Wensum Guest House
Ranked #18 of 80 Norwich B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 16, 2013

I agree with the very positive comments of most reviewers, and will just add that we were also impressed by the generously filled complimentary drinks tray in the room and the size of the bathroom - capacious, to say the least! Maybe some of those who complain about the size of their ensuite facilities should try joining the rest of us in 'steerage'!

Clean, spacious and comfortable room with everything we needed.

Breakfast was delicious and of a very good quality.

Check in was between 4-9pm, which was not mentioned when booking through hotels.com but is on the confirmation email.
Would definitely stay again.

Both my partner and I enjoyed our four night say here. Our room was well decorated, clean and comfortable. Breakfasts were very good and the service was excellent. Also a very good bus service into town so we were able to do more walking around the town centre. We would certainly return and recommend to our friends.

This place is excellently located for the city centre and the university. The rooms are modern, nicely furnished with everything you could need, a good size and very comfortable. We loved the homely feel and warmth. The breakfast was delicious, a nice choice and home cooked. Very good value, I would recommend this B&B for sure.

Having been cancelled by The Ivydene, also in Norwich, we booked into the Wensum Guest House.I dont think the Ivydene could have bettered The Wensum. We were welcomed by Nick,who showed us to our room (number 8) which turned out to be a family room, so we had plenty of room to move about and leave our bags,also it was just inside the front door really handy when it came to unloading and loading the car. The room was really comfortable,shower was great.The breakfast was fantastic,so much to choose from, there was even bread pudding, one of my favorite things. All the staff were really friendly and helpful. Will certainly book there again when we go back to Norwich.

Room Tip: Book this guest house you wont be disappointed.

My room was modern, comfortable and spotless. I also didn't mind using the shared bathroom - which was next door. The staff were very welcoming. Breakfast was great too. The location is a little further from the main centre than I would have liked, but it did mean I got free parking, and the walk into town isn't too bad.

Stayed here whilst visiting my daughter who is at UEA - we initially had to cancel the first weekend we booked at very short notice due to the heavy snow but this wasn't a problem for them and they transferred our booking to the following weekend at no extra cost. The service was warm and welcoming and the room was spotless - breakfast was excellent and they even said our daughter could join us (not that she did, being a student early breakfast was a no no!!). We only stayed one night but were very impressed and will stay again.
A really lovely guest house
