    « Fabulous! »

    We stayed overnight whilst on a coach tour. Our room was spacious, well appointed and the bed was very comfortable! The staff were very pleasant, the food good and the public rooms beautifully furnished and comfortable. The whole place was spotlessly clean. We could not have asked for more, would definitely stay again!

    « A wonderful hotel »

    The staff here are very friendly, efficient and welcoming. The hotel is extremely comfortable, the food is delicious and is situated just a stone's throw from the beach. I highly recommend it, but since it is always very popular you will need to book some time in advance to avoid disappointment.

    « Like something out of an Agatha Christie Novel »

    Like something out of an Agatha Christie Novel the Le Strange Arms Hotel, rambles around over various floors up and down stairs and in and out of corridors. Some rooms have great views some are small and claustrophobic. The Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful, there is very very limited e-mail service and just about no cell phone reception, so just enjoy the view and walks along one of the finest beaches in Norfolk. Most of the guest that stay here are early to bed and early to rise, Ideal for golfers and bird watchers. It also seems that the hotel bar closes, whenever one is thirsty. Came for a reunion, the dinner menu was interesting, and the next day's breakfast ok. Had lunch and a pint in pub next door. TIP: Good for Honeymooners and retirees

    « Anniversary treat »

    We went to this hotel for a one night stay to celebrate our anniversary. The actual hotel is great, clean, well laid out, great garden leading down to a the wonderful Old Hunstanton beach. The staff are friendly helpful and polite. The lounge is comfortable with a large open fire makes you feel relaxed and warm on a cold November day. Our room had a sea view, which was a full sea view as all the rooms on the North side of the hotel will have, no round the corner, or standing on tip toe type sea views. The room was clean, well laid out and the bed very comfortable with clean sheets and pillow cases. The Food, perhaps the hotel gave a better impression, but the food did not live up to the hotel. It was good but basic, well presented but uninspired. The breakfast was also not great. The buffet was well stocked and had we just wanted a buffet breakfast would have been acceptable. The cooked breakfast was, well adequate. Overall a very pleasant stay in a lovely part of north Norfolk.

    « annivarsary stay »

    the overall stay was lovely but only due to the great staff and cleanliness of hotel and location. The food really let it down not very good dinner or breakfast! quality of food was not very edible and for the price would expect ala carte as advertised on web site and menu.

    « quality hotel »

    My wife and i stayed for a long weekend as part of a birding holiday in norfolk. Very comfortable hotel, decor excellent, breakfasts, packed lunches and dinner could not be faulted. Staff most helpful. An easy 5* rating. See room comments below, moving between the main hotel (bar & meals ) and our room in the boathouse was a bit harsh in bad November weather. in finer warmer weather the boathouse would have come into its own.

    « An Excellent Hotel »

    My wife and I recently had a five night stay at this hotel and we had a wonderful holiday. We had a sea view suite which was very spacious, clean and well maintained. All the staff were very helpful and looked very smart in their uniforms. All our food was excellent with a choice of menus and locations to eat within the hotel complex. We would like to thank everyone for making our holiday so wonderful and have booked to return in March next year.

    « A simply wonderful 3 days »

    We recently had the pleasure of staying at yet another wonderful Best Western Hotel, this time Le Strange in Old Hunstanton. From turning the corner into the car park and viewing the breath taking views, to the time we left we had a fantastic break. We had a wonderful sea view room, which was one of the best we have experienced, capturing the famous sweeping, golden sands of the North Norfolk Coastline. What struck us from arrival to departure and at every stage in between, was the friendliness of the Hotel team - they were cheerful at all times and nothing was to much trouble, clearly something that came natural to them and a credit to the Hotel management/Best Western ethos. We will certainly be returning and would recommend the Hotel to people of all ages.

    Pleasant hotel overlooking the beach and the sea. Some rooms are better than others, once they have finished all the room updates the whole place will be much better. Nice meals and a superb Sunday lunch.

    « Standards have fallen »

    This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel. Last year we could find no fault, in fact recommended it to various friends. This year was totally different. The standard and quality of the breakfasts was very poor, overcooked or undercooked poor quality tasting items. Dinner in the adjoining Ancient Mariner restaurant was just as disappointing. Staff seemed miserable, not interested in guests, no one asked if meals were ok. We didn't enjoy meal. Didn't complain as don't feel it is the restaurants staffs faults, or chefs fault, it is the poor quality of the food that is delivered. We were happy with our room, but overheard several other unhappy guests complaining about their rooms and questioning how many stars the hotel had, We were planning to return next year, but have decided there are far better hotels around, with better places to eat.

    Lovely hotel but a bit outside Hunstanton. Staff very nice. large room with sea view. Ate in Mariners Inn which had a good friendly atmosphere. handy for Sandringham. Lots of seating areas to view the sunset

    « Warm and friendly by the sea »

    Superb location in Old Hunstanton with sea views and easy access to the beach for long walks. Comfortable bedrooms, cosy lounge with free papers to read and helpful and friendly staff. Our "deal" included dinner on the first night which was excellent.

    « A great place to stay »

    We have previously had a motor home so this was our first hotel stay in years, we were very impressed with both the room we had and the service given by very friendly staff and would recommend this hotel and the adjoining pub to anyone visiting this part of Norfolk.

    « Nice but not the sea view I'd requested »

    Nice location, poor reception area tucked away under the stairs. Organised as a birthday treat for my husband. I requested a sea view but we were given a twin room at the back, very disappointing as the view of the sea is the main reason to stay here. Not cheap either £135 a night so I cannot recommend as they did not fulfil my wishes. The room did have a nice walk in shower ensuite that looked like it has been installed recently. Breakfast was good, freshly cooked and tasty, although the service was not great, tables were not cleared so guests had to wait to be seated. It seems as if there were not enough staff to cope with the number of guests. the hotel was fully booked which surprised me for mid week in October. I would only stay again if we got a sea view we had asked for!! Especially as sea view rooms cost the same or less than I paid according to their website. I do hate feeling ripped off.

    « The breakfasts have gone downhill and so has the service! »

    We have stayed here many times before and we were looking forward to a few days away with our family. We have always said the breakfast here set you up for the day. However on our first morning we were very disappointed. We were shown to our table, which was very nice and in the conservatory, by a waitress who evidently was not happy in her job! Straightaway she came and asked if we wanted tea or coffee and toast but we hadn't had time to look at the menu and she was asking what we wanted for breakfast!! We all ordered the full house breakfast, not realising it wasn't the same as what it had been on previous occasions. When the meals came we were very disappointed not only in the size of the portions (! sausage, 1 egg (only just cooked!) , 1 tomato (partly cooked) 2 rashers of bacon ( very lightly done). We asked if there were any hash browns or beans and she said they were extra and we would have to wait 10 minutes for them to be cooked if wanted those. I did say I didn't get chance to look at the menu before she took it away. Anyway we had early finished eating the bits that we could when she bought a plate with 4 hash browns on it and a bowl with beans in. When we left she said "make sure you ordered what you want all at the same time tomorrow". Faulty Towers has nothing on this place! However on the second morning that particular waitress wasn't on and it was all different again, the atmosphere was totally different - the waitresses were happy and pleasant and couldn't do enough for us. As for the rooms, one of our rooms was a bit cool as the window didn't shut and the other was red hot as the window wouldn't stay open and we think that although the radiators weren't on, the pipes ran through it to other parts of the hotel keeping it hot. The rooms themselves were looking a bit tired, the carpets could with cleaning but otherwise well appointed with views over to the beach and sea beyond. Having said all that we will go back, just hope we don't get the same waitress but even so we know now what is on the menu.

    « Poor food »

    I was very disappointed with the food. You didn't get enough to feed a child. Melon starters 2 slices faned1 slice of carrot, 3 green beans 1folder of broccoli the bed was very fatty thin slices and very raw all very pretty but not at all filling ask for butter for cheese and biscuits they didn't bring any.staff not pleasant. Very slow service waited 45 mins for dessert to be brought.best western. I would like to see worest Weston.

    « Good location and overall really relaxing ...but room to improve »

    I have often visited the pub (Ancient Mariner bar - that will be a separate review), but never stayed so I treated myself. The hotel is a modernised old house right on the beach with good sea views. It is tastefully modernised and my single room was extremely well appointed and clean. Breakfast is good and plenty of choice? Downside? the hotel is used for functions and as I write this in my hotel room on the second floor there appears to be an overspill (smokers?) either staff or function guests shouting and being generally noisy, detracting form the otherwise peaceful environment. I don't mind people enjoying themselves but not if it affects others. Not sure if I'll come back now...

    « AMAZING VIEWS »

    We visited this old style Hotel again this year for a long week-end and were allocated a sea view room in the newest part of the Hotel. The room was lovely, but the Bathroom was excellent. Large walk in shower and lots of space to move around within the Bathroom. The room was more than adequate but possibly a chair too many as it was difficult to watch the television which was on the dressing table because of chairs. Th Hotel boast two lovely conservatories at the front of the Hotel. One for breakfast and the other for sitting around and relaxing. Just what the Doctor ordered. The views from the front are great and the fact that it is right on the beach overlooking the beach huts and sand dunes makes it a wonderful place to spend a few nights.

