We booked the hotel as we wanted something close to the football ground. The views from the rear of the hotel, the bars and restaurant and our room were excellent.
We arrived an 1aam which was to early to book in so mentioned we would be back late and we eventually got back just before 11pm. We were welcomed with a smile from the scouse gentleman and led to our room which although on the small side was well equipped with a comfortable bed and quilt.
The next morning we were welcomed by the most cheerful waitress (Australian but has lived in the village over 25 years) you would find anywhere who shared her knowledge of the local area with enthusiasm suggesting we walk five minutes along the road to the river which was a great suggestion. It was a lovely walk with lots of birds and swans. The wiatress also gave us some bread to feed the birds!!
The chef is also a character
There is a fantastic real ale pub a 5 minute walk in the other direct; The Cat and Canary and its only another 10 minute walk to the football ground
The furniture in the bars and restaurant is a little tired but the views are lovely.
At £63 for a double room with breakfast it is great value and the staff made it extra special. A great find!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Whether you're planning to explore historic Norwich or soak up the scenery of the Norfolk Broads, you'd be hard pushed to find a hotel as perfectly placed as this. Nestled in a lovely spot on the banks of the River Yare, opposite Whittingham Country Park, the lodge houses 14 warm and welcoming rooms as well as a Crown Carvery. So you can enjoy the tranquility of the area with your choice of roast, freshly steamed vegetables, roast potatoes and Yorkshire puds. Norwich has some of the best medieval architecture in Britain with a Norman moat and Bailey Castle and a fine cathedral dating back to 1096. It's also home to the Norfolk Broads, the largest protected wetlands in the country. They're a mecca for sailors, motor-boaters, canoeists and fishing enthusiasts - although walkers, bird watchers and cyclists will find plenty to do without having to get wet. Norwich Aviation Museum is just up the road, too. ... more less
