From booking our break with Fred on reception to arriving with an upgrade ( my wifes birthday ) on our room, the staff are so friendly, the rooms so clean, the views from our room were briliant, the food was very good even the entertainment from the "stroppy" chef at our evening meal made our stay even more enjoyable. We will certainly be back.

Very clean & comfortable rooms, helpful staff and a great location by the sea.Breakfast freshly made and quick service.Pub next door handy for cheaper meals but disorganised and does make the outside of the hotel busy & noisy,creating problems with parking.

I first happened upon Le Strange Arms over 10 years ago and thought then this would be a good place for a weekend away. Well, over a decade later, I took my wife their for a winter break.

This hotel does exactly what it says on the tin. It is friendly, it is comfortable, it is (literally) a stones throw from the beach, it is in a quiet location. It is not luxurious, neither would it win michellin stars - but then we paid £130 for one night dinner bed and breakfast for a sea view, comfortable double bedroom and loved every minute of it. There were plenty of comfortable lounges dotted around to relax, which made for a very relaxed feel.

The table d'hote menu was very pleasant, with plenty of fresh local fish on the menu. Breakfast was almost certainly pre-cooked and so suffered with the perrenial hard bacon and greasy sausage problem - shame that as it would have made a difference to have a good breakfast.

But it is the location that makes this hotel so special. Walk out the door, over 30 metre of lawn and you are at the back of the beach - literally takes 1 minute. There are no roads to cross, no cliffs to worry about, just a gentle one minute walk. North Hunstanton is not a busy place (I like that) but a mile down the road (or the beach if you prefer) Hunstanton itself has all the usual seaside amenities. For the best Fish and Chips I have had in ages, drive to Cley Next The Sea, spot the place with the long queue and join it - iit is worth it!

So, in conclusiomn not perfect, but a really relaxed, friendly seaside hotel for a reasonable price - who could ask for more?

This hotel has a great location on the sandy shore of the Wash, where it is possible to be on the East coast of England and yet see the sun set in the sea.

The weather was glorious and it felt as if we could have been abroad. The sea was shallow and warm enough to swim in at 5pm after a day of hot sunshine had warmed the sand for the incoming tide. Don't know how often this is the case on the East coast but they seemed to have had a drier summer than many parts of Britain. We loved the relaxed atmosphere of the hotel, where retired people and young families and several happy dogs all amicably made the most of the lawns, terrace and beach. Will definitely have to go back another time and take our dog to this doggie haven.

Our 'superior' room was rather small but comfortable and had a view out to sea over the free car park - we didn't spend much time indoors as the weather was so good, but we very much enjoyed the reading room with its large windows and magnificent views (and free internet access).

Breakfast was quite good, with tasty bread and cooked-to-order full English plus a buffet selection which included strawberries among the fresh fruits.

We walked into the livelier part of Hunstanton (about 25 minutes by the sea front) and found the fish-and-chips places all closed at 8pm, so we returned to the hotel and had a reasonable bar meal in their adjoining pub.

We hope to stay again and might try a winter break when they offer bird-watching specialswith visits to nearby reserves.

Great location and good room 106 which is a sea view. The food was good and the service very good except for the receptionist who in our case was very inefficient. We booked in and ordered a paper for the three mornings we were to be there but on day one no paper arrived. To save on any confusion I decided to cancel the papers. Access to the room was via a swipe card but for the time we were there we had to go to reception each day to have it reactivated. On settling the bill on leaving I noticed I had been charged for the papers.
Although only minor complaints I and previous guests have said this is not a cheap hotel and the little things make a difference between a good hotel and a very good hotel .
This apart it was a very nice break.
