Travellers' Choice
The Ffolkes has been lovingly refitted and refurbished with a £2m investment. Think Poldark, think pewter, copper, Hessian, leather, soft velvet, and rustic wood. We have taken down barriers and let in the light to create a comfortable open space with nooks and crannies to suit even the most discerning of travellers. We currently have 6 double bedrooms available to book, with a further 18 bedrooms due late July 2017.

Excellent Pre-Break Communication received using the Web Site Chat facility. Upon arrival we were allocated Room 24, Large Double but upon investigation this was closest to busy road and managed to swap for Room 21, which whilst road noise was experienced it was not a major issue. Parking was easy and plentiful, location of Hotel was excellent to access Sandringham and North Norfolk. Our allocated room was perfect for our break, bathroom was large, plenty of storage and very comfortable bed and pillows. We tried the Feast food option on the first evening, the order by App system worked incredibly well, but it was rather cold even in the inside area. The choice of food by the individual outlets was good as was our selection of food, however think this probably works really well in the warmer evenings, and although we understood why plastic screens were placed to separate tables inside, we did not like this arrangement. The DJ played a good set of soulful chill out tracks. Breakfast worked really well with wide ranging selection of dishes, and well organised system of service and cleanliness, food was delicious and good quality products. We found the staff throughout the Hotel to be very helpful and efficient in carrying out their duties, we really enjoyed our weekend visit.

We stopped here for a wedding nearby, with a large party of family and friends. The hotel has a pleasant collection of rooms adjacent to the main building arranged in a motel style, which allows for easy access to/from cars. The rooms were generous and had all the usual mod-cons, and represents good value for money in consideration of similar venues. The air conditioning was excellent which, considering we visited on the one extremely hot day of the year was very welcome! The stand out performers for the hotel are; the food, which was delightful throughout; the children's playground, which is about as good as any you'll find anywhere; and the "street food" market next to the main building, which offers a beautiful sample of local food stands and clearly attracts a decent crowd each week. It should be noted that the hotel is relatively isolated from any large towns (you'd need a car to get around), but if you wanted a base in the fantastic countryside of North Norfolk, with a range of activities for foodies and kids, this is a really super option.

Coach trip had booked lunch at this restaurant the place its self looked good on the hole but the food was disgusting the Turkey was over cooked the veg must have been dropped into hot water and served Yorkshire pudding was across between cardboard and plastic I sent mine back as it was uneatable was offered a fry up as replacement declined as had breakfast on route Christmas pudding its self wes good but seemed as though it had been kept under hot lights for a time as the custard was stuck to the plate not a place we would ever go to again by the way the three other people left their dinners too.

I remember the the old place from the seventies and eighties; dark, beamy and atmospheric. Sometime later the rip out gang arrived and waved their blandifying wands at the Ffolkes. Now I am an old reactionary of the dont mess with my pub tribe, yes you could be anywhere off a main road in England, but decor apart this is a damn fine hotel for the money. The welcome and staff are lovely, the room I had was more than perfect, clean, nicely decorated in the beach hut school, and had the best shower I have ever experienced! The menu in the evening was short (in a good way) and had something for everyone. Well cooked and presented. A good nights sleep, and then a superb brekker, proper sausages (not those ghastly pinkie winkie bread based horrors), coffee on tap and the only complaint would be having to suffer piped musak at 0800! Small price to pay for an excellent nights stay, I’ll be back….

We were on our way to Cromer and decided to stop here for a coffee- what a fabulous place this is The decor was so well done it was a shame we couldn’t stay here this time but we will return to stay in one of the fabulous courtyard rooms The menu looked very good too and we could imagine staying here and enjoying the restaurant
