We popped in today for an afternoon tea with 2 young children. We sat in the garden for several hours enjoying the sunshine and the view of the wonderful grade 2 listed hotel. The garden is lovely- the kids played on the giant toys, climbed trees, made daisy chains and played nicely. The staff were helpful and friendly, we will... More

Beautiful architecture, gardens, setting. We had a lovely big room (Heron room) with Windows on two sides and a nice big bathroom. Very comfy four poster bed and fluffy white towels and dressing gowns. Young staff were very professional and helpful. Main drawback was poor wifi (although free, could only connect in one of the lounges), no mobile phone signal... More

We needed a hotel in the vicinity which would accept dogs. They were truly welcomed and our room was on the ground floor with our own patio area where we could sit with the dogs on leads. A little welcome card was on the bed together with special towels for the dogs. As long as they were on leads they... More

Went for an anniversary lunch. Had an excellent meal & the service was faultless. Such good value & pleasant atmosphere. The dining room is very pretty & comfortable & to top it all, we only live down the road! Would definitely recommend as we always do.

When we booked for afternoon tea, i requested a savoury afternoon tea (i don't eat sweet things). When it arrived, it looked lovely but it wasn't as good as it first looked. We had a few extra sandwiches (some of which were made with stale bread) and i was given two mini sausage rolls, which were rock hard and two... More

surrounded by park land the Dales is set just outside of the nearby seaside town of Sheringham (too far to walk though - its a drive away). Upper Sheringham is small - with a pretty church but not much else there (no pubs for restaurants). We had a standard room which was nice but I thought missing a few items... More

Five of us stayed here for a couple of nights. It is a lovely building, little bit in need of renovation, but very comforting. Great outside space, in the garden are several marques where you can sit, sheltered from the wind. Outdoor chess set to have a game if you like. Our room was very spacious, great bed and could...

The Dales is an attractive hotel in a lovely setting but in dire need of some tender, loving care. Much of the building fabric requires significant investment to bring it to an acceptable modern standard and the gardens are not particularly well tended. Our room and the public rooms were of a reasonable standard but again the lack of investment... More
