“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2013

Picked this hotel from many available and was very pleased with my choice. This hotel is in a great location for both the seafront and the town. It was very nicely furnished and very clean and we were made to feel very welcome by the owners Shaun and Debbie. The breakfast was excellent and you could choose exactly what you wanted by mixing and matching from the menu. Our room was large and airy and having a floor standing fan was a great addition as it was very warm. Having a fridge was also great so we could have some cool drinks available. I would thoroughly recommend.

At first I was a bit dubious as some of the area is a bit run- down, but needn't have worried as all was fine for our 2 night stay, Sunnyside itself is a welcome ray of sunshine on the street with multicoloured flowers everywhere a lovely welcome indeed, and from the owners also.
Our Large double en-suite room was at the front of the property, it was a good size and bright / cheery. Loved the fact it had 2 tub chairs , coffee tables & fridge + a floor standing fan! I was delighted with that as the weather was very warm, we used it a lot.
I could be picky about a couple things but won't be as nothing was that much of an issue.
All in all great value for money & nice to have the room only choice :)

This B+B is a real gem! It's very close to the beach and the Hippodrome Circus, as well as the Marine Pub - which seems to be open all hours but isn't loud or rowdy. Shaun and Debbie are very welcoming and the establishment is very very clean. This is our second visit and there will definitely be more.

Room Tip: Seagulls are very noisy wherever you stay!

we stayed in room 7. small double en-suite. i was a bit sceptical booking but i was not dissapointed whatsoever. as soon as i walked in i could smell the CLEAN BEDSHEETS which is a big thing for me. everywhere was clean. towels were provided. theres a FRIDGE which i think all hotels should have. even the furniture was MODERN which i was not expecting. the bed was so COMFY, everything was just right. the room states small but to be honest i was expecting smaller,it was plenty big enough for us although maybe not enough storage if we were staying longer than a few days. unfortunately we hadnt got time for breakfast in the morning but i hear its very good. i will definitly stay again.
I feel terrible for saying anything bad but if i was the owner i would like to know- shower head needed a wipe (something sticky on it)
shower walls had been wiped but smeary, maybe not a clean cloth?
had to hold kettle down for a while for it to boil by itself :)
very small points but thought i would mention them.

very nice couple stayed there from 2nd aug till 5th , very comfortable room with all facilities you need.

The location is central to everything you need ie beach front , shops etc .
The only thing that was a bit off putting was the state of some of the places around there , ie houses run down pubs etc but thats nothing to do with debbie and shaun.
if i come again would maybe try to get place in a better part of yarmouth.

Very friendly couple, had our own key which was a bonus as could come in and out whenever we wanted, the room no.7 was very clean + tidy and great value for money! Will definitely return again next year.

Went to sunnyside Hotel with a couple of friends to celebrate both our wedding anniversarys. On arrival Debbie greeted us and showed us to our rooms she even carried one of our bags up for us. We stayed in rooms 5 and 7 both where spotlessly clean though small they had everything we needed. You are given your own key so you can come and go as you please. We paid the extra £4 per day to have breakfast which was delicious with a choice of cereals and a full English which Shaun served us. Both Shaun and Debbie where lovely people and we definatly would stay there again. Thank you both for a lovely stay .We would recommend you to our family and friends.
