We fancied a short break on the Norfolk coast bank holiday weekend and left it a bit late to book,so we paid slightly more than we'd normally spend to stay at the Pheasant. Lovely looking hotel in beautifully kept grounds,great first impression. The room was spacious,clean and comfortable,no complaints there,and the breakfast was spot on,cereal and pain au chocolat followed by a fry up,just the job! The bar area also looked very appealing,but as the wife is pregnant we steered clear. Our main aim was to do a bit of walking and follow some local trails,but this was the one letdown of our stay. The staff didn't have a clue about anywhere local to walk or go,surely a requirement of front deskers? There must have been 5 people milling about and none of them had any idea or looked as if they gave a damn. We found our own way in the end,drove to the next village Weybourne and strolled along cliff tops towards Sheringham,very nice too. The staff at breakfast consisted of one hard working girl,a young lad trying to organise things and another young girl who looked like she was sucking a lemon,so miserable it was embarrassing. Whoever is running the show needs to shake the staff up or they will lose custom,which would be a shame as everything else is of high standard.