    « Superb »

    Perhaps my wife and I are just easy to please, but I would rate a recent 3 day stay as excellent in all aspects. The lunches and dinners were, if anything, better than previously, and the service was first-rate. Very accommodating in terms of going the extra mile (Matthew and your female colleague on reception - particularly helpful, and went out of their way to re-route us via GPS to avoid horrendous accident on A14). All other staff could not do enough to make us feel welcome as well, and room clearance, plus decoration was first-classl. And it worked out cheaper than a cruise! I cannot believe that the reviews opposite relate to the same hotel and would recommend anyone who is now dithering as to whether to holiday there or not, to try it - you will be pleasantly surprised.

    « Super location but hotel disappointing »

    We have stayed numerous times at this hotel but had not been recently, so really looked forward to returning for a break. We booked a dog room and were told they were now located in the separate block - we couldn't have been more disappointed. The room was on the ground floor, extremely dark and cold, it smelt very damp, and the carpets and soft furnishings were tatty and stained, Nothing felt clean or inviting and we really felt like second class guests because we had a dog! Am not sure we would risk booking to stay here again even without the dog.

    « Disappointed »

    Having drove 2 hour's through Friday evening peak time traffic,we arrived at a wind swept Hunstanton (Ie strange hotel).We had been to Hunstanton on many occasions over the past 12 years and this was always a place that we had wanted to stay.We found the receptionist who promptly gave us our room keys,walking us out of the main doors into the dark stormy night pointing through the darkness to an outline of a building about 200 yards away "that's your room ,over there" (The boathouse),we battled our way against the wind to a completely unlit building,i had a torch on my key ring so after about 10 minutes we were able to find a door that matched our key,after trying the key for another 15 minutes we were able to enter the building ,we then spent another 15 minutes trying to get into our room , I'd had enough and decided to go back to reception,as you can imagine I wasn't to happy as we had booked a table for 8.15pm and it was almost 8.00pm,i approached the receptionist who could tell I wasn't to pleased and offered us the last room available in the hotel,so I rushed back through the storm to inform my wife and collect our bags.W e managed to get into our second room which was small ,drab and in need of some major decoration.We rushed out where the adjacent pub supplied us with an excellent meal.Back to the room and after 10 mins we were still trying to get in,this timely wife insisted to go to reception,having told of the ongoing problems we'd had she informed my wife that I must have been deactivating the keys with with my mobile phone (why hadn't we been told earlier in the evening)! However she activated the key and we were in.After 15 minutes we both became hot as the room was air less,i looked at opening the window,it was bolted shut and no chance of much needed air,back down to reception,and having explained our problem the only solution was to try our original room where the window opened.Down to breakfast,we decided not to take our mobile phones as we didn't want to be locked out,however walking back to the room we were again locked out,this time the receptionist couldn't answer the reason why our key had been deactivated.We were not on our own ,other couples had similar problems with keys.I wasn't very impressed with this hotel,apart from the obvious key problem,i don't consider it good service when you are asked to fumble in the dark in a strange unlit building,there should be someone available to guide you to your rooms! Also had ordered a morning paper but had to walk through the rain and collect it from reception (where's the service). This hotel is in a good location but I have had better rooms in local b&b's,this is a pricey stay with very little value for money.I haven't felt strongly before to criticise about hotels etc but this could not be ignored!

    « Stunning location Otherwise disappointing »

    We come here for the location, right on the beach. The food has never been excellent but previously breakfast has been. This time it was frankly sloppy. Packet kipper fillets in four star hotel? A sausage that was actually raw inside. Complaint only brought grumpy and silly excuses. The hotel advertises itself as dog friendly but it is not. They allow dogs only in two sub standard rooms in the boathouse annexe and they won't even allow them in the bar. The hotel seems to care mostly about big parties and weddings. Individual guests are not very well treated. We will go again but only for the location.

    « Lovely setting and very comfortable »

    We arrived on a fine autumn day after booking last minute on line. From our first contact at reception to the coffee we had in the lounge after a delicious dinner, our whole experience was first class. The Chef's recommendations at dinner were perfect, the salmon perfectly cooked as were the vegetables. We ended the meal with coffee and tasty chocolates in the lounge, a nice touch. Only one small down side, the shower had inconsistent temperature control and occasionally it was too hot then too cold!

    « Lovely setting »

    Staff at this hotel were all lovely kind, caring and thoughtful. Thought it wasn't quite value for money. Stayed 3 nights very clean with nice bedding and towels. One room had air con and other one didn't so was stifling. Restaurant food varied a little for dinner. Breakfasts were good quality. Hotel could do with a shuttle bus service as many elderly people some without cars and couldn't walk easily to bus stop. Would stay again though.

    « Nice hotel, shame about the dog room »

    We have visited the Le Strange as guests on two previous occasions, and have just returned from a third. We have always liked the quality of the restaurant, the courtesy and professional service of the staff, and it's great location. This impressive English country hotel is just a few yards from a really nice beach. We also like the fact that this hotel is dog friendly. Previously, we have stayed in the set aside dog owners room in the main Hotel. Dogs have now been moved, however, to the boat house. This is a separate three floor building which is just past the adjacent pub. The two dog friendly rooms are on the lower level. Good points: These rooms are nice and large, with a well set up bathroom and adequate storage. The rooms are quiet and have their own small patio area with table and 2 chairs. Now the not so good stuff! We paid an extra £15 per night to have our Westie with us. But it has to be said, the soft furnishings, carpet and mattress all seemed to have seen their best service elsewhere. The armchairs were a bit threadbare, the carpet was a rather grubby mustard colour and the mattress was decidedly lumpy with a dip in the middle. My wife also had to ask for the cobwebs etc to be swept away from around the outside door. The room was also rather dark, as it is effectively below ground level. These niggles were thrown into sharper focus by the good quality seen in the rest of the Hotel. As is so often the case with dog owners, we felt we were paying more, but getting less. We understand that other guests don't always want to be cheek by jowl with dogs and their owners. But by the same token, a four star hotel shouldn't be offering dog owners 2 1/2 star accommodation.

    « Kind and caring staff! »

    My husband and I had the twin sea view room and our Granddaughter and partner had the double sea view room. My husband and I are elderly, disabled and I have had a serious illness! I was unwell during our stay and the staff were so concerned and very caring. This was so helpful and I would love to be able to return again at a later date!

    « "Best" Best Western Hotel »

    Excellent hotel in stunning location - can't be bettered. We've now been back 6 times to this hotel which I think underlines how good it really is. In fact since I started giving these reviews for the hotel it has become harder to book the dates we want! Very popular.

    « What you really need to know about this hotels »

    The hotel has a great location but 4 nights with dinner bed and breakfast was not ideal. The meals were nothing to write home about, and if you are a vegetarian, little choice. Some of the staff are delightful; others put the fear of God into you should you need something at the table sooner than she thought normal. Service can be very slow. Probably the worst thing about the meals was the absurd 'supplementary' charge should you deign to order fish at breakfast. No matter if you had nothing else cooked. Similarly, although the a la carte dinner menu included ice cream, if you wanted one scoop and not 3 for £6, you had to tell them that it was ridiculous to be charged £6 for one scoop, and why couldn't you order one scoop of ice cream instead of their 'set' desserts? The hotel mere,y needs to apply some common sense to the rules- which they did on pointing it out! The rooms with the sea views are glorious. The ones at the back a bit stuffy- hard to get a breeze through. The location of the hotel and the downstairs sitting rooms are the best thing about the hotel.

    « Mediocre »

    Stayed here for 2 nights at the bank holiday weekend with the family to celebrate our anniversary. We was pre warned that there might be a wedding party but our room would not be effected by any noise. As it wasn't very good weather we sat in the conservatory but was joined by the guests of the wedding party after the ceremony, we felt a bit awkward as we felt we shouldn't be there but didn't had no where else to go. I think the hotel should have saved a part of the hotel where guests could relax and not be intwined in a strangers wedding. Noise from the wedding actually wasn't too bad apart from the occasional gathering of drunken smokers outside in the evening. The hotel food lacked substance on the breakfast and the Roast dinner. All food was on a small scale, trying to be a la carte but just didn't need to be when you just want an old fashioned roast or fry up. The restaurant next door does great food!

    « Dinner ok »

    We had booked in to the main hotel brassiere where we where taken to a table to just have the menus dumped down so I assumed that's where we were sitting, no mention of soup of the day or anything else we then sat there for a while before our order was taken when we asked what the soup was the waiter was clueless, we then ordered our food and as the waiter went to leave I asked if we could please order drinks to which he replied um ok that's fine what do you want !! We didn't wait long between meals. My lamb was not rack it was 2 cutlets which were tiny with a jus which was more like watery gravy I was not impressed at all. My brownie also contained nuts which it did not state on menu so could not eat that as dislike nuts. Our bill was brought over to our table by a girl while we where eating our dessert couldn't Believe it, all in all poor food and service staff need more training!!!!!!

