What a wonderful Bed & Breakfast, with beautiful surroundings, atmosphere and decor, set in an idyllic court yard just minutes from Norwich City Centre and the historical marvels on offer there. A historical marvel in its own right, It is worth a visit to Norwich just to experience the The Gothic House with its wonderful atmosphere and the hospitality of... More

My wife and I stayed at Gothic House for three nights and definitely concur with all the good things previous reviewers have mentioned. Clive is friendly and helpful, the location is convenient (and not noisy at all, which was slightly surprising as it is set back behind a busy road and a pub), the rooms are comfortable, and there is...

Clive is a wonderful host and extremely welcoming. Our room (the double) was very prettily decorated and the bed was very comfortable, everything you might need available - complimentary sherry too! We would have no hesitation in recommending the Gothic House, but worry it might be fully booked next time we want to stay!

I stayed in the twin room. Although not adviertised for families (just one double and 1 twin room in the property), the owner Clive was happy to accomadate myself and my (nearly) 9yr old son. The house is in a fabulous location within close walking distance of the catheral and city centre. As you might expect, it's not the quitest... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay at Gothic House. I'm sorry that it was not as quiet here as you might have liked. Most guests are surprised at just how quiet it is, especially for a city centre location. As for me accommodating children; as a general rule I do not. Soon I... More

Gothic house is tucked away in the heart of the old town of Norwich: you can walk easily to the cathedral and surrounding area and there is a vibrant, bustling community of good dining establishments and gastro pubs. The house is beautifully decorated and enhances the period features of the property; there is private gated parking for cars. Host and... More

Had another great stay at Gothic House B&B. Such luxurious comfort, with lovely rooms in a Georgian house so close to the town centre, but away from the road. Quiet and convenient. Lovely breakfasts too. Has parking too, which is a bonus. Situated in a courtyard behind the King's Head pub.

A little gem of a place set back off a busy road but close to the Cathedral and easy walking distance to all attractions. Beautiful room, extremely well appointed. Bathroom across the landing but private. Private parking. Host a little too attentive, tidying up after we'd left the room and replacing towels when not expected but I don't suppose you... More

I stayed here for three nights in June 2015. From my earliest email communications with Clive, I could immediately predict I would enjoy my stay at Gothic House. So I went in with rather high expectations and I was not disappointed in anything! The house itself is in a great location with secure off-street parking (highly recommended to just park... More

Can thoroughly recommend this delightful two roomed B&B. Clive is a charming host and welcomes you into his beautifully decorated period home. We shared the twin bedded room which is a good size, well equipped with very comfortable beds. Tucked away in a courtyard, Gothic House is quiet at night and we enjoyed a good nights sleep. Breakfast was generous... More
