Good Hotel Guide Review
New arrivals at this boutique B&B, in a ‘quiet, attractive street’ close to the seafront, are welcomed with ‘delicious’ afternoon tea and cakes. The creation of experienced hotelier Jeanne Whittome, it has been ‘designed and furnished to a high standard’, with ‘bold, contemporary and unique’ decor. Stylish bedrooms are painted in soft greys, with maybe one wall of statement wallpaper, and have a king-size bed, a bath and walk-in drench shower. Extras include cafetière coffee and biscuits. One ground-floor room has an in-room bath beneath a ‘delightful’ tiled fire surround, Zoffany’s ‘Gondolier’ wallpaper; another has access to a courtyard. A four-poster room has a balcony with a glimpse of the sea. ‘Immaculate housekeeping made our visit a pleasure.’ If you want more space, there are suites down the road at Thornham, above Ms Whittome’s deli, supplier of all manner of good things for a cooked or continental breakfast – home-made granola, free-range eggs, croissants and bagels. You can order a hamper to take with you when exploring the north Norfolk coast. The concierge service will help with restaurant bookings, bicycle hire, sailing, walking, bird tours and more.
