I know I have written quite a few reviews, and may have said this before, but this hotel is near enough perfect. It is located in serene countryside close to Oulton Broad. The rooms are so comfy; the bed gave me the best night sleep in a long time, which was wonderful. The staff were so friendly and gave us... More

First class facilities however managing staff could have looked more presentable. Obviously aiming for a high standard however the suit of the manager could use a dry clean. Starters were lovely and filling - homemade bread was a lovely touch. Main course of roast beef was nice, but the vegetables were not timed to arrive altogether. Some serving choices seemed... More

We used to stay at this place years ago, but it was always a bit prissy, and over time it got a bit tatty. Having to stay in town again, we were pleased to see it had hanged hands. The location was always good, and now the rooms have been refurbished and the staff have been equipped with 20th century... More

The title says it all really. Don't be put off by the dusty approach road. Location and atmosphere really very good. The Sunday lunch represented excellent value for money, wasn't piled high but the quality was there. Horseradish had a real kick which spiced up the sirloin which comes as 'medium' - no choice if you want it 'pink'. Staff... More

The grounds are very nice and it is great to have breakfast in the... More

Invited out for a special dinner. Food choices very good but no consideration for gluten free guest. There seemed a certain lack of flexibility with the menus e.g. bar food of steak and salad not allowed in the restaurant, waitress clearly wasn't interested in my friend telling her she wanted to cut back on the carbs. Food was delicious and... More

It was a perfect weekend for our anniversary. There is plenty of land to walk on but if you want to stretch your legs there is a well used public... More

We have visited this hotel several times in the past, celebrated our 40th Wedding Anniversay there four years ago and had a superb meal. The hotel is now under new management and has had a fabulous refurbishment and new building work. It's wonderful. On Saturday we had a lovely cream tea with our friends in the new Eve's bar. We...

Just had a wonderful lunch and afternoon in the new Eve's Bar. The location is wonderful with beautiful scenery, so peaceful and tranquil. Eve's Bar is very light, airy, clean and comfortable. The choice of food is great and very tasty, all staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. Couldn't fault it and will definitely be returning.
