We booked in to this hotel for a long week-end with a group of friends.Owners Paul and Linda with their staff could not have made us more welcome, nothing was too much trouble. They even made the two dogs belonging to one of our friends welcome. The food was of a high standard and plentiful, was served to the thirteen of us in unison. You will not go hungry at the Furzedown. We had a sea view room which was clean, bright and airy, with superb views over the Waterways Gardens to the Sea.

What a discovery this hotel was! We would definitely stay again when we are in the area.

We were travelling as a group of friends around Norfolk and used this hotel as our base. The staff are so friendly and couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome. Food is good and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Several other guests were returners and the whole atmosphere was relaxed, comfortable and efficient.
Would definitely stay here again. Many thanks to Paul and Lisa and their staff.

Room Tip: The corner room on the first floor overlooking the beach has fantastic views.You can hear the street...

Just stayed for 4 nights for a reunion in Great Yarmouth. What a lovely family run hotel, clean comfortable bedrooms. A great choice for breakfast - cooked to order. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Thanks to Lisa, Paul and all their staff for a great weekend. Will definitely stay here again.

This is a lovely friendly family-run B&B on Gt. Yarmouth seafront. Good value for money, friendly staff, big quiet rooms, lovely views, comfy beds, excellent service and good English breakfast. We booked this hotel for a wake and about 25 guests stayed at the hotel afterwards. The staff were amazing and did all they could to accommodate everyone. We also had a buffet and the food was lovely. I would highly recommend this B&B.

After looking at TripAdvisor for a recomendation for a stay in Gt Yarmouth and picking this hotel i have to say all the positive reviews are totally accurate. From the warm welcome we got right through to checking out the stay was excellent. They are also pet friendly which is a must for us as we have a dog. Nothing was too much trouble for them to do for us. We had lunch, dinner, and evening drinks in the bar followed by breakfast in the morning (breakfast was included in the room rate) The food was excellent and very good value for money. The bar is well stocked and the Rioja with dinner was one of the best ive tasted. The place is very well maintained and also has a warm family friendly air to it, so we found it very easy to relax and enjoy our stay. Our room was of a high standard also and very comfortable. Its also very central to everything as its on the sea front and just a short walk to the pleasure beach. Lovely views of the sea from the bar also. So if your staying in Yarmouth you wont be disappointed with this hotel. I think its the first time we have booked for another stay in the same hotel on checkout.

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.
