I stayed with Olga and Maurice for 4 weeks while I worked a temporary contract in Norwich. From the initial email dealings to checking out, everything was professional but more importantly, warm and friendly. They went out of their way to help me! Breakfast is delicious (I was partial to an omelette or a full English/Irish Breakfast) and there is a fridge and a microwave for guest use, which came in very handy for me. Olga and Maurice are incredibly friendly and I felt as though I was treated as well as family-they always had time for a chat and knew my breakfast preferences very quickly-Maurice even lent me reading material!
My room, a zebra theme, was nicely sized with a wonderful ensuite and had lovely tea/coffee facilities with biscuits and water replenished daily. I also had a nice view of the backyard area, especially wonderful as there was quite a bit of snow while I was in Norwich. They knew all the transport links and even sat down with me to help me figure out the best way to get to work. The B&B is on a main roundabout and there are numerous buses that go by-or it's a nice 30 minute stroll into the city centre. For it's location, it wasn't very noisy. They had good suggestions for restaurants/pubs in the area and things to do in Norwich itself. The rooms had free wifi and each is themed to a South African or Irish design as Olga is the former and Maurice the latter. Olga even organized to change my pillows with no problems as the first night the pillows were too high for my neck. The attention to detail is wonderful and this place is truly a wonderful testament to them.
If I am back in Norwich, I will certainly be back to Arrandale Lodge! Highly recommended to all!!
