“clean and convenient”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

A very clean and pleasant hotel, polite and helpful staff and of course the Wetherspoon pub below. Close to the high street and a convenient place to stay for the Thursford Christmas .experience. Only negative point is the emergency light in the bedroom; there is a pilot light which is far too bright and illuminates the bedroom, worse than a "child light".

Room Tip: Rear rooms were nice and quiet.

Stayed August Bank Holiday weekend for one night, rooms very comfortable and clean, could not fault it. Also ate in the bar and this was also very good, typical Weatherspoons great value as usual. if you are looking for somewhere to stay in the heart of Dereham then this is the place to go.

Chose this hotel for good locality to meeting the following day, hotel was easy to find but parking was an issue as there is a limited number of spaces actually outside the hotel and their car park is actually further down the road, again limited spaces. I managed to get a spot when I first arrived but having to go out later than evening I returned to find no spaces, having to drive round and round in unfamiliar territory to park my car.

My room was on the 1st floor but unfortunately faced the main street directly above the entrance and very noisy from people and cars going up and down the street and from smokers congregating outside the attached Wetherspoons pub with a very picturesque view of a building site. The noise from what seemed like the hand-dryer in the toilets was a particular favourite.

The other issue was the lack of Wi-Fi, although advertised "free Wi-Fi", there must have been some issue as I could not connect though my laptop, mobile or ipad. Phone signal is very patchy in the hotel too. Not great for business users like myself.

I did not eat here so cannot comment on the food, I am not a fan of pub food so quite often avoid all together but prices looked reasonable from the menu if you like that sort of thing.

Probably would choose not to stay here again due to the limited parking, lack of Wi-Fi and noisy street, at less than £50 per night it is probably more suited to the white-van-man contractors (who seem to park fine!).

We stayed in a twin room at the back of hotel but was kept awake all night because of a generator kept switching on & off all night long. The room was fantastic big and the beds are so comfortable it was one of the best hotels I've stayed at. And the staff are so friendly.

Rooms are quite small but nice & clean big enough for a couple i suppose,had tea making facilities but tap water states not drinking water so they give you small bottle of water enough to make exactly 2 cups so take water with you as they provide plenty of coffee & teabags but main thing is that the rooms were so hot we couldn't sleep, no aircon, they had provided a fan but didn't make much impact might be nice in winter when you need a warm room.

Would'nt stay here again, we book here christmas as well but have now cancelled, we travelled up from kent to norfolk to visit family up there, so we booked this hotel because it looked really nice, we also booked my mum in as well so we were together, she had the room next door, when we went in the room stunk or number 2s, maintainace did come up and said theres not much they can do apart from put stuff down the sink and toilet, they said they cant move her because they did'nt have another room and the windows did'nt open much either, it was rank, in the evening we meet in the bar with the rest of my family, we had a few drinks, had a meal, then about 9 o/clock we were told my son had to leave the bar because he was under 18, as we booked a family room why was,nt we told this, we would have book elsewhere if we knew, it ruined our evening because my wife and son had to go back to our room for the rest of the evening, we spoke to the manager to see an alternative and he was not helpfull at all, we went to tell my family what was happening and left my son in reception and he heard the manager say he did'nt give a s--t what we do. Very rude manager ( Mr Ian james) so if you go there with young ones, bewere.

Room Tip: we only used one room, it was clean and large, nice.