    « Overnight anniversary stay »

    My husband & I booked a last minute overnight stay to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary, we'd booked a sea view double & on checking in received a lovely upgrade to a sea view suite - the hotel were hosting a wedding & I'd received a letter the day before to state we may experience noise until approx 12.30am, so we'd partly been upgraded to avoid noise in the newer building which would host the wedding party & also as an anniversary treat. Check in was friendly & swift, our room wasn't quite ready which was a slight disappointment but we took a stroll along the beach & were very pleased with our room once we were in! Lovely living room area with desk, TV & chairs with a bay type window & seaview, good bedroom area with giant bed & further seaview window & respectable bathroom with decent sized bath & over bath shower with a nice tray of complimentary toiletries. We ate in the adjacent ancient mariner inn in the evening which was very pleasant and enjoyed our breakfast in the hotel the following morning - hot selection cooked to order & better than expected quality with friendly staff. All in all a surprisingly good stay - Hunstanton is quite a local regular place we visit so I wasn't expecting quite such a lovely stay, would certainly do it again.

    « Beautiful hotel with excellent sea views and access »

    I stopped over for a night with my father, we shared a comfortable well sized twin room. The room was very clean. The bathroom appeared to have been recently refurbished. The hotel is located by the seafront. An excellent location.

    « It's OK but the view is amazing! »

    Tired and old fashioned decor. Clean room, very friendly staff at reception who was happy to upgrade all three of our rooms at no extra cost due to a wedding taking place at the time of our stay. Breakfast is overpriced for what it is, cheap bacon, no fresh fruit. One of the waiters looked a bit scruffy but was polite. Room service was quick, discreet and eff. Overall good stay and will return as it's good value for money and you must visit for that view!

    Stayed for two nights in August 2016. Lovely sea views from our room which was comfortable and clean. The staff were friendly and efficient. Lovely area to stay, would definitely go back to explore a bit more.

    « Not good enough »

    I booked here as the pics look beautiful of the area, the area is beautiful. I am a Diamond Best Western member, I used to use them all the time for work, the reward scheme is now worthless, I decided to start using it for personal breaks away too as they said if you spent 30 nights away each year they would make you diamond for life, this would have been great with perks such as: Free room upgrade free paper welcome gift early check in late checkout discounts just as I was due to qualify they introduced a new tier, they said you now get a welcome gift and you still get upgrades. The day we arrived here, we didnt get a welcome gift, we didnt get an early check in or late checkout and I wouldnt want to, it was a disgusting room, (I am well aware that the hotel can now respond without my being able to counter what they say, so I will also upload photos of the state of the tired room and revolting bathroom with missing tiles, missing skirting board and mould marks) What I will thank them for is the early wake up call from the bin collection across the street from the bottle bank, I told them it was an anniversary break. They also told me they had no room upgrades but on going onto the BW website I found there to be rooms available, (when confronted, they told me these were twin upgrades), if true, then be careful as the website was allowing me to go right through and book a range of rooms. The outside of the hotel is lovely, it does lead straight onto the beach and is a nice 20 minutes walk into New Hunstanton and the promenade. The beach is beautiful. The pub next door has a nice outside eating area but the food is overpriced and there are far better places to eat nearby. I'd recommend Fishers of Hunstanton, although watch your bill they overcharged on two items on our bill, by 9GBP.

    « Wedding venue »

    Our son was married here last week and we cannot praise the team at the Le Strange highly enough. From start to finish the service was exemplary, the organisation slick, the food first class. We stayed for two nights despite being local and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our room was spotless and well equipped with a stunning sea view. On the day of the wedding Tanya and her team went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure this was a perfect day. Every member of staff was excellent but special mention must go not only to Tanya but to Ryan, for his unfailing sense of humour and courtesy and to Carla for her lovely easy going help in the evening. We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel as a holiday/short break/restaurant destination and without doubt as a wedding venue. Sincere thanks to all concerned - you are a credit to the hotel.

    « Fantastic location but food portions not great! »

    On arrival we were met with a car park that was completely full. They need someone to monitor it as people use the car park for the beach. Place was clean and tidy, lady on reception was friendly and welcoming. Young lad running the bar (Kieran) was fantastic and did an amazing job considering he was on his own. He's an asset to the hotel. The bed in the room was huge and very comfortable, good size room but bathroom needs updating. This place has fantastic wifi which is much needed as there is no phone signal. Food portions in the hotel are on the economical side. (Very small portions) The views are stunning and if you head out the front of the hotel during the evening you will see hundreds of rabbits running round on the massive lawn area. Drinks are a bit pricey but you expect this with a hotel with such great views. £5 small glass of wine, £3 very small latte, £1.80 for a small bottle of Coke. We would definitely go again.

    « Sunday lunch »

    My friend & I visited this pub on the recommendation of a friend and were not disappointed. I is situated in old Hunstanton and offers a hotel next to the pub. Sunday lunch was good and we chose to eat outside to benefit from the sunshine. It gets very busy so would recommend that you get there early. Afterwards we went for a walk along the beach which is glorious.

    « Fab Location. »

    Just arrived back from a three night break at this hotel. Having stayed many times over the years in the past,we decided to go again,little had changed to the hotel,other than some areas had been redecorated. Breakfast was o.k,not the best breakfast we have had,and there was a considerable extra charge if you wanted smoked haddock and poached egg or kippers!! As the cost of breakfast is £15 surely that should include all that's offered on menu? Drinks in hotel bar very expensive and also very meagre!! My husband ordered a Jameson's whiskey,when it was measured out it was measured in what can only be described as a cap full,(it barely covered the bottom of the glass)!! So be ware!! There was a wedding on whilst we were there,and our room was right above where the evening disco was,the noise level was horrendous,we rang down to reception and luckily they had a room which we were able to move to overnight,it was a hastle having to move once we had gone to bed,but at least we were able to sleep. We were told that they had informed us of the forthcoming wedding via email,but sadly we didn't receive. My advice would be to ask if there are any weddings taking place before you book!! All in all had nice stay and would recommend this hotel for the prime position as it is right opposite the beach.

    « Diamond Wedding Celebration »

    We were invited to join family friends celebrating their Diamond Wedding. Check in was efficient, but very impersonal - not particularly welcoming. Our room with a king sized bed, was spacious enough, although there was only one easy chair and an upright chair. The bathroom was compact, but the shower was excellent. The lounge was very comfortable, and the grounds well provided with tables and umbrellas with wonderful sea vistas. The dining room was well proportioned with plenty of seating in a verandah looking out over the lawns and out to sea. The hotel made no attempt to mark the diamond wedding. The food was very good, but the vegetarian option was very limited. Breakfast was excellent, with the cooked option made to order. We thought it was quite expensive even though it was peak season.

    « Special break »

    Decided to take our elderly parents away for a special break as they love Norfolk we thought we'd book this hotel. The rooms were very comfortable although with the warm weather it would have been good to be able to open a window. A fan was provided though. The hotel itself was in a great location with views over the beach and the sea. There is a pub/restaurant attached which has an outdoor terraced area. We used the hotel restaurant as we wanted a special meal with our parents. The service and quality of food was great. We also had breakfast and this was good with an excellent range of breakfast food items. In summary a great hotel for a special treat, great for a romantic getaway or as a base for exploring Norfolk.

    « Very comfortable hotel in a fantastic spot and hope to return. Would just eat elsewhere »

    We arrived as a family party of six (three couples) for a family celebration, staying for two nights. The rooms were very roomy and well-equipped. The first evening we were able to walk down to the beach which was really easy access from the hotel. This was followed by a lovely meal in the adjoining Ancient Mariner Inn. A tip would be to look at their website before going (we didn't) to see if there are any dining vouchers you can use. We could have had two meals for the price of one if had we realised beforehand. A comfortable bed ensured a good night's sleep and we went down to a hearty breakfast. There is a lounge to relax in and watch the world go by and a lawn with plenty of seating where you can look out to sea, The downside to this break was the evening meal in the Oak Room restaurant. Not a cheap menu, we were expecting something really special. As a vegetarian, my heart sinks when I see the usual and unoriginal mushroom risotto and this was the only vegetarian option on the specials menu. Not only that, it was unavailable! There also was not a vegetarian starter option on the specials. On the standard menu, there were just two vegetarian main course options which were both pasta (why do some places never offer vegetables to vegetarians?!!!) The one I chose was woefully inadequate. About a dozen dry pasta parcels with very little taste. If it hadn't have been a celebration meal, I would have made a comment then and there. None of the desserts had any indication whether they were suitable for vegetarians. Everyone else in the party had the roast dinners which looked very artistic but not very balanced - lashings of meat with very little vegetables (one small carrot for example). What did seem a little odd was that all the while we were in the restaurant, there was no-one else eating there. Why then was our long table squashed into the corner so the waiters couldn't actually get behind our diners along one side to serve us?! Overall though it was a great short break. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Special mention to Ryan and Andy who engaged with us and carried out their duties with dedication.

    « Lunch at Oak Bar »

    My wife and I called into the Oak Bar around 2-pm needing something light to eat. We chose the seafood sharing plate which had a variety of cold seafoods. It tasted amazing and well satisfied our small hunger. We also had a pot of tea, which - even though it was tea bag - it was one of the best 'cups' for a long while. The service was attentive and very friendly. A great spot for a quick bite.

    « Clean and cosy »

    Great couple of nights at le strange. Really clean room - on arrival we were given a suite, perfect as we us our 22month old with us. Unfortunately they had run out of spare roller beds so we all bunker together. The room was lovely - really big and very clean. Breakfast was good - friendly staff and good food. The only thing I would say it that it boosts a children's play area - it is two spring toys and a bench shaped like a pirate ship!!! Not exactly entertaining for the littlens. However, there is a big lawn to run around on and the beach is literally a stroll away. Will return.

