Welcomed at the door and nothing for the rest of the stay was too much trouble. Cleanliness and attention to detail second to none. They're own smoked kippers and a muesli with fruit compote as options for a cooked to order breakfast were superb. Gary and Julie were fantastic hosts really giving Great Yarmouth a boost by there knowledge of all aspects for things going on that weekend, from plays at the theatre to the dog racing. Will definitely be booking the Kilbrannan Guest House when next going to Great Yarmouth

Thank you for your review,
We are happy you all enjoyed your stay with us in Great Yarmouth.
Running Kilbrannan is our life and we put everything into making sure our guests have an experience that goes beyond expectations. Our knowledge of what's happening around the area is always passed on.
Breakfast is very popular due to the choice and quality of the ingredients including the 4 different fish dishes we offer which are all sourced from the only working smokehouse in Great Yarmouth.
We look forward to your next visit soon.
Best wishes
Gary & Julie

It was obvious from the start Gary & Julie who run Kilbrannan love what they do.
Nothing was too much trouble and it really felt like home.
Lovely touches of flowers, fruit, and fresh milk was most appreciative.
Comfortable, spotless, and very accommodating.
Their knowledge of the area was great.
A most pleasant holiday was spent whilst staying there, Breakfast Brilliant.
Would not hesitate to stay again.

Room Tip: Rooms to side of property in Russell road had sun midday to evening.

Stayed here over the May Bank Holiday. Location was very convenient to the seafront. Gary and Julie were very welcoming hosts and provide excellent tips about the best places to eat and visit locally. The breakfast was spectacular and the room was comfortable. Gary and Julie clearly work very hard to make the guesthouse the best possible place to stay. Don't stay anywhere else!

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.

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
