Used the Globe for overnight stay after going to a show at the Corn Exchange. The room was ideal for my wife's needs as she is a wheelchair user and the bathroom was well equipped. The Globe has only one adapted room; and the only let down was the road noise which started at 5a.m. Being located next to the Tuesday market place, there is plenty of rubbish to be collected from food premises in this area. The noise from HGVs and the movement of bins spoilt a good nights sleep. Even passing cars and other vehicles could be heard.
The Sunday roast and the breakfast were really good value and enjoyable.
I understand that work is due to be carried out to improve the secondary double glazing.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your stay.
We are currently looking into our secondary double glazing, and we apologise for the council refuse lorry emptying bins so early in the morning. We will be contacting the council about your comments, as we believe 5am is too early for refuse pick ups.
We are delighted you enjoyed your breakfast and our very popular Sunday Carvery.

Once again, thank you for taking the time to post your review.

We spent one night here last week. The room had been completely refurbished and was in extremely good order, very comfortable, and no noise whatsoever overnight. The staff were pleasant and the Wetherspoons pub downstairs was ideal for a late evening meal (they serve until 11pm) and very handy for breakfast before we left.

The Globe Hotel certainly is a great little gem ! Although we paid a budget price I would certainly say this is on par with any 4* hotel. Lovely room with great soft furnishings and bathroom very spacious and spotlessly clean! Reception staff very friendly and more than helpful! We ate in the Wetherspoon pub, which is attached to the hotel but I have to say we were very disappointed with the food , when served to us it was cold and not very well presented, no excuse for a quiet Sunday night !!

Room Tip: Room 202, well laid out and spacious!!

This hotel certainly exceeded my expectations. The room we had compared favourably with places that we had paid much more for. It is linked to the pub which is loud Friday and Saturday night - so if u need quiet on these nights do not stay here. It was well located for all kings Lynn had to offer - although there was not much here for my wife and I. Had a bit of a row in the pub on Saturday night but Justin, one of the managers, sorted my issue with suitable diplomacy and even gave us a free breakfast in the morning.

Spent one night here and would definitely go back. Very friendly welcome and, despite the age of the building, very comfortable room and well appointed bathroom. Pub downstairs very handy if you're too tired to explore any further, Again, very pleasant staff behind the bar.
