We had seen some good reviews of this place on various sites so we decided to book a night there for a trip to Norfolk. We arrived at 3.15pm, after a six hour drive from France, and were met by a woman, who we later discovered was the owner, who advised us that the accommodation was closed from 3pm to 5pm- "It's on the site"- and made it very clear that she was doing a VERY big favour by letting us check in. There were no words of welcome, just a demand for £78, and the key was handed over. She showed us the room and then departed saying she would be back at about 4.30pm. We went into the accommodation and discovered, in the middle of the carpet by the bed, a used condom. We then had to wait until 5pm for the pub to reopen before we could complain about our unpleasant discovery. We were offered alternative accommodation but when I pointed out that, in the new room, there was no mattress cover underneath the very thin bed-sheet, we were advised to leave by the owner and offered a refund. We grabbed it with both hands and found an alternative hotel where the staff appeared pleased to see us and the room had been cleaned properly. Overall an extremely unpleasant experience.
