Having never been to north Norfolk before I did an Internet search for hotels in the area. The only one that consistently came up on the search engines was The Beechwood. What a find!!
Don and Lindsay have obviously worked very hard to get the hotel to the standard it is and it's as near perfect as you will get. We have stayed in 5* hotels that don't come close to the standard of this hotel.
On our arrival, a young man came out to the car park and asked if he could help with our bags. The next time we saw the bags was in our room. Nobody hanging around for a tip, they were just left neat and tidy in the room. On booking in we were taken on a brief tour of the ground floor of the hotel and informed of the necessary info regarding dinner that evening, orders for newspapers, breakfast, etc.
We had friends who live in the area joining us for dinner on our first evening. They had told us that the hotel was "very posh". It's not posh it's just very nice and very relaxed. The food was superb that night and for the next 3 nights of our stay. When they say its a 3 course set menu, don't believe them. It's not!!! Nibbles before, appetisers, velouté, starter, main, dessert, coffee and chocolates/petit fours. It's a feast!!!
The choice at breakfast is plentiful and portions very good. I had to ask for half portions which was more than sufficient for me.
Our bedroom wasn't huge but adequate and the bed was very comfy and the bath/shower room was beautiful, equipped with everything you need including lovely smellies. We didn't hear any other guests whilst in our room and slept well.
The staff are a credit to Don and Lindsay. I have never stayed in a place where you couldn't single out at least one member of staff that could maybe do with a little staff development. But not here. Thanks to you all.
There's lots to do in the area to keep you busy for a few days or longer and I can thoroughly recommend The Beechwood.
We will be back. (Sorry lads!!!)
