Good Hotel Guide Review
On a quiet street in the Victorian bathing resort of ‘sunny Hunny’, with west-facing views across the Wash, Jeanne Whittome’s smart but relaxed B&B is an ideal base from which to explore north Norfolk. Everything is in place for a pleasurable stay, with breakfasts and picnic hampers from sister venture the Thornham Deli (which also offers four suites). Rooms are decorated in soft whites and greys, with a mix of antique, modern and bespoke furniture. There are tea, coffee and brownies on arrival. One rear-facing room has a white four-poster, large monsoon shower, freestanding bath, and distant sea views from a balcony. An accessible ground-floor room opens on to a courtyard. A bay-fronted ground-floor room has a bath by the old fireplace and Zoffany ‘Gondolier’ wallpaper. There is a sitting room, dining room with log-burner, and small garden. A concierge service can book restaurants, bicycle hire or a day’s sailing. Rise to a full English with free-range eggs, home-made granola, pastries and smoked salmon bagels, which can be served in your room. There are six self-catering cottages in Hunstanton, Thornham and Brancaster Staithe.
