Let's be honest, it's not great. In it's favour Wensum is welcoming and situated next to a lovely millpond and the staff are great. On the downside the food isn't great and the rooms are passable. A clean and pleasant place to stay but not a destination hotel.

Bed rooms with cobwebs and stained bed linen. Corridors with a musty smell. Never mind refurbishment a good clean would be a recommended starting point. This could all have been forgiven if the breakfast had been half decent. It wasn't!! Sleeping in the car would have been a better option.

I stayed here on business and apart from the dining area the decor is rather dated. On being shown to my room the corridors had an interesting smell which combined sweat with chip fat. However my room was a decent size, although the fixtures and decor did look a little dated. Also trying to close the skylight blind with a... More

Quaint in appearance, surprisingly quiet but a hidden treasure! We stopped for dinner with friends and their children on the spur of the moment. We were staying nearby for the weekend and were looking for somewhere suitable to have dinner on Saturday. The menu looked good but I have to admit we were a little nervous that the restaurant was...

This lovely hotel is on the doorstep for Fakenham races or for just exploring this part of Norfolk. The staff are friendly and helpful. Good bar and eating areas but also a place to relax and play a game of pool or make use of lots of indoor games and books and daily newspapers. The food is so good and... More

Stayed for a week on business. Look It's not the ritz but is nice enough and good value for money. Rooms Clean & tidy. Staff all really friendly. Food was great with a nice menu and really good service. I'd recommend this place to anyone. Thanks Jason and crew for a great week.

Stayed 2 nights in a windowless room (a roof light with inefficient blackout facility only), that smelt stale. The en-suite was accessed by ill fitting doors,and had an unbelievably low washbasin and small shower access although water was hot and plentiful. Bedding was very clean but the mattress and pillows were extremely hard. Only 1 bed had a side table... More

I have had the pleasure of staying at Wensum Lodge a couple of times now when working local. The first time we stayed our initial thought was to head into town to a pub for food and drinks and we tried the weatherspoons (close by). But we now know this to be a mistake. The food at Wensum lodge is... More

We visited on New Year's Eve for two nights, hotel rooms were clean, spacious with the very nice addition of a bottle of water in the room every day. Breakfast was fantastic but sadly dinner was not to anywhere near the same standard. I suspect completion from nearby has had an effect. A well known chain of pubs serving food... More
