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

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
