“FABULOUS - but check for functions!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

This hotel rates a score of 12 out of ten!!! We had a 5 day break - that is a 5 nights at the hotel. We were seeking a quiet break in a first class hotel with charm and character. Located a few minutes walk from a village and from the beach it is set in woodland away from any close neighborough.

The room - on the ground floor by the front door - was clean, well appointed, and excellent value for money. The management and staff were professional - from the moment we arrived until we left - we found all members of staff were friendly, polite, chatty, helpful and every thing you would or could want to add value to a short break.

THE FOOD - we had breakfast each morning and dinner on four nights. Mid stay we ate out in Cromer which is only a few minutes drive away. Back to the food at the hotel - the range of food was excellent. A small hotel with a good menu and personal service - all the food was well presented and reasonably priced. To say it was 'well cooked' would be to insult the chef!! The food was 5 star plus.

The bar was well stocked, well appointed and during the non-function days was a pleasure to use.

Generally speaking the hotel was quiet and just what we had been looking for. Yes there were the odd noises caused by people entering the hotel late - but nothing to cause alarm or annoyance.

During our stay - on a Friday and Saturday night - the hotel function room was in use for 2 charity functions. The function room shares the bar with the residents. The first function on the Friday night caused no disruption to our use of the bar or dining room. There was some late noise but the function ended at a reasonable hour. We were made aware that one family with a young child did have to move the youngster to another bedroom because of the noise. For us Saturday was somewhat different. The bar was wall to wall with function supporters, fortunatly we were able to hi-jack a member of staff and get pre-dinner drinks outside the bar. There was probably some disruption to the dining room service but nothing worthy of complaint. The quality of food and the friendlyness of the staff remained at their very high level. The noise though was something worthy of complaint. The shear volume from people talking - shouting would be a better description - vehicles driving past the window on the gravel surface and all those noises associated with a drinks function rang through the hotel. This hotel is a small hotel and thus there is nowhere to hide from the noise which continued until after 1.00am. I know the functions were for charity - i wiork for 2 charities so know how important fund raising is BUT we were there for a quiet few days - we chose this hotel because it appeared to be tucked away and quiet.

WOULD I RECOMMEND THE HOTEL ------ YES most definitely AND YES we will stay again BUT we will check to see if there are any functions on!

Overall I would still score the Hotel {and all members of the staff} 12 out of 10!

Room Tip: Choose a room on the first floor away from the front door. ASK ABOUT THE FUNCTION ROOM!!!!

Attended, with about 50 others, a fund raising dinner for EAAA. The staff were attentive, food was superb, nothing too much trouble. They did very well with service and the food was hot and plentiful with a lovely selection of fresh vegetables. I would recommend this place to all.

Went to celebrate a friend's 60th birthday in a party of six. Arrived in the bar, no-one asked if they could take our coats or hang them up despite the fact they saw us take them off and pile them on to a chair. Menu was handed to us and was a flimsy piece of A4 paper! This set theh tone. We were not shown to our table, we "followed our instinct" and eventually found our table. There were only about two other tables occupied - we soon found out why. No manager was on duty, and the staff were not professional or experienced although friendly enough. We sat down and had our first course, and no-one had appeared to ask us if we wanted wine. Eventually after quite a wait we managed to order a bottle of wine. This was literally "plonked" down at the end of our table with the comment "there you are" and we were left to open the bottle and pour our own.

Food was mediocre at best - with a bit of attention to raising standards and training staff to be more professional this hotel is in a pleasant enough location.

There was no atmosphere and no manager on duty to advise or correct the clearly inexperienced staff.

Will not visit again. Pity.

Picked this hotel for Valentine break for my partner, had a little trouble finding it. Hotel was a lovely building. Grounds look lovely. Was met with a warm welcome, and room had a lovely deep bath. Had a room at the front of hotel which had a lovely view. Staff were friendly and first class and we didnt have to wait long for our meals. Would happyly go back there again.

Lovely little hotel, beautiful room and amazing bathroom with a power shower. Great big Panasonic tv and a fantastic cooked breakfast. The in room facilities where the best I've come across including an in room caffetiere for fresh coffee in the morning and dressing gowns. Cromer is a few minutes drive away. £50 per person per night - don't know how they did it?

Picked this hotel from a website as we didn't fancy the ones in the centre of town. We were not disappointed. A lovely situation in the middle of the woods - signage from the main road could be better and clearer, so if you're going here keep you're eyes peeled!

Welcome from the staff was great. And the staff were friendly, chatty, informed, and helpful throughout our stay.

We were in the 'Elizabeth Fry' room/suite - fantastic. Much bigger and more comfortable that expected. The bed was comfortable, decor lovely, good tv, good heating, a lovely window seat looking onto the roof garden and birdlife. Tea/coffee facilities were excellent. Bathroom was large, clean, and a great roll-top bath and huge over shower. Only 7 rooms, so although busy the hotel was never crowded, and we didn't feel like a number in a crowd but were treated as family guests.

Good situation for exploring Cromer, but also further afield.

Food was excellent. We decided to eat here both nights of our stay, rather than drive into town. Prices represent good value, as the food was excellent. Wide selection, well cooked, and well presented. Best of all you could order you meal whilst sitting in the bar, then called through when ready. Breakfast was good, although the buffet selection was limited if you didnt want a cooked breakfast.

The hotel also has a good function room, and although we didn't experience a function I would recommend the whole hotel to anyone organising something.

My only area of criticism is the bar area which was tiled (floor, bar front, and rear wall)rather than carpet, wood or paint. It looked odd - almost like a bathroom or Spanish resort bar. But the lounge part of the bar was very comfortable.

We will return in the summer to enjoy the good in the huge gardens.
