“Great for a getaway with the beach at your doorstep.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

Would highly reccomend staying here If your after a great B&B that goes the extra mile. The hosts are so accommodating regarding breakfast preferences and any extras needed such as pillows. They're always more than happy to help and make you feel welcomed from arrival to when you leave. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Great Yarmouth!

We spent a couple of days here just before the May bank holiday for the first time, the Kilbrannan guest house is perfect, Gary and Julie are so welcoming and take the time to get to know you personally which makes them such a friendly and approachable couple, the rooms are spotless, breakfast is beautiful.....there is not one negative thing to say about the Kilbrannan!

On the day we checked out Gary and Julie recommended going to see the seals on the beach, it was brilliant and we wouldn't have known about it had they not recommended it, so a big thank you to both Gary and Julie for a truely brilliant weekend xx

After a bereavement in the family my daughter and I needed to get away from all the stress back home. After all my accommodation searching in Great Yarmouth Kilbrannan was definitely the best I came across and was not disappointed on my arrival. We arrived well before checking-in time and our room was ready, we were able to freshen up after our journey to start our break. Gary & Julie are superb hosts, nothing is too much for them. The room was cleaned everyday and the breakfasts are first class. The location is absolutely perfect, we had a two minute walk to the beach and various high street shops and banks within 5min walk away. I will definitely not be using any other establishment for my breaks in Great Yarmouth.

Great, thank you for your review.
We work very hard to maintain our standards to the high levels you enjoyed, we are happy you appreciated it all.
You are right, our location within Great Yarmouth is perfect to explore everything on offer without the need to drive anywhere or catch a bus (unless you want to go further afield), and as you know we are very happy to pick you up from and deliver you back to the train or coach stations.
It was a pleasure to meet you both and we would be happy to see you again soon.

We have just returned from a 2 day break in Great Yarmouth, visiting family and friends. I haven't been to this part of the country for many years, so trusted the reviews on here.. Boy was I right to!
Gary and Julie go overboard to tick boxes. Their friendliness and care go way over the call of duty! I dont think there was anything that I could not have found in my room... Even an Emery board for my nails!!?? Breakfast cooked fresh to order. Dippy Eggs AND soldiers with real bread was my choice but there are loads of options.
I would recommend this again and again... Do yourself a favour and go try it out!
Big thanks guys for your nursing skills also!! ( Malt Vinegar and a lemon) We will return! x

Thank you so much for your review,
We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us in Great Yarmouth, it was a pleasure to meet you both.
All the facilities we provide in each of our rooms are only the things we would hope to find if we stayed away somewhere. Sadly we are yet to find anywhere else that does! If there is anything else our guests require we will do our best to find it.
Our breakfasts are of an excellent quality and freshly cooked. The choice goes beyond most expectations, we are happy you enjoyed them.
We hope to see you again when you're next in the area. (we'll make sure we have plenty of lemons in)
Best regards
Gary & Julie

This is my second trip to the Kilbrannan with my husband and on this occasion we took our two teenage children and one of their friends.
Once again Gary and Julie were perfect hosts, nothing is ever too much trouble, they have got to be the most genuine B&B/Guest House owners we have ever met!!!!
We arrived earlier than our check in time but were greeted with a huge smile and told our rooms were ready and waiting for us.
Both rooms were as before spotlessly clean and had everything we needed plus extras...Julies homemade cakes waiting for us were gratefully received.
We all slept perfectly, very comfortable beds.
Breakfast on both mornings was fantastic, everything cooked to order perfectly by Gary and served with a smile every day by Julie.
Excellent menu choice, no one should go away hungry from breakfast!!
The Kilbrannan is ideally situated for virtually everything, all walkable distance and on street residential parking too....unless you wish to go further afield there really is no need to take your car anywhere.
The kids had a great time and are already wanting to go back for another weekend away!!!
We really cant emphasise how good the hosts are...all b&b/guest house owners should have a couple of nights here to see how it should be done....well done to you both.
We WILL be back :-)

Having had a very stressful time over the last few months we needed some rest & recuperation so we booked few days at Kilbrannan. Everything was just perfect from the welcome we received from Gary & Julie,to the spotless room with Julie's home made cakes, & not forgetting the breakfast with my favorite the 'Kilbrannan Special'. would be hard to find a better breakfast anywere.
I arrived with High BP but after a few days it was back to normal thanks to the attention we received, i'm sure we would not have got any better treatment if we had gone to a health spa. So there you have it if you are feeling stressed have a few days at Kilbrannan it will do you a world of good.

In forty years of travelling the Kilbrannan is just about the best guest house we have stayed in,.Room 1 was lovely with bay windows and a large adjoining bathroom.We were the only occupants of this floor and by leaving the bedroom door open at all times gave a feeling of greater freedom and space.We found a very well stocked hospitality tray and Julies home made cake awaiting us.Breakfast was to die for with every taste catered for.Sourced where possible from local produce,cooked and presented to perfection.On deciding to visit Yarmouth races Gary immediately offered to take us(we don't drive).Gary and Julies welcome is well documented in previous reviews and justifiably so.On completion of a wonderful break Gary took us to the railway station.another lovely touch..

Great, thank you for your review,
We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, it was a pleasure. Driving you to the race track was no problem at all, it's all part of the service.
Breakfast is extremely popular at Kilbrannan because of it's quality & choice. Also the fact you can order anything with anything and not have to pre order makes it even more special.
We will be pleased to see you again soon.
