I booked the room 15 minutes before I showed up and the room was warm and ready for me. The breakfast was big and very British. It was a great experience overall. I haven't written enough characters yet... oh now I have.

I booked a room here as working in Watton and this was the best deal I found online for my date. After one night I immediately booked ahead to secure a place here for the next month when I am working in the area. For a reasonable price I had a clean, warm, cosy room with ensuite facilities, free wifi,...

Horses for courses - I was not expecting a top-of-the-line Champion of Champions in this small town in Norfolk, Nor was I expecting Cesar Ritz on hand for the room-service. My expectations were lower - but they were disappointed. Let's start with the easy improvements: the bathroom was very small and made infinitely smaller by the door (room 5), in...

Very good hotel to use when away with work. Staff very friendly and breakfast starts from 730 and is very nice and a quick service. plenty of parking at the front of the hotel. Rooms are tucked away from main room so quiet.

Stayed overnight in this very pleasant hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was fine and breakfast well presented. Nice base to stay. Would certainly use this hotel again if in the area.

Had a gammon but it was very fatty and grisly. Our friend had hot chicken wings which were oily and not nice and was served with a Greek side salad which was not on the menu, this was awkward as she is allergic to most fruits. My wife ordered fish and chips as the lady on the next table had...

Look I really don't think these people eat out much. They moaned that the 10 oz Gammon steak had fat around the edges. listen not all gammon steaks are like the ones you can buy in supermarkets with the fat cut off...real gammons have the fat which gives it flavour. If you do not want to eat it, don't. The...

Staff were friendly and helpful but the room was OK for a night. I'd be disappointed if it was booked for a holiday. The food was very good when we arrived but as we were at the end of breakfast time it was a bit over done.

Staff were friendly, the room was comfortable, Good breakfast although limited selection, if requiring other than a full breakfast. Evening meal was plentiful, the veg/salad selection with the meat/ fish etc was not what was expected. The main courses are very large, we struggled to finish them.

Thank Len W
