We've just returned from our friend's wedding. We had an amazing time. The food was lovely and the venue was ideal. The staff were friendly and made the bride and groom feel really supported. We finished off with a swim in the pool. It was really warm, despite the overcast weather. Would recommend for a wedding.

The double room ensuite that I booked was nothing like I had expected from the photo on the website. We were shown to room 21 with a four poster double bed and a rather tired looking gloomy room. I did not feel well and did not complain but in retrospect I feel very disappointed in the hotel and would not... More

We choose this hotel because it has adjoining rooms which enable my wife and I to take our 3 grandchildren (11,10,7) and still have privacy. Both rooms have full facilities with bathrooms. The childrens' room has 3 single beds The hotel is convenient for Norwich, The Broads (Wroxham is close) and the coast.

Last weekend we took over the entire hotel for our son's wedding. The ceremony, decorations, reception, food and rooms were all faultless. The staff were all attentive, hard-working and keen to please. The owner, Ian, could not have been more helpful and the same is true of Becky, the wedding organiser. Outstanding in all regards. Thank you so much for... More

Stayed here for two nights when attending a friend's wedding. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. There was a wedding in the hotel (different than the one we were attending) and i was slightly concerned with the noise. However, we were given a room entirely at the end of the corridor which was certainly well-thought through and welcomed. The... More

From the photos this looks like a quiet period hotel but most, if not all of the rooms, are in a modern annex. It is also situated on a very busy main road that is very noisy. The overflow car park is quite a way from the reception so our tip would be to drive up to reception and unload... More

The Old Rectory Hotel is a pleasant mostly modern hotel. The rooms are reasonably well equipped and spacious and the dining room is light and airy. The grounds are also attractive and there is plenty of parking. The breakfast was good and the dinner reasonable but a little expensive. The staff were uniformly friendly. Would recommend to others.

Decided on this hotel based on the good reviews and poor choices available in the city during the UEA graduation period. No regrets. Although travelling into Norwich was a daily 20 min journey, the ambiance, service, surroundings and fresh clean air more than made up for it. There aren't many rooms, but they were clean with comfortable beds and modern... More

Pleasant hotel, friendly and helpful staff. Adequate rooms, and nice grounds. Heated outdoor pool. Nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was very tasty, and the evening meal good. Walls were paper thin, could hear the neighbours TV over ours!

After having the worst experience at another hotel, we called up here and were immediately accommodated too. Absolutely stunning hotel and brilliant facilities. Staff are very helpful and good value for what you get. Excellent for a retreat type holiday. Would return
