“Absolutely flawless!”
Reviewed 17 October 2011

You just couldn't fault The Shrewsbury. Met with a pot of tea and a parking permit. The 4 poster suite was spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated & perfectly comfortable, with all possible amenities. Breakfast was (and I'm not kidding) cooked to absolute perfection. A wonderful find! We will definitely stay again and would recommend unreservedly to anyone.

Upon reception we were given fresh coffee after a long journey where also parking permits were given to us by hosts covering the period of our stay. The family room we had booked was excellent. Very clean and homely. Kids room very spacious and ideal they have seperate area. Range of breakfasts was expansive suiting everybodys needs, ranging from cereals, fresh juices and coffees to a highly recommended full english breakfast. Breakfast times also suit all needs from 8.00-9.30 at busy times. The hosts at The Shrewsbury were very approachable and friendly and more than willing to help guests in any way they can to accommadate. Will definatley be returning again. Loved it!!!

Myself and my son have just come back from a week stay here and can honestly say we were both sad to leave. The b&b is small but Tony and Sandie the owners have made it one of the nicest places i have stayed. Nothing is too much trouble for them both and i would recommend that any families visiting great yarmouth stay at the shrewsbury.

We just stayed here for 2 nights after getting married on the previous Friday. On arrival we pulled up to off load our luggage, and were straight away given our parking permit.

We were asked to fill in a registration form and Sandie explained about the keys and breakfast times. Sandie then showed us to our room which was the 4 Poster suite (our luggage had already been taken up to our room).

The suite was excellent, a small living room with a tv and a wall mounted fan, and tea and coffee making facilities. The living room and the suite were very well decorated and very comfortable. The four-poster bed was also VERY comfortable. There was ample storage (in the shape of a closet beside the en suite bathroom), which had ample hanging space (and hangers), a shoe rack and a large chest of draws. There was also a small wall mounted tv/dvd along with another wall-mounted fan. The bedside clock was also an I Pod docking station.

The ensuite was very well decorated and towels, shower gel, shampoo/conditioner were also provided, along with tissues, shoe cleaning kit and there was also a small glass container housing various cotton wool sundries.

Outside our door there was also an iron, ironing board and water for the steam iron.

Breakfast was excellent, with a good selection of fresh fruit, yoghurts, cereals, orange juice, full English breakfast, and various other selections like omelettes, pancakes etc. There was also a good selection of local handmade jams and marmalades that could also be purchased. There was also a selection of cold drinks, chocolates, biscuits and pringles on sale and Sandie and Tony relied on the honesty of the guest to put the money in a bowl.

The Shrewsbury was ideally situated for both the town and the sea front, both being only a short walk away. There was also no overnight noise, and not much during the day either.

All in all we cannot recommend this guesthouse highly enough. Both Sandie and Tony were excellent hosts, and not only made us feel VERY welcome, but also left a lovely box of chocolates for us as a congratulations on our marriage.

If you need somewhere to stay, I highly recommend you stay at the Shrewsbury. Clean, comfortable, very good value for money, and very clean accommodation, and extremely welcoming and friendly hosts.

We stayed at the Shrewsbury over the May bank holiday weekend and were very impressed with the high standard of quality and comfort. We stayed in the junior suite Room 4 which was very spacious even with the sofabed down, and was extremley well laid out. Nothing is too much trouble for Sandie and Tony, they are excellant hosts and the breakfast is cooked to perfection.
A excellant place to stay in a very central location. Look forward to another visit in the not too distant future.

Room Tip: Suites excellent for a family visit
