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.

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 over all experience.

Turned up a little late due to the delays on the train. Staff were great . Had a single room on first floor shown on the their site was just like the room. Great location places to eat nearby and the late night shops for those last minute thing you may haveforgotten

Stayed one night in order to get our son back to Norwich.The reviews on trip advisor sold it to us. However, we booked via booking.com and got a very good price for a double ensuite room, B & B. Perhaps this caused us to be given the room we got. It was clean and comfortable enough, but it was room... More

Booked a twin room (no 15) for Tuesday evening. Had already spoken with manager about late arrival and altered payment method to avoid card surcharge. Promptly and politely greeted on arrival. Taken to a very tidy and well kept twin room. Everything seemed pretty new and in excellent order. Bathroom was really clean and the shower cubicle was in immaculate... More

Has good off road parking, easy to find and friendly welcome. Room was very clean with en suite shower etc. breakfast was brilliant, on a par with many 5***** places I've stayed in and better than some. Seemed to be locally sourced, well cooked and well presented. Wifi was free and worked very well. There are some nice pubs where... More

Very accommodating, lovely clean room. Host was especially helpful allowing us to come back & park our car & use bathroom to change clothes later, as we were going to a funeral. Breakfast food was really amazing 5* food. Would certainly stay there again.

This is our second stay at Wensum Guest House. We came, as last year for the Norwich Beer Festival. Wensum Guest House is in a good location, a 10/15 minute walk from the city centre. Being on a main road there is a good bus service for those who do not want to use the walk to help combat the... More

Lovely room with lots of space. Shower room perfectly adequate. We were on the ground floor and could hear noise from the room above us and from the car park. Host was very accommodating as we asked if we could leave the car in the morning to spend a day in the city and if they had a spare phone... More

Stayed here with two friends - we went to the opera at the Theatre Royal . My room was in the eaves; you had to be careful getting out of the bath! But everything was clean and the breakfast was very good - and all at a reasonable price.It's about ten minutes walk to the city centre
