“An excellent apartment in a great location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

A great apartment in an excellent location, well worth the costs for a long weekend in Norwich, which is really nice to visit.
A day on the broads is a must during your stay.

“Great location, but poorly equipped”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012 for a stay in September 2010

people found this review helpful

This is a great location, only about 4 minutes walk from the cathedral and incredibly easy to get to all the city centre places, lovely restaurants. Hardly needed to use the car, although having a secure parking space was a great bonus.

It was obviously a very new holiday let, as none of the information you'd expect in a holiday apartment was provided - no leaflets, maps or brochures of things to do in the area. It would have been nice to have information about local shops, including opening times, as well. We were expecting to find wi-fi in the apartment as advertised, but it's actually available from local pubs which reach the apartment, and you have to pay for it. The directions were also disappointing - despite asking twice we were just given a postcode - not everyone has sat-nav! The one way system is quite confusing, so we ended up driving in circles for a while before we found it. This could easily be rectified by providing a map of the location and written directions from all the main roads into the city, as we've received when staying in other places.

The apartment looks lovely, but more thought could have been put into equipment and furnishings provided. The lighting is incredibly poor in both living room and bedroom - hopeless if you want to read a book or the newspaper. There is only one (tiny) bedside table, again, hopeless if you both wear glasses and need somewhere to put them down! And made it impossible to read in bed as there's no bedside light one side and nowhere to put a book. The kitchen was also poorly equipped, with not many mugs, bowls or plates, and the bowls seemed to be cast offs from somewhere else as they were all square and difficult to use!
