We've just returned from a lovely weekend at the Cross Keys. The owners are a lovely couple who made us feel very welcome. Our cottage was adequately equipped, perfectly clean and comfortable. We both slept well and the view of the river right outside the window was special. Breakfast was good too, excellent selection, freshly cooked and well presented. Tasted... More

We have been visiting Crosskeys for the past 30 yrs or so, needless to say we like it. We always find a very friendly atmosphere when we stay here. You couldn't wish for better hosts than Mary and Bob, they would always go out of their way to make your stay a good one. An extra bonus this weekend, whilst... More

Hosts were friendly, a good choice of food for breakfast, we had scrambled eggs which were ok. We stayed in room 1, which is very old fashioned and not to our taste. Bed was not comfortable at all. Hot tap in Bath was broken, we were offered to use the families bath instead but decided not to as felt uncomfortable... More

We are sorry you did not like our B&B The building was actually built in 1780 and antique furniture is old fashioned but is in keeping with the house. There are pictures of all the rooms on our web site, so you can see before you book. Unfortunately the hot tap on the bath did not work on the evening... More

Stayed 2 nights here with our 3 dogs. Fantastic to have a room on the ground floor with its own front door! Mary and Bob were so friendly and accommodating - as we were competing with our dogs we had to leave too early to have breakfast - so they packed us up a lovely sandwich breakfast/lunch for each day....

Flouncy cheap bed frippery and rock hard bed that creaked everytime my husband turned over. Dusty artificial flowers around the room and bits and bobs. Dirty carpets and the most disgusting bathroom mats you have ever seen. I picked them up with a tissue to remove them. Dusty dolls and cot in room and around the hall ways. Very shabby... More

Lovely b&b. Breakfast delicious and large selection. Rooms very clean and homely. Friendly people, nothing to much bother. When I am back in Norfolk wouldnot stay anywhere else.The b&b full of character on a beautiful river setting. Loads of peace and quiet

A one night stay whilst house-hunting in the area. A lovely old house right by the river. Our room, no. 4, was on the ground floor. It not only had a bedroom and bathroom but also a very quaint, small living-room. The rooms had everything needed for a comfortable stay including ample tea/coffee and enough lotions and potions in the... More

Bob and Mary Flint are excellent hosts without being obtrusive in any way. They do excellent breakfasts. The house is old but strikingly clean, the bathrooms have been upgraded since our last stay in 2011 which is a huge improvement and adds to the comfort Our stay this time was for 4 nights, we love the situation on the river,...

Set in a beautiful location with good amenities. Owners were very helpful and friendly, couldn't do enough for you, but not in an intrusive fashion. The rooms were probably the cleanest I've ever been in, being an older property the beams & little nooks can pick up dust, not here. Gleaming bathroom and room. Bed was comfortable and food was...

We decide to return on past visits and nothing has changed our minds about the cross keys, excellent hosts, great value and delicious breakfast. We cant fault the accommodation or our host's. Very friendly family hotel, nice walks along the river and close to local amenities, WONDERFUL