    « Perfect seaside location »

    We stayed here for a short break and enjoyed a proper English seaside holiday with lovely sunny weather. The hotel overlooks a long lawn with garden tables, chairs and benches, which leads straight to the sand dunes and beach. The Ancient Mariner pub, which has the same owners, adjoins the hotel and serves food and drinks outside. However, even when busy, it seemed very relaxing to sit in the garden and look at the seaview. The hotel itself had everything we needed. Our room was spacious with dual aspect windows, including a lovely seaview. It was nicely furnished and had a spotless modern bathroom. There were ample lounge areas in the hotel. Food and drinks were served in a cafe/bar and also the main restaurant which had a nice conservatory area. Breakfast was good and there was a good choice of menu at dinner at a reasonable price. Staff were friendly and helpful. We did have a couple of small problems, one regarding the room on arrival and another regarding a long wait at dinner for the main course followed by undercooked fish, but both were dealt with well by the staff involved and would not deter us from a return visit. In fact I fully intend to re-visit whenever I can get away for a seaside holiday.

    « A good overnight »

    We had an overnight room/dinner/breakfast deal. The hotel is modest and pleasant, the style and quality of decor etc being a tad outdated and a tiny bit tired which, in this case added charm, especially taking account of the location ( unassuming and charming) We arrived early and had lunch in the bar-toasted sandwiches and disappointing on quality and price. However the room was very clean if small(that being said we had one near the lift for mobility reasons-likewise a walk in shower: That showed a helpful room assignment. The small ensuite included a fabulous shower-largish stall, big door and excellent shower fitting. Dinner was fine- lovely food and excellent service and breakfast also a very good standard. All told a good place.

    « One night in Hunstanton at Le Strange Hotel »

    We have just returned from a night at the Best Western Le Strange Hotel in Old Hunstanton. We stayed in a sea-view room (Room 121) which had a recently refurbished bathroom with a large walk-in shower. When I could not turn the temperature down on the shower it was dealt with quickly and efficiently- it was me not the shower! It was a hot night but there was a very welcome fan in the room. We ate in the pub garden right next door and had a very good meal with a fabulous view of the sea and the sun going down - beautiful. A walk on the beach later, accessed from the end of the garden, reminded us of Cape Cod it was so lovely. It was the first weekend of the school holidays but we had no trouble parking as the attendant from the adjacent car park just moved the cones for us. Hunstanton beach was packed and there were hundreds of people and some noise from jet skis but, just around the corner, is the beautiful Old Hunstanton beach with a cafe and toilets as well as the Lifeboat station. We caught the Coast Hopper bus from opposite the Post Office in Old Hunstanton and got off just past the turn to the Lifeboat Inn in Thornham and did a superb 4 mile walk back along the coastal path to the hotel. The last half mile or so is along the beach which has many shells and seabirds on the sandbanks. A perfect wedding anniversay weekend!

    « Nice hotel in lovely location »

    My wife & I spent one night in this hotel and we were delighted with overall standard of the hotel. Reception staff were friendly and courteous - they went out of their to assist us. Our bedroom had recently been refurbished and everything in the room was of the highest standard.

    « 5 star for location and facilities »

    I want to focus on how special this place is in terms of location. Its in the quiet Old Hunstanton only a couple of minutes drive from busy Hunstanton should you need to get to a cashpoint or to a convenience store. The hotel is situated on the same coastal road that offers an abundance of things to do within close proximity i.e nature reserves, restaurants etc. The setting of the hotel is perfect, with a landscape garden in the front where you can sit down inside and out and watch the seaviews. Beyond the garden and 2mins walk away is the Old Hunstanton beach. You walk down a little alleyway passed the RNLI Lifeboat house and next to the beach cafe, onto the gorgeous beach. You can walk, windsurf or kite surf which are all great activities. As for the bedroom, we stayed in Room 107 and it was luxurious only because we had two great big windows in the bathroom and bedroom and both had seaviews, absolutely beautiful. The downside of the room is that the furniture and carpet is outdated. As is the rest of the hotel. It needs a fresh look, perhaps with sea colours which will make the rooms lighter and more inkeeping with its outside surroundings. I would also say that although most of the room was clean, there are areas which were missed, like hoovering under the bed and the doors were dusty and a bit dirty. Also the hotel restaurant had a really lovely menu but quite expensive between £14-£20 for a main. The character of the pub situated literally next door to the hotel, called The Mariners Arms was great to have as another place to drink and eat with seaviews but they need to include healthier options in the menu. If all those negative points were fixed, my overall rating would have been 5 star.

    « We love staying here..... »

    Have stayed and dined here three times in 9 months and will be returning as soon as we can find another excuse. It's not top end, it's not cheap, the food is not gourmet, the service is not first class, the fittings and fabric are not new....but it is just perfect! There is no hype or pretence, WYSIWYG, the staff are friendly and efficient, it overlooks the sea, the beautiful beach is a stroll away, our rooms have been faultless and we love the big lounge/ conservatory. An outpost of Norfolk Norfolk rather than London Norfolk......?!

    « awful service »

    we did not stay at this hotel so I cannot comment on rooms, breakfast etc. We booked a table in the restaurant on Saturday evening because we wanted and expected a really nice meal. When we arrived we were shown to a table by an unsmiling member of staff,menus were put in front of us. We waited for somebody to take our drinks order but no such luck. The lady on the table near to us was complaining about her foot and three waitresses were crowded around her. My husband asked if anybody was going to take our order. No response. We got up, walked out and nobody even noticed!! Not a good experience at all.

    Another excellent stay. We visit this hotel 2 or 3 times a year and are never disappointed. Staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Beds are comfortable and the food and room service is very good. The beach is a few minutes walk and sunsets are spectacular. There is a lift if you prefer not to use the stairs.

    « Wonderfully peaceful room with great bathroom »

    After finishing the 46mile Peddars Way walk we were overjoyed to be shown our quiet, spacious room and a very welcoming bath. Dinned in the Mariners pub next door which was plain and simple pub Faye but well cooked. Breakfast was excellent and available early.

    « Not Worth a Visit, Poor Value for Good Money »

    Despite asking when booking for a superior twin room accessed via a lift, this was not provided as non are available, but we were not informed when booking. In view of this, the guests appear to be generally older, as we are, and the lack of a lift to the new building additional rooms requires someone available to tote the luggage, we managed to get help from a kitchen person. Room was/is shabby and in need of much of refurbishment or at least a lot of TLC. The room is not superior it just has a sea view, a superior room has a higher level of facilities with in the room or enhanced décor etc. Room 122 appears to be the same as other rooms, but with a sea view. Clothes hanging facility is far less than a metre wide, tea making area even narrower which includes the hair drier in the dark recess with a mirror at the back. Single glazed windows let in noise from both sides from the two car parks. One twin bed is pushed hard up again the wall. Taps on the wash basin, spouts too short can't get hands under the water flow. Superior room???? with a shower over the bath complete with a clinging plastic shower curtain. Despite putting out the 'Do Not Disturb' hanger, housekeeping woke us by entering the room. Thursday 7 July our room was not serviced by the housekeeper even though the green hanger was on the door handle, therefore it was necessary to ring reception for tea, milk etc., so we had no clean towels made up beds or room tidied. Great Western claim this to be a superior room, it doesn't come close. A superior room should be actually superior with in the rooms four walls, not just because it has a sea view. For example this hotel fails due to all the above plus, GFW should effect a proper repair to damaged wall paper not just a large wallpaper patch stuck over damaged wallpaper, repaint windows where the paint is coming off, or damaged, or poor condition. Over the years we have always had in hotel breakfasts, during the 5 or 6 UK away breaks in the last 12 months, around 25 nights in all, we have breakfasted in the hotel, but I'm not prepared to pay £15 each simply because the nearest alternative option is some distance off. In short this hotel does not provide value for money for accommodation, food or drinks, it's only redeeming aspect is the staff who are generally very good.

    « Generally good, some tweaks needed / Room 202 update »

    Firstly I would like to mention that we also suffered from the Fire Alarm debacle, which Nick H has already described accurately in an earlier review. However, I would like to add that the fire alarm had already gone off twice at lunchtime on the same day, again resulting in the evacuation of the building. The alarm system should have been checked by an engineer immediately. Also, during the midnight false alarms, no effort was made to ensure that the property was empty. We did get one knock on our room door, but that was it. Furthermore, neither of the night porters had a copy of that night's guest register to check that all residents had left the building and were safely accounted for. Hopefully the management will learn from this episode. We booked this hotel at the last minute, and were given room 202, virtually the last one available. After booking, I had noticed a few poor reviews of this room previously, so would like to put the record straight. Sure, it was cosy, probably one of the smallest doubles in the property, but perfectly adequate. There was no problem with the temperature (two windows provided a through breeze) and there was no noise from the 'Ancient Mariner' to concern us. The pub was very quiet after around 9.30 while we were there, and you are not directly above it anyway. Had we booked earlier, I am sure we would have got a larger room, but room 202 was perfectly satisfactory. The hotel itself is very nice, a bit old fashioned in style. The staff were all helpful and friendly, but the stand out feature is the hotels position, overlooking the quiet beach, with the Wash beyond that, with the bonus of a beautiful sunset on both of the evenings we were there. Marvellous. Notwithstanding the fire alarm issue, our only grumbles concern the food and drink available. At breakfast there was a tremendous range of cereals, pastries, yoghurts and fruit available, but this was let down by the 'full english'. The fried eggs were not thoroughly cooked, some of the albumen being in its raw state, the grilled tomatoes had hardly seen a flame, and the beans were virtually cold. These issues were soon rectified on request, but It was a shame that these simple errors occurred in the first place. Also there were no tinned tomatoes available. Some people prefer these at breakfast and it was astonishing that they did not have a few cans in the kitchen. The evening meal in the hotel was top quality however, although the portion sizes were 'modest' and need to be increased. The meals in the Ancient Mariner were equally good, and were more substantial. Finally, I would like to mention the drink prices. In the hotel they were expensive, but what you would expect. Unfortunately, the prices in the Ancient Mariner appeared to be the same. This is supposed to be a separate pub (although physically connected to the hotel) and I think £4 for a pint of standard bitter is excessive. In spite of these grumbles, we are sure to return, in particular for the location, which takes some beating!

