This was my 3rd stay at this little gem. It did not disappoint. Warm welcome all COVID precautions adhered to and room warm and well appointed. The choice of meals was appetising and excellently prepared and presented, and hot food was hot !! I have no hesitation in fully recommending this well run family owned hotel, though as no lift disabled guests should ensure a ground floor room for accessibility.
Just returned from a 3 night coach trip the hotel looked beautiful with the Xmas decorations. Our room was on the ground floor walk in shower lovely and cosy and warm plenty of tea coffee milk etc. The dining room is lovely the food is four star quality there chef is top class not a bad meal any evening. Breakfasts were delicious top class ingredients cafetière coffee which is unusual everything looked lovely . The lounge/ bar is cosy and very inviting for an evening drink and the owners are really helpful . This hotel is a gem in Cromer I will return
Thank you to the Virginia court hotel. Visited for 4 nights Thurs-Mon The management were very welcoming. Covid rules were strictly adhered to. Our rooms on the ground floor ,as I’m disabled we’re lovely and clean As much coffee and tea as we liked. Ask first thing in the morning for supplies The decor is beautiful , bright and welcoming but quite Art Deco in style Short walk to beach and shops. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious would def recommend and would stay here again .
Quiet, clean and conveniently situated..we couldn't ask for more. We have stayed at a number of supposedly highly rated B & Bs at different UK seaside towns in the past and have been left wanting but this was definitely in the higher echelon. We wouldn't hesitate in staying again.
I feel that the marketing blurb for this hotel is somewhat misleading, even dishonest. In most people’s minds, a hotel ‘suite’ consists of at least a couple of rooms, alongside the en-suite bathroom – or, at the very least, a separate sitting area that is somehow sectioned off from the sleeping area. Our ‘suite’ at the Victoria Court hotel was, in fact, a large rectangular bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. The room itself was tastefully decorated, while the bathroom was nicely decked out and of a good size. That said, it was, strictly speaking, just a bedroom with an en-suite bathroom – definitely not a hotel suite. The room had a sofa and small coffee table, yes, but, again, that does not make it a suite. We paid £200 per night for our stay. I thought I’d treat me wife to a four-night stay in a ‘suite’ to celebrate our wedding anniversary: we wouldn’t normally pay £800 for four nights’ worth of bed and breakfast, but I thought we’d push the boat out on this occasion. I was looking forward to surprising my wife with would have been our first stay in a hotel suite. The room was nice enough, the setting was good and the breakfast was tasty and varied, but, ultimately, we felt rather underwhelmed because our ‘suite’ was, well, not a suite. There’s no getting away from it: to say it’s other than a large en-suite room is stretching it, to put it mildly. It was not worth £200 per night, that’s for sure, but I suppose summer tourists are seen as fair game… And I wouldn’t say it was a particularly homely place, either. The bar was seemingly as dead as a dodo: most guests, like us, probably resent having to make a phone call to get somebody to serve them a drink. (I’ve read elsewhere in feedback from one of the proprietors that most people come to Cromer to explore and not sit around the hotel drinking; well, that’s true, of course, but it’s also nice to be able to have a drink when you return to the hotel having done your exploring for the day…) Meanwhile, the proprietors seemed to be operating some kind of good-cop-bad-cop routine: I won’t mention names here, but one of the owners was welcoming and happy to offer titbits of information about the local area, while the other couldn’t seem to raise a smile during our entire stay at the hotel, limiting his interaction with us to gruffly berating us for forgetting to wear a face mask in the reception area. Genuinely, that was it – it was as if we were putting him out just by staying there! By contrast, the waiting staff at breakfast were friendly and accommodating, showing how it should be done. Overall, it’s a nice enough hotel with decent rooms and a good breakfast, that’s not much more than a stone’s throw from the sea and town centre. It’s overpriced, though, in my opinion: I was happy paying £200 per night for a suite to celebrate our anniversary; £200 for a large en-suite room – albeit with a sofa - did not represent such great value for money, however.…
stayed for six nights, my Wife & Myself stayed at the same time as My Brother & his Wife, We all enjoyed our stay, location is spot on for Cromer with plenty of Parking (shame some people can't park consideratley & straight) Breakfast is consistently good with a varied choice, The bars seem to be closing early in town due to staff shortages so We used to take a bottle of wine back with us & sit in the bar downstairs, they even started to leave us four wine gasses on the bar ready for us!
Only a low score due to the cost of the room per night. If it was reasonably priced (I would say it was double the cost to what it should be) then this score would be different. Pros- Good location near town centre, quiet residential street Plenty of parking Reasonable size room Relatively clean Cons- No housekeeping for the duration of the stay (apparently due to covid but we felt for the cost of the room per night as a minimum we would expect clean towels and our bed linen made up daily) No facilities, breakfast not included in the cost which is bad when considering the cost. Restaurant closed. Bar open but not manned. Rooms very dated and need some tlc Tiny tv which is clearly very old as the picture quality was poor Room was very hot despite the cooler weather, would have struggled if we came along when it was warmer weather 2 single beds pushed together not a king size bed Beds were extremely hard, I like a firm mattress but this was probably the hardest mattress I have ever slept on, same with the pillows As stated above, if we had paid around £70-80 a night then the score would be higher and the cons list wouldn’t be such an issue. However when paying double to what you would expect for a room/hotel of this standard then you do expect more. I assume the prices have been elevated significantly as they are aware that people are staying in the UK rather then travelling abroad however this is very shortsighted as people will not return when paying such high rates for such average rooms/service.…
Very pleasant stay. Hosts are great at their job. Breakfast also really high quality. My bedroom was very well equipped and quiet. For five stars the front door looked like it was waiting to be replaced and a packet of biscuits in the room each would have been appreciated! Covid safety measures still in force which we were happy to comply with. All in all a 9/10 stay!
Stayed here over a weekend for the Cromer music festival. Excellent rooms, very clean. Martin and Sean were very helpful hosts and the breakfasts are stunning. Interesting building - originally a gentlemen's club. Very handy for Cromer town and beaches Highly recommended.
My wife and I have just stayed for two nights at the Virginia Court Hotel. I have to admit that I was a little apprehensive before I arrived due to the Hotels ongoing COVID rules and wondered if it would be up to standard. I needn’t have feared! This hotel is superbly ran by Shaun and Martin and our stay was perfect. We had one of the suites, which was well furnished and clean to a very high standard. The breakfast was a delightful experience, food of the highest quality and served with a smile. If you are looking for a hotel in Cromer, look no further. Well done Shaun and Martin. Philip Watson
