“Fab food, very friendly owner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2007

First of all, I just would like to point out that the hotel is actually in Attleborough, not Wymondham as listed on Tripadvisor.
The hotel is a handsome Georgian house, not far from the A11.
The food was excellent and turned out to be very good value for money.
We were welcomed by the owner, who treated us like long lost friends, and who had a genuine "nothing is too much trouble" attitude, which was a refreshing change from a large number of hotels in Britain.
The decor is classy without being fussy, and the whole place was spotless.
I would not hesitate to return and would feel happy in recommending the place to anyone visiting Norfolk.

Had a lovely stay. Staff attentive, rooms clean and spacious with thoughtful touches in the room:- fruit baskets. Food was wonderful. Would highly recommend this hotel.

This is a great place and has everything you could ask for in a small hotel, very clean rooms, relaxed atmosphere.

I have stayed twice now and shall be visiting again in the following weeks on business. Both times I have arrived very late and received a warm friendly greeting from the owners.

On both occasions I have had a comfortable room with en-suite, immaculate throughout. Breakfast was very nice prepared with fresh local ingredients.

I would recommend.

We had decided to stay at this supposive Country House Hotel as it appeared lovely from the website. Believe me this is nothing like a country house hotel, more like an average B&B in a fairly grotty town. We were very disappointed by the service we received especially from the gentleman owner who was abrupt and not at all helpful. Not at all the right character for this type of business - it helps if you like people! There was no charisma about the place from the room we were in to the tiny dining room. The food we received was fairly average and lacking any real flavour. Breakfast was pleasant enough though. Our room was a good size, however, the bathroom was a bit grimy and looked unkept. All in all a grave disappointment, we shall definitely not be re-visiting.

NorfolkSpanner, Owner at Sherbourne House, responded to this review, January 23, 2007
I was obviously concerned at the negative review dated 30th May 2006. We took over the hotel on April 10th 2006 and I would be grateful to know whether the reviewer actually stayed at Sherbourne House before or after April 10th 2006. The comments regarding myself (gentleman owner) as being "abrupt" and "unhelpful" are a little odd as, for all my faults, I would not list these !! I would very much appreciate more specific details of how I was unhelpful, in order to try and improve the service we offer.
Thankyou.
