Comfortable and clean with friendly staff, & conveniently situated on bus route, but also walkable to city centre (about 20 mins?). Good parking. We did have niggles, but these may have only related to our room. Coombed ceiling & window which we couldn't open/close meant it was very stuffy (fan provided, which we left on overnight), but it was an... More

Stayed here as had a wedding to go to. Helpful staff as we checked in quite late. Rooms were nice felt homely. Breakfast was great and all made fresh.. would stay again and was not expensive. We went based on previous reviews and was not disappointed.

We stayed for three nights at the Wensum.We were very comfortable and enjoyed our breakfasts.One negative- the bathroom was very small in room four. We are not big people but still found it difficult to move in the bathroom,The room itself was very comfortable. .We were on the front of the building which is set right back off the main... More

I stayed in a single room with a shared bathroom. The bed was a little saggy but, other than that, I had no complaints about the cleanliness and condition of my room and the facilities. You'll probably need to catch a bus or a taxi to get to the city centre if you're not up for the walk (supposedly about... More

Lovely guest house, close to town centre, breakfast was excellent (cereals, fruit yogurt, pastries, pancakes and a full cooked breakfast to follow). I was pleased to see a vegetarian option too on the cooked breakfast. Triple room was large, plenty big enough for the double and single bed. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate and a full sized kettle was better than... More

A lovely guest house near town centre. Felt like a small but more personal hotel. Receptionist was very helpful, polite and nothing was too much trouble. Room was very clean, modern and comfortable. There was ample parking. Clean and nicely decorated dining area and a lovely breakfast with plenty of choice. Would highly recommend this guesthouse.

Guest house only a short cab drive away to city, we would have walked but were all in high heels lol! Reception booked us a cab and were... More

We stayed a couple of weekend nights, and found the Wensum to be as good as other reviews indicate. The bed was pretty hard, if comfortable, prompting dissent between us, but no complaints on basic hospitality, cleanliness and noise control, despite a (stag?) party on site, and a car park right outside the room. Breakfast well cooked and tasty. The... More

I can only copy and paste Sue P's review - she says it all. Highly satisfied. “Excellent Service!” Room was really nice; clean, comfy and warm. The staff were friendly and very helpful throughout our stay. We were there to visit UEA, which was a short drive away (6 mins). The breakfast was delicious. Would certainly recommend! Can't fault the... More

Stayed over for one night due to a work commitment and was pleasantly surprised. The room was clean, warm and the bed was rather comfy. Breakfast was fine and there was a good selection but unfortunately the coffee tasted like dirty water, couldn't drink it at all. Parking is ample.
