Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Efficient, friendly’ staff, ‘well-appointed’ rooms and ‘splendid seafood meals’ keep guests returning to the Nye family’s ‘charming’, ‘first-rate’ inn on the north Norfolk coast. (The ‘modern selection’ of gins in the popular bar helps, too.) In the conservatory restaurant or on the terrace, chef Fran Hartshorne’s cooking is ‘excellent in quality and variety’. Her menu celebrates the local catch, with mussels harvested at the bottom of the garden, and fish and shellfish delivered to the door by the local fishermen – try the Cromer crab and Brancaster oysters. ‘Very good, very comfortable’ bedrooms in the main house and a garden annexe are outfitted in a cool New England-style decor. ‘Our spacious room at the top had great views over the marshes. The bathroom, on a lower level, had a good shower; a generous amount of various toiletries. We particularly appreciated the quality coffee machine and fresh milk.’ Another guest, in 2016: ‘We happily watched avocets and oystercatchers from our large room.’ ‘Excellent coastal walks’ are accessed via the path along the garden’s edge.
