Could not have faulted the staff, cannot believe how polite and helpful they were, especially the man on the front desk, nothing was too much trouble. Rooms are beautifully clean and tidy and the breakfast was delicious, very quick service, could not have faulted anything. Cannot recommend enough and will be staying again!

Our room was beautifully clean and well equipped, plenty of tea and coffee, and a selection of excellent quality biscuits. Beds soooo comfortable and pristine. Breakfast excellent such a choice. Staff / reception could not have been more friendly and helpful, just lovely.

Welcomed by Kirsty who was very helpful during our stay. Room cosy and clean. Breakfast worth waking up for. Definitely visit again. Convenient for some excellent bars and restaurants as well as the Norwich Arts Centre.

The guest house is OK but for the price, I would have expected a bit more. We paid £75 and it was overpriced - especially for a shared bathroom. Also only opening reception @ 16:00 on the dot, and then checkout @ 10:30 - you're paying quite a lot for a shorter number of hours than you would get at...

My only criticism is that the stairs were very steep and windy and would be quite challenging for anyone...

Great guest house. We stayed for 2 nights in a double room with ensuite in the loft. It was a little hot due to weather but a fan is provided in the room. The room was lovely and quirky.
