“Excellent Birthday Party venue”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

Recently held my wife's 70th birthday party celebrations here. A fantastic evening for 80 family and friends. Paul and Lisa the proprietors were more than helpful in suggesting/accommodating our requirements and assuring arrangements in the period leading up to the party. Although they weren't there on the night they left us in the capable hands of manager Stephen and David running the bar. Stephen couldn't do enough for us to ensure the evening was a great success and the service at the bar was brilliant. Great food and music much appreciated by all the guests. Particular mention must go to the staff who impressed so many of the guests with their welcome at the door and their attentive and efficient service at the tables. Many who stayed over on the night really enjoyed the accommodation and breakfast too.
In summary a thoroughly enjoyable experience for us all - many thanks Paul, Lisa, Stephen,
David and all your staff. Very happy to recommend this as a venue for any celebratoion.

Have to say this hotel is lovely. Went away with a couple if girlfriends and this hotel was ideal.
10 minute walk to the town, pubs, clubs, shops.
The owners are fantastic and can't do enough to help you.
Breakfast was lovely too and even got us black pudding :-)
Rooms are good with nice comfortable beds and hot hot water :-)
We will defo be going back again, and after this visit,we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else.
Well done guys :-)

Revisited the hotel for yet another fantastic trip with my Grandson over the Easter weekend.

All the staff continue to be very hospitable and nothing is too much for them. The rooms and facilities are great and the location of the hotel is great for a walk to all that Yarmouth has to offer.

Thanks again, Paul & Harry

We chose this hotel due to its tripadvisor reviews and ratings and were not disappointed. We had a top floor room with a dual aspect sea view which was lovely. The room was a good size, very clean and the beds were very comfortable. My only criticism is that the bathroom although very clean and perfectly serviceable could do with a bit of tlc. The staff were very helpful, friendly and courteous and could not be faulted. The view of the sea from the breakfast table was fantastic. I would definitely stay here again if we were visiting Great Yarmouth in the future.

Room Tip: You can't beat a sea view!

Had an overnight stay over Easter and everything we had read about this hotel was true. Very friendly owners and great hospitality. The room was homely and beds comfortable and you were made to feel very at home in the bar lounge. Rather than eat at the restaurant although the menu looked amazing, we decided to stroll into town which was a 10 minute walk. Breakfast the next morning, you were greeted and shown to your table which was your room number and set up for however many in your party with highchairs already placed if a toddler included. Breakfast was a helping yourself to juice or cereal and then with the option of an English Breakfast or Kippers..extra tea/coffee/toast also provide and was all delicious.
The courtesy of the owners and staff and comfort of this hotel will not disappoint and will go back again!

I picked this hotel, after reading several reviews, for a few days away as a birthday treat for my friend. We can't fault the hospitality and courtesy of the staff from the owners down to the restaurant staff and talking of the restaurant the food was fantastic...we did intend to only eat the first night in the hotel but ended up eating there every night and one of the chef's desserts was to die for!!!! Attention by restaurant staff couldn't be faulted...they had a big birthday party on one of the nights but staff ensured we didn't lack attention. Rooms were serviced every day and very comfortable, bathroom, although small, was spotless. We had a room with a sea view and there was no noise from traffic but was only about 10 mins walk from town centre. Good car park at hotel...
Infact we enjoyed our stay so much we've already booked for my birthday next year. Well done to everyone at the hotel...thanks.

Room Tip: Any over looking the sea
