We needed a getaway after a busy time, and Knight's Hill was perfect. Surprised to see it was just off a busy roundabout but once inside, most of the views were over fields and it felt very rural and peaceful.
The best bedrooms are at the back of the hotel, overlooking the garden and meadows. We wanted a twin room, and our room was the other side, overlooking a nicely-designed courtyard garden. The room was big and comfortable. As well as a modest sized en-suite, it had a small kitchenette in a recess, with kettle, fridge, double hob and microwave. As the room had a (locked) door to the adjoining room, we assume this was a suite which would be very convenient for a small family group.
We didn't use the kitchenette! We ate in the main dining room, a lovely room, with full height windows all round to make the most of the views over the garden and meadow. The food was good, reasonably priced, and the staff were attentive. On Sunday lunchtime, the dining room gets full (lots of locals), so it's best to book.
The hotel, unusually, has a pub on site, which also serves meals. It was packed out at Sunday lunchtime, you would have to arrive early to get a table. There are also other buildings in the complex, including a function hall and a spa with swimming pool. The main hotel building has various rooms and seating areas where you can find a quiet space to sit and read.
The staff were exceptional. They went out of their way to be polite and ensure we were happy with our stay. The staff seemed happy to work there, and the hotel had a lively and positive atmosphere.
There are lots of places to visit. The hotel is well placed for both Kings Lynn and the Norfolk coast, and Sandringham is just a few minutes drive away.
Overall, a great stay, and we'll be back. less
