From the receptionist who welcomed us and showed us to our rooms, to the cleaners, everyone was friendly here. The building is an old one and so the rooms are not the largest and have squeaky boards, etc. However, it was a good stay. Our room overlooked the mill pond and the main road. However, even with only a single... More

This hotel could be a gold mine but it is sadly lacking in many areas! A visit from TV's Hotel Inspector might shock them into improving things. It is in a great spot for touring North Norfolk but the couples we spoke to were not impressed. Reception was poor, the public areas smelly and in need of decoration, food unimpressive... More

I was booked this hotel by work. I wouldn't recommend it unless your looking for basic. The corridor and rooms smell of damp and sweaty body odur, the rooms are dark and dreary, in much need of updating, and a thorough clean. There are other hotels a short drive away that are more shall i say comfortable.

No telephone, TV did not work (although receptionist fixed by total reprogramming). No remote control, room clock defective could not set morning alarm. Wanted a double bed room but given twin beds room.... More

A very pleasant evening meal was had. Staff very thoughtful and as it was a very warm evening sat us by open French window overlooking the garden. A slight... More

Staff friendly and helpful. Room clean and tidy. Food very variable. Breakfast satisfactory but minimal if you want continental style. Evening meal (only one taken) presented good whitebait but the following steak was poor. It seemed to have been slow cooked so was pale and not tender although it was medium rare as requested. But it was served on bed... More
