Good Hotel Guide Review

Glance up at the statue of Charles I as you pass through the wrought iron gateway to this popular Georgian town house hotel on the quayside. ‘Lynn Regis’ was a Royalist town, besieged by Cromwell, later assaulted by 1960s wrecking balls. Despite this, many beautiful buildings survive, including this former bank, today a ‘busy’, ‘imaginatively decorated’ hotel with ‘helpful, welcoming’ staff and a ‘relaxed’ environment. Its owners, Anthony and Jeannette Goodrich, also own the Rose and Crown, Snettisham (see Shortlist entry). Choose among bedrooms decked out with modern paintings and antique furniture – each has its own style, and all are well stocked with books, magazines and home-made biscuits. ‘Our comfortable room overlooking the estuary was one of the largest we’d ever stayed in; the memorable bathroom had a freestanding claw-footed bath.’ Food is served all day in the ‘sympathetically updated’ dining rooms, in the courtyard and on the riverside terrace. Sit down to ‘excellent’ British brasserie dishes – perhaps roast pollack, pommes mousseline, oyster mushrooms, cockles – or simply sip an evening cocktail watching a ‘glorious’ summer sunset over the Ouse.

Guest comments

'Our room, The Captain's Room, was one of the biggest we've ever stayed in, one of their most expensive, but at £140 for B&B for two reasonably priced. It had a large, comfortable bed, large sofa, digital TV, desk with chair, views over the river, two built-in wardrobes. The huge bathroom (with large roll-top bath plus shower) was excellent except there was nothing to hold on to when getting out. The owners have done an interesting rescue job, retaining original features but providing every facility we could need. Lovely scones with tea. The evening meal was excellent, with efficient and friendly service. Breakfast also very good. ' - Robert and Shirley Lyne - August, 0210
