Warm welcome from the owner. Chris has had this place 21 years and the attention to detail is excellent. We had room 4 which is large, spacious and also has a large bathroom with bath and shower. 4 and 5 are on the top floor of the main building. We were there on a very cold night and the heating...

We spent a very pleasant weekend here. The room was very comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was just right with a good choice. We ate in the restaurant on one night and were very impressed with the quality of the food. The lounge is a lovely place to relax and also to have pre and post dinner drinks. The centre of... More

Spent two nights here with a work colleague. Rooms and bathrooms were immaculate, beds very comfortable, even restful cd's to play. Dinner was exceptionally good. Very friendly and helpful staff. There is a pretty garden and an outdoor swimming pool. Fair prices. We'll be back.

This is our third stay at The Old Rectory. As with our previous stays the service and product is consistently good. We love walking across Great Yarmouth Road to walk through the Broads. Cary Meadow is a few minutes down the road near Thorpe Manor and is a must see and do. It was pleasing to have free wifi. We... More

We're huge fans of this stunning restaurant with rooms, so were delighted when friends we'd not seen for some seven years told us they'd booked into the 'Dowager's Cottage' (the self-catering cottage on site), our natural response was to book a table for dinner! Our friends were thrilled with their accommodation and we all loved dinner!! As always, Chris was... More

I could repeat many of the things others have said, but mcoop's review of July 15 summarizes our experiences. Food, cleanliness, service, room comfort - all to the highest standards. The inn is managed in a polished and professional fashion...everything worked well because the work had been done to make sure it worked well and smoothly. The presentation and service... More

Lovely room, attentive staff. I was made to feel very welcome for my one nights stay. Hotel is just 6 minutes from the center of Norwich. One nights when dinner is not served there is a local Chef & Brewer 2 minutes down the main road.

The staff were attentive without being intrusive. The cuisine was EXCELLENT. Our room was large. And the added, unexpected bonus was a swimming pool to... More
