We we visiting relatives for a couple of days and were recommended this hotel. It is located right in town and has a large car park. The room we had was very spacious, comfortable and clean, all you could ask for. Breakfast was very good and although we didn't have other meals there, the menu looked good and the bar... More

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

Stayed here in April during a short break with friends. The pictures on the website of the bedrooms are outdated as the room I had (room 5) had lovely decor and judging by the rooms my friends described, similar. The owners should update their website pictures as this particular room was really pretty. Online pictures show different images, but then... More

This was the second time we stayed at this magnificent place. The rooms are spotless, the service is wonderful, and the overall feel is perfect. The owners are on site and can't do enough for you and the staff is all extremely friendly. Downham Market is a terrific town. If you have occasion to be in this part of the... More

Friendly owners and staff, nothing too much trouble. Upgraded to the Honeymoon Suite upon arrival which was rather nice, four poster, Jacuzzi bath, room service, Wi-Fi. An enjoyable stay. Clean Hotel with easy ample own car-park. Definitely worth a stay, we were on business but it was easily relaxing and the food wasn't bad either. Stayed for 3 days.
