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.

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

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!

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.

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
