You drive round the neighbouring pub ("The Oaks") to get to the main entrance. It's a bit confusing but there's plenty of room unless the pub is really busy. We booked a twin but were given a double (king-sized) plus single. The room (No. 28) was spacious and the en suite had a full-sized bath. There was tea- and coffee-making kit with china cups and glass (rather than plastic) glasses. Everything was clean and well maintained. Normally it wouldn't matter that there's no air conditioning but we stayed on one of the few genuinely hot days this summer. The hotel did what they could, providing a fan and a note to explain they'd kept the curtain closed during the day. But we needed to keep the window open which meant there was intrusive traffic noise from the main road to Holt/Cromer. If this is a concern, the odd-numbered rooms on the other side of the hotel will be quieter. Dinner in the pub was standard fare and didn't offer much (if anything) to those prefering healthy eating, but it was fair value. The hotel itself, however, was not offering much of a discount from the Holiday Inn next door (which has all its rooms away from the traffic noise and is at least one division upmarket). So I'd stay again, but would like to feel I was getting a better bargain.
