A superb B&B in an elegant Victorian townhouse in the centre of Norwich. We were greeted with homemade salted caramel brownies on arrival, the room was spacious and tastefully furnished and the breakfast was excellent. A great place to stay for a night or two and try Roger Hickman's restaurant around the corner.

New people took this B&B over in June. The staff are amazing and George, the manager/chef is outstanding. They are still upgrading the rooms and ours was next in line but it is being done to an exceptional standard. It was extremely comfortable and breakfast was outstanding. Highly recommended!

You can't go wrong with 38 St Giles. I work in Norwich and have tried just about every hotel and b&b in the city. And just wish I'd found this gorgeous place sooner. Unique and charming decor, a lovely warm welcome from George who also serves up a mean breakfast, and personal touches in the room (posh toiletries, fresh flowers... More

It was four years ago I stayed here but needed to capture how amazing it was. I stayed for one night before I moved to Norwich and this was just so lovely. Situated in the Lanes, it felt secluded enough to avoid noise, yet central to the city. The room was beautiful, with amazing furniture. Breakfast was served in a... More

We were very fortunate to stay in the suite. The suite is absolutely amazing and polatial. This is probably one of the nicest rooms we have ever stayed in and the bed was so comfortable. For a B&B the offering at 38 St Giles manages to combine the most luxurious accommodation with the feeling of being part of the family.... More

One night in Norwich and I couldn't get into the Holiday Inn or Maids Head, so I thought I would give this place a go. Very simply, great room (my own lounge), great bed (with proper pillows and linen), great bathroom (better than my own) and a great breakfast (I didn't know scrambled egg could taste that good). I could... More

Just stayed in the new St Giles suite and feel quite relieved that we hadn't read the last review before booking - we had however read the previous reviews, which were all excellent. The room was on a special rate offer and I have to say it was worth every penny. Huge bedroom, gorgeous bed and bed linen, wonderful bathroom... More

We booked a superior room for last Saturday night (8th August) and upon arrival at about midday we were given a very friendly welcome and were told that we had been randomly selected for a room upgrade. This new room was brand new and we would be the first people staying in it. However, it wasn’t quite ready and we... More

George B, Manager at 38 St Giles, responded to this review

Dear Paul We are rather disappointed by certain comments and feel it is necessary to respond to you. I would just like to reassure you that we did not overbook, we decided to upgrade you because it was your birthday and thought this might be seen as a nice gesture rather than an attempt to disguise our 'greed and desire.'...

My heavily pregnant wife and I were looking for a nice, convenient B&B in Norwich for a wedding one summer weekend. And 38 St. Giles was the perfect choice. Situated in a beautiful part of Norwich, the place is run by a wonderful guy called Denis who warmly welcomed us very late on the Friday night with freshly baked brownies... More

We hadn't stayed in a boutique B&B before, but certainly will again. From the initial contact, the whole experience was a complete treat. We were made to feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The room was spacious, the bed incredibly comfortable and the pillows were perfect. Beautiful cotton bed linen, fluffy towels and gorgeous soap and shower... More
