Room was spacious, clean and recently redecorated with a nice ensuite. Pillows were weirdly hard but there were normal ones in the cupcoard. Location is very convenient - ten minute walk from city centre. Unlike others, we did not find the road particularly noisy. Breakfast was plentiful. We enjoyed our stay here and would visit again.

On arrival the car park was packed but we had reserved a parking space when we booked,the owner moved his car to make a space for us,the bedroom was immaculate and finished off to a... More

Very friendly and welcoming staff. Be aware that when you get to the car park it looks full, but go into the pub and you will find they are reserving you a place by parking their van across 2 spaces. The rooms and the whole pub were spotless. We had room 5, which is en-suite. Very spacious. Comfortable bed and... More

We stayed in Norwich to visit family. The location is excellent and very close to amenities and the coach station. We didn't realise we had to share a bathroom but this wasn't an issue, though the bathroom could do with a blind. The rooms are quite small but nicely decorated and comes with a fan which is good. The staff... More

Very convenient for city centre and also on main road. The pub is pretty ordinary, and gives no indication of the quality of the accommodation in a building at the back. This seems to be a new build, newly and quite tastefully furnished, and our large double en-suite was a very pleasant surprise. Everything was clean, well appointed, and we... More

This is central (10 mins walk from the Castle) and had brand newly refurbished rooms (with massive bathrooms for some reason). But don't go here, unless you like living with windows firmly closed and breathing the dubious air-freshener atmosphere!

We chose this place as a base to stay at whilst exploring the Norwich area over the last bank holiday weekend. We were not too sure when booking if it would be much good but how wrong we were! This is an excellent inn with very good, modern and well appointed rooms. We were allocated room 3 with on-suite bathroom,... More

We arrived early but our room was ready and a lovely reserved parking space. We had a warm and friendly welcome and was shown to our requested room which was just like the photo on their website. Room and bathroom were very clean with lovely crisp white linen. You don't have to enter the pub as you have a side... More

We stayed here for just one night as we fancied a day's shopping in Norwich and wanted to chill out afterwards. Location wise this is perfect and we were able to arrive early in the day and park our car. They do let their car park spaces to members of the public so it was pretty full when we arrived,... More
