Where do I start, from the moment we booked Park Farm for our wedding we knew we had got it right. On our first meeting with Sue, she made us feel relaxed and special this continued on several visits. Then came our wedding day, 26th April 2013, My bride to be arrived at the hotel early and was treated like a princess from the moment she arrived. When our guest arrived we used the main bar, some hotel guests decided to have their lunch in the bar area which was not a problem for us. The ceremony went smoothly, and afterwards we returned to the main bar for a drink while the room was turned round for our drinks reception, we had arranged for this to be on the lawn but unfortunately mother nature had other ideas but luckily for us this only lasted for the drinks reception and we got out into Park farms lovely gardens for our photos. Our wedding breakfast was superb the service was second to none. In the evening reception the staff were great and our buffet was even better, our kids were making good use of the hotel grounds and most parents were aware of the ponds around the hotel so knew to keep an eye on their kids.
We spent the night in the boutique room and this was luxury at its best. We started the next day with a swim and spa in the hotels leisure centre and a full breakfast. The second night was again spent in the same room and the hotel added two extra beds for our children (5&7) who could not believe the room especially the Jacuzzi.
We have had several guests comment that its the best wedding they have been to and to be totally honest if you ever get the chance to stay here I recommend you take it with both hands.
Once again I would like to thank Park Farm for making our day extra special.

Park Farm is the nicest hotel I've stayed at, and believe my I've stayed at a few!
The staff are warm and friendly and this includes management, reception, bar and restaurant. The room was comfy, elegant clean and quiet.
The food was a sensation!!
I honestly did not have one fault except of my own....that I couldn't stay longer.
Highly recommended.

No pictures, best are on their web site. I went to my nephews wedding 26th April 2012. The hotel has a long drive off the old London Road, pleasant site with plenty of trees lawn ed areas, plenty of car parking spread over the front and rear of property. as you approach the main reception the automatic doors spread wide open (and there in lies the problem for parents of small children) anyway the reception staff were pleasant and seem very keen for a good review, I thought this as the large screen beside the main desk has Trip Adviser constantly on it. asking for a good review. the guests were ushered into the main bar area. I felt a bit bemused as did other guests and hotel residents were seated all over the room eating their lunch. Now whenever I've been to weddings all over the place and normally you get ushered into a private room. so awkward for both sets of guests. But that was only my opinion. then we were sent into a waiting area for drinks like a conservatory area nice the wedding took place in here and it was nice for a smallish party of around 100. Then the photos outside between showers, then into the wedding breakfast. I could not fault the dinner. As a regular contributor I asked other guests what their food was like and everyone said excellent. I also asked what they thought of the first bar and the answer was much the same as mine. The staff did their best to keep guests happy and everyone had a good time. Now onto the main entrance doors. As in any wedding children of all ages like to run around and if a door opens they will go through it. The auto sensor is set too low so younger children will open the doors and out they go, straight into the path of cars, taxis ext. Park Farm should think about this even though it's the responsibility of parents to watch their kids. But as you will know kids can move like lightening when they want to. All in all we had a brilliant time and I believe this could be an excellent venue for anyone looking for a venue.
I didn't stay but our family did and they all slept well in comfortable rooms.

Dear RushieSenior,

Thank you for your comments regarding the wedding reception you attended at Park Farm Hotel. We are glad you had an enjoyable day. The bride and groom have also contacted us to say what a wonderful day they had. With regards to your comments about the automatic doors. These doors do conform with all health and safety regulations which include the height of the sensors. We do make every effort to "Police" young children but ultimately it is the parents responsibility for them.

Once again thank you for your comments and we hope to welcome you back to Park Farm Hotel soon.

Kind Regards

This hotel is good for conferences if you are driving. By train its a £20 taxi ride, which is bit steep and I've not been taken he same way twice. The rooms are all good, but the newer ones have slightly better facilities.

Room Tip: The new rooms are best

The room was excellent, clean and comfortable. The TV was ok, needed to be a bit bigger for the size of room. Staff polite and helpful and a nice swimming pool with good changing facilities. The restaurant is excellent and the breakfasts traditional and of a high standard. A shame that the surrounding countryside is a bit bland with no really interesting views. However, the area is quiet and the hotel one of those you can stay in for the sake of enjoying the hotel. Not overpriced.

This hotel is set in beautiful grounds a few miles outside of Norwich. Excellent leisure facilities and the room that I had was superbly equipped and furnished. The Table d'hote dinner was very nice but I thought expensive for what you get. There is little other choice locally so you really have to eat at the hotel. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. All in all a very pleasant stay.
