“Fantastic, the website doesn't do it justice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

We booked a room here as we were attending a wedding nearby. We couldn't have been happier with our choice. So welcoming and friendly, very accommodating towards our baby. The room was extremely comfortable, everything seemed brand new, and the shower was excellent. Very luxurious! We were just sorry we didn't get a chance to make use of the huge bath! Unfortunately we weren't able to stay for breakfast, but it smelled amazing cooking as we checked out, and it would have been lovely to sit in the sunny breakfast room with beautiful views over the countryside. Highly Recommended and if we're back in the area we would definitely stay again.
I have never felt compelled to write a review before, but we only booked here as the wedding reception venue was full up, but as it turned out we had much nicer accommodation! You don't get a true sense of how lovely this place is from the website.

Amanda is so welcoming you feel your part of her family. Immediately given tea and coffee on arrival. Very helpful with local eateries and places to visit. Very comfortable, spacious bedroom and bathroom. Hostess even provided an 'honesty' light drink and chocolate communal fridge in corridor. Breakfast to die for. We used the B&B as a base to visit several National Trust houses and gardens.
Would probably have been cheaper to book direct thro Amanda's own website rather than 'LateRooms.com' but still excellent value for money.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED B&B.

Me, my fiancée and 1 year old daughter stayed for a night at Moorsticks. The Accomodation is first class and the owner is very welcoming. breakfast was great and there was nothing we wanted for. Quick drive to town center and out to the broads. Lovely quiet location, highly recommend when looking for a first class B and B.

Having had some difficulty in finding one night accommodation at short notice I was very relieved to obtain this booking with Late Rooms for self and two friends on our annual "vintage transport" weekend. We rang to say that we were unavoidably going to arrive late but need not have worried. We were greeted enthusiastically by Amanda and shown our rooms immediately and also the nearby fridge with drinks and snacks and, a rare and welcome touch, "help youself, honesty box" although as it happened we didn't need to use that. Before leaving us to unpack Amanda delivered another nice surprise by asking if we would like some tea/coffee - we would, and this was served within minutes in the lovely dining room - and with biscuits - while we watched the TV in there and enjoyed a friendly chat with her.
The rooms were impeccably furnished and had high quality linen and fittings. The bed was extremely comfortable and my bathroom was great with a lovely shower, heated towel rail, and spotless tiling. The view from the bedroom window was idyllic with a long panorama of fields and total rural peace. Breakfast next day was superb - served "by appointment" at the exact time of the guests' choice. Individually cooked to the requirements of each person and of the highest quality content in every respect, and plenty of friendly but unintrusive and welcome chat in the meantime.
A totally satisfactory stay in a most welcoming house in exceptionally beautiful surroundings.

Room Tip: No need - all are impeccable and its not a large establishment.

Moorsticks is just outside of Norich and whilst is fully in the country, you are just a minutes drive from civilisation (or a Morrisons supermarket.) It's a coachouse style building that is attached to a large house that sits on a few acres of land. There is plenty of parking and it's a pretty location. The "coachouse" is a new building, with the entrance into the breakfast room, and then up a few steps into the rooms that partly in the roof. Firstly, it's clean. And I mean clean. It's modern, welcoming and the rooms whilst basic to a certain degree do have some nice touches. Our room wasn't huge but was big enough, with lots of hanging space. The bathroom is fairly small, but is very nicely finished (wall to wall tiles) and the shower was very good. The window as well as normal blinds, also had a blackout blind - a nice touch. Bedding was clean, looked new and was all very comfy. In the hallway at the top of the stairs, there is a small fridge - has cans of drink and chocolate and an honesty box for you to pay, again - a nice touch and came in useful.
Our host was Amanda and she couldn't have been more friendly or helpful - usually staying in the big chain hotels, it's nice to have that human element to a stay that they cannot compete with. We arranged a time for breakfast the next day and what a treat. Firstly there was cereals, yoghurts, muffins, fruit (including fresh strawberries) to help yourself to. Amanda bought us a jug of orange juice and left it on the table with us. I had a large pot of coffee, and my patner was given a big pot of tea. (Just what weas needed after attending a wedding the day before.) The cooked breakfast was very good, not sure it could be bettered. Cooked to perfection with quality food, this really set us up for the day.
Would definatley reccomend Moorsticks - a quality B&B at it's best.

Our host, Amanda, was everything a traveler could hope for. Kind, friendly and a great cook, Amanda made sure all of our needs were taken care of. The breakfast really is a highlight...go for the full breakfast if you have never tried one...the tea is great and the coffee is not bad either. The room was comfortable and nicely decorated. The bathroom was modern and clean, and lots of hot water. Check to see availability of Internet if that is important to you, as it was not available in the room as advertised...Amanda said she was working on it and we believe her...we would definitely go back if we were in the area again.

Room Tip: Splurge and go for the double room as the extra space is nice and the bathroom is worth it, too.
