Stayed here with friends recently, rooms were perfect and great to have fresh towels daily, the staff were very friendly and breakfast was great, really enjoyed it and would highly recommend. The location is excellent aswell, a quick walk or drive in to the city centre.

Stayed on a Saturday night with my wife and two other couples as part of a 'Friends reunion' weekend. Superbly located, about a fifteen minute walk from the City centre. Ample parking, very friendly welcome and excellent breakfast. Room was spotless and well appointed. Highly recommended and we would definitely stay at the Wensum again.

I booked Wensum guest house because it had received very good reviews. It is close to town. About 20 min walk to get to a large selection of cafes and independent shops. They were very friendly. We had plenty of tea and coffee. Lots of toiletries provided. Finally a fantastic breakfast. Thank you

We found the Wensum warm clean and bright. The city is just about walkable from the properrty. The number 21 bus is quite regular and comes right past the door. We also parked at th St Andrews award winning car park which was convenient for the shops.

We had an overnight stay in the fabulous city of Norwich whilst attending a family get together. My husband and I were looking for a place to lay our heads that wasn't to fancy pants and in my husbands words was "cheap and cheerful". There is always a risk when you book an unknown place but we found the likes... More

Stayed overnight prior to my daughter's interview at UEA Medical School. Lovely place with a fresh feel. The gentleman (possibly the owner) who greeted us, showed us to our room and served us for breakfast was lovely, polite and efficient. The breakfast room was again light, fresh and modern. The breakfast was delicious and was cooked and presented perfectly. Excellent.

Bed was very comfortable making for a good night's sleep. 15-20 minute stroll to the city centre. Breakfast was impressive - cold buffet as well as hot food prepared as you arrive for breakfast. Host (Joles) is very accommodating, polite and also attentive at breakfast ensuring everything to satisfaction. House is on a main road but shutting the window blocks... More

The host was friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms we stayed in were comfortable, clean, and made the best use of space. They had everything you might need ... I've never seen a such a well stocked Tea/coffee tray! Breakfast was magnificent :D

I received a very warm welcome from the host and was shown to my room. Can't remember the number but it was just to the right of the reception area and up a small flight of stairs. I was aware when I booked that it was a shared bathroom which was located on the right just before you went up... More
