The Horse and Groom
Ranked #2 of 6 Swaffham B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 24, 2014

The owners advertise this as no frills accommodation. That's just what you get. I stayed for one night in room 7. It was plenty big enough as was the en suite. Everything was clean and tidy. Hannah, the landlady, couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. Although the room overlooked the main road, by 10pm there was hardly any traffic.

Attracted by the good reviews I had supper here. Friendly pub good service and the food was wholesome, good value and very large portions. However, it lacked any real style or quality, very ordinary really. Don't know what the B&B was like because I just came for dinner.

Very friendly owners/staff made me feel very welcome and looked after with a very laid back atmosphere. Great food in even greater quantities and the choice extensive. Tiny single room but not overly claustrophobic and always good to have your own wc/shower with facilities to have a cuppa when ever you want. Decor may appear dated but fits in well with the character of the place and the town itself. Good to have a pub attached so no hike for a drink or food. Very quiet and the bed was just to my liking resulting in a very restful couple of nights. Great central location for Norfolk and it's attractions. Highly recommended!

We have just spent (9th/10th November 2013) a fantastic weekend at the Horse and Groom in Swaffham. The friendliness of the staff is well beyond what we have had in the past, everything was spotless and as for the meals, well, I'm still waiting for my belly to go down.
We cannot recommend the "Horse and Groom" and all of the staff enough.

Stayed at the horse and groom whilst visiting family. Trudy the owner made us feel really welcome and was lovely. Our room was clean and tidy and it was nice that everything was topped up each day so we didn't run out of tea/coffee/milk. The food cooked by Trudys husband was really good and all fresh ingredients used. Would definitely recommend this place to others and would stay again if in the area. Only a few minutes away from the shops and market, the horse and groom was really handy to get to and from. Thank you for a lovely stay and for making us so welcome.

I booked this with some trepidation having seen 2 of the reviews below (the ones written while the owners were on holiday). I need not have worried. The Horse and Groom is first class; the owner and all the staff are exceptionally helpful. Most importantly, the room I stayed in was spotless. As it was at the front there was some traffic noise (the room is double glazed) but this was minor.

All in all first class value for money and I would certainly book again if in the area; I do not normally recommend hotels/pubs but I am pleased to do so on this occassion.
