Kilbrannan Guest House
Ranked #2 of 99 Great Yarmouth B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 April 2014

Our first ever time of making the effort on TA to pass comment on our experience of our recent stay. The best hosts, the best breakfasts, plus a recently freshly stocked supply of real ale from the local micro-brewery, made me especially happy! This is true B&B heaven. From arrival to departure nothing was too much trouble and Julie & Gary really are a credit to the industry. The many awards and great reviews really are well deserved and to cap it all they even managed to fix us 4 days of blue skies and brilliant sunshine. In the lottery of the B&B world this is the best I have ever found. One word of warning though - don't embark on a diet before your stay - otherwise you will struggle to do the breakfast 'feast' justice.

Thank you for your excellent review,it was a pleasure to meet such a lovely family
We put our lives into running Kilbrannan to the standards you enjoyed, we are happy you appreciated it all. The rooms have all the things you need to make your stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible and our breakfasts are all cooked/ prepared using the best quality, locally sourced or homemade ingredients. They are also cooked freshly after you have sat at the breakfast table in the morning and ordered whatever you feel like at a time to suit you with no need to pre order or fill in any kind of 'tick list'. (after all, how can you know what you want to eat for breakfast before you've even had a meal the previous night?)
Our location in Great Yarmouth is perfect to explore the area very easily by foot within moments of our doorstep.
The local ales are proving very popular.
We look forward to seeing you all again next time
Warm regards
Gary & Julie

We luv this B & B and have stayed here every Easter for the past 5 years. Everything is spotlessly clean, the attention to detail second to none and the breakfast choices are extensive and extremely tasty! We'll definitely be back next year as long as Julie and Gary are still running it.

See you next year

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

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