    « Lovely location for this 4* hotel »

    We stayed here for a weekend. This was a very good 4* hotel. The bed was firm, just right for me. We did not book in for breakfast so can't comment on the food. We were in room 219. The room was very clean and comfortable. The wifi was easy to get onto and a good speed. There are coffee sachets and a biscuits in the room. Our room looked out to the sea and we were very pleased with it and would ask for this room again. The bathroom was not a good size, clean with a shower over the bath, sink and toilet. The hair dryer was in a drawer in the bedroom. The reception staff we dealt with were really nice. There was a bar area which also had some lovely views out to the wash. There was also a pub next to the hotel which was very popular. About the area - The immediate hotel grounds back onto the sand and it is moments to get to the sea. It is a 15 minute walk to town or a very quick drive. I found the area very quiet and quite relaxing. Prior to coming we were told that there was an event being held on the Friday night and that we might experience some noise up to 12pm. We were reminded by reception on arrival that this might be the case. There was some noise, but it was over by 12 and after that we were not disturbed again exactly as they had said.

    « Lovely hotel, location and atmosphere. NIGHT-TIME FIRE SAFETY PROCEDURE NON-EXISTENT »

    Lovely hotel, lovely food and helpful staff and a beautiful room with comfortable beds and an outstanding location with a beautiful beach. But 12am and 1am fire safety shambles on Saturday / Sunday 2nd / 3rd July 2016. The fire safety procedure was non-existent. Manager non-existent at any point during the incident even after I asked the night porter to call for him and get him up. The night porters said the fire engine was on its way and automatically linked in to the NEW fire system, but obviously was not as it took almost an hour to get there from the first fire alarm at 12am One of the residents had to call the fire brigade because the night porters were clueless and inept in any procedure in what could have been a life-threatening situation. The lady who called 999 was put through to a Lincoln exchange and were given the name of the hotel and the postcode but still asked for the road name. It's 1am, people are tired, the porters are looking for the fire so are absent, the phone exchange should have been more proactive too. Senior citizens not looked after properly and left out in the cold. Again residents had to look after the elderly to find them blankets and jackets and communication and any direction was appalling. Best Western Hotel management, earn your salaries and get your night time staff trained for fire safety as well as your daytime staff. Don't cut corners with people's lives. A broken night's sleep and needless stress due to a faulty fire detection system and poor procedure on what should have been a relaxing break - The receptionist was kind and apologetic the following day, but where was the hotel manager? I am very concerned about any of the Best Western Hotels fire safety procedure now. If you go to any Best Western Hotels please check the night time staff are fully versed in a fire safety. I don't know what warrants a star rating in a hotel but this one should temporarily have one of its stars taken away until their safety equipment and procedures have been fully checked.

On the day the staff had reserved a table in a prime position and handed me a hand written birthday card. A lovely start to our evening. Things got better when the food was served. An excellent starter and an excellent main course. All dishes served with a top clash presentation. Service could not be faulted. We were made very welcome, even though we were not residents.

Breakfast service was excellent as was the quality and variety of foods on offer. We had dinner both nights in the Ancient Mariner Sunset Room, and actually saw a sunset! The service and food hare was also very good and reasonably priced. All the staff were very friendly, courteous and helpful. We needed tp print off some boarding cards for a flight while we were there and receptionist could not have been more helpful, changing the in k in the printer and making sure that everything was working.

The only downside of this visit was the food, we have never had cause to complain before but the new chef needs to get his act together as the food is one of the reasons to use this hotel When we came to checkout the young lady on reception was a great ambassador for the hotel Unfortunately I did not get her name Overall not a bad visit but let down by the evening meals

    « A Pleasant Weeks Stay »

    We chose Le Strange Arms Hotel for a weeks bird watching along the north coast of Norfolk. We were not disappointed. Booking of the hotel with Best Western was straight forward and easy; check-in also went smoothly and our large comfortable twin bedded room was just what we required. It was a corner room with windows on two sides giving views over the near by sea shore from both. The bathroom was also a good size with a shower over the bath and was fully equipped with the usual toiletries. The only criticism was that the shower head required a little bit of maintenance due to leaks which could cause water to spurt in various directions. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful and happily answered any questions put to them. Breakfast consisted for the usual choice of a selection of fruits, cereals, Continental items as well as a wide range of cooked items. Meals later in the day offered a slightly more restricted choice with about half the menu being changed daily. The food was tasty and enjoyable but was somewhat on the expensive side. As an alternative, attached to the hotel is the Ancient Mariner pub where you can get a good meal at a cheaper price. All in all, a very pleasant place to stay and somewhere we would be very happy to return to. Highly recommended.

    « Very friendly hotel »

    The Hotel is situated just behind the sand dunes with pleasant views across to the sea. It is a somewhat rambling building, reminiscent of many seaside hotels and might benefit from some refurbishment. We were members of a party of twelve guests. Our room (no 111) was spacious, clean and well decorated with a modern bathroom. Unfortunately some members of our party were less happy with their rooms. All the staff we encountered were very friendly and went out of their way to help. We stayed on half-board terms. The food was excellent, if slightly limited in choice. Given that mobile phone signals in this part of Norfolk are almost non-existent we were pleased to have free wifi, with excellent download speeds available throughout the hotel.

    We were looking to escape for a couple of days and able to get a room at the last minute. We haven't stayed here for a good few years but found it to be almost as we left it but with the added bonus of a new "conservatory" on the front which extended the dining room and on the other side gave somewhere to sit and take in the sea view. We had a sea view room in the main part of the building, which was a bonus for such a late booking. The room was nicely decorated, had a very good sized bathroom with separate bath (view of the sea could be had from the bath if you opened the frosted window) and shower, a good sized TV, comfy bed - what more could anyone want for a short break. Breakfast was very good with prompt service. We dined at The Ancient Mariner "pub" next door, which is part of the hotel complex so you can add any spend to your hotel bill. The pub had been extended since our last visit, which was definitely needed, especially at the height of the season. The food was good here with great friendly service. The hotel is in a great position with the lawn leading down through the dunes to the beach. A great bonus for a morning and evening walk on the beach. Let's hope it's not so long this time before we return.

The hotel is spotless, with our standard room a pleasant surprise. It was very big with a huge bed, which was excellent. The bathroom was just the right size, with a very good shower. The restaurant was welcoming, with all of the young staff attentive, polite and friendly. The menu was reasonably varied, and was delivered in good time, freshly prepared, hot, and very enjoyable. Breakfast was also very good, with food cooked to order, Much better than a buffet. Again breakfast staff were on the ball, bringing coffee promptly, and taking our order with a smile and some light conversation. (Just what you want after a night on G&Ts). we will certainly return when the summer is here.

    Recently had a 5 day break in Hunstanton. Visited the Le Strang for an evening meal. Nothing really outstanding about the place other then the staff,couldnt have done any more for us, On leaving we got chatting to a guy called Martin, think he was the night watchman, local lad, told us all the hidden gems to visit, made our last two days very interesting

    « Amazing Hotel »

    Amazing location, amazing hotel and staff couldnt have been happier :) We stayed for 1 night and got a free upgrade to a 4 poster room, the room was spotless, bathroom was huge and free internet in rooms is just great. We had breakfast the following morning, which was included in the price of the room that we chose and it was great, continental and cooked.

    Lovely hotel, great staff, wonderful setting,loads to do, fantastic walks. Lots of places to eat. Hunstanton Hall and Church ( great tea and cake) well worth a visit on Thursdays. The hotel breakfast was really good in fact the only thing that I missed was a mini bar/fridge in the room. Fantastic stay.

    « Ok, But! »

    Just had a 2 night break on a B&B. The hotel was fully booked so very busy, but they seem to cope ok with the breakfast service. The breakfast was just what you'd expect, from a Best Western, help yourself to cereals, fruit & juice, waited tables for the cooked. We did like the fact that you could sit where you wanted and the toast was proper bread, not that nasty cheep stuff. We had a double room 114 which was nicely decorated, and quite large. But we both found the bed to be very hard, but I guess it's all down to what your use too. The bathroom was shower only but it was clean and warm. There was however noise from what we think was some sort of extractor fan that ran all night long, good job we always take ear plugs. We did ask to be moved but they only had rooms in the annexe, which was very dated so we decided to stay putt, but at least they offered. I think that the hotel could be made into somewhere very special, given it's location, right on the sea front, but that will take a great deal of work, which is made even harder due to the fact that the building is listed. If I could make a suggestion, to the owners. Make the most of the grounds that come with this hotel, they could be made fabulous, with a little imagination and hard work. All considered we would stop there again.

