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.
