“Garry - Grantham "An excellent B+B”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

Welcome on arrival was as if Julie & Gary had known you for years.The we were in was exceptionally clean and warm with everything that was required.There was no need to have packed hairdryer or toiletries as they were all provided.The breakfasts were out of this world with such a chic all freshly cooked.Already said we will return next march as we were so impressed.Could not find any faults and must congratulate Gary&Julie on all the hard work they have obviously put into the business and their friendliness, rather than it just being a business.Top marks and even more besides.Also the location is central making it easy to get around and the cake in the room on arrival was just one of the special touches along with fresh milk in the fridge.

Excellent, thank you for your feedback.
Each guest is welcomed as if part of our family, you are staying in our home after all. The great service we provide is done with pleasure for your enjoyment and the extra touches such as the jug of fresh milk in your fridge and the homemade cakes in your room are there to enhance your stay even further.
Breakfast is a popular part of all our lovely guests stays as it is made using the freshest, best quality, locally sourced ingredients as well as our homemade things such as the 'Kilbrannan Special' and the fact that you don't have to order anything until you are sitting at the table in the morning makes it even more special.
We look forward to seeing you again in March 2015 if not before.
Warm wishes
Gary & Julie

My partner and I can give nothing but praise to Kilbrannan guest house, from the moment we arrived everything was perfect.
Our room was lovely and spacious, modern with all amenities, not to mention a super comfy bed.
The location is without doubt the best you could ask for, minutes walk to the pier/front and the town centre, so no need to be driving everywhere here!
Breakfast was amazing, the hosts pride themselves on this and so they should too! A good selection of cereals and yoghurts to help yourself and a menu of freshly cooked meals that were exceedingly tasty (I highly recommend the salmon and egg muffin)
The owners Gary and Julie were brilliant hosts through out our stay, friendly and helpful, always available for info and simply a lovely couple that we are glad we had the pleasure of meeting.
I would recommend Kilbrannan to anyone visiting Yarmouth, I guarantee you will not regret it!

Thank you for your great feedback, we work hard to make sure our gusts have a great stay.
Our location is indeed perfect to explore everything Great Yarmouth has to offer by foot within just a minute or 2. Most guests just park their car then leave it as there's no need to use it unless a trip to the broads is on the agenda.
We are pleased you enjoyed our breakfasts as we are as you say very proud of the quality of the ingredients, all either locally sourced or homemade and always cooked freshly with no need to order the night before.
It was lovely to meet you both and we hope to see you again soon.
Best regards
Gary & Julie

We chose the Kilbrannan because of the 5 star reviews on Trip Advisor and it more than met our expectations. Gary and Julie are very welcoming and do everything possible to ensure you enjoy your stay. Our room was comfortable and well- equipped. The home made cake was enjoyed and we appreciated the fresh milk in the fridge for our tea. Breakfast was delicious especially the Kilbrannan special as a change from cereal. It was our first visit to Yarmouth and Julie told us about different places to visit and the situation of the B&B means it's easy to walk along the Prom in either direction. We also explored the old quarter which is a complete contrast to the front and very interesting. We will return to Yarmouth and a stay at the Kilbrannan.

Thank you so much for your review, it's most appreciated.
It is always a pleasure for us to introduce people to Great Yarmouth for the first time as there is such an abundance of things to do and see. People often assume the only area on offer is the seafront but they are so wrong. We are pleased you enjoyed the heritage side of Great Yarmouth and also enjoyed your stay with us. The many facilities we provide such as fridges in all rooms and homemade welcome cakes are there to make your stay even better, we are glad you liked it all. Hopefully we will see you again when next in Great Yarmouth.
Best regards
Gary & Julie

Had another 4 night stay with Gary and Julie and gotta say it just gets better and better.
This was our 4th stay since we first visited last July we love it that much. Gary and Julie have become very good friends and as usual they went the extra mile to make our stay one of the best.
We stayed in room 1 again which is so comfy and spacious, We didn't want to go out sometimes. Missing our yummy breakfasts Gary. Thanks again for a lovely stay and can't wait untill next time.

We have been to Kilbrannan several times now and there is always a warm welcome waiting. Gary and Julie are wonderful hosts and I honestly cant think of anything negative, the rooms are clean and homely and the breakfast is second to none.There is home made cake left for you in the rooms which is just one of the special touches.Even if you have never thought of going to Great Yarmouth before consider it now just to meet Gary and Julie - you'll go back

Very clean and comfortable guest house that is extremely well run.

The breakfast is first class - with good quality locally sourced sausages bacon - and indeed smoked fish - carefully cooked and served.

Gary and Julie are very customer focused - in a homely B&B way - making sure that any need you have is met.

Cannot think of any negatives - so have awarded it five.

Thank you for your feedback.
We enjoy providing the service we do for our guests, they are of course our highest priority. We are happy you enjoyed it all.
Our breakfasts are of the highest quality and as you say, locally sourced or home made with nothing pre cooked with a need to order the day before. All diets are also catered for.
We hope to see you again next time.
