The rooms left a lot to be desired no comfort here, the shower was something else poor cleaning combined with low water pressure made it a nightmare. A poor standared of cleaning all round. Half of the lighting did not work.Although this place is pet friendly I dont expect to share the dining area with them.

Having heard a lot about The Old Coach House, we were looking forward to a family meal after walking the dog. Friends had told us about the excellent fish & chips and pies but, we very disappointed to find that the menu had changed to only offer pizza & pasta. What a let down, the choice was very poor and...

New coats of paint, new garden but still the same good friendly service with excellent breakfast choice and good dinner menu. Oh, and the draft... More

Lovely to see the old name back over the door, the staff are so friendly and are truly a asset to the place. Never get rid of the Wherry, got to be one of the best pints in Norfolk. As one famous General once said "I will return"

We stayed here as it was the only place we could find that would take a one night weekend booking and we couldn't spare two nights. It was only £69 - the room was very basic but the bed comfy. The breakfast was good. The staff were all friendly and efficient.

Booked on a Groupon deal £89or £99 dinner +B&B and have to say it was well worth the money. Yes, the rooms are pretty poor, but you get what you pay for! Beds are hard, rooms very tired and bathrooms dated but didn't spend much time in it. We found the food in the evening very good-mushroom wrapped in pancetta... More

My wife and I visited Thornham for a mini break. The Coach house is under the Pierre Marco White umbrella, and did not disappoint us in any way. Our room was comfortable and located on the ground floor. For us this was quite convenience and we had easy access to the car park which was ample. Large bed, wonderful heating... More

We were very disappointed with this hotel. Stayed in rm 8 which was absolutely tiny, bed hard, no remote for tv, dirty lamp and light switches,... More

Stayed for two nights..lovely pub food good and staff were very friendly. We have two dogs so it was ideal as they can stay in the rooms. Our thoughts were that the rooms seem a little tired. The bathroom was well in need of an upgrade.wooden floors would give a more contemporary feel and there was no comfy chairs either... More

Excellent value with a Groupon deal, 2 nights b&b with 3 course meal on one night and a glass of champagne. Pleasant, efficient staff. Very good breakfasts and excellent dinner though I think I will give a scallops starter a miss in future! Our room was rather small, room 12 in the 'outhouse' and alongside the road though traffic noise... More
