We booked this visit on a whim as the forecast was looking good and we wanted to do some walking. The Chequers has been refurbished to a very high standard, the attention to design and detail is evident throughout the building. Lovely rooms, seating areas and dining room with very pleasant and helpful staff all made us feel that we... More

Booked this last minute to extend a stay in Norfolk...what a find. From start to finish, the experience was fabulous. The outside area is stunning with quality garden furniture and amazing pavilions. The bar area and restaurant are smart and relaxing. Our room was something else! Modern with quality expensive fittings, tastefully designed to give the guest a sumptuous stay.... More

The Chequers has been totally renovated, the bedroom we stayed in was excellent, a very comfortable bed. Assistant manager? Jemma extremely helpful. Manager Steven Stafford, first class as always. This was our 3rd stay in 3 years. Not a major criticism, but the bacon could be a lot better. The kippers were great

We were greeted by Steven and showed to our room which was beautifully decorated and furnished but very small! Couldn't have stayed comfortably for more than one night in Rowan. Lovely sheets, towels and toiletries. Curtains and blinds etc were all top quality. Steven warned us that the drainage from the shower was presenting problems and we discovered a damp... More

Good looking pub and menu. Ordered cheesy garlic bread and stone baked pizza. Pub lost 2 points-one for food-took 40 mins to get the pizza and when it arrived it was burnt on the bottom (there is stone baked for colour and recognisably burnt) - the staff replaced it no problem but chef should have spotted that before it came...

The hotel is in the process of revamping itself and adding more accommodation All very matt-grey with the potential to be town meets country shi shi, Mercifully not yet there so it hasn't quite become the commuter-belt Norfolk horror that some in the area have already become. Really lovely walks locally and a good base for exploring the local coastline.... More

This property has recently reopened following extensive renovation so we were interested to see the changes. The menu is interesting and varied and has a big pizza section. The food quality was good but the resturant ambiance does not match the food, it's more like a canteen feel with Formica tables and hard chairs. I spoke to the manager when... More
