We enjoyed our stay in Kings Lynn and this hotel was contributed a lot to our enjoyment. The room was good and the meals were all tasty and well cooked - I enjoyed the mixed sweet pepper side dish and the risotto especially. The hotel is an old building with lots of interesting features and patios for sitting out in... More

Went with family members who have not been before. I have eaten there on many occasions. They were really impressed as I was, with the lovely tasty seasonal food. Service was great. Was able to sit outside after the meal with drinks to take advantage of the warm weather. Can't wait until we eat there again.

What can I say, I was absolutely bowled over with this venue. All the staff were kind and courteous and nothing was too much trouble. I booked 5 days in advance for a family birthday for a terminally ill relative. I was looking for the perfect venue with wheelchair access and a tempting vegetarian menu and I found it. We... More

The hotel is in a beautiful old building in the old part of Kings Lynn. Our room was at the top of the house and had great views. The hotel is lovely and quirky in layout. Our bedroom was really comfortable with old beams in the roof and a large, very comfortable bed. The staff were always friendly and helpful... More

I stayed two nights here and thoroughly enjoyed myself. The beds were one of the best parts - soft and cozy and gave me a great night's sleep. The room and bathroom were enormous (it was a "larger double" I think) and very clean, the decorations rather sumptuous in a shabby-chic manner. The hotel's location couldn't have been more convenient.... More

We had booked a table and on arrival found the restaurant very busy and quite noisy. Seated at our table the menus were presented. A fairly good choice from burgers to fish but nothing really took my fancy. In all I thought the food to be just OK, nothing special. However, the staff were friendly and efficient. The view from...

Called in for a drink and decided to stay for a meal. Lovely bar area nicely decorated with a lovely ambience. All the staff were friendly and helpful. We only had a main course and a bottle of wine, reasonable price, well presented and very good. Would definately return, live locally so have not stayed here.

Definitely not a routine hotel, with the all the benefits and some of the quirky disadvantages that go with that (awkward passages ; no lift etc). The hotel is ideally located for a wander around the stunning centre of King's Lynn. We stayed in the Custom House room, which is spacious and attractive although the lighting in the bathroom is...

My friend and I had a twin-beddded room ("Custom House") for Saturday night. It was excellent - large, with comfy beds, big wardrobe, all the facilities you would expect, and with an enormous en suite. When we arrived at the hotel at 12.30pm we were given a very warm welcome, and that warmth, courtesy and efficiency continued to be shown... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
"Relaxed atmosphere, contemporary style" Bank House is a unique Grade II * listed 11 bedroom Georgian town house hotel, set on the quay side in the heart of the historic and business areas of King’s Lynn, and a step away from the renowned Corn Exchange theatre and Arts Centre. Recently renovated to bring an eclectic flourish to the building’s Georgian grandeur, Bank House is now King’s Lynn’s most exciting and inviting place to eat, drink and stay. Our stunning bedrooms are each individually decorated and immensely comfortable. We love food at Bank House! Our menu offers modern brasserie food, using top quality fresh ingredients and taking full advantage of the wonderful produce of the area in season. Our elegant Bar, once the bank manager's office, is open all day. Teas, coffees and delicious home made cakes are available throughout the day, with the Bank House tea of sandwiches, scones and cakes served during the afternoon. We have a number of private rooms available for meetings and conferences, private dinners, parties and weddings, large or small, and can tailor our catering to suit your exact requirements and budget. Wi-fi internet is available throughout. Why not visit our older sister, The Rose & Crown, Snettisham? ... more   less
