Positive Reviews

Great location

Many guests like that the hotel is near several points of interests, including Angles Way, Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft, as well as a number of locally owned shoppes. Norwich is also close, and home to a castle, art galleries and covered market.

Delectable food

Most guests find the three-course breakfast, complete with Irish tea loaves, English muffins and traditional eggs Benedict, to be flavorful and filling. Others note that the restaurant's menu is extensive, with each item perfectly cooked and the tastes exquisite.  Many find the wine bar a perfect place to relax at the end of the day.


Several guests like the hotel's friendly and relaxed atmosphere, complete with unique interior decorations that add a personal touch to the property. Others say that the property's rich history adds to its overall charm with rooms named after previous occupants.

Negative Reviews

Inexperienced staff

Guests comment that many staff members are new and lack experience, which can cause delays during check-in, as well as restaurant service. Others feel that responses to guest concerns should be more personal and customized.

No guest parking

Since there's no parking onsite, guests must use public parking.  Some say that the area's public parking rules are a little strict and having to move their personal vehicles from time to time can be an inconvenience. Many feel that parking rules should be modified for tourists visiting the area.

Unpleasant smell

Some guests note that the hotel's drainage should be better maintained, which would rid the property of the dank smell that overpowers the air fresheners.
