Visiting Lynn for the day by train from Royston by 12.30 we were looking for lunch. Coming across the Bank House we were drawn by it's imposing beauty on the river front. We were not disappointed. The food was both beautifully presented, enjoyable and reasonably priced. As a starter we had a dish of olives and sweet potato chips with... More

We booked the Captain's room and were very pleased that we had - such a lovely large room overlooking the river with a bathroom larger than may hotel rooms that we have stayed in! The bedroom was nicely furnished with a comfortable king size bed. Free water and cafetiere coffee. Home made cookies! The bathroom had a beautiful tiled floor,... More

What a lovely boutique hotel. As the name suggests it is a converted old Bank premises built in Georgean times - now grade II listed. Our room was large comfortable and simply fabulous. The bed was super - super kingsize - and the views from the room beautiful. The bathroom was similarly large and fabulous supplied with beautiful soaps and... More

We stayed at the Bank House Hotel for my boyfriends birthday, and it was absolutely amazing. I had read that it was very personalised so I was a bit cheeky and requested some batman goodies, and somehow they tracked some down for us – incredible! The Captain’s Room is huge, and the bathroom is exquisite. Definitely worth paying that little... More

We spent the weekend in King's Lynn simply because it is the terminus of Great Northern's route out of London. The town is charming and compact, everywhere seems to be no more than ten minutes walk from everywhere else, with different architectural styles from many periods. As inferred the hotel is about a ten minute walk from the railway station.... More

I came for afternoon tea with my friend who had traveled over from Ireland for the weekend. The afternoon tea was lovely and a lovely treat for me and my friend. As asked for we received all cheese sandwiches and the cakes and scones were lovely. The staff who served us were lovely, polite and catered to all our needs.... More

Spent one night in the hotel after googling hotels in the area, couldn't have been more delighted with the room, the bed, spot, the view and the service. Had a deluxe room and stayed in The Captain's Room, bed lovely and comfortable, view absolutely stunning and the bathroom....... don't know where to start, luxury doesn't begin to cover it. Would...

That's the impression of what's going on here when you read the owner's guide to King's Lynn and area, which is well written, and with a thoughtful approach. And the hotel is comfortable - our room (the Custom House room) was large and airy and with a great view over the square alongside the river and its little inlet, the... More

We stayed for 2 nights over the May bank holiday on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis at £160 prpn. We stayed in Tom's Room which is on the top floor with a side view of the square but not the river. On arrival: the main black door to the grand old house is often shut and only used for... More
