mistake but it was last minute
We quickly needed an overnight room as playing golf at Royal Cromer. The location was very good - 10 ninutes South of Cromer. And it was available. The hotel itself is set within a Caravan\Holiday Park and from our room we did have views straight to the beach - over 4 static caravans. First impressions were not good. The welcome at reception checkin was very friendly. The way to the room reminded me of an old office building complex. The room was almost a Premier Inn standard, but not quite. Cleanliness was OK although could have been better. The bathroom area did have a distinct odour. The communal areas were tired and must be difficult to upkeep. We had to leave at 7.30 so missed the breakfast and cannot comment. There was a singer on that night - Sunday - and despite the soundproofing he could still be heard up until 10:30pm. It was a late room for 1 night and it just about did the job but we would not stay again. Maybe it is early after lockdown and it will pick up on some details over the coming months. PS The caravan park\ static homes etc looked nice and very busy.

Great for a secluded break
Stayed for one night in the hotel itself (not a caravan). Site facilites good, and covid-safe. Breakfast served quickly and good standard. Site is right on the beach (10 steps down to the sand) and a 20 minute walk from the nearest shops/village/pub, though the site has its own mini-shop and bar.
