Rooms need better soundproofing. We were in a room between a person who snored for England and a couple who were arguing about what time their luggage needed to be ready for their return trip. They weren't shouting or being abusive but the lack of any adequate sound-proofing meant we could hear practically every word. Plus - hate to even realte this - the location of their bathroom in relation to our room meant we could hear all their "movements". Evenutally dropped off to sleep at 1am - only to be woken again at 6am when the luggage was being packed. Come on hotels - get your act together with regard to noise.
It was situated on the beach, the dining room was pleasant and the breakfast was good.
Our room was substandard, there was a hole in the wallpaper, cracked tiles on the bathroom floor, mould on the wall and the shower hose was corroded. The hotels response to this was they thought it was quite acceptable and well worth £110 per night.
Your staff are first rate, always smiling and helpful. The table service was fast and efficient (no plates dropped, even with waitresses running between table and kitchen). The time from ordering food to a plate at the table was so short, the chef must be phychic. At any rate he is worth his weight in gold. The menu and food was excellent, and real value for money (please do not raise the price based on our rating - some guests have to count every penny).
Reaching some rooms on the second floor was a bit of a nightmare, with steep steps going up and down. We were offered another room, but decided to keep the room, and use the stairs for careful exercise.
I missed the meal deadline by just 10 minutes but despite explaining I had driven for 6 hours in aweful weather, the restaurant decided they could still not provide me with a meal. Other guests were still being served so it would have been possible. When I questionned why the receptionist had failed to ask me if I would be dining and hence could have explained about the deadline for being served a meal, the staff member told me I should have read the details on the website and it was my fault. The room was extremely cold because there was an incorrectly fitted sash window that allowed a draft so intense it physically blew the curtains. I reported this matter to the manager who claimed the heating had just been switched on and the room would warm up, it did not and I sat wrapped in a blanket just to watch television. The heated towel rail did not work. Regardless of how much the hot tap ran, it did not produce hot water. I was told on arrival the bar would open until midnight, it closed at 11pm. A party was held in the ballroom and because Room 20 was directly above, it meant the music noise disturbed me until 11.15pm, and then the party started singing until around 12.30am. The music noise was so loud it prevented me having a conversation on the telephone. On arrival, I was given a car parking permit and asked to display it in the car. I explained it was raining hard, with a gale force wind, and I asked if the car park was monitored by a private company or by the staff themselves. The receptionist explained it was policed by the staff. I asked therefore that he noted my car registration details to save me getting soaked for a second time but he told me that unless the permit was displayed I would be clamped. The hotel room decor is old and shabby and badly in need of an upgrade. The shower pressure was completely inadequate. The Norfolk Hotel is a disgrace, it is not fit for purpose, and should not try and claim to be a business service.
It was a pleasant hotel with friendly and efficient waiting staff in the restaurant and a very good breakfast each morning close to beach and all the staff were friendly
Size of the bath towels very small toilet not very good took a long time to fill up and did not flush very well creaky floors all over the hotel but if you can ignore that it was a pleasant stay would go back
a real wecoming hotel. would return as soon as pos. friendly staff, nice location we love the room we were in...
there was nothing not to like....
My room was clean and comfortable. It was good value It met my needs-
The breakfast was a little sparse and not terribly hot, and I do like my food very hot. However, as the proce was very reasonable, I was not too concerned.
Was easy to find, staff were very good and breakfast was very nice.
The hotel is a bit dated, needs some new furniture in the rooms.
Ideal position. Good breakfast comfy beds
evening was quite noisy with music although it did stop at 11.00
Listed building with clean rooms and friendly helpful staff
Electrical noise linked to extractor fan in room below
all, never got to eat there
creaking bed and the maid coming in when i was making love to my girlfriend a, a bit of a blow , mygirlfriend then wanted to go ,so i had no breakfast, and i was a bit pissed of , i think the least you could do is to give me a free sat evening , look forward to your reply ,m e barker.
Breakfast Service - Fruit Juice on the menu but unlike tea/coffee you were not asked if you wanted any, this also happened to the couple sitting next to us. Breakfast Room - looks like a cafeteria not very welcoming. Getting to room on the second floor - we had 2 suitcases & 2 pull along bags, when we stepped out of the lift we had a little trouble finding out which way our room was and then we hat to go through a door & up & down flights of stairs to get to it.
Very nice spacious bedroom with seating area and good sized bathroom
Creaking floorboards, but no real bother really as under carpet.
Royal Norfolk Hotel is in a beautiful location directly opposite the beach and within easy walking distance of the town. Car parking is conveniently close to the Hotel entrance. Staff were welcoming and friendly. The room was spacious, airy, clean and light. The breakfast was excellent, and the staff were very helpful and pleasant. I would definitely recommend this Hotel and we will return.
The situation, we had a see view, staff very helpful and polite Breakfast was very good with waiter service for all courses.
The Hotel is a bit tiered needs some work done on it.
