Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Everything is provided for guests’ comfort’ at this ‘relaxed, friendly hotel’, in a market town close to the north Norfolk coast. It is owned and run with a personal touch by Emma and Hugh Asher, who are ‘most welcoming, and much in evidence’, says a Guide reader this year. The red brick Georgian building is traditionally decorated inside, with dark wood furnishings and leather club chairs in the small bar. Browse the novels, magazines, newspapers and local guides in the lounge; in summer, French windows open to the garden, its rose walk and fishpond. Bedrooms, too, carry on the traditional theme, with swagged curtains or an original fireplace, perhaps a quilted bedspread on a carved-wood four-poster bed. Flannels are provided in the ‘well-equipped bathrooms’; at turn-down, chocolates are placed on pillows. Among the better bedrooms, three garden rooms have direct access to an outdoor seating area. In the large restaurant – ‘a popular place to dine’ – ‘chef Steven Norgate’s food continues to attract a loyal following’. Among his ‘tasty, filling dishes’: pan-seared Tavern Tasty pork fillet, parsnip purée, kale, crackling. ‘Good choice at breakfast, too.’ (Mary Coles)

Guest comments

'From Australia and just driving around England on holidays, my wife and I found the Beechwood a great place to stop for two nights and enjoy the surroundings. Staff were terrific, as was the food, and the room was very comfortable. ' - Keith Murdoch - July, 2015
'Everything about this hotel is more than just good. The room was very comfortable, staff were very friendly and obliging, and top marks for the food, always excellent. ' - Jack Hanmer - August, 2014
'We visited four times while house-hunting. Don Birch and Lindsay Spalding are exemplary hosts, hands-on owners who take an interest in every guest. They are in evidence most days but when they are not, standards are maintained thanks to a highly professional staff. The hotel facilities are immaculately maintained. The large double rooms are spacious and comfortably furnished. Large bathrooms have underfloor heating, slipper-style bath and walk-in shower. The restaurant has plenty of space between tables and the service is attentive but unobtrusive. The food is beautifully cooked and presented. Local sources are named in the menu. One of us is vegetarian and a special menu was prepared for her each evening. ' - Andrew Aitken - April, 2012
