I recall that Screaming Lord Sutch, founder of The Monster Raving Loony Party, sang with his band The Savages at the Goodes Hotel in the early 60s.

My wife Patricia and I spent our honeymoon in the hotel in August 1963 and would have loved to go back again to celebrate our 50th anniversary. We still have the original bill for three nights B & B £8-14-1.

I recognize this Hotel .. somewhere near here was Joe's Oyster Bar. I worked there in the 60's. Anyone know exactly where it was - it's not there now. Keith Woods,

I met my wife whilst working as a potman in 1967 at the Goodes Hotel.

Yvonne was on holiday with her friends from Leicester and it was love at first sight.

People told us that holiday romances don't last, well this one has, 51 years on and we are still married.

Happy memories happy days.

As a schoolboy I had a summer job in early 1950s in the kitchen alongside my mother and aunt who worked in the dining room. I did the job for a couple of seasons until we moved to Gorleston but as an adult returned on several occasions as a customer. Very pleasant memories.

It’s still there hidden behind Caesar’s Palace, just look up to see the upper storeys.
