Total lack of responsibility for customer safety or service

We booked the hotel for one night away to spend some time enjoying the Norfolk coast. Nice location, staff were friendly when we arrived. Good sized room but a bit dated and without any original features. Evening meal was nice despite the lack of atmosphere in the restaurant and the waiter who couldn’t wait to take our order / clear the table. So all in all it was pretty average.

Then around 1 am the fire alarms went off. We all left the building but total chaos as staff member ignored all guests and on the phone to the manager and said he didn’t know what to do he was just an agency chef. Guests organised themselves and rang the fire brigade who turned up 15 minutes later. Other agency staff outside smoking and obviously worse for ware.

Manager arrived and told us it was a false alarm and not her fault and situation with guests became quite argumentative. Fire brigade said we could return to our rooms at our own risk. Manager said she was leaving chef in charge again as he now knew what to do. 10 minutes alarm went off again. We left at 2.30 with fire brigade there.

We wrote a complaint but were charged in full. Would not recommend. It was like staying at Fawlty Towers. Hope there is never a real emergency

Lovely hotel and restaurant

We don't often leave reviews but we think that this hotel is worth it. We had a fantastic stay at Easter, taking the family dog too. Great service and food. My husband was back for lunch yesterday and said that he had one of the best fish pies he has ever had - full of fish filling - which is high praise from him as he eats out for work regularly at the best London restaurants. We'll be back, hopefully soon!

Hit and Miss and Mouldy Toast

Room nice and clean but overpriced. Serving staff very friendly. Manager needs Customer Services Training. If she doesn't want to be there she should at least try and cover it up. Food was excellent until breakfast on the second day. Manager took order and got it wrong. Then served toast with mould on it. No apology from management and when receptionist asked on checkout if everything had been alright we told her about the mold and she smiled and said she'd heard all about it. We will not be returning.
