Reviewed 20 April 2013

This is the first time we have stayed at the Spindrift and it will definitely not be the last. We were made very welcome by Dawn on our arrival and made to feel 'at home' so our stay was very relaxing. Our room was spotless, very comfortable and the little extras you don't normally expect were an added bonus. Breakfast was excellent, served just how we liked it and combined with Dawn's smiling face and cheery personality set us up for the day. The refrigerator in our room was always well stocked with milk and the tea, coffee and chocolate were also kept well replenished and so you never felt you would run short for drinks. We really can't wait to return for another stay at the Spindrift Guest House.

We found this to be a very thoughtfully run guest house offering everything you need to make your stay a pleasant one but with the addition of a few little extras which served to make it just that little bit special and on a par with accommodation considerably more expensive.
Our room was generously proportioned, well arranged, clean and modern with an extraordinary attention to detail we did not expect to see for the budget price.
Breakfast was exactly what we asked for, well cooked and tasty. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for Dawn as she remembered, to our surprise, exactly how we liked our food cooked and served.
It was nice that we were encouraged to treat the house like a home from home and when we visit again, which we will, it will be the Spindrift Guest House we will head for!

For the price of this guest house we were not expecting much but we were so pleasantly suprised! The room was very well maintained, with lovely added touches such as shower gel etc build in to the shower room, a well stocked hot drinks selection. The bed was unbelieveable comfortable! Best nights sleep we have had in a while! The breakfast kept us going well in to the afternoon. The owner was friendly, approachable and full of good advice regarding where to eat and where to go. Booking was online was also extremely easy. A lovely break away. If we do return to Great Yarmouth we would not think twice about returning to the Spindrift!

The Spindrift is a very well managed guest house in a position convienient position close to the town, beach and market. It offers home from home accommodation good sized rooms with all the things you need. The Breakfasts are served piping hot and of good portions.

Nothing is too much trouble for Dawn the host, she takes great pride in what she does.

Me and my partner have stayed here about 4 times now and Dawn the proprietor seems to be able to surparce herself every time we stay. She welcomes you with a warm and friendly manner and makes you feel very welcome. The facilities are excellent, clean and well maintained. The rooms are very well equiped with everything you need, but if there is anything missing Dawn is always happy to help. The food is excellent and the breakfast keeps you going all day, with only a sanwich or something to keep you going till you go for an evening meal. there are plenty of types and styles of eateries in the area only taking a short walk to get to. Dawn is also a mind of information about local atractions and events etc. This 4 star B and B should be awarded 5 stars in my eyes because of its great facilities, food and wonderful host. We will definately be staying here again in the future.

Room Tip: All of the rooms seem to be good value for money.

Our return trip this year was still every bit as good as last year. Dawn is always available for new suggestions (not that many are needed). Individuals dietary requirements are always taken on board. Staying in Yarmouth? Spindrift is a must.

Room Tip: Depending on your needs there is a room for you.

My wife and i recently had a two night break staying at the Spindrift. We found about the property via an internet search, and after reading the reviews which were all positive, we had to see for ourselves, we were not to be let down. The room was very clean and tidy with everything in place for a comfortable stay.The room we stayed in (1) overlooked the garden and was very quiet and looked as though it had recently been refurbished, with walk in shower, towels, soaps etc.The room was quite large and came with a flat screen tv,bedside radio alarm, tea and coffee making facilities, with biscuits,There was a hair dryer available and plenty of hanging space for clothes.Nothing was too much trouble for the owner (Dawn) who was on hand to attend to any of our needs.The breakfast was superb with a wide choice of options available, all in all, a great stay, and we look forward to when we visit again.

Room Tip: Free parking is available, you may have to wait for a space to become vacant,once the day trippers h...
