“Second visit as great as the first...”
Reviewed 28 January 2013

After such a lovely stay last year, we decided to revisit Tirah Guest House and were just as impressed this time around. The room was spotless as before and the breakfast delicious. Steve and Karen are fantastic hosts, really welcoming and we can't recommend it highly enough.

We first stayed in Tirah when it was recommended to us by some friends who also love to visit the east coast. Having stayed over the summer we returned for a short post-christmas break. On both occasions we could not have asked for more, the owners are so welcoming and the rooms of a really high standard, the best bit of all.....the breakfast, yummy! We will be back soon.

Dear 007
We were so pleased to see you again, and so pleased you once again enjoyed your stay at TIRAH. It means so much to us both that you chose to stay at TIRAH once again, as we know you love the area, and have visited on many occasions. We thank you so much for the lovely review, we know how busy you are filming at this present time.
Next time you see H.M, would you please mention TIRAH GUEST HOUSE, you never know?

Please do not forget my offer

My partner and I were looking for a quiet New Years Eve with a morning walk on the beach. We booked a room at Tirah in the morning and arrived that evening to a welcome reception from Karen and Steve. The room was warm inviting and spotless. After a very comfortable night's sleep we were treated to an hearty and delicious breakfast before heading off to nearby Aldebrugh for a walk on the beach. I find it surprising that we managed to get rooms in such a lovely Guest house. I'm surer it's because they have not been open long. I can only assume that as word spreads this little gem will soon be busy. We will be back and may bring family.

A group of us (couples) stayed here in all the rooms for one night as we were visiting for a friends birthday.
The rooms were all bright, clean and nicely decorated. There was plenty of parking and we were given a warm welcome. When we returned from the birthday party around 11:30pm, we thought we would have a nightcap (which we had bought with us). There was a large kitchen/breakfast room which we were shown earlier so we sat in there at the kitchen table, quietly chatting and enjoying our nightcap. The next minute Steve(the landlord) came storming in very irrate and told us to leave, he was fairly aggressive in his attitude which was unnecessary and made it clear we shouldn't be in the kitchen. We felt like naughty children being chastised and sent to our rooms. We were a group of 40+aged adults, not doing any harm or making any noise just catching up and enjoying a nightcap. This put a bit of a dampener on the evening.
Breakfast next morning was good (although only served until 9am) so no lie in!
It's a shame about them being so inflexible! This incident would make me think twice about staying here again as Steve's attitude was uncalled for and totally unnecessary.

Thank you so much for rating Tirah Guest House as very good with Tripadvisor.
With regard to the use of our kitchen /diner for a social gathering shortly before midnight
You never even asked
The answer would have been no
We were,and still are,most upset
