New owners, complete restoration, Good restaurant. Well the last time we stayed their ( 20 years ago) The owner of my company said it would be his last. BUT hey he wanted to try it again. Now he says " THIS IS THE PLACE FOR ME " every time I come to kings lynn this where I want to stay and this is where I want to eat! Talk about a turn round in attitude?
The rooms were fresh from redecoration very comfatable bed, good en-suite.
The bar and lounge facilities were spacious and comftable, But here is the only quibble that the bar man struggled with the english language.
The A-La-Carte menu was varied and the quality of the food was GOOD,Nice seletion of wines ( That went down very well)
