Tel: 01263 740797.
Just right for total escapism, the AA 4-Star Blakeney Hotel is situated beside the quay with outstanding views across the estuary to Blakeney Point (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty). A traditional, family hotel that prioritises quality and value for money, it is a good base for exploring the wider area (ideal if you like walking, bird watching or want to visit the nearby towns of Holt, Norwich or Aylsham), but equally perfect if all you want to do is kick back, read a paper and gaze out dreamily over the salt marshes. The Blakeney Hotel was winner of the EDP Tourism in Norfolk Award 2010 and 2011 for Best Hotel.
The Blakeney Hotel boasts over sixty rooms, all furnished to a high standard and some with balconies or terraces offering wonderful views over the estuary and salt marshes. Extra beds or cots for children can be provided and the ground floor rooms are ideal for holidaying dogs.
If you don’t feel like going too far, there is plenty to occupy and delight you within the hotel itself. The Hotel has a heated indoor swimming pool with adjacent Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and air-conditioned mini gym. There is a games room for table tennis, pool and darts and a billiard room with a full-sized table for billiards or snooker. Use of all the leisure facilities is free for residents.
For eating and drinking, the Hotel has two lounges, an AA Rosette restaurant and a bar, offering hearty English breakfasts, light lunches and seasonal À la Carte choices.
Picnic hampers can be made up for residents.
Great for enjoying the whole North Norfolk area, or a getaway destination in itself, The Blakeney Hotel is worth discovering whether you’re planning a romantic break for two, a half-term getaway with the kids or a weekend of walking and exploring with just you and the dog!
