Reviewed 21 October 2011

I have used this hotel regularly for work and it is good value for money. They go out of thierir way to make your stay a pleasant one. All the rooms are ensuite and good size which is a bonus.
The breakfast will more than fill you up for your day ahead.

Well worth it.

Booked a week stay (at short notice) at Sunnydene and arrived during the Caister Soul Weekend - which we didn't attend.
Martin left us know immediately he had booked us into a room at the back of the hotel so we wouldn't be disturbed by other guests returning to the hotel in the early hours. We weren't disturbed at all by noise during our stay.
Parts of the B&B are in need of a little TLC, but as with other hotels and B&B's, this is an ongoing project.

Martin and his staff are all happy to help, no sensible request is a problem to them. Very friendly people.

Breakfast during the week is 8.30 to 9am. Juice, cereals, english breakfast, toast, jam and coffee. If you want a variation on the English breakfast just ask.

No problem with the shower, water temperature or room. The room comes equipped with hair dryer, kettle, tea and coffee, shower gel, shampoo, hair conditioner and a welcome pack in the bathroom.

Towels changed as you require, just leave the dirty towels in the shower tray.
Bins emptied each day.
Room was clean and tidy.

Martin is a good host with plenty of tales to tell!

The walk to the centre of Great Yarmouth takes approx 20 minutes, all flat ground, so unless you have trouble walking this is no problem.

The only issue we had was with Great Yarmouth itself, certain visitor attractions seem to close earlier in the season that other seaside towns we have visited.

Would have no hesitation in booking again at Sunnydene.

i stayed there two nights and had the small double room ( room number 11) on the third floor, the room was indeed small althought ideal for one and would have been very cramped indeed for two as it is intended. The shower provides plenty of cold water but very little hot althoght there is plenty of hot water available from the tap, As a result the shower is next to useless and needs some attention. The Breakfast is ok but some improvement is required as its a very rigid 08:30 to 09:00 service, i would very much of liked a 07:00 or 07:30 start time to be fair i was aware of this at the time of booking. Parking was not a problem as i think the hotel was very quite even so all the front parking was taken.
I must say on the positive side that the host were very friendly and we had a very good welcome and the location is in quite part ot the town. In summary the B&B is good value but could be so much better if they fixed the shower and have a bit more flexability on the breakfast service times.

Room Tip: dont go for room 11

We have noted the comments made and have already made a start on improving the hot water to the shower.

The comment about breakfast times in noted but you have to remember we are a 2 person operation with a bar, we already do about 18 hours a day, the rates we charge are very reasonable for the service we offer and could not justify employing someone to do early breakfast without having to increase our prices.

The room size meets the requirments of Visit Britian

After a referal we booked by telephone at short notice and stayed for 4 days . The B and B is clean and tidy with decor now a little dated . It is situated some distance from the main area of Gt Yarmouth with travelling into town a real pain by car . However the quiet this affords offsets the inconvenience .The owners are extremely friendly and very helpful . The full english breakfast is well presented and just about right to start the day .
Its a good old fashioned sea side B and B with the benefit of a bar and lounge area to chill after the fun at the promenade and its attractions.
In summary great value for money if in need of some fresh wallpaper here and there.
