Good Hotel Guide Review

The view is one of marshes and moored boats, of creeks and children crabbing, from Emma Stannard’s well-established, family-friendly hotel on the quayside of a coastal village. ‘It has maintained its standards,’ writes a returning visitor this year. Other regular guests agree: ‘It’s an attractive, welcoming place – no wonder we drive 300 miles for our annual visit. Many of the staff are long stayers, and it’s a joy to experience their charm, cheerfulness and efficiency.’ Several of the well-equipped bedrooms overlook the estuary; some others have a patio leading to the garden. ‘My beautiful Granary room opened, through double doors, on to the green lawn, with a few steps along for a sea view.’ ‘Top-class’ food is served all day inside or out; in the newly refurbished restaurant, the seasonal menu of ‘good local food’ might include grilled fillet of plaice, mashed potatoes, roast fennel, steamed courgettes. From day to night, children are well catered for, with flexible dining options, a games room, board games at the ready; the indoor swimming pool is particularly attractive on a rainy day.

Guest comments

'Our annual visit. As good as ever. The refurbished bar and dining room completes an attractive and welcoming hotel. All of the staff are long stayers, and it is a great joy to experience again the charm and competence of the reception team and the cheery efficiency of the porters. The situation is fabulous nd the food has always been top class. ' - Clive Blackburn - May, 2016
'A wonderful place in which to relax, and very popular. I cannot fault the comfort and service. The staff are carefully chosen and trained; they are courteous and efficient without being familiar. My single bedroom on the second floor was quiet and restful. Good lighting, lots of pillows, but horrid coat-hangers. The dinners are excellent and varied. A good selection of wines, with several half bottles, good for the single traveller. Breakfasts are good too. Blakeney is a small village with very little traffic, and the hotel has views over the estuary and marshes, a joy for painters. ' - Moira Jarrett - September, 1406
'Another regular stay at this family-run hotel. Rooms are comfortable and well appointed. The menu does not set out to be haute cuisine but is of good quality, ingredients locally sourced. We relish sitting in the lounge on a sunny evening, studying the men while enjoying the superb view over a pre-prandial drink. ' - Bryan and Mary Blaxall - August, 1306
