We stayed for one night last weekend whilst visiting family in Swaffham. As soon as we parked up the owner came out to take our bags and welcome us. Our room (number 5) was spacious and well-equipped (apart from the usual tea, coffee etc, there was bottled water and glasses) and the beds were extremely comfortable. The furnishings are country...

What a lovely find, warm reception on arrival, warm cosy bar. I booked a single room as I was travelling for business, I wasn't disappointed, spotlessly clean, very comfy bed. Can't recommend highly enough.

Lovely comfortable place to stay. Excellent breakfast again and lovely hosts. previous reviewer who called it just a guest house doesn't know what they are talking about: I have stayed in room 5 twice now and the traffic is really just a murmur. Regarding the wildlife - don't book a country hotel then! Speaking as a lone traveller it is... More

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
