We called here for tea last week and to show my partner the delights of North Norfolk. The old place has changed abit since I was here last but it is still utterly charming, the staff are great and sitting on the terrace looking over the mud flats to Blakeney Point was just sublime (esp. as it was March). We had tea and scones - the Cheese scones were the best that i have ever tasted since mine! Go there for tea if you can.

We stayed at this hotel for a long weekend last weekend and overall I would thoroughly recommend it. It is a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, with nature reserves on the marshes that are full of bird life, and a popular destination for bird watchers, as well as walkers. At Blakeney Point there are seals to be seen and there are boat trips that take you out to see them in their natural habitat. The hotel is situated right by the quayside in Blakeney which is a small village on the north Norfolk coast, and is about 100 metres from the Norfolk coastal footpath, so an excellent stop over point for walkers. The staff were really friendly and helpful, and the food is very good too although I did have a problem with my fish being overcooked on the first night, a deduction from the bill was made for this. We stayed in Room 9 which is a B category room, and I think caters for the disabled as the loo seat was raised and the bathroom was more like a wet room with a shower but no bath. It overlooked the middle of the hotel,was spacious and the bed was large very comfortable. The downside of our room was that I believe it was over the kitchen so was too warm, and the windows looked directly into the windows of the rooms opposite so there was little privacy - would be better if there were nets at the windows. The shower was very poor as the power was not strong enough.

If you stay at this hotel I would avoid rooms 3-9 if poss (unless you like being very warm!), as they are the ones over the kitchen. The TV reception in the room was also not very good, and this was a problem throughout the hotel whilst we were there but I don't know if it is always like that. It didn't really bother us as we did not spend that much time in the room anyway, apart from sleeping! If you can afford it, it would be worth paying the extra for the rooms overlooking the estuary as the views are quite something and you will not be overlooked. It was very noticible that the demographics changed from the week to weekend with older people being there mid week and younger people, some with families at the weekend.

The hotel has many amenities from an indoor swimming pool and sauna facilities, to a games room with billiards, table tennis and darts. There is also a snooker room and two large lounges with comfy sofas and chairs - one of them is on the first floor (which is also the floor that our room was on) where there are panoramic windows, binoculars and a telescope so that you can look out over the estuary and marshes at the fantastic bird life. The lounges are an excellent place for afternnoon tea which, whilst we did not have it, looked very good.

The hotel is currently undergoing refurbishment which should be finished soon. It did not impact upon our stay in any way.

If you like visiting National Trust properties there are many to visit in the area, as well as Sandringham, the Norfolk retreat of the Queen!

This was our first visit to Norfolk, and we shall definitely return and stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a room overlooking the estuary.

My Husband and I wanted a seaside break with our Daughter (22 months). We googled family friendly hotels and this came up, it looked fab so we booked it. And it is fab really, very clean, tidy, lovely pool area, good size rooms and very helpful staff. BUT, i wish it wasn't advertised as family friendly. Children are not allowed in the bar, and we couldn't all eat dinner together as children eat 5:45 until 6:45 (we were not allowed to order any adult food at this time) then from 6:45 adults can eat in the restuarant but no high chairs or pushchairs are allowed in there at this time which ruled us out so we ended up having sandwiches in our room in the dark while our daughter was asleep. It is so old fashioned for children not to be allowed in bars and restaurants these days, we were very surprised. I also didn't see any other children in the hotel in the time we were there, granted it was just one night. To be honest I didn't see any young couples at all (i am in my late 20's and my husband early 30's). It is very much for elderly people really. The hotel was so quiet we were whispering as we didn't want to make too much noise. Unfortunately it had no buzz about it at all. If you are looking for an extremely quiet break then this is perfect, but if you are planning a family break then think again.

It is twelve months since we visited "The Blakeney" and found it better than ever. I suspect however it may not be to everyone's taste. What are we recommending then? Well good food, friendly attentive service and a relaxing atmosphere on a unique location. It is expensive, many of the guests are not in the "first flush of youth" including ourselves. It is probably not the place for younger folk to consider for a stag or hen party. Children might find it boring. For the rest of us it is a very welcome touch of luxory, to be looked forward to and relished. It is privately owned, long may it be so. Goodness knows what a big corporation would do if they took over. Ruin it almost certainly. Spoil yourself and take a trip to North Norfolk. you won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: Not a big problem but try to keep away from over the kitchen extractor fans. They do turn them off! Similar situation nesr the swimming pool ventilation system.

We had the great pleasure of enjoying a lovely winter break in Blakeney, it was our third visit over a period of four years experiencing the same friendly welcoming services of all members of staff. the rooms are nicely decorated and comfortable with all mod cons .
the breafast and dinner menu's were excellent with a good variety of excellent well cooked and presented food.
As i said it was our third visit but it will certainly not be the last, once again thankyou to all the staff for making it another memorable stay
