The hotel is set in beautiful grounds with direct access to Sheringham Park. The building is visually striking but its age brings challenges regarding the needs of customers holidaying in a modern context. Some of the rooms which have been modernised are very acceptable but others are in need of investment and a degree of extra tender loving care. Our... More

Situated next to woodland and Sheringham Park. Partially wooded grounds with outdoor seating and gazebos for the summer and other times of good weather. The building is of flint and brick so is pretty typical of the older buildings in North Norfolk. On entering you find everything is wood panelling and the grand wooden staircase. Not sure how old all... More

On entering the Dales Country House Hotel there is a warming log fire in reception and we then discovered more log fires in the bar and dining room.

We booked in for a group of 10 to have afternoon tea as a rare family get together and the staff at The Dales went above and beyond to make our afternoon special. As for the food, even Mary Poppins would have been delighted with the spread!
