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

We stayed for one night after attending Fakenham Races. We arrived at the hotel early but they had a room ready and were only too happy to let us check in. Everywhere in the hotel was spotlessly clean and tidy and furnishings were of a good standard. It is true that some things may seem dated but it is an... More

if your expecting the Hilton - check into a Hilton. I stayed at this Hotel yesterday, and have got to say I was expecting the worst after reading the recent reviews. I have got to say, this is a very pleasant place to stay, the staff couldn't do any more to help - and the food in the restaurant in... More

Hotel is situated by the river and is of good 3 star standard. The bedroom was large and well kept with plenty of hanging space and drawers. Bed was a nice size with lovely duvet and pillows. There was a small lounge with a bar and a separate room with a pool table and seating. We only used the restaurant... More

Friendly and helpful hotel which was a pleasure to stay in. We were cycle touring and booked in in the late afternoon. The hotel staff made us welcome, sorted out secure storage for our bikes, and helped my wife with her cycle bags to our room. Our room was comfortable, clem and spacious. We had an evening meal as well... More

Ideal location for tourism, the river outside is picturesque, sadly this is where the pro's end. I cannot believe that this place is £90 a night, you can pay that for a night in a central London hotel! Our bath plug was blocked, our ceiling light didn't work, behind the bar they would not take a card payment for less... More

From the receptionist who welcomed us and showed us to our rooms, to the cleaners, everyone was friendly here. The building is an old one and so the rooms are not the largest and have squeaky boards, etc. However, it was a good stay. Our room overlooked the mill pond and the main road. However, even with only a single... More