    « Best Western Le Strange Arms Hotel »

    Got room 109. No bath and view of a brick wall. How can you charge the same for this as say room 111. Receptionist kindly moved me to Room 123. Can to call Dity manager to get the shower working. During a shower the extractor fan blew fluffy dust all over the walls ceiling, basin and toilet. No BBC ceefax avaiable on TV. Many evening meal options not available because of a busy Saturday (Scallops, Steaks, Fish, Ravioli....). Breakfast quality noticably down. Fresh natural yogurt and fruit compot replaced with tubs (and only toffe and vanilla flavours appeared to be available). Missed Hash brown off breafast order. Mushroom option changed to half a portabello, not peeled so didnt eat. Bread for toast and fried slice poor quality. It was a white bloomer and not white slice so both were so brittle they distintigrated into crumbs. Skin on sausage thicker so plastic texture. No warm milk jug with coffee, just a cold one on the same. Sunday Roast in Mariners Arms not value for money at 12.95. Had much better for considerably less. You could hear everything going on in the bathroom upstairs very very clearly.

    « Good hotel in a good location »

    Hotel is a great location right on the beach. Staff are friendly and helpful. The room was clean and a good size but decor abit dated. The only thing was the food food wasn't he greatest especially for the price. I ordered the Confit Duck and was hard as stone. We never had dinner there again and found a great Fish and Chips called Eric's shop 7 minutes drive from the hotel which was much more tastier and much more cheaper.

    « Le Strange Arms Hotel, Hunstanton »

    Lovely staff, but interiors quite shabby with 1970s decor, and breakfast and bar menu quite tired. So whilst a super position by the sea, it takes advantage of this selling point, and makes it quite expensive for what it is.

    The staff were very helpful and friendly and the room, with a sea view, was spacious with a bed wide enough for 4! The breakfast was very good with the cooked meal freshly prepared. Excellent hotel for a one night stay and we could find no faults, however it would be a bit too expensive to stay longer.

    « Pleasant stay in the Boat House »

    The top floor of the Boat House worked out well for us (family with 2 girls who were happy to share a double bed). It was good to have the separate lounge area (with its sea-view) to ourselves. The only complaint was that the rooms were too hot, even with the thermostat turned down, Storm Katie made it impractical to open the windows.

    « Traditional hotel but requires some updating of bedrooms and facilities »

    My room was at the back of the hotel therefore no sea view but it was a budget room. As a single traveller i opted for the twin beded room as they tend to be more spacious than a single bedded room. My room was quite dark due to dark furniture and dark wallpaper - a lighter coloured wallpaper would really lift and brighten up this room. the two adjacent bedrooms were lighter and brighter. the carpet was a dark red colour that was well worn and really needs replacing. The bathroom was compact with only a shower (no bath) but appeared modern compared to the bedroom. everything worked - Heating, Hot water, kettle, Hairdryer. Other guests were complaining that they had NO heating or hot water so i felt lucky that my room was warm and comfy. It is a shame that for breakfast there is now and extra charge of £3.50 if you wanted the smoked haddock or kippers. On previous visits this was included in the breakfast menu - A REAL SHAME and I think £3.50 extra is a lot to pay considering that you would forfit the other items on the breakfast menu. The veggy sausages were good and very authentic - smoked in flavour and a realistic texture - I did ask the waitress if they were veggy (reply was a polite - QUORN). Another couple the next day were unsure too about them ! Wi Fi connections in the hotel and bedrooms was excellent and quick too - well done. Overall i would stay here again - (my 5th stay to date).

    Hotel very good and ideally located for exploring the Norfolk coast. Breakfast special and The Ancient Mariner public house next door gives you options for eating. Could have done without the nice man revving his sports car from 6.30 - 8.30 am but when you are important and have a red open top , you can please yourself and not worry about the comfort of fellow guests..

    « Birthday break »

    Went there to celebrate my husbands birthday. Hotel left card in the room which was a nice touch. Room comfortable, but we couldn't shut window properly but the curtains were thick so it didn't matter. Sea view room which gave lovely views of the spectacular sunsets. We stayed B&B and evening meals. These were varied and of good quality, although we struggled to have a bread roll with soup as it was all fancy bread! The walks on the beach were lovely and the whole area is good to potter around with picturesque villages. A very enjoyable break

    It's the perfect place for us. We love birdwatching in Norfolk and have stayed at various hotels over the years but we'll come back to this one from now on. It's ideally situated for all the reserves. It's clean, very comfortable, good quality and reasonably priced. The adjoining Ancient Mariner Inn is perfect for less formal dining

    Booked a last minute visit to the coast and was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The staff we're very friendly and on arrival we were given a free upgrade to a junior suite. The room itself was very clean and well presented. We ordered food from the bar to the room. Not sure it was an option, but the staff on reception were very helpful and sorted it all out for us! Food was nice and not too expensive. Highly recommend a stay at this hotel. Very close to Hunstanton Beach and a short drive from the main town.

    We went with friends and stayed in the boat house. The view overlooking the sea was amazing , the boat house was modern and well equipped .

The bed was huge, if fact (me husband andlittle one ) all slept in the same bed for the.night. there was loads of space. Would be lovely to spend more than one night there. Staff were very nice and very helpfull. The only down side was the food was not great at the mariners inn next door. We chose to eat in there in steed of the main hotel resturant as we had our little one with us. Breakfast was lovely all you could wish for. Would definitely good back and wuld recommended to anyone. Great location too.

    « Great stay in beautiful room »

    We live in East Norfolk but wanted an overnight in North Norfolk to visit a few more reserves in the area. Le Strange hotel is in a stunning position, right on the edge of the dunes as the coast bends round towards the East. Sitting in the breakfast room we watched hundreds of Brent Geese float round on the tide at the start of the day. We booked the 4 poster room - a beautiful, large room with wonderful decor. A giant bed, lovely furnishing and equally good bathroom made it a special place to stay. As we were only staying one night we weren't worried about the outlook but it is at back of hotel. If I was staying longer I would opt for one of the sea view rooms - it's not a complaint but just something to be aware of if you want to see the sea and the sunsets! Breakfast was great - loads of choice from buffet and then cooked bacon, eggs etc too. All fresh and nicely prepared. We booked via the Abacus Hotel website which gave us a £10 voucher towards food and beverages - nice touch which paid for our night cap before bed. Joined to the hotel is the Ancient Mariner pub which serves nice meals - if considering booking DB&B - check out the Ancient Mariner website first - we found they were offering a 50% food voucher when we stayed. So we just booked B&B and used our voucher in the pub restaurant - saved us quite a lot of money on the DB&B rate. Their food is good, wholesome pub fayre. Food is the hotel restaurant also looked great although more expensive - but the pub food served us well after a day around nature reserves. Staff were all friendly and helpful - even the builders in the grounds were 'birders' and we had a friendly chat about what to see in the area!

    We stayed at Best Western Le Strange Arms Hotel, Hunstanton and it was fabulous. We booked a sea view room, for 2 adults and when we arrived, had been given an upgrade to a family room, with sitting room and a second bedroom! The view was fabulous. We had room service (breakfast) and that was lovely. Couldn't fault the hotel, although the only thing I would say is that the pricing of the restaurant is a little steep.

    We stayed at Le Strange Arms this last weekend for my husbands birthday. We initially loved the location which is right on the beach, with a fantastic view of Kite surfers, but we're very impressed with the Hotel itself.. what a beautiful place, the perfect spot, gorgeous building and even better we were upgraded to a fabulous family room with far reaching views of the beach from two sides. It's is very nicely decorated, very clean, we had a 6ft , extremely comfortable, bed, tvs in both rooms, spotlessly clean and room service was excellent. Staff were all very pleasant ! I would like to book the family room in the future but can t seem to find it on any site?? I would highly recommend this hotel.

    « Good location. »

    We stayed at the Le Strange for a family celebration. We had a sea view room, which was pleasant, but a little dated and in need of a refurb. However, that said, the room was of a good size, provided the required sea view and a comfy bed and would be a perfectly adequate base to explore the local area. My wife, found the room to be too hot for sleeping, probably my fault for turning the heating up when we 1st arrived! The breakfast provided a good choice through the cold buffet and the full English was nicely cooked and certainly set us up for the day!

    Stayed 15/02/16. Pleasantly surprised to be given a room upgrade on arrival which had a separate siting room and bedroom (2 televisions) with views of the beach and the sea. Roaring fire in the lounge and everywhere very clean. A very good breakfast and all staff were helpful.

