Stayed at the Southern weekend 13-15th June. Beautiful hotel, spotlessly clean with plenty of charm and character, Owners are great, very friendly and welcoming. Sally is a great hostess with a wicked sense of humour, the breakfast is superb. On the whole a great place to stay and will recommend to friends and will be staying again.

We stayed at the Southern for 2 nights, the location of the hotel was very good, off the main drag but close enough to all of the amenities. The owners Sally and Tony were very friendly and the hotel itself internally was an elegant gem. The staircase is the main point of focus. We stayed in a family room which...

We booked The Southern Hotel, Great Yarmouth for an overnight stay. It is a great place to stay. It is only a very short walk from the sea-front, but very quiet and peaceful. The owner and staff were very friendly, welcoming and helful. The room was very clean, comfortable and tidy, and the breakfast was great. Will definitely recommend, and...

We spent 2 nights at the Southern Hotel and although all the rooms looked impeccable, we stayed in the 4 poster bedroom as a treat. It was a gorgeous room and completely spotless everywhere. The bed was very comfortable and the location made for a peaceful two nights sleep. Sally was the friendliest of hosts and made us feel so...

This is one of the best places to stay in Great Yarmouth in terms of location as it is only a 2 minute walk (if that) to the sea front as well as being in a quiet area. The two owners are very friendly and hard working and are happy to cater for any needs you have. In our case...

First time in Great Yarmouth and found the southern on Trip Advisor. It is perfectly situated for all amenities being only a five minuet walk from the front but also far enough out of it to be quiet and peaceful. Parking was great as we managed to get a space right outside the front of the hotel with additional off...
