We had planned to eat out but after the wonderful food we had in the bar the first evening decided to eat again the second night. Great attention to detail and very helpful staff who go the extra...

Stayed here for 4 nights for business, and this hotel was a real treat. The rooms were wonderfully furnished and spotless, and the bulding had lots of character. All the staff were very friendly, and the food (both breakfast and evening meals) were delicious. Would definitely stay here again.

Just about to give up and leave when came across impressive looking Castle Hotel so thought would give it a go. We weren't disappointed! A very generous plate of roast beef and all the trimmings. Everything...

Great hotel, lovely and quirky, ancient and homely. Everything was spotless, and the staff could not have been more friendly. The breakfast was worth staying for on its own, you can't beat real free range eggs!

My Husband and I were visiting Norfolk and had not booked a hotel. Well what a treat when we found the Castle. Lovely decorated rooms with good facilities and a fabulous shower. Had dinner in the bar that evening. Homemade Steak and Kidney Pie highly recommended. The staff are friendly and cannot do enough for you. Will definitely be back...

Stayed with a colleague and the staff, service and food were all good. But my colleague had someone enter his room about 01:00 in the morning obviously using a key. The visitor apologised and left immediately. When we discussed this in the morning i decided to try my room key in his lock and it also opened his door, not...
