The exterior of the building and it's position on the sea front are outstanding. Walk to the end of Cromer peer and turn back to look at the hotel and you will see what I mean.
In it's day it must have outstanding. In more modern times, it seems to have become a popular hotel for coach loads of elderly seaside trippers. It's got that smell about it too.
The interior has suffered from a brutal refit to meet health and safety regulations. It could make you cry looking at the fine architecture hidden behind crudely constructed fire doors and safety glass. I guess they must have had an accident or two a while back.
I would not recommend it as a place to eat. Not even breakfast. But it is good enough for a couple of nights next to the sea.
Interesting fact - Stephen Fry used to work here.
