“Who needs to stay in a Boutique hotel?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

This is truly a gem! It's hard to fault this B&B; the room decor is right up there with anything we've encountered, the hospitality outstanding, and the peaceful location close to perfect, and all for less than half what you'd pay in a Boutique hotel. If only I'd been brave enough to try the natural swimming pool!

When we heard you up earlier than expected, we were sure you were getting ready for a swim!! You were fabulous guests and it was wonderful to talk to you about your B&B plans in Dorset. We wish you all the best - you'll be wonderful hosts and hopefully we'll come and stay with you in the future!

Without doubt the best level of bed and breakfast accommodation AND personal service that we have ever experienced in the UK. Generous, congenial and engaging hosts who are setting the highest possible standard of hospitality that others should aspire to. First class.

We stayed for 5 nights at Longview and everything was excellent, Pat & Bill were great hosts and made us feel very welcome in their home. Breakfasts were fantastic as well and tea delivered to our room at a time of our choice was also a nice touch.

We have just returned from a five day stay at this wonderful B & B. Pat and Bill made us feel very welcome in their beautiful home. Nothing was to much trouble and their hospitality was second to none. We will certainly return for another enjoyable stay.
The room we had was immaculate with our own on-suite, plenty of clean towels etc.
Pat`s breakfast was perfect and we were given lots of variety, she is a great cook, especially, her cakes and biscuits.
The outside area was so peaceful and relaxing with stunning views.
Thanks again Pat and Bill.
We will be back soon.

I had promised Pat and Bill we would return and so I kept my word! It was like visiting with old friends, albeit ones who bring you tea and cake!

Booking was very easy as Pat remembered us and our preferences. She even managed to arrange for a surprise for my husband; bottle of wine chilling in our room, two wine glasses and a box of homemade truffles on the house. We took Room 1 again, and just as before it was spotless, luxurious comfort. We had a lovely sleep, and I had to ask Pat again where the linens were from because I must have them. As we stayed during a bit of an unseasonal heat wave, we took full advantage of the natural swimming pond on our first evening. We borrowed the lilos and had a lovely float around while finishing off the wine. Heaven.

It was so nice to come back from our visits to Holkham Hall, Holt and the beach at Wells (with the heat drawing the crowds) to the quiet calm of Longview. We saw a lot more of the village, browsed the Chocolate Deli, and visited the Shrine finally. The evening was spent "down the pub" and a pleasant, warm walk back to the peace of the B&B.

The stay once again surpassed all expectations, and the bar had been set pretty high thanks to our previous visit. The breakfasts were simply divine and (dare I say it?) even better than last time.

I believe this may become an annual trip for us, as the value is absolutely unbeatable and the hospitality second-to-none.

We spent one night at Longview B&B, what a find, a beautiful restful place made more special by the welcome from Pat and Bill. Pat provided a welcoming cuppa with a wonderful mini Victoria sponge cake, which we had in their lovely peaceful garden, sat by the pool. The room was immaculate with soft towels and toiletries and the bed was really comfortable. We were lucky enough to have Pat's wonderful breakfast outside by the pool, a real treat. Pat and Bill do welcome you into their home and make you feel like friends rather than B&B guests. Keep up the painting Bill!!

I was genuinely sad to leave Longview this morning after a very restful couple of nights with my boyfriend. I think Pat and Bill have struck the perfect balance with their B&B - we really enjoyed chatting over Pat's stonking breakfasts but equally appreciated the privacy we had. It was my first time in Norfolk and feel very lucky to have experienced such a beautiful place...if you're in need of tranquility, just spend a few minutes in Bill and Pat's garden! Culinary highlights included French toast, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs and the SCRUMMY cakes Pat gave us as we left.

We're so pleased that your very first visit to North Norfolk was to Longview and that you had a wonderful, relaxing time. Glad you enjoyed the food too! ps I'm sure you could squeeze a little wildflower meadow into a corner of your garden!
