I can highly recommend the Emsley Guest House. The couple running it treated me like a personal friend. The room was comfortable and immaculate. The breakfast mushroom omelette was to die for.

Received an immediate welcome as well as an offer of tea as soon as we arrived. Helpful information given about local sights. Room very clean. Breakfast punctual and very good selection. Overall an excellent Guest House. We'd suggest booking direct for best choice of rooms and rates.

First time my husband and I have stayed and we will be back. Pretty house just like a "Tardis" it goes on and up forever. Spotlessly clean real "Old School" care and attention.

The Emsley is a lovely Bed and Breakfast conveniently located near the train station. I stayed with a friend for one night in October and had a very good experience. Delicious breakfast, clean and cozy room (Norfolk), friendly managers and quiet area. Highly recommended!
