Working in the area so booked the Wensum. Plenty of parking on the drive of the property, the staff were really friendly and helpful when we enquired about where to eat out. We had three lads sharing one room and the room was huge so weren't cramped at all. Two single beds and a king size which I snaffled!! Big...

Myself and two friends stayed at the Wensum for just one night but it was great. We had a three bed room which was very spacious and clean. Tea and coffee facilities in the room and a TV which was the bonus! Breakfast was included and had a great choice! Reception was helpful with anything we needed would highly recommend!

This guest house is very comfortable. It is in a very quiet and beautiful neiborhood 15 min from the center. There is a bus stop two minutes away and there is a bus all night long. The hotel is very clean and the stuff very polite. The beds are perfect and the breakfast too!

This is the second time we have stayed. It wasn't quite as good as our first visit. My bed felt more like an airbed than a proper bed but everyone else said theirs were nice and comfy. The breakfast both times were lovely and very good for the price of the rooms. The room we had was large, with plenty...

Ok photos on this one clearly got mixed up, this place does not go on to the river so that's that first mystery cleared up. Next how did this place get a good rating? This is a hard one to solve. Our too. Was a good size so I don't understand why it couldn't be en-suite as one clearly would...

I booked into the Wesum fro one night via Expedia. When I arrived the receptionist could find no record of my booking for a single room with shared bathroom. On checking further she discovered that she had signed someone else into my designated room under my name. According to her this was 'not a problem! I was then offered a...

I am very sorry that an error occurred when you were booking in. The receptionist on duty was very new and inexperienced and unfortunately there were 2 guests with similar names and she got the rooms mixed up. Due to the fact we were fully booked that evening, there was nothing else we could do but ask you to return...

We stayed at this guesthouse on the 1st Feb for one night, my mum my sister and myself, they were very helpful by putting an extra bed in the room so we didn't have to share, the bathroom was lovely and warm, shower nice and hot, the room was very clean with tea making facilities with hot chocolate and biscuits....

A nice little Georgian style guest house, comfortable rooms, great shower! Staff were polite and welcoming, breakfast was really nicely done with good, local ingredients. It's only a short walk away from the city centre too!
