We stayed for three nights at the Elmfield, and was well looked after by Chris and Suwanee, and I have to say this was one of the best B&Bs we have stayed at before. Many B&Bs in the area did not welcome babies so we were glad to find the Elmfield. We booked directly with the B&B after speaking to Chris on the phone, and it is the same price as booking sites - so book direct!
We were travelling with a baby and we got a complimentary upgrade to a family room so that we had a bit more room. Room 9 had a double and bunk beds, and was extremely clean. Sure the shower wasn't super strong, but it was adequate and meant we were able to take the baby into the shower with us. There was also a kettle and cutlery which helped when making up bottles/preparing snacks. The double bed was slightly too soft for our liking but that is a personal choice.
The location was great, 5-10min walk to pretty much everywhere and closely located to the beach which would be handy for summer. We used free street parking as the B&B parking was a bit difficult to get into, but there was plenty around and was not a problem.
Breakfast was fantastic - full english breakfast was so well cooked that I didn't feel it was unhealthy and we cleaned our plates 3 mornings in a row which is rare. It wasn't greasy at all and everything was fresh and yum. There was also a good selection of cereals on the side.
If I was staying for a long time I would want maybe a "light" morning with yoghurt and cereal so maybe this is something that may be introduced - but we had this for 3 days in a row and were happy.
Having read some of the other reviews - I don't understand the confusion with breakfast. There are menu sheets at the front desk where you fill in what you want - daily if you want as you can fill in the date. We filled one in each day - switching between scrambled /fried eggs and veg and meat sausages. There was no problem with this at all! And i am sure if you woke up with a strong aversion to what you ordered the night before, if you spoke to Chris something could be done...
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Norfolk and the Elmfield was a great base to explore the area.
Thank you Chris and Suwanee for taking such good care of us (especially Lachlan!)
