Arch House Bed & Breakfast
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 2, 2014

We chose this hotel as we were looking for a base where we could walk to the pub in the evening, but could explore the east coast and birdwatch during the day. Our room was a garden room, which opened out on to a patio area. This would be great in the warmer weather for sitting with a glass of wine. The room was compact, with great use of space to provide storage and an en-suite. It was clean, furnished in a contemporary style, and very tidy. There was plenty of tea and coffee in the room, and a very good breakfast menu. There is parking on-site. We stayed for two nights, and would recommend to others.

We stayed at Arch House for 2 nights for a short escape. My husband and I both love bird watching, so we were pleasantly surprised by Arch House's great location - inbetween several reserves, next door to holkham & with easy access to the CoastHopper bus, stopping right outside the front door!
We did bring our car, but we felt safe enough to leave it in the large car park tucked away at the back of the building while we made the most of the bus.
Anyway! Upon arrival we were greeted by Patrick, the owner's father, who showed us to 'his favourite room in the house' ...is that every room, Patrick? ;) What a charming man he is! Full of interesting info about the beautiful old building.
We soon settled in to our lovely room. Tastefully decorated and not over swamped by large furniture. The ensuite was petite, but exactly what I would expect for a bed and breakfast, and immaculately cleaned.
We were in the old part of the house and had bruit full views of countryside and grazing horses.
We filled in our order for breakfast the night before, which meant we were very excited in the morning knowing what was on its way! Made by Kate & served by the lovely Kathy. Best breakfast in England, hands down. We opted for the lighter salmon Benedict on our second morning. Kate you really know your stuff! I will be putting your egg poaching advice into action!
All in all a real gem - family run and friendly, but not overbearing. Nothing is too much bother and we left feeling like we had made friends. We will be back! Let's just hope that Sea Eagle we saw sticks around too!

Stopped here overnight while walking the Norfolk Coastal path.
The Arch house is a very nice, clean and tidy B&B, the room we had was one of the ground floor rooms out in the garden. Well equipped with all the amenties that two tired walkers need after a long day on the trail. Breakfast was more than sufficient for us.

Aside from the fact that the arch house is on the edge of town, this is a great B&B that we would use again.

Stayed here with my Mum, two aunts and cousin for two nights as we were visiting Holkham Hall for their Christmas weekend. The hotel is easy to find, the welcome was friendly and the rooms are lovely. Really enjoyed breakfast, lots of choice and it was all great. The day at Holkham was very good, the decorations and trees in the house were beautiful. We went to a Christmas Fair at Burnham on Sunday and finished our Christmas shopping, all in all a lovely weekend.

Room Tip: There are garden rooms which look lovely but we were in the main house. The stairs are not for the...

We had a two night stay. Don't be put off by the slightly forbidding frontage - it is lovely inside. We had a garden room which was immaculately clean, very comfortable and well presented. Breakfast is excellent and the three people I came into contact with during our stay were friendly and helpful.
