Fantastic food,roast dinner was perfect. The roast beef was beautifully cooked and the chocolate brownie was delicious. The interior has been renovated to a spectacular standard with faultless attention to detail. The service and staff were professional, attentive and extremely polite. Will definitely be returning and highly recommend to both local and visiting customers.

We stayed at this beautifully positioned hotel with two small children and were made to feel welcome throughout. Staff shortages are more than compensated for by the friendliness of the staff on duty. Plenty of garden seating. Great breakfasts which must be selected the evening before but we always had what we'd ordered even though we asked for twists on certain option. We appreciated how Covid aware the whole hotel was too. Evening meal very tasty but slightly on the pricy end of things. Beds and pillows were very very comfortable and the hotel is quiet at night. Couldn't have been happier.

We have just returned from an extremely special break when Sally and I and our immediate family stayed at Blakeney House. Between us we occupied 7 of the hotels 10 rooms and not one of us have anything critical to say.
The setting is beautiful and peaceful, the rooms are comfortable and clean, the staff are extremely good at what they do ... nothing is too much trouble and everything is delivered in a friendly and cheerful way.
The breakfast choice and quality is good and is served by efficient and smiling staff who are anxious to please.
Dining in the evenings is exceptional value for money (not cheap but great quality food and wine well served) We ate there twice and had first class produce which was extremely well cooked and accompanied by good quality, sensibly priced wines. Also if you like cocktails speak to Sean - the man's a genius - Espresso martinis to die for :)
We shall be back ... and hopefully in the very near future.

I have recently returned from a several night stay with my family at the Blakeney House Hotel.
We had a pleasant stay but felt that our experience could have been considerably improved with just a few simple improvements.
I would also like to point out that this hotel has decided not to pass or share the (considerable) VAT saving with its customers. Whilst the Blakeney House is not unique in this decision, we would have appreciated a communication about this prior to or at least or during our stay/on checkout. I tried to have a conversation with somebody about this at checkout but there was nobody available to speak to
Prior to our stay, I had several very informative and friendly conversations with a gentleman who I had assumed was the manager. However, upon arrival and during my stay I did not experience the same level of service or any leadership from the hotels staff despite the more junior members being incredibly friendly and helpful.
The gentlemen who appeared to be the manager was harassed and was unfriendly most of the time. There was no smile or friendly welcome, a half-hearted offer to help with the luggage and a complete frustration and inertia to help when I mentioned a blocked plug in the shower in our room - to my knowledge this never got looked at that evening despite him reluctantly agreeing to do this as well as changing the saturated shower mat.
The cleanliness of the hotel was also lacking in a few areas. The coffee machine has not been emptied of capsules/waste, there was a thick layer of dust behind radiators and on cupboards and when I wiped the doors near the door handles, the tissues turned brown - a bit worrying in the current climate. This was
A shame as the rooms were lovely and the linen/beds very clean.
Finally, the WiFi was incredibly limited; this wasn’t a major problem for myself but could be frustrating for some guests especially if wanting to work whilst away.
The hotel is in lovely location, has a beautiful garden and has a reputation for great food. We didn’t have dinner there but the breakfast was satisfactory albeit let down slightly by some cheaper products such as Asda orange juice.
We had a pleasant stay but think this could have been a brilliant stay with improved leadership and better attention to detail.

I have given myself a little time to think about this.

We had a perfectly adequate stay at this B&B but in no way would it meet my criteria of a boutique description. There were no major quibbles but many niggly issues that alone were not worth complaining about but cumulatively got frustrating as I had high expectations given previous reviews and the price tag.

The restaurant may have been fine but was closed for our first 2 nights, a fact that was never highlighted to us. We ate at the Kings Arms the 1st night and enjoyed a Spar selection the second. (It seems we are not the first people to do that!). I would recommend The Moorings were we ate the last 2 evenings.

This is not a family run business and we were never introduced to the owners as it now seems to be run by a management team despite the information on their website.

I can understand why some visitors might enjoy this place, but having stayed at many hundreds of places from hostels to luxury hotels in making a fair comparison of quality, price and location I would not recommend it to friends.

To sum up I would describe it as a basic B&B with a cocktail bar and restaurant.

The best members of staff we met were the young man serving breakfast and the older lady who took our final payment.

