We had a wonderful weekend stay at the old rectory. The hotel is a short drive to Norwich city centre. The hotel staff were friendly, welcoming and attentive. The hotel room was super clean and spacious. The breakfast selection was phenomenal and really tasty! A great stay and would definitely recommend.

We stayed here for a family wedding, planned months in advance and as always plans change. The hotel were incredibly helpful when we changed our reservation about, when accommodation was needed early to allow guests to change, to allocate a room for an elderly guest unsteady on their feet and booking a taxi at the last minute to get us...

From the moment that we arrived, we were greeted with a friendly and sincere welcome, and this continued throughout our stay. The whole atmosphere of the hotel was very peaceful and relaxing, and our room in... More

A pleasant, shady garden surrounds this beautiful hotel. There is an attractive swimming pool with sunny patios, a comfortable summerhouse complete with lounging and friendly Birman cats and welcoming outside seating for diners if the weather is kind. And then one walks inside to find an immaculately decorated and comfortable interior, with tasteful furnishings and walls displaying paintings by a... More

Stayed at this lovely independent hotel for a short anniversary break. A peaceful setting and convenient for exploring Norwich and The Broads. All the staff were helpful and welcoming and we were pleased that we risked booking half board as the evening meals were delicious. Good breakfasts with perfect poached eggs each morning. Our room in the coach house was... More

Have just returned from a peaceful short break staying at the Georgian Listed Building - the Old Rectory. Heaps of charm and excellent beds, with good food and very efficient staff and owners. The hotel is set in landscaped gardens with a variety of seating areas set around an unheated swimming pool. We went by train and we were pleasantly... More

My wife and I stayed here for a week as a base to explore Norwich and Norfolk. Our double room on the first floor overlooking the beautiful front garden was very comfortable. The trees and hedges surrounding the lawn create a secluded effect, enhanced by the house being set well back up a driveway from the road through the village.... More

A beautiful hotel with wonderful period furnishings. We had a lovely room with a very large bathroom complete with a balcony overlooking the garden. Breakfasts were superb, freshly cooked to order and with just the right amount of food to avoid the feeling that you have eaten too much! We did have dinner on the first night - the menu... More

The Old Rectory is situated in mature gardens on the outskirts of Norwich next to a busy railway line. The first train entered via the bedroom window, exiting via the bathroom at precisely 4.40 am. The last train passed through at midnight.. We stayed for 3 nights during a very hot spell so all the windows were wide open. During... More
