We had a good time here. Nice room, with a window you can open, comfortable beds and a small but well equipped en suite. Food was excellent, and all the staff very helpful at all times. The small bar was popular with locals many of whom are happy to chat if given the chance. Decent sized car park, just watch... More

We stayed here on the way back after exploring North Norfolk. This was a very pleasant find and ticked all the boxes. Our bedroom was very comfortable and nicely decorated. The shower cubicle a little on the small side but suited us. Other areas were well presented although found the dining room a little dated. Having said that we had... More

Lovely hotel with a good welcome! As good inside as it looks outside. Lovely cosy classic pub bar area in the front and period hall/reception room. Great food, super friendly staff. Pleasure to stay here, even though just in the area for business.

This is my third time staying here, so it can't be that bad. It has a large car park at the side of the hotel. The staff are always very pleasant and professional. The rooms are always clean and tidy with all the usual suspects present and correct. I've previously stayed in Room 5 which a double with en-suite shower... More

Arrived a good hour early and as room was ready we were allowed to check in, warm and friendly welcome from reception staff. Our room was clean and fresh looking, plenty of space, free toiletries, comfortable bed. Breakfast a bit strange having to be asked what "continental" style we would like, nothing out on display to choose for yourselves, but... More

The hotel is ideally situated in the centre of the town. Our room was very comfortable, had obviously all been refurbished and was very up to date and smart. Lovely bathroom with a full range of shampoo, shower gel etc. Our friends joined us for dinner in the restaurant which had a good choice of menu and the food was... More

Stayed at this hotel on a business trip for one night. Lovely room allocated to me and was greeted by a very pleasant receptionist. Close to city centre and a ten minute walk to the Cathedral. Very clean room. Nice selection for breakfast. Overall a very nice hotel and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

We were visiting friends in the area and they recommended the hotel. Cannot say how much we enjoyed our stay. Friendly staff and lovely to stay in a small family run hotel as opposed to a hotel chain. Breakfast was freshly cooked to order and the fresh fruit to start was a great addition. Bedrooms have clearly been updated as... More
