Good Hotel Guide Review

One of the Guide’s most outré hotels occupies a ‘handsome’ red brick Georgian house overlooking the market square of an attractive town. Owners Hannah Springham and Andrew Jones took it over in 2018, after launching their first restaurant venture, in nearby Norwich, in 2017. Bedrooms waft guests back to the age of exploration and the Grand Tour. Choose Belle Époque Parisian Garret; Natural History, with decked patio and a bathroom behind a cabinet of curiosities; pretty China, a celebration of Willow Pattern. Each room has a marble bathroom, roll-top bath, drench shower, a record-player and vinyl discs, home-made biscuits. Public rooms are a constantly changing ‘cornucopia of delightful furnishings and curios’, every piece for sale. There is a cocktail bar, small beauty spa, all-day lounge menu. In the restaurant, Mr Jones, who has worked for the likes of Richard Corrigan, creates such dishes as roast cod, charred hispi cabbage, saffron and mussel cream. At breakfast there are smoothies; smashed avocado, field mushrooms and tomato confit; the full English. You can order a picnic hamper for a day on the Broads or the beaches of the North Norfolk coast. Reports, please.
