“The food, hospitality and hotel was fantastic”
Reviewed 21 May 2013

I recently stayed in Great Yarmouth with my fiancé for two nights and we stayed at the Spindrift guest house. We arrived at the hotel on the Friday afternoon and received a warm welcome from the very beginning. The hospitality we received throughout the weekend was fantastic and the owner was extremely friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in was modern and new and incredibly clean and the breakfast was superb. There was also a range of different foods that you could have upon request of you do not like the usual English breakfast. We would recommend this guest house to friends and family and would definitely stay here again if we visited Great Yarmouth in the future.

I returned there again at the weekend. I had another excellent stay. The hosts are welcoming and friendly. I was given a spotless and comfortable double ensuite room, also with a good hearty english breakfast included. I think this offers unbeatable value considering the very reasonable prices. I plan to return when next in this resort.

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.
