Lovely hotel in an amazing location
Excellent stay. Staff really friendly and made you feel welcome straight away. Room lovely with an amazing Seaview Sheringham was quiet in the evening and we were able to leave our room window open so we could hear the sea...wonderful! Really relaxing. Excellent location

Not worth the cost
Not worth the cost. On arrival asked to wait in what was almost a storage room to do the checkin. Room was cramped. Bathroom had a lock that could have been recycled from a barn. Grout on the tiles was grubby and mouldy in places. Very, very disappointed will never stay there again.

Love The Two Lifeboats
Love the Two Lifeboats, have stayed before. A late booking but the sea view was great, the room was quiet, the gluten free fish and chips in the restaurant was the best we've had Thank you. Will stay again, the staff are lovely, the breakfast was great - beautifully cooked. The floors are a bit uneven but it is not a modern built hotel and this is its charm.

Fresh decor in all rooms and common upstairs areas so worth ignoring older reviews. Immaculate room, decent electric shower, sea view, heavy breakfast (tho I'd prefer fruit and yoghurts) very friendly healthy staff

6/10 Good

I was the only guest due to the Covid scare at Christmas. It's a great location and a very nice pub. The landlady (Anna) was super nice and, overall, I enjoyed my overnight stay. Given it's location, it's not cheap, and there were a couple of minor bathroom issues which stopped me giving it a higher rating; the electric shower was poor and the bath didn't drain properly. I opted for the cooked breakfast, which was ok, but wasn't the premium experience I was told to expect; e.g. sausages were just the standard, pre-cooked type. Nice spot though, and very clean.

Wonderful place to stay
I stayed at The Two Lifeboats, in Sheringham for one night only, wishing I could have stayed longer. The room was small but very cosy, the staff were absolutely wonderful. I had dinner here too and was surprised by how quick the service was, with staff constantly on hand to answer any queries etc. Would definitely recommend a longer stay here.
