“Beautiful respite!”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

If you are in the Cromer area, this is a wonderful base to explore a beautiful area. Set away from the busy road, you are treated to real luxury staffed by friendly, caring people. We stayed there in April, not a busy season, yet the hotel was full! The rooms are spacious and clean, the bed was comfortable, but as we were travelling by car, I brought my own pillows. Their feather pillows were nice, but I like my own. We enjoyed the lounge and the restaurant, and even relaxed with a nice tea one afternoon. If we were in the area again, I would definitely stay here. My husband has difficulty with stairs, and they have a charming old-fashioned lift that worked perfectly!

Actually stayed here a year ago but just getting round to writing some reviews on TA.
Booked on the day while we were visiting my family at their holiday cottage in Sheringham.
Warm welcome, accommodating towards our dog, room quite traditional and nice grounds adjoining Sheringham Park. We only ate breakfast which was a good standard. They converted a small lounge/reading room so our dog could accompany us. We felt that was a nice touch. All in all a pleasant stay.

We stayed one night recently at The Dales as we were looking for a nice hotel near to Holt and we certainly found one.
The staff are all so very pleasant and friendly.
The hotel has a lovely traditional feel about it. Very cosy with wood burners for when the weathers not so warm.
Plenty of parking.
The room was decorated and furnished nicely. We had a lovely room overlooking the front. Very comfy bed with nice pillows. Nice to see in the bathroom too, nice big bath sheets..
Only downside in our bathroom (room 3) was that when you stand underneath the shower you are pretty much standing by the edge of the shower screen so you end up with lots of water on the floor..
The dining where breakfast was served was decorately very nice, a lovely place to sit and enjoy. Good breakfast selection available.
If you are
If you are looking for a relaxing stay then this is certainly a good choice.

Dear Helen C
Thank you for your recent review you left about your stay with us at the Dales. We are always pleased to hear that our guests enjoy the hotel and the ambiance we have tried to create and I am always pleased to read nice comments about our hard working staff.
I thank you for your comment on the shower screen and this is something I am looking into improving so you don't end up with water everywhere.
I do hope that we have the opportunity of welcoming you back in the future.
Kind regards

Have stayed there in the past for a relaxing break we have not been for a couple of years to eat there so we stopped off for a lunch...as always the service was good and they were very polite..we both had the rump of lamb it was done exactly how we asked for and was delicious for desert we again both had the same home made lemon tart with home made ice cream...we have been enjoying the Dales for many years it has never let us down...and as soon as the weather gets better we will be sitting on the lovely lawn and having afternoon tea which we have enjoyed many times...I have stayed and eaten in many places in the UK but they don't come much better than the Dales...

Dear lou_loin
Thank you for your lovely comments about that Dales, I am so pleased to see that we are still meeting your expectations. We can't wait to welcome you back in the warmer weather for Afternoon Tea on the lawn. This is one of my personal favourite things to do on a nice sunny day.
We all hope to see you soon.

This was a good find. I ideally placed for touring the North Suffolk countryside and coast. Just 3min away from ,"The National Trust Sheringham Park". The hotel was excellent from start to finish. Friendly welcome, there were log burners alight in all the reception rooms and a large open fire in the dining room. Temperature outside -2C to 0C. Room was large set at the front (room 4),
Excellent en-suite bathroom. Very comfortable bed with high quality cotton bedlinen and a natural filled duvet and pillows.

Room Tip: Room 4. To the front of the hotel. Well set back from the road.

We just spent a great weekend in Norfolk and were delighted with our hotel. The Dales is a gem of a hotel with an excellent restaurant. The hotel has access into Sheringham country park and is well placed for several seaside towns. The staff could not have been more helpful and the rooms were clean and bright. We would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in this area.

My husband booked this hotel for my birthday after reading its great reviews on Trip Advisor, and we weren't dissapointed.

It is set away from the hussle and bussle of everyday life on the edge of Sheringham Country Park and the view from our bedroom was lovely.

The staff were very helpful and attentive and the room was well appointed and large.

The best thing was the standard of food, both for room service and in the restaurant. The menu was created from fresh, local produce and resonably priced for such good quality.

I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to friends or family looking for a relaxing break away.

Room Tip: My husband booked through Trip Advisor and we think that may have been why we got a free upgrade to...
