A hotel hit by the winter sickness bug has shut its doors this week for an intensive deep clean.

More than 50 guests at the three-star Blakeney Hotel were laid low by a sickness bug thought to be winter vomiting bug norovirus over Christmas and New Year.

Although there have been no new cases since, the hotel has decided to close.

A senior manager at the privately owned 60-bedroom hotel said only a couple of bookings had to be cancelled as it was a very quiet time of year.

"It is a really quiet time of year, so we thought why not, and there are a few other bits we wanted to do."

As norovirus normally breaks out in hospitals or schools, she said she thought it might have happened because the hotel had a four-day Christmas party.
