“Easter Sunday lunch”
Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

I cannot fault our meal at the The Hoste it was perfect, my only complaint was the service yes it was a very busy Easter Sunday day but there were plenty of staff they just needed a little bit of extra training in customer care, we were left waiting for menus due to being forgotten about, table service was in personal which was a shame.

Popped here for drinks & cream tea over the Easter BH weekend. Although the place was very busy we were served quickly & the scones were amazing. The staff were friendly, lots of comfy seats and a great setting. Will return to try the spa and restaurant.

This is was our second visit to The Hoste and so much improved since our first, many years ago. Reception staff were very friendly at all times; our room (35) was more than comfortable with a good bathroom. The room was over-hot when we arrived but the air conditioning did its job well. The view of the spa and the car park were not inspiring, and the television was barely fit for purpose but we did not stay to look out of the window nor watch TV! Ah, and then there was the restaurant: The bar area is lovingly quirky and attractive; the young staff are so attentive and friendly but, boy, they do need some training. Barely did we take a sip of our pre-prandial drink when we were whisked to our table and the starter thrust in front of us, on both nights and at breakfast (though, obviously without the alcohol!). It did not spoil our stay nor will it stop us returning but it is something that the hotel needs to address.

I booked The Hoste to take my husband for his 50th birthday. We stayed four nights. The hotel was modern with up to date facilities but it still managed to keep its historic feel. We ate there nights in the restaurant and had really delicious meals. Neither my husband or I eat fish but there was plenty on the menu for us and we don't drink wine but they happily kept us supplied with the beer of our choice to accompany the meal. Our room was really comfy and the tv's just been replaced towards the end of our stay, the picture on the old one was not great but the staff were really apologetic and did all they could but wow, it was replaced with a 39 inch Samsung with a sky HD package. At all times we were made to feel that we were guests and all the staff were kind and cared about us enjoying our stay and that goes from the lady who came to clean our room right through all the people at all levels across the hotel, they could not do enough for us. Would we go again, a definate yes.

We have been fans of the Hoste for many years, although I must admit we have not stayed since the business changed ownership.
However, last week my daughter and I decided to spend the day there with a visit to the spa for their Mum and Daughter package.
On arrival at the Hoste, we were most impressed with the new entrance, light and airy, with sm iling staff. We had coffee & scones through in the conservatory which is much quieter and in my opinion a lot more pleasant now that the check in desk has moved.
We chose to eat lunch through in the garden as it was a beautiful day and were served and kept entertained by Thierry. Lunch was very nice, my crab sandwich was delicious, served with leaves and vegetable crisps. We sat there for an hour soaking up the sun, the whole area is much improved now.
Our spa session started with the hot tub with a glass of bubbly, followed by a side by side facial and pedicure, all absolutely lovely. The therapists were discreet (I fell asleep during the facial!!!), and we enjoyed every minute of our treatments.
We ended with a cream tea, again in the conservatory, and were sorry to leave. I could not fault the day and it has inspired me to definitely book a room there again and stay overnight.

lovely weekend in burnham market.
stayed in room 1 - above the pub part of the hotel so was quite noisy in the evening - hadn't really thought about this and not ideal with 2 small kids.
room had a lot of character, oldy worly charm but needs updating. bathroom nice but not big enough for the size of the room.
tv was broken - only 3 channels and interference over these channels. receptionist said this was due to the storms earlier in the year - so why so long to fix the tv? wifi didn't work for 24 hours.four poster bed was very comfortable.
restaurant service was hit and miss. when not busy there seemed to be an influx of very good service but as the restaurant filled up there was not a waiter to be seen. no consistency with the restaurant service.
overall had a lovely break in north norfolk taking in the local attractions. but the room and service was far from perfect.

Room Tip: go online and look at your room in advance of booking

We have stayed at the Hoste 3 times now. The addition of the new restuarant to take breakfast was really nicely done. The rooms are nicely appointed and individually designed, there are some nice little details, like fresh milk in the mini fridge. We have dined at the Hoste on each visit now, however our overall view is that the food served up was not to the previous standards, also the attention to detail by the staff was not quite what it ought to be, given where the Host positions itself in the market. An example of this was that we ordered two cocktails pre dinner, these were eventually delivered to the table after we had completed our starter, this is not satisfactory, quicker delivery of the cocktails and a delay of the starter would be been the ideal of course. This feedback was given to reception and hopefully will have been passed to the staff to ensure they can correct this for other guests. The Hoste is actually well sited in Burnham which is a delightful little town with many day time activities in the area and a great location to visit for that special weekend.
