Clean comfortable accommodation and a very good breakfast. We will be back again next year and wouldn't stay anywhere else. If you are arriving by train use the pathway near the right side...

We came to Norwich for some location filming and as new visitors to the City, we were made to feel incredibly welcome by Robert, Maxine and their staff . Although the building is currently undergoing some internal and external renovations, this did not affect our stay in any way and the work they have had done so far is very...

This guest house is far from city centre and sights and close to the bar street. The room had very little natural light and only one window which faced a wall. It was noisy as the room was close to reception, we could hear the phone ringing, people talking through the walls and people walking up and down the stairs....

Thank you for your comments. When you made the booking with booking.com you booked a tariff that did not include breakfast. This was stated on your booking form under "meal plan" - no meal plan was included in your booking. Following the confusion and misunderstanding regarding your booking you were offered a full English breakfast for £6.00 per person, you...
