“We thought it was excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2010

Admittedly the rooms were basic but at £49.95 a night you aren't going to get the Ritz are you? However, the food was a revelation. We arrived at 4pm one afternoon in January and, after dumping our gear in our rooms, we were made to feel very welcome by reception who pointed us in the direction of the bar. After a few beers we decided to eat. We opted for starters, Mussels and soup and have to say the quality and amount were excellent. Next four 10oz Rib-eyes steaks were delivered and all we could say was 'Fantastico'!! I've eaten in more expensive restaurants and had a lot, lot worse. Breakfast next morning again used high quality ingredients, not the usual cheap crap most place insist on serving. Quick, friendly service from a gorgeous waitress, i mean, what more can you ask for at half seven in the morning with a sore head?

Only gripes were digital tv reception was crap so no telly apart from 'Dave' and the 'free wi-fi' was password protected (naturally, although i didn't actually ask them for a password which was my fault) Minor grumbles though which i'm sure if i'd asked probably would have been resolved.

In summary i just have to wonder why, if a place on the A11 like the Breckland can do it, why can't everywhere in the UK do it? Thoroughly satisfied with my stay here.

All in i would definitely stay again and would recommend others to do as well.

Closest place we could find to Snetterton. Typical conference centre rooms, basic but clean just what we wanted! The staff were all cheerful (something you don't see very often in hotels thesedays) and the carvery was out of this world and extremely good value when feeding a group of mechanics after a hard days racing. Definately booking to stay there again next year.

We've been using the Breckland Lodge usually when we had to - ie there was little other choice due to late bookings, and also because it's so close to Snetterton circuit where we have raced on several occasions.

Each time you hope it will be better, but it never is, and the last experience was probably the worst we've ever experienced. The issues were;

1. Our room sported bare concrete and plasterboard, and threadbare dirty carpet.

2. The walls have always been paper thin, and this means your snoring next door neighbour /will/ keep you awake.

3. We breakfasted in the restaurant where all of our crew complained of very lengthy waits for service.

4. On one occasion two of us in different rooms awoke with splitting headaches, where we were later told some painting had been done prior to our arrival.

The place is now in various states of disrepair, and despite it's great location for Snetterton, we've long come to the conclusion that a tent is preferable, or even a night in the trailer, if we can't find another hotel/B&B.

The very disappointing thing is that in I believe 1998 or so it was refitted and looked pretty good. Since then though, a member of staff confirmed, very little seems to have been done to the place.

Our advice would be to avoid until things improve.
