Large overcrowded hotelPosted Jul 1, 2014
Pros: Not much.
Location: We didn`t stay long enough to find out.
On arriving hotel looked ok and nicely situated. However, there is no table service and everything has to be ordered at the bar. Awkward and inconvenient. Hotel toilets very small and cramped for the size of the building. Had to book the room over the internet and was allocated a double room but was not allowed to know which room, that was only disclosed on arrival The room we were allocated was small and very basic. About the size of a single room with a small double bed and cheap, uncomfortable with cheap, uncomfortable pillows and duvet hardly big enough for two. Couldn`t get any sleep at all due to the constant noise through the walls and from outside. The sound of drunken yobs partying outside lasted half the night accompanied by screaming seagulls. We had booked the weekend but packed and left by five in the morning. It was intolerable.

Great location, poorly run.Posted Jun 9, 2014
Pros: The location and views.
Cons: An improvement in the bar and restaurant facilities.
Location: We enjoyed an evening watching the various types of boating that were going on during diner and again from a nearby coffe shop the following day.
What a fantastic location, with great views from our room. And the room was small but in good decorative order and clean. The seating area outside the bar/restaurant was a great place to spend a sunny evening. On the downside everything was just a bit grubby in the public areas, the reception counter was sticky, wine glasses were dirty, outside eating area was messy. I also had t wander about looking for the receptionist when we arrived. The bar is like any chain pub in the uk. No local dishes on offer, just the usual chicken, ribs, steaks etc and a carvey (which we didn't try). The quality of this food on offer was fine, just the choice was a bit disappointing. We decided not to have breakfast there, partly because diner wasn't very inspiring, partly because we had a lazy morning. To sum up, everything above the ground floor was great; clean, attractive, comfortable room with great views. Downstarirs was more like a Wetherspoons pub.

Good hotel overlooking Oulton BroadPosted Dec 30, 2013
Pros: It was friendly. The staff were welcoming and keen to make our stay enjoyable. It was clean and comfortable.
Location: We chose the hotel for its proximity to RSPB reserve Minsmere rather than anything else. However the hotels location on Oulton Broad was delightful.
We were staying for 2 nights and were given initially a room overlooking a roundabout. When we asked if we could have a room with a better view we were given one overlooking the water which was lovely. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. We only ate in the hotel on the first evening. The carvery was very reasonably priced, looked good with a wide selection. However the meat and Yorkshire puddings were too dry to be enjoyable. The breakfast was excellent with a wide choice of food. Would certainly stay there again.

On the BroadsPosted Oct 26, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel was very accommodating, the room was very comfortable, quiet and spotlessly clean. The evening carvery and morning breakfast were excellent. A very friendly staffed hotel, with special mention to Sue on reception, who went the extra mile to make our stay satisfactory.
