Had a lovely stay in the Sorrel room which was lovely and warm and had the most comfortable bed. We had a 2 course meal in the restaurant which was delicious and couldn’t fault the service. The bar area was lovely and welcoming with canapés served before dinner. Breakfast in the morning again was delicious and plenty of choice. Special thanks to Liam who was very helpful during our stay.
Stayed overnight in the chanterelle room. Exceptional customer service from Liam. Food was stunning as was the room and views. Car parking on site. Had a great nights sleep in a very comfy and spacious bed. Will definitely stay again. Thank you
This hotel is a gem - a great kitchen and really good front of house staff and a really nice atmosphere and environment Super Sunday lunch with friends today and good value too - the whole experience is excellent All round 10/10
This was our second stay at the Norfolk Mead, just for one night as we were in the area. We were delighted with a complimentary upgrade to Mulberry because the hotel wasn't full that night and it was made up with hypoallergenic bedding as requested. It is a spacious room with a large comfy bed, armchairs, real coffee for a cafetiere, heated towel rail, and quiet as it is at the back of the building overlooking the gardens. We thought dinner couldn't be as good as we remembered from our previous visit but it was, really delicious. The wines were reasonably priced. Breakfast was tasty as well but some things on the buffet, such as the pastries, were running out by 9 O'clock. All the staff were pleasant and helpful. We look forward to staying again.
Stayed here for a long weekend and sampled dinner at the restaurant, the spa and hired the hotel boat for a trip. Staff here were absolutely top notch, very friendly and made the place feel like a home away from home. Spa treatments were good, with a professional tone to proceedings. Room was homely, overlooking the front of the hotel. Bed was decent enough, and slept fine overall. Dinner in the restaurant was good, restaurant is on the cosy side, menu featured fresh and local produce and wasn't starchy fine dining. Which was in keeping with the place. If you want a home from home type experience and to feel like family then this is a place you will want to try.
This place is 100% worth the money you pay! The beds were so comfortable, the room was very spacious and the bathroom was luxurious! We originally booked the Horseradish room but got a complimentary upgrade to the Elderberry room! Each room came with complimentary brownies on arrival which is an added bonus!! We got the Sunday lunch and that was again, worth the money! Each component was delicious and packed with flavour as was breakfast!! We took a nice stroll round the grounds after lunch which was nice to see some of the broads, especially as the weather was on our side! All the staff made you feel comfortable and at home and was available to help at each point in our stay! Will 100% be returning!
We had booked a room and evening meal for our wedding anniversary, never been there before but the reviews were very good. We were so pleased with the warm welcome from all the staff, the lovely rooms and overall quality throughout the hotel and grounds. Our evening meal was exceptional and for breakfast even my kipper had been boned, just superb. We certainly would recommend this hotel to anyone and will book again for our special occasions.
This hotel is such a special place! The staff are so friendly and make you feel so welcome. The food is amazing! The breakfast is just as amazing, with a vast selection of breakfast treats and the best scrambled egg we’ve had anywhere! The deals this hotel offers are fantastic. This hotel is a hidden Norfolk gem and one we love returning too!
Superb Sunday Roast Dinner beautifully cooked. The rump of beef was a touch red and tender just how we like it. The veggies were tasty and the plate was very well presented. Prompt and friendly efficient staff and overall good value for money. Will go back again and again.
Very average in every way this hotel seems to have 5 star reviews and I am struggling to see why. The grounds of the hotel are spectacular but everything else is very average. We stayed here two nights in September with our dog. It states the hotel is dog friendly but in fact they are only allowed in the grounds of the hotel. Our room was a separate cottage which was large but very cold and it was not clean. The corners were full of dust and looked a little sad and worn. Perhaps that is why that particular room is dog friendly. However just because you have a dog doesn't mean you don't want clean and beautiful surroundings. There is no reason why dogs should not be allowed in the bar or lounges as there are wooden and flagstones floors so no carpets to worry about. The bar was small and pokey and the dining room used in the evening was small and very uninviting. I am sorry that this is a negative review but I was quite disappointed with the whole stay. The food was very good though and I reckon it is their chef that has upped the game of this hotel. The staff I must give a mention to though as they were all excellent and very friendly. Nowadays you have to be spot on with everything and this hotel does not measure up to this. I am sorry to say I would not return as I felt I spent most of my time in the rather drab cottage.…
