We spent two nights here. Loved the beautifully appointed room full of thoughtful touches with a glorious view of the river. Victor and Phyllida were perfect hosts, convivial with lots of suggestions of things to go and places to visit. There are three or four pubs within walking distance providing a variety of places to eat (and drink). Norwich is... More

We received a very warm welcome to the Swan House from Phyllida and Victor, who were superb hosts throughout our stay. The swan house is beautifully located right on the river Yare, which made it a really tranquil setting to wake up to each morning. The balcony which was free for us to use, and was the perfect spot for... More

This is a truly excellent B&B - well-above average service, and at a price well below others. Sadly it is closing after this summer. There is only one guest room, so book soon. The owners are delightful, & nothing is too much trouble. Mr & Mrs A.Thomas.

We stayed recently for a two night break at Swan House. The room was spotless, and there was a lovely view over the river. The little touches were great, the Lindt chocolates, the sheets turned down at night and the filtered water in a glass carafe each. Unfortunately the weather was poor, so we couldn't avail of the decking overlooking... More

We really enjoyed our stay here, and the room was great, with a view over the river. I agree with another reviewer about the shower....really good!. Breakfast ( always the bit that interests me most! ) was splendid, and very imaginative and varied. Phyllida and Victor are good hosts....which makes quite a change from some other places we have stayed.... More

This B & B is in an idillyc location on the River Yare. The room is bright, spotless and has a fantastic view of the river. Equally, the ensuite is clean, modern and the shower is a treat. The hosts ensure that every need is catered for, ie, toiletries, fresh water, fluffy towels, fresh milk biscuits... I could go on.... More

From the moment we arrived we couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. Phyllida and Victor are amazing hosts who clearly have the knack of knowing how to look after people and do it so well. From the lovely, peaceful room, the comfortable bed, the fresh flowers and little chocolates( and so much more besides !) they think of... More

I can only echo what has been written in other reviews, this B&B is fantastic. The setting by the river is beautiful, the room is big, airy and spotlessly clean with a grandstand view over the river. The hosts Victor & Phyllida are charming, great fun to be with and more helpful than you could wish for, nothing was too... More

After a long train journey from the West Country we were sorely in need of somewhere to unwind and relax. Swan House is that place. Phyllida and Victor could not have given us a warmer welcome to their home, and the good-sized south-facing bedroom overlooking the tranquil River Yare below was a treat during our week with them. Comfy bed,... More

Sadly I was only in Norwich for one night, so my time at Swan House was brief. I arrived feeling rather frazzled after the drive from Sussex, but Phyllida and Victor came out to greet me and showed me into their beautiful home. The river, the spotlessly clean house and their hospitality worked their magic and I felt calm again.... More
