Saw the previous review here when looking for a hotel in Hunstanton. Looked at the hotel website and liked what we saw.
The standard of furnishings, decoration, en suite and public areas was of a very high standard. The style chosen for the refurbishment was certainly to our own personal tastes.
The hosts were friendly, the food etc was very good.
We have a few very small gripes and one larger one. If booking this hotel make sure you are not booked into one of the rooms at the rear of the hotel, in what is perhaps an extension built many years ago. The walls between bedrooms are paper thin. Need I say more!
Attention to detail isn't quite there perhaps. We stayed more than one night and our damp towels were still there in the bathroom when we came back at the end of the day. This may not be a problem if the heated towel rail was working or if the bathroom had a window to open to let some air in.
The remaining very small gripe was the kneck of the brown and tomato sauce bottles at breakfast desparately needed a clean.
Having said all of that, would I recommend this hotel to others? Yes, most definately, but avoid the rear bedrooms.
