Reviewed June 15, 2014

This is our fourth stay here......love the place.....who wouldn't?
The staff are excellent, friendly and attentive....and always have time to have a chat ( you don't find that very often!)......We cannot fault the food, it is always excellent and we are spoilt for choice.....their chef has an excellent palate and therefore the food is tasty......and something to look forward to. The rooms are lovely and although not far from the town, a good night's sleep is guaranteed as the hotel is in a lovely tree-lined avenue away from the traffic.
What is there not to like?.......we will be coming back at the first opportunity......well done everyone at the Virginia Court Hotel!....( don't forget to try the chef's home made jam and chutney!)........we always take some home to remind us of a lovely stay in Cromer. Overall this is not your average hotel......it's more like home!.......so if you like your home....you will like this hotel!
p.s. The crab-cakes were excellent by the way!)
See you soon Virginia Court.....Cynthia and John XX

Room Tip: We had a suite........which is very spacious and sunny....but we have also had a double room...which...

I have just returned from taking a group of 42 seniors to this hotel. I cannot find fault in anything, expect perhaps, a lift would be nice, when you are a bit less mobile.! The food was all home made and of excellent quality, bedrooms spotless, and staff friendly and efficient. Shaun and Martin the owners, made us extremely welcome, and Naomi organised my requirements perfectly.
The atmosphere was so relaxed, and the garden a lovely place to unwind. I would have no hesitation in returning, and recommend this hotel to similar groups who want a quiet, clean and very friendly hotel. We will be back.!!! All rooms are extremely comfortable, and it was deemed the best hotel that I have ever taken my group to by all.!! Well done to every single one of the staff at Virginia Court. Barbara Naylor

Room Tip: No need to mention this as all rooms are good.

I am glad your group of 42 Seniors enjoyed their recent stay with us. We have several large groups throughout the year and try hard to make each visit unique with our suggestions for day trips and meal arrangements. Regrettably we have no room for a lift in our foyer without destroying the beautiful original Edwardian staircase, luckily the steps are shallow and there is always a member of staff around to help if needbe.

We hope to see you all again in a couple of years time.

Kind Regards

Martin

I promised myself that I would write a review of this hotel but have had to think quite hard to mention any noteworthy items.
The staff - we only ever saw reception and restaurant staff - were very friendly and attentive but one normally expects to see the Manager/Proprietor in a hotel of this size but maybe they were on holiday!
The restaurant was reasonable and the food OK (BUT don't have the crab cakes as they taste only of mashed potato!) but it was devoid of atmosphere - reminded me of Waiting for God. We only ate in the restaurant once and then only because the place where we really wanted to go was closed - otherwise we wouldn't have bothered as it looked a bit sterile.
The NORFOLK Breakfast promises much with it's grand title but is one fried egg, one piece of bacon,a sausage, a fried half tomato and the fattiest piece of "fried" bread that I have ever been served. It's best to ask for what you want. The food is all cooked to order and was always hot.

The rooms are OK as is the rest of the hotel - WiFi is free which is a plus point.
There is nothing particularly good about the hotel nor anything particularly bad but I'd stay somewhere else if I went to Cromer again which is quite a quaint little town and quite sunny while we were there in May.

Room Tip: If you really want good WiFi ask for that when you book.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review following your recent stay with us. I am sorry you felt disappointed with your stay, describing us as average, however as you no doubt have read on this site the vast majority of our guests enjoy the experience and the meals that we offer.
We have recently changed the tables in the Dining Room to create a less formal atmosphere and are waiting for guest feedback before making any other changes.

I do hope you will return to Cromer as it is in a lovely part of the country.

Good luck in finding a hotel that matches your needs more closely.

I spent 3 nights and had a lovely stay. The hotel feels very safe and comfortable for the lone traveller. Room was lovely, the food excellent. All the staff were very welcoming and friendly . The location is perfect for its easy access to the town, seafront and pier.

Room Tip: Upgrade from a single to a double with single occupancy

Thank you for taking the time to write a review following your recent stay, I am pleased that as a single female traveller you felt safe and comfortable in the hotel and enjoyed the close access to the town and beach, both less than 3 minutes walk away along a quiet tree lined avenue and through our charming local park

Unlike many other hotels we do not charge single person supplements if you book a single room, and we even offer discounted rates to single travellers choosing to occupy a double room - I am glad you benefitted from this option.

We look forward to welcoming you back next time you fancy a relaxing break in the beautiful North Norfolk coast & countryside areas.

We have just had a three day dinner bed and breakfast break at this hotel. I cannot praise it and the staff too highly. The reception we received, the general condition of the hotel and the restaurant were all first class. It is for the restaurant however that we give our greatest praise. The menu for both breakfast and dinner was comprehensive, and the food excellent. Thanks to the Chef.
We will definitely return.

We stayed here for 4 nights in May 2014 returning today 15th. On arrival we were met by the most charming member of staff and then booked in for dinner which was roast beef. This was excellent and just what we needed after a long car journey. The hotel is situated in the most delightful road and really is just 3 minutes walk from the sea front. There is ample free parking just outside which we discovered can be at a premium in other hotels in Cromer. Our room (6) was at the front of the hotel with a double aspect giving lovely light. It was also really quiet at night despite being at the front of the hotel.
The breakfast every day was top quality. Beautifully cooked with a good choice. The hotel is wonderfully comfortable and beautifully presented everywhere. Each member of the hotel staff we encountered were friendly professional whenever we saw them. Free wifi in the bedrooms and the lounge is a real bonus for keeping in touch.
Overall we found the hotel just lovely. If there is a slight criticism maybe the size of the shower room which was small, and lacked space to place toiletries but we managed.
As a first experience of this part of the UK we were very impressed and will certainly return to this hotel when we visit again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel are really quiet.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review us following your 4 night stay earlier this month. Naturally we are all pleased you found us to be a Gem of a hotel, in the Gem of the North Norfolk coast!
I have shared your review with the whole team as everyone enjoys hearing that their efforts are appreciated!
We are lucky being situated on a nice quiet tree lined avenue and having lots of room for not only free carparking for all our overnight guests but also a large lawn area with comfortable outdoor seating for enjoying the sunshine in the summer, making us unique amongst the main Cromer hotels.
I am glad you enjoyed your first experience in this part of the country and hopefully you will revisit in the future - there is still lots more to explore!

best wishes
