"I was lucky enough to stay in your Beechnut Summerhouse Suite. We arrived late afternoon and was greeted by your fluffy cat and a warm welcome from the gentleman on reception, as soon as I saw the cat I knew I this was my type of hotel. Check in went smoothly and we were shown to our suite and offered a glass of fizz after been shown round. We were blown away, the suite was perfect. Well laid out, comfortable and pure luxury. We didn’t use the locally sourced paper box but this was a lovely extra touch. The wellies were also a fantastic idea, we used them while walking around the grounds while we still had the light. Dinner was wonderful. The food was presented well and cooked to perfection. Portions were a perfect size and I was able to eat all 3 courses (my favourite was the pudding, poached pear was simply wow and I’m not a pudding person!) The staff were friendly and polite. After our meal we wanted a drink but the bar was full so took advantage of relaxing in the lounge. We slept well, the bed was massive and very comfortable. Breakfast was lovely, a wide choice of food and juices. We both had a couple pastries and my hubby also had the full English. I’ve never seen such a well presented breakfast, he said it also was one of the best breakfasts he has eaten. Whenever we saw a member of staff we were greeted with a smile, everyone seemed so happy and eager to help. My only disappointment was that the treatment room was fully booked, if you want a treatment make sure to book in advance. I really hope I get the opportunity to visit again."
"We were celebrating 50 years together this weekend, obviously with lockdown restrictions going out for a meal was not going to happen. We ordered afternoon tea for 2 from the Norfolk Mead Hotel and collected it by driving to the door. A friendly employee put the box in our car boot and collected the envelope of money waiting there. We all wore masks. Felt very safe at this arrangement. The tea was really great, beautifully presented with minimum plastic packaging and most items lovingly wrapped in paper or cardboard with brown string. It all looked so lovley and tasted fantastic. We particularly liked the berry cheesecake, the thick slices of ham and the brownies. Now we want the restrictions to end so we can go back and sample a meal there and sit outside by the river in the summer. Well done, we are glad to support you in this great idea."
"We arrived and Dean could not have made us more welcomed. He was friendly and helpful and made us laugh (always important as far as I am concerned). We had two cottages and both were spacious and spotless with adequate amenities replenished daily. The cottages were really lovely, comfortable and private. Ours look out onto the garden and the river. The hotel has a number of walks around it which were very pleasant. Breakfast was excellent too with a good choice of cooked and fresh dishes. The location is perfect for easy driving to the marshes as well as inland to Norwich. Will definitely recommend. "
