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...

Due to the fact we were fully booked that evening, there was nothing else we could do but ask you to return...

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!

I have stayed here a few times when visiting the Norwich branch of the company I work for. This place was a brilliant find - not only a reasonable price, but clean, tidy, well decorated and extremely helpful and friendly staff.

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!
