We booked a 4 night stay at the Dales just before the Easter Holidays. We chose The Dales because they allow dogs to stay in some of the ground floor rooms. Our room was a superior double and looked out onto the wooded area at the back of the hotel. This was ideal as we could let our dog out directly from the room instead of having to walk through the hotel each time she needed to go out. A path through this area of the grounds leads directly to the Sheringham Hall Estate where you can enjoy long walks with your dog.
The room was furnished in a contemporary style with solid wood flooring, which is a good idea for rooms that allow dogs, and was clean and well layed out. The huge bed was very comfortable and the room was so quiet that we both enjoyed deep sleep.
Our dog does not like being left in hotels rooms and when we asked if dogs were allowed in the restaurant the receptionist informed us that they were not but that we could eat in the library (in which dogs were allowed). When we arrived for dinner we found a table had been set for us - we really enjoyed our 'private' dining room and also ate breakfast in the same room.
The food was generally of a very good standard. The only fault was an overcooked pigeon breast starter, but then I do like my game meat cooked pink. This was rectified immediately and I enjoyed the second attempt.
Overall we had a very relaxing stay at The Dales. All the staff were friendly, efficient and nothing was too much trouble - they really made such a difference and are a credit to the McKenzie Hotel Group that run this and two other hotels. We will definitely return.
Nearby is the wonderful North Norfolk coast and some very nice coastal towns - Wells next-the-sea is worth a visit. Also try lunch at Cookies at Salthouse - this is a quirky restaurant run by a family that have a crab and seafood shop. Great value and deliciously fresh.
