My Husband and I were visiting Norfolk and had not booked a hotel. Well what a treat when we found the Castle. Lovely decorated rooms with good facilities and a fabulous shower. Had dinner in the bar that evening. Homemade Steak and Kidney Pie highly recommended. The staff are friendly and cannot do enough for you. Will definitely be back...

The visitor apologised and left immediately. When we discussed this in the morning i decided to try my room key in his lock and it also opened his door, not...

A gem of a hotel placed in the centre of the town . Beautiful decorated,quirky,elegant and still very quaint . The staff were really helpful,friendly and everyone seemed really happy . Rooms were beautifully decorated and spotless,very comfy. Good breakfast but it could have been a little later !!! We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Good central location Small family run hotel. Very friendly owners and staff. Our room was spacious, very clean and comfortable with plenty of storage space. Food was excellent, especially the bar menu, however the breakfast was somewhat strange. No fruit juices, cereals or fruit laid out to help yourselves and had to be ordered. This was ok when the owners...

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...

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...

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.
