We arrived late in the afternoon without a booking, and were warmly welcomed. Our room was just lovely, very comfortable and clean. We were made a coffee and delicious home made cake, which was very much appreciated after a long drive. Walked a short walk into town for dinner. Breakfast was delicious and very promp. Loved the house and grounds.... More

Your heart doesn't leap on approach, confronted with worn out Tarmac drive, weeds sprouting from the guttering and flaking pointing in the bricks. BUT the welcome is very affable and warm and mine hosts are always on hand ? Too much, such that every coming and going is acknowledged. Our bedroom was large and shabby and the ensuite was a...

I was in Swaffham to visit an elderly relative, and staying in such a lovely, comfortable hotel was a real bonus. I arrived in Swaffham on the bus from Norwich, and the hotel was just a short walk away, so it is not essential to have a car. The owners gave me a warm welcome and I felt very much... More

Felt comfortable and at home immediately here. Everything you need and a comfortable and spotless room. Lovely breakfast with proper poached egg. Good hot shower and all toiletries provided if you need them. Nice soft towels. Will be back later in the year.

Your sat nav will get you straight to this hotel so no worries there and there's ample parking. I would describe this place as a guest house rather than a hotel or b&b. It's an old family home converted for guest purposes but does have a nice little lounge if you fancy a pint (although the beer wasn't that good)... More

Stayed one night here last weekend while house hunting in Norfolk. The owners knew we'd had a long journey, so when we checked in they offered to make us a cup of tea. As our room had its own kettle, this was a much-appreciated friendly gesture. Breakfast was very good and served quickly, but the highlight of the visit was... More

Just on the outskirts of the town of Swaffham and easy to reach all from this superb family run guest house. The single room I stayed in was more than adequate, was warm and cosy, well decored and very clean. The bed was comfortable, would have been improved with duvet rather than sheets and blankets, my only moan about the... More

I have just called in to this hotel by chance on my way home from a stay in Norfolk. I wish I had come here directly. I found friendly, helpful management. The Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Overall a good atmosphere. I will visit again.

My wife and I stayed for a night in order to attend a birthday gathering in Swaffham. We were greeted by David as we were parking our car, and were immediately offered assistance with our bags and a cup of tea before going up to our room, both offers gratefully accepted. The hotel is small enough to feel "cosy", but... More
