I want to say please don't stay here - but that's only because I want it to remain a secret! I can only agree with Martin S - don't waste time booking anywhere else - I guarantee you will not find better in Norwich than this wonderful B&B. The house itself is gorgeous - lovingly and sensitively restored and decorated,... More

My wife and I are considering moving to Norfolk, and in particular, Norwich. We had never been to the city, so decided to visit for two days in December. We found Gothic House on line. Clive and his partner were ever so welcoming, gracious, helpful, and informative. The perfect hosts. The house is lovely, inside and out, from another era.... More

If you are planning a visit to Norwich please don't waste your time looking at any other Bed and Breakfast or Hotel accommodation reviews - just book your stay at Gothic House and you won't be disappointed!

We returned to Gothic House and had almost forgotten how wonderful it is!! A short walk into Norwich City Centre with all the lovely shops and places to eat, but you go back to Gothic House, through the gate and you're in another world! Peace reigns and Clive goes out of his way to make the stay perfect. The house... More

A step back in time to this Georgian town house, it could be older - not sure. Beautiful breakfast served with fresh coffee Portree from a silver pot. However the bathroom was disappointing, it desperately needs a refit and to be honest was a bit grubby.

Jacqueline, it might have been more useful and helpful to me if you had expressed any disappointment you had felt regarding the bathroom when you were here. If I had missed anything when I had cleaned the room I am very sorry - I do everything myself, so I cannot blame the staff..! More

This place has real character and the owner has thought about every little detail. Not only does your room have the usual tea and coffee but here it's ground coffee, and biscuits, and fruit, and sherry! Decor is luxurious, antique and very individual. The breakfast is superb, and the location right in the middle of town yet quiet. You could... More

Gothic house is amazing, full of lovingly collected pieces, pictures and books. Clive is a gracious host along side the charming kharmer (sorry if the spelling is wrong) Parking is convenient and the location is perfect. Our double room was so lovely, beautifully decorated. Fruit, biscuits, tea, coffee and sherry in a cut glass decanter were provided as were bathrobes... More

What a fantastic find. A beautiful bed and breakfast in Norwich City centre with private, gated parking. We loved being able to park right outside and forget our car for the weekend as everything was within easy walking distance and next to one of the best real ale pubs in the city. We had the windows open as it was... More
