A one night stay for a mix of celebrations, one for a birthday followed by a sad occasion (a memorial service for family member) the next day. Despite this, the hotel was as expected. Staff extremely helpful and friendly. Bar and Dining room staff were attentive. Altogether we occupied three rooms, a sister and her partner shared a double, with another sister in a single room. My mother and I shared the twin-bedded room that was disabled friendly. It was at first sight clean and spacious. The only problem was that it was rather dark. The so-called Eco friendly lights are dreadful especially for my mother who has macular disease, even though I personally found the room OK. I know that this isn't the only hotel using these lights now, probably because of Government interference, but I am beginning to think of packing a few of our own "old style" bulbs just in case our next hotel room is as gloomy.

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback after your recent stay with us.

I am delighted to see that you enjoyed your stay with us even though your break was a mixture of celebrations.

We take note of your comments regarding the light bulbs in your room and can confirm this is a mix of government guidelines and trying to reduce our carbon footprint.

Again thank you for your comments we shall hope to welcome you back to Park Farm Hotel soon.

We planned to stay one night as a short break but the hotel was so nice we stayed for a second night. The exec rooms are furnished to a very high standard and we had a small, fairly private, courtyard outside our room. The food was excellent and the leisure facilities too. The staff were very friendly.
It is a short drive to Norwich but that was not a problem.
We would definitely stay here again.

The hotel was booked by one of my friends, so I did no research into this... based on the name I was expecting a coutry house hotel with a spa... what I saw when I got there is an average building with average decor and no atmosphere.
It was OK for my stay, but I would rather stay at Travelodge for a lot less money.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We appreciate all guest feedback as it helps to ensure we are achieving the high standards we set ourselves.

I am disappointed you thought the hotel lacked atmosphere and found the building average.

Park Farm Hotel has been transformed over the last 40 years from a dairy farm into one of the regions leading hotels and we often receive positive comments regarding the transformation and friendly but professional atmosphere.

We often receive positive feedback for our rosette awarded restaurant and extensive indoor leisure facilities. We would hope our customers agree that these facilities justify a higher price than your average Travelodge.

On another note we trust you had an enjoyable time at your friends wedding.

Kind regards

This hotel is great mid-week, but can be noisy with wedding and other parties at the weekend. It is a little way out of Norwich, so ideally need a car. There is a health club which is used by non-residents.

Room Tip: Ask for room well away from function rooms is staying at the weekend.

Thank you for your review after your recent stay with us.

We do often hold functions over weekends but find this does not generally effect our guests.

I always recommend booking with the hotel directly to ensure that any guests specific needs are met and any guests not attending functions can ensure they are given a room in a quiet part of the hotel.

Again thank you for your feedback and we shall hope to see you at Park Farm Hotel again soon.

Kind regards
