What a treat a stay at The Control Tower is! We stayed in the Signals Room for the first time and owing to the limitations imposed by the high standards of CoVID-safety we had the Breakfast Room/Lounge to ourselves as well. We love the Art Deco style and the clever use of stylish modern accessories where needed which complement the look. Breakfasts are delicious and beautifully presented on vintage Woods Ware. We were set up for the day. After dinner at a local pub recommended by our hosts we could relax with a book in the lounge and finish the wine brought back so the driver could have some. The weather was kind so we could sit in the garden and watch Nigel working! The location is ideal for exploring the area. We plan to stay longer next time.
So good to be able to return to this B&B, just a shame that the C19 nonsense should have galvanised us into action. After the traffic horror of the coastal road it was a great relief to turn off the road and see the Control Tower and be offered a welcome cup of tea. We have been here a few times before and we are always impressed at Nigel and Claire’s devotion to the property, but also the history of the place. The new memorial is testament to this We were very happy with the arrangements. Nigel braving the storm to deliver breakfast was above and beyond the call of duty. We are looking forward to our next visit, out of the holiday season.
Our family was the first to stay once the Control Tower reopened after the COVID-19 lockdown. It was a lovely visit and Claire and Nigel were very welcoming hosts. The whole place is authentically restored up to a high standard. Beds were very comfortable. Breakfasts were the best. Everything we wanted was in easy reach - Holkham, Burnham, Wells and Houghton Hall. Definately recommended and we felt very safe in these unsafe times.
Spent the weekend here. The vegan options for breakfast were lovely and a great start to the day, especially the apples in cinnamon mmmm. Everything in the B&B was of a high quality, i.e. the toiletries, breakfast food and drinks etc. Loved having no television, just a radio and games, I rekindled by love of Cribbage. The bathroom was awesome, I could have lived in there but just remember it's vintage so don't expect everything to be spotless as old things get worn out (in a good way).
My husband, our 11 month old daughter and I stayed one night here as part of his 30th birthday celebrations. A beautiful art deco B&B; the attention to detail is impressive. We stayed in the signals room, which was very comfortable. The sitting room is a wonderful space, especially as it meant we could put our daughter to bed and enjoy our evening downstairs (playing battleships! Nice selection of board games!) We were made to feel very at home. Breakfast was delicious, and made even better by the range of vegan options available as my daughter has a serious egg/dairy allergy. She was able to have coconut yogurt or almond milk with her cereal which was great. My only very minor criticism would be that our bedroom door and the floorboards were SO loud and creaky, so it woke our daughter when we went up to bed. It didn't matter too much to us, but had there been other guests staying they might not have appreciated the screaming! However, it can't be helped in an old building I guess and didn't detract from our stay at all. Thank you for a lovely stay.…
