Thought the place was dirty, shabby and completely cluttered (dead flies and spiders in the bar/dining area, clothes & other assorted dusty items for sale all over the place, months of cobwebs and dust behind beside table, old toilet paper behind the toilet door & hair from previous occupant still evident in the shower!!).

It is true ..we do our bit for Charity ....but strange review bearing in mind that most other reviews mention how clean and pleasant it is here!! It should be remembered that we are a Country Inn not an up-market expensive town hotel therefore our mobile phone and free internet connection are not always what they are in towns. It... More

We stayed in the Great Danes one cold and windy night in late December and were delighted by our warm welcome, by the high standard of our bed and breakfast accommodation and by the care and friendliness of the owners. At first we found it a wee bit hard to find the hotel as the sign had recently been blown... More

We stayed at Great Danes Country Inn b&b, when we went to a wedding near Swaffham. The b&b is absolutely in the middle of nowhere. But, if you're looking for a quiet night and good sleep then this is definitely a right place for you. the room was good enough for the price we paid and had a comfortable bed.... More

We stayed for 6 nights as a family group of 3 middle-aged and 3 senior citizens and could not have been made more welcome. The location on the green with the lovely old Church was idyllic: peaceful and pretty and we were blessed with beautiful sunsets. It was a perfect place to start and end the day and a good... More

Stayed at this lovely small hotel on New Year's Eve 2013. I would highly recommend anyone staying in the surrounding areas in Norfolk including Swaffham to stay here. We only stayed for one night as we were visiting in Swaffham. Had a twin bed room, of which the beds were so comfortable. We had an evening meal here, again both... More

We were attending a wedding in Norfolk therefore booked two nights in The Great Danes Inn. Overall I would say that this place is clean and the beds are comfortable however I would not choose to stay here again. Firstly there is absolutely nothing to do surrounding it and the pub has zero atmosphere - we were the only customers... More
