Had a fab stay here last weekend. Lovely breakfast, comfortable room & close to beach. The owner was very friendly and told us lots interesting facts about the house. He had our son enthralled. He was also very helpful with details of the surrounding area. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

my friend and I stayed at this unique establishment for two nights We were greeted in a most welcoming way. The accommodation exceeded expectations for the price we paid. The house is full of old world atmosphere, the rooms were large warm and clean, and the breakfast was excellent. I would certainly recommend you try this place. We will definitely come again . Thank you Archie.

Room Tip: The family room is excellent and you only get charged by person not size of room

We visited this area for a short break by the sea and came across Danum House. It is a nice old cottage in Overstrand near to Cromer. We liked the charm of the building from the outside very much. The owner welcomed us and showed us our room. He was chatty and pleasant. The room was cosy and had everything that we needed and the bed turned out to be comfortable. The towels and sheets were clean. The building has an old world cottage feel to it, but that added to its charm in my view.. Danum House is not shining and modern but serves its purpose well. Our breakfast was good. The rates are very reasonable, and we would visit and stay again.

Room Tip: We only viewed one room, but that was comfortable and warm.

We stayed recently at Danum House B&B. The cottage style B&B is charming and historic. The owner is polite and helpful. He offered to carry our bags in and showed us our room. The rates are very reasonable. We parked our car outside. We enjoyed our full English breakfasts very much. The rooms are clean and we had an ensuite room with shower. The bed was comfortable. It is an easy walk to the beach down a slope. The village has a church, pub, post office and shop and a posh hotel. The pub and hotel serve good food in the day time and evenings. There is also a conservative club that welcomes all and serves inexpensive drinks. The area is quiet and countryfied. We could hear owls at night in the trees near to Danum House which is nice.

Room Tip: Our room was at the front.

Pulled up outside and thought WOW! The ground floor was 'charming but very dated' but our disappointment was the main bedroom to which we were shown. It's the main bedroom with the huge bay window at the front of the house.

It was very shabby and not very clean, it looked like it had been sort of 'modernised' in the 60's and had not been decorated or cleaned since. The woodwork (lots of it) looked like someone had started to strip it many years ago, got fed up and not bothered with it since. The headboards on the two single beds were filthy with greasy hair stains and the double bed looked horrible with odd pillow cases, not too clean sheets and a cover that had been on it for years.

Everything in the room was odd, the TV at least 20 years old and barely hanging on the wall, the kettle was dirty, where do I stop...

The 'en suite' was disgusting, the toilet was dirty and needed some very strong bleach down it, everything about this place was of a very poor standard, hence the cheap rates. Needless to say we didn't stay although we had booked for 3 nights for a special occasion.

There was no way we could have stayed and slept in that bedroom, it was horrible. I can't comment on the breakfast obviously but staying here was never an option.

Room Tip: Choose somewhere else.

A lovely big room in a delightful house a 5 minute walk from the beach. Friendly owner and lovely breakfast. Ok this place is in need of a revamp decor wise but what it lacks in that area it makes up for in charm. Would definitely visit again
