“Home from Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Mum and I stayed at this lovely homely bed and breakfast on 19/04/14. From the moment we pulled into the drive I knew that we were going to enjoy our overnight stay. Phil and Dot were really friendly and welcomed us as if we were family but with a 'professional' edge. Offering us a cuppa before we got to our room which was great. When Phil showed us to our room (the twin) it was lovely, all clean and white with some lovely home from home touches and dual aspect windows which made it light and airy. The ensuite was small but it was totally functional for what an ensuite should be, the shower was amazing, really powerful and there was plenty of scalding hot water, at all times. Despite being near to a road it was quiet and we slept like logs. In the morning breakfast was served in the lounge/dining room, again feeling really 'homely', a range of cereals, fruit and yoghurts.......and of course the 'full' english. There was no rushing from Dot for us to pay the bill, and indeed I had the car packed before Mum settled up. I was really impressed to find this 'jewel' of a B&B in a sleepy little village. 10/10 for Phil and Dot at The Elms

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 3, Dual aspect windows really bright and airy

Would highly recommend this BnB, it is very clean and comfortable, especially the bed was so comfy! The cooked breakfast in the morning was delicious and we could pretty much have whatever we wanted and it was no trouble. The owners are lovely friendly people and made us feel very welcome. Excellent stay.

Had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful B& B. Had the single room and couldn't fault it. Everything was done to a very high standard. It was the second B & B I had stayed in that week, first in Kent, and there was no comparison, I found nothing to complain about only to praise. From the moment I arrived til I left I was made to feel at home, nothing was too much trouble for this fantastic couple. Look forward to staying there again soon,

The owners of this delightful B&B are charming and extremely welcoming, offering me tea and cake on arrival after a long drive, the use of the TV lounge and a lovely full English breakfast in the morning. I had a few extra needs and they did everything possible to accommodate me. The room was very comfortable and as well equipped as any larger hotel I've stayed in. I would say the most fitting phrase would be "extremely good value for money".

Ideally located for Snetterton race track and easy to find. We received a very friendly welcome and were offered tea and cake which was just what we needed after our journey. We were able to relax in the comfortable lounge/TV room. The bedroom was very comfortable and clean as was the ensuit shower room. Breakfast was delicious. A lovely place to stay.

Stayed whilst visiting Lotus, Snetterton and St Georges Distillery. The Elms is a great place to stay, very comfortable, very clean and excellent food. Dot and Phil made us very welcome, this our third visit to the Elms. Ideal base for our trip, two good pubs, a chinese restaurant and a traditional chippy all within five minutes walk.
