Had a two night stay with my sisters. What a beautiful hotel this will be when it is fully refurbished. The owner, Roger, couldn't do enough to make us feel comfortable, he even met us at the railway station on our arrival!! The hotel needs a lot of sympathetic TLC which will not be a cheap endeavour, but when finished it will surely be the place to stay at in King's Lynn.

Stayed two nights. Host Roger was a delightful man - nothing was too much trouble. After 3 months ownership (and I suspect hefty investment) he is refurbishing this lovely, spacious Victorian hotel room by room. Our room was in need of a makeover but was adequate, reflected in the price. Ample parking, warm room, spotless bedlinen etc. and a generous, well cooked breakfast. A short walk from the riverfront via a lovely park (well lit at night). Really enjoyed our stay and will probably go back once the renovations are completed. Deserves to do well and fully expect to rate more highly on a return visit.

Just returned from a 2 night stay at this lovely hotel.[Nov 2013] The interior needs updating but it was very comfortable.The rooms had flat screen tv, tea, coffee etc and toiletries. Lovely clean bedding and towels. The bar was closed at the time of our visit although the alcohol license has been applied for. There is a comfortable lounge for guest use & the dining room is very nice. Lovely, freshly cooked breakfast at any time we chose. The owner, Roger, has only been there for a few months but couldn't be more helpful, suggesting restaurants etc. We will definitely return. Looking forward to seeing the refurbishment!!!

Traditional hotel with English breakfast - nothing fancy - all rooms en suite, about 15-20 minutes by foot from Kings Lynn Minster. The hotel has ample parking space. The hotel is a bit old fashion and needs refurbishing, but all the essentials are there, such as good heating, a good shower, tea/coffee facilities, and a comfortable bed.

Many thanks for the feedback. Yes, the refurbishment is on the way. In the meantime we are working very hard on the service side to make sure people enjoy their stay. I have only owned the place since the beginning of August and I think we have improved in that time. Come back next Easter when some of the redecoration will be completed.

stayed at the Russett House Hotel when visited Kings Lynn for family business . Arrived later than expected but nothing was too much trouble for mein host - heating on and was given a key should i want to stay out late - bedroom double and single bed - for single occupation - fluffy towels and toiletries on bed - everything spotless - tea, coffee, chocolate etc on hospitality tray - flat tv - but didnt stay in tho - breakfast was any time required - a bonus - freshly cooked - host Roger imparted he had a few people staying on night work so would get up extra early when needed to cook them breakfast - daily maid service - and should wish to lounge a while a comfortable room available - and teas coffees etc if required - and even offered to drive me to station at end of stay - cant praise it highly enough - apparently there are plans for refurbishment - it had only been taken over a couple of months - and when this has taken place a very high star value would be warranted .

Room Tip: all rooms are of equal quality
