Having booked our room well in advance of our stay (9 months) and advising staff on several calls that we would need easy access as we would have a 22month old and a 5 week old on arrival we were advised our "family room" was located up 2 flights of stairs and down 3 lots of 2 steps- family friendly...

Sandwiched between a busy road and a paint distribution warehouse , pretty this hotel is certainly not. I stayed here on business so any touristy activities were not required and all I needed was a clean comfy bed a bite to eat and a decent breakfast. On that score this worked with friendly staff and good bar food at reasonable... More

After reading the reviews on this place I feel I must do my own. I love this hotel, the wife and I have stayed there on a couple of occasions and every time we have found it to be clean and pleasant with friendly, helpful staff. The breakfast, in my opinion, is great value. Much better than a Wetherspoons. I'd... More

Easy to access hotel and free parking. We were going to Traditional Music Day at the Museum of East Anglian Life so very convenient. Friendly staff with average facilities. However a very average breakfast was an extra £7.50 per person making it an expensive place to stop. Better food and much cheaper at Wetherspoons down the road.

We decided to have a meal here on a Friday night as in the past, even though the menu isn't extensive, which I prefer; the food has been excellent and very large portions. Unfortunately it wasn't the case this time. A smattering of oven chips, frozen peas and a greasy, battered fish with a side order of salad consisting of... More

Great Hotel, Although the original building dates back to 16th century the en-suite rooms are modern, spacious and well equipped with Wi-Fi, TV, Hairdryer, kettle, complimentary tea/coffee and biscuits. Most of the rooms are on ground level with good access for those with mobility problems, and for the less able room 21 has a well specified wet room (although there... More

A bit dated in places perhaps, but clean, good bar and restaurant. The staff were helpful and provided a friendly service. Room was fine, having everything I needed with an excellent stand alone shower
