The jewel in the crown! Well we thought so. First impressions are an important element of any service and there is no doubt in our mind that we came away from a one night stay with a desire to return again to the Old Rectory, where the staff were outstanding, the food excellent and the accommodation very comfortable, with excellently...

As a tour operator this is just the hotel I was looking for! Handy location with beautiful gardens, convenient parking. Very comfortable & clean en-suite rooms. The service from the friendly staff was excellent, and nothing was too much trouble. Everyone was impressed by the menu the chef had set for us - it was very difficult to choose which... More

We stayed here 4 nights in early September, just after arriving from Australia. Booked direct with hotel. After a few roundabout turns in Norwich, we were on the right road and found the Old Rectory. Reception from Becky was very good. Our room was spacious and comfortable, evening having a small fridge, unusual for UK. Bed was comfortable and good... More

The friendliness of the staff was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel welcome straightaway. The food in the restaurant was first class. The bed was very comfortable and spacious! Lovely gardens.

We went for lunch with friends who live locally. The choices for the three course lunch were good and great value. The service was excellent and the staff very polite and helpful. All in all a great and enjoyable meal and good value. Well done we hope to be back next time we visit our friends in Spixworth.

Stayed here with my boyfriend for a night away. Cannot fault the hotel at all....lovely rooms and nice big bed.. We had the evening set meal which was really nice. Staff were very friendly and helpful...would definitely stay here again...only slight draw back was breakfast finished at 9.00 which is a bit early but apart from that can't fault it.

I was guest speaker at Broadland Rotary this week, and we started with a dinner. I eat at similar functions a lot, and this was better than average. Tasty, good portions, prompt friendly service. I have also held a wedding re emotion, and been to Christmas functions there. A reliable place to eat.

I was in this hotel last week when I visited UK. The only problem I found was that the location I had in my booking sent me to a fake place at night. The gps sent me to a place that there is no street but after driving 1 mile approximately I saw some colored lamps and there was the... More

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately some "sat nav" systems have been locating us the opposite side of the road and we are currently trying to get this corrected.

This was a 3 day stay with the intention of sketching and painting the Norfolk Broads, unfortunately the weather was very disappointing but The Old Rectory Hotel more than made up for my stay. My large room had a very comfortable king size bed enabled me to sleep like a log with very little outside noise. As for breakfast and... More

Myself and my girlfriend stayed here for the weekend and I was quite disappointed with the place. The decor was quite old, the room very distasteful, and corridor and carpets just worn out. The posts on the 4 poster bed were in the way of the TV, and the bed was smaller than we are used to. On the plus... More
