This guest house is far from city centre and sights and close to the bar street. The room had very little natural light and only one window which faced a wall. It was noisy as the room was close to reception, we could hear the phone ringing, people talking through the walls and people walking up and down the stairs.... More

Thank you for your comments. When you made the booking with booking.com you booked a tariff that did not include breakfast. This was stated on your booking form under "meal plan" - no meal plan was included in your booking. Following the confusion and misunderstanding regarding your booking you were offered a full English breakfast for £6.00 per person, you... More

We decided to stay away for the night so we could visit a city restaurant and not have have to worry about taxing home as my wife wanted to treat me for my 50th.

Spotlessly clean guest house. Very friendly and attentive staff/owners and breakfast was cooked to perfection. Great variety of cooked items and fruit. Nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend this guest house and would stay here again if I came back to Norwich.

Stayed here for a Football weekend with my Son and chose it due to the excellent reviews, price, free parking, free wifi and location. Football was a let down, but the Hotel wasn't!
