Rang to book after recommendation by work colleague since hotel accepts dogs. Called Friday afternoon (last minute effort) to try to accommodate 2 adults plus the dog and a 16 year old for the next night (Saturday) and was offered two rooms that were late cancellations. Didn't try to haggle, gave nominal deposit for both rooms and was booked in... More

We have just spent three nights at the hotel. We were in a standard room on the first floor, which overlooked the lawn. This was perfectly acceptable with a few minor issues, such as the old problem of stopping the shower over the bath dribbling onto the bathroom floor. We were welcomed with a cream tea, which was pleasant taken... More

My partner and I stayed on 21st August 2014 for one night and got off to a poor start by having dreadful traffic problems, leading to a prolonged journey. On arrival at the hotel however we were cheered enormously by the sight of the lovely hotel building and grounds. Our room was pleasing and our dog was made most welcome.... More

Booked The Dales for a one night stopover and totally delighted with our stay. Hotel is well appointed and comfortable with lots of nice touches. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Our ground floor room gave us good access to the large beautifully kept gardens. Breakfast was good with lots of choices. We will return and thank you for looking... More

My grown up family of four have recently returned from a holiday near Cromer and ate at The Dales Hotel on Friday 1 August. The setting is fantastic with extensive gardens, seating and king size games which we couldn't enjoy only because of the weather. The bar area is relaxed and comfortable. The menu was not too extensive (always an... More

This was our fourth visit to this hotel in eight years. A lovely building set in extensive grounds. Nice bar area and attractive dining room. The food is generally good, but service at breakfast can be unbelievably slow (we were in a large party and some of us waited for nearly an hour for our food to be served) Would... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback after your recent stay. We all love working at the Dales, it is such a fantastic setting and I couldn't agree more about the building. I'm really sorry to learn that you had to wait such a long time for your breakfast. You have my word that this is... More

We booked a late deal of £99.00 per night for two nights via the Dales website and were "upgraded" to a superior room. We were advised prior to arrival that the room, Barbestelle, was not in the main building but in the annexe with its own small terrace area outside. We were happy with this since we were in a...

Just had one of the best hotel stays we've ever experienced! The Dales had everything for a perfect restful break - a peaceful extensive garden setting adjacent to Sheringham Park (NT); friendly, courteous staff; a delicious 3-course Sunday lunch (eaten in the sunny garden) which was excellent value; a delightful ground floor bedroom with quality furniture and furnishings - comfy...

Great location but really not worth what we paid for the room. We were traveling with 2 dogs it's always difficult to find hotels. We returned to The Dales as a dog friendly hotel to find sadly the due care and attention missing. The bathroom in our room dark with missing light bulb, not replaced in 3 days, extractor not...
