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

Spent 1 night at the hotel with friends and were really pleased with the choice, the hotel is on the banks of the Great Ouse, which makes an interesting back drop. Kings Lynn itself is an intersting town with a well preserved old centre,hard to imagine how it would have looked with a river and docks full of ships! Loved... More

We spent 2 nights at the hotel and enjoyed the experience. The rooms were clean, well furnished and roomy. The breakfasts were good with a varied menu. We also took advantage of the evening meal menus and as a result of the excellent first night's experience booked another meal on the second evening, and were not disappointed. The staff were...

Having often stayed in the sister hotel, the Rose and Crown in Dersingham which won pub of the year 2015 recently, I thought I'd try out the Bank house hotel in central Kings Lynn, The location is ideal, and also being home to a great restaurant where I have eaten before I was looking forward to seeing what the accommodation...

Head and shoulders above anything else that the town can offer for both accommodation and food. The hotel is very tastefully decorated, staff very welcoming and friendly and the food excellent. Stayed for two nights and well worth it to explore surrounding norfolk coast etc. The bath room was very good - spacious and bed very comfortable. My only suggestions... More

A little hidden gem of King's Lynn, for fine food and drink. It's located in a wonderful location, with fantastic scenic views. If you're on a date, I would strongly suggesting taking your date here! The food is incredible and for a reasonable price. The only issue is the parking. Parking outside the hotel is limited, you could be lucky... More

First visit to Kings Lynn and there's lots of interesting history to be had in the old quarter. Further back from the river there's the usual chain stores along a typical 60's town centre. Best to ignore that and concentrate on the picturesque river frontage. Bank House which is at the heart of the historic quarter is very definitely the... More

Stayed in a cozy room on the second floor which I found to be very comfortable. The decor is stylish and bright the room was very clean and warm. The bed was good with a view out off two windows over the river. I had dinner in the restaurant with a couple of local ales for £25 which was good... More

We booked a table for 12 people for a family celebration, the food was very tasty, staff attentive, the whole atmosphere was very relaxed and made a perfect meal out. We had a Sunday lunch where we had ordered the joints of meat and we carved these at the table which made for a bit of fun and we could... More

We stay in King's Lynn frequently when visiting relatives and had never considered the bank house, as it is at the upper end of our budget. But recently, we took advantage of a half board deal for the price of the room - and we were glad we did. The hotel is a boutique hotel in a historic building with... More
