Only four other hotels in the town have a three star hotel rating from either the AA or VisitBritain's Quality in Tourism and none has a merit score higher than the Prom's 75pc. The score indicates the level of quality achieved within the star rating.

“We couldn't be more pleased,” said Ian Scott, who owns and operates The Prom Hotel, and the Pier Hotel, Gorleston, with his father Rodney. “We have invested a great deal of money transforming the adjacent Lincoln and Sandringham hotels into The Prom, providing our guests with modern, high-specification accommodation.”

Kirsty Burn, Great Yarmouth Tourism's marketing and promotions manager, said, “This is really good news for the town. Investment in good quality accommodation is vital to the future success of Great Yarmouth as a holiday destination and it's great to see the hard work and commitment that has gone into upgrading The Prom Hotel reflected in the awarding of three stars by the AA. It's a really significant achievement.”

The Prom Hotel on Marine Parade has 23 en suite bedrooms and is linked to the popular Pub on the Prom.
