“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

This hotel is lovely. Due to a death in the family we had to change our booking and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The decor and furnishings are of a high standard but the really impressive thing about the Virginia Court is the staff - everyone was so friendly and helpful. Food was excellent too!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, especially at such a difficult time following your recent bereavement which changed your plans at the last minute. Happy to hear you found the team impressive and the food excellent. Hopefully we can welcome you back to Cromer on a more pleasant occasion in the near future.

Kind Regards

Martin

We telephoned Virginia Court Hotel direct on the 13th March 2014. The receptionist gave us the dates we wanted together with exceptional accommodation in their very comfortable suite. On arrival we found the hotel had good parking facilities in a tree lined quiet road close to the sea, Cromer town and the pier which houses a theatre. We received a warm welcome. The food was exceptional and to our surprise there was no problem presenting excellent varied vegetarian dishes. To sum up the hotel is warm, clean, comfortable, bright and a pleasure to stay in. In fact before we left we booked up to stay for another long weekend in May this year.

Room Tip: We stayed in the south side of the hotel and it was very quiet, warm and sunny.

Hi Paulette,

Many thanks for the positive review about all aspects of your stay. I think the biggest compliment was the fact you booked to return again for the May Crab & Lobster festival before completing your first stay.

We have many regular guests that come time after time to enjoy all that Cromer has to offer and its always nice when new guests join the club, so to speak!

Hopefully you will have a great Motorbike ride down in May, will save you a suitable space in the carpark!

Kind Regards

Martin

Had a one night last minute stay at the weekend what a beautiful place everything was just as described and more, fantastic decor very clean and staff couldn't be better especially Jo who seemed to magically appear every time you wanted something food amazing only down side if we stayed for a week I would be alot heavier. Once again thanks for a much needed recharge of batteries.

Hi, thanks for writing a review following your last minute stay in Cromer. As you discovered it is always best to speak direct with the hotel Receptionists as they can sometimes offer lower rates than online bookings!
We have one or two guests that mention they always go home heavier after a week long stay with us but we must be doing something right as they keep coming back!
Once again thanks for staying and we look forward to hearing from you when you next fancy a quick break to Cromer.

kind regards

Our visits to Cromer has a feeling best described as special. My wife and l, when we visit Cromer, choose to enhance our enjoyment by staying at Virginia Court Hotel. It is comfortable, well managed and the staff, without exception, are very attentive and professional. Well done once again. My wife and l, together with friends, look forward to our next visit in May.

Room Tip: Just discuss your requirements with the staff

Stayed as a last minute booking - Hotel is very well situated close to the town centre & the seafront. Nice building and very well presented downstairs. Room was a decent size (and with a bath!).

Ate in the restaurant and despite there being a big group in the service was very good and food was excellent.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel following your visit in February just as we reopened after our winter break during which time we took the opportunity to redecorate our bar/lounge area and refresh some of our bedrooms. Always good to hear that one of our regular group meals didn't impact upon the quality of your meal or its service.

We hope to see you again next time you visit the area.

Many thanks for staying with us.

Kind Regards

This was my third stay at the Virginia Court Hotel and again it turned out to be an excellent experience. We stayed three nights and decided to take advantage of the Bed, Breakfast and Dinner rate. The food is excellent and the menu and quality of the meals can't be beaten in the Cromer area.

Very friendly and professional staff who make you feel welcome. The hotel has ample parking and is close to the town centre and an easy walk to the Pier.

We visited Cromer as a family and booked four rooms at the Virginia Court Hotel. Each room was clean and well appointed. Tea and coffee making facilities in each bedroom.

A nice sized lounge and bar on the ground floor. A good place to stay for business, family get togethers, or holidaying in Norfolk.

Many thanks for taking the time to review us once again following your 3rd visit to our hotel in Cromer for a pre Christmas family get together. As always it was a pleasure hosting your annual family getaway.

As you know our Dinner Bed & Breakfast rates offer great value and our Chefs are always pleased to hear one of the main reasons guests return id because of the food they deliver.

We look forward to welcoming you back again later in the year.

Best wishes to you all

Recently stayed 3 nights to photograph Norfolk coast and the Broads. Hotel is located in a lovely residential area just a few minutes walk from town centre and promenade. Hotel staff were excellent during check in and throughout the duration of my stay. Room (22) was of acceptable proportions very clean an tidy. The bed and pillows were however particularly uncomfortable for my liking. Services like WiFi and TV also proved to be poor WiFi in particular was unusable in this room despite the wifi extender being right outside the room? Wifi would have been A good alternative in the evenings to the 'flaky' TV reception.
Breakfast was a typical standard fare nevertheless it was wholesome, well prepared and prompt using a a variety of local produce. Likewise the evening meals were delicious and again of excellent quality with good choices and reasonably priced.
All in all this hotel makes really comfortable base for a stay in Norfolk whether its just the "seaside experience" or to explore further afield. The coast line drive through the small villages of Blakeney, Cley next the Sea and on to Hunstanton is highly recommended as is traveling inland to the The Broads area in particularly I would recommend driving to both Thurne and How Hill if Windmills are you thing.

Many thanks for taking the time to write such a detailed review following your stay here last December.
Its always pleasing when guests recommend us to others and enjoy their experience with us overall although naturally I was disappointed to hear of your experiences with the comfort level of the bed you experienced (beds are always difficult for hotels - one persons 'hard' is someone elses 'soft'. Also of your problems with the complimentary wifi and tv signals although as you mention it is known to be flaky in our area. We have installed a new system of wifi extenders throughout the building over the winter closure however so hopefully our free wi fi service will work better next time you are in the area taking photographs of the stunning North Norfolk countryside all within a short drive from Cromer.
We look forward to welcoming you back when you are next in the area and your feedback regarding the new wi-fi system.

kind Regards

Martin
