I spent a Saturday night at the Tennyson after arriving by motorcycle. A very warm and friendly welcome from Agna the host. The room was warm and comfortable (No 2) and shower and toilets immaculate. The breakfast was excellent with a great selection. Will come again. Thank you Steve

Would highly recommend this very reasonably priced guest house. We stayed for one night on Friday 18 November for hubby's birthday. We were in Room 6 at the back which was a comfortable double and this along with the beautifully decorated spacious shower room was spotlessly clean. The guest house has a nice guest lounge where you can help yourself...

Booked a single room and was delighted to find I was put in a double at no extra cost. The room and ensuite were spotlessly clean as were the dining and lounge areas.

The Tennyson is situated to the south of the city at the bottom of the High Street on the A15, opposite South Common, a protected area of natural beauty. The A15 is the main route from Norwich to York. This means our location gives easy access to the Wolds, Coast and other places of interest in Lincolnshire. We provide the traveler with a warm and comfortable room and a substantial breakfast. For the tourist, we are 20 minutes walk from the City Centre with all its amenities and attractions. In addition to the colour TV, courtesy tray, telephone charging unit, etc in all rooms, we provide free WiFi. Also, in the guests' lounge there is computer and printer exclusive for guests' use.
