“could have been so much better”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

I spoke with reception when booking and again the night before our stay. I asked them to confirm that I would have a disabled room. Both times this was confirmed. Upon arrival we were told they don't actually have any disabled adapted rooms, but the room I was in was disabled "friendly" because it had a walk in shower ! Unfortunately that doesn't help when there is nothing in the shower cubicle to hold on to. As it happens the shower head fell off when my wife turned it on anyway !

The only redeeming factor were the scrambled eggs at breakfast. They were cooked fresh and came on to the plate hot. Which meant I could smother the rest of the food so that it felt as if the cold sausages etc were warm :-((

The "many" choices of TV channels were 1-5 plus ITV2. No radio.

Had we been booked for more than 2 nights we would have been out of there........

Room Tip: don't expect too much

The hotel has a scent of mustiness about it, it hits you as you walk into the reception and gets worse as you go through the hotel and into your room. The place is full full of dust and the carpets look v tired and dirty.
The room was clean but not enough bedding or towels. The shower when it wasn't broken was a dribble.
The cooked breakfast wasn't great, a self service buffet which was always cold. Apart from the eggs which are cooked fresh! The staff were not smart in appearance and were seen to be eating their cereal whilst on the reception desk.

The best thing going for this hotel was a shoe shining unit available to use, and I have to say it did a good job of cleaning the shoes!

Room Tip: Upstairs ovelooking the front of the hotel will be a little quiter than the rear

We stayed here for a longer stay than we normally would have done due to our car being in an accident and having a loaner which didn't take my mobility scooter as the boot wasn't big enough.
The staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. The restaurant had a really good dinner menu and we also had a good breakfast there. The only downside to the hotel is the lack of disabled facilities, otherwise a really good relaxing stay.

We were visiting Kings Lynn on Mothers day and found all our usual eating places were fully booked for lunch. We managed to secure a table at The Quality Hotel and were extremely pleased with the food, service and price. The restaurant was empty when we arrived, which is a huge surprise as I think the food and service is far better than we have experienced at other establishments in the area, we will definitely use the hotel again when we are visiting Kings Lynn.

Stayed 2nights at the not so quality inn hotel staff are very friendly but the facilities are not up to much the bar area is all the hotel has to offer not even sky tv in the lounge or rooms the food in restaurant was very good but the lack of choice is a bit of a let down also quite expensive ok for a stop over but not for to long.
