We had a two night stay and thoroughly enjoyed our time here.
The room was well appointed, a good size, and very comfortable. The food was very good and well presented. Dinner was accompanied by a piano player which we felt was great. For us the standout feature was, in fact the staff. From the welcome on arrival to our departure the staff were unfailingly friendly, courteous and helpful. I did read a ( rather illiterate) review which rated the hotel as "terrible" which stated the staff were "young people who didn't know what they were doing" . We found the young people helpful, charming and competent.
The hotel decor is good quality if a little bland if you are a stickler for "character". A very nice touch is the use of fresh flowers in all of the public spaces. Food is available in the bar all day and they do do great sandwiches for lunch.
The location of the hotel was, for us, great. Very close to Holt (lovely especially with Christmas lights) and Sheringham (not so lovely with or without). There are walking and running opportunities. It's about 1km to the beach, reached by traversing Muckleborough Hill across the road. Behind the hotel are many acres of heathland easily accessible and offering many paths.
I think the hotel falls between "very good" and "excellent". The overwhelmingly positive reviews are deserved. We look forward to another visit in the future.
