This is a clean and bright hotel in a lovely little village. The bed was very comfortable and the room had everything needed. Nice complimentary toiletries and a good hot shower with soft towels. Everyone in the hotel the owner , receptionist Lisa, and the cleaning ladies were all friendly and helpful and worked so hard. They are advertising for staff but in these difficult times everybody was multitasking to ensure the guests were looked after. The food, breakfast and meals were all freshly cooked and delicious. We hope to return.

As a recent vegetarian I have food out disappointing- not at the kings head!! Superb food, which we both enjoyed. Large, comfortable clean room. Friendly staff. Great location for exploring north Norfolk, we visited houghton hall, burnham market and brancaster beach (massive open space). Sandringham is close by too.

Dreadful experience from start to finish. We waited 45 minutes for our main meal despite being called to our table. When it arrived the fish meal was ruined as it had been sat under the hot plate for too long and the fish cakes were inedible as too salty. On complaining the watiter didn’t know what to do and the manager was useless bordering on rude. He couldn’t care less, with the exception of the waitress who did care the staff are untrained and unmanaged. This place is soulless has no charm and is in need of decent management. Needless to say we abandoned dinner that evening. Travellers would do well to avoid.

This is a charming little hotel we stayed for a night in Norfolk. My sister and I got twin beds and they were super comfy. Nice decorated rooms with two windows, bathtub and all amenities, including hairdryer, iron, shampoo, gel etc. It was also very clean. The only thing was that the curtains were a bit too forward from the window itself so light still came in and you could see outside by the side when it closed. Not a big issue though. The checkin and checkout was so quick and speedy as well. It is set in a very nice picturesque area of Norfolk with Sandringham really close, the beaches in Hunstanton and Houghton hall. It is better to have a car to get around these places as public transport is basically non-existent. Breakfast was amazing, fresh made to order dishes, we got the pancakes and eggs florentine - super tasty. Coffee was good too and they offered dairy alternatives for milk too. Pastries and toast on offer too. Nice outdoor space, kid’s play area and parking. Will definitely come back if I go stay around the area again and will recommend to friends!

We recently spent four nights at this friendly hotel. Our deluxe room was large and equipped with everything needed to ensure a comfortable stay. The bathroom was also nice, especially the heated towel rail! We appreciated the daily replenishing of room and bathroom items, i.e. coffee, tea, shampoo etc. No problems with WiFi, worked efficiently. We had dinner in the bar each night as the food was very good. However, evidenced by a staff shortage, the service unfortunately was hit and miss. There was a lack of coordination in who did what, where and when! We frequently had a lengthy wait, either to order our meal or wait for it to make it to the table. Still, we were patient and the food both at dinner and breakfast was worth the wait. The staff work hard and are very friendly and polite which made our visit enjoyable. We travelled with our little dog and she was able to be with us for meals in the bar. All in all we enjoyed our visit and thank management and staff for making us feel welcome.
