“Excellent Hotel in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

My Husband and I stayed here for 3 nights over the Bank holiday weekend. The Hotel is situated just outside of Norwich and gives easy access to the City as well as to the surrounding countryside.

The Hotel is set well back from the main road and is surrounded by the on-site golf course, neither of us play but it looked idyllic for those that do.

On arrival at reception to checking out, I can happily say that the staff were excellent, so very friendly and polite and happy to help with anything. The Hotel was very busy over the weekend with a wedding on the Saturday and another function on the Sunday, but it never seemed overcrowded.

We had a ground floor room, overlooking the golf course, which was plenty big enough and exceptionally clean, with all the amenities you expect from a 4 star hotel.

The gym at the hotel is very good, and reasonably well stocked with a good choice of equipment. The swimming pool area was also very nice, busy during the day with children, but later on there is adult only swimming which made it easier, and it is open from early in the morning to late at night.

The breakfast on all 3 mornings was superb, a great buffet choice of hot, cold, continental, fruit, etc. The staff were all again very attentive, and seemed very happy doing there jobs, and the piano player on the way in to the restaurant was a great touch.

We ate 1 night in the Zest restaurant, which is situated away from the main Hotel and is frequented by golfers who have just finished or are just about to start there round. The food here was of a good standard and reasonably priced, although the bar prices were a bit steep.

All in all this is definitely one of the better hotels we have stayed in and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a relaxing break in a Beautiful setting.

I worked for Marriott while at university and I can say that the customer service at this property is exactly as it should be. The front desk, restaurant and room service are adequately staffed by professional, courteous hotel professionals who know their business and respond to requests quickly. We had great experiences with room service and the restaurant and really enjoyed our stay in suite 226 to celebrate our anniversary. We also enjoyed massages at the spa, which we were able to book just one day ahead. (Hotel spas are often fully booked, thus shutting out guest residents who try to book on arrival. I was pleased that there was plenty of availability for us on a short notice).

The only things that could have been improved are an updated bed (ours was a bit saggy) air conditioning (tricky as it's a listed building, but it would be really helpful as it gets quite hot - the hotel does provide fans) and soundproofing or some sort of reduction in the noise level coming out of the function suite. There was a wedding and a party during our stay, and since our room faced the function suite we were kept awake until 12:30 - 1:00 two nights in a row. It would really help if they would put a policy in place of requiring the DJ to turn down the volume of the music at 11:00. I could hear every word of every song even after closing the window and wearing 32 decibel noise reduction earplugs. . People have every right to party but a hotel needs to think of the welfare of all guests, not just those attending an event. I'm sure that we would have been offered another room had we complained about the noise, but we really liked our room and didn't want to leave it!

That said, we had a lovely stay and would gladly return, though we would definitely request a room that does not face the function suite.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that does not face the function suite unless you want to party until 1:00 am!

This is truly a great place to stay. The service was excellent. The breakfasts are a dream-come-true - really fresh and tasty. The only one thing was the toilet flush (I'm not kidding), you have to be fairly patient to get it to work properly!
I would go back tomorrow and hoghly recommend it.

We spent a weekend at the hotel. Service was good across all the restaurants and staff were generally very helpful. the Zest Bar is great for lunch and daytime drinks but atmosphere is a little too much like a cafeteria for dinner, that said the food is fine. The main restaurant is very good. The breakfast was excellent
the rooms were fine but I think they could get a little warm in summer as there is no air-con. The leisure suite was ok but busy.
The golf course was very good, there were lots of people playing but it was well organised and we had a really good paced 2 ball round at peak time on a Saturday.
All in all not the cheapest weekend but good value for money.

.... to have a great stay in this hotel - it's superb. We stayed in what the hotel calls a 'junior suite' and it was wonderful, a comfortable sitting room area with a separate bedroom, a TV in each and a lovely countryside view. The place was immaculately clean and all the staff were friendly yet super efficient The pool, jacuzzi and sauna were really good and not too busy and the attendant in the changing rooms kept everything spick and span. We enjoyed dinner and breakfast in the restaurant, both meals were delicious, well cooked and beautifully presented, there was only one disappointing thing about the stay and that was the saddle seat in the dining room, it was really uncomfortable. Only a couple of tables are near this seat so I suggest diners make sure they get a table away from the wall when they dine there. That being said I recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a perfect hotel break.

I recently had the pleasure to spend the night in the hotel and simply put it was excellent. The hotel is located about 10 minutes drive from Norwich City Center and situated in the wonderful setting of the countryside. The hotel has great facilities including a pool, spa, gym, the golf course, internet access, and two restaurants. There is also plenty of parking around the hotel.
The hotel is very well presented and I found the facilities clearly marked to find my way around. Rooms were very well designed and decorated.
The staff were amazing - from check-in to check-out everyone was so helpful.
I had a very relaxing stay and I would recommend the hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor away from the lifts/stairs.
