Reviewed 29 July 2011

Thank you Julie, Gary and Charlie for the excellent service you provided on our 4 day stay at the kilbranan guest house. The food was lovely at breakfast and evening meal. the room we stayed in was very comfortable and spacious and the extra little touches e.g fruit and sweets made it even better. You were excellent hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Hope to see you again very soon.
By the way got home without getting lost he he he.

believe me once you have found this gem of a guest house and have stayed there once you honestly will not want to stay at any other guest house in Gt Yarmouth. The welcome, cleanliness, service and quality and quantity of food is second to none. Just hope they can fit you in when you call to book.

Thank you very much for your review,
53% of our guests are return guests which we are very proud of and It's great to see familiar faces again so we are glad you have highlighted the trouble people get trying to book dates when leaving it until the last minute as its likely that the dates you want might not be avaiable.
It's fantastic you have rebooked for later this year and we are really looking forward to seeing you again.
We will make sure we have plenty of fish in !!!

Thanks again

having found the Kilbrannon guest house by mistake a few years ago ,it is certainly the best mistake you could make! from the moment you walk through the door you are welcomed 3 fold by the hosts.They will do [almost] everything to make your stay extra special the food is cooked to perfection by Gary to order and using the finest local produce wherever possible.Everywhere is spotless and shiny and with fresh flowers around you have a permament smile on your face.If you wish to play on the wii the hosts will give you a good challenge or you can waych a dvd in your own room.The only negatives are you eat too much and your break isnt long enough!!

Thank you for your review.
We work very hard for our guests so to be appreciated in this way makes it all worthwhile.

We believe you work hard for your money so to spend some of it on a well earned break is a great way to unwind and relax.
It is our opinion that a guest isn't just paying for a nice room or nice owners or even both, but they are also paying for a service that goes beyond their expectations.
We provide all of ths and more which is why we have so many guests return.

Thanks again for the review and hope to see you again very soon

Best wishes

From the moment we arrived we knew we'd made the right choice. Julie and Gary were very welcoming, the room was immaculate as were the communal areas. We were amazed to find chocolates, fruit, toiletries and bottled water in the room along with enough supplies to make more hot drinks than you could ever need. All of which was replenished daily. Particularly useful was the welcome pack in the room which provided a list of at least 10 recommnded restaurants and covered all types of cuisine. We ate at a different one every night and they were all fantastic. Julie even lent us her loyalty card for one which saved us £15!

Also while we were there they were on hand to answer any questions we had about local atractions and often had money saving vouchers for these too!

The breakfast is amazing quality and very diverse in the choices offered. Our only regret is that we're not big eaters and couldnt take advantage as much as we'd have liked to.

All in all we have never stayed at such a great b&b and we will be back there if we have another trip to yarmouth.

Thank you for your lovely comments.
We run our Guest House to a standard that we would lke to stay in ourselves and we love to add in all the extras that you receive such as the ones you have mentioned.
We also think that breakfast is extremely important which is why we use the best quality local ingredients alongside our made made produce, and cooking/ preparing it all freshly shows our respect for the food.
Our breakfasts are very popular with our guests and other accommodation providers alike so we appreciate the feedback.

Thanks again and hope to see you soon

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Kilbrannan, and were very impressed.Gary, Julie and Charlie are fabulous hosts, nothing is too much trouble.The room that we stayed in (room 1) was beautiful,with lots of nice little extras such as the PS2.
The breakfasts are out of this world: fruit, cerals, yogurts,home made smoothies and really great cooked breakfasts.The pots of jam, marmalade and pure honey on the tables were lovely too!!
We had been worried about parking, but were always able to get a space - and this has been over a bank holiday weekend.
