We usually stay in hotels when we travel, and as this was our first time in an inn/guesthouse - we were a tad uncertain to say the least We were massively impressed by this place though. Traditional english style pub downstairs, but a couple of really well done up rooms upstairs. The room we stayed in was really nice, but... More

Arrived a bit early but, not a problem as he had saved us a parking place for our bike. Everything was new in the rooms & pub. The shower room was spacious & a great shower. The bed was comfy & there were extra pillows in the wardrobe, plenty of space for all our gear. Seperate door to the rooms... More

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.

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!
