I have just arrived home from my first visit to The Gables and cannot wait to return. Firstly the location is ideal for exploring North Norfolk and is within walking distance of the beach and the centre of Hunstanton. Our room was spotless and everything you would require for a perfect weekend break. The breakfast was fantastic with a great... More

This was my first time staying at The Gables, having stayed elsewhere in Hunstanton & Heacham on many occasions & assuming there's availability will definitely stay here again.

100 yards from the sea. One block from High street. Excellent breakfasts. Richard was a very helpful host and provided ideas for a full two day tour. Clean and well kept. We had a small room with balcony at the front. The bathroom was tiny with a bath and hand held shower wand. The toilet stopped working intermittently. The double... More
