Stayed for 2 nights to celebrate my Wife's Birthday in October - Chris the owner was there to greet us when we arrived, and did a great job of looking after us during our stay - his regular chef was away when we visited so Chris was head chef as well as host. I had asked for Duck to be... More

We had to travel to Norwich from Kent to a funeral, so decided that we would stay for a couple of days and explore Norwich, as we hadnt been before. We booked the Old Rectory after looking at various hotels over the internet. What a fantastic find. It ticked all our boxes and the hotel was second to none. Very... More

This is our second time staying at The Old Rectory in the Dowagers Cottage which is a self contained cottage separate to the main house. We continue to be impressed with Chris and Sally's attention to detail and customer service which is emulated by their staff. I am impressed by the constant maintenance and cleanliness of the property. It is... More

More a small boutique hotel than a B&B, this beautiful site met all our criteria: country house ambience (but with all the modern conveniences, of course!), on-site restaurant, car park, quiet, near historical sites, and the icing on the cake...a room with a balcony overlooking gardens. Located in the residential suburb of Thorpe St. Andrew just two miles from historic... More

I think one has to be hyper critical not to enjoy staying in this hotel. It is well run; it has character; the food is good and it is in quiet location. Noise from the road/trains was minimal with the windows closed. Of course given the prices one would not expect anything else. I paid £130 per night DBB for... More

A really hospitable welcome when we arrived.We were given a tour around so we could get our bearings and shown to a lovely spacious room with a balcony for our 3 night stay. Our room faced the road and railway line beyond but did not disturb us. We had booked dinner for the first night thinking we might try other... More

We stayed at The Old Rectory for seven nights in the middle of August and had dinner in the restaurant each evening so hopefully this review will be helpful. The greeting when we arrived was superb. We actually met the owner, Chris, in the car park by chance. He immediately made us feel welcome and then called his Manager, Sam,... More

A great hospitable welcome; it’s a peaceful location; the morning house manager has a great laugh. I’m allocated room 5 at the top of the house; bright and airy, a good size bedroom with a great view over the valley. At the bottom of the long garden is the main road and there is a railway line in the distance... More

..and friendly. I needed a room with a difference catering for a group of people in a relaxed and informal setting - something not everyone can offer. They were understanding and *really accommodating looking to see how best they could help! 5 stars no problem!!
