My wife had a school reunion in Lowestoft, although we only live an hour away we decided to stop overnight. By chance we saw this place on the web. It is great, a modern take on the guesthouse. The rooms are spacious and beautifully presented. Our bathroom was huge, free standing bath plus rain shower. Breakfast was included and delicious.

I think my headline says it all. You can park outside on the road for free, The rooms are very nice (we had room 2 which has a great view). The breakfast would do justice to a top hotel. Friendly owners. Steep steps up to the room and down to breakfast so might be a struggle for infirm people. Internet...

The room was quite large with tea/coffee making facilities, a hairdryer, TV and wifi. The bathroom was large and beautiful with tiling throughout, a shower and a...

On arrival, parking was easy and convenient. I was welcomed in a friendly and helpful way. My room and ensuite were very clean and comfortable with a wonderful sea view. The towels in the ensuite big and fluffy! Literally only a stone throw to walk the Esplanade and take in the sea air. Would recommend the Shish Meze bar for...

We booked this B&B at short notice on Booking.Com as another holiday had fallen through due to the travel company going into voluntary liquidation. When we arrived we were made to feel very welcome and shown straight to our room. The room was a small twin and simple and clean and well provided with TV, WiFi and very good tea/coffee...

Pretty French themed B&B with friendly hosts. Lovely room with sea view and large walk in shower room. Great breakfast with plenty of choice and home made preserves. Nearby access to plenty of eating places and convenient to town centre and railway station. Good to be able to visit other resorts easily by train such as Oulton Broad and Beccles...

The potted plants at the front leave the visitor in no doubt that the hosts care about detail and welcome! Everything is welcoming and clean, and rooms with a sea view do have a great view!

The place is lovely from the outside, well kept flower pots. We were greeted and shown to our room, the guy insisted we both looked at the shower together to be told how it worked, he said that they had wifi, but I could only get it in the basement. They kept checking the connection, there was enough signal to...
