The other reviewers have perfectly described the exceptionally high standard of this fabulous little B&B. Beautiful Georgian architecture, imaginative decor, blissfully comfortable beds, supremely fluffy towels, thoughtful finishing touches such as fresh flowers and homemade chocolate brownies, and not forgetting the wonderful breakfasts! I do agree with the other contributor who would have welcomed a non-bathroom based mirror in their... More

Booked the room direct with William. We had one of the top three rooms, which was huge and tastefully decorated with a new bathroom (not just the suite). Liked the small touches of cake left in the room and several teas and coffees, would be better to use HT milk so its still fine in the mornings. Breakfasts were amongst... More

I stayed here recently for the weekend. It is a real antidote to the Travelodges and Hiltons etc etc. Our room was huge with an airy sitting room - way bigger than I was expecting. Plus a B&O TV. Almost all the city centre pubs and restaurants are within walking distance. Pancakes for breakfast! Superb. So, before you book a... More

Really great to be so close to the centre of town, I had a quite room, on suite was rather small but ok and lots of nice touch's like cake in the afternoon left in the room. Great place to stay and see the sites of Norwich.

Using bed and breakfast or hotel accommodation every week of the year, I can quite simply say this is the best you'll get for city centre peace and quiet, impeccable decor in every room and excellent breakfasts that are cooked to your individual tastes.

This is a lovely town house - high ceilings and lovely old cupboards. It has been renovated to a high standard [the shower is fantastic with lovely toiletries]. It is an excellent location in the centre of the old town and in walking distance of all the sights and restaurants. We received an excellent welcome and were shown to our... More

Fresh flowers, a heavenly bed, fresh white fluffy towels each day, home made cakes or biscuits greeting me after work each evening. How could I not fall in love with the place? Add to that gorgeous architecture, eclectic art, and the adorable William's aga-cooked breakfasts and it is a real find. 38 St Giles shares its entrance passageway with a... More

The visit began inauspiciously as the taxi took us to the wrong hotel (No 48 across the road). Fortunately, this was not the first time this has happened and the Reception staff there quickly realised what had happened. Whilst No 48 is big and brassy, 38 St Giles is reserved-almost reticent- in advertising itself, but don't be alarmed, it's a... More

This is an absolutely gorgeous little B&B in the centre of Norwich, just behind the market. 10 mins from the Cathedral, shops on the doorstep. I was in one of the new rooms on the top floor. Very comfortable indeed. The bed was so comfortable it was a struggle to get up. In fact I even checked where the goose... More
