This lovely guest house is a little gem in the heart of Norwich. It's like going back in time to a more relaxing era. Great accommodation and breakfast personally supervised by Clive who is quite a character.

Beautiful Grade II listed house in the yard behind a pub. Furnished with taste in a compatible style. Had room at front for two nights which was bright and spacious, with a private bathroom across the landing. Excellent breakfast including luscious fruits. Handy for restaurants. Stayed here whilst walking Boudiccas way.

The house is beautiful and very thoughtfully decorated/furnished. The rooms are spacious, well equipped and comfortable and everywhere was spotless. Clive is a great host....very helpful and cooks a splendid breakfast ! It is easy to walk into the old town/cathedral area from Gothic House and the house itself is set back from the road and therefore not at all... More

I stayed here with my fiance and my parents and had a lovely time. The rooms are very spacious and beautifully decorated with antique furniture. We were impressed by the attention to detail throughout the house. A lot of effort is put into the breakfast which uses locally sourced produce. Clive is a lovely host and we had a nice... More

I came here for a business trip as it is very close to where I was working. Aside from the very convenient location, what I really loved about this place was how evident the amount of time and love that has been spent on turning the rooms into veritable treasure troves of stunning Regency design was. It was an absolute... More

From the moment you arrive its obvious how much effort Clive has made to make to make your stay enjoyable, relaxing and interesting. The house itself is perfectly located to explore the centre of Norwich City centre and Clive local knowledge will help any interested traveller to locate the parts they wish. I'm not going to waffle on as the... More

We stayed with Clive for two nights at the end of a months travel. What a treat to relax in such a comfortable environment before the long flight home. Beautifully furnished and equipped rooms (seriously how many places do you stay with a trouser press?), lots to look at and a delicious breakfast each morning.The location was perfect for restaurants...

I was fortunate enough to spend a couple of nights at Gothic House last week and, like many reviewers, wish I could have extended my visit. Gothic House is a house with character and an interesting past (Clive, the owner, will tell you about if you ask) and excellent modern day facilities. Clive has created an elegant, comfortably furnished home... More

We stayed at Gothic House and it was a revelation. Quietly and securely placed behind a "real ale" pub, clean, stylish, great mattress and beautiful bedlinen, tea coffee etc., even a cafetiere! The bathroom is separate, dressing gowns provided, good toiletries, thoughtful touches like cotton wool balls. Breakfast was very well cooked, to order, and served in the elegant dining... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Gothic House is an elegant Regency town house located in a quiet leafy courtyard in the heart of the historic part of Norwich. It is close to the cathedral, transport links and the shopping areas. The house has been extensively refurbished and redecorated in a highly individual style yet sympathetic to its Regency origins. There are two spacious guest rooms: one double with a king-sized bed and a twin with 2 four-foot beds. ... more   less
