    Crappy sea princess

    On arrival the man behind the perspect desk was extremely rude. “Just because you’ve requested a sea view room don’t mean you’re getting one” was the quote on arrival. Although booked 4 months in advance was sent to the top of building to a box room which reeked of paint and had spillages of paint all over the floor. I complained as my wife has asthma he reluctantly gave us another room. Ok we agreed we’d crack on with that. At 5:40 the next morning was woken to our tv blaring at volume no.84 as though the alarm had been set. Went to breakfast at 8:30 very basic and staff look terrified of making a mistake. Went up to catch up on some well needed sleep but was awoken to water dripping on my head. I woke my wife up who then needed the loo, once she flushed it the flush then flew out the back of the toilet. I went down to complain to which the man said what do you expect me to do? It’s not my problem!!!!! An argument ensued then he told me to leave his “hotel” and I won’t be getting money back. I rang the police and he refunded me for the next night. DO NOT STAY HERE YOU WILL BE LET DIWN AND MASSIVELY RIPPED OFF!!!!! It is worn down and if you want a decent stay in Yarmouth give the SEA PRINCESS a wide birth. James

  • 4.0.Fair

    Had to be moved from initial room due to water coming through the ceiling! At 1pm someone who had booked a room was banging on the door and shouting waking up the entire hotel. Hotel is old and has had a renovation attempt but to a very poor standard, just a lick of paint and tacky cheap decoration. My first room looked reasonably nicely decorated, second room (after being moved) was cramped and very poorly finished with furniture that looked like it had been taken from a skip! I wasn't expecting The Ritz, especially at the reduced rate I paid as a front-line worker during lock down but I at least expected a dry room and to be able to get some sleep!

    Room 6

    The lock on the door was not secure and didnt have a snack on the yale lock so anyone with a key that fitted the lock could of enterd while we were sleeping... The floor was very uneven and possible holes in the floor,very loose floor boards... some of the wallpaper was coming away from the wall... the windows were dirty on the inside.... The drinking glasses provided had not been cleaned properly (all dirty smears all over them) tiles in the shower were cracked... The shower head leaked water down the pipeline we had to place a towel on the floor to soak up the water ... The waste bin hadnt been emptied in the bathroom before we got there... Bathroom door handle loose untill i screwed it back on..... The staff were very curious and pleasent though

    Hotel shabby, smelt dank & musty, stale, we are 4 golfers each with a room, we were put into annexe building next door, sticky dirty carpets throughout, all 4 rooms disgusting, one stank terribly of fish, mould on walls, bedding damp, another room had an actual lump of poo floating in it 2 other rooms basically dirty, straight down to reception & handed keys back, told them their hotel was disgusting & not fit for purpose & asked for full refund, told to take it up with Expedia, spent 20 mins online writing complaint to chat service only to find I was talking to an automated computer, asked Expedia to phone me back - heard Nothing from them, this Hotel needs exposing to National Press & how on earth anyone in their right mind at Expedia can recommend it is beyond belief !

    Stay away

    The hotel was not very clean nor was the owner very polite unless you was a male guest. He was very off handed with myself. There was no shower curtain for two days, I was told to wash in sink. I would definitely not stay again. The breakfast was very nice, staff serving breakfast were friendly and polite.

    hotel from hell

    Didn’t stay the place was Very dirty smelly run down poor condition throughout. The pictures on website where not a true reflection of property. Holes in wall that where bodged, light fixtures where not fixed in bathroom. Bathroom was the worst ever seen in a hotel Mould in built in wardrobe health hazard Booked double room but got offered a small double that looked like a 3/4 bed that was pushed against the wall head board was a radiator.
