Good Hotel Guide Review

Wide, tranquil views of salt marshes add to the relaxing atmosphere at the Nye family’s ‘first-rate’ Norfolk inn. ‘Cheerful, pleasingly confident’ staff, ‘modern, well-equipped’ rooms and ‘tasty, varied’ menus seal the deal. In the main building and sedum-roofed garden annexe, each bedroom is different: some rooms suit a family, others, with a private terrace leading to the Coastal Path at the bottom of the garden, are ideal for outdoorsy sorts. ‘Our spacious room at the top had great views over the marshes; a large bed even more comfortable than the one we have at home. Additional pluses: a flask of fresh milk; a quality coffee machine.’ ‘Splendid seafood meals’ are served in the conservatory restaurant – Brancaster oysters get a special mention – but chef Fran Hartshorne’s vegetarian dishes are worth paying attention to, perhaps wild garlic tart; roast aubergine, bulgur wheat (‘all good – the first time I’d ordered a veggie meal!’). Go out at low tide to watch the fishermen gathering mussels and oysters; ‘excellent coastal walks’ beckon beyond. (PA, ML, I and VA)

Guest comments

'It is rare to find a hotel that has a good location, nice rooms and excellent food. This has it all. We had a big room overlooking the sea marsh, which gave some great bird-watching when the tide was out. Comfy bed, lots of storage space, nice modern bathroom. We ate in on each of the four nights. I like fish and was thoroughly spoiled. My wife had vegetarian options on two nights, both got the thumbs-up. Starters equally good. Breakfast was fine: a perfect poached egg which can be a challenge for a kitchen. The staff were young, efficient and friendly. ' - Peter Anderson - September, 2017
