I stayed at the Dales for 3 nights when visiting an old school friend in Sheringham July 28 - 30th. I felt that it was extremely overpriced and I was very disappointed.The staff, with one exception, were indifferent, and the room was plain and somewhat shabby. I had forgotten to bring toothpaste and I assumed that I could ask for some in reception. They were, however, unable to provide any. While the food in Upcher's restaurant was good, the waitress at dinner was surly and unhelpful.
It is a small hotel, but I was totally ignored by the staff when entering and leaving. In my experience, a nod or smile - or a greeting are common practice when I enter, leave or make my way through an hotel. I have no need for hotel staff to be 'friendly', but common curtesy is a minimum requirement.
As there were no signals, I was unable to use my mobile phone, and the television signals fluctuated so much that watching TV was pointless.
I'm afraid that I would not recommend The Dales to anyone.More
