Treated myself to a weekend away to visit the Horatio Nelson Museum, and boy oh boy, did I pick the right B&B. Sandra and Philip are absolutely brilliant -- he even picked me up from Great Yarmouth train station, then gave me a quick car tour of the area, so I knew where I'd be going (including the Nelson monument, which I DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT). Have to note that the Seahorse is smack dab in the middle of everything; location-wise, you can't go wrong, no matter what your plans for your stay are.
Was in a room for one with an en-suite bathroom, and it was just right. Cozy and comfortable, but not at all a squeeze. In fact, it was the perfect place to crash out after a train journey and then a long day on my feet visiting museums. (If you didn't know: Great Yarmouth has six beautifully curated museums, and you should really make an effort to go.)
Cannot commend the full English breakfast each morning enough. This is the standard by which I judge most things, and it hasn't led me astray yet. There's also free wi-fi and a little, reasonably-priced bar in the lounge, which Phil tends each night.
The personalised and personable service made for a really enjoyable, high-value weekend away. So happy to have spent a weekend at the Seahorse. Will definitely return in future.
