking, very close to the town and the breakfast is great!! with a really good choice on the menu.

Great value for money worth every penny, and it was not a lot of them, as we said we think they have it spot on.

We had a great visit to Yarmouth although very short we can honestly say Ian and Sharon made all the difference.

We should probably not be writing this as next time we visit we might not get in but you will be hard pushed to find a better place to stay.

Just had a lovely long weekend at Trotwoods. Never want to leave because Ian, Sharon and Bobbie make you feel so at home. Nothing was too much trouble even give us the spread we ask for. Rooms, as always, lovely and comfy. Breakfast was fantastic as always. Stay here - you won't regret it.

Room Tip: All rooms are great!!

We researched lots of accommodation in Great Yarmouth before settling on The Trotwood, based on the great and accurate reviews on Trip Advisor. My wife and I would whole heartedly recommend The Trotwood to anyone visiting this part of the world. As many of these reviews will testify, the hosts Ian and Sharon really offer tremendous hospitality and service. The room we had offered an excellent sea view, was very well furnished and comfortable. We had never explored Norfolk before and this offered a great base from which to do so - the breakfast really setting us up for each day!!
Thanks once again to Ian and Sharon
