We were surprised that David Urquhart used this very shabby hotel, the breakfast was well cooked but served on tea plates! Dinner was awful, starter was a choice of orange juice? grapefruit? or soup which was made from a packet, dinner was frozen veg and packet cheese sauce over watery fish, obviously microwaved. We ate out on the other days.... More

We thought that the 2 star rated hotel would be basic, but the food was excellent, the location great and the owner Nick exceptionally friendly. We met others who had been to this hotel several times before, which says it all !!

Having booked a coach trip to the Norclife Hotel from the 8th to 11th August, because of the price our expectations didn't demand luxury, which was just as well. Plus point was the location which was absolutely lovely. . Rooms very rundown and shabby, beds appalling didn't even look clean. Breakfast or FULL ENGLISH as stated on menu consisted of... More

We arrived at the Norcliffe at 3.10pm on Friday, we were promptly ushered away and told not to return before 4pm. On our return at 4pm the coach trip had arrived resulting in a chaotic check-in as you had to order your evening meal at this time. The lift only goes to the 1st floor which seemed to be a... More

on arrival we were greeted by the owner who made us very welcome, but disappointed to find there was no hotel porters and we had to handle our own luggage, and as this hotel has three levels and the lift only goes to the first level it was not very convenient, other than that food was good and the service...