    « Welcoming, immaculate and attention to detail »

    I arrived just after 9pm on a Friday night having driven for around 3 hours straight from work. I used the 24hour room service to order a sandwich and drink - all reasonably priced and the staff welcoming. I had to leave my suit case outside the room whilst I returned to my car and in the meantime room service arrived and also took my suit case into my room. That was a nice touch - well done. When I opened the door to my room I was very pleasantly surprised. It was immaculate with attention to detail. The bed was fabulous and the shower was even better. The room exceeded my expectations. It wasn't one with a sea view. Breakfast was efficiently served. The sandy beach was literally a stone's throw away. A great location. After a refreshing walk into Hunstanton during the day I returned and had an informal nice meal in the hotel's adjacent Old Mariner pub. Good wifi throughout the hotel and pub. The craft centre opposite has some nice pieces . At night it was time to head back into Hunstanton to the Princess Theatre for a Heather Small concert. She was great too. I left after breakfast on Sunday having enjoyed my stay and would stay again in a heartbeat. I'd imagine it's a nice place to stay at Christmas. The only aspects that weren't perfect, but not enough to knock off any marks, were that arriving in the dark after a day at work and a 3 hour drive were that the location of the hotel's car park wasn't immediately apparent to me (you effectively approach the hotel from the back and have to drive up and round the hotel to the left to park in front of the hotel) and sound transmission was evident from the adjacent room. But certainly no marks knocked off and I'd stay there again in a heartbeat. Oops I've said that twice. Thank you Le Strange Arms.

    « Surprise Party »

    Our room was the most expensive, which overlooked the main car park & part of the beach. I did ask for a beach view, I wished I hadn't bothered as both of my daughters rooms were huge, but very dated. Definitely needs to be refurbished in most areas. The bar area the next day was rather busy as it took quite a while to order an afternoon tea, as there was only one member of staff serving. The location however was perfect. Apart from The beach area due to the stranded whale that had been washed up on shore, and it has became very sadly a tourist attraction.

    « What nice service »

    What can I say from the start of my visit tim the end the service was top notch. The morning and afternoon receptionists were both polite and efficient, the night porter was a saint organising a drink for us after a hard day and even cooking us breakfast for a very early start. The room and ambience is great and the hotel clean and tidy. Well done.

    « Nice position but room needed updating »

    We had a 2 night stay at this hotel. The hotel is in a good position and the room was clean and the staff friendly. The only down side was the room which seriously needed updating, if you were a large person you would have trouble sitting on the toilet without banging your knees on the radiator! Sellotape was holding the wall paper in place on one wall.

    « Avoid their hog roast »

    Went to the hotel for a birthday party. Overall the function room and bar were lovely but if you book a function there do not have the hog roast as it was very awful. The rolls with the meat in came out cold and were served on a sliver platter, could of put them in one of those trays that keep food warm. Meat was full of fat, no plates, someone had to ask for some and then they came out cold. Only good thing about it was the ketchup!! Very disappointing indeed. Won't recommended this hotel especially if you want to hold a function there.

Two minutes drive to Hunstanton itself which is a very quaint seaside were you can walk for a while along the sea front.

    « A really plesant stay »

    My first visit to this hotel, on business. I hope this will not be the last. A very pleasant stay with helpful and courteous staff. The restaurant was very pleasant and served good food. I was, as a diamond best western member up graded to a suite with sea views. I had a very good room rate which I suppose reflected the time of year as this I would imagine is a more seasonal hotel being on the seaside. I did not have breakfast due to early check out but would imagine it would be good. I have but one small word of warning and this in no way reflects on the hotel or staff and it is that despite having two mobile phone on two differing networks there was absolutely no signal, the staff were aware of this. As I said its not the Hotel but the lack of a mast near enough to be of use, Now to many this may well be a blessing I am sure as it will stop that annoying individual who seems always to be present using the restaurant as their office whilst eating or talking for hours to home or alike. Trust me I have been there too many times! My policy is not to take my phone there, I do wish others would not too! Anyway nothing to do with the Hotel. Parking was very easy and there was easy access to the beach and surrounding areas and I have no doubt many a good walk is to had from this location. My thanks to the staff for a most pleasant stay and have no problem recommending this hotel as many others have.

The pub next door was very convenient if you didnt want a main meal in the hotel which I think was run by the hotel as well. Plenty of room for off road parking.Very spacious outside seating area for eating and drinking with a sea view .A couple of minor faults in the bedroom were one bedside lamp did not work and the cheap sprung loaded toilet roll holder fell to bits every time it was used these minor faults I mentioned to the reception lady when we left.This did not at all spoil our stay and would definitely stay there again.

    « Not as good as it used to be »

    I wont really mention my previous visit to this one except that we asked for a quiet room and were put in a room above a disco without the option for moving, as the hotel was full. So, they were pretty lucky that we bothered to return again but as long term customers we thought we would give the place a second chance. This time, as the hotel no longer allows just one night stays at the weekend, we went outside of a weekend. Right from the start the website seemed temperamental and only offered us superior rooms despite us booking well in advance. However, we decided to treat ourselves and go for the superior option anyway. Upon arrival, our room appeared to be reasonable although the bathroom had a suite that looked like something out of the seventies with dirty sealant, grouting and rusty pipe work, definately not superior. The discovery of two pubes in the bath was off putting but not as off putting as a neaby hall radiator singing like a fax machine, so we asked to be moved. Our second room was far better but again the bathroom in places did not appear to be that clean in places (skirting boards looked like they had not been dusted for months, however, as everything else appeared clean then we werent bothered). The hotel although a bit ram shackle always used to have its own particular charm and was always comfortable, clean and inexpensive (so you could overlook some items which more fussy visitors would raise eyebrows about). However, it would appear that the place has gone through a cost cutting exercise recently and to be honest it shows. Prices seem to have increased but care over different areas has decreased. I hope that this is just a temporary blip in the hotel's fortune but two bad visits in a row to the place has kind of put me off future bookings.

    « Meal out »

    Went out for a great family meal. Great value for money. Venue is in a nice setting and well maintained. Whilst walking about the building the staff were very polite and thank you to John (maintenance) who took timeout to give us an insight to the current work being undertaken to ensure its tradition features remain. Very polite man and will definitely recommend this venue.

    « A lovely hotel in a fabulous location. »

    Booked by my husband as a birthday treat, he couldn't have chosen better. We'd had a couple of days at the Le Strange in the spring and knew we would return. The hotel has managed to be delightfully old fashioned whilst being right up to date in the things that matter. We had a sea view room, and what a view ! The grounds go straight on to the dunes dotted with beach huts. Fabulous for families in the summer. The food is very good, with several choices of venue, the pub, the Oak Bar or the restaurant where you get a legendary breakfast, freshly cooked to order. The cherry on the cake was the roaring fire in the lounge, storm Barney was passing by. Thank you to the staff who are all a credit to the hotel,polite, friendly, efficient and just lovely. We will be back !!

    « Excellent short break »

    An excellent stay, room good, internet good, excellent breakfast and the adjoining pub was good for casual dining in the evening. Right on the beach , an excellent base for walking in North Norfolk, bird watching or stately home visiting although they were all closed in November.

    « Le Strange Hotel, Old Hunstanton »

    By far our favourite Best Western Hotel. Have lost count how many times we have stayed there over the years. Overlooking the sea, peaceful and very relaxing. A good base for visiting Norfolk. The staff are mainly local and care about their job and to please customers. The lady (Sandy) in the restaurant has been there for years.

    « Anniversary Meal »

The meal in the restaurant was pleasant ,the service was good, the food good and served on hot plates., ( not all places serve on hot plates) we were waited upon by the pleasant Leanne . Lovely time had and would return for a meal at this hotel.

    « Beautiful location and amazing breakfast »

    All staff were very helpful and polite. The room was clean, comfortable and although spacious was very cozy. Beautiful view overlooking the sea from our room. Full marks for a good breakfast selection , and compliments to the chef for the very tasty cooked breakfast.

    « weekend break »

    Our room had a stale smell when you walked through the door. Some of the wall paper was pealing and a section of paper on the ceiling was pealing as well and had been held up by sticky tape. If the room was to the same standard as the en suite. It would have been very good but it wasn't. For a hotel with the AA rating it has I would have expected better. I would not stay again

    « family mid-week break »

    Stayed with the family here for two nights B&B. As have stayed here before we knew of its excellent location right on the front. Friendly hotel staff and breakfast excellent. Lots of food and staff could not be more helpful. Had one room in the boathouse and one in the main hotel. All acceptable but now a bit worn and tired. Nevertheless would recommend and return again.

    « Great location right on beach »

    I booked this hotel because of the location: the beach is right at the end of the garden. I had booked a standard room but was given a large-ish room with a seaview and sitting area, which was decorated to a high standard, so I was very happy about that. I didn't book breakfast as it was quite expensive, and so we took some food down to the beach instead.The staff were very friendly and helpful.

    « A friendly and welcoming retreat in Old Hunstanton »

    We stayed for a few nights at the Best Western Le Strange Arms as part of a mini-break by the North Norfolk coast in Autumn. There was plenty of car parking to the rear, with outdoor seating and a lawn area. The hotel over looks the scenic coast with some lovely views when the tide is in during the early evening. It also has a Summer house for guests to use, located right on the verge of where the lawns meet the sand dunes. Upon arrival the receptionist was welcoming and friendly. The hotel was clean and tidy with plenty of information about the local area and attractions to make the most of our stay. Our room was located on the first floor and boasted dual aspect views, one was a good view over the coast, and the other window looked out towards the nearby RNLI lifeboat station. The room was spacious and clean with appropriate furniture to make our stay comfortable including large flat-screen TV, table, chairs, wardrobe and a writing desk for those all important postcards. The shower was hot and powerful and the bathroom was modern with plenty of complimentary toiletries. Breakfast was served from 07:30 to 09:30 and was a good standard. During our stay we opted for the vegetarian option and eggs cooked various ways, all of which were cooked well. The breakfast buffet had a range of the usual cold options. All in all we would happily recommend Le Strange Arms and look forward to staying on our next visit to the area. .

