Myself, My Partner and our dog Bo stayed at this hotel for 1 night in August. We chose to stay here as it was doggy friendly and seems good from reviews and photos. When we booked there were no rooms left but we were offered Room 4 which was a double room not advertised as they use it as an overflow room. On arrival we checked in and the room was lovely. We went straight down to the bar, grabbed a drink and sat outside in the huge garden. Staff and visitors were friendly and we booked a table in the bar for dinner that evening. Dinner was lovely and even the dog was made very welcome. The only issue we had was with the noise in our room! Our room was directly above the patio leading to the garden and as it was a nice evening lots of people were outside chatting and drinking until the early hours - when I say early hours, I eventually had to lean out of the window at approx. 3am and ask the couple having a cigarette if they could take their conversation elsewhere!! Which they did but then they were back again 30 mins later!!! All in all we had about 3 hours sleep. We were not impressed. Also the room was like a boiler room - it was so hot, we had to have the windows open or else we would have cooked to death, we found out the following morning that the actual boiler room was next door with 2 massive boilers in it - hence the heat? Upon check out I was prepared to mention the noise issue when I was asked if we had had a nice stay, but we were never asked the question and I felt awkward complaining so we skulked off with our tails between our legs!!! All this said we did love the hotel and we wouldn't be put off of returning, but we won't be staying in Room 4!! Really close to Brancaster and Hunstanton beaches which was the purpose of our trip.
