My wife and I booked a weekend away in North Norfolk and were very pleased to grab the last room in the Globe at relatively short notice (a couple of weeks), which looked lovely. Because it was the last room, we knew it would be a bit smaller, but it was well-appointed and the private terrace for residents was a... More

My wife and I have just returned home after a five-night stay at The Globe Inn. The date of our arrival coincided with our 35th wedding anniversary, and after opening a handful of cards we displayed them in our room, before going out for the day. On our return we were delighted to find a card ‘from all the staff... More

We went here for a family meal when my father was up for a visit - with the location and the visitor count here the meal should be superb. It just wasn't up to scratch - a number of us had steak and it was quite tough and chewy and the eton mess was nearly all cream - a case... More

Visited the Globe for family celebration lunch. We booked a few months in advance and got e mail confirmation and a follow up reminder which was reassuring as there were quite a few of us. The main restaurant setting is bright and airy and the food is excellent and reasonably priced. Service was first class and very friendly especially has... More

The Wells festival was on when we arrived, so when management reply to this review they'll be able to say the noise was because of that and people are warned. To a degree yes, but you are certainly not warned that the volume level goes up to 11 and is deafening. Be careful when you book and be aware that... More

This is the owner writing and I have to say, I don't feel that you need to use such sarcasm in your review, of course I pick up on positive comments, but equally I hope you will read in other reviews that I address the negative issues head on. When you booked your room you were informed about the carnival... More

Everything was ok, Decent room, decent breakfast and very good position. However I thought the price was a bit high especially for mid week.. Little touches missing, I will mention the moving of furniture at 11.30pm which was annoying for about a half hour. Ok second night.

What a shame we didn't fulfil your expectations, I can only apologise if you didn't notice our little touches and attention to detail. I believe your stay might have been during Carnival week which is the peak week of the holiday season in Wells. With live music and stalls on the Buttlands, there are a lot of people around and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Overlooking a pretty, leafy Georgian square in the bustling seaside town of Wells-next-the-Sea, The Globe Inn is a great base for a break on the beautiful north Norfolk coast or an ideal spot for a pint of beer and some simple, home cooked food. Accredited with 4 stars and a silver award by Enjoy England, the Inn offers exceptional quality in all areas. We are also proud to have been approved by the Visit England Cyclists Welcome, Walkers Welcome and Welcome Pets schemes. There is a sun-filled courtyard for alfresco eating and dining and a perfect spot to read your morning paper whilst having breakfast. Take a short walk down Staithe Street to the quay and you’ll see fishermen setting out on a good tide for inshore crab, whelk and the passing sea trout and bass. The town offers a central base for the nearby beautiful Holkham Beach with more than four miles of golden sand, and the world-class bird watching sites of the Holkham Nature Reserve, Cley-next-Sea and Titchwell. ... more   less
