Stayed for only one night in a classic double room. It was clean, comfortable and well appointed. Breakfast was a very comprehensive buffet. The staff were very polite efficient and approachable. All in all and very good nights stay.

Room was spotless, staff were very friendly. Didn't eat at hotel so can't comment on food. Would definitely stay again. Great location for town centre shops, pubs and museums etc. Onsite parking was also useful

This hotel is very good for Kings Lynn! The food was better than expected!! Very nice!! And the crazy French man was entertaining to watch! Haha! Only negative was I did over hear staff complaining a lot about the jobs they were doing, they sounded a bit understaffed but apart from that! The stay was very pleasant!

We have just returned from a two night stay and have to say that our room was beautiful, full of character, newly refurbished in great style and very clean, and the staff very helpful and polite. Just a couple of wee issues that need sorting...not enough loo paper, a non slip mat for the bath would be very welcome (both... More

The hotel is ideally located in the centre of the town. The facilities are good and the rooms were comfortable and clean. Only eat breakfast in the hotel so cannot rate the food very much. Breakfast was fine. Overall a good night's stay in a relatively quiet room and a decent hotel.

Plus points... Great location if you want the town in the day and the pubs in the evening. The entrance hall, the main old staircase, and the feature rooms are all very nice indeed, very attractive and obviously have a good load of history. Massive space to relax in the feature room we had, and the view over the square... More

We stayed here last year, and found the hotel to be amazing. Well managed, spotlessly clean with excellent food and reasonably priced drinks. The beds are amazing too, the only negative was that some maintenance issues were apparent. The Housekeeper Sue was brilliant always on duty morning, noon and night with always a smile on her face and helping out... More

Stayed 2 nights in order to visit the area. We booked what was described as a 'suite' which was supposed to have a sitting area with sofa, as well as bedroom. It didn't. In a slightly separate area it merely had another bed: not comfortable to sit on, and the only other seating was upright chairs. And this was for... More

This hotel is lovely downstairs but the bedrooms are a big disappointment. Our double bed was two singles zipped together which made for an uncomfortable nights sleep. The bathroom was filthy the extractor fan did not work and the water from the shower ran onto the bathroom floor. And to cap this there was no hot water in the morning!!!... More
