Stayed for 2 nights in August 2012.

Good location for exploring the North Norfolk Coast, and very nice breakfasts.

However, please don't be swayed by the impressiveness of the entrance to the hotel. The bedroom we stayed in (room 11), was in a dire need of an upgrade. Although a comfy bed, there were holes in the wall and mouldy wood in the panelling around the bath. The bathroom was quite unpleasant.

Generally, the room was very run down, and did not justify the price.

Whilst waiting to speak to a receptionist, I was also witness to a bizarre argument between the housekeeper and the receptionist about being short-changed in her pay packet - not a conversation that I expect the hotel would like their guests to be privy to.

We booked a family room on laterooms.com but we found by contacting the hotel directly we could have got an even better deal. Our room was in the older part of the property, on the ground floor, with two queen-sized beds and an additional fold up bed, which we didn't need. There was plenty of room for the four of us, and the bathroom was a good size too. The room had a fridge which didn't get beyond room temperature, a very noisy portable aircon unit, a sofa and an armchair. Modern design but a tiny, tiny window with no view and very little light. However the beds were comfy and the room was very clean. So clean that, for the first time in a long time of travelling, I left a tip for the cleaner.
The food is good here. We stayed for 3 nights, so had 3 breakfasts and two evening meals. The portions for the dinners are not huge but the food is fresh and well-cooked. The children's menu is very good, even for our fussy two, who cleared their plates. Breakfast is really nothing special. Eggs on half a roll, black pudding, bacon, fried (frozen) potato wedges, baked beans, tomatoes, sausages. Exactly the same every day. Good cereal bar, large bowls of tinned fruit and a very small amount of fresh. No muffins or breakfast rolls. A very tempermental pair of industrial toasters which either throw you an untoasted slice or one which is actually on fire. Toast is a bit of a gamble so I gave up and just had bread and honey! Service is good in the restaurant. Used plates are taken away very quickly and tea and coffee are brought as soon as you want it.
We would stay here again, but we would ask for a room either on the first floor or one without a room above. If you stay downstairs in the older part of the building, the creaking floorboards upstairs will drive you insane. For two nights we had to listen to an insomniac pacing the floor above at all hours. Not the hotel's fault, of course, but annoying all the same. You would not choose this hotel unless you were going out and about all day. The bar is comfortable and friendly but there is no view to while away the hours. No pool, no spa, no leisure facilities at all. We did walk to the beach, but is is quite a stomp over the sand dunes, so if you have mobility problems the '10 minute walk to the beach' is a real challenge. And it is uphill coming back. The hangers in our room had 'Caley Hall Motel' printed on them, and this is exactly what it is. A motel.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the chalet style rooms, or an upstairs room in the older part of the hotel.

Lovely hotel, it has a unique style, there is no main building where the rooms are, and they are all at the back of the restaurant and spread out. Some rooms like the one we had are up stairs, so if you need a ground floor room you must ask for one. The rooms we had was lovely very spacious and well decorated, we had a bathroom with a bath (no shower), we also had a fridge and aircon unit. The location is idea, only a short walk through the village to the beach or a short drive to Hunstanton. The food was nice but a tad expensive for the portion size and breakfast was more that adequate and a nice choice. Staff were fantastic, reception staff were really good no problems on check in/out, bar staff were very helpful and friendly.

All in all I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this hotel we had a lovely stay.

Room Tip: Some rooms are upstairs and have a bath no shower, so you need to ask if you want these things.

This hotel is on the out- skirts of Hunstanton,so too far to walk to theatre.The staff were very welcoming and the bar meals were excellent. The room was a 3/4 person occupancy, it was perfect for our needs, comfortable kingsize beds, robes, large bathroom with plenty of hot water. Breakfast was also excellent.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. With regards to the phone signal this is unfortunately a regular problem with the hunstanton area although we do offer free wifi within the hotel in an attempt to improve the situation.
We hope to welcome you again in the future.
