On arrival we were a little disappointed with the look of the Hotel and the road it was on. But when we went inside we found our room to be spotless and had all the facilities needed for an overnight stay. The shower was powerful and hot. Bed linen was lovely and clean but the bed was uncomfortable. Breakfast was... More

We visited Norwich this time to attend our daughters graduation fron UEA. As before the accommodation was spotlessly clean, the breakfast top notch, and the shower powerful. Our stay coincided with a heat wave so we were grateful for the fan we found in the wardrobe. The staff are really friendly. There is ample parking.

The guest house is walking distance from town, but also has a very good bus service. The staff were lovely and it was clean. We arrived outside of reception hours, but our key was left in a key box so we could get in. Excellent parking. I had room 14, and it was a bit noisy - from the room... More

Good pubs close by inc Fat Cat and Belle View. Only issue was very slow breakfast, I couldn't wait just to have order taken so left without which is a shame. Would... More

With a big breakfast included, this becomes a great value. We noticed couples, singles and families staying here. It's on a bus route so a two-hope gets you right where you need to be. We opted to leave the car in the parking lot. Warning for those with children. The water was very hot in the shower. Double room with... More
