My Wife, aged 83 & disabled and I aged 92, were lucky enough to get a ten day booking, when we were exiled during a family removal. We could not have been more fortunate, the service was beyond anything we have experienced elsewhere, and the place itself was beautiful and totally unconventional. The woods, the lake and the walk round... More

Where do I start? Everything about Greenbanks exuded welcome, charm, care and personal touch. Right from walking through the door, to the beautifully decorated bedrooms, set in the most fabulous woodland grounds. Walking outside around the lakes was a perfect 'getting away from it all' experience and the friendly and warm attention of Julie, Alex and Jess made us feel... More

What an interesting place to stay for one night on an annual trip from London to north Norfolk! The owners, Julia and Alex are warm and hospitable, neither corporate nor unctuous, and their family-run hotel has an attractive quirkiness about it that marks it out from other places. Dinner was good, desserts divine and beautifully presented.. The ‘full English breakfast’... More

Staying here in the "Barn" accommodation, and can't praise it highly enough. Being the user of a larger than normal wheelchair, I often find that hotels purporting to be accessible are in fact far from it. At Greenbanks however, I was delighted to find every single doorway was easy to manoeuvre, the wet room shower was a delight to use,... More

When phoning up to book our room, I was offered several options to pick. I told Julie exactly what we were looking for and why and she then detailed what she had on offer and I then decided what to book. She was very patient, and she happily answered all my questions. On the day of our arrival Julie phoned... More

Went with a large family group for a special meal. Had pre-ordered - all courses were served together for the whole group. Food was lovely over whole range of dishes. Service was excellent. No hesitation in recommending.

I had my little boys christening reception here. The food was great, the chocolate brownies and fruit cheesecake were to die for! The staff catered to our every need and were soo friendly. We will definitely be back for more great food!

On arriving to the hotel I thought that maybe I had made the wrong choice. The warm welcome on arrival soon took care of that. They had taken note of my comment on booking that I would be working in my room and had allocated a room that they knew had good wifi reception and a desk to work from... More
