“5 star stay in Norfolk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Stayed here for the weekend. Amazing place, pure luxury. Every need catered for. From children to adults. A whole array of things to keep you occupied. The house is finished to the highest standard with the most up-date fittings including B&O systems. Felt like a 5 star hotel. Will most definitely re book later in the year. Did not need to go out exploring the local are, the house itself was enough. Pure heaven.

“Just Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

When we decided as a family to go away for a Christmas Break that would cater for the various age groups in our party we decided to have a look at Trip Advisor. We searched high and low and could not find something that "ticked all the boxes".
We came across Hill House Norfolk and when we checked the availability we were delighted that it was free! The Party had just begun!!
When we arrived at the house we really could not believe that it was fitted out better than it was actually described on the Website. From the Cutlery in the Kitchen to the Towels in the Bathrooms the quality was exceptional and there was more than enough to go around. All of the rooms in the house were spotless and we arranged a food delivery in advance of our visit. When we arrived everything was put in the cupboards and it was just as if we had arrived at our own home. The house has two fantastic Lounges one of which has a fantastic open fire which was very welcome over the wet and windy Xmas week, the other has a wood burner. We had 2 dogs with us and even they had their own room and that too was stocked with goodies to distract them while we partied away!!
Overall we would highly recommend this gem of a house in Norfolk and we will certainly be going back.

“Marvellous place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We went for my husbands 50th and we went with friends and small children from 10 months to teenagers and everyone had an absolutely excellent time. The dogs had their own room with beds and towels provided and also scrummy treats.

Rooms were superb and everything was excellent from the fish and chips to the Saturday night dinner to the pizza lunch. It is the best place to stay for all ages and in hindsight it was good not to have a pool on site with young children. We ourselves didn't use Dunston hall but our friends did and said it was great. Understandably you can't turn up job handed and only six can go at a time but if done swim and some are playing golf it should work out well.
Banhsm zoo was only thirty minutes away.

Can't recommend this place enough. From your shopping unpacked to the lovely team who work with hill house we would like to thank one and all xxx

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us. It's great to hear you had a great time. I will also follow up with Dunston Hall as Hill House has access for everyone as long as there is space in the pool. (that's why we ask you to ring up in advance). Have a great 2014. Darren

“Even better than the reviews !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Took the family away to this amazing property for my wife's 50th !
16 very happy people left Hill House yesterday with huge smiles on their faces.
It is all well documented on TA..Everything as stated..no exaggerated reviews..money well spent .
Attention to detail immense..liason with Darren a pleasure..could have done with a few more days but we are now counting the pennies to invest in a Christmas/New Year break 14/15.
We will be back.

“Totally Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Our family party numbered 17 aged between 3 - 75. Hill House was perfect for our family to gather together to celebrate Henry's 75th birthday. The house is interestingly decorated with a mixture of traditional furniture and interesting edgy art, comfortable and spacious with plenty of room for everyone to spread out. The games room was a huge success for all ages! Darren has thought of everything to make the stay very comfortable with an attention to detail that was superb, down to providing spare batteries for the children's guitar - So no wailing frustrated young musicians! We booked Bespoke who cooked and served delicious canapés and dinner for our main celebration. Canapés and cocktails were served in the drawing room where Darren set up a disco vibe for us, together with karaoke microphones, which was enormous fun. We were introduced to geocaching by a member of the party, this was possible along the Boudica Way, a brilliant way to get fresh air and learn about local history. Along the way we stumbled upon a beautiful ruined church hidden in the woods, magic!

“A wonderful family celebration in luxurious surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We enjoyed a wonderful week to celebrate my birthday with my family and grandchildren. The layout of the large house and extensive grounds made it just perfect for our purposes and ensured that there was plenty space to ensure privacy and then formal and informal gatherings as required. Outside caterers can be arranged to add more glamour. The beautiful grounds and house make a luxurious and tranquil setting.
We were all delighted beyond our expectations and look forward to another holiday there in the future.

“This place will blow you away, absolutely perfect in every way!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We have just returned from a weekend at Hill House to celebrate my partners 40th birthday. We wanted something a bit special to mark the occasion and chose Hill House as it seemed to fit the bill. Well it was utterly perfect in every way. We had a few small children in our group and there was so much to keep them entertained and it was very child friendly, but at the same it didn't feel like a kids playground and was great for adults too with the games room, cinema room and very sophisticated dining room. Darren the owner could not have been more helpful. Everything was thought about right down to the last detail and nothing was too much hassle, we were even greeted with champagne and cupcakes! He made it so easy, even our tesco delivery was unpacked immaculately for us before we had even arrived. The place itself is stunning, everything is top quality, luxurious and extremely comfortable. The only bad bit was having to leave!!!
Many thanks Darren to you and your team,
Sarah
Ps We would definitely recommend the fish and chip man on a Friday night!
