Having read the reviews of others we decided to give it a try for our one night stop on our way south. We can say the reviews were not exaggerated. We had a warm welcome, good rooms ( one double and one triple ) and excellent evening meals. The Inn is situated in a small hamlet and very rural so... More

Once again we were made to feel very much "at home", spoiled even. Carole and Roger were unfailingly friendly and helpful and the food was terrific: the fresh eggs at breakfast, the hot evening meals or the sandwiches. And the bar was a very comfortable place for an evening relaxing and watching the spectacular sunsets and passing deer. I saw... More

We arrived here after few days in London, visiting UK from Australia. We loved this Inn. The owners were delightful and very helpful. Carol made notes for us of places we should see and told us about the various supermarkets etc The meal was excellent and "home cooked" and served promptly with a smile. We parked our motorhome in the... More

Booked through late rooms, didn't have my booking, arrived late so made my room up while I waited. Very welcoming, room was clean and very nice. No towels in room luckily had one of my own, I had already got ready for shower when I realised. Nice quiet location. Would not normally stay in B&B pub as always feels odd... More

We stayed here last Sunday for a little break with our two dogs (Rotti and Doberman), as it was my birthday. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners, they recommended some lovely walks with the dogs, the fields and woods at the back of them was perfect for our two dogs off lead. The room was nice...

Thank you for your review...I am so sorry about the lack of towels in your room.. Our rooms are not. . our home ...they are our business and hopefully we didn't impinge on your privacy...though we are more personal than an hotel. Thank you More

The friend with whom we were due to stay in Swaffham was unwell so Bookings.com found us The Great Danes. It took a little finding as our satnav did not want to know their postcode but once we were in the centre of Beachamwell, there it was on the green. We were the only guests and were shown to room...

Thought the place was dirty, shabby and completely cluttered (dead flies and spiders in the bar/dining area, clothes & other assorted dusty items for sale all over the place, months of cobwebs and dust behind beside table, old toilet paper behind the toilet door & hair from previous occupant still evident in the shower!!). If you want a hot option... More

It is true ..we do our bit for Charity ....but strange review bearing in mind that most other reviews mention how clean and pleasant it is here!! It should be remembered that we are a Country Inn not an up-market expensive town hotel therefore our mobile phone and free internet connection are not always what they are in towns. It... More

We stayed in the Great Danes one cold and windy night in late December and were delighted by our warm welcome, by the high standard of our bed and breakfast accommodation and by the care and friendliness of the owners. At first we found it a wee bit hard to find the hotel as the sign had recently been blown... More
