Unfortunately there isn’t a star rating low enough for this monstrosity of a b&b. It was unfortunate at the time of the booking, this was the only place that could accommodate 4 adults and 1 child over 2 rooms. Luckily after checking in...we found a place in Winterton-on-sea which I’ve given 5 stars and will going back too. Please read the reviews DO NOT BOOK HERE! Let’s start from the beginning, I’ve worked in the hotel Industry, and for some top class hotel brands too. There are very clearly do’s and don’ts. It’s very clear this place follows the donts! - as a hotelier, you should NEVER answer the door with ‘What do you want?’ Rude abrupt staff, dressed like they’ve walked through a bush. The decor outside is dreadful. Bright yellow paint screams problems inside...and dawm bloody right they do. To proclaim you wasn’t doing breakfast because of ‘Covid’. I admit it was just as we thought things was getting back to normal...but I’ve stayed in hotels elsewhere with smaller dining rooms than yours and they still managed. The bedroom doors are unsafe. If I had of stayed the wardrobe would of been against it for my own protection. I wouldn’t of want to have moved it knowing that behind it has probably never been cleaned. Having a family room with BARE WIRES showing, a loose bunk bed, dirty carpets, walls, windows...just everything was dirty and stunk vile of cigarettes. It’s a death trap. You should be closed down! You are not fit to operate a hotel and the worst thing about it is we paid up front £400 for 3 nights with booking.com and you haven’t even got the decency to refund it when we didn’t stay! That’s outrageously low and selfish! You should be disgusted. I was when I used your bedroom toilet and you couldn’t even provide toilet paper. I would NEVER recommend your hotel to anyone. Not even to someone I hate. You’ve dodged the Great Yarmouth tourist board and local councils investigation into my complaint and yet you still believe how your operating is suitable. Disgusting. DO NOT STAY. DO NOT BOOK.

No one answer door for long time had go looking for the staff. We ask for family room which we got but was told there was a travel cot, there wasn't. We were on 1sr floor so drag the pram up the stairs for our baby to sleep in. The room was dirty, hot and outdated. The ceiling fan was barely staying on. There was holes in the ceiling, walls are paper thin so was disturb most of night due to people in next room having tv on to early hours of morning. There was meant to be breakfast, got down at 8am for this, breakfast room locked up! Place stunk of cigarette and weed. We had walk through back to get to car and walk past where staff live and was hit with smell of weed. DON'T STAY HERE, THIS IS A HOTEL FROM HELL

To start when we arrived the man was rude to us at the front door. We then entered a Tatty room that stank of fags, we was left waiting there for at least 20 minutes. Finally we was told that they had double booked and that we would have to go down the road to another hotel that they had booked for us. Once we arrived we were told they did not agree to this and no booking had been made. After calling Fawlty towers back they then told us they had booked us an premier inn which was 10 minutes away. Once we arrived we was told they had not reserved a room and that we would have to pay for it. DO NOT BOOK THIS HOTEL, RUDE STAFF, DIRTY HOTEL AND AN OVERALL BAD EXPERIENCE. NEVER AGAIN !!!!

Worst experience ever. Do Not Book at any cost. The whole place stank of fags & weed! Rock burns on the bedding. Windows so Filthy you couldn't see out of, not to mention the filthy dirty piece of net curtain & the main curtains that were hanging on a thread that looked like they had been attacked & eaten by giant moths. The beds extremely tired & old, the carpet stuck to your feet as you walked bare footed. The furniture broken unfit for purpose. The T.V was waste of time, no signal constantly, same for WI FI, non existent! Ceiling looked like it was gonna give way. Fan looked like it was about to fall off the ceiling only 1 light in fixture, no light covering in Bathroom, & it looked like it should have been condemned! Pure & utter filth! As for the Fridge mentioned on the website ad, dont go there! It looked like it hadnt been cleaned for ever! The door surround was a shade of yellow & black, the stench of tobacco & filthy dirty. My friend & i booked for 3 nights & lasted only 2, thats because we couldnt bare staying here any longer. To boot were covered in flea bites! On leaving we met another guest who had booked for 1 night with wife & 2 small children, they also were covered in flea bites. GOD KNOWS HOW THIS BED BREAKFAST IS STILL UP & RUNNING, DO NOT WAST YOUR PRECIOUS TIME, ENERGY, OR MONEY BOOKING THIS B & B. TODAY I AM CONTACTING THE ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH.
