We only stayed in Hunstanton for two days and in truth that was sufficient. Nobody's faulty of course but there was little sun on offer in Sunny Hunny! I'm sure it's great for families in decent weather but once you’ve walked the length of the seafront area and the impressive beach and cliffs there is very little else to see or do within the town for couples. However the Marine Hotel was the perfect oasis to explore nearby towns and beaches (Holkham is a must whatever the weather! Wells is also worth a visit but somewhat overrated IMHO). Sandringham too, is close enough to visit for all you Royal watchers out there. Our room (we had a great sea view) was large, spotless, well equipped with tea/coffee facilities, a small but efficient TV, a decent bed and a bathroom/ shower so good we wanted to take back with us. There is a small free onsite car park and the reception and service from the staff in all areas was first class. There is also a terrific restaurant ('Steak and Stilton') if you want a higher class of cuisine or much more popular was the bar area downstairs, which serves a wide range of pub grub. I have to say the food was as tasty and well presented as any and indeed better than many more 'high class' eating joints! Breakfast is served in the downstairs bar too and is open to the public. You do need to step outside briefly to access it and I can imagine that can be a challenge in inclement weather. Nonetheless the cooked breakfasts in all their variations are both filling tasty and really well cooked and presented. Brilliant! Any gripes? One double glazed window in our room wouldn't shut fully and when that easterly breeze blows you know it! Other than that this is a perfect example of a well-run, comfortable, spotlessly clean reasonably priced seaside hotel. Great service and lovely staff. I doubt we'd return simply as there isn't enough to do in the area to warrant the visit but if we did, this would be the first (and likely only) choice.
