    Staff were excellent, great atmosphere. Entertainment was good. The number of return visitors present on our stay is a testimony to the running of the hotel. A high percentage of OAPs on our visit but not 1 moan about anything. Bar prices very good.

    Friendly welcoming staff, ready to help at all times. The hotel faced the sea and was only a short walk to the main attractions. Excellent breakfast served by the staff, something that is becoming more of a rarity nowadays. Well done.

    The room was not the largest but quite adequate. Just a minor point.

    We were greeted with a very welcome complimentary pot of coffee and home made cake. The staff were very friendly and exceptionally efficient; nothing was a problem to them. The breakfast was excellent and we decided to eat at The Kensington on our second night.... outstanding food. Thanks to all for a great stay, they even managed to arrange for the sun to shine the whole time we were there!!

    The staff and food were excellent, side room was very comfortable but still looked onto the sea which was lovely. The breakfast and afternoon tea was superb, made more enjoyable served by very cheerful, polite young staff which really makes a holiday. Coming out of the main entrance doors you are 10 seconds away from the beach, location of hotel was great as it was not too near the noisy end of Yarmouth with all the amusements. Nice little side carpark also provided. Room was spotless, tv / dvd player provided also access to the internet. We hope to return next year.

    Wish we could have had a week there, but alas 3 days was our limit, so coming home was the worst part.

    The staff made every effort to make our son feel special as it was his birthday with room decorations and a surprise card through the door and are very friendly. Would definitely go again if needed a hotel in the area. Thank you

    Superb

    My husband and I were attending a funeral not far from Great Yarmouth and this hotel suited our needs very well. The staff were so friendly and could not do enough to help us during our stay including keeping our room on later so we could change for the funeral after having been out for a long walk. Excellent evening bar meal.
