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

We are so pleased that we chose to stay at Gothic House. Everything about it is right. Location - right in the heart of the city, yet quiet and peaceful. Accommodation - comfortable, spacious, beautifully furnished and equipped. Breakfast - delicious, individually prepared. Hospitality - friendly, helpful, attention to detail, nothing too much trouble. We heartily recommend.

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
