Reviewed 13 April 2014

Booked this hotel last minute after speaking with reception and negoiated 2 deluxe double with view room for single occupancyfor £75 a room. Arrived at the hotel and went to the room and was not disappointed. Modern clean room with several electrical sockets. Bed was comfy and modern bathroom with powerful shower and nice view out towards the broads. Breakfast the following day was good all staff friendly and helpful. Would happily stop here again at the price i paid but not at the listed prices they want

Ate there yesterday (9th April 2014).Had the carvery meal and got more or less what I expected.For the price it is hard to argue and to be honest any vegetarian would have been happy.

The beef has come from the back end of an ancient animal but I knew that,the pork and turkey were ok as far as overcooking white meat is better than undercooked.As said the vegetables were fine,I had cauliflower with cheese and mashed swede alongside my beef and pork and both were very nice.

The bar service was slow and laboured as was actually trying to pay for the meal,apart from the waitress who cleared our table the staff are pretty shocking.

We used to say about NAAFI........No Ambition And F..all Interest but that was an insult to NAAFI.

I knew what to expect so no huge criticism other than OVER £3 for a glass of draught Pepsi mostly full of ice?

Little wonder drink driving is so common around Oulton Broad!!!

Just a quick review. My wife and I stayed here for 1 night on a quick break. The room we stayed in was a lovely size with its own balcony looking out on the water with moored boats and park as a backdrop. To be honest the room itself was a bit tired and dated but acceptable, it seemed clean enough and the bed was comfy.

The evening meal was also pleasant enough, you are basically eating pub food in pub surroundings, a huge place, very well staffed and the service was excellent.

No complaints here and would recommend this hotel, or just the restaurant if you are thinking of eating here. It is what it is, a pub with a carvery or steak/burger menu (Harvester type) with a Hotel on top and with lovely views, not that much to do locally.

Manage your expectations.

Room Tip: Top floor overlooking the water and park.

Just spent a weekend here the staff are great and friendly especially the young lady at breakfast she was polite efficient and was always smiling.
We had a balcony room over looking Oulton Broad it was spotlessly clean, bed was very comfortable.
We ate all our meals in the hotel and the carvery was excellent value so much choice and the desserts where delicious.
Will visit again as we enjoyed our stay so much.

Phoned the Wherry Hotel to book 2 rooms and spoke to the excellent receptionist. I then asked to book a table for the same night in the restaurant yet despite saying i had booked rooms i was told for a restaurant booking there had to be a party of six !!
Once i asked to be put back to reception this suddenly changed.
Why do hotels have this ridiculous rule especially when accommodation has been booked.
Upon arrival reception was still leading the way in customer service. We had been upgraded to a suite. The room was indeed very large with a small sofa and seating area, flat screen tv , plenty of lighting and power sockets. The large bed was super comfortable with reasonable pillows.
The spacious bathroom had a decent shower over the bath and good towels. I'm always impressed when a towel goes round me with room to spare.
Everywhere was extremely clean.
Our suite sadly had a view of the roof, a fire escape and other windows while our friends had a smaller room with a view straight onto the Broads which lap up around the car park of the hotel.
We did eat in the restaurant which is mainly a carvery and it was excellent. It was our friends birthday and as our server had heard this she dressed up his dessert with candles and sang happy birthday which was a nice touch as she didn't have to bother and could easily have ignored it.
Breakfast was buffet style and nicely done.
All the staff we came across delivered good customer service with reception and our waitress doing that bit extra. We would definitely stay again.

I was staying for 1 night only as I was in the area for business. I was given a free upgrade to the honeymoon room room. A whole wall was a glass siding door on to a small balcony with an amazing view. The rest of the room was oak panelled with a huge 4 poster bed. Shame I was on my own really!!!!!
The food was fine, not fine dining but still decent pub food.
