We have recently revisited The Norfolk. Much the same as we have been twice a year for the past seven years. Handy location for shops park and beach. We first went the Hotel when it was part of the Rose royal group. And it was bought by the peel group. The rooms can vary from very plush updated, flat plasma screens etc. to basic family rooms . The staff are excellent friendly (especially Francis who remembered my Granddaughters name and always has a smile. The food is excellent! The Pool is small but could do with a bit of maintaining.
The hotel can be a bit expensive but used to have good deals. The have many weddings and business functions.
Sometimes staff stay for a number of years and other times there is a quick turnover. Many off the staff are students learning English. Bournemouth has many Language colleges.
We can not flay the food even though the staff may be a bit slow at times.
Would go again!
