A compact and charming apartment right in the centre of Norwich with parking. A good base and only minutes walk away from everything. The apartment was very clean and we found a lovely welcome package waiting for us. The heating in the apartment keeps the place really warm. You will never be cold staying there. The bed is a small double and has a very firm mattress. The sofa and chair is ok but I would have preferred a couple of good squishy arm chairs to sink into after a long day exploring the city. The bathroom is lovely with the deepest bath I've ever seen. Was tempted to buy some bubble bath to try it out!!!
The owners, Lily and Keith, was a pleasure to deal with. Really helpful and informative. Great communication.
The apartment was in a perfect location for us being close to the city and in walking distance of the Golden Triangle. Parking was great, anyone who knows Norwich knows how difficult parking can be. Having a dedicated parking space minutes for the City was fantastic. Wonderful welcome basket was a lovely touch. The bed as mentioned by a previous reviewer is a small double, which was not a major problem for us but could be for others. However this is trivial in comparison to the apartment overall which was truly lovely. We will be back that's for sure!
Recently spent 5 nights at this appartment located In Upper St Giles, Norwich. For a couple who wished to actively explore the city and its immediate locality, this provided an excellent base. The car could be parked in close proximity and with easy access to the appartment at no extra cost. The bathroom is located at the bottom of a narrow flight of stairs and could prove difficult for disabled/ elderly visitors. The ability to do washing is a real bonus. The lack of a DVD player could prove problematic if bad weather prevailed. The bed is comfortable but is only a small double. There is an excellent Deli two minutes walk away which provides breakfast and light meals. The owners are friendly and helpful.

I stayed here for a long weekend in Norwich, and was absolutely delighted with my choice.
Location: Just a 5 minute walk from the centre but on a quiet and pretty road with an excellent deli. Just over the bridge on the other side is the Golden Triangle with some great pubs and the Plantation Garden.
Flat: Immaculate and beautifully presented, with comfy bedding and a really luxurious bath. The kitchen area is well-equipped, and there was a thoughtful welcome pack of goodies and a folder of advice and brochures on the local area. Although it was a chilly weekend, the flat was always cosy and warm, and a lovely place to come back to after adventuring!
Places to visit: Apart from the usual sightseeing places, I'd recommend The Bicycle Shop for the best brunch I've had in ages, and The Rumsey Wells for a laid-back drink on their sofas. There's some wonderful bookshops you can get lost in for a while too.
Hosts: Keith and Lily could not have been more helpful and accommodating. Quick to respond to any queries, and I very much appreciated the keycode system meaning I was able to check in late after a long journey!
I'd highly recommend this flat, and I'll certainly be doing so for any of my friends and family visiting this fine city.
Thanks Keith and Lily!
