We have just enjoyed a fabulous couple of nights in Cromer. Our Apartment at Tudor Villas has been perfect for our romantic break away. In a great location within 2 minutes of the town and beach yet so quiet and relaxing! We loved the decoration, styling and furniture which was all of a high standard. Parking is great and the owners meet and greet was very flexible and accommodating. We will definitely return soon. Thanks again!
Both myself, husband, children and my parents stayed at Tudor Villas in the summer of 2016 for two weeks. We both stayed in the ground floor apartments 1 & 2. Both apartments were very well appointed and spacious and although some of the furnishings are a little dated and worn the apartment are of a fairly high standard and located in a central location giving easy access to all Cromer's amenities. We decided to return this year and as the owner Mrs Oxley was keen to tell us the apartments are booked up very quickly so if we would like to return it would be prudent to rebook quickly on our return home. We did rebook and paid the deposit of £640 to secure the two apartments. Sadly, my father passed away over the Christmas period and we felt that this year we were unable to return as it was too soon after our family's loss. We contacted Mrs Oxley in early January to advise her that unfortunately this year we wouldn't be returning in August and hoped that she may show some compassion to our situation and offer some sort of gesture with regards to our deposit, for instance an offer to hold the deposit against a future booking or perhaps an offer of a percentage returned to us if she was able to re-let these, in her own words, very popular apartments in the busy summer months. I'm sure as Mrs Oxley will point out in her reply to this review that we should have taken out insurance, which yes, we should have and would have when we paid our final balance as we did the previous year. Sadly my father passed away suddenly and unexpectedly and although it quite clearly states in the booking contract, that deposit are non-refundable and advises you to takeout insurance, you don't always imagine you'll lose a significant family member so suddenly and require insurance 8 months before your holiday commences. My point is that if you plan to book with Tudor Villas please ensure you cover yourselves as you'll receive no compassion from the owners if you find yourself in this unimaginable situation. I hope you enjoy our £640 Mrs Oxley, your way of doing business has ensured we'll never return again!
Despite being a local boy, we fancied getting away from it all and spent a great few days on the north Norfolk coast. We've always adored Cromer but had never considered staying overnight before and only wish we had sooner! The apartments were perfectly located with just a few minutes walk to the town centre and seafront.
Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by the owners and couldn't be made to feel more welcome. The facilities were second to none and we found the welcome pack to be especially valuable alerting us to some previously hidden (to us) gems.
The only downside I can think of is that we weren't able to stay longer but that gives us all the more reason to return in the future!
First of all the good points. Location excellent. Ample off street parking. Spotlessly clean. The en suite bedroom was very comfortable. Comfortable beds.
Apart from the beds, the furniture let this apartment down. The sofas were very tatty and although an attempt had been made to disguise this with 'throws' they were awful. The wobbly glass dining table and chairs were of a very poor quality the general decor was rather tacky - lots of black including very strange fringing for curtains.
There was also a problem with the second bedroom. It was very small for a double and there was inadequate space for our clothes - one very tiny chest and a very small hanging area. We had to live out of our suitcase. With some new furniture and a shower in the main bathroom this property could be excellent.

I booked both Ground floor apartments at Tudor Villas for our extended family holiday. It was just perfect for us all, in a great location for my parents and my children being only a short flat walk from both the beach and town. Having our own outside space was lovely. Really clean and beautifully decorated with friendly owners who were there for our arrival. We all enjoyed it thoroughly and will be back next year!
We always look forward to our relaxing breaks in the lovely town of Cromer, having enjoyed our stay in a Seaview Apartment at Tudor Villas before we opted for a Ground Floor with balcony and courtyard this year. It was a great choice, very relaxing, comfortable and spotlessly clean. All in all a great return visit and we're looking forward to our next stay already.
Apartment was spacious, really clean and well equipped. Beds really comfy as well. Great location for walking to nearby shops and seafront. Car parking is right next to the front door which was handy for unloading and loading. Owners were helpful and could be contacted at all times if needed. Would stay here again if visiting this part of Norfolk.
