“Puts the 'GREAT' into Great Yarmouth”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

This was my fifth stay at The Fjaerland Hotel and as always, ticked all the boxes. On approach, day or night this is the Hotel that stands above the rest. During the day the stunning hanging baskets that cascade down the white wash walls of the hotel, or at night the mood lighting that invites you to 'come on over'. The proprietors always seem genuinely pleased to see us and make is feel welcome from the off. The rooms, nicely decorated with full tea and coffee facilities are very clean and comfortable. I recommend the sea view, absolutely beautiful. The hotel is well located for all that Great Yarmouth offers, with Regents Road a short walk away and the beautiful sandy beach literally a 2 minute walk. I always look forward to breakfast, its up there with the best I have tasted in any hotel with a great selection. A bonus with The Fjaerland hotel is the licensed bar which is great for a night cap. Parking the car right out side is also great which is free, but don't forget to get your permit from the staff, the parking wardens are very strict on this. If your looking for a nice friendly family hotel, then this one is a must.

We stayed here in the July after having trouble finding anywhere as most places were booked up. Booked on the phone and felt had an issue with us because we said we may arrive after 7pm but didn't think too much of it.

The two rooms we had were clean enough, one had a slight view of sea and the other looked onto some parking spots and washing at the back of houses. Rooms OK, had tea, coffee etc. Bathroom was a nightmare door wouldn't shut properly, shower you could hardly move in and to get hot water had to run hot water tap in basin for ages then switch the shower on.

The plus point was the very friendly lady who served on at breakfast time and the breakfast was very good and would give 5 stars for her and the breakfast.

We found the landlady very rude and we realised we were correct about the original phone call. In terms we could only class as the school mistress telling off the naughty children when we explained another of our party would arrive after 7pm were told she would not be there to let them in, we explained we would let them in which she looked annoyed at and we felt very unwelcome. She then went onto say the bar would not be open unless anyone went in before 7pm and they usually locked up at this time.

We then had a 'lecture' on not allowing any other guests in incase it was people who were not staying there, a lecture on car parking and basically being told off for folding the parking permit the wrong way! How our party kept calm and been spoken to in this way I will never know!

Any question we asked seemed to be met with a lecture! The final straw came when being shown to the rooms one room was above another guests and we were told that we needed to be quiet as the guest below would hear us (fair enough) then told do not jump up and down on the floor. The guests in this room were over 30 years old, so were not about to jump up and down!!

Would not stay here again and although the lady at breakfast was lovely the attitude of the landlady was shocking. At least it gave us all a good laugh at how random it all was when we went over what had happened!

Was met with a lovely warm welcome, room was spotless with great view of the sea. Breakfast had everything you could wish for all cooked fresh to order. Amazing location especially if you don't have or don't want to drive. Lovely for a solo traveler. Staff immaculately dressed for breakfast all with hotel badges on. A really great traditional English B&B great value, just perfect!

Pat & Vic very warm friendly & welcoming and Helen never failed to brighten up the morning and get your day off to a good start. stairs etc explained on arrival & I use a walking stick and managed ok both up and down the down each time. Nothing is too much trouble breakfast great choice of fruit cereals endless supplies of toast and tea & coffee and food cooked to perfection each day would recommend staying here to anyone and wouldn't think of staying anywhere next time we return to Great Yarmouth thankyou Pat, Vic and all the staff at Fjaerland for a wonderful break away see you all soon

Hotel looks nice from the outside. Room in the loft was ok if a little small but generally well presented although a mixer shower tap on the bath would be a bonus. The potential for banging your head on the beams when getting out of the bath is high and my daughter can unfortunately testify to this! The biggest plus is the breakfast which offers good variety, quality and quantity. It was also very chirpily served to set your day off on a bright positive note. The biggest downs were the tight narrow and twisty last set of steps to the top floor room and the disappointment when we found the bar was never open to enjoy a nightcap before bed and I got a slight sense of things being done on the cheap. Having said this, the excellent, if a little more than expectedly noisy central location, with free parking(with a £20 deposit), make this hotel fair value

Room Tip: The attic room 14 I think, would require a reasonable level of fitness to get a case up and down and...
