The host was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good. Beds very comfortable. The rates were reasonable. The rooms were clean and pleasant. Although it was on a main road the hotel is set back and not noisy. It is not in a particularly pleasant area but there is a good bus service into the city centre

Really easy to find on a main road into the city, with on-site parking and around 20 minutes walk into town and the many eateries. The room was clean and comfortable and we were made so welcome from the very start. The breakfasts were fantastic and I cannot gush enough about the bacon: fantastic. I enjoyed my stay so much.

A perfectly acceptable B&B , very comfortable beds, the room as clean as can be,reception desk closed part of the day, not much of a guest sitting area sans tv (good tv in room). Eight or eighteen rooms, I can't remember, we were able to share a triple room very conveniently with a teenage granddaughter as it had a spacious... More

Lovely modern guest house just 15 mins walk from Norwich city centre. The rooms were clean, well presented and comfortable. They were rather hot, but fans were provided...though once I'd opened the velux roof window, it soon cooled down...I slept well so it wasn't a major problem. The girl on Reception also did everything else!!! Shes a whirlwind and very... More

Rather basic, outdated, but clean little hotel . It is very well located for visiting Norwich or UEA. It has a good price/ quality. The owners are very friendly and helpful. They serve a good breakfast!.

We booked the place for a couple of nights. We enjoyed our stay there, nice bathroom and big room for the 3 of us, with comfy beds :) The breakfast was really good as well. It was nice that the owner, Nick remembered our request from the day before and asked if we wanted the same, which added a personal... More

We booked Wensum as we were off to see at band at The LCR. Very pleased that we did - it has ample parking, friendly faces, comfortable modern rooms and shower pressure to die for! On the advice of the staff we walked up to The Reindeer gastro pub for a fabulous meal before our gig. On our return from... More

We enjoyed traditional English breakfast after sleeping on the comfortable beds in our clean, quiet room. Nick & Tina were incredibly accommodating, even changing our room so our niece who is studying abroad could stay with us. Really great all around.
