Simple room, simple staff, simple decor, clean bed which is mostly all I care about. Saw a slight part of the sea from room which was lucky as had a side room, good TV and kettle. Simple and did the job, on the seafront, can't complain but wouldn't visit again

Once you get passed the idea the Sandcliff is a B&B and not a hotel, you are in for a lovely surprise. First of all, the hotel was brilliantly clean. Fresh smelling bed linen, two pillows each. The bathroom had none of that musty smell you can get with old period hotels. Nice soft towels and well stocked coffee and... More

I would describe the hotel as a traditional English b&b, with the style and layout you would expect from a seaside town. The staff (receptionist and breakfast room) were very friendly and chatty. The room was booked last minute but we were lucky to receive a large room with 3 beds and an ensuite with shower. Parking is either on... More

Stayed one night at the Sandcliff Hotel, excellent value for the money, clean, tidy, & friendly what is all you want. Breakfast was very good especially the fresh fruit salad, the best I have had. Would recommend it. Paul & Pat Stowmarket

Had a lovely few days at the Sandcliff Hotel, Friendly, smiling staff welcomed us on our arrival. There was a wonderful full English breakfast that kept us going until tea time..with a superb fresh fruit salad yoghurt, and cereals also available. The hotel is a short walk from the centre of Cromer which has at least one excellent fish and... More

A lovely welcome awaits. The hotel is a 3 star and is excellent value for money. The breakfast was great - the fresh fruit salad was spot on, and one of the best I've had anywhere. It's an ideal location, we had never been to Cromer before, but will be coming back. The down points? Well, not much. The pull... More

I recommend booking through the hotel, not through a booking agency. You can speak to a real friendly human being, the rate will be the same and you can be sure what room you are getting. (All rooms are different in this old hotel, and some people have complained that they didn't know they had a shared/private bathroom, back view... More

The Sandcliff Hotel is situated a few minutes walk from the town centre and from the beach and pier. (We were also able to walk to Sheringham from here! Though did get the bus back!) There are parking spaces attached to the hotel but free parking is available across the road and on the side streets. A friendly welcome awaited... More
