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

Stayed here for just one night. I usually go for hotels rather than B&B's but this seemed to have better reviews than the nearby hotels so thought I'd give it a go. So pleased I did. The room was neat and tidy. Bathroom was a bit small but all you need for a short stay. Breakfast was nice the following... More

The room was clean and welcoming with tea, coffee, milk, biscuits. The room was ideal for a single person one night stay. I had a front room overlooking the... More

Our very first visit to Norwich and the Norfolk Broads and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay than Wensum Guest! On our arrival we were warmly welcomed by Abi who showed us to our room which was on the ground floor. The room was lovely more than ample draw space for all our clothes plus a nice... More

We stayed at the Wensum Guest House for three nights last week (September) for a short visit to Norwich and were really happy with our choice of accommodation. Our room was at the front of the house, on the ground floor and was of a really good size, with a comfy double bed, coffee making facilities, ample storage and a... More

We stayed her for one night, booking three rooms in total as we were two families of four (four teens) attending the Sundown Festival at the Norfolk Showground. The four teens were allocated the family room which was large with a double bed and two single beds. We (adults) had a double en-suite each, one located on the first floor... More

Wensum Guest house was very well priced for the location and size of the room. We were sharing a bathroom which was bright and spacious, and despite everyone having breakfast at around the same time - we didnt have any issues when it came to using the shared bathroom Really comfortable beds and good range of accessories/amentities available in the...

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.
