What people are saying about Bon-Ami Guest House

perfect pick for a quick night - Rating 5/5

We were spending the night at Lowestoft while on a motorcycle long weekend drive. We picked the bon-ami because it had late check-in hours suitable to our arrival. When we arrived with two motorcycles we asked if they recommend better parking than the street Infront. The kind couple opened the rear property gates for us and allowed us to park the bikes inside the fenced area next to their own car. What a difference it makes for us knowing the bikes are off the streets and safe! We appreciate the gesture greatly. As for the rooms, they were perfect for what we wanted. Twin bedroom with enough space to put the gear away. Bathroom is small but functional. Most important everything was super clean and tidy. Extremely nice senior couples running the property. Totally recommended.

A very pleasant stay - Rating 5/5

My fiancé and I stayed at Bon Ami for 2 nights. The owners Julie and Barry are very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and well equipped. We had a view of the sea as well which was great. Breakfast was delicious. It's literally a 30 second walk to the gorgeous sandy beach and a 2 minute walk to the nearest pier. For the price we paid we can't fault the place. We would definitely stay there again.

Jim and Jessica - Rating 5/5

We very much enjoyed our stay. We had a very warm welcome from Julie and Barry. The bedroom was clean, comfortable and spacious with a stunning view out to sea. Breakfast was excellent - very generous, delicious and hot! One small suggestion - a shelf on the wall in the ensuite would have been helpful to place toiletries on. We would recommend anyone to stay here.