In July my wife and I should have returned from a fly drive from Seattle to San Francisco but my wife passed away after a short illness during the pandemic. This was my first solo break after quite an ordeal. Relaxing in Blakeney was important. I needed rest and a chance to recover. Blakeney House delivered both. In spite of the many who holidayed at home this year, I found Blakeney to be relatively quiet compared to some places on the North Norfolk Coast. I suspect Blakeney House was close to full but it still had an air of peace and quiet. The staff were unobtrusive but polite and helpful when you met them. I liked the fact that they asked me if I wanted my room serviced. I declined. It helps with social distancingand avoiding transmission. Bedrooms were I think intended to give the impression of 'shabby chic' with distressed furniture and in some places things looked a little "tired" eg bathroom fittings but it is a small point and added to the character of the place and it was very clean when I arrived. My king size bed was superbly firm, exactly how I like it . The room was very hot because of the great weather and their is no air conditioning but I asked for a fan and was given a real beauty that helped. My sister and brother in law who had visited the hotel warned that dining in was expensive. They were not wrong. Prices were really high. Maybe the Covid situation and fewer tables for visitors is not helping so I can't really complain about this. The traveller needs Blakeney House to be open for business next year. However I must congratulate the kitchen crew. Expensive? Yes, but the dinner I had was superb - the best hake I have ever eaten and I am comparing that to eating hake at Rick Stein's restaurant in Padstow. I had a very good stay in tough circumstances but I am glad I chose Blakeney House.

The house is attractive, set in pleasant grounds and the owner and staff (particularly Sean and Trina) were friendly and very helpful. We were warned via a telephone call about the refurbishment still underway and the fact that the kitchen was not finished, hence no cooked breakfasts or evening meals. However we opted for the continental alternative which was generous and varied.
Our room was warm, comfortable and provided with tea/coffe making facilities (with a flask of fresh milk daily) and hairdryer. The en-suite was clean, modern, warm and a good size. The one minor problem with the shower was fixed immediately.
Overall, a pleasant and comfortable accommodation.

We booked a week based on the photographs on this website and the other reviews. Please be aware that this is not a family run business in the sense that the owners operate it remotely with a manager. The guest lounge is no longer. They have attempted a revamp using a strange mix of styles. All the rooms are very dark colours on walls and ceilings and with marble tables and high stools in a bar like area to replace the lounge. Whilst this was not our main problem it looks like you have arrived at a different place entirely.
Now lets get to the bits that really matter.
We arrived to see an overflowing ashtray on the front step. We were shown to room 3, it has been painted by an amateur with dark red all over the light switch. The radiator very close to the bed was filthy, the durniture was not shabby chic but filthy. The bathroom was grosse. We had no pillows on the bed but 2 without cases on the chair. They do not use pillow protectors and these were sweat stained.
We were asked if we wanted a complimentary tea or coffee in the previous lounge, now bar (ish) . We found a huge pool of tea on the table where the cups and saucers floated between when i found the new chef, he, with bad hrace wiped up with a vile looking cloth with his hands covered in paint. I said to him that i was very disappointed with our experience thus far, he shrugged and walked away. We checked out, tried to phone someone on the less than appetising phone in the hall. We had no contact for 3 days and since then only rude texts.
I am aware that the manager and chef are well known locally and appeared to have run a local pub. This may account for the very in accurate 5 star reviews. Check out the photographs a picture paints a thousand words.

Our reviews are always honest, factual and 100% reflect our own experience.

Blakeney House is a lovely quintessential Victorian hideaway with 10 bedrooms. We stayed during the last week of November on a 3-day mid week break. It was clear from the minute we arrived that the owners greatest assets are the warm and attentive service offered by all the staff.

We stayed in the Blakeney (room 2) bedroom which was a large bedroom with seating area and on-suite free standing bath with separate large shower. The bed was a very comfortable large king size bed. Our meals included breakfast and evening meal which were plentiful and very well presented. Overall we were very happy with our stay.

There were a couple of minor observations which we would address if we were the owners. We like, many other guests, like a traditional lounge where you can relax, enjoy a drink or read a newspaper. The Blakeney lounge has a number of high round bistro style tables with stools and only two armchairs. The second minor point was that the antique wardrobe door in our bedroom wouldn’t close properly when clothes were hanging on wooden coat hangers which made it difficult at night during a visit to the bathroom. Would we stay here again, most certainly.

My wife and I have just enjoyed 2 nights at Blakeney House Hotel to celebrate our 10th anniversary.

It’s conveniently set off the old High Street just a short walk from Blakeney Quay. It’s a lovely old house set in a beautiful garden with ample seating to enjoy a drink or food outside.

The service we received from the staff was first class and all credit is due to the management team for creating such a relaxing environment.

The food is wonderful and their new chef is obviously very talented.

The rooms are very comfortable - we had the Blakeney room on the first floor (room 2) - a beautiful room with a lovely view of the garden.

Cannot recommend this hotel enough and we plan to be back!
