I live locally to this hotel and have watched it change owners. The room we had was really nice and recently obviously updated. I personally did not like all the laminated signs in the bathroom but I assume they are there because of previous guests. We ordered room service and the chips were bowls of soggy soft chips - not...

Poor reception area, limited staff who do their best. Room ok, clean and tidy but noisy pipes, extra rails needed for hanging wet towels, toilet seat needs to be securely placed. Slamming doors. Shelf needed in shower for toiletries. Awful soap dispensers. UHT milk disgusting. Gluten free options non-existent. Coffee at breakfast strong, stewed and cold. If you could have... More

Organised sandwiches and chips for 30 long distance cyclists. The owners were friendly, helpful and efficient and put on a great spread for us all. Really nice fillings and top chips! If any other cycling groups are doing the Norfolk Cycle Route 1 this hotel is bang on the route and I can strongly recommend them for a lunch stop.

Very hungry, we drove into Fakenham and stopped at the first place that looked good from the outside - first mistake. We walked into the restaurant attached to the Wensum Lodge. When we walked in - there were two warning signs that we had made a mistake: the place was virtualy empty and the decor was 20 years+ out of... More

Small comfy, clean room. A group of visitors up until1.30am was a slight disturbance, then woken at 6am by alarms BUT no evacuation. External door not secure as latch jammed open with a leaflet. Sign in shower 'Very hot water' though was only just warm. Lovely cooked breakfast, friendly efficient staff.

We stayed for 1 night after going to the Thursford Christmas show. We found the hotel clean but cheaply furnished and decorated. It is in no way a 3star hotel and is overpriced at £90/night. The breakfast was good-freshly cooked. The staff we saw we polite and helpful. We shared the room with large ladybirds and heard the man upstairs... More

The hotel itself is okay. The room was of an average standard and was serviced regularly. One issue I did have was the walls between the rooms are very thin. As I'm a light sleeper this was a problem when the couple in the next room had conversations till 4 in the morning. I found the food to be of... More
