Rather basic, outdated, but clean little hotel .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.

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.

Wensum Guest House is a great place to stay when visiting Norwich. Room was spotlessly clean and comfortable, breakfast was good with plenty of choice, staff always cheerful and welcoming. It's a great place to stay.

Stayed for one night as was attending the local hospital for family reasons. The check-in was easy enough but thought at 4pm was a little late for a check-in time as 1-2pm is standard. Same with check out time a little early, but they were ok to extend departure by a bit without issue. The room was comfortable and clean... More

Hotel is in a great location, a very easy 15minute walk from the city centre and nice bars and... More

We were combining work and leisure and had stayed at Wensum Guest house a couple of years ago. It was still very good. It had been redecorated and although we were in the older part it was exceptionally clean. Staff have a good balance of being available, but keep in the background. In the room you get all the facilities... More
