About us & our Location
Welcome to our Restaurant & Hotel in Great Yarmouth
Alongside my husband Phil, my Dad (a retired fighter pilot) and Mum, we began our adventure at Andover House in 2006. This is our story so far...
Phil and I met in Norwich whilst working for a company that creates live brand experiences. Our work with some of the clientele gave us an insight into the world of hospitality. Andover House presented the opportunity for us to combine and share our skills to create a special hotel experience in Great Yarmouth.
Built in mid 1800's, this striking building stands central on a beautiful tree lined avenue close to the sandy beach. When we took it over in 2006, our main aim was to sympathetically revive the entire building and focus on the Victorian features whilst adding our own contemporary style.
Continual improvements have followed over the years with the completion of more guest rooms in August 2016.
We have searched high and low to gather our small team who share in our passion for exceptional service. We couldn't do this without them so together, we aim to constantly deliver a warm welcome to all who walk through our doors.
We hope to see you very soon, Victoria
Jump in the car...
There are plenty of opportunities to travel around the area. You can bring your car with you to stay in Great Yarmouth, as our hotel offers free parking. The City of Norwich has plenty of fantastic shops. We love the cobbled street of Elm Hill, Norwich Castle and the Cathedral is stunning inside. Blickling Hall, a stately home with gardens. We recommend the walk around the lake and taking a picnic blanket for croquet on the lawn.
Wroxham, hub of the Broads from where you can hire a boat for the day, eat fish & chips, shop and feed the ducks any left overs! Fairhaven Woodland and Water Gardens, a unique garden rich in wildlife with a network of dyke systems and private broad.
Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens is a fantastic zoo, one we have been back to a few times. Sheringham Park, a favourite of ours... a fabulous display of rhododendrons and azaleas from Spring. Find the gazebo viewing towers with fantastic coastal vistas and miles of scenic countryside paths.
