I have been going to Fakenham for over 15 years we only live in Heacham. Its the first time I have been into this establishment. We only had a couple of drinks as we had to drive home. I have never had such a friendly welcome before. Because of the virus I wanted to sit outside and there were no tables left. The owner organised us a table and chairs from the bar so we could sit by the river. AMAZING. I will be going back for a meal very soon. We had excellent service. Can't wait to go back we will prob book a room then nobody has to drive. Thank you so much for a great couple of hours.

Dirty smelly and apparently toenail clippings on the floor around our bed and the musky smell thru out this entire establishment is not a valid reason for refund. We checked in at 1pm and out again at 3 pm . The manager considers this reason to charge me £99 as a cancellation fee. Well if we'd known it was going to be this dire we'd have just cancelled and not bothered to travel 110 miles to be let down. Truly awful. Just pop your head in the door and tell me it doesn't smell. My issue is that we found it to be awful so left promptly. £99 !!!!!!

We stayed for two nights at the end of December. The Hotel is good value for money as the bedrooms were of a good size, comfortable bed and a range of cupboards for storage. Good hot shower and coffee, teas, bottles of water, biscuits etc always topped up. The receptionist very efficient and friendly as were any other staff that we saw, the breakfast was excellent and well cooked and a quick service. Some of the furniture a little dated but for the price excellent!

Home cooked food, lovely staff, great bar and clean, fresh rooms. Lots of choice at restaurant and first class breakfast. One of my favourite Christmas breaks. This is a real gem in beautiful Norfolk. I’ll be back. Thanks to all staff for making this a special Christmas

Stayed at Wensum Lodge Hotel Fakenham for one night. Went to the Thursford Spectacular Christmas Show which was ( I have to say) excellent especially the orchestra and singers- fantastic! The hotel stay even though it was a 3 star hotel was very pleasant indeed. The hotel room and bathroom were clean, tidy everything you needed including hairdryer tea and coffee making facilities and biscuits. The evening meal was a roast which was delicious and the breakfast was excellent! Jay the owner was a wonderful host , very friendly, and helpful. Tyler was a very pleasant young man on the waiting staff. Would definitely recommend!
