Lots of mixed reviews regarding this hotel so we were unsure of what to expect on arrival.
The location is fantastic. No more than 10 min walk from the beach. 1 minute from the town centre shops.
We stayed in room 326, a suite. We were upgraded from a family room. So that was a bonus with a 2yr old. The suite was lovely. Clean. Crisp and airy. Housekeeping clearly do a fantastic job.
Breakfast was amazing. A huge selection and the waiting staff are constantly refilling and refreshing.
We didn't eat in the restaurant in the evening but from what I saw the food looked and smelt delicious.
We used the swimming pool probably twice a day throughout our stay.
It was warm and is a good size.
The cleanliness of the pool area needs a bit of attention. Dirty tiles, some broken and dirty drainage gullies.
The decor is dated, as mentioned in some other reviews, however I felt this added to the charm of the hotel.
The staff were friendly and the very few, small issues we had were dealt with quickly.
The housekeeping staff did/do an amazing job and were very friendly.
So. Would we stay here again?
With a doubt and as the suite was a lovely bonus we would even opt to have a suite.
Thank you Norfolk Royal Hotel for making our family holiday amazing!
