I was expecting a lot from this hotel, as it sounds rather fine. The reception area and some of the communal areas were rather impressive, but the room I stayed in (101) wasn't up to the standard I have been used to at other places I have stayed in recently, which were ordinary lesser rated hotels. Was rather plain and... More

We booked to come to Lynford Hall to stay as we had heard about its connections with Allo Allo and were interested in coming to see it. We drove up in snow and was welcomed by the very friendly receptionist. The bedroom in the extension was clean and tidy and had everything you could of wanted. Meals We had breakfast... More

Dear Clarky 4910, Thank you for your recent review on Trip Advisor. I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. The hotel does indeed share a unique connection with "Allo Allo" as our courtyard was used as the setting for the town square and the exterior of "Café Rene" Other areas such as the archways and the main...

We took my Mum for High tea as a treat on Saturday. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The tea was superb, beautifully presented and the best chocolate cake I have had in a long time. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We will definately go back and try the restruant. Many thanks Lynford Hall for making Mums... More

This was my first visit to Lynford Hall and was immediately impressed with this stately hotel. The entrance lobby/reception gives you an insight to the splendour that the hotel wishes to portray. It does surprise me, that when the hotel does not have many guests, you are not offered an upgrade. Instead people are put in the stable block/servants quarters... More

Dear Teejayh, Thank you for recent review on Trip Advisor, I have noted the points that you have raised and apologise for the fact that you were not offered an upgrade to one of our superior rooms. To my knowledge we are not listed anywhere as a four star property, I would say we are a good three star hotel... More

A real treasure. Staff were friendly and helpful, food was great (best meal in ages!). Very quiet unless there's a wedding going on I would imagine. Great location in thetford forest, just walk out of the drive! Perhaps lacking a bit of character and a bit too quiet on a winter midweek stay. Maybe better if one of the open... More

A delightful Victorian pile off the beaten track. My wife and I stayed there for a Valentine weekend. We chose it because we are 'allo 'allo fans and some of the outdoor scenes were shot in the outer courtyard. It was apparent that the exterior of the building needs some TLC and the condition of the lobby doors doesn't create... More

we went here for my father-in-laws birthday. It is an amazing building in a wonderful setting - country walks from the grounds and a lovely arboretum adjacent to it. It also has its own delightful terrace and formal gardens. The dining room is a magnificent room, beautifully decorated very high ceiling and pictures of former prime ministers on the walls....

We recently stayed at the hotel for an event. The main building is beautiful and appears well maintained. The gardens are gorgeous and we loved the location.
