Lovely clean hotel with efficient helpful staff. They even moved their car so we could park! Room was on the front of the hotel but had no problems with noise even though boiling night with windows open. (air con would be a nice touch?) Food great value and served quickly and hot with good choice.

Spent a couple of nights here. Room was typical budget hotel layout, clean and functional. The big downside was the fact that our room, the aptly numbered 101, was at the top of the stairs, not even within a corridor and the window in the room was directly over the entrance of the pub. As soon as we entered the... More

The hotel was clean and tidy. Staff were very friendly and it was good value for the money. Having the bar and restaurant next door was very useful too. Rooms were nice and quiet and the hotel is near shops etc in dereham.

We've stayed at the Romany Rye before - it's a great location for exploring the west of the wonderful county of Norfolk. The rooms are good (ours this time, at no extra cost, was a family room so was very spacious) - although not individually designed as newer Wetherspoon hotels. It was nice and quiet. Strange for a modern hotel... More

This Wetherspoons is very well appointed, lovely position in Dereham, food excellently cooked, service above average. The room we were allocated was large and well equipped BUT over the kitchen, with fans noisily blowing much of the time. We asked for new room and the receptionist was very polite but the room we were given was not as nice, adequate... More

Make sure that you book a family room if you are bringing children with you; then make the extra effort to make sure they are comfortable. Be careful about ordering food in the evening in the Bar downstairs; you won't always get the greatest service. However breakfast service is fast and excellent.

When I saw it was a Wetherspoons honestly, I didn't expect much. But the hotel was fantastic. Super clean, stylish and the staff went above and beyond during my stay. I had everything I needed for a wonderful few days break and was very impressed overall.

Nice hotel overall. Nice food and friendly helpful staff. Quite busy in the pub for food early on on Sunday but guess the local know a good deal when they see one. Rooms are nice and clean. Our view out of window (room 105) was a bit grim looking out onto flat roof with all the air con units humming... More
