Last weekend we stayed at this lovely traditional hotel in Blakeney. We booked it before reading the reviews on this site and wondered, after reading some of them, had we done the right thing. But we needn't have worried, we had a lovely couple of days. We arrived at 7.30pm on Saturday evening and check in was swift, with friendly staff. Our room, number 32 in the courtyard, was warm and welcoming, had plenty of storage space and a very comfortable bed. After a brilliant nights sleep, during which we didn't hear a thing, we had a delicious breakfast. The waiting staff were polite and welcoming and the service was swift. There was plenty of choice from cereal, porridge, fruit and juice. For the main course we opted for the full Manor breakfast which, as I said, was excellent. There was plenty of toast and coffee and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. That night we ate in the bar, having a starter and pudding, as we had eaten earlier in the day. Again we couldn't fault the service or the food, both excellent. Another delicious breakfast the following morning and swift check out. if you are thinking of staying at this hotel please do not be put off by the not so good reviews, please go and see for yourselves. I think you have to ask yourselves if you would go back and we will definitely be going back having already made plans to do so for my birthday in June. We are a couple in our mid 50's both employed full time and our holidays are usually self catered ones, in this country twice a year and a summer break in France. So staying in a hotel is a bit of a change for us, but we can't recommend this hotel highly enough. Please go and see for yourselves!!