    « Oak Bar!! Amazing Food!! »

    On Monday 19th October, Me and the Husband went for dinner in the Oak Bar! We had heard about the hotel from friends who we was visiting that day! And they were right!... It's was brilliant!! I only had a main course from Special menu... To be honest it was the best fish I had ever had with a topping of cheese and tomato! Thank you very much to the chef who cooked the meal for us!! Also thank you for the young bar man (Kieran) for moving use to a bigger table as my husband had three starters!! The young lady who delivered the food to us, Was very polite and welcoming before she placed the food on the table... unfortunately we didn't get a name but we think she was a manager as she wasn't in a uniform. Half way throw are meal a group of men with suits on came into the bar and were having drinks... They were very loud but didn't put us of our meal!! The only one thing about the hotel was that half way throw the night the young bar man disappeared and didn't return for a while! It's not a very big thing but we did have to wait to pay the bill at the end! ... Another gentleman did go to reception to see where the bar man was... The young girl from reception came throw to the bar and a few minutes later the young bar man came back!! The bar man did apologise and said he was helping serve another function in another room!! Thank you very much for a lovely meal and we will both be back again soon!

    « Great hotel let down by the restaurant »

    We spent four nights here as a base for exploring North Norfolk with an elderly parent. Our sea view rooms were exactly as we had requested and had everything that you would expect from a hotel of this class - comfortable Queen beds, plenty space around the desk and chairs, tea/coffee/hot chocolate making facilities, Freeview TV, well lit en-suite with plenty of hot water, complimentary wi-fi that didn't require repeated log in (although the internet signal was sometimes weak) and we never had any problem finding a space in the large, free car park. Throughout our stay, every member of staff (reception, restaurant and housekeeping) made a point of making sure that we had everything we needed and, if we had been staying on a B&B basis, I'd have no hesitation in awarding a full 5 stars. However, we had also opted to eat in every evening and we found the quality of the food to be variable. When it was good, it was indeed very good, but on too many occasions it fell short of being acceptable. Examples included a melon fan that had the consistency of an uncooked turnip and a salmon steak that was raw in the centre (we noticed that we were not the only diners to return this dish to the kitchen). All of which seemed such a pity as a simple quality check before delivery to the table could have avoided the problems ............and earned that extra star.

    « DISAPPOINTING AND THE SENIOR MANAGEMENT DON'T MIND! »

    Our room was located in the Boat House - basically a self catering facility within the hotel grounds. We thought we had booked a hotel and were not expecting what we were offered-a room in a flat with a shared kitchen and lounge with other people who had the other bedrooms in the flat. We complained and were immediately offered 'The Bridal Suite'. Very nice but I would not like to be the bride staying here. The upper valance trim on the four poster had been secured in places with - hair clips, yuk! and my wife then found nail clippings in the drawer unit - double yuk!. Admittedly the situation was dealt with very well by the duty manager. On our leaving we were dealing with the Receptionist (a popular gathering point for the staff making it difficult for guests to see the Desk let alone access the Reception staff) when her colleague spoke across us and did not offer any apology - the young lady we were dealing with had to do that and it wasn't her fault. The manager is on long term sick and we did get a letter from the Acting Manager acknowledging we had had a problem. I then complained to the hotel's company headquarters and we were eventually offered a free meal should we find ourselves in the area. This hotel has great potential but its senior management's cavalier attitude will not allow this to be realised - shame for the staff who are working hard and for its customers who a little 'in the way'

    « The best hotel in Norfolk »

    We have just returned from a four day break staying at the Le strange hotel The staff are excellent Nothing is to much trouble all of them go the "extra" mile to help For example we had a problem with the phone in our room so we could not contact another member of our party The phone could not be fixed straight away so Leanne made arrangements for us to use a walker talkie system until the fault was fixed(next day) That was fantastic customer service The lady looking after the restaurant (Kim) made sure we had an easy table to get as two of our party are disabled. and when she was not there she left notes and instructions, again excellent customer service Another great asset was a young lady named Courtney She helped out and made sure everything was spot on They are a really great team It is an absolute pleasure to use the hotel and a comfort to know they will be there to make your stay unforgettable A huge thank you to them all

    We booked a sunday/ Monday night stay - the hotel was fully booked which doesn't surprise me & the staff were really helpful, rooms very comfortable & restaurant was good. Location is great too - with Sandringham just down the road (which we found well worth a visit)

    « Quick visit »

    Stopped here for one night whilst in the area on business. I found the service at reception to be first class. My company had bilked a single room but the receptionist quickly upgraded me to a larger room for no additional charge. Well I say a larger room, it was almost a suite. I entered the room to find a small hallway with a wardrobe and the immaculately clean bathroom at one end and across the hall was the bedroom also impeccable. The towels and linens were clean and plentiful. Unfortunately I had no chance to enjoy the hotels beachfront location but the view from the lounge and dining room were stunning. In the morning I enjoyed a full English breakfast although there was a larger array of alternatives to tempt the tastebuds.

    « Older seaside hotel »

    The location is the best feature of this older, slightly tired felling, hotel. Right on the beach front the far side of the cliffs from the busy part of Hunstanton. Easy to get to and tons of parking. The room was average, nothing special. The building itself has a bit of dated charm. We didn't do breakfast because the price was very high and there are tons of places to get a good breakfast in the area at a more reasonable price.

    « Lovely autumn weekend. »

    This hotel has a wonderful location, gardens down to the sand dunes and a nice open feel to it. Having spent three days here we felt it was certainly a place to revisit. The room was nice with a very good en suite. Furnishings were comfortable decor were good. Breakfast was one of the best buffet styles I have enjoyed with good selections of cereals, fruits, cheeses, Danish pastries etc. The cooked selection was very nice and well presented. The adjoining pub was also excellent with good beers and food. Good outdoor areas for eating and drinking. The only thing I thought slightly let the hotel down was the dinner menu, with not a vast choice and also a little over priced for what you got. Having said that the food was still tasty. Room service was excellent and the staff in all areas were very professional. Overall an excellent weekend.

    « Great location, pity about the room! »

    Myself and my girlfriend went for a weekend away in Norfolk and stayed at this hotel, The location overlooking the Wash wouldn't shame a Spanish coastal resort, but it's a pity that we weren't allocated a sea view room, In fact our room was a major letdown in one aspect; temperature. It was far too hot all night, and the fan only helped slightly, but at least the bed was comfortableand everything worked. There was some slight peeling of the wallpaper but that wasn't a major issue, The redeeming feature was the staff and the food, which were both very good. It's a pity that it was dark when we ate in the evening, though we did experience a fantastic sunset on the Saturday evening. I would recommend this hotel but not room 202.

    « Stunning views »

    Visited this wonderful traditional old hotel for 3 nights last week. The level of service is next t none, with staff busying around all daylong to ensure that guest young and old receive a wonderful experience. The rooms are always spotlessly clean and the breakfast buffet is superb. Then there is the cooked option to look forward to afterwards. Once again, a wonderful time was had by both my husband and I and we look forward to going again next year.

    « Wonderful hotel »

    This is a fantastic hotel very relaxing and a joy to stay in. We had a room at the front of the hotel with wonderful views over the Wash. The room was well furnished and very clean. The hotel itself is very well decorated and furnished. We ate in the hotel restaurant and had a great meal with wonderful sea views. The staff were all polite and friendly. I would very much recommend this hotel. We have stayed here a number of times and the standards are always the same and always excellent.

    « a great hotel, good food and fabulous view over the Wash »

    We have just spent 2 nights at this hotel. The setting is very good, it looks out to sea with the beach around 150m away. The hotel was very busy during our stay with all rooms booked, but the staff remained attentive and very pleasant. The restaurant food is pretty good, although the one desert we had was only OK and not up to the standard of the main course and starters. Breakfast was good, with a wide choice of fare. Our room, on the second floor, looked out to sea, was not very large, but was clean, quiet, and cool. We would certainly return to this hotel if we were to again stay in Old Hunstanton.

    « Not What We Booked And Disabled Requirements Ignored »

    We booked this hotel for a 2 night break 3 months in advance and for the location and spent a long time on the 'phone making sure that we had 2 sea view rooms with one for a disabled friend next to the lift. We were required to pay the full rooms fees on arrival which we did before finding out that we did not have what we booked. On arrival my disabled friend had been placed in a room at the back of the hotel and a significant walk from the lift which she could not manage. Despite explaining that this was not what we booked and that it was a problem the manager did not come to see us and at time of writing we have heard no more on the matter with no apology and my friend has to manage although it was mentioned by the receptionist that there might be another room available the next day. This hotel is not cheap and the impression we are left with is they simply don't care. My daughter also found a piece of someone's nail in her food which was passed off as a piece of dried onion. The location is lovely but the hotel is tired and appears to be out of touch with little or no response to quite serious problems.

    « Another Great Stay »

    We keep going back time and again. This hotel ticks all the boxes for us, good food, great location and value for money. The staff are friendly and always willing to help. We stayed in a suite this visit and had room service several times, food arrived on time and piping hot. The beach is literally on the door step and the town is a 5 minute drive.
