Good choice for a break

As a single traveller, I found the hotel friendly and welcoming. Service at breakfast was more than slow, but the food excellent. Would have appreciated some disabled parking - overall an enjoyable stay.

A lovely night at The Lifeboat Inn

Just a one night stay-we were welcomed warmly and shown to a lovely room overlooking the marshes -with the sea in the distance. The room was light and airy,bed comfortable and the bathroom well equipped. The optional evening meal was very good...we chose from the 'specials'. The breakfast menu was extensive and service was timely...given that there were a lot of guests to serve. Overall a relaxing,pleasant stay

Pros: Despite the fact that non residents are catered for,staff ensured residents were well looked after. A good blend of historical and modern features

Cons: We would be struggling to suggest anything by way of improvements!

Location: Close by is Hunstanton , a small seaside town with lots of character. There are walks along the coast, wild life sanctuaries and art galleries.

We'll be back!

Excellent service from every member of staff we met - all showed great willingness to help and prompt responses to requests and enquiries was the norm. Food and food service also excellent - we ate in the bed in the evening and enjoyed the atmosphere as well as the food. Situation also excellent - though we already knew that, that was the reason for our choice. Cleanliness and decorative standards could be improved and room comfort would have been improved with the addition of an easy chair or two. Bed fantastically comfortable and huge. In spite of the couple of quibbles, the experience was perfect for us and we're already planning another stay.

Nice place, shame about the bedrooms

This hotel was under administration at the time of my visit but you wouldn't know it by the excellent service given. The rooms were in dire need of an update but functioned as they should except for little things like the hangers being much too high and difficult to reach. As it was out on it's own we ate there each evening. The food was very good though pricey, but the accommodation was cheap which made up for it.
