"Sue,landlady, friendly, helpful and cheerful, single rooms are small but clean, if you can't close the window it's because you are standing to close to it and you can't see the little button on the handle! Don't be put off by the stairs carpet,it could do with replacing! Breakfast not large but adequate and not greasy, when paying the bill for 2 nights there was no charge for the dog, when I pointed this out was told by Sue "oh I didn't charge for the dog" thanks Sue,PARKING, is free if you walk 60 seconds up the road to the traffic lights turn left towards sainsburys, its on street but I had no problems! NOW if you're a snooty moaning type go and stay somewhere else, this is cheap and cheerful! "

"I would highly recommend the seashells guest house as the place to stay, smoker friendly, and caters to your canines as well. Sue (the owner) well what can I say, her laughter fills every room, nothing is too much trouble for her, and the breakfast is excellent, her bacon sarnies are to die for, I personally cant eat a full english but trust me if you eat one of sues breakfasts its would see you right through till dinner. The room was lovely like home from home with a sofa, fridge, tv and dvd player and a lovely ensuite shower and toilet. We would definately be going back to seashells sue tells me she is open all year round except christmas (sues break) which she most certainly deserves, thanks again sue for making our stay such a wonderful experience, one which we are not likely to forget in a long time. xx sue and pete atkins "

A very pleasant surprise!!
"I stayed at this very pretty guest house on 5th October 2011 while on a business trip. When I booked, I was slightly put off by the fact that it was a dog and smoker friendly establishment. But I was pleasantly surprised that there were no doggy or cigarette smells at all. Everywhere was very clean and tidy, and my room was very well prepared. I was looked after very well by the very friendly and helpful Lady of the house, and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for her. Although I had to leave too early to enjoy a full breakfast, a rack full of toast was quickly prepared for me so that I did not depart on an empty stomach. This is what bed and breakfast accommodation is all about. Inexpensive, comfortable stays in clean rooms. Very well done. A credit to the industry."

"Me and my partner have just got back from staying at the seashells guess house for 2nights, we stayed in the poppy room it was a fantasic, very clean, loads of tea and coffee. Its so close to the beach and shopping centre as well. Sue is a really nice lady really made us feel welcome and also there was a young girl helping out for breakfast times we didn't catch her name but she was so polite and really helpful. I would recommend this guest house to anyone. Hoping to go back soon myself."

Felt like home
"My fiance and I stayed here for a week and was absolutely delighted with everything. The friendly welcome from the owner Sue ( such a lovely lady reminded me of my mum ). The room we had was very very clean and with modern decor. Spacious and well maintained. Loads of free tea and coffee, hot water for showers all day long, unlike some places. The breakfast in the morning will do you for the day, with loads of choice and Sue will even do you something that is not on the menu. I cannot rave about this place enough. The staff are friendly, the two doggies even do tricks to entertain you !!!!!
We will definately be going back and ive even recommended it to my mum and dad who are great yarmouth fans.
If your thinking of going to Great Yarmouth you MUST stay at the Seashells you will not have a more comfortable, enjoyable stay.
Hope to see you soon. Many thanks
All our love Michelle and Brian, LONDON"

"We stayed at Seashells Guest House last weekend, we was so warmly welcomed when we arrived and through out our whole stay. Sue and Pete were always glad to have a friendly chat with us and any of their guests. They were always there to give advice on places to go and just have general chat. They are fantastic hosts and i would definatly return to Great Yarmouth to stay at their Guest House."

Seashell's guest house is situated at 57...
"Seashell's guest house is situated at 57 Nelson Road North in Great Yarmouth, which is a long road situated one street back from the seafront.
The Guest house is within walking distance of the train station (about 15 minutes). The main shopping area of the town is located at the end of the 'north' bit of the road. So it is perfectly situated for just about everything.
Upon arrival you'll be greeted by Sue, Pete and Jamie â and if you're lucky one of the two family pet dogs! Walking through the door the immediate impressions are good, a quick peek into the breakfast dining room indicates the cleanliness carries throughout the establishment.
As it is some years since I stayed in a B & B I am wondering exactly what standard of bedroom we might have â I needn't have worried.
We were shown to our bedroom which again upon first impressions were impressive! Our room not only had a colour TV but a DVD player and free view box. There are tea and coffee making facilities in each room and you also get biscuits and chocolates too.
The beds are LARGE â I think they may be two singles pushed together, but they are comfortable and well presented. At the end of the bed is our en-suite facilities which again are clean and well supplied.
The nautical theme runs throughout the house and everywhere is clean and tidy, with plenty of information about local attractions our stay was a very happy one, and one which we didn't want to end.
Breakfast is served between 8 and 9.30am each day and consists of what you might expect cereal, cooked breakfast, and toast. And although the breakfast is nothing from the ordinary it was fresh and hot â which is better than many more expensive hotels I have stayed in.
What did I like and not like about our stay: My only real complaint would be the stairs they are certainly not for the faint hearted and although I found the first lot manageable the second lot (where the rest of our party stayed) was near impossible for me.
Apart from that everything was fine and complaint free. What I liked about staying in this guest house was the willingness to accommodate our needs (such as cooking different breakfasts, holding our cases until we left the town, and generally making us welcome).
The accommodation is clean and comfortable and the breakfast fresh and hot. Another nice spot for me was meeting the two family dogs (being a dog lover) although they are kept away from the guests as a rule â but being a dog lover I couldn't resist.
If you are going to Great Yarmouth and fully able bodied then I would highly recommend this guest house, however for those whose mobility is limited it would prove a problem. We paid Â£22 per person per night for our stay, which is a fraction of what we could have expected to pay in a hotel."
