“A friendly welcome and nicely decorated”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014

A good location right on the front with a sea view, and a very friendly welcome.
Room and public spaces nicely decorated.
Car park is a very tight squeeze to get to. If your car is wide, you'll struggle to get down the drive, as the scratch marks on the drain pipes show!!!!
Breakfast ok. If you like the usual fry up you'll be fine. As vegans we were a little disapointed at the lack of fresh fruit. The only fruit was tinned grapefruit, but we're probably not the typical visitor!

Just had the last 4 days staying and attending a course at the Furzedown Hotel and would recommend this venue to anyone.
The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the food was very good with a very good selection on the menu.
The owners and staff were very friendly and nothing was to much trouble at anytime of the day thanks and hope to be back soon.

Was down to deliver a course, found the owners and indeed all the staff to be really friendly, the hotel and rooms were very clean and comfortable, but as the title of this review suggests, the food was outstanding !! My wife was getting well annoyed at me describing the evenings delights I had the pleasure to taste while she was stuck at home !!
Nice hotel, great staff and lovely food, I would recommend the Furzedown to anyone.

This is my second visit to Furzedown Hotel and will certainly visit again. Excellent room and good value, we have a springer spaniel who was also very welcome. The breakfast kippers are the best I've had and on this occasion the hotel bar/lounge area had a lovely Christmas feel to it with the quality festive decorations. Positioned on the sea front opposite are the dunes and beach where 'Ollie' (our dog) can run free and 5mins walk from the seaside attractions

Room Tip: On two visits to the hotel we have had our springer spaniel with us and on each visit then we have h...

Peter & Eve, Southend-on-sea, Essex, just returned from a one night stay at the Furzedown Hotel, Great Yarmouth.
The occasion, a lifelong friends birthday party.
From the moment we walked in the door, we were made very welcome , excellent rooms, top quality food, warm and friendly helpful staff.
A little gem!
Thank you for a wonderful experience .

Fantastic hosts. Made our whole family feel very welcome, including the dog!. The room we stayed in was lovely and the food was great too.
The hotel is also in a great location, right on the sea front and only a few minutes walk to all amenities
