“Fabulous Location, First Class Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2010

To be fair, the hotel does look a little tired in places but this is more than made up for by its unparalled location and the attitude and attentiveness of the superb staff and the owner himself. The food and drink were faultless too. We will definitely be making a return trip to this comfortable old hotel.

Agree with most of the comments below. The location on the cliff overlooking the North Sea is tremendous, and the hotel is close to the town where there a some good pubs, most of which seem to offer meals. Staff are friendly and helpful and it's reasonably good value. Offer of a newspaper would have been nice and the TVs are basic with poor reception - but this is a problem with the area generally, as car radio reception was non-existent and O2 reception feeble. Breakfast is quite good, but note that if you opt for the inclusive deal with evening meal, you are offered a much more limited menu than that shown on the hotel website.
On-street parking is available outside, but this gets very busy as weekends. With a bit of investment, and some hints from the Hotel Inspector, this place could be a goldmine. By upgrading the facilities, it could be much more popular. It seemed very quiet during our three-day stay, but deserves to do better.

Picked this hotel because it has good cheap deals on single rooms (£47 B&B), which is very unusual on the Norfolk coast. It does exactly what it says on the tin - a mid-size time-warp 1930s? seafront hotel, ideal as a weekend base. The room was comfortable and clean. The staff are very friendly. We didn't eat at the hotel, choosing to go to the Crown in town (though the Lobster looked better when we visited that later on). The full English breakfast was first-class.

Just two negatives. First, the draught beer in the bar was awful - they probably don't sell enough, so go to one of the pubs. And second, the cold tap on my bath was broken and inoperable. Despite my reporting it, it wasn't fixed nor was it even mentioned again! Neither should put you off staying here.

Spent a long weekend here and this hotel was excellent. Meals were first class and was very surprised that more guests were not eating in especially as there did not seem to be many good restaurants in Sheringham. Very good value for money and all the staff were friendly and helpful. Will definitely come again.

My girlfriend and I stayed here while walking the Norfolk Coast Path. The hotel is right beside the sea and on the route of the coastal trail.

The reception was quick and efficient and we were shown to our room within five minutes. The room was spacious with large sash windows overlooking the sea. The bathroom and bedroom were clean and the bed was comfortable.

It was a warm night and the fact that we kept the windows open all night is testament to how quiet the surrounding area is. The hotel overlooks the sea but is away from any main roads. Despite this, it is only a short (less than five minute) walk from the town centre.

We walked out at about 2030 to find a pub for a drink. The Crown Inn is five minutes walk away along the coast and was a fantastic find. Despite it being a Wednesday night, the pub was packed (including a crowd of about 200 sitting outside) and there was a covers band playing. As London-residents we loved the friendliness of everyone, the mix of ages in the crowd and the price of the drinks. We left at 2330, while the night was still in full swing.

Anyway, back to the hotel: we had a lovely night's sleep which prepared us well for the next day's walk (to Mundesley). The sea air coming through the open sash windows warded off any potential, Crown Inn-induced hangover. The cooked breakfast also helped and we were pleased that it favoured quality food over quantity.

Looking at the other customers over breakfast it is clear that this hotel is aimed at the over-50s rather than the people of my age, but we still felt welcome with our rucksacks and walking shoes.

A cosy and comfortable hotel.

What a fantastic hotel! Quaint and old fashioned hotel with superb, large rooms. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. The food was excellent and the location is perfect, right on the sea front, with free parking right outside. Sounds a bit petty but our only negative is the poor reception on the TV due to the old style ariels. This really needs modernising.

Yes, the hotel could do with a bit of upgrading in some areas, but the family room we stayed in was clean, spacious and ideal for us and our young daughter. What really makes The Burlington is the friendly attitude of the staff who all made us feel very welcome and as if nothing was any trouble. We will definitely visit again.
