My husband and I together with our 3 month old son just spent three nights at the Lodge and had the most wonderful first family holiday.
The hotel is beautiful, they welcome dogs and families. Our room had the perfect blend of warmth and character, the modern four poster bed was amazing! Our cot fitted perfectly beside it and the 3 of us were very comfortable indeed.
The little Chesterfield style sofa opposite the enormous Flatscreen TV was perfect for relaxing in with a coffee whilst feeding our little man, there was also a lovely wing back chair for reading in along with a dressing table amongst other furniture.
The bathroom was brand new really modern and just lovely, I really liked the presentation of the toiletries and the range chosen and supplier (I didn't use any of my products the Norfolk ones smelt amazing!)
The bath was lovely and big and we had some great fun with baby each night at bedtime, the power shower was fantastic for us and a heated mirror was a welcome luxury too.
The little tea tin had a great selection of hot drinks for us to make and shortbread biscuits too, everything was well presented and neatly arranged.
The only possible slight and very minor observation I made regarding any possible improvement was the hair drier! I have long hair and the little travel drier in the dressing table meant it took a few minutes extra to dry my hair - I literally cannot find any other fault and to be honest I am fussy about my hair and should have brought my own!
So, the room is beautiful, well equipped and stylishly furnished; the bed is heavenly and the bathroom has everything you could wish for.
Now onto the food - Breakfast - quite possibly the best value for money, the granola is nutty and delicious, the croissants fresh and buttery, the hot food cooked to order is like nothing I have tasted before! You truly are set up for the day if you start it here after a great nights sleep.
We had breakfast and dinner at the Lodge each day, we hadn't planned to but it was just so good we didn't want to go anywhere else! I haven't eaten so well since our honeymoon -the food here is just spectacular, presented beautifully in next to no time and piping hot the produce was fresh and the flavours delicious.
All this is complimented by the staff all of whom were friendly, polite and welcoming. Special thanks must be paid to Chelsie & Sam who looked after us with such care and attention morning and night.
The location is beautiful, a stones throw from the beach which you find down a road which has the most charming shop 'The Strandline' - I could have spent a fortune in here it was just packed to the rafters with beautiful things! (Note: cash only)
A few doors down before you hit the beach is the Le Strange antiques and art gallery - again I could have spent a fortune here! To look properly through all the little shops inside you really need about an hour - then it's down to the beach!
We didnt take our buggy onto the beach but could clearly see beyond the dunes how beautiful the sand was - loved the beach huts too it was all so pretty!
There are loads of things to do nearby on foot and even more if you have a car - you have to go to Sandringham for the day the grounds are breathtaking and the house and museum are amazing.
If you have kids you must go to Norfolk Lavender, even if you don't have kids go it's great!
We spent four days in North Norfolk and barely scratched the surface, one thing is for sure though when we return we will definitely be staying at The Lodge again!
Thank you so much for having us
