Lovely building as you pull up, a well cared for and very quiet B&B, provided everything we needed for the night. With the other guests moving around with the utmost respect for the other visitors. The little bowls of mints and jelly babies scattered around the Old Rectory were a nice touch... especially for a 5 year old boy exploring!...

Made a last minute enquiry for accommodation which was promptly answered and we spent a night there which was much appreciated. The room was lovely, well appointed and spotlessly clean. A beautiful building, stylish in its decoration and well situated in Kings Lynn. In the morning our Hostess was charming and a tasty full English Breakfast was a real treat....

Knowing the town geography helped and google came up with the old rectory. Decided to stay there and we were not disappointed, good old fashioned service, very quiet and relaxing atmosphere...

Stayed two nights in June. The building is lovely and we had an excellent stay. The room was nice and breakfast had everything you could want so we were very happy. Clive the owner is very welcoming and Kings Lynn is a nice town.

Goodwins Road seems to be in three bits and we kept going to the wrong bit! The car parking is in the front area - gravel with timber space dividers - don't park in the side drive which goes to the new house at the rear. After ringing the bell Clive took us round the side to the guest entrance,...

Clive is a very gracious host and has refurbished The Old Rectory to a good standard, retaining original fireplaces and windows. Our room was a good size (only lacking a full length mirror!) with plenty of light. Shower room small but adequate. Breakfast good, cooked if required but good selection of cereals, toast etc if not. Dining area nicely fitted...
