“The Best by Far”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

This is an excellent place to stay,the staff are very helpful,the food is fantastic and the rooms are also excellent,we only manage to get away once or twice a year for one or two nights and we always end up at the Lodge,we have stayed in the Coal Bunker (x2) the Garden shed both dog friendly and also the Attic room,if you can book the Attic it is well worth the extra(stairs can be awkward) fantastic room.We have booked for 2 more stays.
There are a few things i think could be looked at,the pillows in both courtyard rooms were below par(putting cushions in to fill the gap),both times we have stayed in the coal bunker there has been a funny smell(is it the boiler room next door?)will ask to have an air freshener next time.
Also i think larger portions of veg with main meal would be better,i had "pie of the day" which was out of this world.

We stayed for a couple of nights on a Travelzoo deal, with a Superior room upgrade. The first impression was that the room was a little small but that wasn't actually the case. Once we had discovered the changing room/walk in wardrobe, we found that we had a lot more room than we first thought. The bathroom was good with a full shower and a separate bath. In the hotel restaurant, the dinner was good but not spectacular and one waitress seem rather distant with a knack of looking the other way when passing by our table. The downside for me was the lack of good beers available (excluding lager) and the fact the wine list was poor even by modern pub standards. Change this and this hotel could be a real cracker. Breakfast was first class and overall the service was excellent with some staff really putting themselves out to go the extra distance. One point to note is that if you are on a deal and you have a voucher for "dining" it is for food only. The voucher doesn't make this clear but strictly speaking the hotel is correct. Despite my slightly negative comments, we would go back.

Room Tip: An upgrade to a superior room might be worth the extra.

Thank you for your review of The Lodge Inn,

We are pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay with us. It's great to see you took advantage of our recent TravelZoo special offer which represented outstanding value for money. We very rarely run these types of offers but they are a great help at filling our gaps.

We have 4 real ales on hand pulled pumps here at The Lodge including a seasonal and a local ale. We have found it becomes very difficult to keep the beer consistently at it's best if we have any more than 4 ales on. Our new menu and wine list were launched last Wednesday, 17th April - I'm not sure if you are commenting on our new list or old? Our new list offers every wine on the list by the glass, I know of no other establishment in the county that offers this.

We are pleased you would return to us and we look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you back to The Lodge again soon.

Yours sincerely,

Gavin Wyeth
General Manager

We regularly visit Old Hunstanton and thought that the hotels we normally use were the best? until we stayed at the lodge (March 2013) This is a Pub/Hotel which gives any 4 stare hotel a
run for there money. As we have a dog we booked a superior courtyard room as they give you access to the outdoors without disturbing other guests, the room had all the home comforts needed including Tea and Coffee making facilities, flat screen TV and comfortable Beds. As
For the Bath room 5 star in any Hotel Jacuzzi Bath, walk in shower. Very clean. As for meal
we had a table in the Bar, always reserved for and giving plenty of room for us and our Dog
to sit without getting in the way we could choose from the Restaurant or Bar Menus and the
Food and choice was excellent? our only personal small issue was the bar menu did not
contain good old favourites like ham egg and chips or any form of Pasta meal!

I travel frequently through my business so experience hotels and guest houses of varying quality. The Lodge is exactly what I would want every time I am away from home. Helpful but unfussy, the staff enhance the characterful exterior and chic interior. Tremendous array of refreshments on tap, sport on the big screen (but not turned up so it doesn't annoy non sports lovers) and a terrific menu. Rooms in the hotel are compact but all you need (with big bathrooms) while I understand those across the yard are apparently exceptionally spacious.
If you are in Norfolk - which in itself comes highly recommended - stay here. And if you are golfer, make this the venue for your next long weekend; Hunstanton is a minute away and Royal West Norfolk less than 10 minutes. CB

We stayed here last month with our dog in the Coal Bunker and overall it was a pleasant stay. My biggest dissapointment was the food. We had booked DBB for 3 nights and I only enjoyed one of my meals. We may have stayed whilst the chef was off as many people do seem to like the food at this hotel - however breakfast was very good each morning.

Location is excellent for walks etc and overall we did enjoy our stay.

Thank you for your recent review of The Lodge Inn.

We are pleased that overall you enjoyed your stay and breakfast each morning. We are not complacent at The Lodge despite receiving some excellent reviews and feedback. We always strive for excellence and I am sorry that you didn’t enjoy all of your meals with us.

Our kitchen team produce consistent food if our Head Chef is on service or not as we have 2 extremely capable and experienced Sous Chefs, in fact during your stay both our Head Chef and one of our Sous Chefs were on duty. Reading your review I am a little perplexed as I personally checked you out and there was no mention of you not enjoying some of your meals.

I would have liked to have fed this back to our team sooner than now but I appreciate that not everybody is comfortable giving feedback face to face, we do have in room comment cards in this instance. None the less, thank you for taking the time to review The Lodge.

We do hope to have the opportunity of welcoming you back to The Lodge again soon.

Kind regards,

Gavin Wyeth

Fantastic place to stay on a cold wintery weekend.
Welcoming staff, roaring log fires, candles, good food and a lovely relaxing atmosphere, a very cosy place to stay indeed.
Easy walk along the beach to Hunstanton, certainly blew away the cobwebs.
