Great location, friendly staff
Great little hotel on the outskirts of Corfe.
Staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely stay again if in the area.
Attentive staff- beautiful area
what a nice area, just a short stroll to Corfe Castle.
comfortable, warm room.
Wrong key to the room and no host on site to help.
I was surprised that I was given a pair of wrong keys to the room and entrance door.
The door was open on my arrival, but I could not lock the door with the wrong key. There was no staff on site. When I phoned the host Matthew on his mobile, he was on a bus to a private meal and told me I had to wait for about half hour. After 6 hours long drive I was desperate to go out and get my food. He told me I could leave my stuff in the room and they won't get stolen. Well, as a tourist from outside it was not easy for me to get my mind into that kind of relaxed mode. Asking me to hold on for a short while, he called me back and told me he found someone to come in about 20 minutes to sort out the wrong keys. So, I had to put my luggage (fortunate a light one) back into the car and drove out for my meal. It was comforting that later on he left a text message that the right keys were left in a place for me to pick up. I told him I'd leave about 6.30am in the morning, so would miss the breakfast. Obviously I was prepared for this and didn't expect any discount. But it would be nice if some kind of helpful gesture was offered, for example, maybe just offer a bottle of water - not kidding, very often good costumer service is in little things to show you are concerned about your guests, and giving wrong keys is the last thing you would expect from a professional service even it's only a B&B.
My second visit to Norden House
As the title implies I have stayed at Norden House before and found everything most satisfactory, which is why I returned.
It is also very handy (walking distance) for Norden station to use the steam train to Corfe castle and Swanage.
From the warm welcome by Matthew to the fabulous full English breakfast great place to stay, highly recommended.
a good clean friendly place
A very friendly, convenient and comfortable place; Good value for money
Only a few minor niggles - such as the drippy tap in the shower room & need for an extra shelf for toiletries & wash bag; Otherwise good value
First time visiting Dorset , found the staff very friendly and accommodating.
Bed very comfortable, be prepared to be woken early by the peacocks. Breakfast was excellent.
