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

My wife and I have returned this week from another very enjoyable stay (our fourth) at Gothic House.Clive,as before,was the perfect host and offered us a twin bedded room as the double was being decorated.This was equally comfortable,beautifully appointed and we both enjoyed two perfect nights sleep.Breakfast each morning was high quality (orange juice from freshly squeezed oranges,not from a...

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

My daughter and I stayed here for two nights, having booked after reading some positive TripAdvisor reviews. We could not have been more pleased. The B&B itself is tucked away behind Magdelen Street, and there is no noise from the road. Our room was the top floor twin, which was tastefully furnished, comfortable, immaculate and spacious. In addition, we had... More

We have just stayed at Gothic House again with Clive and the lovely Khmer. It was wonderful. We have stayed at a number of places in Norwich over the years but we really struck gold a few years ago when we discovered Gothic House. (Via TripAdvisor) For us there is nowhere else to stay! The bedrooms (we have stayed in... More

This was the worst B&B w' d ever stayed in. Breakfast (toast with scrambled egg) was so greasy we felt sick of it. We didn' t take breakfast the second day (only some strawberries). The host clearly doesn't know the meaning of cleaning: it was really dirty: the toilets (horrible), the room (dust everywhere), the blankets (with hair from the... More

I am of course very saddened to have received such a damning review, especially in the light of virtually all the previous reviews that I have been fortunate to have received. It is especially disappointing when none of the apparent issues that affected the guests were mentioned at all when they were here. Indeed, they gave no indication of unhappiness... More
